Don’t really care about getting your attention I guess. But this is an article about Twist so… yeah, I figured we were discussing Twist in general. Mercs was a failure, Classic had little to no player base after initial hype, and I’m guessing Duels is the same. So yes, when barely no one plays the mode I would expect it either get dropped or put into maintenance mode.
And if down the road Twist also loses a lot of it’s player base I wouldn’t doubt it also gets replaced. But my response to you and others, here and on other forums, have generally been due to the lack of knowledge people have had about how Twist always had planned breaks. So when you included Twist in the pattern you described, that’s a dramatic overreaction. As of yet, everything we’ve seen has been laid out by what they said in the initial announcement. So there has been no sign of a drop in support for Twist (yet).
But what could help kill the mode is people crying out that the sky is falling, resulting in other players moving away from the mode, reducing the player base, and Blizzard moving on due to lack of interests. So yeah, my post wasn’t about getting your attention. More so about making sure people understood the reality of what is going on.
