Yeah
They are not worried about those people.

They put the line out to see if there are enough people with interest in features that they can do. Also to keep the forums clean and not full of multiple threads on the same topic.

I was surprised that they said anything at all. They usually stay silent to keep from feeding rage. Fortunately, they are still being noble about it. I know there are some Blizz people outside of the WoW dev team that disagree.

Nothing in that article is shocking.
They're not going to upgrade to win 10 because it's not compatible with the software of the equipment they use or with the software used for charting.
Even if such a switch was available the price is expected to be too high to risk. Given that there will be undiscovered bugs that could cause problems. The lawsuit potential is too high for them to do it.

Microsoft would need to fork over the cash to do it themselves and back it up in court.

The people I know at Blizzard have said that they don't expect people to play legacy servers long enough to justify the cost to keep them running. The devs believe 100% that too many people would get bored or upset over the old issues on those versions. Some players will start wanting them to patch the legacy servers without updating the content. Some would want the old talent and honor systems and others would want the new systems with just the old content.

So last that I've heard, the people signing the petition are wasting their time and most likely any questions about it at Blizzcon will get filtered out. Even the panel questions.

Then Blizzard doesn't trust their fans, which is precisely Blizzard's problem to begin with. This is why Brack said "You think you do, but you don't." Nostalrius showed Blizzard the exact opposite. Blizzard just needs to trust their fans. There are way more legacy fans (Vanilla, TBC and WOTLK) than retail players.
No, Nostalrius did not.
They couldn't secure $500 a month in donations to cover the costs of running it. They were already on their way out.

The number of servers required is always ambiguous though. Do you want both PvE and PvP? For each region? What about the expansions? What timezone would they occupy?

There's likely no way Blizzard would foot the bill on support staff either.

You're absolutely right, which is why virtually everyone advocating for legacy servers is telling Blizzard they would either be willing to pay $15 per month for a regular subscription, or $15 plus $5 to access legacy content. In other words WE would pay for the legacy support staff, infrastructure costs, etc.

Last but not least, a large part of what made those older titles great were the people I played with and how new and epic it felt which simply cannot be re-captured at this point. Far too many of my friends from back then have quit and raiding no longer feels as exciting as it did.

You'd be surprised how many would. Nostalrius had players from day one working through dungeon and raid content. In fact before the shutdown everyone was looking forward to AQ40 and the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj event. Outside the sphere of Nostalrius plenty of people have stated they would resub to play legacy content in a heartbeat. Personally I would resub and stay with vanilla for quite awhile. I truly loved South Shore and Terran Mill skirmishes, which I learned from Rob Pardo in a 2013 BlizzCon video was the first battleground designed specifically for open world epic PVP battles.

The people crying over it are fools.
Nostalrius couldn't even scrap together $500 a month in donations to cover the costs of hosting the server. There's also a lot of accusations that the player numbers for those servers are exaggerated to try and show that demand is higher than it really is.

They can offer the servers with a disclaimer that they won't get patched, that their characters can't be transferred, and that their AH may be disabled. I think the people who just wanted to see what it was like would be thrilled with the opportunity.
This won't work. There will still be people who expect it to be maintained and have GM support.

The nostalgia factor is great. But truthfully it only lasts a short while when I go to play something old. That's why Blizz isn't doing it.
Let them blame Activision all they want. It's not going to make it true.

I read an article some months ago about people using devices in their pockets to scan the chip cards in peoples wallets. Just by walking close to them or bumping into them on the street. But there's supposedly wallets out there meant to block those.

Give it less than a year and chip cards won't be anything special safety wise. They'll figure it out.

From the video discussions back at E3 they emphasized that the executions are how you get most of your health and ammo. That was done intentionally to keep the combat and the player moving. They repeated that this isn't a hide behind cover and play peekaboo shooter.

This game does look a bit cartoony to me but I'm fine with it. The original doom looked cartoony to me too when it first released and I was a kid back then.
This game will stand a chance so long as they don't have a problem like Arkam Knight.

Most important thing will be the controls. If it doesnt have proper PC controls and instead console controls with delays or senseless key distribution where for example you have to use different buttons even though you only need one, it will be just another shitty converted shooter.
You'd think with ID's background that it would be the reverse.
As to the chainsaw comments. I can't imagine being able to swing a chainsaw into a hunk of bone and meat and not have it get stuck as it chews through.
Old Doom's chainsaw had strategic use if you knew the mechanics behind the game. For example the saw was great against Pinkies and Cacodemons because they had a high chance to react in pain. Meaning that you could keep them locked down most of the time as you drained their life. A few would get a hit on you but most of the time it was a painless and ammoless kill. I wouldn't be surprised if the current ID team was looking to replicate that.
Hopefully their "Snapmap" (i.e. editor) gives you the ability to alter weapon behavior.

Now as to the video. Is that a Hellknight or a Baron of Hell? He has the color of the Baron but all of them in Doom 3 were Hellknights regardless of their color.

Prices of collectors editions are getting out of hand IMO, tempted for this game though.
Yeah I noticed a lot of studios are slowly bumping the price over the years. Adding in bigger statues to justify the price.

High hopes, low expectations for this game.

I bought this a few weeks ago (first time) and it runs great so far. Though I'm only a few hours in. There are still people on the Steam boards claiming otherwise on their systems. Some finger pointing at duel video card setups too.
I'm running an AMD 8320 CPU, 12 gigs of RAM and a Radeon HD 7800 card.

Hospitals are not upgrading from XP because their equipment will not function on any other OS. They'd have to replace perfectly functional medical equipment that would cost hundreds of thousands to millions to buy and install depending on the size. Having to take the roof off to drop something in by crane for example.
Reason why?
The manufactures of that equipment won't make money if customers are just upgrading the OS. Large medical equipment isn't a "Consumer Product"
It's cheaper on them in the long run to have their IT compensate for the leftover holes in XP. Followed by settling any violations out of court.

If Microsoft wants 10 on new computers at corporations that badly then they'll need to fork over the money to make 10 compatible with those odd ball programs. Because the other way around isn't going to happen even if it's the correct way to do it.

I've played the first few levels of the map pack they released and they are very well made. They don't look or feel like something I'd expect from a "mod". There's a lot of TLC put into them.

Now, if Blizzard would only get around to actually banning/blocking the bot users... at least for Diablo 3, no clue how (in)effective they've been in their other games.
You can't.
They'll just use tunneling services to mask their location like many of the gold farmers already use. Blizz won't restrict people to playing from certain locations because that would be too much of an inconvenience to legit players.

Blizzard is crying too much.

Let's say in future we get much better ai programming and people can have software play game for them, using normal pc inputs, as long as customer owns license to play the game on the pc thats legal. I guess Blizzard should be looking into making terms that only humans are allowed to manually and physically play their games lol.
They already do. It's been like that from day 1.

Grokk wrote on Nov 11, 2015, 21:46:
I have to admit, I do sort of like that they are going after the source of the problem, rather than just blocking the functionality of the bots, or banning the accounts.

However, banning accounts works mostly in Blizzards favour, since the offender will most likely purchase the product again.

It does seem like the bot makers are getting better though, possibly to the point where Blizzard is now unable to detect the bots and is forced to shut down the operation instead.
I know people working in Blizz support. It's a cat and mouse game. Once they learn to detect the bot or hack they knock out all the accounts using them. Then the authors rewrite the bot/hack and the cycle starts over. There's absolutely no permanent solution to it.
The bulk of the players don't want to cheaters around so Blizz spends millions on staff fighting it to keep the impact as low as possible. If they didn't do this then the game would have never made it to WotLK and would have ended up in the fail bin like many other games that got destroyed by cheaters.
