I'm amazed that Blizzard needs to remind people that content gets overlooked if they allow people to skip it entirely, just because they chant "choice!".
Oh yeah, allow flying in Battlegrounds and see how many people choose to stay on ground mounts, since that's how the entire battleground is supposed to be played.
And that's why games needs to put healthy limits to improve gameplay.
Has there been a significant portion in the debate saying they want flying to be removed just because classic-hurr-durr? Not because flying right away lets you avoid pretty much all danger and environment design.It won't bring back the feeling you had in Vanilla, no matter how rabidly you try to defend their decision and make yourself believe it will.
Doubt it, too be honest.
