    Nice burner.

    Some of the OGs are the reason for the problems in the game
    because if we use your reasoning of "the old guys are leaving so the quality will be effected" and compare it to how many QoL changes and good changes have been made since the first guys have been kicked then wouldnt that mean they are holding the game back??

    Devs leaving games is a fairly common occurrence, my understanding. Going somewhere else after being there for about a decade is not that crazy, but every time a dev leaves it's the end of the game, and it doesn't even matter the game. Bonus points when the doomsayer also makes it political.

    Double bonus points if it is a CM and not a developer. Wonder who will be the new voice for Survival Guides now.

    So the book comes out and the final chapter on the same day. I'm willing to bet there is going to be something leading us into the next expansion that happens. Well besides the fact that Zoval drilled into the planet and was sucking the life out of it.

    The vocal majority expected a big reveal in the jailer cinematic while some tried to argue that no boss cinematic teased a cinematic or fundamentally changed the upcoming story. Yes it was a bad cinematic but not suprising we won't got anything out of it.
    But i mean you're not wrong. Wows lore is jumping from one cliffhanger to the next so this chapter won't change that.

    I personally think it mostly deals with sylvanas and tyrande (and hopefully with the nightelfs). A friend of mine suggested that judgement refers to the first ones appearing and judging their creation like in the eternals which would be funny.

    So more bard lore in this already heavily music-themed patch. The synthesis mount called Serenade plays music when you mount up or /mountspecial and has little musical notes coming off the model. Maybe the new class will be a First Ones style tech-bard?

Especially, coincidentally mind you, on the same day as the Sylvanas novel?!

    Additionally, this would be a great way to set up 9.2.5 PTR AND the pending new expansion announcement on the 19th of April.

    So Moruzond sent the isles forward or back in time or something?

    I know you are just joking around and probably trying to lead everyone on, but the constant questions is kinda blizz employee sussy.

    There's just too much smoke for there to not be some kind of Revamp or expansion set in familiar Azeroth locales. It doesn't have to necessarily be a revamp, but it's for sure something more down to earth.

    Wow, you must be very insecure when you feel attacked by diversity. Poor you, you have my compassion.

    I don't know who started this rumor that it epilogue was moved to 9.2.5 PTR. Funny enough, people that I asked were pretty certain about it, yet no one gave me a source beside Danuser quote that they will hide it. But it simple didn't make any sense - releasing 9.2 story in March, then new expansion on April then last short SL chapter in ~June? No one will care about SL story at this point, we will all talk about 10.0.

    9.2.5 will be just system patch, no point to continue SL story because no one cares, no point to start 10.0 story before pre-patch. I doubt they will wait for 'empty' week to start PTR, but if they will 5th April doesn't have anything (29th March epilogue, 12th April creation catalyst).

    Why? Because he actually had the balls to call out the toxic as fuck playerbase?

    Are you projecting perhaps?

    The rumour started when Judgment was removed from the achievement to complete all 9.2 quests.
    The world revamp dream will never die!

    Why are you guys sad Lore left Blizzard? Its super good news actually. The whole "Blizzard doesn't listen to feedback" thing? That was all him. Interaction with the community has been non-existant since he became more prominent. Lately we've been seeing more communication and now he leaves. Not a coincidence. It is probably his replacements actually doing what they are supposed to do.
    I will not reply to posts that are non-constructive or contain flaming and/or trolling.

    Can we stop shitting and putting all the blame on individual employees?
    No, josh - a single CM, is not responsible for the entirety of Blizzards shitty management issues.
