    Kind of annoying how the pressure was on for blizzard and they just release classic and bam their investors are happy because MONEY!! My only hope is they apply this to retail. My thought are remove flying all together for current expansion at ALL times and remove LFG for heroics and ALL raids. That way casuals can still Q for the basic groups.

    Lot of people I think may have paid real money for their flying mounts. I sincerely doubt Blizzard can brazenly remove flying after selling mounts to people. It would be a cause for great consternation and protests.

    Blizzard has been swamped with complaints and threats of sub cancellation so they are throwing in the towel and releasing the battlegrounds early.

    There are alot more casuals then there are serious raiders so that would definately backfire for Blizzard wont happen.

    They already tried that in WoD and it backfired greatly, thus is why pathfinder was born.

    Kinda sad lot of people got pressured into going on PvP servers cause they we're told it's the "true" experience. If you're not in a guild with good structure and competent people it can be the worst time ever. Half these servers are going to become ghost towns cause of severe faction imbalance or that a few guilds are so hardcore they control the world and all it's resources.

    Will give it another couple months until people get bored and frustrated and Blizz starts closing most of the servers.

    That is what's cool about wow.... else it just becomes a grind simulation. ( or any game..)
    Should invent ways to help the server imbalance, if it's purely because of numbers. Like xp boost for new players.. extra events... and power buffs in certain areas...

    Basically clicking away text windows ruins every MMO, try to have fun instead of rushing things. Without story and lore all there is left is a bunch of mechanics.

    This is the reason the BGs are being released early. Horde knows no moderation and are trying to drive players off their server

    Meanwhile on my RP-PVE server we're having great, fun and honorable battles in Hillsbrad where we let eachother res and regroup in between. Good times.

    Warcraft is a strategy game about gaining and holding territory for resources, not esport battles for loot. They got it wrong (again).

    Vault-Tec analysts have concluded that the odds of worldwide nuclear armaggeddon this decade are 17,143,762... to 1.

    Few MMOs get PvP right without sacrificing PvE entirely

    I dislike LFG as much as the next surly curmudgeon who can remember life before Patch 3.3, but how will removing this feature make it easier to group?

    Oh no, those poor Allies! A single tear rolls down my cheek.

    I just spent two hours on Kromcrush in Searing Gorge on my 50 Orc Warlock trying to finish up the last few quests in the zone. Want to guess how many times I was ganked by roaming bands of lvl 60 Allies?

    It was stupid to not launch with BGs in the first place. But, putting in the PvP gear without BGs was even more stupid.

    People always blame Horde for this kind of behavior and conveniently pretend Alliance doesn't do the exact same thing know servers where they can.

    Definitely true but right now most servers have a Horde majority so this is what is happening to many Alliance players. It is far worse this time round because each server is holding 4 times the number they used to in Vanilla. Therefore the situation is far more unbearable.
