I was still pretty much a raw noob when AQ opened up on my server, still playing solo, not even in a guild, so I missed out on the run up ("What are all these boxes in Ironforge for?" "Why are there only five quest-givers in Silithus?") but the event itself was truly awesome. I was questing in Winterspring when the server-wide announcement went out and I hurriedly took the gryphon down to Silithus, which was a madhouse.I really expected the start of Cata to be like AQ -- I expected Deathwing to come flying in while we were online and start destroying stuff. I have no idea whether it's possible to create such an event within the game, but I was massively disappointed when all that happened was we went to bed and the next morning -- poof! -- destroyed world. An (admittedly very cool) trailer just doesn't replace an immersive experience like AQ. I'd rather have the bugs and glitches than the antiseptic transition that was the Shattering. Maybe that's why I just can't seem to connect to the current expansion.

"hurriedly took the gryphon down to Silithus.."HAH! from Winterspring?? There is NO SUCH THING. roflI do know what you mean, and I can't imagine how frustrating it was for the lowbies who could never get there in time, if even survive to find a way there.Another big issue is to keep in mind the incredible selfishness/greed you see in a lot of the newer players these days... group cooperation and sacrifice? That's so 20th century :P
