Blind players make up 0.000001% of the playerbase.
Why are they so entitled as to want their needs met, but not the other 99% who are sick and tired of multiboxers and bots?
The utter thoughtlessness and cruelty of people like you is just unbelievable.
I'm sure the effect of this change on blind players using this feature wasn't considered.
Let's hope Blizzard can do the right thing and come up with a solution that works appropriately for each type of player that uses /follow (bots, boxers, and the blind)
I have a friend who I think would benefit from doing a /follow on me in BGs.
He's not blind, he's not a multi-boxer, and he doesn't bot. He just really doesn't enjoy PvP whatsoever, but he wants that pretty violet proto-drake. That proto-drake requires a controversial achievement which requires him to achieve PvP objectives in several different BGs. Because he doesn't PvP, he has no clue about the layout of the BGs or how to do those objectives. As a result, when I took him into Alterac Valley to cap a tower he got lost on our side of the map and ended up getting slaughtered by the Horde assault group.
If I'd thought to have him do a /follow on me, he might've stood a chance at getting to the towers without needing to learn the BG.
I suppose it doesn't matter. He's since given up entirely on getting that achievement done.
Point is, a /follow might've helped him. And if there was a confirmation yes/no on my end to let him follow me - as has been suggested as a potential compromise - that would've worked just fine if he wanted to try it again with some help in the future. ^^
