World of Warcraft, the reasons for lasting success
World of Warcraft (WoW) fans have always liked the fact that from the very beginning it imposed choices: at the first login you have to choose which side you are on, Alliance or Horde, try to set up your own guild or join an existing guild, find the role in which you express yourself best. The opposite, in short, of “your world, your imagination” conceived by Philip Rosedale for Second Life.
To last so long WoW has taken advantage of cleverly drawn cues from successful games like Dungeons and Dragon, Raid, Quest and PvP, managing to evolve continuously as with the Challenge for the dungeons in “Fogs of Pandaria” or “Mythic + Dungeons”, but also cultivating a certain nostalgic taste for the “good times”.
Blizzard Entertainmente celebrates 15 years of WoW
No wonder Blizzard Entertainment has now announced that to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the MMORPG from November 6th 2019 to January 8th 2020 (in Europe) it will be possible to play at a special event, “New Raids: Memories of Azeroth” with which you can go back in time and relive the raids of “The Burning Crusade”, “Wrath of the Lich King” and “Cataclysm”. “In each of these limited-time raids you will have to face three iconic bosses and they will be available in the Raid Finder wings” explains a note from Blizzard Entertainment. To enter the raid it will be necessary to have a minimum object level of 380: whoever manages to complete all three wings will receive the achievement “Memories of Fel, Frost and Fire” which will give him the Obsidian Worldbreaker, a Black Dragonflight mount inspired by Deathwing.
Special anniversary gift
Last but not least: all players who log in to World or Warcraft during the special event period will receive an “Anniversary gift” in the mail, which includes a Lil’ Nefarian battle pet, a Celebration Package that increases experience and reputation gains throughout the event, a reusable firework that can be used for the duration of the event, an item that teleports you to the “Caverns of Time” (usable only during the event), and other in-game goodies. If you are a fan of World of Warcraft or virtual worlds, what are you waiting for?
