Otherwise, based just on the posts you can find on this forum, you'd see game design change from one extreme to the other with every single patch, which is not really the case (even when the developers change the direction on which they're taking the game).
My point isn't about developers reacting to a minority sorry that's not where I was going with that. I didn't express myself very clearly.
My view is that even if you did have a reliable way of knowing what the "majority" wants, it still wouldn't necessarily make it a good idea. Change for the sake of change usually just creates problems where there were none before.
It feels like Blizzard is trying to run a Dictatorship like a Democracy. It just doesn't work. It's great to use and give feedback, but you can't deny that many changes have been made because of the fuss the community kicks up, be it on these forums or through other means.
Or maybe you just have too many developers that have a say, that would explain why there seems to be no direction to the game. You're trying to cater for too many different people rather than just deciding where you want to go with the game and sticking to the plan. Either way, whatever plan there was when I adored this game is no longer in action, hence I'm a casual and although I still enjoy some aspects of the game, I'm ready to give my gaming heart to another game, should a real mmorpg come along.
