Sounds pretty amazing to me. You mean, they actually talk to you at all?
03/13/2018 04:32 PMI think you might have some misunderstanding what Blizzard intends for the MVP program.

Perhaps that is so, but I think you severely underestimate just how bad the communications apparatus has decayed. What little you acknowledged would be incredible for any of the rest of us.
03/13/2018 04:37 PMI sincerely doubt they have the power and influence over Blizzard that you seem to think they do.

Don't misunderstand me. Dialogue is not power, but it is influence by definition. Though likely very mild. Even some Blizzard influencers shape policy with their words. But somebody has to be able to hear those words, or even uttering them is pointless.
We'd love to talk to you if only you didn't constantly bring negativity with every thread, tweet, etc - why do you think we would want to engage with that?
Part of our jobs here is to collect feedback to take to the development team, sure, but another part is fostering and supporting the parts of our community that will continue to help the community grow and become a more constructive place. I don't see any reason why it would be in our best interest to actively engage with a part of the community that is cynically negative.
I don't want to sound harsh, but come on now - this is very
much out of hand. This entire thread just goes to show that whatever crusade you're trying to rally here isn't really happening and is definitely not appropriate.
I'm closing this thread, and hopefully we don't have to have this discussion again.
