    MMOC should require character linked to account

    Hey guys. Anyone else think MMOC should require that you link your character to your profile to post in the WoW section? Seen a lot of people posting about shadowlands but then come to find out they don't even play. Or they talk about specific content they've never even done. I think it would really help to know who to take actual advice from. Would add some weight to their opinions.

    The official forums are ------> that way.

    No, I do not think that.

    White knights now coming up with more convoluted ways to protect their dearest Blizzy.

    You can quite literally see everything you need to know about this game right now by watching a stream for an hour.

    The corporation that made me believe I was part of the culture is under attack. Defenders of the icy storm from the north, Blizzard, unite!

    No, it shouldn't.

    Nope. Not today, Galvatron. Nor tomorrow. Or the day after.

    There's no reason whatsoever to require this.

    Go get unbanned on the forums if you want that.

    I fully agree!

    The astronomy forum I'm member of also requires you to be an active astronaut to be able to post something.

    Plenty of people post for other video games or even for non-gaming forums here, so, no.

    Wouldn't this just cause people to dismiss good points and reasoning on the basis of character progression? You'd just invite a new level of toxicity to the Forums. Gatekeeping discussion away from people, even if they don't know what they're talking about, means it becomes more of an echo chamber - there's a lot less ideas that'll be thrown around that you might not have heard otherwise.

    For better, and for worse, but if you think WoW's failings is purely because people can't differentiate the difference between a good idea and a bad idea without knowing how experienced a player is, doesn't that say something about the judgment of being able to take the right advice and less about the people offering up ideas? Good ideas can come from less experienced people, too, and bad ideas can come from more experienced people as well.

    My apologies. While your idea sounds good in the official view - and could be interesting to see people's characters but, it is not good on user levels. People can discuss and join discussions about World of Warcraft as much as they wish without having to show credentials for still playing.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    I just assume that what everyone says online is nonsense.

    Worked for me for the past 20 years.
    That is not dead which can eternal lie,
    and with strange Aeons even Death may die.

    You don't have to clear <x> thing to be able to point out it's bad. Opinions do not require qualifications; I think golf is probably one of the most boring sports on Earth despite having never played it in my life.

    Sounds like you're one of the folks who need to seek validation from others in everything you do.

    NO WAY...

    I will refuse to link ANYTHING to my Blizzard account.
    Fact (because I say so): TBC > Cata > Legion > ShaLa > MoP > BfA > WoD = WotLK

    Oh definitely. Watching a stream is basically the same as playing the game.

    If you watch the stream well enough, you can consider yourself a top player.

    Aa for the OP ... people will just link a lvl 1 alt.
