More hotfixes for BCC and Classic Era!

Burning Crusade Classic
Brewfest is again up and running on all realms, and will end at 23:59 server time tomorrow, October 5. Developers’ note: We initially set up Brewfest 2021 in Burning Crusade Classic to run for the same duration as it ran in 2007 in original Burning Crusade, but we’ve decided to bring it back for another day.

Fixed an issue where some spells were missing visual effects.
All "pre-made" groups will again be allowed to queue for Battlegrounds with the next weekly Burning Crusade Classic reset in each region.
With the next weekly Burning Crusade Classic reset in each region, all “pre-made” groups will again be allowed to queue for Battlegrounds.
After this hotfix, grouped players will primarily face opponents who queued in groups of similar sizes and the matchmaker will now match raid groups of 6 or more players against at least one group of 6 or more players.
If the total number of players in your raid is smaller than the maximum size of the Battleground, the matchmaker will automatically fill your side with other groups or individuals. If there are no large pre-mades in the queue, party groups of 5 or fewer players will be placed against other parties of 5 or fewer players.
Please note: Queuing alone or in small parties will not guarantee an opposing team with no large pre-mades.
Brewfest is back for an additional day after Blizzard extended its duration!

Blizzard have announced a change to the minimal global cooldown reduction after haste, coming with this weekly reset:
GCD Change (Source)
With scheduled weekly maintenance (7:00 a.m. PDT, Tuesday, September 28 in this region), Spell Haste will now lower the global cooldown (GCD) to a minimum of 1.0 second. It has been possible for players to approach a minimum of 0.75 seconds since Burning Crusade Classic launched.
This hotfix is intended to bring the behavior of the GCD in line with version 2.4.0 of Burning Crusade, which the gameplay conditions of Burning Crusade Classic 2.5.2 are based on. Due to a bug in the original 2.4.0 code, players with high Spell Haste in original Burning Crusade were sometimes able to cast certain spells less than second apart, and they would also sometimes be delayed to over a second, based on how their actions were lining up with the server’s tick rate.
With this hotfix, we’ve decided that the fairest and most accurate thing we could do is to replicate the intent of the original game and enforce that Spell Haste cannot reduce the GCD below 1.0 second.
Thank you for all of your feedback on this issue.
Well, they've done it now, as the peaceful Naaru in the center of Shattrah has been provoked into violence! In a truly hilarious (and brilliant) series of events starting with a bug, players have managed to get the luminous A'dal to move from his pedestal and start a beat down on, well, an invulnerable Terokk.
First let's take a look at the hilarity on action, then we'll talk about just how exactly it happened (as spotted by BradBlondeBeard) :
So what the hell is happening? Well Terokk's Downfall quest is currently bugged so you can't actually kill Terokk once he uses his invulnerability shield (as a flare that removed it doesn't trigger. And, of course, players being players decided to use this to their advantage, as apparently Terokk also doesn't have a leash, they decided to bring him to Shattrah to see the sights. Except one of the sights was A'dal and he just started wailing on invulnerable Terokk. The kicker? If the player that brought Terokk in dies, the two NPCs will remain in an endless combat loot, since A'dal is ALSO invulnerable.
Now THIS is creative use of game mechanics and whoever thought of it should get rewarded somehow! Also, this isn't the first time A'dal got his hands dirty, as he's been known to eliminate all comers ever since the original Burning Crusade:
As you can see, Terokk is VERY lucky to have his invulnerability shield! Is this the "eternal conflict" Malthael keeps going on about in Diablo?
