And thus I give you: MALE contraception!
So basically:Sounds like developers already made up their minds not alowing flying the entire wod expansion.
If that were the case, we'd say so. Our plan is no Draenor flying in 6.0 and player feedback is important to us. (WatcherDev)
1 - They initially decided no flying for 6.0 and thought they'll bring it back in 6.1 as the epic quest chain (as was quoted in previous blue tweets)
2 - They saw how much positive feedback there was for the change, and decided to see if they can delay it even further.
3 - All future and current tweets now 'neither confirm nor deny' whether no-flying will be extended for longer, or possibly even the full expansion, citing player feedback and opinion.
Where the fuck did the get the feedback from? Because I didn't see a poll thingy popping up in-game asking about flying, and they've said multiple times that they don't design the game based on forum posting. So, where the fuck is that feedback coming from?They saw how much positive feedback there was for the change
Here's the answer: there was no feedback, it's a totally pragmatic decision, to make the boring obsolete content "last longer", even if it's annoying and tedious. They base their decision on the belief that the WoW population can't make the difference between actual content and running around. We'll just have to wait and see if that's true, my belief is that even the most ardent defender of the no flying crap will rage pretty quickly after release and long before patch 6.1, simply because the no flying crap will not bring the people out in the world, to involve them in epic world PvP battles or whatever the fuck some people dream
Also, regarding the flight paths, and the stupid argument "WoD is designed with no flying in mind" lol... Even if they make the flight paths faster and non retarded, it's still AFK TIME. It doesn't matter to me that the new flight path is only taking 4 minutes instead of 5 minutes. It's still 4 minutes of doing nothing. And let's talk about the retarded "parachute" argument, that doesn't help me either. Currently if I go somewhere and I change my mind, or someone asks me to go somewhere, I just change the direction. Now if there's not flying, but we have the new awesome flight path with parachuting, I'll have to parachute, probably in the middle of some shit zone infested with obsolete mobs I don't give a fuck about, ride to the first flight master, hoping there's no fucking ganker along the way. In the mean time, the people that are waiting for me get bored and say "it's OK, we got another dude, can't wait for hours for you to sort out the traveling shit"
Attention anyone still coming into this thread after 261 pages of QQ over something as trivial as no flying in Draenor for one patch:
Quit the game and never come back.
And for the love of god stop posting about it.

They're doing this in order to make Draenor into a max level content zone like TI and IoT, for that to work they need to disable flying while it's relevant. Also it's kind of an experiment for them to see how it works out. End of.
I find it difficult to believe that people would be so greatly upset about no flying until 6.1 so much that they would rather quit the game.
Surely this must just be the last thing in a long line to cause dissatfisaction to those going in this direction of quitting the game?
I still do not care whether it will be no flying until 6.1 but then again I do not belive it would matter to me if was cut out of the new content entirely.
I anticipate regular drama with 250+ people stacking on the flight NPC, half of them on their no-longer flying giant dragoon, raging as they are desperately trying to target it.
They are designing the content around no flying. In the fashion of timeless isle. That's how it's designed to be played. There's really nothing more to say on the topic. Unless you believe that they should let you fly in content that is designed to be played without the luxury of flying. You might as well argue that you should get flying in all games in order for them to be fair.

1) The clean version of Outlands
2) Possibly no flying at all in Draenor
3) New models may not be ready at launch, and they are unsure WHEN they will be
and the list continues to grow. How much more do we have to LOSE and have removed from this game before enough is enough? For those of us who pre-ordered the CE for the mount and the pet, we can at least justify $30 of the $69. But justifying the other $39 grows more and more difficult each time they announce the launch MINUS another feature.
Nobody knows how this experiment is going to work out. It depends on how its implemented, because as Cata heroics demonstrated even a good idea can have bad results if implemented poorly.
