    blizz blocking all talk of 60 4 90 on wow forums?

    So I just noticed every post on wow forums about 90 boost cost getting locked and people being told" There are existing threads on this topic. If you’d like to add anything further, please continue the discussion in one of those." No there isnt. There is like 5 posts and all ficed are locked twlling people to talk somewhere else. I want blizz to have made a mistake and not acting like they cant srand behind their decision so they just block talking about it? Im for 60 4 90 it seems fair and wont be abused but I cant see wht blizz dosnt explain themself

    There is one that has 18 pages I think, but why they make their life harder is beyond me, link the thread that you want people to talk in, maybe they wont keep making threads that way.

    We do the same thing here. We don't allow lots of threads on the same subject.

    yeah and theres no possible way it could be for that reason given right? and it would totally make more sense for them just just have pages of threads on the exact same topic /eyeroll

    If the thread isn't easily found then yes they need to put a link in their lock response to easier facilitate finding the existing thread.

    But I suspect a lot of people are just plain lazy or not searching correctly to begin with.

    Looks like this one is still open, and has 19 pages. They're not closing all of them, they're just doing, as Dars said, the same we do here. They're closing a ton of topics about the same subject.

    EU-forums thread: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/9751075813
    US-forums thread: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/11764237068 (This one would be the closest to a "Whining about 90$ bucks" thread, as apparently there isn't one on US forums).

    You see, the issue here is the same as most threads: "I have no idea what I'm doing, so it means Blizzard is an evil corporation of hell that is trying to corrupt the world".

    The thread you see first when entering the EU forum: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/9751075813

    I only looked a bit on the US forum but found no locked threads, in fact the people there doesn't seem so concerned. You made this thread thinking they close thread to prevent people from talking about it, when they're just following normal forum rules. You're smart.

    Good, it's just spam when people can't go to a post that already talks about it.
    People don't need to start a new thread to voice their opinion which is the same as others.

    I stopped posting on blizz forums years ago.
    Completely inadequate moderators and terribad community.
    I suggest you to do the same.

    Once on the PvP forums back in Cata, someone made a thread that was literally just ascii art of a giant erect penis. It was on the front page of that forum for about a week before a moderator actually decided to skim the PvP forums and lock it.

    Apparently you didn't go to the official PvP forums during Cataclysm.

    They did the same thing with CRZ threads, and other threads which continually challenged their position on a new feature. It is easier to lock/delete than it is to respond and tell everyone to fuck off cause this is happening. Also, their forum, their prerogative.

    Spmaming threads about the same topic just clogs the forums.
    Blizzard do not destroy Jaina Proudmoore's character. Make her who she once was, not full of rage and vengeance.,If you are curious about me or about my writing aspirations, feel free to pst me.

    Forums have rules. That is where they explain themselves. The fact that people first don't read the rules, then violate the rules and then whine because their threads get locked and demand Blizzard should explain themselves is just how it is in these days of "60 4 90" abreviations....

    So, in short: the internet.
