WoW_Ladies: Girl Gamers of World of Warcraft



What I find strange is this:

Surely they knew that as a community, we READ the patch notes, take a few weeks to digest them and then adjust our behaviour accordingly?

This was exactly that - the read the patch notes (it took us a bit longer to put the pieces together and it was so big and outside the box) and then collectively concluded that OUR beloved game in its present and coming incarnation (RealID, no privacy, FaceBook merger, ingame-advertising) the game had ceased to be worth playing


Thank you to everyone that spread the word far and wide!

Thank you to everyone that posted in the epic legendary thread of RealID doom!

Thank you to everyone that cancelled their accounts immediately.

Thank you to everyone that sold stock (by yesterday the prices had noticed).

I suppose I should see about resubscribing both my accounts now. =)

SO BLOODY HAPPY! GO GO WOW COMMUNITY!

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS

Honestly, I've been feeling almost physically ill for the past couple of days after the news hit. I didn't want to quit but I was ready to do so if they wouldn't back down. Every article and blog post I read about RealID was negative.

I FEEL SO RELIEVED NOW I DON'T HAVE WORDS FOR IT

^ this is EXACTLY what I was going to say!

I literally just got up and started dancing... And here I was two pages on the scanner away from sending Blizz my "legal change of name" form so I would be under my married name for my RealID (I do not use my married name for ANYTHING, has always been my maiden name, so if anyone went to Google me, they'd get zip!).

THANK YOU BLIZZARD FOR LISTENING TO YOUR CUSTOMERS!

And here I was about to post my personal story on the previous discussions. I'm so light-hearted and giddy right now OMG :DDDD

*insert dancing yeti here*

But why does it have to be "at this time"?

Blizzard, you continue to confuzzle me.

To make the backflip sound less drastic than it actually is. "At this time" sounds like a delay and, while that may yet be the case, it's a bit more face-saving than "The marketing folks realised the idea was epic fail so we've canned it."

Good, damnit.

Next time, take half a second to THINK about the consequences of your planned policies, mmkay, kids? Jeebus. It still boggles my mind that NOBODY at the company spoke up loud enough to stop this before it was announced to the public.

But that's all behind us. For now. I'm glad that they came to their senses, and I don't doubt that the voices of this community played a large role in their reversal.

YAY LADIES.

"It still boggles my mind that NOBODY at the company spoke up loud enough to stop this before it was announced to the public."

Maybe they did? Maybe the confusion about whether or not Blizz employees' real names will appear on forums was because some at Blizz didn't want it to happen?

LOL at the flying puppies!

HOLY FUCKING OMG GIMME A VUVUZELA I NEED TO PARTY AT WORKKKKKKKKK

lol YES THIS SITUATION CALLS FOR VUVUZELAS!

THIS IS AWESOME! THEY FINALLY FREAKIN LISTENED!

WOOT! /does the female Nelf dance/

My faith in Blizz is restored! \o/

LOVE the princess and the frog one.

This right here? This is why Blizzard is the king. Pixar has said that Blizzard is the Pixar of the game companies, and they're right.

OMG BEST NEWS EVER OMG

THANK THE LIGHT THEY CAME TO THEIR SENSES

SORRY FOR CAPS TOO EXCITED FOR ORDINARY CAPITALIZATION/PUNCTUATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

FUCK YES I'M DIVING IN TO THE GIF FOLDER BRB

OH MY GOD YOU GUYS WE DID IT!

I just got a warm happy feeling! I am seriously so happy I could cry right now!

*hugs everyone*

I almost want to cry, I'm so happy. Now I can stop mentally preparing myself for deleting everything and I can be excited about Cataclysm again!

I AM SO HAPPY!
I GET MY NELVES BACK
CUSS YES!

First: Yay!

Second: This is only the first battle, ladies. I'm betting it won't be the last we hear of RealID and their "plans" for it. We'll have to keep the spears sharpened.

Third: (Also) Yay! Party!

Agreed..... but! /dance

Holy shit!

...I'd love to be happier about this, but "at this time" concerns me, and there's still the matter of how Blizzard employees treated those of us with problems. :/ That latter is what sealed the deal on my cancelling.

The phrase "at this time" also pinged my loophole detector.
