Wasn't today the day of the big forum upgrade?

Like all things Blizzard these days, there has been little to no communication about what's going on.

Not that I put this anywhere near the same level as Allied Races/Warfronts/Diablo, but it's still silly to me that they haven't learned their lesson that even a little bit of communication can do a lot to prevent dumpster fires.


The real problem is that they just do not care at all. It is pathetic and sickening.

Ack. We already celebrated, swapped stories, some said goodbye... I don't wanna go through another 24 hours of that a week from now. Waaaaay too much chaos that disrupts the forums.


I know I know! I feel the same way. On the good side, it gives folks who might have been unaware, time to grab copies of their favorite stories, guides, posts, etc.

It can also give guide writers sometime to read up on the new forum features and design a new and improved guide. That is a small bit of silver lining.

Well, that's too bad. I guess that means another week or two of wild conspiracy theories about the new forums.


That part is frustrating but that is what GD does. This has been planned for over a year. Already came to OW, HotS, and was planned for HS before a small delay. It is coming to ALL the Blizzard forums. No recent news has anything to do with it.

It does not matter what we think of it. It WILL happen.

It did... this was the link: https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/breaking/22764995

now it goes no where.


This ^^^^ It was supposed to start at 8am Pacific or 11am Eastern. With the article removed I can only assume it got pushed back and we have to wait for an update about it.

Take away - enjoy the forums for now and assume sometime within this week or next they will still migrate.

Dope!

I do want to take a sec to say thanks to you though, Mirasol. I saw that you and Crepe were out in force yesterday trying to clear up misconceptions and inform people about how the new layout works. I appreciate that you guys were doing your best to help people understand what's going on.

So kudos to you two, and anyone else that was doing the same.
It's...

KAOS!

KAOS!


Of course, KAOS would be involved.

You see, the moment I suspected there was something wrong with these new forums, I immediately telephoned headquarters and I happen to know that at this very minute seven web engineers and four moderators are converging on this thread. Would you believe it? Seven.

Pretty sure it is not going to happen today. They removed the Maint notice for the forums. It will happen, but we just need to wait for them to tell us when.
Soooooo anytime now Blizzard...........

Exactly. Every single Blizzard forum is moving to the new format. It is just a matter of which day.
