01/21/2013 08:51 AMPosted by ArobeeBlizzard started to decline when they turned Warcraft into an MMORPG. Huge mistake made there, the expansions were mistakes, and they kept on that same track when they made SC2 and D3. The release of World of Warcraft marked the time when Blizzard decided they didn't care about what the customer wanted any more and only cared about their wallets. I will never play WoW because it's not Blizzard, that's not the kind of game Blizzard is known for, and honestly neither are SC2 or D3. D3 has potential, but they're going to have to work themselves to the bone to REALLY fix it. SC2 is a lost cause, as is WoW. I'd like to see Blizzard return to their former glory, when they were a GOOD company that cared about their customers and made good games.
Every single thing you said in this post is opinion. Opinions are not facts.
"the kind of game Blizzard is known for" is really a closed minded way of looking at it. It's like saying BMW should stop making bikes because they are known for cars.
Branching out is what companies do, especially gaming companies. If Blizzard would have stuck with strictly RTS games they would not be near the company they are now, because RTS are not as big of a market as MMOs are, and believe it or not, they make games for other people than you.
