Blizzard Posts for Dec 12th: Reputation Catch-Up, Tab-Targeting, Improving PTR Communication
2016/12/12 at 6:46 PM
Blizzard posts for December 12th include thoughts on reputation catch-up mechanisms, replies to a tab-targeting question, and thoughts on how to improve PTR communication.
PTR communication has been a hot topic since 7.1.5 launched with many class changes and a lack of blue posts or patch notes. To make up for this, Blizzard recently devoted a Q&A to 7.1.5 class changes as an experiment, but that wasn't ideal either; every spec only got a few minutes and some players were interested in more general topics while others wished more time was spent on details. There was also confusion surrounding secondary stats; the community knew changes were coming for several weeks, but when the revamp hit the PTR, only two out of the three parts of the revamp were testable.
During the Legion beta, Blizzard also published "Class Notes" which helped highlight important changes for testers and supplemented the raw datamining. These Class Notes have not been present during the PTR and since not all specs receive their changes at once, players have been struggling to piece the overall picture together for classes.
Some ideas suggested as improvements include AMAs to better address spec-specific discussions, an increased forum presence, and Class Notes to explain the highlights of PTR builds again.
