Wow. All the wowinsider trolls in favor of zombies are getting old. It is clear that the overwhelming number of writers are in favor; myself and the overwhelming number of people I know on my non-RP PvE server didn't like it. A lot. For reasons that are quite valid for us and not swayed by the number of blogs, especially when they seem to totally miss most of our objections. How many times must my level 1 bank alt die so selfish, jaded elitist players can have something different??? Grr.I doubt the people who liked it will spend more and the folks who hated it are certainly considering spending less, so Blizzard can decide in the future how much revenue they want to risk with similar events.

/signed on all counts.Not just 'level 1 alts' though. Sitting anywhere afk and the thing would pop without warning.Forced PvP is never good. Forcing it on people in places set up for other kinds of conduct, like a bank or auction house is even worse. Doing it without warning makes it yet again worse. Not disabling durability loss during the event is just inexcusable.Doing that right after a major patch and during another world event when people are in a state of confusion trying to get their guilds organized, their addons working, their action bars sorted out, repair broken macros, and so on... is yet again worse.Yeah, in a real world things happen that we can't avoid. But WoW isn't a real world. People pay to go in there, and they make choices when they do so. Those choices should not be blatantly disrespected. Being a participant in PvP or PvE has always been a choice, and one which people come to rely on.WoW's dev's showed us they have no respect for our choices, and the WoW community's outright rude hostility towards those who did not like this is showing an even uglier side to the issue, one way beyond any slight the dev's themselves may have committed.
