This is a stating opinion as fact. Some folks don't like these avenues, so it makes them bad for them. Personally, I like them. In my opinion, the noise to information ratio is much lower and answers are clearer and more concise.
Most of us or alot of us dont want interaction and our concerns addressed on some so called other site , we want them addressed on the forum made specifically for the discussion of the game world of warcraft .
Again, stating personal opinion as fact and tossing the rest of us in your opinion as well. You have absolutely no way of knowing what "most of us or alot of us" want in regards to communications from Blizz, so please don't speak for us. Even in this thread, which is by no way or means remotely comprehensive, it's hardly "most" or even "alot" by my estimates.
There's a great chance Blizz doesn't' know either. But they see social communication avenues like Twitter and Reddit that they can use and in some ways are more free form than these forums and have greater controls at the same time. So they use them too.
Any where else is a waste of my time .
We want more interaction and questions answered on the wow forums . Not on fan sites we dont frequent , I guess that would make them safer though !
From what I've seen, this is the crux of the complaint. As I see it, more avenues are better. Do you get your real life news from one source?
One last question I would like to ask is why do people say Blizz comments in social media sites aren't "official" like the forums? In my mind, it's like saying talking to a Blizz employee by phone isn't official even though you just called the company, because you're talking over the phone company's lines.
If they're using a company account, it's as official as if it were on these forums.
