    Question Colorful Beach Chair[s?] and Upgrade Midsummer event? (picture heavy thread, sry)

    When I saw the "Colorful Beach Chair" I assumed it's a Pride re-color of an existing item in the game, it's not? All I found was some fishing chair that don't come close...

    While the umbrella is ok, very summer-ish and not specific to a...movement

    the chair is a bit too political and the vast majority of people that don't participate in that...event, should have a regular chair. Puting in an irl flag, that would be like puting in the American flag of stars n stripes, I as not an American sure wouldn't want to have that.

    Isn't summer for everyone? More specifically, to all paying customers?

    Now I could be wrong there could be a similar chair, I just haven't come across it, or it is what "don't worry, u will get a similar chair in 2028!"

    Maybe Goblin, Murloc themed chair? Or fishing themed?

    There is a chair u get from nat, I think I'm revered...but it doesn't come close to the beach chair..

    there's even a "mushroom chair" which is just a smol little mushroom



    https://www.wowhead.com/item=70161/mushroom-chair

    in the game there are some Gobline beach chairs, not for players though





    since that beach chair is striped, well just make it white for example with blue or red stripes, maybe an orange umbrella, the ring floatie could have a murloc on it or something.



    could make any sort of color combinations, I mean if u have recolors for the beach clothes (Ensemble: Yellow Tropical Swimwear)







    speaking of floaties, why not make it for those who want to fish or just afk in one?



    Blizzard could just have gone dragon themed summer...since well, this is a dragon expansion...



    How about making it Troll Tiki themed? The possibilities are endless..Honestly, they should expand upon the midsummer event...



    threw in new quests, those turtles love to find new lore n treasures



    Do something with Stranglethorn Vale, just one of the coolest zones in the game...

    Do other games have beach chairs and beach/summer events?

    I am pretty sure that the concept of a rainbow and its colorpalette predate the pridemovement....so it IS a regular chair.

    I'm going to use this chair all the time just to make people like you mad. Because apparently you live in a Dr. Seuss book where there is a Grinch-like character who goes around making everything rainbow just to get at you. Maybe you should get out of your chair, go for a walk, get some fresh air.

    Ofc the colors predate that movement, but that is a flag on a chair and wowhead specifically name chair n other things after that movement..so, I suppose Blizzard does as well.

    Ofc I expected people to get defensive and not take into consideration that others, most, would want an alternative, or several.

    Did I ask for ur beach chair to be removed?

    Would you call it a "normal" chair and accept it if they would have just generically named it "rainbow chair"?

    Incels and homophobics started hate threads even before the event is in the game LOL.

    are you saying beach chairs only belong to you?

    Not at all. I'm saying why are you getting mad over a chair that has colorful stripes? You want a regular chair? We already have that in game. https://www.wowhead.com/item=86596/nats-fishing-chair

    You know as a straight male I have sat on roygbiv chairs irl even?!

    It's actually amazing how you are so triggered by this you think it's purely political and you can't use it? lol. Anyone can use it, it's only people like YOU making it political. The complete lack of awareness in this argument is astonishing.

    You have no idea what most people want. Are you going to make a thread every time a WoW item's color palette isn't to your liking? I'm not gay, and yet I have no problem with them adding pride themed items to the game. Your way of thinking is obsolete. This is 2024, not the dark ages.

    That chair is old and while yours is new and therefore looks much better, it even has a floatie.

    I see what you are doing, trying to get the thread closed. Well, I think we, the majority of paying customers, are entitle to have other versions of the beach chair and not make it exclusive to a few.

    It's in the nature of this forum to be...combative, I say I want other version of the chair, I didn't say your chair to be removed YET you panic and want to start a flame thread?

    You could just be "ok, u want more chairs, fine by me" but no

    Guess you're just going to have to use a rainbow chair if you want the floatie. What are you so scared about?

    The thread is going to be closed regardless because you knowingly made a stupid, inflammatory OP.

    Pretty sure this chair is for everyone to purchase.

    According to google rainbow is a symbol of many things:
    often a sign of hope, the beauty after the storm, a pot of gold and good fortune at the rainbow's end.
    Unless they will purpusely push it to the game as "we as Blizzard will support X IRL group of people in this fantasy world" for me it is just a colorful chair and i am super fine with it.

    @Ihavewaffles it seems you missed my relatively easy to answer question, so I try my luck again:

    Would you call it a "normal" chair and accept it if they would have just generically named it "rainbow chair"?

    the political flag n theme caters to a minority, which if its the only beach chair version made available, is a big middle finger to the majority of paying customers.

    asking for more chairs n not removing yours is inflamatory? You just admitted you want exclusive things for you only.

    You don't have to be a part of LGBTIQ+ to use a colorful chair. You're just talking nonsense at this point....

    Why do you think the majority of the playerbase gives 2 flying shits about the existence of a rainbow chair?
    Seems more like your own personal problem.

    And its not "exlusive to a few", the game won't open up a questionaire and ask you your pronouns and sexuality when you visit whatever vendor that sells it, anyone can go ahead and buy it or not.
