Newsletter July 23: We Have Communities!

Year 4, Issue #30

Hello, Readers.

The pre-patch has launched and not a few bugs have been unearthed. If you want some insight into why it has been such a disaster of a patch day, make sure you check out the Q&A from last Thursday. You can find the video embedded in our News segment. If you're just looking for information on the server outages from patch day, then you only need to watch the first few minutes. Personally, I recommend watching the whole thing, as further into the Q&A they also touch on issues that have cropped up from the iLevel squish, as well as other important issues such as alternate artifact forms for druids, and Hati.

I always find the Q&As informative, myself. They give a glimpse of insight into decisions the developers make, what they're aiming for and, of course, what issues they find along the way. What is said in the Q&As isn't always what we as players want to hear, but hearing why a decision was made, at least, makes things understandable, even if I still don't agree.

You will also find in this newsletter an article linking to our newly established A3 communities. While we do not intend to replace Discord as our main chat interface, we are also aware that there are those of us who find it easier to communicate through the Battle.net groups feature. With the Community features expanding this, it only makes sense to reach out through this new medium. It will also be extremely helpful for setting up groups when you want to go get done that one thing you've been putting off for ages.


I hope to see you all in game!

Warcraft Communities
World of Warcraft has launched the new Communities feature with the BfA pre-patch. Communities will allow you to join an in-game, cross-realm group for A3 and more. This will allow you to chat with fellow A3ers cross-server, form groups quickly and easily, and announce rare finds for battle pets. For more information read here.

Click the links below to join one of our groups.



These communities will not take the place of our Discord server, but they do give members another way of engaging with one another.

VENDOR DONATION DRIVE
Currency can be a real pain to farm - especially for so many pets! We'd like your help farming vendor pets so that we may share them with other A3ers! This Donation Drive will include most pets purchased from vendors using currency, all vendor pets purchased using currency + gold, and some that require gold only. This event will include any cageable pets that can be purchased from a vendor using currency and/or gold (74 pets total!). Check out the information post for a full list. Tiers for this donation drive are 50, 100, and 150.
Members who earn at least 15 entries total during the Donation Drive will also have the option of choosing a Plush from the Blizzstore, a Funko Pop! Vinyl from the Blizzstore, or any Funko Pop! Vinyl from Funko's Amazon store as their Tier 3 prize!


Maximum value $25USD before S&H!
International shipping OK!

Connecting A3ers through Discord
Image
A3 is always looking for new and interesting ways to connect with its members. One of our greatest hurdles, though, is connecting members to each other. With everyone playing on different servers, different factions, and the limitations of the friends list – many of you have probably never had a chance to connect. We hope to use the Discord App to help solve that!

The major perk of an app like Discord is that communication is live. Meaning – you can see it on the fly (assuming you are logged in). This will be an advantage over the forum or twitter where you need to check in throughout the day. It will be especially helpful with organizing groups, sharing rare spawn information with others, or just getting to know your fellow A3ers!

I look forward to seeing everybody in the A3 communities! Be a great way to coordinate running timewalking for badges to save up for the Mists pets and all those other goodies across the expansion related timewalking.
