The Workshop is also getting more options for content creators, mostly focusing on the performance of the map on servers so creators can predict when the maps might shut down due to excessive load.

BfA Trial + 3 Days Gift Being Sent Out to Some Players BfA Trial + 3 Days Gift Being Sent Out to Some Players With the new patch coming tomorrow/Wednesday, it seems there's a round of Battle for Azeroth trials that include 3 days of free game time going around, but the gift is only hitting certain players. The gift is showing up in the Battle.net app, seemingly only for inactive accounts and possibly only those inactive since Legion as well. There also seems to be a way to trigger the gift if you haven't received it by going to the Battle.net site and clicking to set up a subscription (but not going through with it), which should trigger the gift if you're eligible for it.

We don't know what the exact requirements are for it at the moment and it could be just random, but these are some of the facts gathered up over on the WoW reddit. I've tried this myself on an account that's been inactive since around the start of BfA, but did not receive the gift.
