I speak my mind, I don't sugar coat it and I don't read replies because most of the time it's someone who apparently "got their feelings hurt".
The model looks like zapdos, just a different color.thats the lighting one, your thinking moltress.
also I'm kinda shocked blizz hasn't done something like this flaming dragon on fire.
rofl at alliance pvp mount thats defiant lvl 50 mount!! Die in hell blizzard rot till worms will fill your eyeballs.
i love the new mounts
The "its a lot of work" argument simply doesn't work. In addition to the sub, the $40 expansion pack fee is supposed to be for "new" content, not bullshit like Icecrown Citadel (ie: Black Temple with skulls thrown on everything, missing any variety or decor).
Yep. When kids are producing better models than you are it's time to reevaluate the quality of your output as a game designer.
Given the position they are in they really have no excuse for producing crappy models. Furthermore, model design is not a subject which you can attempt to mystify and claim that it costs a ton of money. There are people in the community who have taken a multimedia course, there are people who have modded games and there are people who do 3D artwork professionally themselves, so we know what the effort involved is.
These gladiator mounts are essentially armor added to an existing model, so we're looking at how long it would take a 3D designer to design that armor. 1 week, 2 at most.
$90 an hour, 8 hrs a week, five days in a week, 2 weeks. 90 x 8 x 10 = U$7200 to produce those glad mounts and that's probably being generous. There just aren't enough variables involved for that estimate to not be pretty accurate.
Subscriptions of only the amount of people that will earn that mount, not including the people for whom that mount is an aspiration, already FAR outstrips the minimal effort involved in creating it. There's not really any excuse for it and it's production of shoddy work like this which is why WoW is down 600k subscribers, they simply weren't willing to pay for the gaming equivalent of being fed scraps.

All the mounts... /yawn
I think both horde and alliance have nice mounts, but the sheer number of each type makes us long for the ones at the other side.
new Mounts that come into mind straight away:
4 wheeled buggy
Monocycle (or how do you call it?)
Hydra like ground mount
Plane flying mount
Squid water mount
Everything except horses, tigers/lions, raptors, bears and flying dragons

Update: For the glory drake you need to do the heroic versions of the bosses and achievements, which only a few percent of the player base managed to do so far.
only a few people managed to get 13/13 HC, which I suppose is your idea of 'any pve content'. (or not?)
So following that logic, that would mean that the majority (dare I give a percentage of 95+ at the risk of people flaming me for pullling random numbers out of my ass? Yes I do!!) of the players are vegetables.
I very disagree with you.

People can be whoever they choose to be on the internet - It is strange that so many people choose to be stupid.
every time I see someone mentioning the word "rouge" I get the urge to say "yes, we are overpowdered"...
so blizz is making us not want to get glad?
If they wanted to chuck on some armour for the gladiator mounts, they should have done it to a Proto-drake model. Anyways, I like the PvP mounts
HEY FUCKERS.... listen up. If you're complaining about the gladiator mounts, go to hell. BC Gladiator mounts? = Netherdrake + armor. WotLK Gladiator mounts? = ICC drake + armor. (Although, yes I'm aware the model of the bone drake was out for the early Wrath gladiators before ICC was out) Cata Gladiator mounts = Twilight drake + armor. You're surprised? Would you rather it had been the stone drake + armor, or the wind drake + armor?
