    Hopefully those who enjoy using flying mounts can vote with their wallets and force Blizzard to reconsider their decision. Sure, there won't be a majority drop in subs, but the number would be significant enough to warrant reconsideration.

    It's worrying because the more they try to force players out into the world, the more they seem to punish the players who already do go out into the world.

    Yeah having awesome flying mounts and not able to fly them would suck. Ashes, several Protodrakes, Bone dragons... you name it. All useless? No, they will bring back flying with the first patch.

    If they want to lose subs due to so stupid reasons - then it's their choice. For me no flying = no sub. As simple as that.

    "Forcing" people to do things like waste their time fighting everywhere isn't healthy about the game either.

    People should be able to play the way they want, not the way other people feel they need to play.

    I want to do things on my own time and not waste time with trivial mobs. They don't force character interaction. They don't make the game more immersive. They waste time, plain and simple. Just like those charging bastards on timeless isle. I don't run by those guys and think "Oh boy I get to do battle with a brutal yaungol!" I think "Jeesum crow, THESE fuckers again..." They aren't dangerous. If I dismount and face them, there's no real way in which they'll kill me. It's just wasted time when I could be doing something I WANT to do.

    They'd look just as "pretty" and "unobtrusively immersive" as they would if I were skating by them in the air.

    Have some pretty sweet flying mounts. But its just epeen and nothing to care about. If we would get immersion and wpvp back i would gladly give up them all. PVE players belong on PVE servers if they cant handle being ganked.

    And this is from a person who does very little pvp in general.

    Another option would be to have 5 sec cast on mount / dismount flying. People wont be able to just mount and fly away.

    Why is flying mounts so important? Feels like 75% of the time spent on the back of a flying mount is being afk so you don't get killed. What so fun and important about that? Use flight paths if you wanna go to some place, easy peasy.

    Hopefully they will. And they'll never try such a thing again.

    Perhaps they'll actually deal with the problems instead of attempting to glaze over them by removing a pivotal game element not actually responsible for all the tangential and immaterial "issues" people bitch about.

    ... you think people are going to AFK LESS after travelling becomes more cumbersome?

    Maybe I like the game like that.

    You going to say I'm wrong? No one's forcing you to use a flying mount.

    That you feel compelled to have others set a pace for you is really a personal problem, frankly.


    What so fun and important about that?
    Because I use flying mounts to get to fun and important things. I don't deem the ground beneath A and B particularly important, especially if it does nothing but act as an impediment. And my experiences on the timeless isle and the isle of the thunder king, stacked on top of the molten front and isle of quel'danis, has not coerced me to believe otherwise.

    Use flight paths if you wanna go to some place, easy peasy.
    Blizzard flight paths are and continue to be terribly formed.

    And this reasoning is pretty specious anyway. So apparently the alternative to flying above everything is to both fly above everything AND encourage people to be AFK more?

    I am sure you know that WoW has been declining, and having more people leave is not good. Especially when a lot of people like Flying.

    Flying adds so much to the gameplay and makes everything so much more fun. It will completely ruin all the Raids, Dungeons, Scenarios, BGs, Arenas and Garrisons because we won't be able to fly around this new content...

    Oh, wait....

    If those are all that matter, then it wouldn't matter if we could fly outside them.

    And it's quite the false parallel to say BGs and raids should be the same as the outside world. The point of BGs and Raids is to topple every enemy in your way and meet specific objectives. Having every single area in the outside world of WoD function like that in intent with the same degree of pointless, filler fluff mobs that the world is normally stocked with sounds like hell, frankly. The outside world isn't linear and has no objectives; nor should it. Therefore, there are no objectives to skip and no linearity to be exploited via flying mounts.

    You know the best way to invite world PvP? Run around on a ground mount while flagged. It'll literally be dropping out of the sky to get to you.

    People who oppose to this change and love flying mounts are most likely PVE peeps who has not played during vanilla and felt how alive the world was without flying ! no offence intended

    Pretty much this.
    While flying is cool, it's not essential for me to have in oder to have fun in Azeroth / Outland / Draenor.

    For those saying they'll unsub if they get rid of flying mounts I have to ask - Why are you still subbed in the first place? I mean if you're willing to quit over something as insignificant as your means of travel you can't be enjoying it very much. Most of the game is on the ground anyway. Not that they said that they would remove flying for the entire expansion. All he said was that they'd see what the player reaction was and if it was positive they'd consider extending the restriction.

    Off-topic I'm disappointed that Ner'zhul is described as being part of the Iron Horde "for a short while", pretty much confirming his death.
    Disclaimer: No I'm not Alliance. I reserve the right to bat for both factions thank you very much.

    The game has been doing more or less fine for seven years without it. And frankly, that's like saying "all of these players who don't want to grind up mats for resist gear didn't play in vanilla and never felt how rewarding it was, that's why people don't feel like the game is challenging anymore!" Such anecdotal evidence wouldn't make bringing resist gear back worth it, and it certainly doesn't make removing flying mounts worth it, as doing either of those things doesn't solve any problem whatsoever.
