Ion on Reddit
First of all, when did we stop using our cool names? Ghostcrawler was a great name with several implied meanings, was he sneaking around and looking over the game data or something? Well, Watcher and WatcherDev is now simply Ion.
I don’t know the why, I’ve never seen Blizzard respond so thoroughly to the player’s concerns. It doesn’t feel like the game is a mess and the peasants are at the gates with torches.
They did something called an “AMA”. Reddit Battle for Azeroth AMA with Ion Hazzikostas is the coverage from Wowhead. It is an amazing read-through to see the responses.
The coverage from MMO Champs is Reddit AMA with Ion Hazzikostas. This reporting is interesting because they included the questions and we all have some of these questions like why was the Beta feedback ignored and why is a class ignored and in the basement.
I’ve read it and will go over it again, we’d hate to lose this as new posts will soon bury it in the past. If I were to conclude anything it would be that it “feels” like the designers are over-whelmed with this new expansion release. By golly, it IS a big game!
Finally, this has nothing to do with anything. I’m in the habit now of taking the leap to the rope ladder in Boralus up to the mission table instead of zig-zagging up the ramp. It’s fun to jump!
