Following last week’s nasty Blizzard Hong Kong mess, many players publicly stepped away from the studio and its games, in some cases deleting accounts entirely. This meant a lot of unscheduled ends to World of Warcraft runs, leaving a fresh pool of MMO refugees floating about looking for another game to fill that void.
Of course, it doesn’t take a controversy to send players on a journey from WoW to other MMOs; this sort of move happens all of the time, and when it does, one of the most commonly asked questions is what MMO would be the best substitute for Azeroth.
What say you? Where should you — or others — go to get a substitute World of Warcraft fix? Is it the PvE shores of Final Fantasy XIV? The insanely flexible Elder Scrolls Online? The relaunched ArcheAge? Or another MMO entirely?
