Inc 5000 questions on CRZThey won't be that specific.
Just slight variations on "Why did you kill the game?"
09/10/2012 06:21 PMPosted by HackurWe'll be choosing questions based on the information we can reasonably provide, and what kinds of answers we feel will be the most compelling and informative for the entire audience
in other words if any questions on the CRZ come up theyll most likely be brushed aside
09/10/2012 08:11 PMPosted by MirsI understand they've made a lot of changes, but this game is 8 years old and they've been working on this stuff for at LEAST the better part of a year, most likely a lot longer than that. There are no answers they can give for a lot of this stuff other than "We're sorry, we screwed up" and that would make them look stupid, so they're going to avoid those questions, legitimate questions, out of pride.
To hell with reddit and twitter and facebook!... all the devs should do a strictly Q&A thread here on the wow forums like once a month.
09/10/2012 08:43 PMPosted by HippeauxI’ll be on-hand to host the chat and will have Lead Systems Designer Greg Street, Lead Quest Designer Dave Kosak, Lead Encounter Designer Ion Hazzikostas, and Game Director Tom Chilton available to field your questions.
Is there a reason the art team never gets their own Q & As and never seems to be invited to the group Q & As?
Or am I just the only one who's dying to pick their brains the most?
Edit: bain, brain, whatever. : \
09/10/2012 08:51 PMPosted by PinsDo you intend to open up the thread an hour early to let people get the questions in, and let the up/downvotes take effect before going through and answering them?
This is how I know I'm a cynic. If the topics are based on user votes, who is to say that the fanboys aren't going to flood votes into questions about things other than this awful patch? And if they choose to give some 'dance around' answer to the topics people want to see, how long before a follow up question could be voted up to actually call them out on it? This thing is lasting, what, an hour? That time will fly by, and honestly I doubt much depth will be shown.
You want to make the community of players feel like you care? Instead of a stunt like this, write a lengthy, articulated response to their forum posts on the forums. Not a Blizzard on Blizzard Q&A blog either, those things are awful. The hardest questions you ask each other sound like, "So, is it hard being so awesome?"
09/10/2012 09:32 PMPosted by SchwarzkopfReddit's system for displaying posts based on reader votes makes it ideal for trying to answer the "most important" questions.
You were correct to put those two words in quotes, because the reddit system will prioritise the popular questions - not the most important, nor the most interesting.
Popularity gives us Big Brother or Dancing with the Stars.
I hope you don't get voted off the island :)
It'll be on http://www.reddit.com/r/wow for a very, very long time.
Ah sweet :) I don't use reddit so I wouldn't know haha.
09/11/2012 12:49 AMPosted by FibromyalgíaWe'll try to make sure we get a transcript posted on our site afterward as well. :)
You're burning the midnight oil, eh? Get some sleep before the AMA! Your ghostly skull looks a bit tired.
Well, no, I put it in quotes because what questions about this game are most important to a person is subjective. Your post is almost a direct reflection of that. The fact that you might disagree with a majority of readers about what is most important or most interesting is a startling indication of humans acting all human-like.
I'll concede one thing though. This AMA would be way better for you if you got to choose every question. If only a community worked that way, right? :p
But did it have to be Reddit? Isn't there another site out there with a similar upvote system that managed to progress out of the Windows 3.1 root-branch display system for posts? Or one that's at least easy to read all of the relevant content for a question without needing to expand everything into infinity just to get the full context of what is said?
