Blizzard used to be known as one of those companies that goes the extra mile. The joke is what the company has become.

Super Adventure Box is nothing short of brilliant! We've been playing this thing nonstop, discovering all the secrets and beating all the zones.
Blizz tried to entertain the players with this April Fool's joke and it bit them in the butt. I wouldn't blame them for not wanting to waste time on this yearly Fool's day. I'd much rather see them devoting their time and effort to new content.
Too many crybabies. Too many players that just want to stick it to Blizz every chance they get; they continually try to search for any small negative (what they deem as negative) fault with Blizz. Never ceases to amaze me how negative the WoW community can be. Bunch of ungrateful whiners. Buck up or get out. Go play another game if you're that miserable.
And, while you're at it, go find a sense of humor.
You can search every other years 1st april to see tons of people complaining about wasting time on the joke. Hell if you are as lazy as me to search for last year post just go to diablofans to see people complaining on the warhound joke.
People complaining on page one and two and page three (didn't bother reading the rest).
It took a little longer to find the complaining in this thread, but it's there...far more of it if you go to the Pandaria thread.
Yes, people complain that Blizzard allocates time to things that don't directly influence the part of the game they play. Welcome to the internet!
At the start of that Chen video I was like, "Sorta cheesy, having one of these stories about the Dwarves."
By the end of the video my respsect for the Dark Iron Dwaves rose to new heights and now I think the rest are just assholes.
It is always easier to look nice when you are on the bad side. The two honest clan won't betray the statu quo, so Moira is free to help Varian and mark easy points with Stormwind, but the dark iron aren't truthworthy and so can't the two other clan give troop to Varian.
Me just hope blizzard don't fall in an easy open Stormwind support to Moira, would be lazy lore to the least.
She may be dedicated to the solidarity of the three kingdoms, but I'd be wary of trusting her as well.
Blizzard used to be able to put out real content (good stuff like BC and WotLK) AND have these jokes. But hey, remember they had huge layoffs. The company has gotten worse since the partnership. Just like Square Enix.
Wow. I had to stop watching that GW2 vid because the guy recording it was...well, I'll be nice and just say an incompetent player. But I kept the window up and just went to another tab, that music was freaking SICK! Lol I put that shit on repeat and just listened to it for almost half an hour.
Only in the past two years have they done something like create Crabby, the Dungeon helper (who some people seem to hate,) or the Minigames for WoW, D3, and SC2, which some people were underwhelmed by.
But I think that this post, FROM THAT THREAD BACK IN WOTLK, sums up the attitiude pretty well:
So I guess you were wrong.

“Do not lose time on daily trivialities. Do not dwell on petty detail. For all of these things melt away and drift apart within the obscure traffic of time. Live well and live broadly. You are alive and living now. Now is the envy of all of the dead.” ~ Emily3, World of Tomorrow
The Super Adventure Box thing reminds me of the year Blizzard tried to trick everybody with a Atari 2600 version of Molten Core, never actually releasing anything. I think efforts like Anet's should be applauded. No doubt Blizzard and other mmo producers are watching intently. Finally, there's healthy competition in the mmo business. WoW players should be excited that Anet is actually standing its ground against Blizzard, because this means Blizzard no longer has control of the mmo market, and soon they must make calls that we, the players, can only benefit from. It's continued pushes like Super Adventure Box that reminds us WoW is no longer THE mmo, and whether it be a switch to F2P or actual content releases for even the silliest of events, WoW must change to stay in the game.
