I'm Praying that Titan is Blizzards Ace

DakkalordGDakkalordG GlentiesPosts: 3Member

Now as much as most people hate Blizzard Entertainment and look at the Failure of Diablo 3 and the Ageing of World of Warcraft , Im still in love with the company . Because even though D3 was a flop and WoW is in its twilight years , Blizzard has also released Starcraft 2 , an extremely enjoyable RTS , and D2 , A hack in slash that has a place in most peoples hearts.

As well as that , WoW is still by far my favourite MMO and I have pre-ordered MoP because I still find enjoyment in playing WoW... Im hoping that Titan takes the torch from WoW and keeps Blizzards MMO scene alive and still allows me to proudly say "Blizzard are the best gaming Devs to date"

    Honestly, if MoP and D3 are what to expect out of Blizzard now - they are dead in the water and resting on their laurels. I bought D3, played a month and stopped. It really didn't even have a good storyline compared to D2.

     

    If Blizzard is to really out do everyone, than Titan have to be amazing. WHat I have recently seen from Blizzard just makes me thing, 'MEH!!'

    What is Titan?   No seriously do you know?  Why make assumptions just yet?  For all we know its an expansion to Hello Kitty Online.

    Tried EQ2 recently?  Much better game than anything out there right now IMO.  Lots of updates etc.  Free to play to give it a try though you pretty much need a subscription for it to be great at higher level honestly.  Give it a try and see if you still like WOW better.  (I enjoyed the year I spent in WOW but EQ2 is so much more now WOW just kind of rested on its laurels while EQ2 is trying to still become the best MMO out there.)

    Possibly off topic, possibly not as it directly equates to what you consider success.

    I know that D3 generated a lot of complaints, there were bugs and connection problems but in what universe is selling 3.5 million copies in 24 hours, 6.3 million in a week, over 10 million to date, the fastest selling PC game to date receiving scores of 8-9/10 by virtually every major publication and critic considered a flop?

    Titan shows nothing more than vaporware, coming at a time where Activision is trying to sell off Blizzard. Who would buy a game development company that doesn't have some project they are working on.  I think it's just a ploy to keep the potential sales value higher. I doubt we will ever see anything more than what we already know - nothing.

    True story,

     

    I've never enjoyed the Diablo series... but 10 million sales!!? $600,000,000.00!?!?! (assuming $60.00 per game)

    Most game companies would LOVE to see a game "flop" like that.

    My guess is people mean that D3 sucked...not flopped.  IMO, D3 sucked so bad that D4 will not get a fraction of D3's sales.

    ROTFL

    Diablo 3 was not a failure. If you think it was then Titan will most definately be a failure to you as well. See? You are already hyping it up and expecting it to be better than it will be. It has already failed you too.

    Annd thats fine.  Sucked is a subjective measure thus is unarguable, therefore cannot be applied to the gaming population without at the least a descriptive survey. 

    However by every objective measure seen thus far the game did very well.

    Depends on what context one is discussing flop. Did it sell a lot of copies? Sure it did and you provide plenty of evidence to support your view. But what about discussing it in terms of value and entertainment, did it meet expectations? To many (me included) that is a huge no and I'd go as far as to say that to many people who have supported Blizzrd products in the past, this was a slap in the face. I don't think that just because box sells were high, the state and content of the game should be overlooked and this, as far as I am concerned, may have been the last Blizzard product I buy after what I feel has been shoddy products for years. I bought them on reputation and past games I enjoyed by the company but that has become a thing of the past in my eyes. Titan would have to be pretty damned amazing for me personally to want to buy it because I really have zero problems with nostalgia when I think about Blizzard. Numbers don't tell the whole story.

    Sucked would have been a better word.

    Titan illedgedly has had +/-90 people working on it for who knows how long. Completely different team than other Blizz games I imagine so comparisons would be apples/oranges. Hopefully Titan is good, why would anyone not want it to be?

    I dare them to steal my excitement for EQN however. Talk about the two most maligned companies battling for the title of next big MMO! Lol, kind of funny if you ask me.

    Yes, EQ2 is a great game and worth anyone checking out. Very deep with a lot to do.

    Activision isn't selling off Blizzard. Vivendi is trying to sell off their 61% holding in Activision/Blizzard.

    dont see how this turned into d3 sucked thread, D3 is a lot of fun put about 100 hours into it. Still enjoy it. There was nothing that preveneted me from playing it when I bought it, I had no game breaking bugs.

    Maybe some loot did not drop fast enough, but in general I think people who disliked it were 22 and younger part of the whine generation who think they are entitled to the entire universe and every game should cater to each single person perfectly all for free to play .

    Otherwise, Titan is in full production mode according to blizzard peeps and and MoP just neeted them anouther 100million + in revenue.

    See my statement above.

    See the portion I added before you quoted.

     Opinion isn't something you can argue as factual, it's an opinion.  There is only one context when you label something as a flop, and that is it didn't sell or sold considerably less then it's predicessor, neither of which happened in the case of D3. 

    You're attempting to argue your opinion against facts.  The guy your trying "prove wrong" gave you facts that can't be argued against with opinions. 

    Just because you didn't like D3 doesn't make it a flop because you inject opinion into it.  10 million copies sold is a fact, and it's a fact that any game that sells that many copies is a success. 

    Few games manage to sell 10 million copies, let alone 10 million in a months time.  Some of you here, where people are notoriously critical and have a general dislike of Blizzard, may not of liked the game, however it didn't sell all of it's copies in the first week.  People were still buying it several weeks later.  You don't sell a couple million copies of a game a few weeks after it releases because most people that purchased it disliked it.  If so many people didn't like the game, it wouldn't have managed to reach 10 million boxes sold, it would have sold heavily in its initial release and then simply died off. 

    The fact is the game was received very well by the general gaming public, even if many people found some faults in it, and your opinion is entirely irrelevent to that fact. 

     

    MoP is not Titan, Blizzard has stated that it's an entirely new IP and not like WoW. 

    The OP did not make any assumptions about Titan, he stated his HOPES that it will be a good game that will continue Blizzards record of succesfull development. 

    People around here are so full of spite and vinager that people can't even make a simple post expressing an opinion with anything to do with Blizzard without a bunch of people jumping on them to condemn their post and feelings.
