Player XP “Stray” Game Report
Stray is a third-person puzzle-solving adventure game set in a decaying cybercity, where you play as a cat and solve the mysteries of this city that droids and other strange creatures have inhabited. Stray is developed by BlueTwelve Studio and published by Annapurna Interactive.
Since its release on July 19th 2022, Stray has built a larger than expected playerbase and received a flurry of overwhelmingly positive reactions. However, as every game does, a few things have caused negative feedback from players and have therefore impacted the game’s overall sentiment. This Player XP report will analyse comments and feedback from the Stray community to identify the topics that are driving positive and negative discussion around the game.

How Blizzard Disappointed The Diablo Playerbase With Immortal
The Diablo franchise has gained a large and loyal playerbase since the release of the first Diablo game over two decades ago in 1996. The latest game in the franchise, Diablo 4 was announced back in 2019 and has had its release date postponed until 2023. Blizzard has since released the free-to-play (F2P) action-RPG mobile game ‘Diablo Immortal’.
The game is mobile-focused but is also in Early Access on PC already due to the game’s high-quality production. Despite the hype from the community for another successful Diablo game, this one largely disappointed a majority of the playerbase with the main issue being in-game microtransactions. This blog will analyse everything that went wrong with Diablo Immortal and why it has received such negative reactions from its community.

What is Behind COD Warzone’s Negative Sentiment?
Using Player XP, we could identify that Activision’s Call of Duty: Warzone currently has an all-time sentiment of -18. On the Player XP dashboard, we have gathered over 2.3 million interactions from various data sources that we monitor for the game.
It is interesting to see that a game with such a large playerbase has a very negative sentiment, so we are bringing you this blog to give you insights into what is causing this negative sentiment and the pain points that Activision’s community are experiencing. We will also show you how you can use the feature-rich Player XP dashboard to get insights into any game.
World Of Warcraft: Dragonflight Expansion
Blizzard has brought excitement to the World of Warcraft (WoW) playerbase with the announcement of the newest expansion – Dragonflight. This is the latest expansion to WoW since Shadowlands in 2020 which disappointed and drove many players away from the game despite its pre-release hype. This time, Blizzard’s announcement sounded more promising for the future of the game.
The Dragonflight expansion is expected to be released sometime in Q1 of 2023 and takes place in a new area called the Dragon Isles – this area includes four new zones. There are plans for major revamps to core features such as the UI, HUD, and Talent System. Players have grown heavily frustrated with the current game so are relieved to see that Blizzard is listening to the playerbase and working to improve the game.
