Blizzard Wants You Back in WoW, Buffs Up Scroll of Resurrection to Convince You

Blizzard has upped the ante in hopes of pulling back lost subscribers into World of WarCraft, offering a bunch of new features as part of the game’s Scroll of Resurrection.

The “scroll” is an invite players can send to friends who used to subscribe but have since moved on. Blizzard has added a ton of perks for players who choose to be “resurrected” — like free play time, for one.

The Scroll now lets players instantly kick a character up to level 80 and packs a week of free game time. Players can also migrate characters to whatever server and faction they wish when they’re resurrected, presumably so they can catch up with their friends and aren’t stuck on whatever server they left.

What do you guys think: is this a solid deal that makes sense, or is Blizzard desperate to raise its subscription numbers?

Good deal, but also a desperate move on their part.

I think its lame, all the way to the top? So basically your having them skip part of the game, like working to get to 80? Now if your at like 70 and do the jump, thats alright, but say your at like 10 and you get the bump up to 80, thats a little messed up. Good deal for those that want that, and a VERY desperate move to pull back the people who think the game is to hard.

Great…..even more people that dont know how to play their class properly…

…by circumventing the learning experience by leveling that character.

That said, I’ts still a pretty great Idea for those who have a high lvl character but just not at the max…

Very desperate move on Blizzard’s part, just hurry up with Diablo 3 and focus on fixing the game up and having a final release. Blizzard you should be ashamed of your selves if anything you will lose a lot of subs because of such trickery!
