In a game as equipment dependent as WoW, where differences of insane magnitude exist, even between 90s, FAIRNESS is pretty much nonexistent.Expecting a somewhat fair fight. I don't consider killing a low level character PvP.
Whomever has the bigger stat stick wins. It's as simple as that.
PvP servers would be dead (and I mean completely dead) like that: *snips with fingers*.I guess there might be some clever reasons to why such a split would be a bad idea.
Players are WAAAY too attached to convenience. And personally I think that flying is too big a thing to be made optional.
Also: Forcing players on the ground is an excellent timesink. Blizzard likes timesinks, because more timesinks = less content needed/time interval = less $$$ investment for nearly the same return of profits.
Yes: I sometimes think that lowly of them.
They want more. They're just cautios and want to see how it turns out.There will be no flying in WoD for one patch for PVE reasons.
I hope it causes an outrage, so we can back to "no flying during leveling", which I always quite liked.
ON TOPIC: Flight can be balanced, without being removed. There have been some compelling ideas made in this thread. Blizz just needs to explore the options.

Supermassive Battles that died with the implementation of Epic rewarding instanced Battlegrounds excluded.
You alone at 100% Health: Hordie Waves and smiles.
You alone at 25% Health in fight with a mob: Same Hordie kills you and spits on your corpse while trying to camp you.
Open World PvP was never a playstyle that should have been encouraged. At all.
The Walking Dead, very popular show. There is a young girl named Lizzie who is Bi-polar and we find out through the course of the show, she is hurting small animals and doing some other dark things. So, when she kills her little sister to bring her back as a Zombie, Carol, the woman in the picture has to tell her to "look at the flowers" since that is what brings her down from her dangerous state. This gives Carol the moment she needs to do the only thing she can do, which is stop Lizzie from hurting anyone else, including the baby who was "next" to die after her sister.
no where does it say that pvp needs to be arranged or consensual.
It is a shame. Again, I think when those who play WOW, and have no idea we bicker back and forth everyday on forums, discover flying is gone.. Well, I think the response will be unprecedented.
No flying will not work because Blizzard has a horrific (by horrific I mean the absolute worst in the industry) travel system. Taking 3 minutes to run to a flight path and then taking 3 minutes to fly to your location is simply not acceptable. It is not acceptable.
