im gonna regret saying this but
remember that multiyear long bug in WoW where npc dialog windows would just instantly close when you open them over and over and fucking over and people kept reporting it and one smartass blue poster was like NO ONES HAVING THIS PROBLEM GEE WHIZ SARCASM while sapperwix was like “uh. we’re gonna look into this. Something to do with caching. it should get fixed in a future patch” and then everyone was hoping it was 5.4 and it was still never fixed and tai wouldnt stop complaining about it and i was also very irritated by it and we were BOTH irritated by that one blue who just dismissed it and never bothered with it again (like at least Sapperwix is a professional blue! I like Sapperwix)
well i think it finally stopped. and considering 6.0.2-onwards uses a new file system that’d certainly clear up any caching issues. So this was the ‘future patch’. hooray (see im gonna regret this because itll magically start up again tomorrow just you wait)
…now the next horrible thing they need to fix is the whole “instances booting you rout randomly and then resetting” bullshit.
