Concern about Legion stealing players

61 posts in this topic

Posted

I think BDO came out at a great time when there really wasnt anything else promising coming out on the MMO market...but that said WoW is having another xpac it looks like late summer.  I'm a little worried that we are going to end up seeing a drop in players when that happens, really hope I am wrong about this :(

No one is going back to WoW.

WoW players that ended up in BDO and didn't quit after 30 minutes are not going back.

I don't think it's going to be a problem. If they drop the game because of WoW, then it's their loss, really.

I wouldn't be all to sure about that, there are quite a few MMO players these days that just hop games between WoW expansions.

Personally, I doubt the majority of players that are here right now will still be playing BDO by he time Legion rolls around, though... not because of Legion, mind you, but because they get bored an leave on their own... this game is very niche.

As a former WoW player myself, I can say that this could easily happen to some players since they "just want to try the new xpac" then gets stuck in it and quit BDO, however I don't think this will happen enough that we will notice any huge player drop, I wouldn't worry if I were you. :)

so they leave then what ? finish the expension in a month because the game turned so damn casual then comes back to Black Desert . yay huge loss , not.

Well I play mostly PvP, and since Legion is changing a lot of things apparently, the PvP and Honor system as well, got atleast me pretty intressted, but I have losen all hope for WoW so I'm pretty sure I won't go back at all. But I get your point.

It lost it's charm after Wotlk. Only reason to play WoW now is within private vanilla servers.

The game will lose players at different intervals. BDO launched at a great time, there are no AAA MMOs on the horizon however there are the typically MMO hoppers who will play for a month or 2 then return to their old game or something else once the newness wears off.  .

Legion will pull people in that have played with a group of friends for a long time to join up again and have fun as each xpac for WoW typically does. Some will return, some wont. Hopefully there will continue to be new players trickling in through out this time. There is no use worrying about it

Of course we'll lose players who dont like x,y,z as well if we embrace every player and encourage them to take part in all the game has to offer, no matter the type of player hopefully they will stay or return. Any player leaving long term is not good for the game.

If we develop a solid community with helpful people, guilds and build the bonds that people love in MMOs, they will always come back to hang with friends they've made in the game. Help someone today or be empathetic to their concerns and it could bring in a player tomorrow.

I just quit wow recently to come to BDO, I may try legion but I don't see myself sticking around on it. Blizzard have lost the WoW magic tbh, shit is a circus. Demon hunter will be imbalanced as ----- and break pvp again for 2 years.

No point, i'm done with their shit, Never changes.

On a serious note, if somes ppl are going back to WoW, who care ? But i pretty sure it would never hurt that game tho.

There most certainly will be a drop for a few weeks. But WoW expansions never last that long as the content just isnt there to keep the majority of players around for longer. Happens every expansion. People leave and join back for the new expansion, the warcraft universe is awesome after all.

Those aren't MMO players. 

As I said, if they didn't quick Black Desert in 30 minutes, they aren't going back to WoW.

Since the release of WoW, they are... that's the impact the game had on the market. Without those ~10 mil players hopping between WOW and other MMO's regularly, the market - heck, the concept - would have been dead and buried years ago.
