    And it frustrates me since feedback is literally ignored and has been for years. Only the US kids get their voices heard and then in turn catered to when the EU market is just as big. I stopped giving feedback ever since I figured out it was like talking to a wall. Didn't matter how technical or methodical you were, you had to get someone on the US forums to post it for you to even get a response.

    Like when they put COD on the launcher. BattleNet was down for days and you could not get into any of the other games at all.

    This was basically my thought. Similar to the Communities feature in BFA, Blizz is once again very late to the party here. Global WoW (and by extension, other Bnet-linked) communities have been a thing on other platforms for years now.

    im sorry but OW shouldnt be Crossplay...if you've played the PC and console versions it's a different game on PC. It's faster and more twitchy...had a friend who played it religiously on console and was baffled by how much faster it played on PC.

    So Battle.net is global, except in China. Blizzard, I don't think you know what global means if China is excluded. Global means everyone. Not everyone except 1/6 of the planet.

    I didn't realize English comprehension was this bad, but it shows that Blizzard needs to read the dictionary.

    Blizzard would be more than happy to include China, except China doesn't want to be included. They have their own internet and firewall and censorship and government schemes that make it impossible to include China alongside the rest of the world.

    Can’t let the outside world let them know about the real world

    Then Blizzard shouldn't be calling this global, since that's a falsehood.

    *excluding China.

    So much for shouting "Free Hong Kong" or "Taiwan is a country."

    ah ok. missed that.

    but since this was not the point, i adjust my question and ask it again:

    does this mean we see also WoW retail US players in EU PUG tool soon?

    doesnt the second part of the blue post saying it moves, also in wow, in such directions ?

    when battle.net is now able to connect i.e. US playerbase with EU playerbase, do that affect also the possibility of wow characters ?

    i dont know their tech behind (thats why i am asking). but as i understand stuff they said in the past (i.e. engineering panels on Blizzcons) it seems that not much of the „see other chars of other realms“ is in the wow engine code and most of that tech is done via battle.net cloud stuff etc. Means: you dont have to rewrite the half wow engine to enable this feature, since most of the tech resides in the battle.net code. IF it is so. maybe someone knows more about that ?

    Aren't all of Blizzard's games operated by a different publisher in China?

    The internet is a global thing even if some countries do not have it or limit it.

    If you really think it’s purely Blizzard’s doing then you’re obviously quite ignorant to China/CCP.

    There’s no way in hell that a country with already restricted access is going to give people the freedom to discuss freely on a platform they have zero control over.

    will not happens, why ? because token in wow are region sided, i know because i play on europe with a french version in quebec canada, i cant buy a token because my money is canadian and europpe token is euro

    unless they decide to make all money global, it will never happen

    oh and by the way they make it global because activision want all their game on it too if you think that this decision is only because of blizzard and overwatch, i have news for ya

    I'm well are of what goes on under the CCP. My issue with the misuse of terminology. Blizzard shouldn't be calling this "global" when it isn't global.

    This is the definition of global from dictionary.com:

    adjective
    pertaining to the whole world; worldwide; universal:
    the dream of global peace.

    So nope, you're not right. Unless every country has access to internet, then the internet isn't global, as per the definition of words.

    Of course the internet is global. By your strict interpretation then nothing can be global as there is hardly anything that every single person on the planet has access to. And yet that word has be defined long before anything global could actually occur. It just show the lengths you are going to in order to hate on a company for no good reason.

    Its so much more than keyboard and mouse. Theres a direct correlation to fps and latency. Theyre inversely proportional. Higher fps = lower latency and vice versa. If you had two equally skilled controller players, one on a properly tuned PC and one on console, the PC player has an automatic advantage. This is not even mentioning the differences between higher screen refresh rates.
    Let's look at the test results. You are a horrible person. It says right here, you're a horrible person. We weren't even testing that. Don't let the horrible person thing get you down though. Science justified your parents choice to abandon you.

    I didn't realize using the correct definition of words was "strict interpretation."

    The strict interpretation is coming from you saying it has to be available to every single person on the planet in order for it to be labeled as global. That means nothing is global.

    It's global in terms of Battle Net, not the actual damn planet. All of their Bnet services have become global, it's really not hard to understand why.

    I bet you're the kind of guy who'd argue over the colour of the sky tbh.
