Just because something worked for other companies doesn't mean it's going to work for Blizzard. Simple as that.As for whether I think Blizzard is wasting their time on things like the bear forms, I would have to say no. I'm not sure how many people work on WoW, but I'm dead certain they don't devote the entire team to one single project at a time. *grin* Also, from what we've seen from Ghostcrawler and the other devs, they have a lot on their plates, and not everything gets taken care of right away. So while we might not see progress on something for a long time - like the druid forms - that doesn't mean it's been dropped or is being ignored.And one other thing: personally, as an office worker and aspiring writer, I know better than to try to second-guess the production and workload of a company that delivers a game to twelve million people worldwide. *grin*

To follow this up a little.. these other games that come out with super amazing eyecandy or totally revamp the graphics, etc. How many of those games are still around? Not many.Game play and story are much more important than pretty pictures or pixellated boobies or whatever. (AoC sighted in the bargain bin for $10 now)

M, too much content in a short amount of time is what killed EverQuest, which was at one time the leading MMORPG.. But look at them now.. 10 years and 15 expansions later, they are about 1/3 of their highest customer base.. Yeah, let's force Blizzard to pump out content like Octomom for the few hardcore no-lifes and leave the casual gamers, which is the majority, behind.. Blizzard gets more money from casual gamers than hardcore gamers.. Even if the casual gamer doesn't play, they're still paying monthly..
