    I am disappointed in Blizzard

    Post by Datasick on Sat Apr 18, 2015 12:19 am

    So I hoped online last night and what I was looking forward to of course was lobby permissions or of the sorts I suggested to Blizzard a while ago, but I was wrong to think they would do anything for there community without them getting their teeth pulled... So they decided to give the host REMOVAL POWERS...Guess what, a majority of our lobby trolls are hosts anyways so this does not make the problem better and in some cases makes it worse! We could literally have the game controlled and manipulated by random people and even in the hands of the trolls! WTF Blizzard!

    Am am assuming every single arcade and custom game has this crap so I am hoping people will be decent with it, but already on the first day I can foresee a shit ton of problems from people who harass us.

    WCS solution? If the host is a troll then go to backup? Or have someone trusted in the lobby before hand?

    I don't even know why Blizzard went half ass on this, but it might have been better if they didn't do anything?

    Anyone see where I am coming from?

    I still think it was a mistake. The patch notes clarified stating it was only supposed to be PENDERS that were able to be kicked. Somehow they fucking made it so everyone can, supposedly accidentally. They don't want to look bad, so I doubt they will change it to what it should be.

    I don't think Blizzard plans on making it up sadly, they sure fucked up this time.

    But on another note, Kudos to the map modifications, I love the attention to detail (Double thumbs up).

    Yep, there's some irony to it, yet I don't care about this.

    It's not like it was due to my failure in some way (ahem, Blizzard). Tell me when they exploit my game's system (the system after the loading screen) to troll me. That's what I care about.

    Wow, Blizz actually made it so lobby hosts actually have lobby host powers and are actually lobby hosts? Holy shit. Funny how I learn about it here of all places.

    You know, that's actually a good thing. That was the way it was done back in the day, and it was great. If host is a jackass, then create another lobby. Host should have the power to kick trolls and griefers.
