Community World of Warcraft Might Just Be the Glitchiest Game Ever
According to a report from Blizzard, the mega-popular MMO is littered with glitches galore.
According to wow.com (and also discussed to some length at the Game Developers Conference), Blizzard is reporting that World of Warcraft is plagued with almost 180,000 glitches that they're tracking. What that means in layman's terms is that there's almost 180,000 problems with the game that are either fixed, being fixed, or not yet in the process of being fixed. Unfortunately Blizzard didn't give a breakdown of where these glitches stand, but given the immense number of patches that have been released - and certainly the almost certain prospect that a ton more will be on the way - I'd say a good number of the glitches are in some stage of being fixed or being worked on. However, each new expansion pack is bound to breed a whole slew of new glitches in the process of fixing the old.
Is it surprising that World of Warcraft is plagued with that many bugs, or is it more surprising that Blizzard would come right out with such a staggering number?
