I really hate this kind of stuff, I'm sorry to be an asshole, but it's not when someone is dead that you show them love, it's when they were in distress that you had to show them they matter..

I think, in part, something like this is done to show EACH OTHER love as well. I'm certain that a lot of people recognized their own struggles when they heard the news, and logging in to see an entire community of people caring is an important reminder that there is always someone to turn to.

A lot of times they were shown that kind of love and outpouring in life but it didn't matter.

Never heard of the Reckful guy before he died.

But, it's nice to see the community that did know him show support and sorrow at his passing.

This is absolute bullshit though. I know this is gonna be taken incredibly negative, but it's disgusting to see so many people please their own god damn ego by doing the "look at me, I care!" march on social medias and everywhere else online today.
People that dont even know who he was have been joining this campaign! What kind of sick behaviour is that? Would you want strangers that didn't even know your dead friend at his funeral? No of course not?

Absolutely 100% correct. The game was designed to have pvp in faction capital cities. If you don't want to be disturbed with that, go to a neutral sanctuary or get some guards. Anyone who abused the report mechanic to ban people for perfectly legitimate gameplay should be banned.

Never heard about this guy before, but I agree with people here being critical of this "tribute". He obviously needed some help, yet people remembered him only after he died. If they really cared, they should have organized something while he was still alive. Now it comes as very shallow, nothing else.

There is a difference between someone that does that because they want to play and actually pvp in those situations but all we've met were people that were doing this on purpose and saying stuff like thank fk he's dead and all kind of *filtered* like it, I assure you there was no genuine person that was doing that.

You should get informed better before commenting such thing, if you read statements from his roommate and his gf/ex-gf and friends you'd see that's not the case.

Fair enough, but all these random people acting as if they suddenly cared so much. What did they do for him?

There's not really much someone from the internet could've done if people that were watching him couldn't. Yes, there are some people that just 'show off' with this, but in my case for example I've always sent positive vibes and been in his stream for the past 7-8 years. We do not have control over such things. If you could blame anything it's the twitter people that sent him hate and probs made him feel very bad during & after his manic episode then also said that they care and insta deleting their hateful comments.

      Here's a video covering everything coming in the War Within pre-patch event on July 30th.
      Radiant Echoes, the pre-patch event, will begin on July 30, based on the splash screen. We covered the whole event in great detail, but for those who need a reminder:
      You must complete a short quest that leads you to the Dalaran Chamber where you can teleport to Dustwallow March, Searing Gorge, and Dragonblight. When a Radiant Echo is active, you must port to the zones, slay Lingering Memories and "Remembred" mobs to gather Residual Memories that you can turn in for rewards. The whole event ends in slaying Remembered Onyxia, Remembered Ragnaros, or Remembered Lich King, based on the zone you're in. Rewards include Warbound ilvl 480 gear, mounts, battle pets, bags, and more. You can find the quartermaster either in the Dalaran Chamber or in each of the zones. The event will most likely be available until the TWW Early Access begins on August 22 or when the expansion launches on August 26. For more details check out our detailed preview of Radiant Echoes, but you should also check out MrGM's latest video because the whole event has been bugged on both Beta and the PTR for me and I couldn't get a single Lingering Memory to spawn.

      The War Within pre-patch event will start on July 30th!
      Blizzard hasn't officially announced the release date for the War Within pre-patch, but the latest splash screen suggests that Radiant Echoes, the War Within pre-patch event begins on July 30, 2024.
      This would give players four weeks to join in before the new expansion officially drops on August 26 (or August 22 for Early Access holders).
      We expect the pre-patch to hit live servers on or before July 30!
      Check out the full splash screen in all its glory!
