Dec 6th 2010 10:40AM @hagbard We get that you're upset that the fun event that you loved so much ended early. I hope you get that some people did not have as much fun as you during that event. The event is over now whether anybody likes it or not. Let's cut the bickering, please, it was old the first time and rehashing it isn't going to solve anything.

Dec 6th 2010 9:40AM It's true that I won't reminisce about the Cata pre-launch event, but I also don't reminisce about the Wrath pre-lauch event because of how aggravating it was. Even my awesome "defending Khadgar's familiar from the ravening horde" story, I don't remember without a shudder. The massive amounts of BS I had to put up with for one cool story make it considerably less enjoyable to remember.
Dec 6th 2010 9:35AM Sure, I'll bite.
Dec 6th 2010 9:26AM I suppose it would be more clear to say that I thought the Cataclysm event was better designed to avoid problems with griefing and smack talking from people of the "same faction." The Cataclysm event may not have been as fun because it wasn't player-driven, but at least there wasn't the massive griefing, QQ, and counter-QQ. Between the people who didn't want their routines disrupted (perfectly valid in its own way), the people who wanted others to come play with them or wanted to be jerks, and the ones who wanted the other two sides to shut up, the event got old. I'd rather deal with a little boredom than constant "SHUT UP NOOBS, YOU CAN GO DO YOUR CHORES LATER", "WHY DID YOU KILL THE AUCTIONEERS AGAIN? THE FLIGHTMASTERS ARE DEAD, I CAN'T LEAVE!", and "LET'S ALL JUST CALM DOWN FFS!" I liked the Cataclysm event better because it was hugely less frustrating, not because it was cooler.
Dec 6th 2010 9:07AM If I'm remembering correctly and recognizing the style--and I may not be--Rylka is being serious because PvP tends to cause a great deal of anxiety on his/her part. I remember that there was a post from someone (and I THINK it was Rylka, though it's been so long that I don't know and of course the forums are gone) asking that Blizzard put up a warning next time there was going to be non-consensual PvP on a PvE server.
In any case, there are people with valid dislikes of the event because of problems enjoying change on their end. Some people on the autistic spectrum, for example, find unplanned change to be extremely upsetting. Others find that PvP upsets them for other mental health reasons. If I'm not mistaken, that is what Rylka is talking about.
