    Shocked, disgusted and upset.

    So, I just went onto YouTube, casually typed into the search bar "Pandaria monk" just to see if there was any footage out there (With little hope). I get none, so I watch the trailer anyways! I see almost 50% dislikes (In the thousands). What has come over you, WoW community? Not that you were ever the greatest of folk, but really? Is this necessary?

    You wanted an expansion, you want new content, you want new weapons, you want new gear, you want new raids, you want new BGs, you want higher levels.
    You want, you want, you want, you want. You get. You moan, you strop, you hate.

    The only information we ALL have on MoP is that of a days worth. Surface information, ideas, new concepts yet to be fully developed. Calm your damned selves and for once, don't be a horrible, stroppy brat. You know the vast majority of brats won't stop playing the game. They'll get over what they've been given and play with it, with their head down, letting out the occassional moaning sigh. Do yourselves a favour and stop this ridiculous charade, you're making a mockery of yourself. Since for once, the pro-expansion community seem to be the more competent.

    Might I add also that I am personally NOT fond of the Panderan being a playable race, however I've been utterly captivated by most of the other new concepts Blizzard are introducing.

    I read the book, I don't look at the picture on the front cover and toss it aside. Please do so yourself, you'll regret it otherwise.



    EDIT:
    People are misunderstanding me. My points aren't based entirely on the Youtube dislike figures, not in the slightest. That moment was just the point I was tempted to get a discussion going on. I wanted to find out what was happening!

    My God, what a horrible creation. People seeing what they want? Thank God they tried to shy away from that. I know it pisses me off when I'm in an heroic raid, yet in the back of my head all I can think is 'some casual player is playing a heroic dungeon and not wiping.' -Vodkarn

    I don't quite understand why this would disgust or upset anyone...

    You sound like some kind of Hardcore Librarian.

    if it disgusts and upsets you that people (alot of them apparently) just aren't hyped at all for this expansion, then i think you should get out more

    First impressions. They're important.

    I've also read into the information. I'm not impressed.

    Nothing happened to the community. That's just Blizzard screwing over the game...

    It's not really fair to say that people are getting what they wanted when they simply wanted a new expansion. It's like in the movies when a guy gets a wish from the devil and the devil corrupts the wish.

    Bergtau's Law: As an online discussion grows longer, the probability that somebody will mention Godwin's Law approaches 1.
    Hitler wasn't all bad, I mean, he DID kill Hitler.
    An accident is something that you did not mean to do at all. A mistake is something that you regret doing.

    Maybe Blizzard finally released something people wanted, and some who want an end game boss gets pissed.

    Oh that's a wrong comparison. We haven't been given a front cover. We've been given previews taken out of the book.


    You may not judge a book by it's cover. But you may lose interest from reading the synopsis.

    Don't let it get to you. It'll only spoil your own personal enjoyment if you do.

    Don't ever make an opinion based on the comments from Youtube.

    People are whiny and quick to jump on a bandwagon. They take their opinions from the loudest person in the room.

    Irony. Be familiar with the word. I think Blizzard just isn't catering to the whiny little kids of the community anymore, and making the game for loyal fans again. Guess which part of that you are? Yep, you're one of the whiny, demanding little kids that are getting left out. So, please unsub ASAP so we don't have to hear you whine anymore, since WoW is 'dead'.

    Or they objectively looked at the trailer and thought it looked like a heap of garbage.

    I'm liking it, I made a point of going through almost all the particularly vocal haters post history. This game is going to be much better off without them

    I'm confused by why you are shocked, disgusted and upset because other players don't like the info about MoP so far.

    "You got a new expansion. why are you complaining" and "haters gonna hate" are just cop-outs for the inability to come up with a reasonable argument that MoP doesn't look ridiculous.

    - Higher levels
    - New Raids/Dungeons
    - New Zones

    Those are not valid arguments, because every expansion includes those.

    Maybe I'm playing the devil's advocate here, because I'm still personally undecided about MoP so far. There's some things I like, and some things I don't like, and some other things I'm curious how they turn out. But I definitely understand why others don't like what they see.

    A simple observation I've made from watching random players ... they're never satisfied. Here's an example of a typical QQ.

    After Blizzcon: Path of the Titans concept sounds pretty stupid.

    After Expansion Release: They shouldn't have gotten rid of it.

    The reason the game doesn't satisfy people is because they don't know what the heck they want except to complain. Blizzard should just put out the product and if people don't like, don't buy it/play it. Spend your money elsewhere. But speaking logic to consumers that know everything is ... illogical. /sigh

    Youtube comments contain the dregs of society, quite frankly. The posts that aren't trolling are straight up stupid. I remember reading some comments about an old Superbowl video (from the 70s, I think) complaining about horse-collar tackles and how the refs were biased. If aliens first impression of us were Youtube comments, they'd exterminate the planet.
