The wow whore give-a-way

Does this make anyone want to go back? Can you see the crying now from the diehards on the boards mad because 80’s are being given out like samples at Costco.~J.A. Laraque

Is Blizzard getting Desperate?

So we see Star Wars is trying to pad their numbers by having a Free Trial Weekend, but before that Blizzard tried handing out the goodies like your ex trying to give up the booty to get you back. Now, we know World of Warcraft is dropping subscribers like Netflix before their reversal, but it gets even worse.

The wow whore give-a-way

We already know 600 employees are getting the boot, which is like the writing on the wall in blood and now WoW is giving out the goods. If you come back you will not only get a flying mount so you can sit in your major city with 20 other fools running around on it. But if you bring back a sucker, I mean friend with you get a free level 80 character, a free upgrade to a Cataclysm-enabled account that allows access to all of the game’s current content and 7 days of free play time.

Does this make anyone want to go back? Can you see the crying now from the diehards on the boards mad because 80’s are being given out like samples at Costco. It is kind of strange to see two big companies with two big mmo’s both begging for attention. I guess if we are really bored and a glutton for punishment we can really clean up.

Nah, I rather play Men of War.

    Well, it seems like Blizzard really outsmarted themselves this time!

    1) They fire 900 employees. Maybe that is around 20% of their staff?

    2) Being able to now buy (almost) max-level characters has created such a stir that Blizzard is getting lots of subscriptions back.

    3) Except that they are now getting MORE subscribers with LESS staff to handle them! The proof? As of yesterday, people could not even log onto Battle.net to receive their scrolls! Yup, their servers could not handle all of these requests because demand has outstripped supply 🙂 Blizzard, you have really outdone yourself this time!
