Mar 25th 2012 9:53AM A lot of the changes in MOP were made to bring players back, instead of simply making changes to improve the game. Because of this, there is no NDA on the beta.
Mar 5th 2012 1:17PM Every MMO needs a "Whisper Forwarding" option among the guild leaders. I don't know of any that have it, though.
Feb 20th 2012 12:45PM I agree that it would be a smart move for Blizz to take that approach, but I’m really not sure about the resources required. SWTOR uses 4 languages for all of the players in the game, right now. How many does WoW involve?
Plus, SWTOR’s guild features are pretty sparse, and their plans for guilds are extensive. This seems to be a chance to establish some priorities on the upcoming features. Guild ships are coming, but what is the current expectation or level of need? Operation and event calendars are on the way, but what features should they include first? Guild banks are right around the corner, but what level of control and access do guild leaders need and what ideas do they have to make them special for Star Wars? Also, they may be looking at other features for the game that can be incorporated more extensively for guilds.
I really believe that this is an attempt to manage expectations, and give the community a chance to persuade Bioware on a few unique ideas. Blizzard, however, would need so much more invested to connect to all of their established communities. Just the perception of disregard or neglect can be damaging.
Nov 1st 2011 9:44PM I think this opens up the possibility of a rogue tank spec with a focus on avoidance.
Aug 3rd 2011 11:17AM Agreed. It'll probably introduce the monk class to WoW, but no panda characters.
