More WoW, Major 2007 Announcement for Blizzard 121

Blizzard has announced their intention to follow up this year's Burning Crusade expansion with a new World of Warcraft add-on every year. While not terribly surprising, they have also announced that they're working on a major announcement for next year. Consensus seems to be that it will likely be another Starcraft game, given comments by Blizzard COO Paul Sams. "StarCraft is my absolutely favorite game of all time. As you probably already know, there is no doubt that we will continue the StarCraft and Diablo franchise, and trust me, I will be the happiest person in the world when we announce StarCraft 2."

    Pleeeeease let it be starcraft 2, and have it be more fun than warcraft 3. I need more starcraft chips [] and it seems they have stopped selling them at my local korean importers. There is the small matter of the game being as addictive as all hell too.

    They also promised that they'd release a patch every month for the at least the first year when the game came out, and we've seen how they've hit that goal. They also announced that WOW was a game intended to make casual players happy, before adding in that "grade-on-a-curve" honor system that casual players can't possibly excel at. Not that I have anything against Blizzard, but considering what's happened in the past, I would wait to get excited until it actually does happen. In fact... that applies to pretty much all of these press releases.

    I think the Slashdot community was/is wrong with bnetd. Bnetd allowed circumvention of Blizzard's copy protection and thats about all it did. I played on it when I couldn't get into betas of various Blizzard games, but I eventually bought the legit game in the store. If Bnetd was not shutdown, it could have spawned to support millions of players. That is to say, millions of people playing without first paying for a copy of the game.

The other line moves faster.
