Breakfast Topic: What would be your biggest Mists of Pandaria surprise? {WoW}

Mar 18th 2012 5:08PM The rebirth of dance studios from developmental hell.....

The Queue: Panda wasteland {WoW}

Mar 16th 2012 4:03PM will blizzard ever put the kabosh on dance studios, its been about 4ish years now and they keep saying one day in the future. I would assume at this point that the idea have been shelved, will blizzard ever admit they aren't going to get around to finishing the promised wrath feature?

Feb 27th 2012 4:17AM Is there any description of Old Stormwind? My understanding is that it was destroyed by the Orcs during the first war and then rebuilt afterwards on the ruins of the old city. Has blizzard ever described how the old Stormwind was planned/or laid out and would it have been divided into different districts like today's modern city? Would there be a map or picture out there of the old city and if you could theoretically dig beneath the modern city would you find ruins of the old city below much like cities in Europe like Rome or Athens, or was it so totally destroyed there was nothing left but rubble?

The last gasp of 25-man raiding {WoW}

Feb 24th 2012 4:26PM The 10 v. 25 debate always comes down to which is the more challenging. My server used to have several 25's raiding guilds, now we have only 1 with several 10's. The solution for fixing the problem of people not wanting to take the time for form a 25 isn't to hurt the 10's its either find a reason people should put forth the extra work to get a 25 going or just embrace that wow has changed. The player base obviously likes the easier access to raiding content a 10 provides and if the 25's are dying out then that has more to do with player preference than 10's being easier in the end. Different rewards will just create a ICC situation of 25's being superior and 10's feeling second rate.

Should Blizzard leave heroic encounter difficulty alone? {WoW}

Feb 22nd 2012 3:16AM I have no problem with it, every guild has a different level of play, some are like professional sports teams and others are like a local downtown softball club with many different levels in the middle. Blizzard keeps the statistics and once these professional teams clear it and they notice that the next few levels down begin hitting a wall sometimes even gear won't be enough to progress so a nerf or buff is the obvious solution. WOW has changed over the years and the population that plays it is very different. And let's face it, even with the buff going all the way to 20 percent there will still be VERY few guilds that see heroic deathwing dead. So let's not sweat it and if you kill it before the nerf, give yourself a good pat on the back and show off the achievement, (you earned it!) and let other guilds who aren't as good as you have their moment in the sun eventually too.

Feb 19th 2012 5:10PM I don't feel entitled, I've worked and scraped for everything I've
gotten in wow, titles, mounts, pets, achievements and gear; I just
think that my loyalty to blizzard means something. Yes I enjoy
playing world of warcraft but I also enjoy going to the movies and
after seeing 15 movies I get a free ticket to see whatever I want.
Why do they give me this, because I'm a loyal customer who is giving
them business in a repeat fashion and they want to reward me for doing
so thus encouraging me to come back and see more movies. The reason I
believe blizzard has never done the same is they haven't needed to due
to the constant influx of new people. In the past when a few leave
they've gained many more, they've never had to encourage the customer
to stay when they have kept the ball rolling. However now as we see
with the declining subscriptions they have begun to reward customers
who commit to a year's worth of game time. I don't see why it would
be a stretch to say, hey this person has paid for 5 years of world of
warcraft, let's send them a title or even a just a simple note in your
ingame mail saying, "Thanks for subscribing to World of Warcraft for 5
years, we appreciate your commitment to our game and your continued
business" Honestly that's just good business sense and something
blizzard should adopt.

Feb 18th 2012 3:05PM Why doesn't blizzard offer rewards to players who've subscribed to wow for a long period of time? I've had a regular subscription going on 7 years now soon and I feel its a bit of a slight since I've been so loyal to their product. Maybe a mount after 5 years of game time, or a free pet or something would be nice. At least would show that they appreciate your loyalty and business. I know other games do this why doesn't blizzard? After they just so large they don't feel they need to, or is there some other reason?

Feb 9th 2012 8:25PM Will random weather effects return for MOP? There hasn't been random weather in zones since vanilla and the only weather than has remained is used for thematic or dramatic effect. Will we ever see random weather return and why was it shelved for the last 3 expansions?
