SavedVariables folder in the wrong spot

Logging in when the servers are down (guess, might be something else) creates a "SavedVariables" folder on the account level of the WTF dir which is and always will be empty.

Yeah I started reporting this during MoP, figured I could just do that again for this dev cycle. I was already told that it's known but low prio but doesn't hurt to keep it around in this forum.

I was wondering if they had an idea to implement installation-wide data storage and either scrapped the idea or just didn't commit to it.

Is there anything actually IN the new folder? I had this happen on the PTR once (and on LIVE), but there was never anything in the folder. It's almost like the game had a "derp" moment.

It's always empty and "derp" pretty much sums it up.
