Another example of the inflated sense of entitlement a lot of players have in this game. If the devs have a preliminary decision, then change their mind, so be it. It's their game. Other games I've played, the situation would have played out as follows: Players see ghost wolf is tamable, tame it. No one says anything about it, then devs decide it's bad, change it, take away the pets, and nothing is announced at all, to anyone about anything, other than maybe a vague patch note item. No, they weren't out of line. No, they aren't screwing players over. No, it's not 'unacceptable' that they 'gave their word'. No, absolutely not. This is the first game I've seen with such direct and SWIFT interaction with the community, spanning several genres. Blizzard doesn't need to get their act together, the players need to go outside and do something else to get some perspective.

Poppycock! Yes, it may be Blizzard's game but WE pay for it. Yes they can do things as they please, but if they ignore their paying customers they will soon be out of business. Do you still play the other games with the same devotion as you do for Warcraft? Possibly, but not likely. Are the other games as world-renowned as Warcraft? Doubt it. Blizzard's game has become popular not only because of their deep storyline and unique gameplay, but also because of their service to their customers. There's no reason they should just stop listening to their players just because "it's their game".

Then it's THEIR money for their "mistake". Why are you complaining?

I think you're misunderstanding; I'm saying the overinflated sense of entitlement is because of not realizing how GOOD we have it. No, I don't play the other games exactly because of the lack of involvement, involvement which Blizzard does a WONDERFUL job of. Using this 'debacle' to say that blizzard DOESN'T listen to their customers is complete hogwash. Getting riled up over such minute details that don't match your exact view of how every element of this game should play out is evidence of losing track of how much of this game IS changed to match what the customer is after. As long as blizzard continues to improve the game as a whole, complaining over the loss of a new wolf skin just seems childish.
