    Idk, i would definitely say that random passive aggressive comments about something being "funny" or not is definitely negative.

    OP found something interesting and posted about it.
    Then you come along with your unnecessary "whAtS sO ''''FUUnNy!??1!''''' " posts, only to get defensive when people call you out on it.

    If you don't find this interesting, that's completely fine.
    But don't be a fucking dick about it.

    Typical that a thread detailing a reasonably unusual event in game would devolve into semantic arguments about the definition of 'funny.' At least in the U.S. there's a perfectly acceptable use of the word 'funny' to describe something out-of-the-ordinary. So let's not be grammar experts (which is against the site rules anyway).

    Yeah, it's unusual. Most devs play anonymously for obvious reasons. When they play they want to play, not be hunted down by amateur developers who know precisely how the game should be fixed, never mind the abusers who would gather.

    He's a great dude, he streams regularly on Twitch and tweets all kinds of things regarding games often, even talks about non Blizzard games. Couldn't be happier with their choice in promoting him, genuinely feel like he's one of the reasons why I've regained hope for the future of Blizzard & WoW.

    Isn't armchair moderating threads also against the rules? Also, did it also annoy you this horribly to see users engaged in conversations with strangers' threads, on a forum, a couple years back? Because that would explain a lot.

    And I guess that I can also bypass the top portion of my comment by trying to bring back the conversation into topic.
    While it's unusual, more should do it, even if just for the look it gives. I'm sure some developers and other members of the team are able to endure some abuse - just like the entire fuck lot of us - in order to give a better look to the game they (like to?) develop and work in (and want to see succeed have contribute to it's good PR?).

    You summed up my own thoughts when going through this thread.

    My own concern as a player is that this guy really seems to enjoy high-end mythic+ when to me it's one of the worst parts of the game right now.
    Pro-European Union / Pro-Russia / Pro-China
    The EU needs to learn to be more tolerant of conservative and religious communities. It needs to learn to respect cultural freedom and stop trying to force it's own narrow-minded liberal views on the world. It is none of europe's concerns how other nations or even it's own member-nations deal with their own problems. "My ancestors smile upon me. Can you say the same?"

    https://www.reddit.com/r/wow/comment...t_a_celebrity/





    His character in-game is "Qwik" and he also posts on the WoW Reddit to. Click on the URL to see his comment a couple of replies down.


    I'm not familiar with Ybarra myself. At first I thought he was some random Activision employee/executive who was appointed, and not originally part of the Blizzard portion of the company. Or is he?


    Anyway, kind of nice knowing he actually plays the game and engages with the community.

    The title of the WoW Reddit thread is "I met a celebrity" and Ybarra's reply on the thread was:
    IF its really true, i be more on the „thx god, at least their president plays their fukin game“ train. since he seems to has 247 ilvl and 2.4k m+ score (and not just doing some quick looks into LFR), at least the Co CEO using their own product.

    to me this is good news, since SL and the last 3-4 years of descissions, looked like no one of the wow team play their own game or using their own product.

    hopefully…

    my expectations are already waaaay lower than yours. i just get hope out of it, that even SOMEONE in that company use their own product.

    Causal reminder he is still not a WoW director.

    I would say the more common meme was always that they only play certain classes which they tend to favor in terms of pvp or pve balance which was semi confirmed by Ghostcrawler after he left Bliz.

    But I don't envy the guy having his char exposed. All kind of tards would be whispering him 24/7.

    Guess I'm just confused by your statement. You're concerned for his characters exposure because of a screenshot when he now streams on twitch? It's just a given. Wouldn't worry about it and I'm sure he doesn't care much.

    Ye well, no one likes when random mongs whisper you shit like "when will you remove LFR?" or "why the fk did you nerf my class???".

    It's great to have someone that high up that actually plays the game seriously. Wonder if that's part of the reason we're getting the full ripcord in 9.1.5.

    Lol no. These decisions are pre-planned and made to sustain MAU's. Also, they are made by Ion and his team.

    I don't think my take was off at all. The OP is actively defending why he finds it funny so it's more than just looking into a topic title. It's okay to disagree and I'm not talking down on anyone who thinks it's funny because people have the right to feel however they want. I also thought it was a pretty feelsgoodman moment too and I want to highlight that because I'm personally not a fan of people who are overly negative just for the sake of negativity.
