Losing 2 million players in a quarter where Shadowlands had a content patch, BC had a major phase release for catchups, OW and Diablo have hype building for Beta testings and releases to begin etc etc. Like there is just no excuse you can make for why you have 2 million people quit your games in a quarter with all of that going on. I feel like the lawsuit loss of players already has taken it's toll and we're past that now right?
Imagine loosing sub when your last tier has just been released :DMan that expac is a fiasco...So much for that let's loot be loot and world first race (or whatever name it is). Players have just been so discouraged playing this game with all that grind and systems actively working against player enjoyment...
This doesn't look bad at all.Like, I feel like people are projecting their own issues into this.
Who thought that CoD was going to be the weak spot for ABK after all the fixation on problems at WoW?
I have played Call of Duty non-stop since Black Ops 4 but Vanguard made me quit completely due to how they both treated Zombie Mode but also the Multiplayer was quite lacking too.Hopefully next game will be better, I mean Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War had their issues but none at the level that Vanguard is having.
I think this is what they should have done for the first Diablo mobile game (and should do for the upcoming WoW mobile game), knowing that their player base has to keep upgrading their computers (or at least drivers) for the best experience. That it should be common knowledge that a vast majority of them have little to no effort put into them so, when you do find a good one, you risk not being believed. That said, I'm not surprised about the CoD sales because Activision has a history of not even trying to make quality-of-life improvements yet finding the fans don't care. Of course, I understand the preference for F2P games because that's what I try to stick to. (I just wish devs wouldn't think ,"So what if our game sucks? It's free.", though). On another note, I was under the impression that there were 26 million players. I can see that not being the case since companies think it's cool to ban people just for living in Russia. How...How is that supposed to hurt Putin, if he clearly doesn't care about anyone else? Then again, they might not have learned from 2019 when people actively protested at BlizzCon.
WoW and other blizzard games are far from perfect.But didn't they get a huge increase in new active players when Corona came and all the lockdowns? so it would make sense when most of the world is "back to normal", less people are staying at home and playerbase would have dropped to a more "normal" level.
Can't wait till people with crappy phones start complaining it's laggy and crashes so we can rip on them.
