    I kind of agree with OP. I don't play the game anymore but I can't lie and say that I wasn't excited to see what they came up with for 4/1 today... As far as losing their edge though?.. No.

    For people who missunderstood this.
    It's the fact that,Blizzard usually do this things to show support for their games, IE sc2 and their april fools
    The fact that both diablo 3 and WoW didn't get any, is a tall tell sign, ( I hope I'm wrong), that more likely they just don't care anymore, unlike they used to.

    Be reminded that certain things like this is for fun. It helps boost the moral of the game. the WoW department in the past few years were getting infamous with their april fools, and then suddenly they didn't do one this year.

    It's not about the joke, it's the fact that, a lot of people feel like they stopped supporting WoW.
    I mean if sc2 got their support then what happened to WoW, which made blizzard the way it is now?

    You know that mmo-champion as a fansite is losing its edge.....

    ....when they don't even bother deleting posts that have nothing to do with the game. Really is pathetic if you ask me. Glad I don't come here for anything usefull because all the posts are by idiots who visit a website for a game they claim to no longer play.

    Yes, and I'm stating yours is wrong, which is also my opinion.

    A typical raid leader command would be something like "Yo Scrub, why don't you YOLO 1337 yards to the left because the boss's Swag is about to hit us in 3 seconds".

    This person hit it right on the head. It's the fact that the company as a WHOLE, not just WoW itself, doesn't give a shit about its products anymore.

    The StarCraft one is awesome. I got a good laugh out of it this morning.

    Because words like "best" and "fun" are completely objective, and not subject to difference in personal opinion.

    It was right to complain about Blizz not doing an april fools this year...

    ...but this was absolutely the WRONG angle to take to complain about that. =(

    I'd rather say "What!? C'MON BLIZZ! Where's your sense of passion you had in the past! That's a STAPLE TRADITION of you and your community!!!" vs trying to make this some huge business demoralization conspiracy angle of Activision...

    April fool's jokes are likely made in a day or less... Easter probably screwed that up a bit, can't blame them really for not doing it once.

    Or you could look at it this way: Best april fool's troll is to troll the entire playerbase by not putting out the expected troll.

    If that's true, why did it change Starcraft? It would have left them all. Also you clearly haven't played Starcraft HOTS because if so you'd know that they clearly put a lot of time and effort into that, it's absolutely magnificent - even if you don't like RTS particularly it's still amazing fun and very well made.

    An opinion cannot be wrong, that's the definition of it. It can be misinformed, but never "wrong" as such.
    Your not stating an opinion, your stating a fact, and your *fact* is wrong.

    Learn the difference, else your just making yourself look more and more an idiot.
