Blizzard Holiday Activity 2017-2018

General Discussion
Hey all!

Another year has flown by, and now the heroes of Azeroth are rushing from their footholds on Argus into Antorus to bring an end to the Burning Legion.

But back on Azeroth, the seasons are changing and Winter Veil is nearly here. Those old Azerothian traditions of good cheer and high spirits are starting to captivate us as we move into a colder time of year; a season where we gather together around the hearth with those who we hold closest to us - our family, friends, and colleagues.

In the same spirit, winter is nearly upon us here at Blizzard, and with it we wanted to share some notes on what you can expect from us over the next month and into the new year, especially during the holidays.

  • There will be less Blizzard employee activity across most World of Warcraft forums, especially normal Community Manager activity in General Discussion.
  • There will be reduced activity on World of Warcraft's social media platforms.
  • 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!

I'd like to remind you, and I think it's an important note, that discussions will still be monitored throughout the holidays, so please continue to share your feedback and take part in discussions while we're away!

As always, we’d like to thank everyone for their understanding as many of us 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 2018, for what looks to be an epic year for World of Warcraft.

From all of us here at Blizzard Entertainment: Happy holidays, happy New Year, and we will see you in 2018!
Please get plenty of rest you all earned it with the content this year.
I hope you all have a good holiday but I hope you at least have at least some people monitoring the PTR forums and posting there over the next month still.
Hope you enjoy your time over the holidays~
Have a great holiday Blizz! \o/

May all your gifts be titanforged!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! So long, and thanks for all the fish!
A legendary in the winter veil presents would be awesome :

Seriously though, enjoy the holidays!
Happy holidays blizzard! Super excited for what to come, and hope you guys have plenty rest and spend lots of time with family!
Happy Holidays. Thank you all so much for what you do. We might be salty sometimes, but overall we're a group that loves the game and those who moderate our Forum Experience. Thank you CMs!
They way your team hasn’t responded to Havoc DH T21 complaints I feel your community response team has been on holiday leave for at least a few patches.
Seems a bit early for this. Two weeks before christmas? Sure...but Blizzard takes december off every year? That's 1/12 total time. lol
Eh, I'm not going to question how a successful company chooses to run their business. Happy holidays everyone!

Am I the only one that would appreciate you guys actually increasing this before announcing that it's going to be decreased?



P.S:
Yes I know this is a regular thing, I've been here a long time.
Yes I also know they have lives too. Really.
Dang, I read topic and thought this was a post about Winter Veil and stuff.
Happy holidays Blizzard! We love you guys/gals, and thank you so much for your hard work over this past year!

Regards,

Blightblade
Wish I could get a month off at my job.
