  • meremortalplays MereMortal (@meremortalplays) reported

    .@BlizzardCS @warcraft In my "old" age(35) I've noticed my patience with Blizzard's in-game bugs and inconsistencies, such as a world-trekking questlines progress disappearing upon logout and Blizzard CS not having the tools to fix, beginning to wane.

  • Soulstealx Jose Luis Aguila (@Soulstealx) reported

    @PadaPwet @Warcraft_FR I've had the exact same issue for about an hour now, and can find no info ¬¬ @BlizzardCSEU_EN @OverwatchEU

  • logankivo logan kivo (@logankivo) reported

    @doneire @EnterNerdyName @Target @Warcraft Well that’s better than what I’ve gotten from their customer service so far

  • NnoggaDK Nnogga (@NnoggaDK) reported

    .@WarcraftDevs AddOn Devs and players use symbolic links to make it easier to keep multiple directories synced up between games (retail,classic,ptr,beta for AddOn devs) and between multiple wow licenses. Since a week bnet app keeps deleting symbolic links. Fix please!

  • eternalmoonkin Navii (@eternalmoonkin) reported

    @Target is canceling a lot of peoples 15yr Warcraft Ragnaros statues...They canceled mine too. Way to go Target getting peoples hopes up then devastating them. This is beyond unacceptable as its been MONTHS since i put my order in. If there was an issue, shoulda caught it day 1.

  • RoryMcGuire Rory McGuire (@RoryMcGuire) reported

    @FraserIBrown Think it’s a platform issue. They should just change it to “the best 50 console games”. There’s two pc exclusives. No League, CS:Go, Hearthstone, Civ, Starcraft, Warcraft 3. Which are all clearly contenders

  • Naji_Ishag Naj (@Naji_Ishag) reported

    @realbuntyking @Grummz @Warcraft The link is not working.

  • Renegade_Joey Straw Hat Joey (@Renegade_Joey) reported

    i'm not working, in my boxers killing turtles at 2:42am on World of Warcraft... my life has taken a downward spiral. I have never felt like such a loser in all my life lmaoooooo

  • DrPolonium A Quotidian Mind (@DrPolonium) reported

    @AlexandraErin ... or the problems with, say, the Ferengi which are almost as blatant a Jewish stereotype as the Goblins in World of Warcraft.

  • sorrowfulnow 🏳️‍🌈 Sorrowful 🏳️‍🌈 (@sorrowfulnow) reported

    the problems really stem from that last point, it is obvious that the success of world of warcraft totally crushed any kind of ongoing plans for maybe addressing the idea of a WC4 and so they rolled on past their established canon and just did whatever they could think of

  • SuziMitch17 Suzi ✨ (@SuziMitch17) reported

    I think all playing Warcraft Classic is doing is reminding me what a broken piece of shit I am that can’t socialise or do anything without a panic attack. It ******* depresses me to realise just how bad it’s got these last 10 years.

  • nightstalker314 nightstalker314 (@nightstalker314) reported

    @WarcraftDevs regarding Classic questing: respawn rate and # of spots for "Guile of the Raptor" (Arathi Highlands) are god aweful and completely undertuned. At this point "no changes" are irrelevant as can be. Fix this obvious outlier.

  • BartnickZachary Naughtiemares (@BartnickZachary) reported

    @Asmongold @WarcraftDevs @BlizzardCS I am glad that I never got that far into classic where this supposed glitch would have affected me or I would be irate. I would think that with all of the fairness that blizzard preaches they would not allow something like this to go overlooked.

  • WhatIFTheories1 What If Theories (@WhatIFTheories1) reported

    @Asmongold @WarcraftDevs @BlizzardCS There is a lot broken atm all the DR tables for how classes function is wrong. Warrior charge wasn't added to DR till 4.06 and all Proc stuns didn't DR. So every class that uses them is boinked.

  • minid Minide (@minid) reported

    @Asmongold @WarcraftDevs @BlizzardCS fix pl0x

    @Asmongold @WarcraftDevs @BlizzardCS Confirmed broken!

  • JiriNen Jiri (@JiriNen) reported

    @MainosTDK @JoelSchwan @Warcraft Blizzard doesnt make their subs public moron. Can you now just go play classic and shut up and let people play what they want. What is your problem.

    @_Cadadam @Dukaachu @Warcraft If y'all are in the EU your bank might not like the direct purchase from a US site. I had this problem but I paid through paypal and it worked

  • Dukaachu Duke (@Dukaachu) reported

    @_Cadadam @Warcraft Been having the same issue, used live chat & they just blamed it on my browser, tried on multiple computers & phones & still can’t checkout zz

  • Aimeestrasza Aimee 🐲💕 || ⚫ Offline (@Aimeestrasza) reported

    Change of plans, I'm going with Warcraft Classic since Retail is causing problems for me right meow. And I'm probably going to be questing with Gregg who you cannot hear because he doesn't have a mic

  • RadiHood Radi Hood (@RadiHood) reported

    @Warcraft By the way if it was some **** test on addiction or memory loss it was way overdone! Really! Zero Addiction! No issues when driving. Actually it's safer than driving drunk. If it inspired someone to overwork, due to me not quitting in a clink. No my fault, I live in a Ghetto.

  • O567We Wendigo567 (@O567We) reported

    @BlizzardCS The World of Warcraft Classic game keeps on crashing. I will be doing quests and the next thing I know I’m stuck on a spell and other players around me freeze in place. I’d reboot the game and it still does it. Please fix this.

  • VengeanceV1 Ascend Veng (Ludwig) (@VengeanceV1) reported

    @DazsBF @Warcraft @LogitechG pfff i clearly don't have a problem i hit 60 on my lock and i'm already leveling my rogue 🙃

  • AminCad AminCad (@AminCad) reported

    @JuergenStrobel @ethereumJoseph @Warcraft @VitalikButerin @EtherealSummit 1/2 LN has seen collateral decrease over the last 6 months. It has been promised since 2015 as BTC's sole scalability solution, and for it to be growing so slowly, and having so many technical problems, like 99% of transactions over $200 failing to route, constitutes a failure.

  • randomt02352743 The Gamers Illogical (@randomt02352743) reported

    @RaymondDoerr Also, I don't agree with if you have a life mmo's aren't for you. I have played warcraft since bc, mind you I took a break during cata, pandaria because of my kids and now I am a full time streamer due to medical issues beyond my control.

  • tealversace ☠️teal (@tealversace) reported

    @AmazingDobe @Warcraft There's likely something in place for this, as this particular issue only applies to Demon Hunters and Death Knights....The open world party sync (questing) as I see it seems to work on the same system as scaling, and the only part where you're losing abilities is dungeons.

  • Necroxis9 Necroxis (@Necroxis9) reported

    Nobody cares if you create videos of what you WANT to happen. Most of us (Back when I cared enough about the Warcraft lore to make videos about it) do that. The problem is asserting wild theories as canonical fact. Its a fine line between reporting on lore & editorializing it.

  • VinTheBat Vin (@VinTheBat) reported

    @Zaboman @TheZippyZippo @Warcraft Beat me to it. Sidekicking was practically in launch (Think it was issue 2 or 3)

  • mcperson2k mcperson2k (@mcperson2k) reported

    @WarcraftDevs Ban people for clever use of game mechanics. It's not like they were exploiting the actual fight. Layering is the only thing that has hurt Classic launch. It's like you let 1 guy design layering and implemented it. How you didn't think about this issue while discussing it is sad.

  • Eixie_Frost Eixie (@Eixie_Frost) reported

    @Rhaizo3 @Warcraft @WarcraftDevs need to fix this!

  • Hi_Its_EmilyAnn Emily 💩 (@Hi_Its_EmilyAnn) reported

    @Warcraft some of my quests are broken

  • m0yj0 Moyjo (@m0yj0) reported

    Gonna need that hot connection issue patch tomorrow @Borderlands so I can play with my dude @iAmUncleFuzzy cuz this laggy stuff ain't it. @Warcraft is a click away always

  • 0xbytes zero byte (@0xbytes) reported

    @ethereumJoseph @Warcraft @VitalikButerin @EtherealSummit You will crash etheurium and/ or raise the gas price.

  • itsNket It's Jeff (@itsNket) reported

    @Warcraft Fighting against DDOS and Long queues

  • DarthApathetic Thomas Martinson (@DarthApathetic) reported

    @ChromWolf @annafunk @MirielleAsaki I don't play Warcraft but I do play some ESO and it handles this mixed party problem so seamlessly I am surprised developers don't rip it off.

  • KerynWeylan Keryn 🏳️‍🌈 - ❤️🥔 - "Ⓜ️🍑🎺" (@KerynWeylan) reported

    @ILienoI @annafunk @WarcraftDevs Yeah, that's what I was thinking of when I said "most" of the content... but it's a fairly short period of time, these days, so not too terrible of a problem.

  • mikedouton Mike Douton (@mikedouton) reported

    I have some fond memories of original EverQuest from back in the day... but yeah. World of Warcraft was a huge hit out of the box because it fixed a lot of EQ's issues even tho EQ's 2004 graphics and lore were better.

  • Tanknorris25 Tanknorris (@Tanknorris25) reported

    @Warcraft @WarcraftDevs pls fix classic phasing or you are Gona shoot your self's in the ass and ruin the game once again

  • rchetypical Luke (@rchetypical) reported

    @Appleofmyey @xeraxoraxura @Mr_Whiteflame @Grummz @Warcraft @CandyCrushSaga Tho: 1) Devs like the one that sparked this whole thing shows that it's unlikely that they will do that of their own accord. 2) With the new "Games as a service" malarky and lootcrates still being an issue, the feds are bound to get involved in gaming again anyway.

  • Aernath Aernath (@Aernath) reported

    @TwitterGaming I guess I did that in the past for Half-Life 2 and Baldur's Gate 2. But thankfully World of Warcraft, as an MMO does not have a problem like that and if I feel like there's nothing to do, I have 2 mains and 22 alts and now we have WoW Classic. Fun never ends! ;b

  • PompomMania Pompom Mania (@PompomMania) reported

    @Warcraft hey blizzard, good job suspending me from the forums for calling out a vilain. It used to be that players were held accountable but now you just ignore the problem and gag your loyal gamers. Been with you since it all started, it's such a disappointment.

  • blutigJK blutig (@blutigJK) reported

    @AsIwassaying1 @Chupstickzz @Felaryn @WarcraftDevs I understand what your stance is on this issue, but you seem to not understand that this is an MMO (and not a SP game) and has a competitive side to it. Unintended exploits to propel yourself ahead of competition SHOULD be punished. Perhaps you used the exploit yourself.👌

  • haleyalyssa12 Haley Mullins (@haleyalyssa12) reported

    @WarcraftDevs I've been experiencing a looting issue. Lootable items show up, but you click to loot, and they dont go to inventory or leave enemies, untill you close out. And reopen. Then they show not in the enemy's inventory. #classicwow

  • AmazingDobe Amazing Dobe (@AmazingDobe) reported

    @DwarvenHuntress @Warcraft I see no problem with other classes since this feature is more about playing with your friends rather than giving them an advantage (which they still get if they are new). but the dh starting abilities are quite limited compared to other classes at 60

  • UltimateLight9 UltimateLight (@UltimateLight9) reported

    Oh look a huge bug caused @Warcraft #WoWClassic chaos. Another reason why I never picked up this was better in 2004-2006, not today. New issues are breaking the game. Should have left the past in the past.

  • knosha36 Kristy Shafel (@knosha36) reported

    @Warcraft Phasing sucked. Glad their attempting to fix it

  • TinyElly 🇨🇦TinyElly in Canada🇨🇦 (@TinyElly) reported

    @Warcraft @Cowyyy I was excited and then I read “months” haha 😅 not a problem if we’ll just play together but still... :p

  • Realmordecar1 Realmordecar (@Realmordecar1) reported

    @MiniSodaa @tooncraft @WarcraftDevs Oh don't worry, they have a way to track it. Few months back, when I exploited the exp potion bug on retail, they gave me a 3 day ban for it. Although I think this is a bigger problem than the exp bug one. I hope Blizzard will balance the broken ecomomy created by this.

  • Felaryn Felaryn (@Felaryn) reported

    @AsIwassaying1 @WarcraftDevs Its one thing to find something, contact Blizzard and stop doing it and then go and do this thing which you clearly know isn't right and abuse it. If Blizzard goes and suspends people who have done a raid 3 or more times a week then I'd have no problem. They know it was wrong.

  • Felaryn Felaryn (@Felaryn) reported

    @WarcraftDevs Thanks for the fast response to this huge issue. Hopefully the huge offenders are punished for obviously exploiting this bug.
