    I find it extremely boring and not worth the time.

    I have yet to try them. I'm not against them, but I have too many alts I want to level and stuff I want to do on my main to be bothered with them yet. They look like they could be interesting.

    Most definitely the best addition to the game since Heroic difficulties were added to raids. I'm not a fan of how long it takes to level your first pets to 25 and form a stable core but after that it's easy to push additional pets to level 25 in about half an hour, especially with the safari hat and the exp chorizos. Never had a chance to play Pokemon and now I'll never have to. Currently sitting on five digits' worth of lesser charms, a ton of battle stones, and a stable of pets. It's even been a profitable investment since I can just sell all the surplus pets that you get from the Spirit tamers and the legendary dailies for a semi-steady income. Thank you Blizzard.

    Also not a fan of the RNGG but that's just because it never swings in my favor.

    I'm looking forward to them raising the pet cap yet again in the next expansion and bringing out 300 or 400+ pets for us to catch or acquire, and maybe more "Heroic Scenarios" like the Celestial tournament. Who knows, they might add some new categories of pet too. And a safari vest that grants another 10% exp bonus. And Hemet Nesingwary's Personal Seal of Approval for another 5%. Yes, make it happen, Blizzard.
    Can't agree more. It's the best addition ever made to the game since Vanilla.

    I don't like that it get's rather grindy after you figured out how to beat Tamer X/Leg Pet Y/The Tournament. But figuring out what team to use is great fun. I really hope they give us more stuff like the tournament in the Addon.

    All i know is that my gut says maybe.

    Right, they took no code to implement. That makes sense.

    I knew I would like them and really wanted to play them at launch, but that daily grind in 5.0...

    Honestly, i think its a great time waste. Some people dont need to waste time, but i do and i found pet battles to be about an hour a day worth of time gone.

    Where did I ever say that they did not take code to implement? Don't try to twist what I said into your own assumption, thank you. General development and direction is orchestrated by the UI team. That's all I said. These are not the people responsible for PVP development or encounter development or whatever. That's my point. Someone said that they should have laid those people off to get different developers in for raid related or dungeon related content, but I definately don't share the same sentiment.

    When was the last time you saw someone using the game default UI? That's right everyone prefers using addon cause the default UI is complete trash, that's the kind of thing the UI should focusing their efforts not some pokemon ripoff.

    I stay away from pet battles, even tough I don`t want it removed I wish they to leave as it ts right now and don't waste anymore resources on it.

    Yes, because that's all that the UI entails. FYI I only use something to change my bars and leave the rest standard to blizzard issue. Hence, screen warnings for procs/icons etc are all just standard for me. I'm quite minimalistic. Honestly though, there's nothing wrong with them setting their UI team on it if there's nothing else for them to do. Obv there's enough people still using the standard UI for them to keep it the way it's been for years.

    Edit: Tastes will differ. :c

    I definitely enjoyed it.
    I definitely thing overall pet battles were a positive addition to the game; that said, "quick 2 minute pet battle" doesn't really make sense to me.

    I find the actual pet battle gameplay completely boring.

    I did go through and collect every pet possible, and got the achievements, because I'm a completionist. Once I got there I never pet battled ever again.

    Would've been better if they spent more time on the actual UI then. But yeah pet battles are hugely popular, so I don't mind it as much. It just doesn't interest me. My only gripe with it is that it is a requirement to unlock all the Brawler's Guild fights.

    Got bored of it. Never been a fan of the whole Pokemon thing when I was a kid, and the collection of min-pets just doesn't interest me in the slightest.
    Fair play to you if you enjoy it, but I am glad it is purely optional as it bores me silly.

    I don't mind it. At first when it all came out I did go on a spree and collect pets while battling their trainers but eventually got bored of it. Though if a pet does drop in a raid or off a mob or whatever, I will still collect it lol

    I have spent a grand total of around 5 minutes on Pet Battles so really cant offer any opinion of value beyond the statement "Looks fun, just not for me".

    Seems like a great time sink, just meh for me

    It's pretty fun, but the amount of rng and cheesey strats in pvp makes it a really hard for me to enjoy over longer periods of time.
    I hope the celestial tournament is the peak of difficulty for pet battles, as needing very specific and such large amounts of pets.

    Overall, it's not something that requires any big changes, but I'd love to see some new additions. Like mono-battles, quest chains for maybe legendary pets that can only be used in PvE and duels. I also enjoyed doing the Raiding with Leashes achievements, but the fact that some of the pets had as much as 7 breeds and <10% drop chance, made it quite annoying to get the pet you wanted without having to take to the auction house and hope someone doesn't realize what they just posted.

    Pet battles is a fun but small part of the game. I don't spend much time doing pet battles. The battle system would have to be more complex before I would spend more time with it. Leveling pets is increbdibly boring and is something you have to do a lot if you want success.
