The development of World of Warcraft is an ongoing process

Posted By Helodie Jaqucline     Jan 21    


Recently, Blizzard COO Paul Sams talked about their views on World of Warcraft at the player meeting. World of Warcraft is the most successful MMORPG project launched by Blizzard, with millions of loyal users worldwide. The game was first released in 2004, and has undergone multiple updates and multiple expansions, with interesting gameplay and rich content. It's hard to imagine that a studio developing MMORPG for the first time could create such a great product, maybe we can find some clues from Sams's conversation.

Sams said that World of Warcraft is very different from the products they developed before. The key is to Buy WOW Classic Gold provide players with lasting service. Most of the time, they applied the previous method of developing other games to World of Warcraft because they lacked MMORPG development experience. But in a sense, this may be an advantage. Prior to World of Warcraft, most MMORPGs focused on stimulating player interest through the community rather than adding more creativity to the game. Fortunately, Blizzard has a lot of experience in developing multiplayer games, and in developing World of Warcraft they saw it as a multiplayer game similar to other games.

"Obviously it was a client-server game, and we hadn't done one of those before, so there were some differences on the general philosophy side, but as far as game development philosophy I think we approached it in the same way as previous games. "

Artistic visual effects and background stories quickly attracted a large number of players interested in the fantasy world, but for the real hardcore players, the diverse class and high balance of World of Warcraft make it irreplaceable product. Whenever I need to use WOW Classic Gold in the game, I always think of ZZWOW, where I can buy cheap and secure WOW Classic Gold. If you need it, you can visit ZZWOW's official website.

Obviously, the origin of this design philosophy is their application in the StarCraft series. They had so much experience with doing multiplayer balance and game mechanics, that really gave them a leg-up when they started doing WoW. They really knew how important that was.

"There were a few studios out there that made the World of Warcraft Classic Gold multiplayer last, at the end of the project, and they really don't have the time to developout gameplay mechanics or do all the tuning that's necessary for a game to last 500-plus hours.

"Just our general philosophy to how we approach multiplayer really helped us in developing WoW - certainly the approach we took to game balance, tuning the game in general and pacing were all things that carried over to World of Warcraft."
