    Why are thread with false leeks kept opened for so long?

    Because some people assume that the state of a thread being open/closed validates or invalidates a leak, so people can say "Boubouille said X" when mods lock a thread.

    Since that happened in the past, we now only lock threads if they're super obviously false, and I can't prove that the entirety of this is false, just small pieces, so it will stay open.

    I guess they must've put all the artists on the engineering team then, makes sense right?

    Always nice with some info, if only to speculate.

    There are multiple parts of a development team and coding is part of it not just artists. A team won't downsize because the game is out of development, even when a game is published there is still a LOT of bugs. You implement a patch to fix bugs more bugs show up from patching. I honestly don't think the team has downsized especially since they have a new expansion coming out. A expansion causes more bugs and as soon as it launches there will be a TON of bugs that needs to be fixed that they may or may not expect. NOT only on PC's but on consoles each of which requires a team to patch.

    Further more expansions also have patches that require artists when adding new content. Those same artists could also be working on another expansion out.

    Damn those generic field onions posing as the much finer forms of Allium Amaryllidacae Alliodae. Moderators must stop this onion disaster! (PS, not making fun of the poster...just providing a culinary chuckle). In all reality, like Sim said, moderator action on these threads communicates a message through the Tin Foil Network and it creates a much larger problem than one contained thread. Unless they have verified information either way, they typically let them be.

    - The Team wants to launch expansions faster but it is still a problem because there arent enough good developers who applied at Blizzard Entertainment

    I love it when such threads pop up, so much fun to read that leaked stuff even if it's probably just fake

    These two sound highly suspect, the rest are reasonable. So maybe some of this is an actual leak, or just educated guesswork.

    P.S. Does anyone else think it's utterly insane how much time it's taking them to release SC2 expansions? It's the same damn engine! It's the same game!

    A profile with four posts giving information about WoD release date. I don't believe you.

    Perfect example of why "community" forums are poisonous to the health of a development team. These developers are wasting hundreds of hours trying to stem the tide of incessant bitchery that would never, ever abate so long as these entitled, unfortunate human beings don't get their way.

    And that conflicts with having Target Release dates how? You do realize you don't go Gold with a game overnight, right? Just because Blizzard doesn't give us specific dates/quarters until they're sure they're ready (minus TBC) doesn't mean they don't plan ahead.

    Not a single person has focused on the SC: Ghost statement. That's the most unbelievable bullet point of all of them to me!

    Most of these are reasonable guesses. I'd be pretty surprised if not at least a handful of them turn out to be true.

However, there's a maximum amount of employee you can have at any given time and pushing it to do things faster usually end up doing the contrary. It's just too much management.



    This was for the characters and not the environment/assets. They are not currently hiring environment artists (unless you're one in a thousand, in which case they might check your portfolio). And you guessed it, the long part isn't the characters but the environment, as they could've shipped the expansion without the new models.

    Beside, most of what has been posted are things we already knew or highly plausible. It's generalities that makes people believe it, like pretty much every other "leaks". I also highly doubt that an account with 4 posts is true.
    call me a fool but it took me les then 5 min to find

    dunno but looks like they are still looking. but finding some1 that matches blizzards standarts can be hard.
