    Fair enough. I do think that the Paladin elements do separate them somewhat from the standard Elf mold, though—that, and their totalitarian tendencies are still there, I think, just moderated. It would be more interesting if they went full-on totalitarian, though, and become a Light-based benevolent dictatorship. Blood Elves in general do have the most opportunity for a distinct personality from standard fantasy Elves, I think, even to this very day. There are still interesting things to do with their plot.

    I am slowly becoming convinced that some of you (and definitely one of you in particular) are actual Blizzard employees or some form of contractors with true knowledge of upcoming patch information and the next expansion.


    Some true out-of-touch "hello, fellow kids!" vibes going on.

    I highly doubt a Blizzard employee would hang out here.

    Naw, not you. A couple of the accounts made in the past 2 months (not including banned fake leakers) however...

    Namely, that means someone here can hold down a job.

    Elaborate immediately. Speculative conspiracies are my lifeblood.

    You know that they name a whole patch Tides of Vengeance after a leak/meme that popped up here right? Some Blizzard employees definitely do read these forums, and this sub-forum in particular. And they're mocking us, of that I'm sure, AH! Rascals.

    Not saying Blizzard would definitely do that, but other companies (and certain production personnel on films & TV) have been known to frequent popular discussion websites to throw people off the scent. The professional wrestling industry is a prime example of this as well.

    This necessitates intelligence that Blizzard does not have.

    Well we've had verified leaks in the past and just like Reddit and 4Chan, MMOChampion is a cornerstone (although a tad more obscure) of the WoW forum community. These forums are not as niche as people on it pretend they are

    I checked the profile of who you mean and while I can totally see where you are coming from, I don't think that person (or honestly, anyone in this thread) is a Blizzard shill/employee lmao

    I know if I were a Blizz employee, I'd definitely do it.
    1. You get free feedback from jedi scum all kind of current and past players (most of them being slightly toxic and negative ofc, otherwise this wouldn't be WoW but any other game)
    2. You get to mess with them and lead them down the wrong trail. And when you're "in the know" that's a lot of fun (imo at least)

    It's a win-win, you get feedback from some part of the community that aren't on official forums AND you get to protect the secrecy of the next expansion by blurring lines and throwing false leaks.

    That's just what an undercover Blizzard employee would say.

    This is my first "leak season". That's why my account is new. I've never posted on these forums, nor did I ever follow them, before 2022.
