Not to burst down your bubble there kiddo, but correlation does not imply causation, so unless you have a direct proof that the switch from a more grounded and amoral setting of Warcraft I/II to a more idealistic and heroic setting of Warcraft III was behind the increase of sales, this is nothing but a wild conjecture. Or are you trying to tell me that Diablo III's thrice as large sales compared to Diablo II happened due to the change of the atmosphere and thematics, even though this change has been until this day one of the largest points of criticism?
