Possibly the most exciting aspect of World Warcraft’s next expansion is currently overshadowed by Pandaren Monks. War is coming back to Azeroth, and in this week’s WoW Factor, we wonder how it will affect the game and whether it will be enough to draw in those who gave up on WoW long ago.
World of Warcraft may be getting old. But that doesnâ€™t stop it from carrying the most relevance and weight in the industry, even well into its 7th year dominating the scene. It carries not only the most subscriptions, but is easily the highest selling western MMORPG of all time, and remains the most widely known game outside of our small sect of the videogame culture and fandom. So why then, as if I didnâ€™t just state the answer, do we continue to knock it and act as though everything it has accomplished is terrible for the industry and the genre? I just canâ€™t seem to wrap my head around this notion.
