Is Blizzard as a PC company dying?

#1GwynsSonSolairePosted 11/10/2013 1:11:40 AM
Starcraft 2 is basically dead.

Diablo 3 isnt in the best state, and wont be fixed until the expansions(which looks great), but that probably wont come out for another year

Warcraft subscribers are continually dropping.

When i think of Blizzard i think of great, competitive, long lasting online experiences.

I havnt played WoW before.. will try it soon.

Has this quality drop only happened after Activision acquired Blizzard? Or is there no quality drop?

What is you guys opinions

MOBAs such as LoL and DoTA have completely destroyed the player count of Starcraft

-Diablo 3 sold 12 million on PC
-WOW is by far the most successful MMO and is making them tons of money
-Starcaft 2 is totally fine and far from dead.
-Hearthstone is gonna be huge.
-Heroes of the Storm has the potential to be good.

So...nope.

Doesn't surprise me.

Starcraft has always had a lot less to do with your actual skill level and a lot more to do with how fast you can click.

Let's see here...

Warcraft II > Warcraft
Diablo II > Diablo
Warcraft III > Warcraft II

*Activision merger*

Every WoW xpac after Burning Crusade < Burning Crusade
Starcraft II < Starcraft
Diablo III < Diablo II

Notice a pattern?
