Seriously?You guys never saw this? =\

Why was this down rated?People have been discussing this picture since Blizzcon.I have a lot of faith in wow.com and to think they did a slowpoke on us is a little disheartening.Only thing I don't have faith in is the horrible comment system.I never post any more because I always get rated down for no good reason.

The comment system is basically a popularity contest. People often downrate when they disagree, rather than when your comment is off-topic or offensive.

Link me to an article like this.

maybe it was downrated because it has zero value as a comment, it adds nothing to the discussion.also, just because this isn't news for you it doesn't mean it isn't for everybody.

I'd never seen it elsewhere

To those that didn't see this before, just visit forums like EJ. This exact explanation was provided on Blizzcon Day 1 or Day 2 by one of the posters there. Sure it is not an article but then again, EJ is a forum, not a news site so I think it's valid.Thing is, this has been on the Net for quite some time now, and not just on EJ forums.

Yeah this image + this explanation has been bouncing around ever since Blizzcon. It's fairly well known but it's about time WoW.com official recognized it, skeptically, as it should be.

Having followed blizzcon news fairly closely, I had a pretty good idea of what would happen and had seen a few basic maps for how things would be laid out, but this exact map with this level of detail was new to me. I mean, everyone and their mother knows that the barrens is getting completely overhauled, but I never heard anything about an instance in 1000 needles.

This image adds a little more info to the same map: http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n219/leviathonlx3/CataclysmAzeroth.jpg

I personally hadn't seen this before.... but, just to play devil's advocate....08-24-2009: http://www.mmo-champion.com/general-discussions/look-at-this-map-from-blizzcon-it-shows-which-zones-are-totally-redone/ "it looks to me that green largely corresponds to zones without major revamps, yellow are medium revamps, and red are major revamps"

08-25-2009: http://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?t=469817&page=4"No idea what the colors mean, but the current guesses are blue is expansion, red is major changes, yellow is medium changes, green is leveling changes. Yellow stars are dungeons, red stars are raids."
08-29-2009: http://www.scrollsoflore.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5033 "Green: Minor changes like quest texts and objectives etc. Perhaps a new flight path or camp in zones with weird layout. Yellow: Medium changes. Medium terrain change. Like Northern Barrens and Desolace. New quests etc.Red: Completly changed with much new terrain, quests, settlements and mobs etc."
08-31-2009: http://worldofraids.com/forums/showthread.php?t=24904 "Blue = New stuff. Seems obviousRed = Cataclysm changes at a high levelYellow = A lot/medium cataclysmic changesGreen = Little to no changes"

And lastly:10-19-2009: http://worldofraids.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25476&page=2 "Red - Massive revampYellow - Medium amount of changesGreen - Little to no change"Are any of these 'articles'? Not really, but there aren't that many WoW sites that communicate in that format, so that's not a very fair standard.

Just because WoW.com has sub par research doesn't mean its readers do as well.OH SNA-AP

Continue downrating the ones that mention that this "news" is old, Wowinsider fanboys. I'm sure you'll get your cookies soon. In the meantime, you might want to take a look at something called "objectivity." Try and practise it sometime.
