Brace yourself. People with no marketing knowledge will unleash their "V for vendetta" mentality soon.
If they continue working on their mobile projects I am afraid that EW theory will develop new exciting previously unseen corrective patterns that can reach negative values! Can't wait :).Patch 8.3:- Worgens can now properly date opposing faction - You can now login into the game by using your tinder account credentials- Priests Smite ability can no longer be used against bosses- "Pet Battles - Pathfinder Part 4 & 5" are now a requirement to enter "Party with N'zoth" raid on Mythic Difficulty.- Headstart for US guilds has been increased by another 24 hours and EU servers will now crash randomly when last boss of the tier has below 10% health. This is to maintain spirit of fair competition.- "Method" guild has been permanently suspended for abusing in-game mechanic by interrupting Water Elemental casts when "Limit" was still wiping on Opulence.- Undead models has been updated to look more cute- Size of the group for Mythic difficulty raids has been reduced to 19 players for non-US regions- "Hello Kitty" backpack can now be used properly on non-rated battlegrounds- Database of offensive words has been updated to accomodate the changes- Achievements window has brand new look! be sure to check it out- Paladin's bubble duration has been increased to 4 minutes in PvP- Horde players will now have fatigue bar present for as long as they remain in combat during battlegrounds and arenas- Troll racials duration has been increased by 121.76%- 14 invisible bunnies has been added to Boralus Harbor and that Horde capital (we don't remember how our fired colleagues named it because we play Alliance).- Karazhan Crypt has been decorated with flowers- Arathi Basin has been removed from the game because we would like to reduce the number of battlegrounds that have objects with wheels attached- Characters removed from someone's friends list now receive "Divorced" debuff that decreases amount of "love" they generate by 1 + 14% *
Starcraft Ghost confirmed! HELL YEAH BOIS
Say it with me now F*** Activision
Can't believe they let go of Ythisens.....the one CM that responded to General Discussion on a regular basis.....
So so glad I got rid of my shares last year...........When the chase for greater profits is at the cost of customer satisfaction, then its clear the ideology is no longer credible.I'll keep playing, but I'll no longer invest.
I know you are taking the piss, but I would be all for these changes
It's appallingly typical. The bosses who sit in an office all day thinking about the pecking order and whose gluteous maximus to kiss to keep their jobs get to stay while the grunts doing the work get a "so-long-don't-let-the-door-hit-you-on-the-way-out". If some mucky-muck gets a $15 million bonus just for coming to work at Blizzard on his first day, could that not have saved the jobs of some of those folks who now need to find ways to feed themselves and/or their families? We who play WoW have long known that Blizzard pays more attention to their accounting department than to the people who play the game. I guess it's now true that they have little regard for their employees too.
Yep this is how the Americans work, best results ever and they lay people off because some fat cats didn't rich enough, not cool. Good luck to those laid off, wish you all the best.
I feel like this is more about greed at the top end than it is about making better content. I thought the American dream was to become successful....I didn't know it included stomping on hundreds of people to get there. I like playing wow, I don't care about how people make it out to be terrible... I find ways to make it fun....However do I really want to support a company that wants to give bonuses to top end while the people that help keep the community together was sent packing? This is becoming a moral issue for me. Yes they all get a severance packages but that's not the point. If this restructuring is to bring better content for us...I hope it is breathtaking. The extra devs are a good sign so I expect them to have content that we don't have to be nickel and dimed for...like store mounts. I paid a lot of money in my time to this company. I'm not spending money on store mounts and loot boxes. It's not fair to have a sub and have to pay for these things.
Do I feel bad for the people being released, yes. However, have you read the entire release. They are releasing about 8% of support staff and later they state they are increasing development staff by 20%. Which is what everyone has been requesting, more development! So keep in mind why sad for the 8% support areas, Activision Blizzard is increasing overall staff by 12% (20% development increase minus the 8% support release) by the end of 2019. They already know 2019 fiscally will most likely be a negative growth year with no new releases or major content releases, this restructuring makes sense.
they want e-sports, killed HGC...Blizzard, dear blizzard... mark my words, you can set the standard.When are you gonna...Just like wow gold, sometime you need to spend loads(5 million ah mount)You expect us to do it, we want you to do it
