Eat your poutine and pipe down. ;DHonestly, I agree. I really wanted a moose pet for the last Olympics. I still do.However, Canada doesn't bring the subscription numbers that China does. I'm not saying Blizzard takes this into account, in part or in whole, as a reason for doing the pets, but if it WERE the reason, the 12 Canadians (seriously, aren't there only like two dozen people up there anyway?) who play WoW might not be enough of a reason for them to pursue it.Realistically, back when they did the pet for the Olympics, there wasn't as much going on at Blizzard. Wrath was still quite some time into the future, Diablo III was barely a twinkle in Mike Morhaime's eye, and even Starcraft 2 was just a hope for down the line. Making a pet was a pretty simple thing to fit into the mix.Oh, and just to clarify, I love my Canadian friends, and my above comments are all said with a wink and a nod. I don't want to get the Mounties sent to scold me or something... (Mounties? You guys really ARE a rather non-threatening people, aren't you?)
