    oh, here's your memo guys:
    real world pvp died because of flying mounts.
    I would say it acually give the PvP servers a fair chance at things, how many servers are even at a fair ratio by now? Because 1:2-1:4 ration isn't exacly the spawn of awesome WPvP

    Also the isles at least gives WPvP a little something

    I really love the flying mounts. I remember back in the old days of BC as i finally managed to get all the gold for my first flying mount. Holy sh** that was one of the best moments i ever had in WoW and im thankfull that blizzard implemented them, but i think that flying in capitals like Orgrimmar and Stormwind etc is a little too much.

    Removing it from the capitals would be great but completely removing flying mounts would make traveling and leveling horrible.
    Rogues may do it from behind, but Druids do it on all fours! ;-)

    Strong and stable in-game economy. Happier and more engaging players as it would take longer to explore zones, do quests, farm mobs and crafting mats etc. More and better outdoor PVP and PVE. Probably less players though since it wouldn't be casual friendly anymore.

    If only they would ban flying mounts in the next expansion, though only for that particular planet / continent / whatever we'll get. You would still be able to fly in all the older zones, just not in the new content.

    How on earth does prolonged time doing quests and farming make you happier? Thought mindless quests and farming where the biggest obstacle for MMOs to pass for a better and more enjoyable experience. Engaging maybe in some cases talking in chat while doing these mindless tasks other than that don't see the big difference.

    One thing I think of and thats....the world would be alot less....grand and epic. Think of all the things that would not seem as grand.

    Since Flight was introduced in BC not many instances aside from TK needed flight to get to it. So aside from TK having "Light bridges" to access the ships, nothing would change...but Wrath is when flight training as a whole was embraced

    Without flight, we wouldn't be able to fly up to the dread citadel of Naxxramus, over the chasm to the great titan halls of Ulduar, over the mountains to the Argent Crusade, or over the miles of minions infront of Icecrown Citadel would be cleared off to the side which make it seem like the huge battle being fought alot less grand.

    Without Flight we would have to enter the dimensional tower of the Twilight Citadel from the ground, we would have to run all around the mountain to face Blackwing in his fortress. We would have to enter the skywall from...the ground? We would have to travel and swim in lava to face Rag in the Firelands.

    Then Mogushan Vaults would not have been able to be on the side of a mountain.

    Some pretty epic feeling moments were created when flight was introduced.

    I very much think we do have very different looks on the matter I do play on a RP server in WoW and I do like immersion but as it is now I like the quaility of life that flying mounts give. And also again my example of running through the same zone and having to avoid the same mobs 10 months in a row is just not for me. Granted I do like Rift aswell (no flying mounts) but I just think their mob despersion is better for exploration and running through old zones.

    But as you said it is far to late too remove but at least Blizzard have done some things to make up for it, the isles is the best example. I will also say that I think that flying could be better and more engaging, maybe zones after levelcap with huge mountains to explore or avoiding flying mobs that will slow you (not knock you off the mount).
    That or remove them (insane loss of subs) but make a far bigger expansion zone, like the size of classic and I would be content with that.

    I don't understand how the world without flying mounts would not be "as beautiful" or not "as detailed" as some people in this thread suggest.

    That is the most idiotic arguments.

    Not as beautiful? I'd say even more beautiful. The devs wouldn't have to focus on every fucking hilltop, but focus more on thing people actually can see.
    Also what does the fact that you have badlands right next to snowy hills of Dun Morogh have to do with flying? It's still there.

    Another point - you don't have to design the whole trees, because of what - because people can't see them, which means less polygons, which equals more FPS. Remember when you couldn't fly in Stormwind? the city was cut to districts, when you were let's say in the Trade district, the only part that were loaded were trade district and Cannals. Right now, the game needs to load the whole place - because of flying mounts.

    What does that all mean? The game would actually be MORE detailed (and beautiful and run more smoother).

    Also if you were playing "back then", you surely remember how special it felt when you hillclimbed to some place nobody else knew about and how exciting this exploring felt.

    Longer time completing/exploring content=Less time doing nothing between patches=Happier people.
    Also a sense of accomplishment when you have to spend more time grinding for something or leveling your toon.

    Strange, thought asian MMOs, who were know for their prolonged leveling and grinding, were hated for this exact point.

    Outland/northrend/cata/mop whould feel slot larger.
    Icc whouldnt feel rediculus (why take battlement after battlement when we can fly straight to icc?!).
    Stormpeaks whould be epic all them mountains
    Places in outland such as skettis/ogrila/netherwing whould have been new and exciting when they were introduced.
    Cata expansion whouldnt have felt so small.

    pretty much every zone whould have felt more alive, larger and you whould ahve been more familiarized with it. the immersion of the game whould ahve been higher.

    I wouldn't go so far as to quit. I remember running all the fuck around the old map with no flying mount from classic to LK. It's a pita, and stopped me from going to those places when I hit level cap.

    Yes it would. And after a month exploring all that, how excited would you be having to ride through the same group of mobs for the millionth time?

    There's more at play than just being grindy. ALL, literally EVERY Asian MMO has super lame and boring combat. It's stiff and special moves are almost always sequenced, meaning you lose control of your character. How fun is it to grind when the game overall is utter dogshit? WoW actually have fun gameplay and combat which makes grinding so much more enjoyable.

    Fair point. However spamming my rotation 100 times for every single crafting material isn't what I would call enjoyable. I think it comes down to how tolerant people are to repetion, I am not, hence why I like the flying mounts (quaility of life)

    Extremely boring and tedious going from the end of one zone to the other end of the continent; time wasting.

    I actually agree with you. Removing flying mounts now would be suicide for WoW and it's not a good idea. You can't give something and then take it back. But if flying mounts were NEVER implemented in the first place then I think the WoW community would have been a happier bunch.

    Hard to say really. It might have lost them 2 million subscibers more over the years do to people not enjoying the obstacle of traveling through mobs and terrain?
