"Q: Would you please implement a feature that allows players to change the order of their characters on the Character select screen?A: Sure. Does 4.2 work for you? :)"That better not be joke... I'm always sceptical when people but ":)" in the end Or it sounds too good to be true..eh?

I'm gonna trust Bashiok on this one, but I will (barely) contain my excitement until it is live.

I'm freaking out right now. its sad but it is also true. thanks Blizz!!

Exactly what I scrolled down to post. It sounds just... too easy, after all of this time asking for the feature, to suddenly have it revealed as almost an offhand comment that they're planning this for the next major patch after the one currently in development.

This will be one of the best things to ever happen to WoW.

Incoming questions about how it works, when it's coming out, how it changes the select screen, when it's being put in, and for months until it does.

This better not go the route of the dance studio! (honestly, the game is about killing digital monsters not making up dances... yeesh)

... this was the most exciting bit to me too.I've been asking for this since before Burning Crusade was released.In fact, I used to post regular threads in the 'Suggestion Forum' on the old Blizzard Forums, right up until just after Wrath dropped.After that, I gave up on them ever implementing this change. And now they will.And I can finally put my most-played, highest-level characters at the top, and my bank-alts at the bottom.Huzzah!

I read this and said "wooo" outloud. But i'm by myself so theres no one here to look at me like i'm crazy...No more bank toon and lvl 25 horde toon being before my 85s.

Such an amazing waste of a slot in the priority cue for fixes and revisions. It has no impact on the game in anyway. Where a toon is on a list of 8, when all are visible at any given time, is an "issue"?Please. SO many more actual game impacting things to spend resources on.

This is what held Firelands back! Hooray! :D :D :D

@ElvgrenThat is exactly why Blizzard has waited all these years to work on it. The game (regardless of what anyone says) is in a great place at the moment, and they can afford to work on quality of life improvements. There are a ton more things Blizzard can fix, but this is probably the most asked for feature apart from (the now added) Old World Flying. Also this is a good place to point out that your priority will be different from mine and Blizzard's.On topic:I honestly can't wait for this. To be able to put my characters in a simple order of level would satisfy my OCD. It's the simple things in life that make it better, right? =P
