    As Blizzard continues to work on Warcraft 3, we've decided to share about this Discord group. This is a team of dedicated Warcraft 3 enthusiasts / experts that are communicating with Blizzard (or their representatives) for the most essential things needed for the game to improve.

    Kam and PurgeandFire visited Blizzard HQ in 2016 to start the communication. Some time between 1.27b and 1.28a, most of the Extended Feedback Team formed. It was originally an effort for Hive to discuss the patches with Blizzard, but we've invited others from various communities and scenes to help with feedback in varying areas. Here is the current team:

    Hive Feedback Team (HFT)

    In addition to providing internal suggestions, everyone sourced valuable feedback from the community.

    For example, all of the melee guys gathered feedback from both the highest pros and the general community. We have organized threads on Hive detailing modding priorities and such. It's an intricate and busy process, and we couldn't have done it without the community providing constructive help. We really appreciate both Blizzard's and the communities cooperation, so thank you guys for that!
