The “What If?” MachineApril 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.
