"Wow, we're all so shocked that Mike posted a video of a tiny ungulate!" - No one.

Drindaar_Lightkeeper asked:

Do you think along with new models we could see greater customization options? Like a choice of noses, eyes, etc. Maybe even a choice of sub-race (wretched, broken, etc.) as long as it made sense lore wise? Or will the character creator remain the same with just a shinier models.

I don't want to be too cynical, but I think it would be best to go into this with the expectation that we'll just be getting newer, shinier models instead of sweeping customization changes and additions. Whatever we get will be lovely, I'm sure. Just maybe don't expect more.

Skyreiser asked:

The recent gold duping issue in Diablo 3 made me wonder, if you get perma-banned in one game of blizzards (WoW, Diablo, Starcraft) is that account now banned from all three?

Bans are usually per license (that is, per single game account) as opposed to per account, but it's possible for Blizzard to close Bnet accounts altogether depending on the severity of the offense.

Eyhk asked:

Should Blizzard be focused on creating a new game to upend WoW before someone else does? It may simply be the server or guild I am in, but I remember a majority of the player base being my age, back in Classic, and now, almost 10 years later, a majority still seems to be my age, which means the player base has aged. This is a very subjective observation, so definitely a big grain of salt, but I think it would be interesting to see the demographics of WoW players over the years, and how that's changed. Maybe they just need a new game to spark the imagination of a younger generation?

Titan is, I'm sure, intended to pick up the slack that WoW can't, but I don't think it's intended to replace WoW altogether. I think it's still going to be quite a while before WoW stops being profitable. Remember that it and Call of Duty are basically keeping Activision in corn flakes right now.

TedTheThird asked:

Are Brawler Guild invites still just on the BMAH? Is there another way to get them?

Yes, you've always been able to get them randomly from the PVP rare mobs in Krasarang.
