Certainly happy that new communities have sprung up and new friendships have been formed. But not at the expense of fairplay. (holinka)
Unfortunately, a few people have circumvented those restrictions and we've had to create additional measures. (holinka)
I am not sure I understand. So working together as a team is frowned upon in an MMO?
Seems like you're twisting my words. (holinka)

Why no just remove the (Ashran) debuff from the game? take less code hrs, Please?
We think it's important that all players that enter Ashran have an equal opportunity to compete. (holinka)
idk if you've been to ashran but they all seem extremely one sided, mostly in favor of alliance
I receive an equal number of "Horde always wins" and "Alliance always wins" complaints. (holinka)

Ghostcrawler Tweets
Ghostcrawler still occasionally talks about WoW. Remember that he no longer works for or speaks for Blizzard.

Exactly. So maybe let's give up on the whole petition to get someone fired strategy. (Autocorrect said "furred" lol.) (OccupyGStreet)

If you aren’t controversial, either you’re a puppet or you do nothing important.
That may be the case, but some companies view social media as a distraction, so being controversial is a net loss. (OccupyGStreet)

    That GW2 trailer was full of every movie trailer cliche, ever. Excited to play it but, my gosh.

    GW2 trailer's quality is alright for the artstyle they picked. It's always been a more of a painted style, rather than CGI.

    GW2 is in a good spot, once they start pumping out content again post-expansion release then I'd like the "no endgame" people to eat their hats.

    Well, you should have eaten it shaken, not stirred.

    How many fucking wipes hasn't occured in hfc because dumbasses barrage?
    This. The stereotype exists for a reason. I'm sick of wiping cause of tards that can't handle barrage. The moonkin tards with starfall are right behind them.

    That DLC was good.

    Although it's sad that Barrage is still the go-to talent for its tier. I try to be careful with not hitting extra mobs on my hunter alt, but there are some situations where you're much better off not even using that ability. (And really, would you bother to change out the talent for trash?) I miss using Glaive Toss, wish it could compete with Barrage.

    Holinka gets butt hurt *every time* someone calls him on his non-sense.
    We're removing more and more social aspects of WoW by the patch and hotfix -- it's getting laughable.
    What WAS supposed to feel like "world pvp at its finest" is, literally, no different than a shit ball alterac valley with longer queues and different rewards.

    So now we end up with, basically, a new BG. Nothing else.

    Why don't they just make Ashran a BG and move on with life?

    To be fair, it's REALLY hard to gauge how wide of an area that happens.

    It's like the Shaman's that pulled add's if they used Nova in BRF. They had *no idea* it would pull the downstairs add's from upstairs.

    Imagine if paladins had their conc tripled or quadrupled. They'd be pulling a lot as well.

    Now huntards have their name because right-click autoshot as well as not turning taunts off. THAT is where the stereotype started.
    Warlocks don't have this because they have only one pet made for tanking and they often know this whereas hunters don't. Pretty much ANY pet tank now since they can spec any pet how they want.

    As a tank and healer, I don't heal pets that taunt *unless* the hunter is helping the tank for some reason (e.g. tank is undergeared, tank is about to die, whatever).

    I think the issue with Wildstar was just that it wasn't different enough, and we've all invested years into WoW (Sunk Cost Fallacy).

    I don't think it matters who or what he responds to. Everyone thinks they're the thoughtful ones with comments that pertain to something. And, invariably, someone agrees with them and complains that the guy didn't get a response...

    Erm because its called MMO-Champion and not WoW champion?. Also there's sometimes news on other MMOs and other forums. Yes it originated as a WoW news site but why shouldn't they post info on other MMO's?
