World of Warcraft has reportedly shed another 1.3 Million subscribers in the last three months.
While there is some theorizing going on about why this may be, as a current World of Warcraft player myself I can tell you exactly why: “Daily Quests”. The latest expansion went too far in forcing the players to do these “Daily Quests” every day to advance. The animosity many players I know feel towards this new model is very deep. It’s no wonder they are losing subscribers hand over fist – they took an entertaining game and made it a daily chore to do. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
If I wasn’t involved in a guild with people I like to hang out with, I would have hit the eject button myself a few months back.
