Personally, yeah, I've given up on classes that blizz broke because I know if I wait long enough they'll come back and fix them. Blizz themselves have said repeatedly they follow a cycle, where sometimes one is up and one is down. Sooner or later they'll switch it back around so why knock yourself out if you have an alt at cap? Honestly for the casual player this doesn't mean much. If people love or hate a class they'll follow their personal desires regardless. But did anyone bring a shadowpriest to MC back in the day? If you didn't raid, there wasn't much incentive to play one beyond lvl cap.

Jan 20th 2009 3:34PM Well, if you look at it from the perspective that without you they wouldn't be in business then yes, you are their boss.
I think the point is that in any other time-sensitive industry publishing a deadline for delivery to the public and then repeatedly missing it would be considered a very bad thing. With computer games it seems to be considered a gold-standard if you can deliver it within a day of your published deadline. And if you're really wondering go try it with your boss, your teachers or your raid leader.
Oh sorry, can't make the raid by 7 - I'll be there around 9.. hold my spot!
Jan 20th 2009 1:52PM Yeah no super big surprise there eh?
Once again they fail to meet their own deadlines. I know a lot of ppl say quit the QQ but honestly - if I told my boss I would be 2 hours late every time I had a deadline because things didn't go as planned I'd be spending a lot more time on mmorpgs
Nov 12th 2008 10:00AM Absolute Nonsense. Wow is literally rife with numerous examples of items players were able to keep following "exploits" or more appropriately "screw ups" on Blizzard's part. The ghost wolf pet and mojo are merely two examples.
IMO an exploit is when you swim out to the magical GM Island or find a way to tag Ony from a perch in her room where her attacks can't reach you.
Additionally, taking the absurd stance that players are at fault for this downtime or that they are doing something despicable is juvenile and something I'd expect from trade channel trolls. So Bliz made a booboo, big whoop. Get off your soap box and get over yourself. Not only has Bliz allowed such things to fly in the past they have repeatedly reduced the requirements for players to reach level-cap. It's easy to see why people took advantage and honestly, how is this really any different than any of the previous screwups Bliz has inadvertantly caused?
If Blizzard makes the mistake they can correct it or not. Like everyone here is saying, the gear will be all but worthless come WOTLK anyway, so why not let people keep it? Some of us do collect sets for nostalgia. Besides, what good comes from removing it when the company has a history or leaving such mistakes go?
Did I? yes, on my level 59 priest . Did I expect to keep it? No, Do I NEED it, No. Do I care if I can keep it? Not in the least, but I'm dead sick and tired of Bliz flip-flopping on these issues. People got mojo, and the dog and lots of other things since Wow launched, why the heck wouldn't people try to keep some gear if it helps them,
And if any of you soapbox whiners remembers, when BC went live it was hit or miss as to whether or not you could log in the first week. So if history tells us nothing more than that you should fully expect to be completely frustrated over the next week or two.
