@Allison. Other than disagreeing with every single word you wrote this is a great article. How soon are you going to work for Blizzard? Have they already offered you a job? Your post is nothing more than the Blizzard line fleshed out in more detail. Ghostcrawler could have written your post and I would not have known the difference. What I criticizing here is what I see as a lack of balance in the OP. Your post doesn't come across as an even-handed "what are the pros and cons" but a strident defense of Blizzard's design philosophy. It doesn't show any sophisticated understanding of why people enjoyed the TOL or why they are sorry to see it go. It's advocacy under the guise of journalism and that's disappointing to see. I expected better.

Yeah, I especially liked this part:"The tree, for better or worse, is a casualty of both."So the tree was a casualty of Blizzard design. Nice.I'm going to have to agree with Daniel here. I of course expect to be downvoted. But when you seem to be almost OK with tree-form becoming CD and the other forms staying the way they are, I don't see how anyone can see this as a good thing. AGAIN, the druid is a shapeshifter. Treat all forms the same. You discriminate against one, you should discriminate against the others, too.
