World of Warcraft: 9.0 score plummeted, the version ranked third from the bottom, Blizzard doesn’t understand player needs?
Each version of World of Warcraft has a score, and the current comprehensive score of World of Warcraft 9.0 version is only 83 (out of 100), and the user score is as low as 5.6 (out of 10).
The score of 5.6 does not seem to be low, but it ranks third among all expansions in World of Warcraft. In contrast, the first-ranked "The Burning Crusade" expansion has a comprehensive score of 91 points, and the user score is even higher. 8.1 points, showing how big the gap between the two is.
At present, there are only two versions with lower ratings than version 9.0, one is the second-to-last version 5.0 "Mists Of Pandaria", and the other is the bottom-ranked version 8.0 "Battle for Azeroth". The user ratings are 5.1. Points and 3.1 points.
It is worth mentioning that the version of "Warlords of Draenor", which has not been highly rated by players, is also ranked ahead of version 9.0, not only has a comprehensive score of 87 points, but even user ratings have reached 5.9 points.
The designer is too concerned about the player's online time
In fact, the reason why the 9.0 version is higher and lower is that the designer is too concerned about the player's online time. And this concern only has two aspects: one is PVE difficulty, and the other is equipment acquisition.
Compared with the previous version, the difficulty of version 9.0 can be said to be one of the best, and the more difficult content in the previous versions of World of Warcraft has low ratings.
For World of Warcraft players, the difficulty is actually not the most important thing. The most important thing is that while the difficulty increases, the income is reduced.
The difficulty of the gameplay is not terrible, and the profit is not terrible. The terrible thing is that the difficulty is high and the profit is very low. In this case, it is only natural that version 9.0 has become the third-to-last expansion in player ratings in just a few weeks.
