    Sad, they did not mention anything about MoP PvP

    They are launching a new Xpac and trying to get players excited for it and they didnt mention PvP even once. I figured by how slow or non-existant the PvP balance patches have rolled in, but this really does put the nail in the PvP coffin, imho.

    I will move to GW 2, not because WoW will die or because it caters to this guy or that. WoW is a PvE game and I am a PvPr at heart.

    They mentioned like three new BGs for a start - And that's just of the top of my head. I'm sure there's more info if you actually look.

    "Shut up PvP guy!"
    And yup, PvE game. And the talent changes will ruin the PvP even more.

    The talent changes are going to make PvP fun again.

    They're not disallowing flying mounts until 90 solely so you take more time looking at the scenery -- it's so there's more world PvP as you level up.

    And an Arena, as-well.

    I like how they want the main focus of this expansion to be "war" but they haven't offered ANY new PvP features. BGs and arenas are just new skins to old things, they need to add -features-. In-game tournaments, etc.
    My Cracked articles, writing blog, and Twitter.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    The BGs they are adding aren't new skins on old things... as they haven't been in the game before, they're different concepts than any other BG. I don't know where you get this "new skins to old things" from.

    But as you mean new features, they would be nice, but In-game tournaments?.. you can run your own in-game tournaments with the war-game feature. Go in to detail about this and explain how it would work differently and what not, please.

    I'm sorry, I thought completely reworking all the classes counted as a change.

    How exactly will more variance between specs ruin PVP? I bet you're one of the EJ copy pastas and afraid you can't adapt to make your own choises.
    MoP is awesome.

    Anddd people don't know what they're quoting, whatsoever.

    That was not a quote that was directed towards World of Warcraft, and is from the director of Diablo III.

    It may have originated as a PvE game but that does not mean that the PvP portion should be ignored, that's the dumbest reasoning I've ever seen. But as I and many other people pointed out, PvP's not being ignored this expansion as much.

    - 3 New Battlegrounds.
    - 1 New Arena.
    - No flying mounts until 90. (To promote World PvP)
    - New talent system which mixes it up in PvP in general.

    you whine too much, seriously you're in every other thread.
    Gamers are too obsessed with the death of games. Imagine if all that energy was channeled into the LIFE of games.

    No flying mounts is to keep from skipping content by flying over it or making quests ten times easier cause you can fly over all the mobs and kill the boss holding the item. This has nothing to do with World PvP.

    Talents will be fun but there's lack of content for PVP.

    Blizzard said themself that some of the talents look OP and what I've seen, it's quite true. Nope I don't follow EJ and I think that all the hardcore dragonslayers and theorycrafters are a joke.

    They talked about 3 new PvP battlegrounds, and about how each zone will basically have the factions clash in the centre.

    They also mentioned that things would heat up between the alliance and horde as the expansion moves on. I'm hoping that means there will be more to come as far as pvp is concerned.

  19. #19
    Errh 3 new bg concepts, one new arena. Also adding like 100 new pvp abilities and making talent trees based 90% around PvE. I have also heard they want arena to be a proper esport in the future.

    I want something like Isle of Quel'danas ... Battlegrounds and such are pretty normal for a new Xpac and will get boring after a while like the cata bgs.
