As we all know, Blizzard is one of if not the best game developers in the world. Blizzard is the company that created fan favorite games such as Overwatch, Heroes of the Storm, Diablo and the Starcraft franchise. However, World of Warcraft is Blizzard’s crown jewel and it should come as no surprise that the game developer is putting all its attention towards the new Battle for Azeroth expansion.
Battle for Azeroth
World of Warcraft is the world’s most popular MMORPG and it managed to keep this title for more than fourteen years now. The way that Blizzard has managed to keep the game’s player base entertained for such a long period of time is by launching a constant stream of updates and new expansions.
With that being said, a brand-new expansion called Battle for Azeroth is scheduled to come out next month and Blizzard is doing its best advertise it. In fact, the reason why World of Warcraft is making headlines today is because Blizzard recently launched a couple of television ads for Battle for Azeroth and they are hilarious!
Millions of people play Wworld of Warcraft and Blizzards wants to increase that number by advertising the game on TV. The cool thing about these latest ads that Blizzard created for Battle for Azeroth is the fact that they are focused the competition between the Horde and the Alliance.
For those who don’t know, the Horde and the Alliance are the two factions that World of Warcraft fans get to choose from. These factions are always fighting against each other and Blizzard is centering the new expansion around this rivalry.
The ads are placed in the real-world and they show how much people who play on different factions hate each other. The ads are not just hilarious, but they also enforce a great sense of pride for both the Horde and the Alliance.
Bringing PVP Back
Even though World of Warcraft is an awesome game, there are still some issues with it. The game’s world PVP has died ever since flying mounts arrived in the TBC (The Burning Crusade) which is the game’s first expansion and Blizzard has tried to bring it back ever since.
Battle for Azeroth will feature a new warmode which gives players the option to enable world PVP even on PVE servers. There will be many benefits to keeping warmode enabled such as receiving extra rewards like more experience when questing and better item satchels.
Another important reason why World of Warcraft players might consider enabling Warmode is because all their PVP talents will be enabled at all times. This means that players who are looking to play their class at maximum potential will be “forced” to enable Warmode and fight the opposing faction whenever they meet up.
Addressing the Flying Mount Issue
There is no way for Blizzard to remove all the flying mounts in World of Warcraft because players have dedicated their time to collecting the rarest ones and they would be upset if they were gone.
However, Blizzard is adding a “Pathfinder” achievement which disables flying in the new zones for people who haven’t completed the achievement.
This is a great addition because completing a “Pathfinder” achievement requires players to finish all quests in the new areas, explore the uncharted maps and go to all the important questlines and scenarios.
Battle for Azeroth is taking World of Warcraft in the right direction and there’s no doubt about that. The pre-patch has recently launched we can be sure that Blizzard’s subscriber numbers are going up right now.
