World of Warcraft Patch on PTR; To Include MOBA?

The World of Warcraft Website announces the promised version 5.2 patch for World of Warcraft is now live on the Public Test Realm for the MMORPG. They offer a series of notes on the new version, though they warn that these are not final. Here's an overview: "By logging in you can help us test a massive new raid dungeon, a multi-faceted new quest hub, Pet Battle improvements, new world bosses, significant class balance changes, brand new pets and mounts, assorted bug fixes, and more." On a related note, VG247 notes a post on WoW Serbia pointing to a trailer showing "Defense of the Alehouse" to feature some sort of MOBA gameplay, which they suggest will also be part of this version 5.2 patch, though this is just speculation at this point.

Sadly they ruined this game a long time ago and then monthly fee they are asking is way to much for what it is worth.

First, 2921 days is more than a decade.

:-facepalm-: Your Math-Fu is not so strong...

EDIT: I should have read all the comments before replying. Sigh.

I guess people are excited to pay $15 a month to play MOBA when you can do so for free almost everywhere else?

I havent been a wow player for close to a decade (2921 days sober), but i think a MOBA style pvp would be pretty cool.

Err... 2921 / 365 = ~8 years (even factoring in leap years)

I am not sure MOBA Battlegrounds would be a reason to come back to WoW. There are plenty of Dota/Moba style games out there that don't require the same amount of time sink and sub.

It might however be cool for the people that currently enjoy the game. Blizzard over all has habit of doing things like this before like having a chess game, plants vs zombies, and other little mini-games.

I am not exactly sure how they could handle the Moba progression if they allow max level characters and epic pve/pvp items. They would have to make the gear and characters you use separate from the main game. If not you might as well get rid of the death penalty and feeding.

First, 2921 days is more than a decade. Second, WoW wasn't around 11+ years ago. Then again, you probably didn't mean it literally..

Anyway, I'm with nin, I miss Wintergrasp. Wouldn't go so far as to say it's the only thing I miss, but definitely at the top of the list. Sober 14-15 months now.
 
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

Which is precisely why they are doing it.

I was excited for a moment about a collaboration between World of Warcraft and the Museum Of Bad Art, but then I watched the trailer.

Maybe next time.
