Informative interview actually. Whatever people think of him you can at least tell that Jeremy Feasel is still really passionate about WoW and good for the game generally.I'm growing more optimistic that 8.2 is going to be a decent patch and hopefully restores some interest in BFA.
Regarding Latin American servers and Brazilian servers: They are all located physically inside USA. As far as I recall locating the IP physically, they are hosted in Irvine-CA (Brazilian realms). Therefore, there is basically no logic in saying you're going to have higher latency by joining groups with a leader from LA/BR realms. You'll play with lower than 50ms (if you have a decent connection) while the leader will play with 100ms-300ms connection (depending on where he/she lives in Brazil, its mostly dictated by geographic distance to USA - the NE states have lower while N/S states have higher, as the optical submarine cable to USA leaves Brazil from NE). On the other hand, if you join a group with a Oceanic leader, than, yes, you'll face 300ish ms latency because now you're far from servers located in NZ, I think (but I'm not sure). If anything, Blizzard could offer a option so that you never join a group that will give you high latency: either you're oceanic and would never join an USA-hosted server group (I imagine you'd never wanted this so you don't limit too much your options) or vice-versa. TL;DR: Latin American, Brazilians and American servers are all nearby geographically and therefore would never cause high latency to American Players, only Oceanic. Oceanic servers cause high latency to Americans, Latin Americans and Brazilians players.in my own experience, there are times in the day (that match oceanic prime time) that is nearly impossible to group with oceanic players, unfortunately - I love playing with them - because latency for me can go as high as 1000ms.
"This is not set in stone, but the current plans for flying include flying enabled in Nazjatar and Mechagon."YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!
flying in nazjatar? no way!
I like that PvP free-for-alls are making a comeback, but I hope that they do something more to discourage grouping. It's literally marked "free-for-all" but more times than not you run into parties. They may not be able to heal and AoE friendly fire is possible but that doesn't mean it's not bull$%^&.
Uh, dear Editor, the reason Noob Blocker can't be seen on addon sites is obvious - it originated elsewhere. The G site still has the entire thing ready and available for anyone... including forking/branching.Seriously, Blizzard needs to break the API parts used for this.
Since they're making changes to how hair works with helmets, hope they change the way Elven ears stick out of them as well. That clipping has always made it look weird!
Looking forward to a mage tower-like challenge
"I have a friend who has arachnophobia and I have some spider traumas as well. When I was questing in Kul Tiras, spider quests made me feel all some traumas surfacing back up. Is there any way for those people to run away from those quests? To complete these quests without requiring interactions with giant spiders?"9.0: Rise of the Arachnid Horror...make it happen Blizz.
So apparently you can fly in Nazjatar which is a zone below water, but you cannot swim in it? Seems very logical to Blizzard. So far Nazjatar looks like Mac’aree from Argus!
Titanforging… just WHY? Make a crafting recipe to forge by yourself, if you are not lucky. Titanforging is so imbecilic concept...
