"The portals are gone! Run for your lives! Actually, I don't really care -- that's what mages are for, right?"Oh, no you didn't. :P

There has already been one huge argument on another article about mages and portals.

I actually give portals away for free. Hell I will track people down just to give them a portal before other mages can when I am bored.I get annoyed that being in the LFD queue means I can't distribute ports. With the Org bank roof going away in Cata I have no idea what I will do during such wait times (hopefully someone will make a minecraft addon).

"There has already been one huge argument on another article about mages and portals."Oh, I know. I've seen it. That's my point. :)I know that this article was probably in the publishing queue before that rage explosion occurred, but still thought it was funny to see McCurley throwing a little gasoline on it.

I hope all of my mage comments are coming across as tongue-in-cheek, which is their intention.

As a mage I'm looking at the portal removal as the new frontier of portal roulette, I will promise you that you will end up somewhere. . .

"I hope all of my mage comments are coming across as tongue-in-cheek"They certainly are, even if you did forget the almighty winkey-smiley-face. That thing is like a get out of jail free card.

Er... How do you "argue" about mages and portals? Is there some kind of thing wrong here? Do they have a monopoly that no one else has? Is that it?IS IT UNACCEPTABLE TO TAKE AWAY PORTAL FROM A GROUP OF PLAYERS WHO ARE SO LAZY THEY WOULD DO ANYTHING TO MINIMIZE THE TIME BETWEEN PHAT LEWTZ?Portals are convenient, not necessary.

I admit, I lol'd, thinking exactly the same thing. Remember when the announcement about Tree form in Cata came out and people were fighting about it in the comments of like, every single column for about a week? Good times.

I for one welcome our new Mage overlords.

theRaptor: "hopefully someone will make a minecraft addon"That would be awesome

I wish they would make the portals in the Temple of Earth for Org and SW clickable for both alliance and horde. I would camp at the portal drop point and wait for a lowbie alliance to come through and pee himself as my felhunter rips off his arms. /giggle...

"IS IT UNACCEPTABLE TO TAKE AWAY PORTAL FROM A GROUP OF PLAYERS WHO ARE SO LAZY THEY WOULD DO ANYTHING TO MINIMIZE THE TIME BETWEEN PHAT LEWTZ?"Don't forget the players who are just too lazy to WALK IN GAME to a flight master, and would rather spend over an hour asking for a portal from Stormwind to Ironforge. lol I can never decide whether to laugh at them, or facepalm when that happens.

WTF....go to a flight master to get to IF? Why the f!@# would you do that for a 5 minute flight when you can just take the tram? Its faster.

Now I might actually have a reason to transfer my 80 Mage to my main's server and faction...In all seriousness, though, this is a classic example of Bad Game Design. If your players aren't spending time in the cities you want them to because another city has better features, the quick, easy, bad, and wrong response is to remove the other city's extra features. The longer, harder, good, and right response is to modify the cities you THINK they should spend time in so that the players actually WANT to be there.

hrmm... I guess, anyone know if the portal for QD is still there, or did that go as well?
