    Man, Blizzard can't do anything without someone getting their panties in a twist. Have you not seen the gameplay videos that have emerged online? They are working on it, but that doesn't mean they can't allocate two or three people to make these little jokes that took probably two or three hours to make. It's for fun. I would lose respect for a company that can't have fun every once in a while. Everyone needs to just chill out for a minute and relax. Besides, summer is getting close, don't you have something else to do besides criticizing a video game company for having fun?

    "It was Ivan, the Dwarf sentry who wore the novelty horse head mask because he thought it was funny. It wasn’t. Marvar was very sure on this point."

    Yes it it, that's why the first raid tier from WoD was moved to 6.1, and maybe later, if the feedback is positive

    I bet the OP had this post typed up for days in anticipation of Blizz's April fools jokes, regardless of what they were. This kind of thread is pretty much mandatory.
    "【A Chinese viewpoint on the new version:MOP】
    since we have lived in a world filled with magic and beast and lots of culture,so it is reasonable to let all kinds of culture come into World of Warcraft
    Orc:black people Jazz
    Gorblin:Israel Jews (No offensive,Gorblins are good at making money,that's ture in my eyes)"

    That's a LOT of effort put in, by someone who states that they have their hands full, and making constant progress towards the release.

    My thoughts, you don't give a **** about the community, will release when the moment is most opportune for you.

    Blizzard are not mean spirited jerks, and they like to have fun and interact with the community.

    And someone has to do it, it is not a group of people in charge ONLY for the April's fool jokes.

    If it was a line of text, with various announcements, well, fine... But just look at MMO champ today, it is filled with more news than i have seen in weeks.

    And Sigma, I am not looking for a reply from Blizzard, i just wanted to share my thoughts.
    Tell me oh great one, how long doth it take to type out several running gags from forums and a few extra tidbits of information as an april fools joke?

    An hour? Maybe two?

    How long doth it take to place some pictures of goblin models on backgrounds?

    Thirty minutes? Maybe an hour if they're REALLY trying to get those poses right?

    Happy Reaper? Look, if I have to go through this bullet point by bullet point I will. Point being, AN APRIL FOOLS JOKE ISN'T GOING TO DELAY YOUR PRECIOUS EXPANSION. It's funny and entertaining, costs nothing, and takes little to no resources to do. April Fools jokes aren't the reason WoD is releasing in the Fall, the game not being ready until Fall is the reason.

    So, last year, this didn't do an April Fool's and people were FURIOUS.

    This year, they do an April Fool's and people are FURIOUS.

    You see the problem here?
    Personally, I like it when Blizzard has a little soul.

    I respect Blizzard, and their work, would never play another MMO ( tried, not working out ), but. Just seems that they care more about these kinds of things, than something we would actually be excited to see...
    Remember the Dance studio and Path of the Titans? If Blizzard starts talking about stuff too early, players get their hopes up and then get disappointed when things don't happen.

    True fact. Last year, when they didn't do much of anything at all for April Fool's Day the complaining about Blizzard not giving a damn about the community was epic.
    If you have anything to contribute to a thread topic, please do so. Discussing moderation or calling out specific people is against the rules and makes a post liable for an infraction. Please report problem posts. If anyone is unclear about the rules please read our FAQ. Thanks.

    I think it's funny how people feel like Blizzard owes them anything whatsoever. Admittedly, my initial reaction to seeing this elaborate April Fool's stuff was "this seems like a pretty big waste of time," but not for a second did I think Blizzard that owes it to me to use their time how I'd like them to.

    Are you really saying you want the web development team to work on stuff they weren't hired to do? Because it's certainly not the various game development teams that had anything to do with the development of web site assets, since they weren't hired to design the web sites and such.

    And the people are making those jokes is because Blizzard is actively confirming them more and more. If they didn't keep responding to posts with "That would take a raid tier", it would stop being used within 2 months of the last post.

    And you, and those people spouting it that way when it wasn't said that way, remind me of how people took Tina Fey's geographically uneducated skit as fact, and completely not what was said in the Charles Gibson interview. Alaska and Russia are only 2.4 miles apart, if you can't see an island that far away you're blind.

    Last year people RAGED when they didn't do anything for April fools, and now that they do people like you cry about it.

    Okay, a couple of things.

    1. You are in no way, shape or form qualified to dictate what Blizz does or does not do with their time.

    2. You clearly lack even a basic understanding of how game development works if you think the stuff they did this year did anything to impact WoD development.

    In short, learn to laugh more and whine less.

    Yes because weeks of Artcraft (Garrisons, human female, dwarf updates, incoming draenei, undead, etc) reveals are somehow less than this ONE prank.

    Jesus do you even think before you post? Or do you just think "I feel the need to bitch and complain about something today!"

    Amen. Some people don't know what to do with themselves if they aren't whining about something.

    Honestly, they have put too much into April Fools this year... I guess they have set the WoD release date SO far out that they can fuck-around for a few weeks creating FAKE NEW MODELS instead of finishing the real new ones.

    When they release WoD without all the models done I am going to fucking demand they let me use the hideous female Draenei since it is ABSOLUTELY without a doubt part of the reason why the models won't be done on time.

    You do realize they never showed a actual 3D model, just a "screenshot" which easily could have been made in Photoshop within a hour by a talented artist. It shouldn't be assumed at all that it caused any sort of delay in the making of the actual expansion. All of these jokes are handled by the PR team, not the real developers who are working on actual projects.

    Third time I've seen this posted now... This stuff didn't take weeks. Hell, the website and all the patch notes could be done in a couple of hours.

    Rarely updated...

    Yes, because web artists have what to do with game design again?

    Everyone defending these jokes must somehow be totally satisfied with the WoD release timeline and Blizzard's management of expectations for this next expansion.
