[quote:26t1ykyn]So why don't you send that rant to Blizzard or post it on their boards instead of cluttering the boards here? I assure you that the designers won't see what you have to say here.[/quote:26t1ykyn]
I don't post on the blizzard boards, because I am not a member of their boards nor do I intend to be
and to be honest they're making gazillions without my help so I doubt they could give a crap and half about my opinions
I'm also not cluttering the boards with anything
if you don't enjoy the spirit of open discussion then don't come to open topic
I know you work for blizzard, but that doesn't preclude me from speaking openly about my feelings to my other scirra colleagues
[quote:26t1ykyn]Also, remember that designing and maintaining an MMORPG that has over 10 million subscriptions is no easy task at all. And Blizzard is definitely always improving the world, trust me on this
I'm sure it's difficult
so is designing an operating system capable of supporting countless devices from several eras, as well as thousands of apis from said eras, with tens of thousands of hackers trying to exploit and destroy your OS, or compromise other users' privacy, with a userbase of hundreds of millions, but that doesn't stop people from criticizing microsoft.
wow is greatly overrated as a game, in my opinion. you don't do much at all, you just get to do it with other people. I don't see what all the fuss is about. for the millions a month they make, it could be better, and the users who have paid the full price of the game 5 times per year since it's inception should get the expansions free. what are they paying for actually?
anyway, on happier note, great job newt.
I'll use that on the example exes when I finally get around to the upgrade for the bitmapped font object
