    Why? Is there a reason?

    I assume that once enough people express an interest in battle pets, MMO-C will prolly start one. Same with Hearthstone, if enough people are talking about it, they'll accomodate it.

    How many threads do you see about pet battles? I see very few. If this forum was filled with pet-battles I'm sure there would be.

    Pet-Battles and Lore forum is all that is missing, I see a lot more lore discussion than pet battles tbh.

    If anything though, I'd imagine they'd just expand Role Playing into "Lore and Role Playing" over a new forum for that.

    It fits in too well. Pet Battles is pretty far out from any existing forum. It gets buried to hell in General Discussions as well, whereas the Lore threads stand up on their own.

    The Hearthstone subforum does seem pretty deserted now, it was only really popular the first day/week. I think a lore subforum will be far more active, there are plenty of lore threads to be found in the general discussion. I'm pretty much repeating myself... said the exact same thing tons of times :P

    As for pet battles, I personally don't see enough interest in it. What exactly is there to discuss? Who's the cutest pet? Who's the best undead pet? How many Pet Battles did you win? It seems that it can perfectly fit in a megathread.

    What's stopping from this changing happening? I'd be okay with sharing the subforum with role playing but would this be anytime soon?

    I don't know if the roleplayers would be pleased with that though.
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    There are 7 people viewing the role playing forum, I don't think many would object.

    The admins want to see a lot of activity on a particular topic before introducing a new forum. The best way to get a lore (or pet battle) subforum is to make good threads on it and encourage discussion.

    I don't see why. Roleplaying is your character's story and lore is the game's overarching story; they're very similar in terms of theme. Although I know some people are interested in one and not the other, but it's hard to deny that their very similar topics.
