Welcome to the General Discussion forum! This forum is here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss the chaos contained within Warcraft Arclight Rumble.

Community forums work best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy, so we ask that you take the time to read through the forum Code of Conduct and guidelines before posting.

Code of Conduct: https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/000256989

Terms of Use: Terms of Use for Blizzard’s Websites

The search function at the top of the community site is extremely effective and robust. Before you create a new forum topic, we recommend using search for similar topics, blog posts, or web pages that may contain the information you seek. Making a new thread on an existing subject can result in your thread being deleted or, if you continue to re-post the same content, the loss of your forum privileges for spamming.

Trust Levels
Trust levels are a new form of user participation on these forums. There are four levels of Trust (0, 1, 2, and 3).

By actively posting, liking, or engaging in topics, reporting forum violations, or simply visiting and reading posts, you can increase your Trust level. Higher trust levels come with more posting privileges, including gaining access to the ability to create links, embed videos to trusted websites like YouTube or Twitch, increasing your “like” limit, and participate or even create wiki-style posts that can be collaboratively worked on by other community members.

Please note that Trust levels are independent to game title forums; your trust level from forums for World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Diablo or other game titles are tracked separately from your trust level here.

Additional Guidelines
In addition to the forum Code of Conduct, here are some common courtesy guidelines to follow. While these do technically fall within the bounds of the Code of Conduct, they cover more specific examples of common errors that will lead to thread deletions or posting privileges being revoked.

The Warcraft Arclight Rumble forums are for discussion of topics directly related to the game.

The forums here are specifically to discuss the game and related topics. Any topics not related to Warcraft, Warcraft Arclight Rumble, Battle.net, or Blizzard Entertainment are subject to deletion.

Don’t post in all capital letters, use a misleading title, excessive punctuation, and/or non-standard symbols, etc.

While everyone wants their posts read, we ask you to refrain from using these types of tactics to bring more people to your thread. Let your post stand on its own merit. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion.

Posting “First” or IBTL (“in before lock”) is considered spamming.

You will be suspended if you create a post that is intended to call out that you achieved a specific reply number in a thread. This is considered spamming. Posting IBTL (“in before the lock”) is not helpful, and if you feel a thread should be moderated please use the rating button to do so.

Petition posts are frowned upon.

These are discussion forums and, as such, we ask that you hold discussions. Creating a thread to ask for replies as votes is not a discussion. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion.

Do not post about locked or deleted threads.

Posts that are moderated have a reason behind the moderation. It’s up to you to read the forum Code of Conduct and these guidelines to determine what you did wrong, learn from your mistake, and attempt to post again without breaking any rules.

There is also cool down period we institute during times of high forum traffic. If you are violating policy during one of these times due to frustration, you will be given a three-hour cool down suspension. This does not get logged on your record and is simply in place to keep the forums readable and civil. Serious violations will still have the appropriate action taken against them as documented in the Code of Conduct, and we do keep track of these cool down periods separately—if one is found to be repeatedly violating policy, appropriate action will be taken.
