I thought the Q&A´s was hillarious.... I don´t think the devs meant to be "Mean"
If you watched the day before when "the red shirt guy" asked his questions... He got like a almost epic introduction. Metzen saying "he" appeared with perfect lighting, what a enterance etc, cheering him on....
So I dont think there were a lack of it... They probably held back because they could not give all the details....
Other years I think they have had more Q&A´s after all panels, and that I miss... But no critic to this year

Crazy. I swear by now somebody has literallly complained about bloody everything from Blizzcon. Oh wait. I think we didn't have a topfit about how the des wore shitty clothes
Funny thing is: many additions to the game seem inspired by listening to MMO C poster

Biggest disappointment was the lack of quality questions and the long winded intro to the question. They should have a rule set in place to stop that BS so more people can ask questions then we may get some good ones, sure one of the devs said "ask me about quivers" just shows maybe there getting fed up with stupid questions too
The real morons were the people asking completely asinine questions (after having listed their realm, guild, char name, alt name, measurements, what theu had for dinner and how all their characters are level 90) such as:
"The Celestial Dragons are not Celestials or dragons, what is up with that".
"I am in a 10 man guild, what do I do".
"I am in a 10 man guild, what options do I have".
"I am in a 10 man guild, how do I recruit".
"I am in a 10 man guild, how do I count to 20?".
"Vanilla server? VANILLA SERVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR".
"Why is there a lion on the Alliance crest when there are no lions in the Eastern Kingdoms? HURRRRRRR"
"Eyes of the Beast please? It was very gud for me".
"Why would I pay for server transfer now?". <-- Like.. what?
- Blizzard doesn't listen to feedback
- Blizzard is out of touch with their playerbase
- my opinion is shared by the majority
- Subscription numbers indicate that my point is correct
Yeah, just watching the streams when people would announce their name, guild and realm. I'm just yelling at my computer "NO ONE GIVES A SHIT!!!1!1 God damnnit!" Ask your question quickly so more questions can be asked.
And then, half of the questions are easily answered if they had paid attention.
Go to the official WoD site. Listen to the trailer and zone preview music. Also, under the media section they have four pieces of music you can download. I've linked them below. I think they are a better indication of WoW's music.

http://media.blizzard.com/wow/warlor...desolation.mp3 Sounds really good. I think the biggest thing to worry about is not how Jason Hayes does music, but Russell Brower affecting his compositions. My personal opinion about Brower is that he is good composer and nice fella all around, but many times his compositions are way over the top, too bombastic and doesnt fit the mood. He has done some good pieces though like Grizzly Hills zone theme.

They did have a lore panel. It was called "The Adventure Continues"
I wish that some of the questions weren't asked, such as the 10 man questions over and over again. They wasted time for good questions. I also felt the movie panel for a whole hour was a complete waste of time. They came up there with basically no information at all, and the blizzard dev had to drag out some details. That panel should have only took 20 minutes with no questions since they didn't answer any really. I got pretty pissed off to when directv cut off the music panel when there was still plenty of time for them to let them play instead of showing me a screen for 15 minutes of what was to come next. The sound for this blizz-con was awful too most of the time.
lol i can see your point. I already agreed to this on another posters comment. I still think some of the devs in that panel were pretty rude but I also agree that some of the comments.... well your post says it best really.

The biggest issue with the Q&A panels, honestly, were they were filled mostly with really weak questions. Only a few of them piqued my interest. Granted, they're the ones who made the trip to Blizzcon, so by no means am I faulting them for it, we just didn't get much information from it.
Also, I think part of the issue is there were no big "HOLY SHIT, I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT'S ACTUALLY HAPPENING" reveals for stuff being added to the expansion. We've all been expecting new-models for quite some time (still a bit shocked there's no new Race coming), and while Garrisons look insanely awesome, I'm still eager to see more of this "customization" aspect. Inventory improvements are pretty stellar, though; they just don't give to a shot of adrenaline like some other announcements :P
One thing I will say is this; Dave Kosak should be present for every single panel, ever. He was hilarious, seemed genuine and friendly, and didn't seem like he was giving PR-responses to everything. The rest were great, too, but Kosak was just a lot of fun to watch and listen to.
The only thing I got pretty disappointed about was the Classic server answer. Not the answer ''No'' itself, but how it was given.
While Classic server has been discussed to death, and there are people against it, and people for it, and Blizzard had said before they have no plans for it, it was sad to hear the developer J. Allen Brack say something like ''You think you want it, but you don't, you don't want it at all.''
I thought for myself; ''I know very well what I want, thank you very much.''
All I see is whine threads. That's the most disappointing thing.
I could be off but I have a feeling the morale is low in the Wow team.
Subs are rapidly declining and the pressure is on them. They looked stressed to me, while they usually seem to have a great time at Blizzcon.
I watched all 18 hours or whatever it was on the main stage, and my biggest gripe was there was no Q&A after What's Next, 10 mins of Q&A after the raid panel (and we knew people would have a lot of questions), and they cut off the starcraft 2 post-tournament commentary mid-sentence, twice. They couldn't go past 530 sharp.
The Live Raid almost went to a tiebreaker, which would have been a huge debacle. They woulda stopped that right on the dot too.
Yeah that was the thing that surprised me too.. how ruthless they were with the schedule. But I guess they have to be to re-arrange the stages and such.
