    What happened to the customization for the allied races? the void elves had a lot of customization at launch! the nightborne need more customization it is unfair that the elf race ofthe alliance has so much love and the elves of the horde do not!

    Lol, they basically copy pasted all the customization from Blood Elves, including the new ones. It's not like they are getting love, it's just it's already done.
    The elves of the horde are the most picked race of all the time so there's that too, they are getting quite the love.

    As a horde player I am super disappointed! They said that the allied races would have more customization but now it seems that only the alliance has the only allied race that had customization at the same level as a main race and the horde nothing!
    give me night elf customization for my nightborne !! the void elves were always elf allied race with more customization! and now they gave them much more !! the elf allied race of the horde is the worst allied races in customization!

    Glad to be a Necrolord main. My DK will be the Necromancer these forums have waited for. Then jump on that colorful mount.

    Its beeautiful. That gotta sting.

    What you seemed to have missed in my original statement with me using the image of Metzen is it is an example of what makes a good con versus a shitty con. No one cares about Brack monologuing, we don't tune into Blizzcon to hear that.
    Completely agree.
    That all really screamed "creatively bankrupt" when all they do is re-releasing their old stuff. Now even the arcade games, lol. I guess we can be happy that patch 9.1 is not just a re-released 8.1, i mean, it's basically the same anyway. Raid, check, Megadungeon, check, grind mini-zone, check. Something innovative and new? Naw, we are Blizzard, we don't do new.
    Have fun when in 2 years we re re-release Starcraft 1 again! Oh and Blizzcon in November will this Blizzcon re-released, but with a modern designed website ! See you there.

    You are the cancer that is rotting MMO-C forums from the inside.

    This is a MMO, an entirely new raid and a megadungeon is fuckton of content - there are MMOs out there that did not get a single raid instance for the last 6 years.
