    Thumbs down Can we have a thread with features/content that they scrapped/delayed for WoD?

    I'd like to give my friends notice on what's happening but i just came back from long holiday, could we summarize what WoD is missing/got canned/delayed?

    I'll edit this post frequently



    DELAYED:
    - BELF models
    - Heirloom and tabard tab in inventory

    SCRAPPED:
    - Karabor/Bladespire capitals scrapped.
    - Garisson zone choice

    Karabor/Bladespire capitals scrapped.
    By Blizzard Entertainment:
    Part of the reason is that Battlegrounds are like ducks.

    What would be the point of this? We have whinethreads for each such feature.

    BElf models weren't delayed. Draenei models were accelerated.

    I want to summarize so i can tell my friends what they could be missing because we don't follow forums or twitter every day/week and blizzard doesn't communicate well towards the non-vocal majority.

    I guess we have the Whinethreads for each, but they want this to be a precise list of all known scrapped/delayed features.

    Did they ever even announce the tabard interface as a feature? I thought they were
    still tossing it around.

    Makes ya wonder after the tirade the OP made in another thread they have to make a new thread to continue their tirade, all mainly because the updated Belf models are not being released at launch, even after Blizz said months ago that not all may make it at launch..

    Tanaan Jungle changed from a 99-100 zone to just an 100 zone delayed to a later patch

    The thing was most people knew that not all the model updates may make it at launch and yet people act surprised and pissed off when they are told it is being delayed when they should have known that was what was likely to happen months ago..

    Yeah nice excuse. Software development is like that all the time everytime. If you ever want to finish a product, you must change and cut some things. That's nothing new. How about also listing the new features or features added after BlizzCon? That wouldn't be biased enough, would it be?

    Maybe Farahlon will be the 99-100 zone who knows, you would think by now that peoples minds change.. And for whatever reason Tanaan got changed..

    Yeah the tabards were never something really announced, I think they may've said they were thinking about it along with Heirlooms/Toys but it looks like that didn't happen. Heirloom tab definitely scrapped though.

    Add Tanaan to the delayed list, and flying to either scrapped or delayed. The current status on the flying is not really clear.

    I think you're just being a bit salty about how much people are whining. This isn't a thread about how good or bad WoD will be, just to inform people who have only seen Blizzcon what may've been cut or delayed.

    Last we heard from Bashiok, the most heavily considered option is adding flying in 6.1.

    Except that this is a thread that only lists bad things therefore it's a thread about how bad WoD will be. People who are interested enough to check out BlizzCon will check other news sources as well eventually (and this thread will likely not be one of these sources).

    Flying in WoD was never promised to be in at the start, it was always planned to be added at a later date.

    It's not a thread about bad things. It's a thread about things that are cut or delayed, simple as that.

    So delayed and scrapped features are not bad. Everyone take note.
