Well, there is the good and bad with transparency with the user base.
On one hand, it could be helpful to generate interest and get feedback on the development of the game…as it’s happening.
But does Classic WOW have a problem with generating interest? The only reason it is being worked on now is because it’s one of those rare situations where the public spoke so loudly that they were forced to listen. Also, the scope of the project is pretty tight…version 1.12, with minimal changes…so feedback from the community isn’t all that helpful.
On the other hand, sharing more information may just stir the pot of points of conflict within the community and will create a lot of noise to sift through for meaningful feedback.
I’m totally with you…I’d love to get something from Blizzard to hold me over…just playing devils advocate.
