Blizzard’s Adjustments To WOW Cataclysm Classic May Make This Expansion The Final Game Directly

  • Are you still playing World of Warcraft?
  • If you stop playing, when did you stop playing?
  • I think it started when the official Cataclysm-only servers replaced the most classic Wrath of the Lich King servers.

Blizzard’s Adjustments To WOW Cataclysm Classic May Make This Expansion The final Game Directly

Blizzard doesn’t seem to see that this decision is actually going downhill. Players along the way will find that the Vanilla version of WoW, the Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King has brought us the best experience. Blizzard, which should have been heading to the top, made the wrong decision in order to promote a more modern game when it was Cataclysm.

I believe everyone has the same idea about the specific reasons: the changes Cataclysm has brought to World of Warcraft itself. With the arrival of Cataclysm, many parts of the world were devastated, such as Mulgore, Northshire Abbey, and many other fondly remembered places in Azeroth. These are places where everyone has lived and fought for a long time, but now they have become ruins. I think many players are reluctant to give up, even though we can see what this continent once looked like in other servers. But I think the real reason that makes players quit is not entirely this.

Looking back at the past, Activision Blizzard set up dedicated servers for Wrath or The Burning Crusade dedicated, and then set up dedicated servers for Wrath of the Lich King, and then replaced them. This resulted in World of Warcraft Classic still maintaining the same storyline. progress on. This makes us feel a sense of fragmentation when we are in Cataclysm. In all respects, The Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King were the best moments of World of Warcraft in my opinion. Now in Cataclysm-only servers, everything in the past no longer exists, as if it never happened. Likewise, the past only exists in memories. This is Blizzard’s worst decision in my opinion. He doesn’t know what is good about himself, what should be kept, and what should be deleted.

I believe many old players can understand this feeling, especially in contrast. Who can understand my shock that the story of World of Warcraft has been extended to Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne? Blizzard actually used the ending of Wrath of the Lich King as the beginning of the story of Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. This is so clever. It’s like our worlds have been connected, and no matter which version we’re in, we seem to be in the same world. This is in sharp contrast to Cataclysm-only server. That’s why I say that Blizzard is simply going to ruin the game World of Warcraft by doing this. You can see on Reddit that many players are complaining, and this is not just my opinion.

Blizzard used Deathwing to destroy Azeroth, changing the appearance of Azeroth. Although Blizzard has made some changes that seem to be better, such as allowing more players to choose other classes. This seems good, but if some with lore significance can also be selected in classes, then why not let us become such a strong existence from the beginning? This simply destroys the balance and fairness of the game.

WOW Cataclysm caused ruins

It is also very unreasonable from a world view perspective. Before Wrath of the Lich King, we couldn’t play as both a Night Elf character and a mage, because at that time, the two were incompatible, story-wise. It was not until Cataclysm that the conflict between the two eased somewhat.

In addition, there is another point that makes me the most sad as a veteran player. After Cataclysm arrived, Azeroth was in ruins, you can only reach anywhere by flying on a mount. The world seems to have lost the meaning of adventure. I’m sure everyone has had the experience of climbing a mountain. When you reached the top of the mountain after spending several hours, looking into the distance from the top of the mountain and recalling the scenes in your mind, you would sigh, and then you were almost crying, and you would realize that this journey was not actually lonely. Everything I do is to meet beauty. Adventure is what this game is about. This game has been with us for so long that it is impossible not to have feelings for it.

Nowadays, the Pay To Win trend is becoming more and more serious, making every aspect of the game full of payment elements. You can become powerful by spending WOW Cataclysm Gold in upcoming WoW Classic Cataclysm expansion. The result is the meaning of this journey is no longer simple. The former enthusiasm for exploring the world is now gradually extinguished. If what you get after a long period of hard work is never as good as what you can buy with money, then the meaning of taking risks will no longer exist. Blizzard only cares about using our emotions to gain profits. This is the saddest thing for all players.

WOW Cataclysm Classic Pay To Win

The solution to all this is actually very simple - provide dedicated servers for Wrath of the Lich King, Vanilla and Cataclysm. That’s all. If Blizzard ignores players’ opinions, then I believe Cataclysm will be the end of World of Warcraft.

Veteran players have been with this game for too long. It is no longer a tool for killing time, but a sustenance for our emotions. We fight, live, meet, travel, and visit on the continent of Azeroth. Although Blizzard has reduced expansion packs, it has also reduced memories.

WOW Cataclysm we love World of Warcraft and we want it to be better

All in all, we love World of Warcraft and we want it to be better.
