As everyone probably is aware, there is a new WOW expansion being released soon. No matter what kind of gaming operation you’re running, you have WOW players. The accessibility, reach, and adoption of that game is just insane. So what do we do?
One option is to launch a Strats guild in WOW and provide a home for players that enjoy the game but want to keep a close proximity to our culture and activities here. The other option is to continue to give WOW the cold shoulder.
My personal opinion is that if we have a strong leader that wants to run it, there’s no reason we shouldn’t support it as a community. However, it’s a very mature game with huge guilds and raiders. It’s difficult to break into that market in terms of recruiting and I’m not sure we have the numbers here right now to support it. We would need that strong leader (mentioned above) to have a significant role in creating content for WOW members in the form of raids, events, and recruitment.
So here’s the poll:
- Yes, I would join a Strats WOW Guild.
- Yes, I don’t play but I think it’s a good idea.
- No, the guild I’m already in is too cool (aka I like raiding with 14 year olds yelling at me).
- No, I’ve been WOW sober for years and I will never chase that dragon again, Strats shouldn’t support it.
