Mar 28th 2012 12:32PM Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against it, but the new Pet Battles system probably isn't something I'll be playing extensively. It looks interesting, and I will undoubtedly check it out. But I will most likely be playing all the other new features too much to spend serious time with it.
Mar 18th 2012 6:35PM I'm not sure what is more devastating, losing Sentinel Hill after it's rebirth, or the fact that it will burn perpetually much like Stratholme even after the conclusion in Heroic Dead Mines.
There are a number of Alliance quests I refuse to complete on my main, simply because they reward irrevocable losses including the erasure of entire flight points.
Mar 6th 2012 5:21PM @Imnick: I'm not worried about getting both.
I'm worried about getting neither.
Mar 6th 2012 5:08PM @Imnick: They promised earlier expansions for a reason. The same reason they are still losing subscribers. Are you content to run the same raid and three dungeons every day for the next six months? Of course it isn't enough content.
Mar 6th 2012 4:59PM @Artificial: You are correct.
Blizzard has always used tactics like this, but there is a reason they are going overboard with them this expansion cycle. I wonder why that is?
Mar 6th 2012 4:36PM @Khirsah: I wasn't questioning their ability to make money, or their ability to make games, but rather, their ability to make money without making games. They're stringing their WoW subs along on hot air at this point. No new content within sight on the horizon.
Mar 6th 2012 4:29PM @Imnick: That was the point I was making. They are relying on gimmicks to keep subscribers rather than develop the content necessary to keep them. They are concentrating on staying afloat when they should concentrate on succeeding at what they do...making games.
Mar 6th 2012 4:12PM @Armill3: Believe me, if it wasn't for their financial benefit in the longrun, it wouldn't happen.
Mar 6th 2012 4:09PM Is that to say the offer will be scrapped by Mists? You don't think they will reconfigure it when the time comes?
Mar 6th 2012 3:49PM These Perks might be TOO irresistible. I can honestly foresee an incentive for some people to take an extended break before Mists just for the free level 80 monk.
I'm taking it into consideration.
