    Someone once said "Leave this place, and never return". That's what they need to do with Warcraft.

    It's not the fault of the players that the developers either can't, or don't want to bother, making a UI that isn't shit at its job. If players see the need to fill their screens in HUDs and readouts, it's because Blizzard has failed to make a UI that conveys all of that relevant information for gameplay.

    I mean, you look at this "Art Direction" and all you see is a bunch of meaningless gibberish and rave lights. This is totally useless. Art is all fine and good, but it serves no actual useful purpose if it does not actually convey relevant information, and you can't even ogle it when it's buried under a mass of pixie farts.

    the base wow UI is actually pretty good. if you need airhorns blasting in your ears and doritos text covering half the screen to tell you to stop standing in a giant patch of fire you might just not be cut out for raiding

    It's not so much about flashing text and airhorns, but of having the ability to easily adjust the UI as I want. It's ridiculous that this game is 70 years old and I still need to get addons in order to unretard my hotbars, resize my quest tracker, be able to tell when my party's cooldowns are up, etc.

    Whatever talent for innovation they had is simply not there anymore. Their motto is to keep pushing the same bullshit for maximum efficiency with minimal cost. Activision's pawprint is all over them.

    yeah I'm convinced at this point that the whole wow team is like 10 people and at least 2 of the 10 don't do anything

    The team is massive. It's basically two teams. With one working ahead on the next expansion. One of the reasons they have trouble innovating, actually.

    Their problem is resource allocation. Way more effort goes into things like the trivial art details for garrison building differentiation than on creating new gameplay modes.

    WoW's problem is that the developers seem to have no idea what the players want out of the game or how they engage with its systems. So they make what they think the players want, and fix it to be at least passable in the last patch before the next expansion. They have an ideal player in their minds, and it rankles them that the game's most popular streamer is someone like Asmongold who is the opposite of that.

    They should be ecstatic that Asmongold has made more than 6 people care about collecting mounts.

    Any bets on which character is catching the gay in order to save Blizzard's PR? They need to bring something big this time. I'm saying either Arthas or Diablo.
