For the Horde! And for the Earthmother!
You can take that mount and XXXX it.
You release the incredible BAT mount on the store for people to buy, then toss out that re-skinned piece of crap for your subscription raiders as a reward for months of effort? I really want to continue loving you guys, but you make it hard with the garbage you keep providing as big time reward mounts. Maybe it's time to capitulate and pick up a copy of FFXIV like my friends have been encouraging.
There is a reason that thousands of people run marathons. They don't need to. They could go run in the park and get the same "enjoyment" out of it. But part of the experience is the prize at the end. And so yes, people will raid for the fun ... but when you have a prize worth striving for - then the trip is all that much more fun.
In life, all you really need is a roof and food. But the other stuff adds to the journey. Wow isn't a communist era apartment building where you should be happy with what you get. It's a game ... for entertainment. So it is completely justifiable for people to be sorely disappointed when the 'reward' they want to chase is a complete let down, to the point that you don't even care about it.
I personally love the raiding. But I also get enormously pumped when there is a great reward at the end. And that mount is terrible.
Anyone else notice that someone went to trash talk the picture on the art website.
Amazing Fan Art!
Also there's no special snowflake point in getting such a mount via Flex raiding, unless it's a completely new model or something. I for one look forward to work on the Glory achievement via Flex raiding.
we'd call heroic scenarios a big success. They are very popular, despite lack of matchmaking
Free and fast VP are a big success, heroic scenarios are pretty lame.
This is one of those anecdotal things.. But I have a guild with about 400 different accounts. Probably 100 level 90s from different accounts. There are 3 of use.. THREE that have ever killed a raid boss while it was current tier. I have been putting together our Flex raid group for next week... you are talking about 80 or so characters with ilvls above 500 that have never done anything but LFR.
If you take away LFR..what do those players have left? LFD dungeons and normal mode scenerios?
I really hope Blizzard continues to ignore the wanna-be hardcore players. The fact is, all of the really hardcore players understand the value of LFR. It is the SOLE reason there are 14 raid bosses this tier, and 12 last tier. The real problem is the wanna-be hardcore players.... they want to be considered hardcore, but they don´t want to do anything extra. A hardcore raider THRIVES on finding any little thing they can do to give themselves an advantage... remember when people were changing professions on a weekly basis? Now you have the wanna-bes who want to sound tough on the forums, but at the same time, they cry if they can´t be ´hardcore´ by raiding 6 hours a week.
I disagree with the fast VP thing. As a tank, I can steamroll a heroic dungeon, even with 4 strangers and get more VP per hour and get a COA satchel.
for the love of god. The orc clan who joined the horde, an clan who is notorious for capturing, taming and riding dragons. Are doing so to Proto drakes.
It makes frikkin sense for SoO to drop such a drake from such a boss. ya know, since its the one being frikkin ridden.
Yay, reskinned Red Proto-Drake! Keep the creative juices flowing, Blizzard.
Wahhh wahhhh I don't want to have to talk to people in an mmo waaah. Those whiny posts were hilarious. Just remove LFR and be done with it. It's the cancer of this game and I'm glad they're finally realizing it. Like he said, stop whining and go play skyrim if talking to people is such a hassle in an MMO.
Oqueue would love to say a big F-U to Blizzard and whatever they think qualifies as a premade.

Ech, what an underwhelming mount, especially when stacked up against all the other mounts being added with this patch.
Seriously, it's so mediocre, it's something I would expect to be the reward for a mount collecting achievement.
