I guess I'm not totally surprised, given the difficulty that even pretty big name MMO have been having lately....it feels like the market for this format has not grown in the way that they had perhaps expected (certainly the market willing to pay much for a game over the long term)

The thing is, they haven't introduced a fundamentally new IP (world) since.....when did they buy Diablo? Warcraft i, 2, 3, WoW, Hearthstone, a big chunk of their new Brawler all based off the Warcraft IP. SC 1 and 2 and part of the brawler.

It's things like this that make me glad I'm not the boss. I had the chance to take the Area Manager job but I didn't want to deal with this kind of thing. I would have told the guy, to his face, that we were not in a position to help immediately, which is the truth.

We have a major project starting tomorrow. I have to be in the city by 8 a.m. to inspect the Greyhound bus terminal. I won't be back home until maybe 6. If I am forced to miss SoO, i'm gonna be irritated. I had no say in how long I'm to be out there

and I told Mike I cannot be on my feet all day. "I will call in 'sick' because I won't be able to move if I am not allowed to rest." He's so focused, sometimes, on the bottom line, he forgets limits.

From Insider. It is so worth it to watch the whole thing. I've included the link so you can read the interview.

Tipster unearths treasure chest of classic WoW raiding memories

by Lisa Poisso Feb 23rd 2012 at 1:00PM

Do you ever wonder what you missed by not playing WoW back in the early days? You've seen the classic instances, of course, as you've swatted aside their bosses during mining expeditions for transmogrification gear -- but what were these viragoes like back in the day when conquering them took 40 players at the top of their game hurling themselves against the storm, before modern levels, gear, abilities and game mechanics reduced them to mere echoes of their former fury? Screech "rose-colored glasses!" all you like -- WoW classic and The Burning Crusade were far and away the eras that pinned me most devotedly to my keyboard, smitten by the game. (Others think very differently, as demonstrated below.)

You can't really relive the classic experience today; there's simply been too much water under the bridge. Still, I'd love to be able to give newer players a taste of those old raid instances in a way they just can't get from muscling through the instances today. But if playing through won't do the job, neither will videos from the past. Boss kill and strat videos cast an analytical eye on the proceedings, remaining aloof from the atmosphere and focusing more on the spray of combat text and special effects. On the other end of the spectrum are roleplaying epics that, while entertaining, represent the particular personality and experience of a specific group of players.

If you've got time to burn, though, you might enjoy sinking into these vanilla-era flavor films by Order of Watchers on Ragnaros (EU). WoW Insider reader Karol discovered these old-school gems ("Maybe it just found me in a nostalgic mood, but I think both of them are masterpieces from the old times and worth a mention" -- we agree, Karol, so thanks!), tipping us off to this abstract of one Hungarian guild's march through classic encounters and The Burning Crusade. Somewhere between a guided tour, a roleplaying narrative and guild memory book, these videos attempt to preserve a glimpse of the wonder the guild felt on the path through the earliest endgame content in World of Warcraft.

I've had this song stuck in my head for some reason so I thought I'd share a video that shows why it was attached to Heigen the Unclean from Naxx.
