The “What If?” Machine

April 23, 2008

…What if WAR hadn’t been delayed, but would’ve been released in early June to go head-to-head against Age of Conan?

…What if WAR is delayed into 2009, despite reassurances from Mythic that it doesn’t look like that would ever happen?

…What if Order becomes the “underdog” faction instead of Destruction, a la Horde in World of Warcraft?

…What if Age of Conan gets fair-to-middling reviews, and ansy gamers twiddle their thumbs all summer waiting for the next big thing?

…What if Blizzard is holding back a huge surprise — or two! — from their list of Wrath of the Lich King features?

…What if WAR’s 24 classes contain massive imbalances on launch day?

…What if Joystiq creates a WAR Insider?

…What if Mythic includes those cool Paul Barnett sunglasses in the CE?

…What if I’d never stop wearing them?

…What if WAR launches, it’s a good game, but it never gets more than 200,000 long-term subscribers?

…What if none of my guildies from WoW come over to WAR, and I have to find a new guild all over again?

…What if Keen changes his blog banner-o-the-week to Hello Kitty Online? Because, seriously, that would be sweet.

  6. …What if WAR hadn’t been delayed, but would’ve been released in early June to go head-to-head against Age of Conan?
    WOULD BE INTERESTING, MIGHT BUY BOTH, BUT WAR WOULD BE PRIORITY. ALTHOUGH AS IT IS, I’M GETTING AOC CE.

    …What if WAR is delayed into 2009, despite reassurances from Mythic that it doesn’t look like that would ever happen?
    NOOOOOOOOOOOO….

    …What if Order becomes the “underdog” faction instead of Destruction, a la Horde in World of Warcraft?
    WHAT DO YOU MEAN “WHAT IF?” DESTRUCTION WILL OUTNUMBER ORDER 10:1

    …What if Age of Conan gets fair-to-middling reviews, and ansy gamers twiddle their thumbs all summer waiting for the next big thing?
    WHAT DO YOU MEAN “WHAT IF”? I DON’T HAVE HIGH HOPES FOR AOC, BUT HEY, YOU NEVER KNOW.

    …What if Blizzard is holding back a huge surprise — or two! — from their list of Wrath of the Lich King features?
    LIKE FLYING MOUNTS IN OLD WORLD? LIKE FOUR OTHER NEW CLASSES? LIKE HEROIC OLD WORLD DUNGEONS? DOUBTFUL, BLIZZARD IS TOO LAZY TO DO THOSE THINGS. JUST ADD JUST ENOUGH TO RAKE IN MORE MONEY.

    …What if WAR’s 24 classes contain massive imbalances on launch day?
    24 IS UNLIKELY, BUT I SUSPECT AT LEAST A HALF DOZEN BEING SERIOUSLY OVERPOWERED.

    …What if Joystiq creates a WAR Insider?
    I HOPE SO!

    …What if Mythic includes those cool Paul Barnett sunglasses in the CE?
    I HOPE SO!

    …What if I’d never stop wearing them?
    FREAK!

    …What if WAR launches, it’s a good game, but it never gets more than 200,000 long-term subscribers?
    IT WILL PROBABLY HAVE AT LEAST A MILLION REGULARS BY THE END OF THE YEAR, IF NOT DOUBLE THAT.

    …What if none of my guildies from WoW come over to WAR, and I have to find a new guild all over again?
    THAT’S THE BOAT I MIGHT BE IN. SUCKS. I HOPE I CAN GET SOME OVER.

    …What if Keen changes his blog banner-o-the-week to Hello Kitty Online? Because, seriously, that would be sweet.
    FREAK!
