    I really hope that ancient pet is somewhat easy to get. With my team i cant even beat legendary pets lol.

    A war between GW2 and WoW, how so very MMO Championish. Especially since GW2 would win, hands down.
    (Just kidding.)

    But it would be hard to see the orc between two shoulderpads roughly the size of Stormwind.

    I'm betting the Pegasus is from pre-ordering hearthstone (pre-ordering a ftp game for said mount and probably some card packs and other non game play related perks/goodies) Also ignore the gw2 troll and just report, that exact type of behavior is expressly forbidden on these forums.

    Spotted this too - Blossoming Ancient (New) Right Click to summon and dismiss your Blossoming Ancient. This pet changes with the seasons. Battle Pet. Instant.

    so it'll just be one pet but it changes as the year progresses.
    How on Earth is this post considered trolling and how does it manage to get me an infraction? >_>
    Apparently the above is me starting a game vs game debate...

    You should've known better UnifiedDivide posts like that are not accepted on these forums.

    Obviously it's too constructive. Being productive isn't looked well upon around these part XD

    Jk, maybe Boub didn't want to be outdone ;D

    New model? Looks like Wotlk shoulders.

    Disappointed that Hearthstone is turning out to be yet another vehicle to charging people for WoW perks. Way too many things like this already. (Blizcon, RaF, Card Game, Collectors Editions, Online Store)

    yeah, I try to explain this all the time. Even if a game is free, it still can not be worth my time to log in if it is that bad. GW2 falls into that category. I would rather pay $15 per month to play WOW, then pay nothing to play GW2, AOC, or SWTOR. Watching paint dry is free also, it doesn´t mean it is a good thing to do with you time.

    Yeah Guild wars 2.
    I notice he didn't address this point. I actually enjoyed the levelling process in GW2 quite a lot but the game suffers from a complete lack of endgame. With no raids and no gear progression path, you're not really left with much else. Championing "no gear treadmill!" is intriguing, but they sort of replaced it with...nothing. I also find the lack of utility skills a bit frustrating, and the limited CC. It's fun while it lasts though and the jumping puzzles are a highlight, brings me back to wall jumping in vanilla WoW back in the day =P

    thats what all those are about. new models. why would mmo champ be reporting on old news?

    Looks like it's going to be yet another Horde-centric expansion lore-wise. Metzen was full of crap at blizzcon when he was saying Alliance was finally going to get the love. Shieldwall was good but Horde had a mirrored version of it anyways and crushed the prince..

    Says in the FAQs on the Hearthstone site that beta testers who buy off the in-game store will get a special item. Obviously this mount. Doesn't seem quite fair, since not everyone will get in the beta.

    thats kinda the point dude. was it fair when blizz removed the naxx ach mounts? no, but they did. same thing. it doesnt have to be fair. everyone isnt going to get everything. thats just the way it is.

    Might be related to how counter-intuitive and confusing comments are in news pages when compared to regular forum posts.

    People probably reported you trying to get the troll dude and scrapbot derp-infracted you, I guess.
