And what a glorious era it was
! Tigole has announced that Blizzard has applied a hotfix
which will accomplish the following:
- Regular snowballs will no longer knockdown groupmates in the battlegrounds. Why? Well, with forced grouping, Blizzard doesn't want you to get stuck with a team-hating type who will constantly knock you on your butt via a well-placed snowball.
- Hardpacked snowballs may now only be used against the enemy. This should hopefully stop the griefing, which was apparently pretty annoying for those trying to rack up some honor.
I can't think of many people being too unhappy with these changes, unless they enjoyed the thrill of annoying their teammates
. Actually, there is quite the spirited discussion
in the hotfix thread in the forums, as some folks will dearly miss those snowballs.
