I tried looking up information from the forums about this issue but I couldn’t find anything concrete. Has Blizz said anything about the relative power of GM’s to solve problems in classic?
I know that GM power has been considerably curbed during the longevity of the game. The amount of “sorry I can’t do anything about that” responses have skyrocketed. I even recall reading that because of abuse of power GMs were kind of neutered in what they can do to try and solve problems. I’ve heard that there are no longer “wow gms” but every support person is a blizzard game master that is not game specific. Some people credit it to the population boom, but I would doubt that. WOW subs peaked in wrath and they were just as helpful. In Cata they imposed restrictions, but the playerbase was declining and has continued to do so.
Do we know if Blizz will have separate GM infrastructure in place for classic vs. retail or will classic be merged into retail support?
