    The crafting changes make sense/are in line with old expansions, but they needed to communicate it more clearly instead of trying to sneak it in.

    I like how he mentions crowd control but they Nerf crowd-control in several parts of the Mythic dungeons

    "Play the game how we say. Have fun the way we tell you to have fun. Stop complaining."

    The whole patch notes/documentation fiasco has been an issue for years at this point, although the volume of undocumented changes definitely increased dramatically in Legion, with no signs of stopping in BFA.

    At a certain point, much like "improving communication," Lore and Ion need to actually state how they're going to fix and improve this, and demonstrate that they're capable of doing so, or it just begins to sound like nobody on the team knows what the other teams/members are doing, and there's little to no organization or leadership.

    In other words, if this is truly accidental and not intentional, they have provided no evidence and it points toward gross incompetence and poor leadership. Not exactly confidence-instilling in your consumers.

    You have to wonder how bad their internal tools are if it's seriously like "Jimmy was asked to change this, Jimmy did change this but Jimmy didn't write down that he changed this, so we didn't know Jimmy changed this"

    Imo I am getting tired of the good old PR Bullshit "the team didnt mean to do this or that... it didnt end up the way we wanted... You guys deserve better" get your shit together man, or add more people that can. Player feedback was more than given throughout the end of Legion and until now

    We don't want AE stun and cleave and we want CC, but we don't want mobs to be CC able and we want the timer so tight that if you stop to CC and single burn you won't make the timer.

    Cool. Seems like your statements all make sense in the real world of CC and burn single target to beat a timer vs AE stun that shit and burn it all quickly. Wonder which of these works and which doesn't.

    What fucking idiots are posting these questions?!

    Patch notes were thorough, but not complete.


    No shit....

    These Q&A's are getting worse and worse. Ion talks for ages and i am always left feeling like nothing was explained or accomplished. The questions that are picked are useless and no one cares about them. Josh, it's almost 2019 and you are rocking a perm my dude... no need to announce you are a virgin like that, time to change the hair. I feel bad for you rocking that perm.

    Are players not aware that they can use the in-game voice chat for their PuG?

    Are devs not aware that free and superior options exist aka Discord?

    Guilds use voice chat. Just not crappy built in ones.

    Imagine the sentence "if we did this, players would be able to use the cool new stuff right away" being construed as a bad thing. O.o

    It may lack features, like ranks and such, but it's really not crappy. It's used extensively in OW and is actually really good quality. So in a pug situation, like M+, I don't see a real reason not to use it.

    It's not bad, probably because Blizzard didn't actually make it lol

    The team forgot to tell players about this at the start of Battle for Azeroth.

    You "forgot" to tell us a lot of shit at the start eh Ion?

    Seems to be just the usual BS Q and A where nothing of worth is being answered.

    The team will shift AP to the Heart itself, allowing you to make choices about permanent powers, potentially active abilities. More to share in the future!
    oh, like people have been saying all along.... lol

    You seemed to miss the point of that question. They asked if blizzard was going to do any thing to make pugging better with how much you have to communicate. Blizzard has put a voice chat in that works perfectly fine other then that there is nothing they can really do to make little jimmy in a pug communicate.

    Basically, we use that voicechat all the time in OW, it's quality is on par with Discord, not surprising since they outsourced it to a pretty big voip company.

    I've never heard someone use so many words to say so little.


    He starts off saying it's easier to design by not giving people new abilities, admits to it not being received too well, and then rambles for 4 minutes about something different than what he started with.
