Blizzard Holiday Activity 2016-2017

General Discussion
Hey all!

As you are undoubtedly aware, Winter Veil is soon to come to Azeroth, bringing with it a season of good cheer and high spirits, as well as a time where we gather together with those who we hold closest to us - family, friends, and colleagues.

In the same spirit, winter is upon us, and we wanted to take this chance to share some notices on our activity throughout the remainder of the holiday season and on into the New Year.

  • There will be less Blizzard employee activity and engagement across most World of Warcraft forums, especially the PTR forums and General Discussion.
  • There will be reduced activity and engagement on World of Warcraft's social media, particularly notable is @WarcraftDevs, which will have reduced activity through to the new year.
  • Customer Support staff will still be hard at work during the holidays - if you need to contact Customer Support for any reason, you will be able to do so through the Blizzard Support site. Please take note that there will still be Support staff monitoring the forums and assisting with moderation, and our Customer Support forums will remain active through the holiday season!


It’s important to note that we will still be going over threads posted during the holidays when we return, so continue to share your thoughts and feedback while we’re away!

We’d like to thank everyone for their understanding as we step away from our keyboards and take time to travel and visit with our loved ones. We look forward to returning after the holidays in 2017, for what looks to be an amazing year for both Blizzard and World of Warcraft.

From all of us here at Blizzard: Happy holidays, happy New Year, and we will see you in 2017!
Have a good holiday!
Happy holidays and a great 2017 to you guys too!
Happy holidays, guys!

Will there not be a holiday sale for certain Blizzard titles this year?
Happy holidays to you guys, and hope the CS staff doesn't get overloaded during the holidays.
Idk how you can have significantly less...
I hope you all have a good Holiday Season and Happy New Year! I'm sure we will all be here waiting for your return after the first of the year.

I think anyone who is not a complete and total nematoad would expect that. Take care Ornyx and have a Merry Christmas or Winter Veil as the case may be. Ditto to Lore and everyone else. :-)
