I don't appreciate how Blizz drops this bomb without any further explanation. They previously stated the mounts would remain. Would it have been that hard to add an extra few words, a sentence even, giving more explanation and/or details?

Perhaps they meant the mounts will remain... but you can't get them any more, kind of like the Amani war bear?

They won't remove mounts from your spellbook. They will remove them from loot tables.My original comment was supposed to express frustration at the lack of any other information.

I have to admit, I'm a little taken back by all these comments demanding explanation for the removal of Zul Gurub.I remember the days when the only information in a game company's forum was Tech support issues and FAQs. As spoiled as we have gotten with the amount of communication between customer and company we receive nowadays, you need to remember that they don't technically have to explain any of their decisions to us.I'm sure they will give an explanation eventually, of course. Blizzard rocks that way - They are at the forefront of keeping their customers aware of changes to the game, along with the reasoning behind those changes. But still, I'm a little shocked that people feel entitled to have the "Whys" when we should just be thankful we are getting the "Whats" at all.

@arturis If your cable company removed your favorite channels without notice or reason would you be upset? Blizzard is a company selling service to us, the paying customer. We absolutely deserve notice and an explanation.

@meWe did receive notice, or else this conversation wouldn't exist. ^_^If you step back and look at the overall situation, though, the comparison between Blizzard and a Cable company is a little off the mark. Yes, they are both paid services, but we did not sign an agreement listing every raid, dungeon instance, and zone that Blizzard will offer us in exchange for our monthly payment. The service you pay for is one entity - World of Warcraft - and they are allowed to modify that entity in any way they want, including adding and removing content, without having to justify their decisions to us. The fact that they do chose to inform us of what they are doing and why is completely their prerogative and not enforced by state or federal law.My point is, and has been, to appreciate the information we get in blue text, but try not to feel entitled to it.

I agree wholeheartedly. You don't drop a bomb like that and not say WHY. That's just rude.And as my boyfriend would say, it's a prime example of how they're pretty much just shitting on the community.Sigh... as the months go by, I am starting to look forward to this expansion less and less.
