    nah, it just leaves a door open in case, you know, you change your mind?

    by perma deleting everything you take willpower out of the equation and make it easy on yourself. if you really had strong willpower just unsubbing would do.

    sorry, emo move. but whatever, suit yourself.

    I missed the article where Blizzard said that was their intentions. They did say though that flight paths will be quicker and more direct. So that kinda throws your theory out the window.

    I pass you and the other knights in the thread, the torch. Good luck to you all.

    Ganking, while still PVP is a little one sided and rather meaningless.

    If gamers don't want to PVP, you can't really force them. Flying just allowed them to do what they wanted quicker and get past areas they already want to avoid.
    They don't want to PvP when they are at a disadvantage, that's the issue, people only land when they know they will have the upper hand, which leads to aerial stalemates of people looking at each other. Nobody likes being jumped because they are at a dusadvantage, so everybody will stay away

    If they don't want to PvP they shouldn't be flagged or on a PvP server. The whole point of PvP in the world is for there to be a sense of danger, which doesn't exist when you are far out of the way. If a hunter is waiting around a tunnel to jump you, they should be able to do so, not have you hang 41 yards above ground and go on your merry way.

    There with that logic we should remove everything that isn't fair equal ground.

    Since thats not going to happen, flying should also be left as a max level pickup.

    If they don't want to PvP they shouldn't be flagged or on a PvP server.

    and maybe your right when on a PVP server but that is still up the the player to decide. Unless you somehow force everone to abide some some forced rule of PVP. Then PVP even on a PVP server is up the the player. That is not something to be forced.

    Sure you can try to make areas of interest but if no one comes to it or cares. Then it stands to reason, no one really wanted it at anyway, didn't matter if it was PVP or PVE or BOTH.

    and I agree on the PVP part but I'm not so blind that you can alway force PVP even on a PVP server.

    You can try sure but if players don't want to participate. They will not. Doesn't matter how forced you make it.

    Thats just PR verbal vomit from blizzard in a poor attempt to keep things smoothed over. Flying is out till 6.1

    We are getting a crap load of TI content. It will be rather disappointing as it was in MoP and it will be the major content till 6.1 when flying is returned and a new area of TI content will be in place where flying is once again removed.

    It's not sounding fun or exciting at all.

    So "good" = fits your personal likes, sound reasoning not necessary. LOL

    Still waiting on some sound reasoning why cutting a popular feature is better than fixing the small issues with the feature. The story crafted by the blue isn't sound reasoning. It just illustrates an issue with flying, but actually isn't a reason for axing vs fixing.

    Honestly I think this boils down to dev time savings on blizzards end. And if the players accept it, they can continue it and maybe get things out faster.

    So the issue brought to the table is with the current implementation of flying, content becomes just a swoop in on top of the objective and get out as fast as possible with no resistance. How would you fix that, and why is removing flying not a legitimate way of fixing this problem when that is literally all flying brings to the table.

    Should remove ground mounts, too. Since you can do the same with them. Everyone should just be running on foot with with no movement enhancing abilities whatsoever. Also, remove stealth. Can't have those pesky classes bypassing content with class specific abilities. Everyone needs to be on equal grounds.

    Anyone who uses the argument "swoop in and bypass content" need to stop and realize that you can do that regardless of flight.

    Wrong. Flying is bad for the game, so they decide not to implement it. If you can't accept that. Find a different game. I've seen you in this thread like 300 pages ago, must suck real bad to fight a dead cause as much as you do...

    They say a lot of shit. They lie a lot. When they bring Flying back, they'll pretend like they regret removing it, too. The fact that you don't really grasp that is amazingly entertaining to me.

    Oh boy. Do you honestly believe that? You should prepare yourself for yet a disappointment then, because frankly, there will be no flying in level 100.
