No ABK earnings call for Q4 “due to the pending MS acquisition”. WHY??

WoW cross faction grouping coming in 9.2.5:

Real ID or BattleTag friendships needed to use this feature.

Only premade grouping will be able to use this feature.

Instanced content only.

Some content might need to be reworked due to heavy faction specific content, ICC, Battle of Dazaralor.

All legacy content will be included eventually.

Expanding this feature might be in the future, incl. “things like” cross faction guilds.
