How is running at super slow speeds on a road you have travelled 1000 times getting dismounted by pointless trash mobs fun?
It does not sound fun to me. People are going to freak when they realize flying is gone. Freak.
Lol, almost no one comes to these forums and we have an almost 900 page thread. What will happen when general population figures it out.
Furthermore, your posts are ALL LIES.
"To say it is a major feature would be to understate its value" - Laughably wrong.
"Without flying our transportation is being reduced by 66%" - Completely arbitrary percentage. Not even close to factual.
"forcing us to use flight paths which are uniform ally hated by everyone" - Wrong.
"getting dismounted by pointless trash mobs fun?" - Being dismounted doesn't even happen that often. Unless you intentionally pull dozens of mobs.
"People are going to freak when they realize flying is gone. Freak." - Keep telling yourself that.
I like how you state "you're wrong" and "all lies!", but you can't be bothered to tell us how they're wrong. Your post are some of the more comical of the anti-flight posts people make.
Because you're WRONG! I don't need to tell you why you're wrong, but you need to know that you're dead wrong on all accounts.
You can't get the idea of "I'm playing the game while flying" into anti-fliers mind or... well, at least mine due the fact that we're thinking differently. Different opinions, different ideals, different goals for game development.
I've given up with the idea of trying to influence others opinion - I'm just pointing out my point of view in the matter and trying to get Blizzard to develop the game into my favor, in the way which I enjoy more. I'd guess you're doing the same, who would try to make the game worse for themselves?
A bit like in General discussion's "LFR topic", I simply posted that I'd want for LFR and 5-man heroics to co-exist and work as alternatives for each-other with each of them having their own purposes. Flying- and ground-mounts could also co-exist, but that again would need some hefty changes to not drive the other form of travel useless. 310% vs 100%, same distances between point A and B - how many would willingly choose the slower way? A few maybe, but majority would choose flying due the fact that it's faster and easier, nothing to dodge expect few tall mountains and no annoying hindrances on the "path".
And then again, how many would be happy if Blizzard would take them into development table "Should we do this?".
"Guess what, players, we're slowing your flying mounts down after seven years of flying."
Healer/Damage Dealer of SuNHighmaul: Normal 6/7, Heroic 1/7
So please stop this herp derp you just want the rewards and no challenge. It has been responded to and you continuing with it is just making you look illiterate or dumb.
As far as it not being a major feature. Well the box from BC and even I think Cata says you are wrong. The fact that every mount sold at the Blizzstore says you are wrong.
The anti fight crowd loves using the buzz word of immersion as a argument but when you bring up Flight paths and how they are nothing more then a reason to alt tab or take a shit they fall silent.
Cause you are right while you are on your flying mount you at least are still in game or at the very least have it as a choice. On a flight path you got nothing to do but sit there.
Still only time will tell.
The exact percentage we are being slowed down is 67.74% (estimated) that is assuming you have the 310% flying mount.
Now of course you can get the stable for your garrsion increasing you mount speed to 120% (pretty much making that choice mandatory) in that case you are only being slowed down by 61.29%
Now keep in mind these numbers are only reflective if both the ground mount and flying mount are moving in a straight line w/no obstructions. Beings that we know obstructions will exist it doesn't take rocket science to determine the speed we are being slowed down will be much higher.
So although his number was not factual it was still accurate well within the margin of error. So my question to you is this why would you want travel time increased so much?
Cause everything I have stated there is FACT.
There seriously need to give every class a way to leave combat then IMO
Again only time will tell. If I am still on this board when that happens I will be happy to point that out to you and see what <cough> intelligent talking points spew forth from you and Mr. Sith Hamster (I will have to take him off ignore) then.

Unfortunately you fliers are delusional beyond helping at this point. The only thing that may snap you out of it is when WoD launches and noone gives a crap about not flying. And when you realize how not hard it is to get around without flying mounts. You've gotten too cozy and you don't want to lose your luxury, that's all this is.

Honestly seeing this thread continuously bumped by the same four people with the same useless arguments is getting tiring. And then they say "lol 900 pages huge issue". Can we have moderators here please?
Hell, how many as of late still think pro-flyers want flying while leveling? Which simply isn't what we're debating for.
If I want to play a game that didn't have flight, I'd be there. I like wow and it's ability to allow me to fly at max level when I'm done with the tedious leveling content and when I do grab a quest a max level, I'd like to get there sooner than later and under my own power vs AFK-flight paths and should I see soemthing along the way, stop in and take a look.
Riding on the ground is just not interesting enough after 10 level and seeing the same crap over and over and dealing with blizzard amazing dismount mechanics from a level 90 while I'm level 100.
It's not fun or entertaining. Flying at max level, farming mounts, collecting them running ops for them. That was fun. Even the "What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been" was amazing to accomplish and it took a year. Now blizzard wants to trash all that for an undetermined amount of time if not the entire expansions (depending on when they make up their "F"ing mind).
No thank you. There are plenty of other games that seem to be working much harder for my cash than blizzard currently is and don't seem to be removing staple feature that have been in every expansion they have ever had (if they have had any) but I'm not supporting a game company for removal of those types of features thats for sure.
Flying - Probably the most requested feature ever (except dual spec and a dance studio).

Transportation is a major feature of the game.
Travel speed is going from a straight line at 310% to a curvy backwards who knows what path at 100% speed. 100% is 1/3 of 300%. Making it a reduction of 2/3 or 66% travel speed. I am not sure why you are having a hard time grasping this concept.
Flight paths may not be hated, but one thing is for sure. Most people stop playing the game on a flight path and do something else like respond to your posts on mmo-champ. People stop playing while in a flight path because you lose all control of your player.
People have precious little game time and do not want to needlessly spend it traveling at 100%. Make ground mounts 300% and I would be fine.
This is a 900 page post. There have been 100s like it deleted on mmo champion alone. The forum audience is minuscule compared to the player base. Whether you like flying or hate flying there is a storm coming. As soon as people hit 100 and discover they are going to spend half their time traveling instead of playing.
I have not read anything positive about traveling in beta. Players say it is slow and blizzard says it is not our intention for it to feel that way.
No flying is the most epic nerf of all time. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

I fail to understand peoples' obsession with no flying. Sure I do agree that you should remain grounded for the leveling process and what not, but when you hit max level what then? There is no reason for them to remove it from really any stand point. It is more harmful than helpful really... It removes what immersion WoW has and it is also even more time consuming.
Lol, this thread has been a 800 page deja vu made up of close to 20 people calling others dumb, entitled, and disagreeing without end.
What's the fucking purpose of this thread and why is it still open?
