A question for The Queue: after our "experience" (or lack thereof) with Dance Studios in Wrath and Path of the Titans in Cata, do you guys think any feature will get cut from MoP?Personally, I don't know why, but I have this knack that we won't be seeing these "PVE Scenarios" after all. I mean, it was easily the least hyped feature at Blizzcon; you hardly saw anyone excitedly discussing it, and even Blizz has been pretty silent about it (granted, they've been silent about lots of MoP-related things, but they did at least mention the new talent system, pet battles and a few other features from time to time).Besides, after the huge effort that went on revamping the old world in Cata, and Blizz now stating, time and again, that one of their main goals for MoP is "giving players lots of stuff to do" (which one would assume could be completed with "at max level"), I just have this feeling that someone in the development team is gonna say "screw this, I'm not gonna spend my precious development time going back to the old world and adding Scenarios for those leveling zones!"

The scenario thing appears to be aimed at giving players more to do at the level cap, rather than simply revamping old levelling content. A sort of PvE Battlegrounds, if you will. As such, it's right in line with their stated goals for the expansion.Impossible to say what they might drop, this early in the process. I think they'd have a riot on their hands if they were to lose 'World of Pokecraft', for example. Perhaps we'll have a better idea of things after the MoP PR blitz in March.

Kind of two different things there: Dance Studio was promised but has never officially been cut. In theory, it could be patched in tomorrow. The Path of the Titans was announced but officially withdrawn.

I agree that Dance Studio has never "officially" been cut, but that's beyond the point, I think. The point is that developers thought about it hard enough to let it "leak" to the public, and later changed their minds about it.

I've been thinking there might be something to be scrapped too. Not sure what it would be at this point. Maybe the new talent system. Although the version they have now seems like it will be the most adaptable system they have had yet (although we heard that before). I hope it is not pet battles. That seems like "The" feature of the expac. Well outside from rolling pandas :p I think PvE scenarios will be more like the Thrall questline. Although I do believe they said it would be instanced. So that should be interesting too. I hope everything makes it in as planned, if not right away- at some point during the expansion. Either way- unless it makes it to the Beta and I play it- I won't be too sad if it gets cut.

@Red From what I heard they put "Dance Studio" as one of the features on the box. That is hardly the developers, "Leaking it".
