11/11/2022 at 5:30 p.m. by Philipp Sattler – Blizzard is celebrating the launch of WoW: Dragonflight with a series of twitch drops that are causing controversy in the community. The developer doesn’t give a damn and even gives the campaign its own trailer.
Many players are looking forward to the release of WoW: Dragonflight. Finally there is new content in WoW and many unloved features such as packages or legendary farms are a thing of the past. The folks at Blizzard themselves are celebrating the release by giving players some special collectibles via Twitch Drops.
This circumstance causes mixed feelings in the community. Some are excited to get hold of previously very rare mounts like Fel Dragon. Others find that it devalues these mounts. And still others find the way of doing it via Twitch Drops rather inappropriate. But be it how it is. Blizzard is sticking with it and even created and released their own trailer to celebrate the Twitch drops.

“Twitch Drops: Earn Rewards and Supporting Creators”
Under this title, those responsible at Blizzard celebrate the new campaign. The reactions to this have also been mixed. While there aren’t many comments under the video yet (perhaps also because Blizzard decided to make the video Unlisted so it’s not easy to find), there are also mixed reactions.
Some are excited and wish that all TCG items are made available. Others feel sorry for those who paid a lot of money for the items. And others poke fun at the fact that a company that only recently revealed how much money it makes wants to reward its fans with ancient items.
How do you feel about the whole thing? Do you celebrate Blizzard’s action or are you rather skeptical about the measures? And if so, what exactly bothers you about it? That they are twitch drops, that they are ancient items or that they are devalued with it? Tell us your opinion in the comments.
