It’s too sad that World of Warcraft came to this point, where Blizzard doesn’t care about any new players anymore. The toxicity in the game is already at too damn high levels, and Blizzard simply punishes new comers even more.
I’ve been playing WoW since Cataclysm release, and I used to love this game, then quit for a while, came back on BfA with my wife, just to discover how bad this game became, and Blizzard’s customer service… Even worse.
I came back playing about a week ago, and thing I used to like most in game, was dungeons and raiding. So, I purchased two BfA codes, one for me, and one for my wife, since we like to play together.
So, my wife and me, we have just a few hours of free time for playing, and we don’t care about doing hardcore content, we usually used to mostly do dungeon finder and raid finder content.
But now, for my surprise, Blizzard decided to ‘punish’ new players, with these 30minutes debuff if you are KICKED from a dungeon PUG.
So, in basically a week, since I came back to the game, I’ve been kicked TWICE, just because I said on the chat “Hi, I’m new to this dungeon”. And I got kicked out from the group, without even engaging a single mob, which gave me a 30min debuff where I couldn’t join another group.
So, from my 2 hours window I had to play during the night, I spent 1/4 of it blocked from playing what I liked to do, for simply no reason.
So, you try to be polite to the group, and say you are new, and you get kicked… Ok, happens, people are people…
Then comes Blizzard and punishes you for this…
So, well, being a customer from Blizzard since Warcraft 1 and Diablo 1 (times when I used to carry my D1 chars in floppy disks)… Time to say farewell, Blizzard isn’t what it used to be anymore, and World of Warcraft, became one of the most toxic online games around, where new players are not welcome to the game anymore, and unless they get lucky in get in a great group from the beginning, they are screwed up.
So, this is just a wreaking from my recent discussions with Blizzard customer service and Game Masters…
And somehow hopefully any person considering to start the game in 2019, consider it twice before giving Blizzard any money just to join a toxic community that WoW became.
