World of Warcraft July 26th Hotfixes

World of Warcraft - Battle for Azeroth Logo

Another day, another World of Warcraft Hotfix, the developers are currently busy around the clock dealing with the aftermath of the Battle for Azeroth Fix pre-patches. Meanwhile, the displeasure of the gaming community is increasing.

The tons of bugs and balance problems are not exactly what World of Warcraft players are used to from Blizzard. Of course there are always problems after such large patches that need to be improved, but many of the bugs that are currently being fixed are already on the public test server been known.

So the frustration of the fans is mainly focused on Blizzard that Feedback seemingly ignored the test phase and still played the half-finished one on the live server. The times when Blizzard preferred to accept delays and focus on quality seem to be over in the eyes of many fans.

With the upcoming release of Battle for Azeroth on August 14th Blizzard is of course under time pressure, as larger in-game events are planned beforehand.

The German patch notes for the last round of World of Warcraft hotfixes can be found below:
