World of Warcraft - Battle for Azeroth Logo

Since yesterday there were 2 hotfixes for World of Warcraft, both include Uldir changes and at the same time Blizzard is working on PvP.

While Blizzard is frantically trying to make mistakes, the criticism of fans getting louder. There was one on the r / games Reddit in the last few days Thread with over 1500 commentsdescribing the poor state of enlargement. Less than a month after the World of Warcraft expansion was released Battle for Azeroth It is becoming increasingly clear that the BfA would have needed a few more months of fine-tuning.

Then there was one last night AMA (Ask Me Anything) with World of Warcraft Game Director Ion Hazzikostas. In this, the problems are partly discussed and a major patch for the public test server is announced. More details on this should be in one Twitch Live Stream give:

"That patch will be coming to the PTR very soon, and we'll be doing a livestream on Tuesday, September 18 at 11am PDT on the World of Warcraft Twitch channel where we'll discuss the major pieces of content in the patch."

You can find the German patch notes for the 2 current hotfixes below:
