"if they can work it out in a form they find acceptable, it would undoubtedly be popular."Undoubtedly? A successful mobile MMO will look nothing like a successful PC MMO, and simply streaming the same experience over will be a flop.If Blizzard is going to be as careful as they need to be, my guess is this thing won't leave the drawing boards.

Sorry, but this sounds like oh-so-many negative comments that we've seen time and time again. My guess is that you'll be singing the tune "I knew they could do it all along" when Blizzard releases a mobile WoW application that everyone loves.Honestly, this is arguably the smartest game company on the planet right now. They have never, ever, been known to release sub-par games or services. We've all come to expect the very best from Blizzard and they come through each and every time. Why would a mobile application be any different?I'm sure Blizzard encountered this same sort of preemptive criticism when they first announced they'd try an MMO. They get this same kind of criticism at almost every game launch or expansion. Go ahead... bet on failure. I'll take those odds. Only an idiot would bet against the fastest, strongest horse in the race.
