    I feel sorry for those with gathering professions to be honest and the crafting professions will be hit somewhat but you can still function somewhat. To me MMORPG's are about progression not going backwards in design...that is why character models are being upgraded for WoD and why the talent system was over hauled in MoP, etc. Just my two cents IMVHO.

    Although this is highly unlikely, it's not a big deal to me personally. Sure people will bitch and whine, but it's fine.

    Guess I'll miss using my "fly-only" mounts.

    More of a reason to sit in a main city and just get summoned to raids. Can queue for BGs/arenas and presumably that new world PvP thing from main cities, along with LFD and LFR. There's virtually zero reason to ever leave a main city. Not being able to fly would just give more reasons to sit in a city.

    I basically never leave the cities anyway aside from Tuesday to do Celestials, and I can just hop on a flight path and go AFK for a few minutes when I want to do that. So I really don't care that much, it's pretty much irrelevant.

    So what if he flys now? He doesn't say hes not, hes not being a hypocrite, hes welcoming a better solution to travelling.

    I myself loved it when ground mount was the only transport (except flight paths), but I still fly now, but I won't go full retard if I lose it, I'd welcome it with open hands. At least the world will feel x10 bigger with only ground mounts. And even better, DANGEROUS.

    I didn't hear anything that suggested no flying all expansion, but I'd certainly be delighted if that were to happen.

    The world has never felt dangerous.

    The problem is they are using a time sink (increased travel time) to cover up the fact the lack of content. This is what MMORPG Korean grinders do.

    Seriously? unsubbing for no flying in WoD areas? HAHA. sorry but wth. do you log in and fly around for a few hours per day while normal ppl do stuff like raiding etc?

    He talked specifically about how he loves to explore and walks all over in Skyrim. Great, you can ride pretty much everywhere in WoW *NOW* if you like doing that. If he's saying he likes exploring by riding but doesn't do it when he can and instead flies and THEN advocates for removing flying... that's hypocrisy. His better solution (and perhaps yours) is one that you can use now. So use it.

    So you're a hypocrite too. You want love ground mounts... but fly. You want the danger that comes with riding... but you fly.

    There's a phrase that's relevant here: Put up or shut up.

    Personally I think adding flying to the game was the biggest mistake Blizzard has made, but I also think the cat is out of the bag on that and many, many players would be 100% unwilling, to the point of canceling their subscriptions, to give it up.

    I might consider re-subbing if this happens.

    No, I fly to an area and do things there - quest, world bosses, elites. I don't find spending more time getting somewhere to be attractive when I've had, for years, a more efficient method of travel.

    I explained why I'd not resub - I don't like design choices that arbitrarily restrict things just because the devs got a wild hair up their ass. Flying's been part of the game for six years with the exception of leveling content in each new expansion. It's been in the game for 4x has long as it wasn't here... so how about you all just fucking deal with that instead of whining about it all the time?

    He starts talking about it at minute six (pretty much on the dot).

    Also, the point he makes is this:

    Take that how you will, but it appears to me that it'll be driven by how players react. I daresay they'll making flying possible in 6.1 if the lack of it is widely enough reviled, but if players in the main don't miss flying then they'll keep it out.

    Alas, I worry that a significant sub drop of any kind in 6.0 could prompt the wrong response and we see flying hastily brought back in. Don't get me wrong, I'd rather fly because it seems jarring to be able to fly through Azeroth, Outland, Northrend and Pandaria then... You just can't fly for some reason (which, to me, would be inconvenient).

    If the gameplay doesn't suffer because of this, I can support the decision either way. Personally, I'm more worried about profession gathering and, in particular, things like archaeology that ask you to travel a lot. No flying has the potential to be very painful under circumstances such as those.

    Well then, looks like I don't buy the game for the entire expansion.

    You really don't know what my point is.

    yup. and its not going anywhere. its a specific area. you can still fly in org/ other contents. so its still a part of the game.,

    And to add, idc if we get flying or no flying. i can still get to my raids, my daily chores etc. most of you complain for the sake of complaining about this.

    Someone clearly doesn't get it. That's like telling a warlock who doesn't like the new affliction playstyle not to use malefic grasp. Most of the time, it's not that someone dislikes flying, it's that they dislike the effect it has on the game. One person not flying doesn't change anything.

    You're whining that they are removing it though. So obviously you can't deal with Blizzard's choices.
