For the Arcade, the biggest news is actually the open lobby list is *gasp* fucking finally REVERSED. In other words, older (probably "unpopular"/hard-to-fill maps) are at the top of list and newest lobbies (more likely to be "popular" maps) at bottom.

Also, it's now very easy to just scroll the whole list instead of "Show More" > scroll > "Show More" > scroll > etc.

So we finally got a non-shitty open lobby system. With HotS coming and no news before, I was quite under the impression they would just ditched the open lobbies as far additional efforts were concerned.

The reversed list? Seems unlikely to be a "bug" to me.

With the mindset they did seem have about the Arcade, why would they poke ANYTHING related the open lobbies except the obligatory UI changes due to changing other screens' UI? Heck, they would still have Blizzard All Stars to poke in an absolute higher priority.

Right now, the #1 complaint is the pause bug which if you pause then leave, any other player that unpause after will have the whole game of units frozen as if they were still in pause despite the unpause. I think currently more abused in 2v2+ where the losing team only need 1 of the 2 leave to do the deed. The worst is I think beta HotS also had the bug before WoL 2.0.4.

Otherwise, I barely heard any complaint about the reversed list case on the battle.net forums.

It's not about people complaining about it. Its that it flies against popularity.

Yeah, that would be more true.

Since Blizzard actually did the change, perhaps they *finally* realized that a popularity-only mentality is not the way to go at least 2 years later?

Anyway, if they just stick to that then ill honestly be happy. Normally, they should since 9 months is a ridiculous amount of time to notice that something is wrong and to notice the extend of the damage.
