Blizzard Tries To Refresh WoW: Fans Think It's April First

Author: The WoW Elitist
Poor Blizzard. They can't seem to catch a break. After several lawsuits and bad publicity, the clouds seemed to finally be parting with their well-received Dragonflight expansion (our review here). And coming like a one-two punch, they announced that they were finally adding the much-loved Glorbo to the game. But that's where things started to go badly.

From the original Reddit post (link), it's clear where things went wrong. Not sharing many details led many to think that it was a hoax.

There are many reasons for this. First of all, to really add Glorbo to the game, and not feel like a rip-off, they would have to spend a lot of developer and artist time (not to mention music composers!). Old fans of Warcraft would riot if Glorbo were done poorly. After all, this is the central preoccuption of the Warcarft series!

Secondly, aspects of Glorbo have already been cannibalized and used in other characters. Sylvanus, Hogger, and Millhouse Manastorm, just to name a few. Will Glorbo really have the impact it should given players have experienced it before, spread across other characters?

Lastly, the original writers of the Glorbo trilogy have left Blizzard long ago.

Oh, and let's not forget PVP. PVP players don't care, and PVP is a big portion of the game these days. Why put Glorbo into the game if it's a huge drain on Blizzard's resources, but PVP players don't care?

Anyway, thanks for reading, and as always, stay tuned for the latest WoW news, about Glorbo and beyond!
