The Daily Grind: What are your hopes for BlizzCon 2015?


BlizzCon 2015 begins later today, and I have to admit that I’m nervous. Hearthstone, Overwatch, and Heroes of the Storm aren’t exactly my cup of summoned water, and I don’t really care about the Warcraft movie except in that it bolsters the MMO industry, but Diablo is a franchise near and dear to my heart, and I’m one of a handful of staffers at MOP who’ve played and loved World of Warcraft through its long history.

Guys, I even liked Mists of Pandaria.

But Draenor didn’t do anything for me, and I dread that Legion might suck. I want it to not suck, both as a player who’d like to go back and as an MMO writer. WoW is treated as a bellwether for the health of the western MMO industry, and I want to see WoW’s numbers going back up — and staying there — not crashing down again if Legion is lackluster.

That’s my hope for BlizzCon: Let Legion be awesome.

How about you? What are your hopes for BlizzCon? What do you want to see the most? And what do you actually expect?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
