Jan 26th 2012 7:06PM I totally agree
to summarize : blizzard authors love to write for big muscular green men. They think of alliance like vanilla fantasy, pink human without flavor, unable to use dwarf, gnome, nocturnal elve and space goats to go away from Dungeons&Dragon (or Tolkien) style.
in truth, Blizzard think it can create and be fun with Horde.
Cataclysm was only historical Alliance places lost and removed from game but Horde winning new architecture, new place, very good lore (forsaken for example) or a whole goblin region (where is the whole worgen zone ? not it's not Gilneas)
The point is : no one was caring for torajo, it was a little setting with just a few pnj and typical tauren house. but if Bllizard remove Theramore, it will remove a great place, big, important, with Jaina , it should have been used for more.
Auberdine was crushed, and the new village is not the same (heck, they even didn't reimplement a boat..)
Stormind was badly hurt, a whole place removed. yes Stormwind is a lot improved, technically, but Orgrimmar is just totally improved and better in lore and technically, not ONE thing destroyed by an angry dragon.
in dun morogh, of course the cool dwarf dam was destroyed..
It's not about whatever the story justifying it or not, it's just obvious Blizzard has more ease to write fun and creative events with the Horde. They wrote for the alliance only "dramatic" destruction.
oh, and in my opinion, the goblins are a lot more integrated in warcraft, better made graphically, animation and all than worgen. The same for the first start zone (Gilneas has gothic flair, but it's not well made and again innovative than kezan/lost isles) .
To do forsaken quests to see the end of some worgen characters are just final insults.
all of that added, it's annoying.
Horde is where Blizzard know what to write and create.
Dec 13th 2011 2:36PM I think more options for characters, different body types would be an amazing thing !
Blizzard have good taste, for example the goblin female are cute and sassy, the draenei male is bold and noble, still, I need diversity, choice, it would inject a LOT of life in the game.
the more the character can be "special", the more players will be loyal to the game.
Dec 5th 2011 8:08PM hoho I know all about "people things", there are tremendous rude people everywhere.
but please, at MY age, with the thousand of stories I lived, no, you will not convince here there are no sexism again against a woman. Boys and men are huge drama king. the whole world is centered around them and girls are toys they want to treasure.
Dec 5th 2011 6:31PM my goodness, how much you take that game seriously...
if some _gamers_ are rude and blatantly asshole, you just have to kick them out of your game and meet OTHERS gamers. theyt are plenty.
Dec 5th 2011 6:25PM it seems here, the blatant source of drama are again boys.
Dec 5th 2011 6:24PM hu what ?
1: in that prude world some showing dress and VIRTUAL beverage is ERP ? you want to see WHAT is ERP ? okay I will do nOW HERE if you want. They are kids best to leave ALONE !
2: erp is fine, nothing which can't prevent to tank any stupid dragons. I would have leave that guild at the second.
3: I agree here again : that is blatant sexism. They see a girl first and want you to be their perfect tiny little sparkly treasure to love and all. aAAaaw... Leave these kids ALONE !
4: there's no four, I'm just very annoyed by these kind of rude attitudes.
Nov 1st 2011 10:52AM "Every time Blizzard tries to introduce "choice" we still theorycraft ourselves out of that choice. "
in truth, you know it's not CHOICE anymore. when some min-maxer find the "most efficient" way and put it on internet, it's no more choice, it's an obligation by your pairs.
It's no more fun, it's no more choice, it's no more a tree, just a stupid thing to clic to optimize after reading a forum on internet.
it's no more a video game, it's EXCEL.
"because if you are effective and having fun, it doesn't matter that you got to spend 5 minutes a month ago picking your talents."
it's NOT about time. Time to decide is fun. it's about CHOICE. ALL choice should be fun AND completely totally effective and NO ONE should be able to tell you "no.. you are a crappy player, you should take the one true dps-build for your class"
in fact, if you are right, Blizzard should remove entirely "talents", and just put whatever needed in pvp or pve.
sometimes, you totally forgot what is a video game : a game.
Nov 1st 2011 9:29AM "Dude, seriously, go have a beer or something."
come on, "burning hate of death wing", it's fun :)
you are too much serious.
okay, seriously : tree builds forced by min-maxers in raids was never fun and it's a good thing to remove that from a video game.
without less complaint of casual gamers, it will enable blizzard to keep heroic 25 raids.
It's easy to understand the problem : go read the official forums and you will see complaints and whines about lacks of choice in raids.
I'm pretty sure if blizzard kept the current design, they would have removed difficulty in raids.
Oct 31st 2011 9:51PM I hope with all the burning hate of death wing you will be wrong and blizzard will force you to stop min-max the game.
You are the anti-fun, you are the reason why difficult raids should be banished of the game.

I hope they will do that soon and beautifully. To be true to the old models is very important, female gnome, troll, male taurens and others have great style, but they need better animation, more details and all.
