The name Unholy Frenzy makes more sense anyway, since this is exactly how the spell of the same name functioned in Warcraft III.I'd say it's a big stretch to say it was renamed for omonimy with medical condition, considering how many abilities containing the word exist in Retail.
Honest question. Why do we have Rune of Hysteria as a runeforge in the live game if Hysteria isn’t an okay word? It would be reasonable for them to rename it to Rune of Frenzy or Rune of Unholy Frenzy or Rune of Dark Frenzy or something like that.
"Hysteria" is a bad word? What?
Hysteria ws my favourite spell ever, RIP.
im the only one who gets annoyed about that Unholy Frenzy/Hysteria "thing"? It goes way to much in the wrong direction with Blizzard.
Hysteria is a greek word that we sometimes use in everyday world too. they have become hypersensitive after the lawsuits.....
So they are changing the names of spells so someone isn't offended, but arms warriors overpower still says invalid target on every mob.Would love to be able to test my specc but that's cool too lol.
If it's indeed true then this is starting to be a terrifying practice. I am beginning to feel sorry for the people in the US for the drastically developing censorship. Totally normal words and terms being banned or replaced because they may offend someone... I hope my comment does not offend anyone....
now we just need dungeon finder and maybe it will be closer to classic as it should be
Neat that they included the gender switch feature for the barbershop.
Maybe Def Leppard will have to rename their song too?
wow, wtf are you doing Blizzard ? This is so ridiculous. Can you work on what we really care ? Release fresh server with pre patch now instead of wasting our time, wtf blizzard
I think it's mostly likely that Blizzard is cencering by going from 'Hysteria' to 'Frenzy', but there is also that one procent chance that they are trying to avoid confusen from people who decide to try out classic, or vise-versa, it could even be abit of both.With all that said, cencership is never a good thing, cause it restricts what can/can't be showed in a video, to try not offending people, dispite the fact that the people getting turned the other way by these small things, would more than 99% of the time, find something alse to get offended about.I'm not trying to offend everyone, but this is the kind of thing i see all the time, and it's just getting annoying that resourses are waisted on things that don't matter in the first place.Thanks if you read it all, just needed to put my opinion out there. Have a nice day :-)
Because lets pretend the whole of ancient medicine and psychiatry wasn't offensive when contrasted with our modern perspectives 🙄
Changing it to Unholy Frenzy makes sense, since offense buff at the cost of health is exactly how the spell worked in WC3.I'm pretty sure that that is why the spell is renamed (way back in Cata, btw), not because of anything related to the term. Especially since it's still used elsewhere.
I know this is nothing new, but, Blizzard's reasoning for the talent name change is so senseless. It's legit just trying to look "woke" thinking it will bring in more players for an inclusive play environment....for a character class called a Death Knight. Cmon, no one legitimately thought having a talent named "Hysteria" is an anti-women approach in concept. Just ridiculous.
