    Ok, I think I'm starting to see where you're coming from. But using that logic, now that the holidays are over, wouldn't that tend to suggest that Blizzard would be free to release content more often, since players aren't going to be limited?

    I'm not saying this to trap you. I'm just trying to get a full grasp of your point of view. Even if players didn't like having to play over the holidays(I'm not sure I agree with that, given that gamers tend to use their free time to...you know...game), the devs wouldn't stop working for that same amount of time. Except for the holiday break itself, Blizzard would still be working on development.

    Wouldn't that imply, then, that 8.1.5 should have had more than it did, and that 8.2 would be right on its heels instead of potentially being delayed until june or even july, because of the backlog of content that was still being developed while players were taking it easy?

    Ion is oblivious to the reality of everything?

    Fixed that for ya.

    Ion is trying so very hard create a legacy for coming up with the next awesome thing WoW offered. I'd say he's downright desperate, as none of his ideas as a game director has done anything but cause loss of subs.

    He made a much better encounters designer than a lead developer.

    An ideal battle for him remains 5vs5 arena of identical characters (class and abilities). He doesn't know how to think in other categories in terms of design, so every step that he will take under your pressure in this situation will bring you closer to this *points up direction* state. He doesn't consider other conditions (design) than those that they have been trying to push on players over past (5?) years. But, well, it's untrue for this particular game, no matter how you'd dance around conditions that they created (and continues?) and, as you understand, I don't speak here purely about PvP, but generally about this game as a whole.

    Which is what was happening before they introduced the gear quest to get Alliance to participate in the first place.

    What would you guys think about a bunch of 5v5 instances scattered around the map, with PVP-centric objectives inside to reward players for going in and doing them. Inaccessible to a raid in the same way you can't enter dungeons in a raid. By completing the objectives inside the instance, maybe spawns powerful NPCs in the open world that larger groups could fight and maybe kill for loot or rally around to help ward off or break up 40-1 situations?

    It's not a fully formed idea, but it would at least be more interesting than just the "ROFLMAO I farm u!" joke of WPVP that's happening right now.

    No. Thats WHY alliance got the quests because alliance all opted OUT of WM before the quest.

    ...that's what I'm saying. They opted out because they got ganked constantly.

    Atleast now they have a reason to turn it on even if just briefly which is better than 99% not even bothering because of horde gank squads.
