Is there a specific date for the visual update, or is Damien's Soon still the most official "date"? :D

It is pretty cool that there will be a community manager, and congratulations on your new job!

Definitely looking forward to the secret stuff, whatever it will be.

I think we're still at Soon :P

 

Thanks, hopefully I can make a decent impact! The secret still will be amazing, I'm sure of it

Hey, just made an account because I thought I'd try and mention this somewhere you guys can see.The other day I tried unblocking your ads, y'know, trying to do the nice thing and support sites that I use yadda, but there is something...not quite right with your ads. After I unblocked them I noticed that Firefox, on any of my tabs, started locking up and acting incredibly sluggish. Disabling your ads once again solved the problem. No idea if this issue is prevalent or on anyone's radar but I thought I'd throw it out there. Maybe it can be one of the changes?

 

On to happier news, your site and the information it provides has been a big help for me. Thanks for keeping the site going!

Cheers for the feedback Khalidus.

 

I will pass this feedback to Damien who will have a look into it.  If you're interested there has been a post on our use of ads previously so go have a read

Hey there,

The kind of problem you describe is why we've started looking for different sources of income (such as premium or Patreon). I don't really know what to say, I send reports every week to the ad agency we work with and these problems just never seem to stop. If you are willing to help us track down these ads, so we can investigate the problem, please send us a message at contact@icy-veins.com. We'll do our best to help.

It's hard to say, but I'm going to work a lot on this for the next few days and see where that gets me. The main issue I had to face is that bbcode is disappearing from the forum software. It's actually a good thing, because the rich text editor really works now. It's just that I had to replace all of the custom bbcode I had created for these forums with editor buttons. The development process for these buttons is a bit clunky so it took like forever, but I've finished last week. I even made some nice drop downs for Hearthstone, Diablo, and Heroes (like, you click the button, start entering text in the dialog window that appears and it autocompletes to show suggestions based on what you typed - super handy, Sottle tested it and loved it).

this is the reason i had to disable ads again as well.. doesnt seem to matter which browser im using either.. also even though they arent supposed to be there, it seemed everytime i logged on, i had videos autoplaying, which started screwing with other things i was trying to do.. that being said.. i love this site, its helped me a lot, and considering the time you all put into it, i wouldnt mind paying a reasonable fee for a premium or patreon membership.. 

 

Blainie, congrats on the new position! looking forward to the incoming changes :)

Yeah, it's really frustrating to have it happen. We're trying to fix all of this kind of stuff, but it's encouraging to hear that people are willing to look at other options with us. It gives us the freedom to explore possibilities!

 

Thank you and I hope we can get them out to you soon!

Hopefully we'll get these events and communities running ASAP, mainly so that I cheat and win all the events. Just joking. Or am I?

      It's time for a new episode of the Icy Veins podcast! Deadset shares his impressions following the community's backlash after the Diablo Immortal announcement at BlizzCon. The game in its current state is entirely cooldown-based and there are no resources. The developers are still discussing monetization models for the game.
      Creative Director Alex Afrasiabi said in the Eurogamer interview that Sylvanas was actually responsible for Wrathgate. They want to make old maps compatible for Warcraft III Reforged right out of the box and huge experience nerfs are coming to leveling in Tides of Vengeance, so leveling your alts for Heritage Armor should be faster.
