Who did wrong? The advertiser hired to sell the game or the consumer who put faith in advertising?

Its a master move from Blizzard, because we all know the release dates of the previous expansions where all much later. They all aimed for the christmass target (except the lich king which did not make the that target)

I don't think it is going to keep very many from trying GW2 personally. The beauty of GW2's pricing model is that it allows people to leave for a little while to try out other game expansions and then come back.

So I think what you may see at most when Panderia is released is a slight dip in population for about a week, but within 3 months it will be right back to where it was, and maybe with some more.

Anyway - it's going to be really hard to compare the two when GW2 doesn't have a sub. Anyone who ever signs up will be on their rolls, no matter if they are playing or not. You could have 15 million people who sign up for GW2. 14 million could play one day and never again. How do you compare that to a sub game?

Gonna be tough to tell.

Personally I might have waited until xmas just give people time to get tired of GW2. I think it could be potentially bad to thow out the same ol' same ol' right at the time where something pretty different is coming out. Even with that said, I still believe that more people will try GW2 than will be retained. I hope they prove me wrong. But I firmly believe history repeats itself. So if I were Blizzard, I'd wait 3 months for the mass exodus which has occured on 99.9% of mmo's since the release of WoW.

Won't effect me at all. I love GW2, and am very much over all things WoW.


Have to interest in this panda sillyness ...

I don't see it affecting either game tbh.


The simple fact is GW2 comes with no subscription, so any WoW fans can play GW2 for a month, pick up MoP, play it to max level, do some gear grind, do some raids etc, and then it's back to the old routine. Log in for an hour or two, do daily's, maybe hit a BG, chat to guild and log off.


They won't be losing money paying a second sub to GW2 so there's nothing to stop them playing both except time. And by the time they've cleared the MoP content and got back to the stage of "old routine" there's no reason they can't play both.


Lets look at WoW players now. I stopped playing but have friends that still play and they typically:


Log in to see who's on

Do daily's

Run a dungeon

Pick up a PUG raid

Maybe do Deathwing, if the haven't cleared it and aren't raid locked out until the next reset

Log off and play D3/TF2/CoD/Whatever (maybe insert GW2 here?)

I don't see it being an either / or situation. There's no reason you can't like both, play both, enjoy both. Personally I won't be buying MoP but I have plenty of friends who will, but still plan on playing GW2 as well. I don't understand the rabid arguments that go on about games. X game sux, My game is better etc. So immature. There's really no reason not to play both if that's what you want to do, given the payment models.

I guess this speaks volumes as to what Blizzard execs fear GW2 might do to WOW. Time will tell though :-)
  just like they feared warhammer just like they feared aoc just like they feared lotro swtor rift etc etc etc etc you dont have to fear something to be good at positioning your product in a market. one thing I feel is a certainty : wow will be at or very near the top of the mmo heirarchy for years to come. and no I am not a fanboy. if anything I am fairly disgusted with what wow has become and what it has done to the genre. I do still have an account though, and I do still play from time to time .. because nothing else even comes close to measuring up. sad statement indeed. bring on prepop and aa .. hopefully they will actually shake things up a little.
None of those games offer any relief from the quest grind.  In everyone of those games people started asking themselves "If I keep doing quests and whatnot why don't I just continue on with WoW?".


This is the big difference.


If this were The secret world we were talking even there you might have a point although its more of a stretch.  Every single one of those games had an almost verbatim copy of WoW questing system as the main way of getting XP.

Even Rift with its fairly sigifniciant rift system was still easily like 70-80% questing for xp.


The reason this could really backfire on Blizzard is that DE really do feel alot different than making a shopping list of quests.  Releasing this close to GW2's release will make that difference even more obvious and sickening to people.  As opposed to letting the feeling where off and having some nostalgia kick in. 

People are dead tired of shopping lists.  All those games gave people shopping lists. 


warhammer and rift both had public quests to break up quest grinding.

as ive said in other threads, gw2 is the same thing .. "i feel like im taking crazy pills" .. just because the zone gives you the quest instead of an npc doesn't change the fact that its a quest, kill some mobs, grab some stuff, zerg down some veteran .. nothing has changed except the delivery.

yes it's more open, but you are still in a subzone of a zone dedicated to your level, or you are leeching off of level appropriate people missing 90% of your attacks on a mob 4 levels higher than you.


better, but blizzard isn't breaking a sweat.

there is a thread like this every time a game releases. better panic!!! PQs are gonna change the genre!!!! better panic!!! the third pilar (still gotta rofl about this) is gonna change the genre!!!! etc etc etc ..


You feel like you are taking crazy pills because you absolutely refuse to believe that rearrnging foundational basic elements of system has a huge effect.

Basics are the most important things.  Timing of things is essential.

GW2 events changes the timing and delivery and causation of things.


This is a gigantic difference.  That you completely gloss over them is why you feel like you are taking crazy pills. You have stretched and disregarded reality to such an extent that your brain can't take.

You are basically saying that deviled eggs and omelettes are the same meal because they are made almost entirely of eggs.  You should feel like you are taking crazy pills.

One is an expansion to a dated game. One is the new hotness. I don't see anyone who isn't playing wow to have interest in the expansion or game at this point. Gw2 on the other hand will only get louder after launch and continue to grow and flourish. Wow's best days are in the past and until they come out with a new game or wow2.0 it will stay that way. Diablo 3 also left a bad taste in many a mouth and will probably hurt this expansion as well. If anything gw2 will hurt blizz big time with a better product for cheaper that has a larger appeal to gamer's in general.

Not much of an effect I see. Many people buy games at release (or earlier *shakes head*).

Borderlands 2 releases at Sept 21st. I hope it won´t be affected much by WoP.
It hopefully delivers true random item hunting in Coop - the opposite of WoW and GW.

There are lots of reasons why people won't be playing multiple mmo's, main one being time. I think gw2 will totally murder wow in the west, but I'm sure blizz will be quoting Asian numbers for a long time.

I don't think the two games will have that much affect on each other.  Present WoW players will probably continue to play WoW and GW2 players come from assorted games and due to the buy to play setup, many won't even leave their present game, they'll just play BOTH.  Pure speculation on my part, but really....I sincerely don't think the games will have much affect on each other.

Facts do not require fiction for balance.

I wonder if it'll generate a small spike in GW2 sales as people that held out for MoP finish the content, get bored and decide to try something else?

It will def snag sales and people playing away from GW2. I myself will just play Kung fu panda til lvl 90 then raid a bit then step away.  I am not playing another rinse repeat of the same stuff in GW2 all the way to lvl cap and play about 5 expansions that  they release over the next few years, just doesn't make logical sense to me. If I am going to play a boring mmo, it might as well be the best boring one which is WoW.  When a new refreshing product is released I will start over, but not until then,

"How will the 28 September release of Pandaren influence GW2?"

You mean besides the execs at Arenanet facepalming at the notion that Blizzard could affect their plans or playerbase? yeah, not really I believe they will have some people playing that expansion, but it won't be in record numbers like we've seen in the past. WoW's wrinkles are showing and no amount of facelifting or Tammy Fae Baker make-up will help it now. And when people have seen what I've seen in their expansion, Which isn't very much btw, they'll be leaving to return to whatever games they were playing before, unless they are glutons for punishment.

I may dare to add a prediction... Pandaria will not even remotely come close to the WotLK sales, or even just the Cataclysm sales. Many WoW players are very unhappy with the radical changes to the game in Pandaria.

WoW was at its top during WotLK (best expansion ever, with Ulduar arguably being the best raid dungeon I've ever played in any game). It will never go back there.

I felt this way but nostalgia brought me back. i did buy the MOP expansion but I am not sure that I will stay with WOW for long. I hated what Blizzard did with the talents in Cata and they are gutting them even worse in MOP. Really the main reason I bought MOP was to try out the monk class (but I won't be playing a panda).

Even though I bought the expansion I do not intend to log in day one. I will wait a bit. I expect my zeal for GW2 will fade in about 3 months and when it does I will go back to WOW.

 This might not be a bad thing because Asura's are the ugliest thing in GW2 so far. They are almost as awful as the dainty lady feet syndrome affecting Humans, Norns and Sylvari heh.

I will probably be done with gw2 after having played like a mad man a month. At least pve wise. Then MoP expansion will launch, the first game to really take end game serious. In my opinion no serious pveer will play gw2 more than casually after the first month (sadly, since the game is great, it just that there's no end game progression on the pve side. And no, I'm not asking for gear grind, but progression)
