Blizzard games appreciation thread.
Currently playing through Starcraft 2 and WoW. In my opinion, there hasn't been an AAA dev with this much attention to detail and focus on the both look and feel of a videogame.
Since their early days, Blizzard always implemented fun gameplay techniques into a greatly designed world, both visual and acoustic.
With each game they make, they set a standard which other developers take years, if not decades, just to get a chance on throwing them off the throne.
Amazing art style, soundtracks, comedy and gameplay mechanics is what makes their games so enjoyable for me.
You can be butt-blasted about the popularity and "jewing", but deep down you do know Blizzard = quality.
But if you had to choose one Blizzard game to hate, which would top them all?
>5 posts and not a single insult towards OP
/v/ sure has changed, huh?
im proud of u guys maybe 2 years from now we'll finally be able to discuss videogames, after all the homos leave of course warcraft 3 the best
With microtransactions. Oh boy.
Blizzard is a slow sinking ship. They're working real hard to alienate their entire fanbase. HOTS is shit. Overwatch looks like TF2. Can't wait to see what fucking hats they offer.
like every other big dev, they were good when they were 10 smelly neckbeards in a room crunching on a deadline and working for free because they enjoyed it
now they're corporate dudebros who only care about "quarters" and profit margins
>until wow is kill
>the latest patch
No one argues about Starcraft and vanilla WoW... much. The main things they argue is about Diablo 3 (Which was a dissapointment), HoTS (Which is Blizzard trying to get the MOBA fanbase) and the expansion packs for WoW.
HotS is a fun game for casual people. It's not aiming to "steal" moba playerbase, since it's not even moba to begin with. You can play a couple of matches and go on with your day, without wanting to kill some guy and skullfuck his entire family members after decapitating them just because he ruined your match. So, actually, it won't alienate the players from each other, and certainly not the dev itself.
As for the Overwatch, it won't be a second TF2 since all the ponyfags won't transfer. You cannot create dick-sucking groups and avatarfag like on steam.
WoW is kill when they say it's kill. They can live off on a couple of million subscribers probably, and they never dropped below 6 mil.
i just like that Hearthstone is relatively fast when it comes to card games. I can knock out a few matches in 30 min. I just hate people that think way too fucking much and try to plan shit out in that game.
>HOTS is scrapping the bottom of the barrel.
You just said they're stealing.
And it's obviously fun for the people who play it. You need to learn your opinion is not universal, whether it's based on the actual experience or not (in this case, it's clearly based on pulling thoughts out of your ass).
Back to le reddit you go
>i just like that Hearthstone is relatively fast when it comes to card games
That's why it's a bad game. Every game plays roughly the same. Too many ways to wipe the board, too many ways to deal direct damage. Creature cards mean little unless they have some sort of ridiculous prefix to prevent their otherwise inevitable death next turn due to the abundance of direct damage/wipe cards in the game.

You see stealing somewhere?
Shouldn't you be on the blizzard forums defending the recent economic collapse of WoW and hints at RMT returning to D3?
I quoted it in my last post though.
>Shouldn't you be on the blizzard forums defending
Why should I be acting as a lawyer for someone who won't even pay me?
Can you elaborate on the economic collapse though?
Nice shilling blizzfags
WoW is old news. When WoD came out, people thought it'd be good, you know? It'd be BC 2.0. Instead, we got shitty Orcs fighting orcs doing orc things and farmville within WoW.
Even as a blizzshill you gotta admit that the "Garrison update" is a slap on the face.
I'm not even going to start mentioning other worthwhile MMOs out there, but anyone can see that WoW has finally lost it. WoD was the last chance - and they blew it.
You can post your little WoD subscription graphs all you want, but truth is, next tally, the subs are gonna be rock bottom.
Well fellow Anonymous, my favorite Blizzard-Activision game is without a doubt Diablo 3™.
The Real Money Auction House™ was an example of just how great Blizzard-Activision has become.
And who could forget World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor™, an example of why listening to your fanbase is always a bad idea. I mean look at all the players happy with this epic expansion that does nothing new.
>farmville within WoW
That was MoP. We AssCreed now.
>Orcs fighting orcs doing orc things
>anyone can see that WoW has finally lost it
Except the people with money.
> the last chance
That you personally gave them?
>your little WoD subscription graphs
Nice to see you care. Better luck next bait.
let's make diablo 2 tristram uglier than diablo 1.
let's make boring grid level design (junglenigger town)
Let's make tp's take 2 mandatory inventory space instead of making it a spell
it would be a shame if you played a wizard to not have enough str to have those 4 rowed belts
instead of spending your gold for powerful merchant items, powerups and spells throughout all the game let's hoard a million of it, give merchants junk and give more room to hoard gold as you progress in the game. you can also hoard greens, gems, runewords, and even fill your inventory with charms!
It would be a better endgame to do the same level again and again instead of replaying the whole game finding that one shrine
fountain guy will do it for free
tl;dr they turn irremediably into shit.
I personally can't understand how can anyone endure the punishment of all of those months without content updates during siege of orgrimmar
It was honestly painful to watch from the outside
>so I suppose you're not a complete waste of space
Unlike a blizzard game.
>diablo 2 tristram uglier than diablo 1
Sounds good. Ugly is usually more imaginative.
> boring grid level design (junglenigger town)
New York City?
>tp's take 2 mandatory inventory space instead of making it a spell
Because after Toy Box, pets and mounts menus your inventory is still full.
Too tired for all the rest but at least you're still playing which is all that BlizzMoney cares for anyway.
