    Amazing change! I welcome this. Will reduce strain on the world servers as well (very slightly).

    Heck, they already have similar tech in Battlegrounds. So I'm suprised it took them this long!

    Regardless, very pleased with that change.

    Personally I hope that you atleast end up in Ghost Form inside the raid when you release and then have to ressurect either by waiting or running back to the boss you wiped on.
    Double load screen gives no unique flavor anyone cares about, are you honesty complaining against it? Like really? My god lol.

    Its an excellent change

    Whether it affects you or not, it is not "dumbing down" or losing flavour.
    Really are you that desperate to whine about something that you pull that card card on that.
    It is a basic QoL improvement, one which has no impact on the performance of yourself or anyone else in your raid.
    It has no impact on whether you will kill x boss or not, it does not impact how you gear.

    And...I knew there'd be people bitching about this. Goddamn people.

    I swear, some of you constant QQers remind me of like an alcoholic, you complain constantly but still play. If you're upset about THIS, then just quit. Nobody will miss you.

    Holy shit.

    If we're going to explain hunter arrows materializing out of thin air as if by magic, then why don't hunters magically conjure 10,000 Explosive Shots in the back of Malkorok's skull?

    We haven't been corpse running raids since like WotLK. Loading screens have been longer than the actual run back for a LONG time. 10 times as long in some cases. If anything this gives rise to more stylized graveyards for the raids. What flavor sense did it make for your spirit to pop up in Pandaria when you died fighting in Orgrimmar? None. It was a technical limitation. Corpse running is an open world penalty. The raid penalty for death is the boss resetting.

    Hmm... I guess I won't be able to drop LFR groups and ghost-bounce off the instance portal to get around HS CD anymore.

    Ah *remembers the time in Zangarmarsh with a couple of guildies pvp'ing over that graveyard when benched, so the raid would have a shorter distance to run back*.
    But that was a different time, unthinkable with todays "community".

    I would imagine this will end up being a similar experience to when you do in the outside world or in a battleground, if you are close enough to the beginning of the instance, then likely no loading at all.

    "Upset" is quite a strong word for what is happening. It was a cute detail about this game which is being removed. I don't have to like every single change to keep enjoying the game. You are just as bad as the people complaining.

    Double loading screen was stupid. I liked spirit form though.

    Considering most run backs from the graveyard to the actual raid usually takes like 10 seconds, it really isn't a big deal. Though for some people where loading screens are a pain, this is a welcome change for them. lol

    Ammo entirely makes sense in the game world. The problem with it never was so much the expense (please...) it was storage. Well, and for absent minded hunters, forgetting to buy some before the raid.

    What was exactly "cute" about it? I just love wasting time.

    This won't help that issue. You won't get lost running to the instance but as worded it won't spawn you back where you died, but at the start of the instance, so...

    Barring the snark. Sorry but the ammo thing as a mechanic felt pretty weak. It's not an interesting mechanic.

    Oh good god people UPGRADE. Please, quit bitching about how WoW is slow when you're using a piece of crap from 2005. On any semi-modern PC loading screens aren't a problem.

    I guess that's nice for people with long load times, and it also solves the problem where the world server is going to shit, but the instance server is fine, which means releasing is extremely risky, cos you might not be able to get into the instance again due to the world server falling apart and DCing you over and over again.

    That's not a good excuse. You're basically saying "Quit qquing" which people have given you and you tell them it's not valid. So pot meet kettle.
