    I played two Vanilla betas in 2004 (US and Korean) but I wasn't invited to this one.
    Where do I report this bug?

    And this is coming from someone who played in Vanilla, albeit only for a few months.
    Also immortal fulborgs that keep reseting.

    Because somewhere in wow there is the potential for an actually good game, which they got closer to find in the past before moving away from it.

    And because I don't think that the game can improve if they only listen to the (increasingly small) subset of their customers who are still happy enough with wow to keep a subscription up (Google "survivorship bias"). When you listen only to the people with positive opinions you can't improve your product.

    This is pretty much the largest forum where someone who doesn't have a sub on a North american account have any chance to be heard by the devs.

    Sorry that people pointing out the huge flaws in your idiotic game bothers you so much. It's interesting how much you care about others opinions. I mean you're having fun in the game, and that's all that counts, right? Or perhaps you're not having as much fun as you keep telling yourself so negative opinions bother you?

Many companies use an open beta weekend (clearly just a free demo) as a marketing tool close to launch to build some interest and hype - this really isnt the type of game for that - its a 15yo remake of a game that sits in a niche market to begin with.

    Stop being part of outrage culture and slow down and think, just for a moment. You dont "need" to pay for access to the beta - access to the beta is granted to all current subscribers. If you are not a current subscriber, and are interested in the product, pay the sub and get access to all wow up to BfA, and the beta. If you are not interested, then why complain?

    For every game you have LITERALLY never paid anything for to play the beta, i can list a dozen you needed to have a pre-purchase to access, so leave the hyperbole for another thread.

    The fact people cannot understand that this game has no box price, and therefore no pre-purchases, something used by MOST games to control access to their beta, is completely beyond words.

    you strike me as the sort of person who would pay a Netflix sub, and then complain that its overpriced because you only watch RoboZuna, so your sub should be less.
    so i have to pay for access to betas i have never had to pay for access to with blizzard in order to prove i am interested in classic.
    stop apologizing for blizzard and think for yourself - we didn't have to pay for access to beta before. i got BFA beta. without paying. my friend got access to betas for Cata through warlords. without paying. without subbing.

    i understand there is no box price - but i have literally never had to pay for access to a wow beta before. period. not even a sub. but go ahead and excuse them requiring it at the time when it should be the least needed anyway.

    Any other companies letting you play "betas" without paying?
    I dont know, it doesnt seem that bad.

    what other companies do doesn't matter.
    what i know is this - i haven't had to be subscribed to world of warcraft in order to play beta in as far back as i can remember. played BFA beta. no sub. legion and mists beta. no sub.
    why all of a sudden is this changing now?
    oh right - because its a way for blizzard to milk unsubbed people waiting for classic for an extra 4 months of money.

    It was the social aggro that always used to get me, 1 slight mispull and you could end up with half a dozen bearing down on you.

    1) Its good for business
    2) Its a way to pat the playerbase on the back that is actually supporting the game nowadays.

    Its not that bad IMO

    1) then i fully expect you to raise a crap storm when the next expansion goes into beta and it doesn't require a sub. you're defending this you better get upset if they revert.
    2) and yet it basically thumbs the nose at those who have been patiently waiting for classic.

    wow. seems to me you dont even like wow. why even get upset?

    and it does not really matter. beta characters will be wiped anyway. late august we all get to have fun with classic wow again.

    Oh so you of all people clownpenisfart are going to be the one that somehow finds the perfect WoW and by shit posting on MMO C forums it will just get made? Devs aren’t here reading your shitposts bud. Especially when they’re by a guy who isn’t posting on his main account due to a previous ban. The overwhelming majority of posts about WoW on forums have always been negative. Ever since 2004. The majority is always mad. Because those happy don’t spend all day on forums. They’re playing the game.

    If you really want to be heard you’re better off tweeting them. But we both know that isn’t your goal here. Otherwise you’d be giving constructive criticism instead of just making meme level jokes and attacking other players.

    Also you’re being a tad slow in the head here. I don’t play WoW anymore. I think BFA sucks. But unlike you I don’t use my spare time shit talking the game and the people who still have fun with it. So no, the negative opinion doesn’t bother me. You’re barking up the wrong tree. I’ll be playing classic. Because I prefer that. Do I think it’s perfect? No. It’s got shit tons of problems. Do I care? Fuck no. I’m gonna have fun playing with my friends and guildies who I still talk to from 2005. I think that’s better than whining about both versions of the game. But you go head and be Goldilocks bud. And keep mocking those people who enjoy the game for what it is.

    Hahahahaha love how they are just trolling the classic community at this point.
    I know, these blue posts are hilarious.

    "But I remember it different, fix it Blizzard!!!"

    "Sorry, you wanted classic and this is exactly how it was. Please stop submitting bug reports that are actually features and be happy we even decided to devote resources to this shit."

    What account I post with is utterly irrelevant. If I posted on my main account, you'd learn the following fascinating facts: my main account name is "furniture", is not even banned (I didn't remember the pw and it was faster to just create a new account than wait for the login timeout to expire), and have made a few hundred posts over ten years. There you go, you know all about my sacrosanct ~Main Account~. Knock yourself out.

    It's obviously (but like most idiots making up the wow community you are purposefully obtuse) not about any individual voice, it's about using the only available venue to provide feedback for people who aren't currently subscribed (which coincidentally are probably people who aren't satisfied with the game, but yet still care enough about it to be willing to give it another chance).
    When blizzard look at their subscription numbers and look at all those they lost and why they don't seem to be coming back or not to stay for more than one sub cycle despite the release of new xpacks, they ought to ask themselves what all those players want. They won't find it on the official forums since the most dissatisfied players, not having an active subscription, can't post there.

    Again this is obviously not about any single voice or poster.

    The overwhelming majority of [whatever]
    Let's me stop you right here, you aren't allowed to use the words "overwhelming majority" about wow players unless you have actual data. Trying to pass your opinions as facts under the pretense of speaking for some "overwhelming majority of players" is a waste of everyone's braincells. I don't think you can afford to waste too many.

    Also you’re being a tad slow in the head here. I don’t play WoW anymore.
    Sorry, I don't have a copy of your gaming resume on my desk, random forum poster.

    So no, the negative opinion doesn’t bother me.
    Then why are you here busting my balls about them?

    Classic Winds released a neat video 2 days ago about Classic damage values, and guess what, private serves got all wrong and harder.

    they always say you need an active sub to get beta invite, but the truth is you don't. have had 2 beta invites while my account was inactive, Cata and MoP. Got the stress test invite now with my account being active for the first time in over a year, so doubt it was cus I re-activated a week ago. there are other factors that matter a lot more than your sub being active or not

    You miss the point. You need an active sub to participate.
