“Some expansions had four big patches, some had three, Warlords had two big patches with Patch 6.1 and 6.2. As the team gets closer to hitting the goal of a small gap between expansions there will be less large patches in each expansion.”
With 6.2 being the final nail in the nearly literal coffin of WoD and people’s negative feelings about this expansion swelling up again, I keep coming back to Dev responses as a real look inside WHY this expansion is so bad.
I get it, that working in a customer-happiness market is stressful. And I get that the forums (of any MMO) are bad, and twitter may be just as negative. But the developers have gotten so snippy, defensive, and downright blase about a really, really negative voice that’s growing louder as WoD progresses.
And I don’t have their job, and I know it’s not easy, but it makes me really uncomfortable that they seem to be in this stubborn I DON’T CARE IT’S GOOD ENOUGH defensive mode that I have a sinking feeling is going to keep going on even as WoD ends
WoD was the worst expansion, unarguably, put out to date from content to lore. But Blizzard will NEVER acknowledge this, because that’s not what big companies do. They don’t admit mistakes. And this mentality of infallibility, that ‘the numbers are still high enough!!’, of big business running what started out as a product of love and labor from a small talented team into an international money-raking corporation that has more than enough resources to fund a great team that can’t even put out four patches for an expansion yet charged us $10 more than the previous?
Blizzard will never admit to themselves, their corporate heads, how big of a mistake WoD was. And that means they’re not going to learn from it.
Larry and Laurent Bourgeois, popularly known as “Les Twins”, are a French hip-hop dancer duo, of Guadelupian origin, known for their New Style dancing. They appeared on the show Incroyable Talent and won the Juste Debout 2011 in the Hip-Hop New Style category. They come from a very large family with 18 siblings, 9 of whom dance.
Les Twins have performed with Beyoncé Knowles, Missy Elliot, Beats, and are NEXT fashion models. They have also appeared in Jay-Z’s That’s Rocawear viral video.
The Twins dance in New Style Hip-hop, a commercial form of hip hop with a strong emphasis on isolations and musicality.
However, the twins are known for having created a unique style from this dance which they refer to as “Twins-Style”. Due to their ability to anticipate and finish each other’s moves.
Charlotte Guillemin of WAD Magazine wrote: “They have really created a form of hip-hop that is truly individual to them…They are in perfect symbiosis. They look totally disjointed with their very jerky movements, although at the same time displaying an amazing fluidity. They undulate, bend and twist, impossible to assess where their center of gravity lies: both phenomenal and unreal.”
