    Is it normal for Blizzard to delete user comments from their Youtube trailers?

    Apparently Blizzard is doing damage control by deleting some of the negative comments from the recent 4.3 trailer on Youtube.

    Is this something worrying or does this normally happen with videos on the official WoW channel?

    They aren't anymore it seems.

    Well they have via their twitter linked to things that give negative views on things like MoP so I can only imagine the things written were rather rude or trolling than constructive if what you said is true,

    normal ? nope. suprising considering this being the worst instance trailer since totc, and i doubt any other? ... nope...

    makes you wonder, if they are just trying to do bare minimum and keep the fanbois continue to blindly love the lack of love they put into the game these days, or if even the cinematic/in-game cinematic cut team has moved over to MoP/Titan?

    It's something new I suppose. Previous works didn't get as much criticism, their 4.3 video has a 40% dislike rating, which didn't used to happen.

    It's because people are sick of Blizzard spraying febreeze on dog shit and saying that it's okay. Well guess what after an hour that dog shit will smell like dog shit again.

    That was the worst patch trailer i've seen since ToC.....i was expecting more from blizz with 4.3 being the final patch, what a fitting way to end this expansion.....

    We already had a thread on this 12 hours ago. It got locked.

    Kinda funny how many dislikes it has compared to any other trailer (even 3.2 ToC)...

    The youtube community is even worse than this one (when it comes to senseless and uninformed bile-spewing) so I'd imagine so.

    Actually I was looking through the comments to get a feel for others opinions, and I didn't notice them editing much (did they really?). Actually, if Blizzard moderated the comments, the majority of comments would be gone..

    Less fanboys in twiter, and people who can't comment on official forums because they have cancelled their accounts. For me it's a bit more reliable the comments on youtube.

    I'm not sure why they'd bother to allow comments on Youtube in the first place. The posts there makes trade chat seem like a Mensa convention.

    You do realise the posts could be getting reported and deleted by youtube?

    No way! It's obviously Blizzard doing insane damage control because everyone hates their game and nobody plays it anymore!

    Have I got the right idea about this thread?

    Honestly, I don't know how anyone works for Blizzard and keeps their sanity, to be honest. I feel like bashing my head against the desk reading some of the comments/posts made by the community and I don't even have to personally deal with it every day at work.

    Meh. If people really hate the trailer that much just down vote it. No need to comment.

    Granted it wasn't stellar, but I wouldn't troll their youtube account or down vote the video.

    it reminds me of the old ZG trailer, I can't tell if that's because the people that worked on making trailers decent quit, or if they're trying to cling to some sort of nostalgia.

    If there is but ONE truth in the human world, it is this.

    I got nothing agains't the trailer. It aint the Ulduar trailer, but not even Kobe can score 50 points a game for a whole season.
