ATVI Blizzard stock is plummeting

Giving us a Legion 0.5 and Diablo Immortal?

I want this game to stay afloat, but god damn. Listen to players. Heck, even WoD was better than this many ways.

Good riddance.
Oh, don't worry, they'll listen to their player base when the stocks jump up after their mobile game launches in china.
If the Realms are still open, that's all I GAF about - share prices are a rich-people problem.
Seems to be a common trend. EA, Ubi and 2K are not doing better.
[edit]And for 2K it's really strange since they just released Dead Red Redemption and it seems to be going really well.

they reap what they sow.

if this happened to a good company which wasn't obviously trying to push more and more money out of the customers to please the share holders..

i would show more sympathy... activision blizzard .. my last message directed to you on this matter most likely before my sub runs out ..

if you want happy share holders .. give the players what they want... and don't use us as a addicted cash cow .

Ehm, 2K got nothing to do with Red dead redemption 2.

That is made by Rockstar.

They are owned by 2K:

[edit]
To be more precise both 2K and Rockstar are wholly owned by Take Two

This has to be trolling.

If you think for a second BfA has less and is comparable to WoD, then you are simply delusional and just looking to attack the game at this point.

Leave and let those who enjoy it, enjoy it. I enjoy BfA, and a lot more do.

Huh, well .. my bad then.

Edit: Wait 2k is owned by take two also, so 2K don't own rockstar.
So 2K stock going down still makes sense, as RDR2 would not do anything for them.
The more greedy companies that goes down the better.

Played through the whole game (except for Mythic Uldir). WoD class design was miles better than this atrocious pruned expansion. It's my subjective opinion. Class design > extra raid tier.

And nope, not trolling. Not kidding.

Pretty much.

if class design is bad the game can have infinite content, it still wouldn't matter.

that's the reason why I hated legion too.

some people still don't get this.

That remains to be seen. The Chinese mobile market seems to be saturated. For instance NCSoft seems pretty stable, even after announcing 5 new mobile titles.
It's a big drop to be sure, biggest in 2 years, and to a one-year low no less, but it's in the same place it was in April/ May 2017 and it's still way above a level that would be worrying. It's rallied from similar lows before and given the volatility over the last few months (all the sharp peaks and troughs) it's not unfeasible that it'll rally again. Especially once Diablo Immortal arrives and its monetisation kicks in.

I'm not sure what we're supposed to be worrying/ gloating about here. Share prices are not a reflection of the satisfaction a particular playerbase feels in a particular IP, they're a reflection of how profitable a company is perceived to be over all.
The worlds financial markets are a mess, USA just had their midterms, UK is still pissing about with Brexit, various European countries are having their own issues, the middle east is as always a melting pot of issues.

It would be interesting to look back at past Blizcons and see how the share prices did back then or during WoD.
@All: According to CNN business news I have seen, companies like Apple and other tech stocks are going down hard, too. So the stock market is doing its' own thing and we should not read too much into individual stocks, when the general trend is downwards.

there is reasons behind all of it even if a lot of it seems like coincidence to speculation.. many people are giving up on smart phones right now there is a big movement happening this year to get rid of smart phones and buy normal phone which just make calls and text.. that is probably why Apple is down as they announce a sale loss in xmas sales this year.
The blizzard stock price was down back in October, this downslide did not just recently start. The issue is that while the company is making money they are not making the level of money that their investors want them to make. Hence their diversifying into mobile apps and trying to stem the blow. As we are entering the last quarter of the year, it is crunch time for many companies to have earnings growth before December 31 or they will start the new year off on a down turn.

well they should just announce d4 or wow 2(non mobile) .. and stop talking to the customers like dicks .. and maybe they will make a gain before the deadline...

i cant see it recovering if they don't announce anything soon.
Whatever the cause its deserved, BFA isnt good and for quite a while ive been feeling ripped off by blizzard, also im frustrated and angry that they seem to keep ruining good things by making changes nobody wants, and not fixing the things people want changed.

i was a huge Blizzard fanboi, now im taking a complete break from all things Blizzard, even if BFA was free to play i wouldnt play more.

They would have to do loads of massive uturns reverting a lot of the BFA changes to make this expansion good, a sticky plaster here and there wont fix it.
So BFA is a complete write off at this point for me, subs will keep on decreasing till Classic #Quittillclassic
