I am very much happy with the simplified look we have right now. Very easy on the eyes unlike that overcluttered mess which is the OW forums.

honestly as long as i can post on separate characters from armory I'll be fine.

I like to post questions on the character i have a question on.


Same here. I mostly post on this character but I like to post on different characters if it's relevant to me.
RIP, my just-reached 20k post count.

/pours one out
Operation "scrub the forums" engaged.

Why every company want their Forums to look like Reddit. I hate that layout.


Same.

I don't get what's bad about having a thread in chronological order?

You know, like how conversations work.
My post count will reset to zero! No!!!!!
When was the last wipe? Pretty sure I've had more than 400 odd posts since vanilla
Thanks for posting this, I was unaware of the upcoming change.

Definitely a better format.

How long till the google search of ‘wow forums’ takes you to the right place though :)

If they don't change the URL, no time at all.

Is there any reason why they wouldn't keep the same one?

I hope I'm popular enough to get to post .gifs. D:

They will be just like this forum with the most recent threads at the top, or ones most recently commented on. They are not sorted by popularity.

Ridiculous.

It may make sense for all their F2P garbage but WoW requires an active sub to post. That nonsense has no place here.
I've been on the overwatch forums, they're still horribly outdated

The last time I visited the Overwatch forums it definitely wasn't simple chronological order, or at least was a little bit visually confusing. It certainly wasn't as easy to read as these forums are.
Will we get downvoting back?
I just looked at OW forums. I don't care for the layout.
what about server forums

"We’ve removed the “thumbs down” button and replaced it with a flagging system with multiple options."

So that's a no. :/

Same here. The layout sucks.

Nope. I like it personally, but they are not giving it back to us.

Everything should change over. There may also be some forums that are added or removed. We shall have to see what we get when they come back up.
