    HAHA. Lady WORGEN dance! No! no, stop. Oh my god hahahahaha. this is so bad. lol

    (I'm sure they meant that the gay players see lady gaga as a beacon of gay light and hope, so to speak. Like a figure head or something. and that having a dance by her in the game its some kind of victory for gay culture or something like that...)
    This is overly off topic.

    Bisexual has as much to do with homosexual culture as it does with heterosexual culture. If the gay community are looking for a figurehead, they would look to someone who is strictly gay... not a fence sitter.

    ...and by the looks of it, she has sat on many of different fences.

    You might have missed the point of that website entirely. Not being a negative Nancy might help though.

    Can they nerf ally racials any more? They may as well remove ours or just add them to hordes, I mean why not? The comments at blizzcon made it clear where their favor lies.

    Gnome- 5% increased int, nerfed to 5% increased mana
    Human- Every man for himself is essentially gone, now on a 3mins cd. Any PvP'er worth his salt will take the trink on a 2mins cd instead.
    +all the ones listed above.

    Where are the nerfs to Blood Fury and berserking.

    Orc= 5expertise no ally has 5 expertise with any weapon as a racial

    Goblem= free bank access anywhere and lowest prices from all vendors AND haste buff which is MUCH better than crit buff
    Worgen= free skinning knife, crit buff, lame

    Why can't blizzard have a constant with the developers? If they do it doesn't feel like it.

    Diablo: We don't want PVP to drive our PVE experience. When we balance a skill we do not nerf, we ask ourselves; "How can we make this lesser skill better?

    World of Warcraft: "Hey look this rogue's getting nuked by a priest; let's just nerf priests into oblivion and not care what it does to the PVE system until they whine about it."

    In my honest opinion, I think arena seasons are just a trick by the devs into getting the PVP nerds to think there's an endgame for arenas and possibly battlegrounds too.
