    Thread's topic is "Possibly no flying throughout entire xpac."

    We know for certain that there won't be flying ever again in WoW. Close this unnecessary thread already.

    Flying is a form of travel, of which there are many others, not an "integral feature" of wow. You people need to get over yourselves, it's getting quite embarrassing tbh.

    Leaving a game because they changed a travel mechanic is laughable at best.

    "Hey Johnny, not seen you on wow for a while? You've been playing since [insert xpac here] and uses to be on all the time, what happened? Get bored of raiding? Pvp not your thing any more? Just get bored of the game?"

    "they removed flying mounts. It was an integral feature in the game you know? I just couldn't bring myself to have to travel around in a different, slightly slower manner, so I quit forever."

    "..."

    Honestly, don't you see how ridiculous you all sound?.

    Different strokes.


    There is no right or wrong reason to leave the game. It's just a matter of personal taste.

    I'm pretty sure if you go back and read some of the older posts on this thread, you will notice that most people that have unsubbed did so because of other reasons besides just lack of flying alone. The no flying is the just one reason in a long list of reasons why people are leaving wow right now.

    That's not how it works on forums, the ONLY reason why subs drop is because of my personal pet peeve. The quarterly report is justification for my personal gripes.

    Moving forward, new expansions are also unlikely to have flying outside of specific zones or expansion ideas.
    Mfw unlikely means never.
    I didn't know signatures could be too big. I didn't know web designers couldn't force resizes on an image

    Removing raiding would go along way to making this a better game. Removing flying has done nothing except upset people who liked flying. I'd give raiding the boot before flying.

    And the tiny fraction for whom heroic raids are currently well tuned? Too bad,so sad! With the arterial bleed of subs the fastest it's ever been, the vanity development that gives you guys your own content is no longer supportable.

    I was never particularly a progression raider... I did a few months worth in LK and that was about it. It was not for me (it felt to claustrophobic to me).



    Had they announced 18 months ago that they were removing it, I would not have batted an eye. Still, I would have understood why some were upset.

    well, atleast they had the balls to finally come out and talk about their plans for flight, gotta respect that. Also exactly on a day I would have subbed for an extra month if not for this new info.

    It's a sad day. I remember earning my flying mount back in bc. It was a glorious day when I finally took to the sky. No more. No more fun. That's not what Blizzard is about. They want to dictate everything about the game experience. They've ruined the greatest game there ever was.

    You can go back and play on BC private servers that are 1:1 the game from back then. What's stopping you? Are you sick of playing the greatest game there ever was? Or are you just lying to yourself?

    there are vanilla servers as well, why were you playing wow the last X years with flight, if you could have played the perfect game without flight for years?

    Almost all of the decisions and information coming out of Blizzard for the last year or so has bordered on mystifying.


    I mean, consider this statement: "Ultimately, after much deliberation, we came to the conclusion that the world of Draenor would simply no longer provide the experience we envisioned it if we were to reintroduce flight in this expansion."


    At last count, the "experience that they envisioned" has cost them about 3 million subs (so far) during the course of this expansion, which is a record to blow away all other records. BTW, I am not blaming flight alone for this (that would be foolish). I am blaming the total presentation that is WoD... "their vision".


    So by this point, you think they would have realized that their vision was horribly-horribly flawed, and that maybe sticking to the parameters of the original vision was not working out so well... but no, they seem to insist on more of what was not working in the first place.


    Mystifying.

    I'm adapting to WoW's changes. I have the skill to do so, unlike you and your pro-flying nerds.

    Those 3M were probably the MMORPG-locusts that swarm from one new MMO to the next new MMO. Losing those is just expected

    Not likely, since it has never happened to WoW before in anything approaching those numbers and since the influx of players was actually more than most MMOs even have (ever).


    Bliz had a rare opportunity to recover from years of loss and pretty much just screwed the pooch with their current "vision". Clearly, the vision is flawed. It simply didn't work.


    So holding the course on the vision might not be the best of ideas... time will tell I guess. At least it is fun to watch it unfold.

    Now that we've had a day to absorb the impact of the revelation from Blizzard that flying will not be returning during this expansion, it's probably time to shut down this thread, which was made on the premise that it may or may not return.

    We now have more up-to-date threads specifically talking about the interview along with more up-to-date polls that people can participate in.

    Closing.
