WoW Archivist: How each WoW expansion set the tone, part 2 {WoW}

Nov 14th 2011 8:14PM I agree with this one wholeheartedly. Deathwing was a non-factor after we got used to the new altered world, and the enemies we fought in the Tier-1 raids felt contrived, stuck in and flavorless.

There wasn't enough of him in the endgame, either. We knew he was out there and we all sat around going "Okay... So... Now what?" Rags coming back was nice, because it was hinted at, but I feel like there were several missed opportunities in tying in Deathwing to that realm and putting him in that story. Less of :"We're working for DW!" and more "Attack, my elemental minions, destroy them!"

That and the PVP aspects were ANYTHING but obvious on the Alliance side. As Horde, you're in the fray IMMEDIATELY in Twilight Spark-err Highlands (force of habit). As Alliance? You mopped up a few rogue agents and went about your business. It felt like combat against a completely rogue element and a KNOWN aggressive enemy completely unconnected with the Horde. We fought them before in the Wetlands, we read about them being horrid villains for what they did to the Red Dragonflight. I just never felt it.

You missed the point entirely. Pop culture references and other fun little extras, whether it be references to other games, television, celebs, whatever aren't what i mean by "emulating real life". That's art imitating life. There's a difference.

What I mean, is when an NPC starts talking about the finer points of what it's like to be a libertarian, or a boss wailing about his or her same-sex partner, it no longer becomes fun, it becomes a game of politics and injecting opinions that aren't needed.

Mar 10th 2011 11:38AM It's not even about having it "shoved in our faces" by various individuals, it's not. It's about bringing a real-life issue into a fantasy world where it simply doesn't belong. It's a perfectly legitimate view to share equality and have a particular flag carried by players to be shown off, but again, it doesn't belong in this game.

Though this is a particularly large flag carried by tens of thousands of WoW players, you have to draw the line here. Keep sexuality out of WoW.
