Say what you will about Blizzard, but they're one of the only companies I've ever heard admit that they've made a mistake.They're right. Silvermoon sucks.

Agreed, although they have a weirdly fanatical player base that will defend them if anyone dares to suggest that a designer might have made a mistake.It's not uncommon for someone on the official forums to say "Hey they should change X because X is kinda stupid.", only to be shouted down by others saying "Have you ever designed a game this complex? No! X is fine, and you're the one that's stupid."Next patch: "(BLIZZ) - We decided to change X, since X is kinda stupid."

@Ian: Paradoxically, the attitude you mention is more often seen by people attacking Blizzard than defending them. Any time Blizzard changes anything, these people come out of the woodwork insisting everything was perfect before, has never made any mistakes at all, and the only reason things are changing is because fans are idiots and Blizzard, despite being perfect in all ways, is too stupid to know when to ignore players' complaints.

Yeah, that's definitely the other side of the coin. However, the "It was perfect before" crowd is present in all games. I come from a heavy TCG background (WoW is my first MMO or even online game) and you just don't get the level of fanboyism I see in WoW. It's great, in a way, to see such passion from fans of a game, but at times it can get downright scary.

I'm a non-RPer and I really like Silvermoon. It's really pretty, it has two auction houses, etc. I hardly ever have to wait to use a target dummy and I can port right to Undercity to get to the zeppelins if my hearth is up. It's probably a bit too big, and the Bazaar area seems kind of pointless, but it's nice to be left alone and not have to deal with any lag.

I agree with you deluded spider. Silvermoon is my favorite city besides Stormwind. Their true failing when it comes to city design was Exodar.
