I think I some ways the zombie plague went too far, and in some ways not far enough. It was really annoying to watch so many people getting in touch with their inner griefer. Watching 70's going into the starter zone just to infect lowbies, was uncalled for. To those of you who did it I call you out for being a bully plain and simple.On the flip side, I also had issues with people for example: who knew ahead of time that Stormwind was completely overrun with zombies yet they still got mad they the auction house folks were infected or dead. I mean come on, this was a natural disaster! Yet folks were trying to go about there business like nothing was going on, I didn't get that. Its like expecting the 7-Eleven being open during a hurricane. I actually had fun, because I felt like a survivalist staying away from infected zones and cleansing players who infected in far away places like Area 52. Where Bliz didn’t go far enough was the aftermath. After a natural disaster there is loss and a sense of devastation. Think of Katrina, and New Orleans. There should have been missing NPC's, shrines to the fallen, bonfires full of zombie corpses, etc.... You should have walked away from this event feeling like you survived *something*. Instead you just got go back to the auction house just like you did couple of days before. Bliz had the opportunity to really tell a compelling story with this event and really do something that no other MMO has done, instead you got: "Lolz, I zombied you nub stop QQing".
