MMO Week in Review: A feast for MMOs in Guild Wars 2, WoW Classic, and City of Heroes


Not at all for the first time, Guild Wars 2 and World of Warcraft announcements clashed rather hard this week, as ArenaNet released the final episode of its current living story season to great acclaim and Blizzard began the beta for WoW Classic, now due out in August.

The good news is that based on our experiences, we can say they’re both great. And if superheroes are more your thing? Well, we’re loving the return to City of Heroes too. Bon appétit, MMO players!

I would still love a version of WoW that has the old talent trees, lacks the LFR/LFG stuff, and better use of crafting skills but has new content and races. I think classic will do well enough to keep it around for the foreseeable future.

Working on the Synapse TF in CoX but the others were gone for the weekend so not much of that one this weekend so finished the 2 Doom expansions (TNT-Evilution and Plutonia Experiment), and started playing Hedon, I have a ton of shooters, both old and new to get through still.


if classic wow works as planned, it will be as huge as old school runescape and will become the more played version of the game where retail will become the minority.. seeing as how each expansion is worse in quality, i can see people completely losing interest in retail and moving to classic where its proven that everything works and its fun

there will always be the casual noobs that never played vanilla and feel threatened by it that will continue to say how bad it is and how retail wow is better by lying to themselves with mental gymnastics, but nobody will care about them soon enough… even they might give up on their pride and stubbornness and start playing classic
