We were allowed to choose the toon that was given the role when we were invited.
I almost chose a different toon cause I knew some people had issue with how blunt I am, but I wanted to be as transparent as I could.
There’s also people from EU who have basic characters on NA for posting in the NA forums.
Likewise, as others said, we’re all forms of content - I don’t touch mythic raids, rated PvP, M+, etc. I’m a casual content player - pet battles, solo world questing, LFR, etc.
We have varied interests - I want like, Sethrak as playable, but someone else may not. (As seen in the thread I just posted, I want new class combos, another one doesn’t), etc.
We have no power at all. All we have is the ability to give the feedback that’s important to us, in response to things in the game. Likewise, as it’s in threads, the other members from other aspects of the game can weigh in on how they feel about those topics at the same time.
The one time I tried posting on another character after joining the Council (specifically for that reason), I got yelled at by multiple people for trying to “hide myself.” So I just didn’t bother anymore.
You don’t have to agree with everything a CC member says, just like you likely don’t agree with some of your friends on parts of the game. We’re just regular players like you.
