    They're giving a flying mount with the CE/DD editions but at the same time are thinking about eliminating flying? Just do a little thinking before posting.

    people complain how things were better in vanilla. they try to respite ideologies of what people miss. people complain again. its like a vicious cycle.

    I could care less. This isn't going to change anything.

    He just said basically no flying at launch. The same they said since the expansion was announced.
    6.1 will allow you to fly. Sheessh i cant comprehend how some of you get so upset about misinterpretations and raw incomplete info.

    You guys make me realize better why other people get that upset over their own interpretations about real life ... issues. You know what i mean. Thats how you sound.

    No flying at all theoretically points to an attempt to stretch out content by introducing a large artificial time sink. But we will have to wait and see till the beta comes out so we can't really speculate any further. Blizz argues that players burn through content fast because of flying, but I disagree. I would argue the queue system is what causes players to burn through content fast but isn't being scaled back so flying is taking the brunt of it which seems unfair from my view.

    Those people you talk about believe everyone should be like them and forcing everyone instead of giving everyone freedom is how thing should be.
    And those guys aren't even really dangerous. If you have CC, you can avoid them completely. They are most annoying on my DK since I have to waste the time and sit and kill them. The only way they are a danger to me is if I try to ignore them and run. They, by themselves, are no dangerous in the least. Just annoying.

    It's ok to not like things. Posting and you!

    His interview is pretty far from a statement of no flying in all of WoD. It can be taken equally he's saying they'll see how things go with no WoD launch flying (which we have all known since Blizzcon) and that they'll possibly consider not having flying in a different future expansion after WoD.

    There is a list of things about a mile long that Blizzard at one time or another has said that they might consider doing someday. In fact that's pretty much the default answer to every audience question at the Blizzcon panels.

    tbh there are not many classic wow players left and the whiners are usually people who joined after burning crusade, classic people dnt care about this change cos we know how it was back in the day its the new breed of kid gamers who are fucking bitching if you dnt like wow go back to fucking call of duty if yo udnt like drastic changes

    Yes! Yes! Yes!

    OT: This will make me really happy if it comes to pass. I'd rather not have the comodity of easy travel in return of the immersion of walk-only, any day!

    Flying is one of the biggest things that makes WoW different from other games. Removing it would be ludicrous. Now ,removing Arenas? That would make sense.

    What servers were YOU on in Vanilla? :P

    I used to love having bots trundling around Deadwind pass. I would just run ahead of them and tag vultures with a moonfire and let them kill it for me. Sometimes it'd be hours before they caught on.

    Yeah but I don't want to believe this a possibility but time sink introduction to travel is often a trademark of Korean MMORPGs.

    trying to bring back the old days are nothing but nostalgic memories of old.

    The only worthwhile advantage to removing flying is to limit how quickly you can advance in level. Beyond that, there's no need for this arbitrary gating system. If you want people to spend more time in the world, make it compelling and interesting to be outside of the cities whenever possible. This would be the exact opposite. Instead of flying out to run someone through a dungeon or farm a weekly raid reset, people are going to think "fuck it, I have to run all that way" and AFK in the major cities even harder. Would you seriously ground mount from IF or Org all the way to Kara every week? Or, god forbid, TK? If you said yes to that, you're either a goddamn liar or a masochist.

    Botters existed in Vanilla.

    I think players burn through content "so fast" because they take too bloody long releasing new content.

    Great. See you in whatever expansion comes after they fire that whiny Everquest crybaby.

    meh, don't give a shit. as long as they allow all mounts to be used as ground mounts I'm fine with it

    fly/no fly areas should have been opposite of what they are now. most of the world should have been no flying with special content areas that allow flying. it wouldn't have cheapened the world experience and flying would be more special and exciting.
