The Daily Grind: Did BlizzCon make you want to resub to WoW?


It’s a running joke among MMO players that BlizzCon is bad for our wallets, not because we overindulge in murloc plushies but because resisting the allure of the resub is hard. Blizzard weaves a spell for two days straight, getting everyone pumped for World of Warcraft all over again, usually with promises of content and quality-of-life fixes that aren’t actually going to show up for another year.

But that nostalgia pull!

It’s a miracle that I didn’t cough up $15 this weekend, and were I not preoccupied with Heart of Thorns, I might have capitulated as I did last year and the years before that. I’d be dancing on a mailbox in Stormwind right now, is what I’m saying. Even MOP’s Justin Olivetti, who told me on this week’s podcast that he hasn’t played WoW hardcore since Wrath, said he was tempted to go back, even just for a moment.

How about you? Did BlizzCon make you want to resub to WoW? Did you preorder Legion and snag a freebie level 100, or are you more done than ever?

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!
