    Do you guys have any mount ideas that you would like to see ingame?
    Also, it runs through the air. It does not fly. It runs.

    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.

    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?

    You're becoming a parody of yourself.

    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.

    Also, we should be getting new content on a fairly regular basis. One ugly reskin every 6-8 months doesn't cut it.
    They have an entire expansion they're working on, if you missed that memo. And the mount isn't a reskin.

    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?

    Yeah, why has it taken them this long and still no wings?? Why don't they make wings mounts in games? It would be the coolest thing. Stupid april fools jokes always make the best ideas.

    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

    Completely agree, they should give us faction specific air ships that allow us to take the helm and drive around! (i.e. Zepplins, full size)

    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.

    So? Are you the authority on what a flying horse would definitively look like?

    Yeah, this isn't a new problem.
    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.

    argumentum ad hominem
    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.

    Yup, it is.
    And again, this is the norm, not an exception.


    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?
    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.

    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.

    But you don't pay to extra to get that mount. And tbh you can basicly get the new mount without wow-sub since you get it by playing Heartstone.

    Well, it seems to be working. At least we are all white knights, sheep and fanbois that are just brainwashed. But how comethat you clever guys who see through all the evil sheeming of this evil gaming company still pay?

    Would you rather have a different looking horse or a raid tier?

    Yeah, well..totally ignoring that if that new money cow is not the type of game I enjoy, they only get me to test it and say "no thanks". Come on dudes...how can Blizzard fire all designers, only have people scheme how to milk everyone but still somehow get people to play the games? Don't games have to be good to be played by people? Oh, I guess that is where the "brainwashed" part comes in. How again do they brainwash us? I don't even see commercials for the game....

    The amount of tinfoil hattery leaves me speechless

    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.
