This year, we’re taking a time-machine back through our MMO coverage, month by month, to hit the highlights and frame our journey before we head into 2016.

BlizzCon dominated November 2015 with details on World of Warcraft’s Legion expansion and its beta that apparently was not going to start “within weeks” of the con after all. The game’s sub dip was barely noticed amid news that Actiblizz had bought up Candy Crush dev King and opened a TV and movie studio.

Meanwhile, Funcom was granted a financial reprieve (and put it to good use), CCP raised money for VR, Guild Wars 2 got raids, and Bless and The Repopulation suffered delays. Read on for the rest of November’s top MMO news and editorials.

the mainstay of wow which none seem to address ever is how all the classes play they all have solid gameplay and unique play styles this was more true in vanilla and during certain patches and expansion but I have never played anything like a druid, quite like a hunter, DK, or paladin the way blizzard made them and balance has always been at the forefront of content in the game then new areas graphics, quest etc. though contriversial at times blizzard alway tried to set it right.   this is the reason people still play WOW more than any other.

Well WoW is losing another 10 or so subs soon. Me, my wife and all our friends that play are all letting our subs run out. We are so bored that we don’t even log in more than once every few days and the group we used to raid with imploded due to boredom and lack of interest. Adding a new grind (actually an old one just resurrected) to the game hoping it would keep people busy for almost an entire year of content drought was foolish of Blizzard’s part. I won’t be shocked it subs dip below 3 million before Legion.

In before this comment section gets multiple “Technically the Alpha was the beta they were talking about so they didn’t go back on what they said at blizzcon.”  posts.  Also while I don’t play Funcom games I am glad they got a bit of a reprieve by their creditors to try and turn things around financially.  Also hearing Activision is opening a tv/movie studio made me happy since that might mean we could get an Overwatch TV show for plot since the game is pretty lacking in any narrative inside the game.
