Blactivision has, in my opinion, cashed in a lot of their reputation as a developer which makes great games in exchange for shit tons of money with their recent titles. 

They released Cataclysm with nothing close to the effort and content seen in prior WoW expansions. Starcraft II, as stated above, is 1/3 of a game. D3... this is highly subjective but Blactivision themselves stated that the 'item-hunt end game' failed, what I think they left out completely is that it certainly worked in D2, so why did it fail now. RMAH necessitates a need for use of auction house which necessitates certain drop patterns which leads to above needed use of auction house WHICH CASTRATES THE FUN OUT OF DIABLO. 

so anyhow, any one of these I could have shrugged off but combined they have led to a re-evaluation of my thinking towards  Blactivision. Why? Because I bought all three of those, why would I not, Blactivision makes great games! 

Except now, that thinking has changed. Whereas any Blactivision release was an autobuy, now I'll either rent it first or wait for a free trial. Enough people do that, and they will be affected by it, providing they release games people don't want to buy after trying. Will they come to an end? Not gonna happen, they are still capable of making great games, all they did was tarnish their reputation a bit with a few of their fans, that won't kill them.

Well the rumors are still floating around that Microsoft has its eye on Blizzard, who knows what could happen if they get bought.

That's like asking if the sun will burn out...yes, eventually but not in YOUR lifetime so relax, take a deep breath and know that it's not something you should be concerned with. Especially if you're not even playing any of their games.

Can you please tell me what a failure is then?

 

Technically, a failure is a game that fails to make money or sell. Diablo 3 sold over 7 mil copies at release. I consider that far from failure.

And the SW prequels were a success because it made alot of money but many, many people considered them a failure compared to the sequels. So yes in a profiteerings companies eyes the game is a success but from players, metacritic is one indication, the game is a failure.

As for Blizzard, as a profiteering company they are far from over but making good games? They havent made a really good game since Starcraft 1. They are nothing but a money machine now.

So many comments, I didn´t read all however Blizzard is still the biggest gaming company in the world. It is kinda hard to imagine it end. They have the money and the talent, if they can use it in the best way .. Titan may end up as the MMORPG that will blow the world.

That if the world wouldn´t be blown by the end of 2012.

Don't think they'll come to an end as they're still making profit. If you're talking about others taking the crown, well I personally never considered them to be a king in anything anyway because I always liked games of other studios better so I couldn't care less.

If we talk about financials, LOL, no. Pandaria is hated to hell and it will still be the best selling mmorpg of this year.

From player perspective, probably, but it must have started awhile now.

Well if you look at the games they have made.

Starcraft  was the most watched esport game, but now League of Legends have taken that titel.

World of Warcraft is in decline and i don't anything OMG stuff coming anytime soon.

Diablo 3 sold alot of copies, but the game was a failure in the eyes of the players.

You presuming to speak for all of us gamers, that could be considered a failure. Just because YOU don't like something does not mean the rest of us don't like it either.

That Guild Wars 2 login screen knocked up my wife. Must be the second coming!

Is d3 a success? Technically, yes.

 

However, out of everyone I know that bought the game (8 people including me) NO ONE is playing anymore, and thats only 2 months after release. D3 sold well because of hype alone, and then everyone realized how bad of a game it was.

 

Now you tell me it has 2 more expansions planned? I wonder how well they'll sell.

And that's where your analogy fails. The SW prequels were shunned by BOTH critics and the fans. Not so with D3. Everything else in your post is fueled by your obvious frustration with the development of SC2, D3 and WoW. Good thing you only hold the minority opinion on the matter.

 

I happen to think D3 was a good game for what it was worth, basically a glorified gauntlet. I'm wondering what direction these games would have taken if their development was lead by players that don't want to play their games anyway...

Why Microsoft is 'the MMO graveyard'

prior to that - Microsoft as publisher, dumped Marvel Universe, Vanguard, sold Asherons Call back to Turbine

dumped their own game Mythica preWOW launch

In the last few years, I think Blizzard found a formula (Most money for minimal content) that they will stick with until the end.

 

But, they have a lot of loyal players that will happily and  tirelessly defend the corporation until the end while attacking anything new that comes along.

 

So as a gaming company, I think Blizzard is stale. As a milking maching, they are pretty damn good. Probably the best out there.

Blizzard-Activision made  1 Billion profit last year, one of the few entertainment companies that still makes huge profits.

I don't understand where this pessimism is coming from.

'Course, running a pool for money on the "death of Blizzard" requires a solid and non-forum definition of "dead".  Good luck with that.

It's been predicted (wrongly), what, a million previous times on forums?  Every day, on some forum, somewhere.  Fool's Bet at even odds.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

the thing is diablo 3 is not subscription based game .so as soon as blizzard get the game to playable situation .people will come back to the game . starcraft 2 is doing great .nothing wrong with the game and people are enjoying playing it . wow is gonna get overhaul with mist of panderia which i am playing its beta and its awesome . the new dungeons and areas they are very awesome . they have been able to maintain 10 million subscribers . with scroll of resurrection offer we will surely see more people joinning the game . still if someone thinks blizzard is dying . he /she should seriously consult a doctor just like my ex g/f who is now a smoker and drug addicted person . thanks god i had dumped her 5 years ago ~
