There you have it, no April fools joke because they wanted to work on real content.

Also, I like the background.
WHOA WHOA STOP THE PRESSES!! They're working on actual content? MADNESS!!!
A bitter part of me thinks more content=more dailies. But that probably isn't true. I'm sure the SoO and such is gonna be amazing and put other raids to shame.
It's a conspiracy!
They couldn't at least leave Crabby up all day and put out some patch notes? :/

Oh, it probably is. And honestly, if they can't take the time to write up a simple joke, it's not because they don't have the "resources" (/eyeroll) to spare, it's because they just don't care.
MORE DAILIES MUST BE PRODUCED!
I guess they werent working on real content every year before this one.
It must take too much development time to create a fake web article with photoshopped images.
Real content?

You mean more dailies?

April Fool's joke would have been better.


I like Dailies. Actual Content is better then an April's Fool's Joke. You people are impossible to please.

Wrong, it's because people like you are near impossible. It's not because they don't care.

The patchnotes are always the best part too. I keep waiting for them to leave the shaman section blank one year.

This explains ToC.

Shoot, what was the name of that instance they made for April Fool's a few years ago? The one where it was pitch black? I'm pretty sure some work went into that.
With the amount of $$$ Blizzard (activison/vivendi) makes they should be giving us Content and April fools jokes.

Idk the numbers of subs lately but say 7mil.

7mil times 15$ a month is $105,000,000 monthly, thats 1.26 billion dollars a year.

That's more than enough money to hire some people to do damn near anything, armor dyes, more 5 mans, whatever.

that would be 31,000 employees making what I do annually.
"We're working on more content."

PTR change patch notes go up the day after with said content.

The WoW community: "IT CLEARLY MEANS MORE DAILIES!"

Seriously, if they HAD done something it would be: "Well they're wasting resource development on jokes!" and since they didn't do anything for that reason it means more complaining.

Damned if they do, damned if they don't.
Seems like many of their previous April Fools offerings have not been all that "development intensive".

Seems like something someone hashed out over a few hours. While keeping a friendly connection to the community.

Seems to me that sorta of thing is not important anymore. Kinda sad really. Both in their need to excuse it. And distance themselves further from the community that ACTUALLY KEEPS THEM WORKING.

But I am sure Activision tightening the belt around Blizzards spending. To increase/milk whatever they can out of their aging Flagship game. They really had little choice perhaps.

What I find funny is that my wife. Who is a off and on player. Even she found it very odd that Blizzard did nothing this year on one of their annual traditions.

WAIT WAIT WAIT....You rather choose to have an april fool's joke than real content...Dailies? Well apparently you're still playing this game, so u must enjoy it bud.
