Blizzard’s April Fools 2019

Blizzard has, of course, been up to their usual amazing self during this year’s April Fools’ Day activities. The community has gotten in on the fun, too. The highlights:

We’ll keep this post updated as more come in.

World of Warcraft

Out of the Blizzard Patch Notes, clearly the best thing is Findr, which I’m not sure is that off the mark…

• Glance at a player’s gear and achievement points for 3 seconds (maximum) before making a snap judgment about how well they’ll tank your Mythic Keystone run.
• Swipe right to request a match and immediately send a party invitation.
• Swipe left to completely dismiss the player’s entire existence; this is completely anonymous, distancing you from the other player’s growing vortex of self-doubt.
• Once a match has been made, option to not message them right away, which makes it look like you’re super busy and use Findr all the time.
When the time is right, gather your new groupmates together, and head off to whatever adventures lay in store!

We’re keeping an eye out for more, but let us know your favorites in the comments below!
