    It is official. WoW is the KISS of the mmorpg genre. There is no denying it anymore.

    It all makes sense now - Blizzard are 're-branding' WoW to appeal to a younger age group (age 8 to 14 years?)

    It explains the Megablox.

    It explains 'Mists of Pandera' which is all about fighing pandas.

    It explains the simplification of the talent trees.

    It explains why 'horror themes' such as Duskwood, Plaguelands, and the horror stories that went with them haven't been done in a 'stronger' form.

    This is a far cry from WoW 2004, where the die-hard PvPers would get their kicks by ganking noobs in Ashenvale or Stranglethorn Vale without mercy.

    Cool, but does it come with it's own in-game mini-pet I wonder.

     

    Okay, wait a second.  Is this a belated April Fools joke?

    Lol, to cheap for proper lego.

    There is NO miracle patch.

    95% of what you see in beta won't change by launch.

    Hope is not a stategy.

    I'd agree that rebranding WoW to appeal to 8-14 year olds would make sense if the average player was 35-40, as then they not only tap in the kids, but the parents... but the average WoW player is 27. I don't know many 27 year olds with kids aged 8-14... 

    TBH, I'm not sure Blizz really knows what it's doing right now. I think they are just stalling until Blizzcon 2013, when they announce Titan.

    So true!  I'm not sure when it happened, but the movie execs and marketing folks took over the videogame industry.

    If you don't worry about it, it's not a problem.

    That's cool I might get the Lich King, Orc, Worgen on gryphon and tauren with wyvern ones because the characters look really cute.

    LOL at the haters, you know for a fact that you wouldn't be teasing any other game if it did the same thing, get off the hate wow bandwagon already, and you call wow childish...

    Drekker... either you're an extremely sad 20-year old who can't accept it or one of the newer hip all purple or Imma cry kids that made WoW the thing of beauty that it is today ( and by beauty I mean god awful shit worse than it was back in vanilla because in vanilla you at least felt you were progressing, now you can hit level 85 in a month, wtf? and before you cry "bittervet!" or something like that: I played WoW pre TBC for about 5 months and actually enjoyed it and post-Cata for about 25 days and absolutely hated it, thank christ I didn't pay for a year)
