Blizzard's desperate attempt!


If you still do play World of Warcraft for whatever reason, you should have already heard of this news. Blizzard is offering players with incentives to bring their old WoW friends back, if a player successfully brings a player back and gets him to get more WoW game time, they are both rewarded with the following benefits:
  • Sender
    •  Spectral Gryphon for Alliance characters
    • Spectral Wind Rider for Horde characters
  • Receiver
    • A level 80 character
    • Free upgrade to Cataclysm
    • Free character move
    • 7 free days of game time
This really is Blizzard's cry of desperation. Is World of Warcraft finally dying? Or are they just trying to get people hyped for their new "Myst of Pandaria" expansion? Either way, it's probably due to the declining subscribers and they've finally decided to do something about it. If you've been wanting to get back to WoW, now is probably the right time!

  1. I wrote a preview on what to expect of Mists of Pandaria just yesterday. So yeah I still enjoy playing WoW, and I'm not too bothered about what Blizzard does to attract customers :)

  2. This isn't terribly new. I remember them doing the same sort of thing when Burning Crusade came out.

  4. They recently gave me free game time, and sent me an email where a cute critter asked me to come back. It's almost a shame I don't think anyone can sign me up for this scheme so they can get a mount, though I already have a level 85 and a copy of Cataclysm. If it was free Pandaria I'd consider it.

    1. Yes! Guild Wars 2 is going to stomp WoW flat.

  8. It is really pathetic. They should just go F2P if they want to survive.

    1. I respectfully 100% disagree with you. The end is coming to MMORPH era? Seriously?

      It's my belief that with the advancements of virtual life gaming technology in the future, MMORPG's could be the thing that seize people's lives and become an addiction. If you could literally fly, cast magic, etc. in what felt like real life, would you suddenly want to stop?

      It's just beginning my friend

  11. I haven't played WoW for now about 5 years. No reason for me to go back, even for this stuff. I think it's really dying.
