Player becomes Blizzard President for a week

General Discussion
That....

Was....

Quite possibly the greatest thing I have ever seen in my entire life.

THIS THREAD NEEDS MORE DRAGONS!!!
So you're saying even some of the best players in the game aren't informed enough to change a few things for the better or might, at the very least, bring a new fresh prospective into the office?

Maybe bring light to a few issues that have been unaddressed on the forums?


Issues on the forums are best left unaddressed. The ideas that float through here (YOURS IS A GOOD EXAMPLE) are so stupid they cause cancer.


Most of the things I read on the forums are actually great ideas! Some aren't, and mine not be one of them, but from where I stand my idea was more of an attempt to enjoy a discussion re ways to implement some changes that more players would find enjoyable.

Idk if you've checked out the atvi stock lately, but clearly things arent going too well in the section of the company, comparatively.

Your welcome. ^_^

I'd ban the account of anyone that's ever made a forum post about making Vanilla/TBC servers.

I'm reminded of a line from the Discworld novels, where Lord Vetinari (the tyrant ruler of Ankh-Morpork) points out that a nearby town implemented democracy, just to have everyone vote to no longer pay taxes.


...now I want to have Death from Discworld to be in-game, good going.

Ohgodyes, next time you die instead of the spirit healer you get...

^This, unfortunately.

Also, I believe some of the devs, and definitely the mods do in fact play the game.

Should also be noted that a lot of things have changed for the better, they just haven't changed to suit your personal opinion.


That's not entirely true, but thank you for attempting to s peak on my behalf.


No, that is entirely true. Your opinion is that WoW has changed for the worse, as stated i your first post. At the very least you are saying they are bad now, and have always been bad.

My opinion is that things have gotten better, and I like them.

That's how opinions work.

That would be epic.
I get the feeling sometimes that the people who create the game don't actually play, because if they did, don't you think a lot of things would change for the better?

Imo Blizzard should allow a player, voted in by his peers, the opportunity to make a days worth of decisions to he improve the game from a players perspective, in place of what you business type folks make for us everyday.

Would be a great pub stunt and in the same breath, a few key issues might be resolved that current high ranking CE's at Blizz currently overlook.

Participants would be able to post a small petition and voting could take place on the forums.

Thought?


Yes they play WOW. No players should never be allowed to vote for any changes. Only a very small percentage of players will ever visit the forums. And even fewer will make visiting the forums a habit.

Nothing remotely close to good would come of this if it was even a possibility.

But congratulations on posting something that likely made everyone at Blizzard chuckle.
"Let the fans take over. They always say they have the best ideas."

"DRAGONS! LOADS OF DRAGONS ALL OVER THE PLACE!"
lol. I could imagine the grief from that, would be funny.

"This week alliance only have 100 hp max when in a BG or Arena.. FOR THE HORDE!"
"Hunter can duel wield bows and rifles!"
"Pallies get 200% damage to enemies while bubbled, bubble last 5 minutes."
"Just type where you want to go. /Org.. POOF, in org. /SW.. POOF, in sw."
"New /Console Style cheat codes implemented."
