Character Name Release Requests
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker)
We often receive requests from players to free up a character name. Customer Support will no longer assist with releasing names. Instead, names will automatically become available if the account that holds the name has remained inactive for the past two expansions.

For example, if an account has been inactive since before the Cataclysm expansion, all names on that account will be made available when the Warlords of Draenor expansion launches.

If you are an active player, there is no need to worry that your character names will be changed, even if you have been playing other characters for a while.

We’ll be looking at the XP that leveling players receive from Timewalking; we agree it could be more rewarding. (WarcraftDevs)

Achievements
Tune-o-Tron micro in the toy box says it needs "More Hit Tunes" achieve but there is no achieve called that
The portable audiophone was accidentally added twice; there is a duplicate entry with an older name and it's fixed in 6.2.1. (WarcraftDevs)

PvP
Remove the Ancient Artifact. It ruins Ashran, especially when it's small scale.
We are going to prevent it from spawning when populations are low. (holinka)
You're completely missing the point. Populations are ALWAYS LOW, and AA is guaranteed "I win" now
What region are you in and what time do you play? We see low populations at off-peak times but not always. (holinka)

    I wish Blizzard would exit baby mode.. And actually do things how they use to, instead of one raid with four difficulties. It sucks bad. Dare I say open up legacy servers * gasp * nah nobody would play on those, right.

    Gotta love that DLC comic.

    Haaaaah corpse sliding bug. That was hilarious in PVP. Vanish bug was annoying, but nothing compared to loot lag.

    Wildstar should be removing attunements not stats if they want anyone to play their game.

    I bet if you and all the others that wanted 'Legacy' servers would start a kickstarter campaign and came up with the money to PAY for it, I bet Blizzard would do it. Then we could see how many are serious about it.

    Maybe they should reduce the amount of resources required to build lvl 3 buildings and gold/resources to get lvl 3 garrison as its killer for newly dinged 100s at this time in the expansion.
    Last time I leveled I skipped all of Talador and got 100 half way through Spires of Arak which reduces the amount of resources that I can get unless i waste time and do every quest which is a little redundant if you are trying to get 100 fast.

    Add on top of that trying to lvl up followers while you are leveling.

    I liked that post on Wildstar. I am all for xxxx types of stats. (It reminds me of Diablo II/III).

    Right, so if I understand right with the name unlock. Blizzard wont support custom requests that normally could be done every 3rd month after an account has been inactive, instead players request is going to be denied and told to wait 2+ years? A little over the top, I think.

    Why not just make naval items cost oil like they should? I'm drowning in the stuff with nothing to use it on.

    Wildstar tried that and look how well that went so yes, you're right. Nobody would play on those.

    The alliance costumes look absolutely aweful in the trailer pics, like some bad cosplay mixed with cheesy re colouring

    Thanks for abusing the GMs for releasing names.

    Not really abuse, it is a common task they have done for years. If a name has gone inactive (3 months after last pay), then you can without any complaint, request the name released. Not abuse, a service.

    Else, I guess you called the all restore request abuse as well? Or other such mundane tasks as back in the day of getting your character restored, etc?

    GM support beyond complaints are abuse to you?

    You know for having probably one of the best support systems in the gaming industry, they sure are removing a tonne of reasons to contact a GM. Bullshit really.
  1. MrExcelion's Avatar
    Blizzard continually looks for ways to streamline and reduce GM ticket load through automated means. Name changes were probably getting out of control lately, yeah. They're also pretty much hands off with loot matters, but that's not as big of an issue with more players using personal loot.

    3 months to release a name? Yeah, right, because we don't get 1 year + of the same content that makes people leave the game until next xpac...
