    Why support a company that wants to remove all the time, cash and somewhat "effort" I put into flying mounts?
    Because they recognize the game will be better off without it, and are prepared to make a bold decision to fix this issue which has dragged on far too long now.

    Sounds like a perfectly valid reason to me.

    Flying gets me to where I want to go to actually "have fun" in a timely manner. Flight paths do not do this
    Spoken like someone who thinks enjoying a destination called 'having fun' hinges on being able to get there 30 seconds quicker - haha

    No what they recognized is they need to slow content consumption and this is the easiest and laziest way to do it. Especially when viewed that it will affect everyone, everywhere.

    If it was a game detriment, we would have seen problems back in TBC and WoTLK. We did not.

    It wasn't until cataclysm arrived and story/content started to suck and content in general came less and less frequent and far less interesting. Flying is not the problem.

    Spoken like someone who thinks enjoying a destination called 'having fun' hinges on being able to get there 30 seconds quicker - haha
    Spoken like someone who thinks there "fun" is the only way to have "fun".

    Well lets see. I hate wasting time in line getting to the top of the water slide. If I could get there quicker, my time wouldn't be wasted and my enjoyment level would be higher and I wouldn't mind paying to return to the theme park. SO...

    I'll take the Disney fast pass please, even if it only saves me 30 secs. I play games for fun, not to see developers create ways to hinder me from getting to that "fun".

    This is a theme park game. It's all about the "fun" not the standing in line till you get to the fun.

    If you want to wait in line thats fine. Drink your soda in the hot sun and Mr. sweaty, hairy, burly man who keeps bumping into you can have a little social party but lets not pretend removing options is a good thing.

    Oh bull. Most people will just go, "Oh, I can't fly. That sucks. " and then continue playing. The majority won't get their panties in a bunch like you and, "OMG, I quitz and deletes all my accounts!!!"

    I never said Most... or majority. I simply spoke in general. You, on the other hand, seem to speak for the majority. I was speaking for myself, and allowing for the fact that there are others who will feel the same way I do.

    Over flying.
    I didn't lose the money I spent so far. I didn't lose the time I spent so far. Because until now I had fun.
    Without flying I won't have that fun, so I will just stop spending time and money on the game.

    Sure, I could probably have fun in other ways, including playing other games. Which is what I will do.

    You can believe me or not, that won't change my decision.

    Ugh no.

    More than likely what people will do is just not renew that next sub month and stop playing. They will just fade away since that is what most gamers do when the stop playing games like this.

    There will be a few that come to forums and talk about it sure but the majority will just disappear and stop paying for their sub.

    However, I would rather them not pay for the box price, know upfront that flying at this point is removed and let them make a well informed decision on should or should they not support blizzard. Instead blizzard has a more, "let the buyer beware" policy going on with this maybe - maybe not flying fiasco and keep rather tight lipped about it. It seems it's better to lose a sub than a $50 box sale.

    If you think it's to make the game better you are showing your lack of mental ability and age.

    The sole problem that this game has had since the end of WotLK is lack of content. Developing content costs money. So there is every fiscal reason in the world to slow the consumption of content.

    There was even a blue post that said this, but it as edited shortly after it was posted to remove the entire section of 'can't make content fast enough'.

    This isn't about making the game better, it's about milking the cow.

    The list of things that has been in the game for the majority of it's life are (forgive my memory for anything I miss):

    Gear as a character improvement.
    PvP.
    Raids.
    Dungeons.
    Ground Mounts.
    Flying Mounts.
    Quests to level.
    Quests at max level.
    Zones for leveling.
    Zones for max level.
    Flight paths.
    World Bosses or Rare Mobs.
    Exploration at max level.
    Mat farming.

    Now, as a player that pays a sub, I can't justify the removal of any of those features without an attempt to make them better for me as a player. I am more entitled to ask why not expand on those ideas for an expansion.

    Maybe that's just me.

    combine flying and ground mounts into just mounts because they already said you will be able to use all your flying mounts on the ground. Once you do that what on your list is being effected by this change in a negative way? More than one im betting will be effected in a positive way

    We all know the majority of your time on these forums is spent trying to get as much attention as possible. After promising screen shots of your account deletion, i highly doubt you would pass up all that attention and just p.m. them to one person (a person who i know would cover for you). I strongly call bull shit on this until im proven wrong.

    Pvp? Negative way. Should their be wpvp forced on someone, the victim can't opt out and fly away. They will resort to logging out and in the end not play the game.

    Dungeons? Negative way. ( see raids)

    Raids? Negative way. It will now take that much longer getting everyone to raids.

    Ground mounts? N/A

    Flying mounts? Negative way. Most look really bad while used as a ground mount.

    Quests to level? Negative way. For alts this creates a longer time sink as we are forced into ground mounts to level an alt from 90 to 100.

    Quests at max level? Negative way. It now creates a longer time sink to complete those tasks.

    Flight paths? Negative way. Now I am forced into using them, and I don't enjoy using them.

    World bosses? Rare mobs? Negative way, it takes now linger to get to them, increasing the chance that they will be dead before you get there.

    Exploration at max level? Negative way. Now I just won't do it.

    Mat farming? Negative way. It will now take much longer to farm the equivalent amount of mats you could farm with a flying mount.


    What was your point again?

    No, you can't combine them into just mounts, they are 2 seperate forms of transport, and when done effectively, you can not use one to access the places you can with the other.

    Flying mounts could have just as much relevance to max level content going forward as Blizz imagines, but imo it seems imagination is the limiting factor.

    But they don't recognize that, and they aren't prepared to make the decision. They just dance around saying "maybe", "We don't know" and "let's see what happens".

    So until they are actually prepared to make the decision, they are not getting any more of my money.

    I agree with them taking away flying, but I fully agree with you Idoru. THey should just make a fucking decision instead of this wishy washy bullshit. Remove or keep, tired of your shit bro.

    I forwarded it to you in a PM. I am not going to drag it into the thread and use it to attract the attention of trolls.

    This.

    I would encourage those who may have already bought the expansion in hopes it would have flying to get a refund.

    A lot of their posturing on the subject is due in large to the fact that if they'd say "No" outright to flying it would hurt pre-purchase and subscriber numbers prematurely.

    It looks better on them to say it after the fact than before. Especially the way this game is going.

    I like your posts. The purpose of removing flight is to slow down content consumption so Blizzard doesn't have to spend more money to create more content.

    This is correct, they can't say no flying now (even if it is their intent), they don't want to lose pre-orders and current subscriptions. They want us to try it out and hope the major of people are willing to keep paying. Very dishonest of Blizzard.

    This response is what Blizzard is betting on in their huge gamble of removing flight.

    You know how defiant little kids can be. Even when this officially happens and many subs are lost, the little kids in here will just say 'it's only because the game is 10 years old'.

    The fanboys and white knights will continue to claim that flight will return to WoD and we just have to "give it a try" and "wait and see". When we get to the end of the expac and still have no flight, they will proclaim no flight a fantastic success (no matter how many subscriptions are lost) and will continue to kiss Blizzards ass no matter what stupid things they do in the game.

    Yeah I don't buy that though. Generally speaking, if nobody complains nothing gets done. Instead of waiting for the masses to tell them how stupid it is, I am trying to tell them ahead of time. They won't listen to people in beta, they won't even listen at launch, they will only listen when they think that investors will care. We are truly just a number to them.

    I used to have respect for blizzard for their ability to make games, and the way they viewed their players. Things have really changed there. Their games are good, their customer service if you have a problem is good, but their PR is horrible, and ability to project a vision is even worse. The number of things they have changed or gone back on for the sake of money is troubling.
