Amongst all the chaos of the past several weeks, blue posts seem to be markedly absent. In the past i remember them being far more active and communicative with the forums, even in heated situations (see: the realid debacle of 2010). They were an important source of communication and a way to make players feel they were being heard, at least to some extent.

That seems to have all but gone the way of the dodo. Now it seems they drop a prepared statement in a sticky post, never to be seen again with no further comment, if that. Am I imagining things?

This is absolutely the case.

I don't think it is.

FYI Ythisens, while I momentarily maybe have your attention.

A new forums/site bug started happening last night.

https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20769006749


This happened to me yesterday at home, figured it was just my browser. Thanks for the note.

How are you enjoying the warfront ythsiens?

I suppose you are a horde and thus actually able to play it?

Yep I'm currently Horde at the moment, to be honest I thought the Warfront was pretty fun. It was very different but still really cool. I did it on all three of my characters and only had good luck on my alt which rolled a 370 weapon from the weekly. Which means my alt has a better weapon than my main at the moment FeelsBadMan.

Eager to do it on Alliance next to see the difference.

We all know you don't play Alliance man.

I know this doesn't support the "Horde bias" narrative GD has, but I'm literally the only person on my team that plays Horde currently. I have to maintain an Alliance character to play with them :P

But they said they like it

I said I liked it, not we. I'm not speaking for the whole team in this regard. I can almost guarantee there are folks internally that don't like it because its just another facet of the game, not everyone likes everything and that's an okay thing. I'm speaking in a generality here and not about Warfronts specifically. There are a few people internally that only like pet battles and fishing, I find them very tedious personally and thus don't like them, its okay that I don't like them.

The way this is phrased... it sounds like you find the people that only like pet battles and fishing to be tedious.

I chuckled.

I also didn't notice this when I reread it. I feel like I shouldn't edit it because it also made me laugh when someone pointed it out.

Not be mean. But are you a sadist? cause I would never post here if I was gm. No one likes to be polite anymore. Heck I don't even like the current game. but if get any response form you guys would been seen good thing. but these guys are like rabid dogs and a bone. They cant be nice. NO not a fan boy. Just pointing out it always better to trick Women in bed in with candy than vinegar.

Probably. I'm not a GM. There are things I don't like as well, but I think even if someone isn't being polite they can still have a valid opinion or criticism about a system. There can still be good feedback there, it can just be a little harder to see.
Please don't use that phrase again, that's just really weird to say.

I have noticed everytime Horde bias is brought it just joked off by devs or blue posts. Even in interviews

It's funny because it creates the natural narrative of factional conflict and we even see posts from both sides complaining about bias. It's been a topic forever on the forums so its something easy to joke about historically with the community. It's not something we have to raise as feedback because its just something that is always there.

The actual breakdown is closer to 50% than you would actually think when it comes to what faction has the most players.

Can we get an ETA on someone higher up able to provide a clearer statement of the state of Warfronts right now?

We're discussing it internally to try and hopefully get some answers for you guys on a broad variety of questions I've seen you guys ask. No ETA on it though.
