    Then why wasn't it changed in 8.1.5, or 8.2, or even 8.2.5? Why was this only changed AFTER I made the post and video and sent it to them? Care to explain that?
    Way to go, I guess?

    I mean, you sound like a toddler snatching crayons, but...yay?

    Considering this guy is at least a major contributor to reporting this issue to Blizzard, I don't see a problem in owing him credit where the credit is due.

    He's likely not the sole reason Blizzard made these adjustments, but I think it's a tad ridiculous to lambaste him for pointing out his request was answered. Come on, guys.

    Be happy for the change or be on your way. Sheesh.

    How do you figure he's a major contributer? He made a thread on mmochampion with Very little replies, and a video with like 2k views. Also, the thread is like 2 weeks old. To think that Blizzard hadnt noticed the issue until this random made a post about it is kinda dumb. And to think it was important enough to fix whitin weeks is dumber. "Animators! STOP what you're doing right now! This HAS to be fixed now! Its critical!"...
    The worgen model was broken for years. Literaly undreds of people complained. It was fixed when the time was right to fix it, because there were other things the animation team had to work on 1st.

    Haha, no one else posting about it doesn't really mean anything. Blizzard has probably known about this for who knows how long. Very likely just a coincidence that they fixed it now but you never know.

    Yeah this is like that one poster who made it his mission to have the Zandalari trolls made taller, and he got to have his own thread without being shit on. OP was pretty dedicated to getting this issue fixed, let him enjoy that something he cared about and put effort into having changed actually got changed, whether it was solely because of his efforts or not.

    Is the bow shoot animation fixed? If not I'm still not race changing back.

    If you were the only one who mentioned it, it would not have gotten on a list of things to fix. Companies, especially large ones, do not invest time (read: money) into things one random person sees as a problem. Either many other people complained or, more likely, one of the animators knew about it, didn't like it themselves, and snuck in a fix. That happens a TON in development. A dev (of any kind) has a deadline, gets the job done on the due date but isn't 100% happy, and they drop in a fix later when they have time.

    He's taking credit for something he had 0 to do with. He made a thread on MMOchamp (not blizzard forums, mind you) a few weeks ago. The thread itself had fewer replys than this one. To think blizzard noticed it AND took the time to adress this minor issue almost immediately is a little silly. They don't even fix major balance issues this fast most of the time.

    I suspect it is less about pointing out the issue is fixed and far more the "look at me!" that came with it. I'm not saying its right or wrong to "lambaste" him over this, but I suspect *that* is the reason people were doing it. Maybe the responses are petty, maybe they're jaded, or maybe they're trying to inform someone of how the real world works - regardless, self-congratulation is generally frowned upon.

    Unfortunately this thread seems to have devolved into criticizing the OP as opposed to discussing the issue constructively. Closing this.
    "The finest line of poetry ever uttered in the history of this whole damn country was said by Canada Bill Jones in 1853, in Baton Rouge, while he was being robbed blind in a crooked game of Faro. George Devol, who was, like Canada Bill, not a man who was averse to fleecing the odd sucker, drew Bill aside and asked him if he couldn't see that the game was crooked. And Canada Bill sighed, and shrugged his shoulders, and said, 'I know. But it's the only game in town.' And he went back to the game." -- Neil Gaiman, "American Gods"
