    Yeah either could work. My idea was just away around it, but still having some on his back.

    Yes, pretty much.

    Oh shit that's a really good idea.

    It doesn't matter what their profits are if their budget isn't increasing. Activision-Blizzard the board decided that. We have proof that Blizzard has almost no control. Jeff Kaplan had to go to the board and beg to be allowed to cancel Titan and start Overwatch instead.

    Sure they should have double or triple the budget they have now, but they don't. And its not the average everyday blizzard employees fault either. Its the Ceo and financial board of Actiblizz. Maybe that will change with Microsfot, maybe not. We will see.

    Right...don't play then, there is other options to pick, no one want to replace the current ones, but add other ones.

    thats the thing with taste, some people find the current ones awful too.



    They 100% could if they want to.

    And, its not even necessary, give the basic race with no customizations, not even horns, and people will be happy with it.
    Sure, I agree. Give the option for every other race after the starting zone. At the barber shop.

    Guys Murozond is going back in time and he will bring Galakrond.

    Then they are going to fuse and become Murokrond, and the raid will be fighting alternate previous bosses of other timelines.

    which would imply it is the same shoulder/tabard/belt between both forms. it's not great but it does seem to suggest it is actual armour rather than barber shop modification. (Note the 'I think' part though so maybe none of this at all)
    Or maybe more. Who knows. I think we could get them to let us wear legs too tbh. Cloaks helms and boots and weapons makes sense.

    Yeah, it might be copium, but I'm hoping they increase wows budget. We wont see the effects of it until 11.0 or maybe not until 12.0, but we can hope.

    It's also not really overlapping with Arcane Mage much, if at all.

    I don't think they should even try to do anything like this. People will spin it around as lame storytelling because even though you're supposed to be trapped in the past 10k years ago, you will still be able to go anywhere you want for gameplay reasons.

    Increase budget AND change some of the staff around. They need to put people who care in charge.

    Tuskarr would be sick, but there is a precedent that a preorder race is linked to the prior expansion.

    The preorder BFA races were from Legion.

    So either a shadowlands race, or Darkfallen.

    Its kind of weird for elmentals to turn into flesh without the curse of flesh but eh whatever.

    I think Ion cares. He cares about the number side of things more, but he cares. Danny cares too, he's just not that great at storytelling. Someone can care and not be a great fit for a role. Not to say I think either should be fired or forced out. Ion would be great as Lead systems dev or raid designer. Danny was a good quest designer.

    Idk how they would take demotions though.

    I dunno, there's a female model now, and I think it was revealed that the pre-order pet is a baby Tuskarr.

    Anyway;



    Gimmie!

    When the encrypted pre-order items were datamined, one of the encrypted models used male vulpera models. Not sure what that would point to:

    https://www.wowhead.com/news/datamin...edition-325627

    Besides the mount and pet, one of the unknown encrypted models shares many animations with the Vulpera Male model, but not much more is known about it.

  15. #52795
    Imagine Tuskarr/Dark Fallen preorder Allied Races. Just try and stop me from leveling a Tuskarr.

    Seems like it would be a good fit for that child tuskarr they showed off, though it could be for like a Kobold (dnd style) pet

    Also wowhead posted an interview

    https://www.wowhead.com/news/dragonf...lessons-326775

    Nice to see they are open to Dracthyr being other classes down the line. Though it sounds like it will be really down the line.

    So, i was reading some interviews and found this:

    The team thought of the new race early in development.
    So, the dracthyr was not being build that many years back, but in early development of dragonflight

    The team realized early that none of the existing classes fit the theme of the race very well.
    The team have serious brain limitations to think "existing classes can't fit a draconic race"

    This is the level of wow devs we had, do these people even play RPG or read their own game to say shit like this? like we enver saw dragons being basically mages, warriors and druids?

    Holy shit.
    Unbelievable people are eating the story "this race has being developed for years"

    Its the same mantra of "shadowlands story is the final chapter of the warcraft 3 story"

    It doesn't matter what their profits are if their budget isn't increasing. Activision-Blizzard the board decided that. We have proof that Blizzard has almost no control. Jeff Kaplan had to go to the board and beg to be allowed to cancel Titan and start Overwatch instead.
    But budget is increasing....unless they are lying about.

    Sure, I agree. Give the option for every other race after the starting zone. At the barber shop.
    See, its not hard to find common ground

    Although, i still think it can be done inormally, we don't know for sure how their starting zone is, but apparently is the same visage day the other dragons do, per Dansuer words.

    I'm sure they're not scrapping WoW because of this:

    https://www.pcgamesn.com/world-of-warcraft/xbox
    “I grew up at a time where Blizzard was almost as synonymous as Pixar in terms of quality,” Spencer says a bit later. “That’s where I aspire those brands to get to, and I’d love the opportunity to go work with creative teams to make that possible.”
    At the worst, it's going to stay the same.

    The value of Activision-Blizzard is completely tied to its IPs, why would Microsoft buy such an expensive studio to make new IPs? Doesn't make any sense.

    The success of Lost Ark, the initial success of New World, and FFXIV getting more market share proves that a sizeable branch of gamers still wanna play MMOs, the genre is not dead yet, so unless this gamer branch "cancels" WoW, I don't believe it's gonna die, not on Microsoft hands.

    PS 1: Keep in mind, that before Microsoft brought Activision-Blizzard though, I said literally the opposite many times, and I was already buying some candles for the funeral.

    There's also a huge difference between how the gaming community sees Bob Kotick and Phill Spencer...
