I thought you stopped playing.


Completely irrelevant however the answer is no. I have many characters across many realms including more than one paladin.

Blizzard is a company well into the mature phase of the business life cycle. As you can see now to maximize profits they are trying to attracted lost market share back to the game and reduce the costs of development.

Whilst I do agree it would be standard social etiquette to update the letter to reflect new things each year from the customer point of view (which is what we are), from a business point of view its not a necessity it is more akin to added customer service. Maybe someone at blizzard could take 10 minutes out of their day each year to update this letter or maybe it is as they say, and because they are now a subsidiary told to "make money" they are stricter on budgeting actions. I've seen first hand large and small organizations inevitably go through this trend when the market is tapped and the only way to increase profit (to make it appear the business is still growing to add value to shareholders) is to reduce costs. Even simple things like this add up to the larger picture, and I'd personally prefer if any efforts they made were directed to finally giving warlocks green fire.

Regardless of what they had done, someone would have complained about something. In a sea of 10 million people only raging issues are heard like daily quests.

Just posting to say grats to Groot's parents. When he turns 8, for being loyal I'm sure he's going to give them something awesome, because that's how it's done.

True enough. I don't agree with people complaining about the item we received, that is unjustified in my book. However the letter is what disappoints me the most. Feels like someone gave me a 19th birthday card for my 21st or something. Even a simple card without specifically stating the age would of been more appropriate. I would be interested though to see just how much money it would cost for an employee to change a line of text in a template letter.

Another mouth-breather come to back up his rainbow buddy. He'll never learn if you keep holding his hand.

two people had commented before he had on this post disagreeing, and a total of 6, yet you just focus on him

I don't understand why you think you're entitled to something on the 8th anniversary. It's really just a nice bonus.


Are you dumb? It's the same thing as last year, and you most likely made a QQ post back then too I bet

If you think anything you have done is considered trolling well then you must be as misguided as you sound.

/thread

>It can't be that hard to make it a glyph, you can download a mod that makes all warlock fire green however only you can see it and it's technically against the ToS to use that mod.

So all in all if some guy no one has even heard of can make all warlock fire green, I don't see how hard it could be to change the spell ID to a colour that is green. And don't give me that bull!@#$ about it not existing because I've seen green versions of warlock spells from mobs during TBC. (This guy even went through the effort of making the fire on the fel pony green.)

TL;DR: QFT

The problem is not "an employee changing a line of text in a template letter". The immense amounts of bureaucracy that's involved in sending an official communication out to millions of customers is astonishing. The employee changing a line of text would've been subject to the line being cleared by his supervisors, and their supervisors, and then it comes back down from the top saying that it's not the right attitude that Blizzard wants to portray, and you need to change it, etc.

Sure hope my lady friend doesn't mind receiving the exact same gift I gave her last year for our anniversary.
I'm not obliged to give her anything though, but I thought I'd be a nice guy and give her something anyway. She'd better shower me with praise even though I'm a lazy !@#.
