The level of discourse on their own forums is generally useless for this, never mind fan sites like this one which apparently is full of bitter-enders who can't let go of the game.

    It's 100% non-intuitive that they would go to the trouble of setting this up simply to have everyone praise them for everything. They don't need to do that.

    That doesn't mean they will be changing a lot of things but it makes sense to try and get more useful feedback than "X is great" or "X is terrible" with zero explanation of why they think that.
    They could care less what people have to say about anything that contradicts their ideas. We can just look at all the well thought out posts about the Cov's back in Alpha an then Beta and then 9.0 and then 9.0.5 and then in 9.1 (an every PTR in between) that was ignored and brushed off until the pop plummeted.

    In the end I doubt anything will come of this, the forum can light up with why A an B in 9.2 are completely broken and the issue will barely be discussed and never addressed til long after the fact.

    Sunk Cost Fallacy is a hard trap to break out of, especially when Blizz uses FOMO promos such as the "free" in-store mounts that are tied to a 6-month commitment to perpetuate the trap .

    Not sure how people ignored this; It pretty much summarizes the current state of things. WoW went too hardcore; Players got mad. Then they left and joined in FF14. The cultural differences in the game have proven that most casuals want a friendly non-competitive environment to game in peace with. That's just the truth of the matter.

    WoW doesn't offer in-game moderation so when a M+ group flops people can freely harass others based on add-ons. WoW's endgame is only based on "competitive" play, which is fine for some, but most actually pass on that (Newsflash: Real life is competitive enough, I don't want my freetime turning into how I am at work.)

    WoW bases it's entire game around it's endgame and it rushed players into a competitive environment against their own wishes.

    The sad truth of the matter is Acti-Blizz is always going to keep a tight lid on their sub numbers. But lets be real; if they were to be honest we'd all know they'd say that the accounts they lose consistently every expansion are from casual players.

    to be fair that pathfinder thread isn't all over the board. Seems the majority want it taken away and return to what flying was originally, and literally like 2 nay sayers versus 13.

    Yea good luck telling WOW "casuals" to wait for the next patch to even start gearing from a previous raid gear.

    Here's a good trick, farm Korthia for a heroic ilvl, buy 1 unique Mythic ilvl crafted BOE, buy 2 Mythic BOE, and then buy 1 max Ilvl Legendary (2 for next patch). Congrats you now have enough ilvl to do M+23 without ever stepping into a raid.

    You don't even have to wait for the next patch to do it, unlike Final Fantasy.

    WOW gearing is the most accessible out of other MMO, the problem is the player base is trying to find a fulfillment out of it.

    From being disrespectful towards the feedback to calling it free for all bitch session is plainly disgusting.

    I think it's the combination of how FF14 does gear, and how the SE team actually police behavior that's kept the casual WoW players happy there. No one wants to live in a libertarian hell hole.

    not really, there are people who want it for gold on lvl cap, there are people who want pathfinder but not timegated to next patch, there are people who want pathfinder but no rep grind, there are people who want it how it is, there are people who dont want flying at all... and thats just the "major" groups

    This is pretty much the case. Once something is made they dont remove it even if its such a nightmare they can't get it to work they refuse to... azerite armor is the best example of this they changed the system almost entirely in the last few months because they couldn't get it to work and still jammed it in. I would argue conduits got the same treatment just made them extremely weak to offset them not fitting into the game.

    I mean it shoukd be given blizzards success record...

    They need to start listening to people who understand the game as they clearly have lost touch less we have another " muh meaningful choices" fucking up the game like bfa, sl, and honest so woukd argue artifact trees from legion.

    It's not about instant gratifications, it's about having something worthwhile to work towards.

    Devs just dont work well with feedback. Best recent example the R1 m+ titles - people asked for rewards, instead of something prestigious, more than 1000 people get the same "R1" title. Compare it to the original R1 title from pvp when you actually had to be the rank 1. Dunno what filter all the feedback goes through that we end up with such garbage results.

    All I ever wanted was the truth. Remember those words as you read the ones that follow. I never set out to topple my father's kingdom of lies from a sense of misplaced pride. I never wanted to bleed the species to its marrow, reaving half the galaxy clean of human life in this bitter crusade. I never desired any of this, though I know the reasons for which it must be done. But all I ever wanted was the truth.

    They kicked a racist which is good and ironically you're right in that it does show that they care about the game. You just meant to have a different point than the one you made.

    He made several threads about various topics.
    THIS is one of them and you can find MORE when you go to general WoWC forum.
    It is not like this person is negative or hateful against the game.
    Personally i find him as one of a few members of this Council with valid and reasonable points towards making the game better.
    They do not care and kicked him from being part of it for random screenshot on random discord as 'he defended racists'.
    That is how current devs care about the game and community feedback.

    You know only half part of the story... the part you just want to believe is the only true.
    Now check the other one.

    To be honest it's existence is a total failure. You open applications to glorify a few people to what exactly? Have louder voices?

    All they need to do is hire someone capable of communicating what happens on the forums to the dev team.
    It doesn't take a genius to look at the forums for a few weeks and go to the devs and say "Hey idiots, most people have been sick of these systems for the past few years and almost everyone has clearly expressed a long time ago that if you do a redemption story for Sylvanas you're morons.

    This community council is just a desperation bullshit attempt at PR and nothing more. They already know what's wrong but they need the treadmill running and won't let it go.

    See your mistake is assuming that people posting on the forums represent the majority of the active playerbase. They never have and they never will. That doesn't mean good points arent brought up but Blizzard listened to the online vocal minority for Cataclysm end game and we all know what a shit show that turned into as a result.

    So you say that a few people that have applied to write up in green text represent the players better? Okay ... that definitely makes sense.

    I think it's more a desperate internal thing. Some exec went "you guys don't understand what the players want; figure it out" and they put together a mostly useless thing to check that box. I don't think it's aimed at players.
