Battle for Azeroth Sales Wow WoW

Blizzard announces Battle for Azeroth is the fastest-selling World of Warcraft expansion ever, showing their MMORPG still wields some clout in the marketplace. After all these years, they say the game's expansion set a new one-day sales record by moving 3.4 million units:

When the Battle for Azeroth™ erupted worldwide last week, champions of the Alliance and the Horde around the globe were called upon to fight for their faction. Heroes everywhere turned out in force, and Blizzard Entertainment today announced that as of Battle for Azeroth’s first full day of launch on August 14, more than 3.4 million units of the latest World of Warcraft® expansion had sold through worldwide—setting a new day-one sales record for the franchise and making it one of the fastest-selling PC games of all-time.*

“Battle for Azeroth is a definitive chapter in the Horde and Alliance conflict at the heart of Warcraft, and it’s been thrilling to see players representing their factions in record numbers and embarking on their war campaigns—not to mention joining in ourselves,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “But the launch is just the beginning of this conflict. More epic content is coming to World of Warcraft in the weeks ahead, and we can’t wait for players to experience the full story as it unfolds over the course of the expansion.”

This is probably on me for expecting good writing from a MMORPG, but the tonal shift in this expansion is probably the most jarring thing for me while trying to play it. You go from high level sci-fi/fantasy with visiting alien planets and dealing with gods responsible for the creation of the universe... too being killed by lizards that lick REALLY HARD while you are helping some farmhand harvest their organs. I mean, really? I just slayed a god and survived a blow from his ethereal scythe larger than my body... Ugh.

That isn't even touching on Sylvanas' transformation into Zombie Hitler and how shallow and forced that feels.

I know you can only escalate things so far, but how about downshifting a few gears first before kicking heroes of the universe back into picking onions for the local town drunks hangover cocktail and vapid faction war themes?

The only good thing, lore-wise, to come out of this has been the cinematic they did for Jaina where she was apologizing to her father's ghost for siding with the Horde against him. That was fantastic so I know they have it in them.
