It’s been a few days now since Blizzard officially took the wraps off of Mists of Pandaria, the fourth expansion set for World of Warcraft, so we’re sure there are a few questions bubbling around that skull of yours.
Lucky for you, Blizzard has come to the same conclusion, and is set to give you the opportunity to present those questions straight to the developers.
Kicking off at 5pm PDT on Thursday October 27th (that’s 8pm Eastern, midnight GMT, and 11am Friday morning in Sydney), Lead Content Designer Cory Stockton and Lead Systems Designer Greg Street will be taking part in a live online chat all about the new expansion.
(Please note: The chat will use the CoverItLive system, so if you want to get in on the action, it’s a good idea to register an account before everything starts.)
Community manager Zarhym explains:
This will be a moderated chat, meaning your questions will only initially be seen by the developers. If selected, your question will be published for all to see, and an answer will be provided. We ask that you keep the questions as concise as possible and understand that we won’t be able to get to all of them. We’ll be choosing questions based on the information we can reasonably provide, and what kinds of answers we feel will be the most compelling for the entire audience. Questions can no longer be submitted once the chat ends, but you’ll still be able to review a transcript of the questions and answers that were posted.
This is a bit of a trial run for Blizzard, who has previously held developer chats live over Twitter. If Thursday’s event works well, the intention is to make CoverItLive the standard tool – and, perhaps, if it works really well, we may see plenty more in the future.
If you want a chance to ask Mumper and Ghostcrawler about that fine detail that’s been bothering you – now’s your chance. Point your browser at the official WoW website at the dictated hour, and you’re good to go.
