    I think just he's upset few people share his viewpoint (on this thread at least) and has poor skills in civil discourse (or is not using the ones he has).

    Well this thread has jumped into it's 8th page of idiocy, and either you are too stupid to have a conversation with (likely) or you're just being insulting (also likely).

    Have a good, although sad, evening/day.

I'm reminded of Bashioks statement about D3 before it was released. For the life of me I can't find it but it was basically don't get to hyped when they had done nothing by hype it up...

    Here's the full quote actually

    "On a more serious note, I too worry that we won't be able to meet the expectations people have built up for themselves. Part of my job is managing people's expectations, so... eh... stop it. Stop thinking about how awesome this game could be. Just imagine it's a new M. Night Shyamalan movie. Sure Sixth Sense was amazing and Unbreakable had it's moments, but this right here is the sequel to The Village ... or The Happening ... or Signs ... or any of the movies besides the two I first mentioned. So just like, lower those expectations, but still definitely buy the game please, and everything will be just fine. K?
    But then they market the shit out of it and hype the shit out of it and all the fans do it to and all the fans in this thread are defending them for it but then they all turn around say what name so boss? Hype? who told you to get hyped? It's your fault for getting hyped... I don't know I just don't know.

    My point was that Blizzard know that can get away with producing mediocre content and this playerbase will still buy it. I guess this is the modern era where its not socially acceptable to tell the truth unless it makes people feel good, so I wont label (and I never have labeled, moron is your word not mine) the current playerbase. Call them what you will.

    There is a gold advert thread that's been open for near 30 minutes, so unfortunately I don't think there are any admin's around to make your very agreeable plea to be met, sadly.

    If not "moron", then what term would you use for a player that acts this way when first hearing about the Celestial Steed:

    "OOO SPARKLE PONY!! GIMMEE GIMEE!!

    FYI, using the above quote to convey a message is what is not socially acceptable, not the lack of truth.

    I think I solved the mystery of 108 dollars, but yeah it's 3 AM EST, it's sleeping time for most.

    If you expect lots more than what they posted...then yea you got your hype up to much I HOPE and that's a big hope theyll implement some other fucking system to get around daily quest grinding rep bullshit. If they did that then this would be the best patch in the universe.

    Truth is largely opinion so speak whatever you like just please do it more politely in the future and maybe you'll be able to talk about said truth instead of this.

    The fact that they have to remind us twice of how 'major this patch is', just reeks of desperation to quiet the grumblings about slow updates in the past. If you actually look at these 'major features' objectively, these are things that are barely worthy of a press release, let alone an entire patch. UI fixes for pet battles? A minigame? An exciting paragraph this is ultimately describing...daily quests? These things are considered major features now in wow? And is a simple point conversion from one stat to another really a 'major feature' of the first real content patch?

    Remember when daily quests were a chore to get through so you could get to the fun stuff? Kind of sad that dailies are now the real meat of endgame.
    I don't know from which world you come from, but that's common advertisement practice all over ther world. Also, nowhere there is said that 'bug fixes and more daily quests' are the ONLY content of the patch 5.1. Your vision is so narrow that I wonder how you can see at all. A comparison of your post would be someone saying "Look, this car is a four-wheel car!" and a person with your kind of attitude starts complaining and whining to everyone that said care has no spare wheel because it only has four.

    And again, the Blue post was just a PREVIEW! You never, ever, EVER reveal the full content of what you're preparing. NEVER! Otherwise it spoils the element of wonder people get when they finally get the new content. Seriously. Check out movie trailers. That's just one example. You're whining about a PREVIEW. Can't you see how that sounds silly and childish?

    I don't really even know what were talking about at this point, but I wouldn't call them anything. Someone who buys Blizzard products maybe.
