    The Future of Diablo

    A Co-Op Brawl This Week - A New Year Bash

    Twitch Drops Return for the Clashes

    Patch 8.0.1 - Build 27291: Group Finder Addon Changes
    The latest live build made a few more changes to the Group Finder. This was likely to combat group finding addons, such as the LookingForGroup addon.

    • Searching for groups now must be done manually.
    • Entering text into the search box now must be done manually, you can't paste in text anymore.
    • Accepting group members now must be done manually, as the Auto-Accept functionality has been disabled.


    Stromgarde Warfront Unlock Timing

    We’ve seen some confusion about when Battle for Azeroth’s first Warfront, Battle for Stromgarde, will open and would like to give some clarifications.

    Similar to other types of endgame content such as raids and rated PvP, the Battle for Stromgarde will not be immediately available at launch. Instead, it’ll open a few weeks later. Initially, the Alliance will control Stromgarde Keep (which allows access to certain outdoor content in the Arathi Highlands), while the Horde begins preparations to assault. Once those preparations are finished, Horde players will be able to queue for the Battle for Stromgarde Warfront.

    A few days afterward, the roles will reverse: the Horde will control Stromgarde (thus gaining access to the outdoor content), and the Alliance will begin their own preparations to retaliate. This process will continue to alternate between Horde and Alliance on a regular cadence.

    Zappi Boi Stats
    Blizzard shared a chart that demonstrates how character names with Zap at the beginning spiked after the release of the cinematic.

    Yeah more disabling of group finder is not going to go down well, even I think disabling auto accept is beyond silly..

    Lol wut? Why would they disable auto join feature? What the ... Blizzard?

    Seems the only thing this garbage dev team can design anymore is methods to add inconvenience to everything

    Remember when we said all changes in 7.3.5 to old raids and leveling were to make everything take more time because of investor's metrics? You guys didn't believe us.

    Remember when we said all changes in 8.0 to break World Quest addons and further make old content farming more random were to make everything take more time because of investor's metrics? You guys didn't believe us.

    Well, look where we are now.

    You guys deserve this and more.

    Hey Blizz, you know what's the best part of putting together a group?

    The paperwork. Please, make even more steps before I can get four people who won't talk at all to help me do a world quest for the seventeenth time.

    Hey don't lump us all together, some of us had the common sense to see the endless shift to inconvenience and time sinks being ramped up beyond belief right after they changed to a different "success" metric for investors.

    don't really get what they want to accomplish by attacking addons that make quick group creation possible.

    I highlighted the key word for you. Quick =/= Time Spent to report to investors. You have to think on the macro scale here, adding 3 minutes to creating a world group may sound small, but over the course of repeating the same shitty world quests 2,000 times for 2 years that adds up quite a bit.

    FUCK OFF. Stop. Go fucking work on your unfinished classes instead of making world quests even more fucking aids to do.

    Interestingly reading on the Blizz forums it seems to be one of two things another bug so unintentional or it is not a bug and is intentional.. Have to wait and see if we get a proper Blue response to this..

    This is the stupidest change since the last stupid change ion made. He seriously needs to get booted so this game can start going in a positive direction again.
