The future of Warrock
Dear players, friends,
I've made a similar topic on the forums of previous publishers, raising my concerns about the future of Warrock. It's a unique game, but has been losing popularity over the years. I strongly believe graphics are not a reason for this. Counterstrike has worse graphics compared to Warrock, but yet had over 24 million active players last year. (Source: Statista) The reason i'm addressing this at first, is many people blame it on the graphics being outdated. Games are getting more beautiful by the year, and Warrock hasn't changed alot since it's release. However, same goes for Counterstrike. This means there is hope, but there must be an investment to make.
In one of the previous publisher's engineers team, there was this person who also tried to do his best for Warrock. I forgot his name unfortunately, but he actively communicated with the players on the forum about improvements that were needed for a better game, and made a list. With this list he travelled to South-Korea to pay a visit at the Dream Execution office, the game's developer. He kept the players posted about his journey, but sadly there wasn't alot of action from the developer's team. It is understandable that, as a game developer, you kind of get layed back after 15 years and lose some of the amibition you had when the game was being created. To my opinion, they should sell it to a fresh team of developers who are willing to blow some new life in to it.
What do you think about the future of Warrock? What improvements are to be made to return the amount of daily players the game once had? To my opinion, they should return the simplicity of the item shop and inventory. It used to be clear. Now for example the croisshairs took me a while to figure out. I remember as a new player looking in the item shop and seeing the M60 with a level 16 requirement. That was my first goal: reach level 16 and buy the M60 and own everyone in the game! It took quite a while too to reach that level! Let me know what you think, what can we do to make Warrock popular again? 🤠
