It's just a God damn mount.

Pretty much a reflection of the amount of effort blizzard puts into the game these days. The same old gear sets just get recolored and re-released as well.
I think they fired a lot of game designers and hired a bunch of dudes to scheme about how to extract every last cent out of us.
The mount is far from free. First, you don't own it. You pay to access it every month.A goddamn free mount...
Also, we should be getting new content on a fairly regular basis. One ugly reskin every 6-8 months doesn't cut it.
You know that the entirety of the sunwell tier shared armor and weapon models with that season's PvP gear, right?Pretty much a reflection of the amount of effort blizzard puts into the game these days. The same old gear sets just get recolored and re-released as well.
You're becoming a parody of yourself.I think they fired a lot of game designers and hired a bunch of dudes to scheme about how to extract every last cent out of us.
That's true of every mount, from the Talbuk that was a remodeled ram to the hawkstrider that was a remodeled plainstrider to Ashes of Al'ar that was a remodeled gryphon.The mount is far from free. First, you don't own it. You pay to access it every month.
They have an entire expansion they're working on, if you missed that memo. And the mount isn't a reskin.Also, we should be getting new content on a fairly regular basis. One ugly reskin every 6-8 months doesn't cut it.
I kinda agree with the people saying it's not a big deal. As someone else said, it's not exactly the mount you get for killing Sargeras, so chill a bit. :P
EU first PG wave 30, come at me bros.
There have not been a Alicorn horse yet to unite all the horses against the evil humanoid bipedals. Raid: "Rise of the horse power"
Therefor it has not yet been enough horse mounts.
Seems like it's a pretty old problem, meaning that complaining about it now (especially when it's intermittently "true" to begin with) is kind of pointless. And especially especially considering that that's only true in this case for something as trivial as PvP armor color schemes that, for all intents in purposes, are "new" to each faction.Yeah, this isn't a new problem.
No, I was just pointing out you're coming off as sounding ridiculous. Breaking down your argument was an addition to that; not predicated on it.argumentum ad hominem
And again, this is the norm, not an exception.Yup, it is.
The same thing that's justified you playing at any other time. Besides; a single mount (which doesn't even involve any in-WoW effort) could hardly be described as what you're claiming it's supposed to be. You're claiming it's poor placation when there's no reason to believe it's even intended to be any form of placation at all.An entire expansion that they're working on and will be charging us $50 dollars for and the price of a subscription to play. What are we receiving in the meantime that justifies our paying the sub? A pony with wings?

Seems like this issue is entirely self-made. Who says it's made to keep people playing? How would a mount keep people playing anyway? This was a mount created in 5.2 or 5.3 which they struggled with finding ways to implement. Now they finally do, and now it's a reward for WoW players who tried out Hearthstone. Not something to 'justify paying the subs'. Nothing needs to. It sucks that there is no new content, but you could just unsubscribe, like I am.
They aren't going to put effort into a mount that's both free and just a promotion. Blizzard was just taking advantage of people that are obsessed with mount collecting by bribing them to play their new money cow.

Would you rather have a different looking horse or a raid tier?
The amount of tinfoil hattery leaves me speechless

^I'd rather have both.
I would rather have 10 protadrakes than 2 china drakes
Still arguing that devs should have spend more time designing a mount that you pay nothing to get? You don't even need to spend money on HS to win 3 matches! Apparently saying this makes me "self-entitled", go figure.
