May 18th 2009 11:10AM Vehicle Combat gets a meh from me. Aside from my usual latency complaints, I think it only appeals to those who were bored by the game in general and enjoy the novelty.
I could tolerate it much more if it was optional, where one could move toward an objective without having to do it (I'm looking at *you* Argent Tournament!)
Forcing it on players can be rather frustrating. Making it impossible to advance without doing them is worse. At least in Sons of Hodir, one could skip the spear quest and not be inconvenienced. You can't do it in A-T (for example) and go beyond Aspirant.
Not all players are good at button mashing games. Others may be good but hate doing them.
TL:DR- Blizz should make them optional, not mandatory.
May 18th 2009 12:04AM My Draenei does it as an act of discipline. The zen-like action of seeking the perfect cut.
Naturally such discipline carries over to her actions in honing her body for combat as an Enhancement Shaman. I give it a sort of martial arts approach.
May 16th 2009 12:56PM I think it's a case of wanting to get a chance to see the new stuff first hand, a free pet, maybe even the chance of getting a question answered.
I tend to be an introvert and avoid this sort of thing, but for those who want to do it and aren't neglecting their lives to do it, I hope they have fun

Would that make us WoWies? Will a hardcore offshoot called WoWers form off?
Can we piss them off like the Trekkies by making comparisons to Star Wars? ;-)

May 16th 2009 12:37PM Can I hope that with 10,999,999 people trying to get tickets I can farm Wintersaber rep in peace today? ;-)
May 16th 2009 12:35PM Kudos and GL to the three of you. I live in CA and have no plans to even try to get tickets
May 16th 2009 12:34PM Wish they'd at least get Armory up and running... I want to set up RAWR for my toon.
May 16th 2009 8:35AM No idea if it is coincidence or not, but when I converted over to battle.net I can get in to the game
May 16th 2009 12:27AM It will be up...
1) Soon (tm)
2) When it's ready (tm)
