Why does World of Warcraft not have it's own forum on giantbomb?

This topic is locked from further discussion.

It's not about whether or not we like the game, it obviously has some followers on this site. Everyday on the main page it's in the top 2 of games played that day, so why doesn't it have it's own "popular" board?

inb4 people who shit on WoW players to make themselves feel better about their own pathetic lives

because while it may be a very popular game on the site, it is not constantly talked about by the community

Popular games boards are generated dependant on how many posts and activity occur on them, it's not the staffs choice, it's the publics. A lot of people play WoW on here, sure. We just don't discuss it enough.
 
This is the best you're gonna get

To find a game's forum, you go to the game's page and on the left side bar there is a Forum tab.

This. On the page of the game you want to view the forum (Grammar) of, look to the left. There's various tabs, the bottom is forums.

Because they're playing the game.

Because WoW is evil, and having a separate forum for WoW would be like having separate forums for Satan. Oh, wait.

What? There is a forum. Everything has a forum as soon as it's created. There's a WoW page and, by extension, a forum.

I've been playing WoW for 5 years and almost all of the members use the official Blizzard forums to talk about the game.

You know nothing of barrens chat. I played that game since Beta. I stopped a bit before BC. Then started again two months after BC release. Played for 4 months. And got sick of it.  
 
And now Blizzard has ruined their own game. Micro transactions and that crap.

I actually do I play on the Alliance but I have a few Horde characters too. I still love the game but I'm waiting for the expansion so I can play it again.

Ive played both sides. Alliance has more "younger people" Which is a fact. Horde have more older people. It is a fact. A study was done a wile ago about it. However both sides are equally childish. And the Horde people just have more curses when they get mad. Lol. 
 
The game is dead to me none the less.

I know Horde are more mature cause of the age demographic, but I still love the Alliance, been playing on it ever since the game was released.

"More mature" is not the best term to use" Older" is better.  
 
I got to play back in the beta. It was fun. Sadly its changed to much.

Thank you. I've met some very polite players that were under the age of 14 in my 5 years playing World of Warcraft. The most immature assholes I've encountered in that game were all around the age of 28.
