DragonFireKai: "the fact remains that not only did Blizzard post a cheesy response to a question that didn't need to be put in there"It was the most highly voted question for the region. One of Blizzard's *stated goals* with the Q&A is to be more inclusive with the other forums, something that had been a major sticking point for years. As someone who does follow Blue Tracker, I saw this complaint come up on the EU forums almost daily.DragonFireKai: "but their answer was wrong on multiple levels. They referenced a patch that did not exist, and there were taunts that were still missing, despite their assurances that "patch 3.9" fixed it all."Patch 3.9 existed internally, and was *regularly* referenced publicly...until the last minute when they announced 4.0.1. The fact that Cataclysm had *two* pre-expansion patches (4.0.1 and 4.0.3) caught a lot of people by surprise.DragonFireKai: "All these flaws in an answer to a question that didn't recieve 1/10 as many votes as many more qualified questions that didn't make the cut. The majority didn't think that taunts miss, hell, not even the palty dozen upvotes required to highlight a post as highly rated were tallied. That question slipped through because Blizzard failed to properly weigh their input sources."So Latin American players shouldn't ever count then? That's toeing racism.DragonFireKai: "it didn't ask the questions that the majority voted on..."Yes, it did. You're assuming that the LA answer took up some "slot" of questions. The more likely reality is that if it had never been asked, the Q&A would have been one question shorter.DragonFireKai: "...it didn't answer all the questions that it posted."Bashiok: "Bashiok: "If we haven’t made an announcement on a topic yet, then chances are good we don’t yet think a change is necessary, or we’re not yet sure how we want to fix a problem. Therefore, it should not be surprising that many answers are going to say “we’re still considering it but have no announcements at this time.” If we have an upcoming change to announce, we’ll do that. We're not waiting for a player to ask just the right question."Seriously, why am I having to repost something I've already provided for you?At the end of the day, your attitude towards the whole thing, as well as Allison's and many other players', just reaffirms that Blizzard talking to the community might actually be doing more harm than good. The inability to take these Q&As for what they are, or to apply some perspective to their answers, is just causing a lot of distress.
