Bloody annoying if this is the case, I dont want to run around all day long. Having World PVP being dead was a good thing!

No flying is fine for initial leveling, like MoP or Wrath. It avoids the creation of zones filled with vast swaths of pointless emptiness like Uldum. But everything about the non-dungeon PvE endgame requires flying to be bearable. I don't want to fight mobs while gathering. I don't want to spend 10 minutes running from quest hub to quest hub. My time is valuable and I want to spend it having fun or being productive.
Make PvP realms no-fly if people are really clamoring for 24/7 gank-o-rama, especially on unbalanced realms.
When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your damn lemons! What am I supposed to do with these?! Demand to see life's manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!

Everyone knows that blizzard lead devs come out of they way to say multiple times that they dont want people mounting up and moving at 450% speed playign their solo little game,ignoring everything because it "wastes my time".
Tom Chilton - We know this is a concern and we have some things in mind for helping in this regard. First, we’re limiting the use of flying mounts within Mists of Pandaria to level 90. Second, with so many players taking part in the quest hubs, we think we’ll see a lot more PvP happening out in the world. After all, you have to land sometime. If that’s not enough though, we have an item that we’re adding to the game that players will be able to use from the ground that makes it possible to dismount a flying enemy player (within a reasonable range and PvP flagged). We’re still discussing the particulars of how this item will be available.
you are playing a MMO
you are playing in a pvp server.
Mists of Pandaria is focused in the WAR btw both factions.
expect to see more and more of CRZ or no fly mounts stuff.
deal with it.
And the 450% mount speed for the solo game, thats called the questing experience which ends at level 90. The rest of the game, including the dailies that I mentioned above, was designed for flying.
Two guys not liking flying at blizzard does not mean blizzard will make it so we cant use flying mounts anymore.
So lets get rid of this ideal that Blizzard is against flying mounts in its Mop Design because of what 2 guys at blizzard have said.
1) Nobody is forcing you to use a flying mount, go RP or explore on your ground mount by all means.
2) Oh noes! You can't gank that player on a PvP realm because he can fly. Big fucking deal. If you want world PvP then organize it, it shouldn't be that hard if you're on a PvP server. Can't find enough people? Because the majority doesn't care about world PvP anymore, go queue arena.
3) Stop being selfish. You want an entire game changing just because you are too incompetent to do the first 2 steps.
OT: Everybody on the forums keeps complaining about long boring rep grinds, but you also want to remove flying mounts (because it ruins YOURRRRR fun/ganking) so you can spend even more time on the long boring rep grinds?
This is nice. It is fun using the ground mount for a change. I lovd doing so during the leveling from 85 to 90.
All these people asking for complete removal of flying mounts are dumb, though. Imagine going back to Vanilla nowadays. That would be needless grind.
If Blizzard never intended us to fly then the faction HQ's in the Valley of Eternal Blossums would not of been the furthest point from every other place on the mop continent you need to go to even though it is smack dab in the middle of the map.
The gate would of been open in the west to Tai Long Steppes.
There would of been a tunnel leading to the 4 winds in the south.
There would of been a lift in the east leading down to the Jade Forest in the east.
I dare anyone who says other wise to voluntarily spend the rest of their game only using ground mounts. No flight points, no hearthing back and forth, no mage teleports or portals. Enjoy your 25 mins ride out the north of eternal blossoms, east through Kun Lai, ride the boat NPC through the tunnel, south down the misty stair and to half hill just to do your farming, then off the cliff of Karasang, through the swamps and out into the ocean to swim around the great wall to the Dread Wastes fishing daily area just to ground mount to Kaxxi Vess so you can do your Klaxxi daillies.
Science has made us gods even before we are worthy of being men: Jean Rostand. Yeah, Atheism is a religion like bald is a hair colour!.
Classic: "The tank is the driver, the healer is the fuel, and the DPS are the kids sitting in the back seat screaming and asking if they're there yet."
Irony >> "do they even realize that having a state religion IS THE REASON WE LEFT BRITTEN? god these people are idiots"
Oh, and 85% of all quests in Cloud Serpents require you to fly unless you would like to spend 30 minutes swimming. LOL, try that on your ground mount! Then when you are done, "Heres the reward for exalted, a flying mount which we don't want you to use!" :P
As long as people aren't able to fight the NPC quest givers I think this no mount thing will even out pvp wise. I know on my server when the Sunwell Island opened up nobody could get at the quests for a full week. People were killing the quest givers for and I quote 'lolz'. After they got tired of killing them they just amassed on them with mounts making finding the npc very difficult.
