Final Fantasy begins to challenge World of Warcraft

For nearly two decades, Blizzard's World of Warcraft has always been the king of massively multiplayer online types, which makes Blizzard believe that they have a monopoly on World of Warcraft. But according to Activision Blizzard's financial data for the first quarter of 2021, in the past three years, 29% of Blizzard's total active players have been lost. A powerful opponent, Final Fantasy XIV, began to challenge them to compete for the huge multiplayer online championship.

According to reports, since Blizzard released its fourth-quarter 2020 results, 2 million players have withdrawn from Blizzard's game portfolio. All of this happened after Blizzardvision caused itself a series of large-scale public relations disasters. Since the merger with Activision, it seems to have been in a steady decline. From a mobile game that caused a huge Classic TBC Gold fan backlash at Blizzard Carnival to banning top Hearthstone player Blitzchung from supporting Hong Kong's democratic movement, all this has tarnished the company's previously flawless brilliance. In addition, reports of poor working conditions and large-scale layoffs have kept company morale at an all-time low.

However, it seems that what can hurt Blizzard the most is the bleak World of Warcraft expansions, which have been criticized by long-term players as "lazy" and "grabbing money." Recently, the expansion Shadowlands added to the game has led countless players astray. Not only in terms of lack of story, but Blizzard shifted its focus to cater more to casual players and mobile users and began to have a real negative impact on its core player base. However, nothing seems to have a greater impact than the jump of Asmongold, World of Warcraft's biggest streamer, from World of Warcraft to Final Fantasy XIV.

Asmongold has more than 2 million followers on Twitch and 689,000 subscribers on YouTube. When he started playing this 11-year-old Cheap TBC Classic Gold game from publisher Square Enix, he inspired a competitor MMO Of mass exodus. It is important to note that in the streaming world, gamers will quickly grab the next "hottest" trend to attract viewers to watch their streaming. With Asmongold "grabbing gold" in Final Fantasy XIV, this game has witnessed the influx of "World of Warcraft refugees".

With so much, Final Fantasy XIV has begun to break its record of concurrent players on Steam. However, its sudden popularity is not without problems. Many players find that the game server is always full, making it difficult to log in and play the game. Even the European servers of Final Fantasy are full of people, and the free trial of the game diverts players into a "never-ending queue." Therefore, World of Warcraft players should accumulate a large amount of TBC Classic Gold in advance to increase their advantage. If you urgently need a large amount of Classic TBC Gold, you can go to MMOWTS for help, and they will help you solve all problems.
