This is the truth. And as a roleplayer, it's getting really tiresome to see it being misused that much. "Why no flying mounts?" "CUZ THEY DESTROY TEH IMMERSION!", no. Just no. Stop already. Stop mangling words like that.
Anyway, to the OP. I dunno, it was a nice experiment. But 'immersion' is still being turned into a buzzword. That's lame. :P
