    It won't stop people from making dumb fucking arguments like, "Blizzard's 2019 Q3 to Q4 MAUs went down by 3 million. This is obviously because of Mechagnomes being released."

    I will be doing the same thing I do for every other bad Alliance allied race like Fat as fuck humans and palette swapped to yellow draenei in that I will never get the achievement to recruit them. I will simply pretend they don't exist.

    I bet if the Mechagnomes added were the Northrend Mechagnomes, and not the mechagon ones, this wouldn’t be an issue. Even if they looked the same, but, with the torso also being roboty.

    That clickbait title though.

    "Going on strike" over an optional piece of content that you don't have to take any part in?
    What does "going on strike" mean? You'll stop playing a game you otherwise enjoy?

    Pretty sure this is dumb.

    Maybe Lightbound Orcs in a coming expansion!

    I don't think many people will really see it that way and I'd be very surprised if this acted as a final straw for players, especially as it's likely to be timed to coincide with new content. If anything I think there will probably be a slight surge of subs (not related to the new race) rather than a drop-off.

    Mechagnomes are deffo gonna happen. Making an AR out of one of the least played Alliance races and make them look exactly the same is pretty brainless. I mean Vulpera do use the Goblin skeleton but they are not goblins with some changed limbs. They don't know what to give to the Alliance despite having some options for a while now.

    You can't always get what you want.

    There's a bloody good song about this.

    I mean it’s basically a reskin of the most unpopular race in the game. We already have 2 reskins on alliance in the form of LFD which is a reskin for another unpopular race and dark iron dwarf which is also a reskin for an unpopular race. So yeah, it feels a little bad, at this point all these races feel like subraces as opposed to allied races.

    Either way it’s certainly not something I’d quit over. I just won’t play it like the other 99% of the alliance playerbase. We somehow have all these new races like Ankoan and Sethrak as well as older races such as Vrykul, Broken and ogres yet we continue to get reskins of regular ass races like LFD, Highmountain, dark iron, etc. Feel like these allied races could’ve easily been customization for the regular races.

    Maybe Mimiron-esque gnomes would’ve gotten a better reaction. These mechagnomes just look like regular gnomes with a robotic part or two and you can’t even customize the chest which just looks weird.

    Alliance players are used to disappointment by now. BFA has served it up in truckloads.

    Which makes them perfect for becoming an integral part of gnomish society as it feels like a natural evolution for parts of the existing gnome culture. Customization options is what mechagnomes should be at most, not an allied race.

    I don't know why I'd unsub over that. It seems catastrophically petty considering I can just not play them.

    Not really, unless we talk about you?
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    It's not them per se, it's that they are taking the place of something else. I thought Jinyu would be the worst possible AR but they'd be much better than these abomination s

    Just curious what’s wrong with Jinyu? They’re different from anything playable. We have nothing with scales.

    Ehh, not everything that gets added into game has to be loved by everyone. I, personally, don't care about gnomes of any kind so I'm frosty about this, but I can't deny that there is more than enough Tinker fans who would love this shit, so /shrug.
