Erratic behavior by Blizzard on the forums

General Discussion
Anyone else notice that Blizzard only starts replying to people on the forums when the community starts to become negative. The latest batch of Blizzard activity must have been some PR stunt in preparation for LOTV. But it seems like they ran our of funds and the blue font went away.

It is too bad really. Other game companies openly interact with their community on their forums. Blizzard needs to understand that this SC2 franchise is a collaborative process. The more they work with us, the better their game will be. After all we are the ones that pay for and play their games.
What are they supposed to say if the forums were nothing but positive? "Thanks, we appreciate it"?

You kind of missed the point

... thats exactly what we do see in a lot of cases. I see blizzard going in saying "Great thread" or posting something thats irrelevant to the game just as often as I see them replying to balance complaints
Well. No. It's hiring season. That's why you saw the flurry of activity- a lot of the HR people are getting their work done right now. Probably because some window for taxes had just passed and they can now hire people without having to worry about impending issuance of a W2 and having to pay taxes on the person when they haven't gotten any value out of the person yet.

That, and the WCS Season 1 grand finals, the GSL season 1 grand finals were bound to inspire a flurry of activities on the forums- and they did.

So it was kind of a bunch of reasons all at once.

They are too busy playing Heroes of the Storm.

I like playing Hearth of the stone as well! Not as much as Heart of the swarm though.

Oh and I actually like these forums. Idk why but I like them :D. I like how you can post a silly thread occasionally and everything isn't super strict. Not that these forums couldn't use a little more strictness but hey I shouldn't be the one talking.

I have not noticed that. I've seen Psione posting on a lot of threads, willy-nilly.
I've noticed they've started to delete a lot of harmless threads.
