    Your not being forced into PvP as its your choice to stay in an area that can get you flagged for PvP, the zombie is turned into an NPC that can attack everything apart from other zombies, you can just afk in an area where zombies are unable to get to you as they cant mount or fly, there is plenty areas where a zombie could never get near you so its your choice to stay in an area where your able to be attacked.

    Well I think it's safe to say I speak for some since a lot of other people feel the same way as you can see in this thread and if you have been playing I'm sure you've seen people in general chat complain as well.

    Regarding the bold part. You mean like the people griefing others and calling it "fun" and expecting the people affected by them to feel the same way?

    I want everybody to have fun even the griefers but the way it is now it seems the only people having fun are people who love griefing and people who love PVP gameplay. That's why it's been said over and over that if there was just a way for people to opt out of the PVP there would be no issue. People who like to grief others can continue to do so while the others who just want to enjoy the PVE aspect of the event can do so without assholes ruining it for them.

    What's wrong with that?

But it lasts a short time (just a week this time), and it adds a whole new level of excitement to the game that's not normally there. The player-zombies are mostly contained to the primary cities (SW/Org), and you can easily skip those 99% of the time. If someone's out killing NPCs, hop back on your main and kill rares in IC, solo old dungeons/raids, or join in with the other zombies. It's likely to be ten years or more (if ever) before this event happens again, so relax and enjoy the very limited-time fun.
    It wouldn't be a WoW discussion without people bitching about something now would it?

    Just dienrez and it's gone. Sure, you may get it again, and again, but this is far tamer than the original.

    It isn't griefing when it's the intent of the event.

    Again, the intent is to spread the plague for a week. You're not meant to do things you want to do in safe zones because those safe zones are now war zones. That's the whole premise.

    Suck it up man. It's for a week. I don't participate in it because I don't enjoy it but you don't see me crying like a kid who grew up on participation trophies.

    I can do everything I want to do without it disrupting me because I'm not some lazy slob who's too lazy for a god damn video game. There's other cities to go to to do your auction house shit. Who the fuck sits in an AH for a notably long time anyways?? You should be in and out.

    Again, you act like it's everyone except griefers sharing your view. That's just completely wrong. This is your view. You are not having fun. And no, I don't see any people in trade chat complaining, not like that matters anyway.

    Just let people have fun for once. Not everything has to be about you and your special needs. It's a very short one time event, where people can go wild. And indeed, there is nothing wrong with that.

    Um...yes it did. If war mode isn't enabled then you can't take part in pvp and players of the opposite faction can't attack you. This event overrides that and forces players that want nothing to do with pvp into being flagged. That's utter shit design.

    Are you really incapable of understanding what is being said? Forcing players to stay in the air constantly or be flagged for pvp is terrible game design. War mode exists for a reason. Forcing players to be flagged whether they have war mode enabled or not is stupid.

    No, this simply isnt true. You can absolutely fight the opposite faction with war mode off. War mode is not a guarantee.

    Lol what? The only way you will be able to interact with the opposite faction is if you purposely walk into the opposing factions cities. If I'm in Duskwood as a human and an orc runs by, I can't attack them unless war mode is enabled. You have no idea what you're talking about.

    Neither you, I or anyone else here decides what is "griefing" or not. Only Blizzard does that as Blizzard decides the rule we play by. For this week Blizzard has changed the rules of the game.
    Apparently Blizzard wants this event to be a free-for-all kill everything in sight event, no matter faction/warmode on or off.
    So there is no griefing here.

    You have 3 options:
    1. Accept the temporary rules and play by them
    2. Not log on
    3. Whine here and cry your tears and get validation by all the other Safespace-Susans here on mmo-champion.

    You have chosen option 3 and you are not alone. At least you can comfort yourself with that.
    But at the end of the day only Blizzard decides what is griefing or not...

    I just proved you can attack other players with war mode off.

    Notice how the example I gave involved trying to attacking a player OUTSIDE of a faction city. So you didn't prove ANYTHING, dude lol.

    "If war mode isn't enabled then you can't take part in pvp" This is your claim.

    I have refuted it.

    Are you new to WoW? This is the third time a 'scourge-like' event has happened in WoWs history which also were met with some primo forum posts.

    Suck it up buttercup. The zombie problem is only around until SL launch and has only really been an "issue" for the last week, so not even a full 7 days yet. Learn to deal with it. Everyone knew this was coming and what to expect so having these grand revelations as to why this event is hated is a tad 2008. The game has been so dull for the last few months and now are actually having fun with it. Work around it and stop wasting thread space.

    If you get infected, go cleanse yourself. EzPz.

    I've got tons of empathy. You don't know me. And I could say the same about you really. You think your "fun" is more important than others' "fun" because it makes you upset. Well, over the years I've disliked a lot of things Blizz did and everyone here told me to deal with it. At the end I did. Because it's just a game and I'd rather not get angry over meaningless bs like this.

    Now yes, I am defending this even tho some people don't like it. I'm not gonna let that make me feel bad though. This isn't some good vs evil thing. And before you tell me that my type of "fun" is griefing people, no it isn't. I've only done things with this event in Goldshire and kept it like that, and that's only for the first day. I don't like griefing or attacking other players out of nowhere. But surely if Blizzard didn't like this, they would hotfix it fight? But I guess that's how they intend it to be.

    But whatever, I'm done with this discussion, because I sure as hell love when people get personal because I have an opinion on how the game should be.

    1) Zombies are too weak. Cities are the hardest to infect because you need some level of organization. End of expac mains pop them in seconds and guards hit hard, so small zombie groups/solos are encouraged to grief in leveling zones.
    2) Low levels should probably get some sort of invulnerability to some extent. Or spawned npc zombies should appear at a level/health pool they can take on (if they don't already, all my characters are max level).
    3) There should be rewards to encourage zombie invasions and for those that want to stop them. Icecrown rewards a warfront variant, maybe this could've been for the weapons. Or even achvs for how many zones you spread infection to.
    4) It probably would've been easier to make some sort of limited time zombie pvp-game mode in one of the many maps.
    5) The pvp flagging issue is pretty bad. Sometimes I'll just randomly not be able to attack someone I was hitting literal seconds ago.

    That's my two cents on it. Zombies are easy to work around at max level, so griefing only really impacts leveling players. But playing as a zombie doesn't feel great when it's hard to survive long enough to get anything started.

    lol oh get over it. It's literally live for barely a week. Zombie apocalypse.
    It should be ruining basically everything.
    God forbid we actually have something have an all-encompassing effect... for once.
