WoW: Anal jokes back in trade chat - the memes about boosting and cross faction

image

Although there were no big announcements about the new WoW expansion or similar last week, Blizzard dropped two bombs: They are finally cracking down (or something) on boosters and after patch 9.2 of Shadowlands, faction borders will be dissolved. This left the WoW community in shock and ecstasy in equal measure.

Boosting will still exist, just maybe not in such an organized way. One of the biggest benefits of this is that you can now use trade chat for trading anal-joke spamming again, instead of being constantly inundated with boosting offers. Of course, the most fundamental change will be the cross faction gameplay in instanced areas of the game. The WoW community is letting their emotions out, as they so often do with big announcements, with memes that we don't want to deprive you of.

Once cross-folk play is unlocked, Alliance is likely to boom again and some will make their Horde character an Alliance player instead of leveling them. Blizzard is thus very likely expecting mighty big bucks via character services like faction and race switching.

Boosting community? No, we are a guild

Advertising through the trade chat beyond all servers is nonetheless forbidden, and thus nonetheless a severe punch in the pit of the stomach of boosting services.
