I wish this world was not black and white. Oh, wait....What I mean is, what is this article telling us? Is it telling us that we have no right to complain because this the PTR and not complete? No.It is telling us that this is how the PTR works. There are bugs to be worked out. There is code to be implemented. It is for the public to TEST what they are thinking about implementing.Should we complain? Well, define complain. Criticize? Surely. Explain what is wrong with this change because something is broken, bugged, or otherwise destroys balance? Okay.Tell Blizzard that the sky is falling, that we suck in PvP, that we are switching classes because of the PTR, that there are many bugs they need to fix or else, that we are quitting this game? NO. Or rather... if you are threatening to quit, then please do so the rest of us can enjoy the game.Does it sometimes seem Blizzard is ignoring a bug? Well, they do have to code the fix so maybe that just isn't finished. I like to think the Trap Launcher bug is a fine example of this. I have a dollar that says they knew all too well that it was bugged, but couldn't fix the code in a reasonable amount of time.Do I feel they make bad changes? All the time. Do I feel a need to defend Blizzard for these? No. Do I feel the need to rant on a blog site about why Blizzard hates hunters? No.So don't get things confused. Reporting bugs, explaining the upsets in balance and what Blizzard can do about them is one thing. QQ is entirely another. This article is to explain how PTR works to filter out some of the QQ. Maybe if we were not subject to such hyperbole that the world is forced to be black and white, then maybe we could move past this.Then again, I do realize I may be exaggerating a small amount. Maybe not. I can't tell anymore.

You can't have fun unless everyone kisses Blizzard's ***?

I see exactly how much of my comment you read. Thanks for quoting it. I do believe I answered your questions in all of the rest of the comment. Incidentally, in case I wasn't clear, people presenting legitimate grievances about the problems in the game does not effect, nor even affect, my enjoyment of the game. Although, your comment did bring about much laughter and enjoyment. The absurdity of equating legitimate grievances with the paragraph you quoted is hilarious.

I couldn't care less if the devs go absolutely loco on the PTR and change everything just to flex their creative muscles, but if crazy-stupid changes go live then we have a right to complain.And we also have a right to complain when something that was supposedly tested by hundreds of players seems broken, unintuitive or just plain wrong. When I was leveling my worgen from 1 to 85 I should have kept track of the number of times I heard myself saying "Someone tested this?!?"
