Praise to Bashiok

  • #1
    I am not sure if this is the right category to post this thread. If not then my apologies.
    I think the thread's title says it all, I think Bashiok rules.
    Here is a person responsible for monitoring and reading posts made by ANY one...pro, amateur, specialist, idiot...and be patient enough to provide a quick answer once, twice, thrice...a million times over. An answer that can be humorous, cynical, descriptive, ironic or just plain simple, depending on your IQ.
    I think Bashiok is doing a great job and I just felt like saying it,
    have a great weekend all. Take care.

    I wouldnt...i dont think that anyone else could do it as effectively as he does.
    What really makes me angry though some times is people that post annoying threads accusing Bashiok directly for the lack of updates and information from Blizzard. I mean, what is their problem anyway...everybody here are waiting for D3 with great anxiety...there is a virtue called patience that some people need to adopt.

    He can be really cocky. And wacko. I'd prefer Jay Wilson. Hes extremely patient and ... well .... not wacko.

    bashiok seems like a nerd with too much power....

    I don't think Bashiok is praise worthy. It's just a part of his job and if he wasn't doing it someone else would. He can only give away information that he's allowed to give away.

    I'd still like to see a fallen named after him though... but meh
    Maybe they should name a cow after Jay Wilson?

    :O:O:O
    Eventually, we're all worm food. Even the worms.

    Yeah there should be a boss of all the Fallens, named Bashiok.
  • #9
    Haven't seen anyone commenting on his new updated avatar. It's awesome.

    Yeah exactly. Id say cocky not outright arrogant, but still quite annoying and antipathic. Sometimes he also goes plain childish, which you wouldnt expect from a Diablo 3 Team member.

    Jay Wilson is way more professional and mature.

    I don't like bashiok. He doesn't provide information like karune does. He often reply with something useless. Sure a joke here and there is good but news you can't use is useless.

    Agreed.

    I also think he's a bit cocky :P.

    hahah, I really do enjoy his posts. So he's cocky, and he often makes fun of people. It's just how he is. I have never in my time reading his posts though "well that was a little harsh.." or any such thing. I find operating on "stupid question = stupid answer" is fine.

    Let's be honest, there are few people who would truly be professional in his shoes, I'm sure half of us would end up slightly inebriated by the power.

    Should he be praised? Maybe. I'm sure he isn't the only guy who could do his job as well and I'm sure there are many who would do it better.. but isn't that life; there's always some one better that you somewhere.

    Nah, I dont think hes inebriated by the power. Its just him. Theres a photo of him with Wilson and Boyarsky, he's got that douchebag smirk on his face EUGH.
  • #17
    I don't like Bashiok because he often puts people down on Blizzard forums when they simply disagree with Blizzard, even if they have good points.
    He often reply with something useless.
    That, too, and people keep track of his posts because he's blue. That's pretty irresponsible.

    Couldn't have said it any better.
    His posts are actually pretty funny from time to time, and he answers the posts that are serious, and well thought out.
    But those posts that are just randomly demanding shit, or complaining, he makes fun of.
    Whats wrong with that ?
    Karune did handle the job much more professionaly though, he tries his best to answer questions seriously.
    Although, his posts are nowhere near as fun to read as Bashioks.

    There are posts that are not that yet Bashiok also makes fun of them, that's all. He makes his own judgment and I don't agree with it. Some posts were also mysteriously deleted with Bashiok throwing around nasty comments.

    If there's something wrong with a post, it's best delete it altogether. Bashiok's attitude is pointless. I don't like assholes. I don't care if they're right, they're assholes regardless.

    Bashiok is not there to make posts that are "fun to read" if you ask me. Given the horrible mess battle.net forums are, he's not improving the situation, merely adding to it. He behaves like a troll half the time. Remove his blue status and just look at his posts from the perspective of the average user.

    Eh, thats a pretty good point (all of it).
    I have seen serious posts as well that he has made fun of.
    Yet another good point about the B-net forums, he isn't exactly helping the situation :/.
    Now that I think of it, he does actually behave like a troll.
    Heh, damn you and your logic Equinox :D.
