Feb 6th 2009 5:36PM I'm really hoping that Blizz learned their lesson from this latest fiasco and will do the RIGHT thing this time and not release 3.1 until it's ready. I'm hoping they were embarrassed by the last patch and will work harder to make sure 3.1 is ready. One can hope.
Jan 23rd 2009 12:42PM I wouldn't count on the lag being fixed because Blizz indicated the only reason for this mornings' downtime was to bring Arenas back up.
Jan 21st 2009 6:04PM I knew once they merged with Activision that we'd see a deterioration in game quality and service. That's what happens when big companies take on little companies.
And it isn't just this patch. The bugs with each patch going back a year have increased substantially. Their service and communication with the community at large has become truly indifferent and lacking in quantity. Anyone else notice that they didn't have ANY news on their front page from 12/23 until 1/13? And blue posts to valid forum posts are sporadic at best and declining weekly. The complaints about stressed populations on servers continues with some queues still over 1000. (Thankfully I'm not on one of them). They simply don't appear to care. Whether they really do or not, it is the appearance of not caring that they should be worried about.
This is what happens when large companies absorb smaller ones. I miss the Blizzard of old.
Jan 21st 2009 10:05AM I tried and the world server crashed twice. I knew at that point it was just going to be a frustrating night if I kept trying to play, so I gave up for the night and watched a movie. No biggie. Things will be better today.
