Draenei didn't get any new classes because there are too many of them, but they gave Blood Elves warriors.hmmm.....Logical fail

Yeah, Night Elves, Humans and Blood Elves are each 15%+ of the total WoW population. Draenei are 9%. Dwarves, Gnomes, Tauren and Trolls I can completely understand. They have the same or less amount of players as draenei.

I bet their logic was there weren't enough warriors, so they decided giving BE's Warriors would increase the Warrior population. They're probably right.

I mentioned the same thing earlier so I'll repeat the answer I was given here.Blizz wanted more Warriors and Mages around, so the most popular classes got them if they didn't already. Only reason we got so many spacegoats is because they were the only Ally class that could be Shamans and, according to GC, we need our Heroism.Not defending Blizzard, but it some ways it makes sense.

Well, Draenei and Dwarves. Though I'd really like them to roll out tattoos along with the dwarf shaman, so they actually look like Wildhammer dwarves.

Personally, I don't think Draenei NEED more classes. What could they possibly have? I play a Draenei and I hardly ever see other Draenei's (I'm on a RP realm, ERP Draenei's don't friggin count dammit).Look at Blood Elves, they're over-represented practically more than any other class and they still get more classes to choose from. The answer "there's too many space goats" is a bad one, I agree they don't need more but a better answer would have been "There's nothing for them to have."Don't mind the decision, just a bad statement to word.

I really didn't get it either..... Too many draenei? ummm blood elf? wtf?

Everyone seems to have this so very wrong. On the live stream, they said that draneis "CAN BE TOO MANY CLASSES ALREADY" NOT that there are too many draneis.

So does this mean Blizz thinks there are... Space Goats from Coast to Coast?

Even if the argument is that draenei can be too many classes, their logic still fails. Humans, trolls and blood elves all get just as many classes; all get a new option with this expansion.They should either give draenei a new class option (druid would be easiest to explain) or not give blood elves one. Simple as that. They are encouraging people to play not only the new races, but every established race except draenei...and tacitly discouraging any re-rolling draenei.It's more likely that someone in the development staff simply has something against the blueberries.
