however you have to remember that there are also many readily available streams, like the one you provide, which allow players to spectate others.
The thing about streams are they're usually limited to one PoV per team / raid, which can make them boring to watch in the long run. A spectator client would remove that problem and it would be useful to help out new players. All new games have spectator client and it would be a huge thing for the game.
the number that would actually use it regularly or even continue to use after its initial release is quite low.
Isn't there a way to spectate the brawler's guild thingie? I for one know I'll have 0 interest in watching that but you're still adding one :)
We have to be sure that we continue to deliver on new content for players to consume as well as avoiding taking away from other new and awesome projects that are in the pipeline
What you consider "awesome content" is objective, I for one don't really care for the new raids while I do run the scenarios from time to time but it doesn't make them "awesome content" for me. What I would consider as awesome content would be a new arena that doesn't have a million bugs like Ruins of Lorderon still has or a way to host your own ingame tournaments with a spectator UI.
"It's just a question of being able to get around to doing it, so someday...Hopefully."
If it was ever going to happen it would of been done a long time ago, I think most people understand that. For the start of Wrath was kinda the deadline since WoW was still growing as an competetive game back then, now it's declining because of Blizzard developers being big headed and just lazy.
it is just something that we do not have planned as of yet.
Just a question then, what if WoW "dies" it loses let's say 9 Million subscribers, do the developers still think that it's new PvE content that will attract players? People like doing arenas in this game because of the good movement and the good design of arenas.
