Anyone else think Jaime Lannister only has the Kingslayer title because he was just too lazy to kill the king on heroic mode?

Based on past experience, I'm skeptical. I think that Blizzard will find it very difficult to keep up the current patch schedule of releasing significant new content every 3 months. If they do, the real challenge is going to be avoiding the nearly year-long down-time between expansions. I will be very impressed if we seen a new expansion launch in a year from now or less, with two quality patches between now and then.
I was subbed for almost a full year even though I didn't enjoy the game any longer (having spent 7 years with it n' stopped 5 days ago), the only times I logged on, was to for the daily routine with the farms / dailies, and then raid in the evening 4-5 times per week.
What keep't me subbed was the players I was with more then anything, but eventually they also vanished.., and with that, my interest in the game.
Game-wise, Patch 5.X raids was great, but it was to little to late for me sadly
Not that this is a doomsday proclamation, but I doubt anyone has a count on how many players are "unhappy" with where the game have gone for the past 2-3 years (Goes for all types of players), just because people are subbed at this moment, or isn't creating thread upon thread, does not mean they are happy and enjoying the game the slightest, it just means their still subscribed.
Opinions are great, their just not factual as you rightly stated to begin with, yet based it on your own opinion also.
This was corrected within 6 months, though - and anyone who had their PS2 break on them had the option of returning it to the store for a replacement (Sony would reimburse the store without question).
For the most part though, Garian is just talking rubbish. As is his way.
There is only one thing that we say to the god of death.
"Take Sean Bean instead."
WoW will be alive and well for a long time to come. Especially if they keep the content coming out at this rate. It is just a pity that it took so long for them to release that fast content is necessary otherwise people will stop playing.
It's fairly clear Titan is being announced this year. The statement seems to be him reasuring World of Warcraft players.
Still, WoW remains at the top of the entire genre. What happens if WoW is surpassed by another game? WoW will be played and generate money for at least another 10 years, however what happens to the player base when Titan is announced, and WoW becomes the number 2 for Blizzard. What happens when ALL the top WoW developers, are working on Titan.
World of Warcraft may squeak out one more expansion. However be ready for a MASSIVE player drop when Titan is out.
Sorry to say I can't trust anything Blizzard says any more.
Do they intend to keep releasing content like this year after year? Maybe. Will they? That's another story entirely.
With Blizzard I always find there's some spin goes into everything they say just so when it doesn't happen, they have a way to backpedal. Sad really, but it seems to be the way mainstream gaming companies are going nowadays.
Blizzard is good, but don't expect them to get another good game as good as WoW, WoW was just pure luck ;p
Actually I believe it, i'm loving this patch and hating the fact that I don't have as much time to play as I would like (growing up sucks)
I love the new scenarios, the daily quests, the new tag system, the dino island, and the new raid (minus the nightmare mode trash, it was fun the 1st time, but once you figure it out it gets boring real quick)
5.2 is great for raiding. Bad for everything else, the game isn't fun anymore when gearing up because Blizz used scenarios to speed up the output of new patches.
Not that any such monopoly exists, of course. "Blizzard creates the product most people choose over the competition" is not remotely the same as "Blizzard has a monopoly".
They've done a few things that I, the customer, have not liked and still do not like the changes they've instilled on the game.
But any company can make a mistake. It just matters whether or not they rectify it and fix it, which is what Blizzard is quite good at.
They listen to feedback and after making said mistake, or making the customer unhappy, they listen to their plights and then make that said "mistake" into something most people enjoy.
