    So the TBC store mounts were april fools jokes?

    You can tell how little faith people have in the Activision-Blizzard dev team, if they can't tell a cash shop mount in a classic TBC is an April Fools joke or not.

    Wait is the Viridian Phase Hunter a joke or not? Cause I recall wowhead saying they data-mined it way before April fools.

    Yes. Because:
    a) These community-made April Fools' jokes surely were made by Blizzard.
    b) The community manager who comes up with Blizzard's April Fools jokes is the same game developer that works in the actual game.

    Seriously, what the fuck, people? It's like you don't even TRY to think before posting anti-Blizzard shpiel.

    This stopped being funny a decade ago, if it ever was.

    Yeah a few years ago the april fools things were funny, but at this point we've been waiting a long time for new content, and the resources that went towards this could have gone towards things worth while like the heritage armors or the new options for allied races like nightborne, who never even got updates.

    To be fair though Blizzard is pretty fucked and has been for a while when it comes to giving paying customers content for the insane 21CAD they except us to pay every just to access the same content you have been paying that for. They do kind of suck as a whole now when it comes to Warcraft as a franchise.

    The Phase Hunter isn't a joke, the others are.

    Besides a legitimate chance of a "redeemed sylvanas" (*puke*) happening in one form or another, at the end of the day this is just a sad collection of things that sound more interesting than most of the shit we actually get. I'd totally take a properly armored undead horse for my DK for example, without having to sell my soul to the gods of utter shite content and their apostels of garbage PvP. Even if these are community made, they aren't really funny so much as a sad reminder of what could be. Some of the stuff is obvioulsy just stupid, but that in itself isn't exactly funny.

    But that's a whole different matter altogether, though. The poster I replied to heavily implied in his post that making those April Fools jokes somehow detracts from working on the actual game.

    That's like saying the guy standing outside in the streets handing out flier ads for this new restaurant should instead be in said restaurant kitchen cooking.
