    just use /lol they cant remove that.

    And if they do, make a macro that inserts the targets name that does the same thing as /spit

Especially as this is a Collectors Edition mount. It's not a regular Shop Mount. The only thing I agree with haters of it is that Blizzard should have released a physical Collectors Edition too.
    You sound like a person who likes to use analogies to justify their poor financial decisions.
    But at the end of the day - if you don't like it, don't buy it.
    Be careful for what you wish because it might have already happened and ruined the game. You've seen what's happened to WoW's population right?
    But stop wrapping cyber bullying with "Blizzard is so evil and the Item Shop destroys my gaming fun QQ". Because all you do is harrassing people who most times don't even know why, because surprise surprise most people don't even know what people on mmo-champion think about evil evil shop mounts.
    You call it harassing while I call it protesting.

    My plans are to see TBC completely and then unsub. I don't plan to get into WOTLK. Blizzards way of handling classic TBC has left a very bad impression for me. I didn't play Classic Vanilla because I already had on private servers, but since they released TBC I thought why not try Blizzards version. That was a mistake on my end but I will see TBC through completion. I'm pretty sure by WOTLK they'll have the stupid token so better not to go into WOTLK.

    Nobody likes them and it's pretty universally hated. That's why Final Fantasy Online won't last because they too have mounts.

    It's because people like me would /spit on anyone with a store mount. You don't see this removed on Shadowlands for this reason. No amount of affirmative action is going to get Blizzard out of the California lawsuit.
    And they are right.. because woke corporate performative activism has worked to cover way more horrendous actions of other multinational billion dollar companies.. so why not work for blizz..
    We talking about the court of public opinion because nothing Blizzard does will make people like them? Unless they either fire Bobby Kotick or buy themselves back from Activision nobody will ever like Blizzard ever again.

    You sound very bitter over trivial things that ultimately don't affect you. Honestly, and seriously, I really recommend leaving the PC for a few hours. This ain't healthy at *all*.

    Can't they just ban the shit out of people who spit on the peeps with the mounts? Sounds like obnoxious kids we don't want in the community anyway.

    Is it actually that often people spit on them anyway? Haven't noticed it happening.

    You would think so, but sadly a big part of them are not children, and most of them did /spit on people becouse of a certain streamer telling them to.

    On one hand... If you are so pathetic about your shitty, 14 year old content (and i mean the purists who bawl over every change) that you get mad at people for buying some edition with a mount in it... ya' kinda deserve getting slapped in some way? Like, shut up, man, i played it when that came out. You aren't anything special just for playing that now, 2nd-Row. Sit down.

    But this is also not... harassment. It's an emote. Im not playing BC, i did that 14 years and thats that for me. So this just seems very idiotic. Thats almost as dumb as when they removed the Troll-Emote about killing two dwarfs.
    If you are offended by something i said, im probably at least 45% sorry about it and there is a 3% Chance it was not on purpose!

    It's the first of apparently multiple steps being taken (as mentioned by Muffinus on Twitter) to start pushing back against toxicity ingame while they're pushing back against toxicity in the workplace. /spit not broadcasting a chat message when another player is targeted is an easy, quick fix just like renaming the Afrasiabi references and removing Field Marshal Afrasiabi in favor of Field Marshal Stonebridge; I doubt it took longer than a few minutes' worth of coding for all the aforementioned barring a brief window when Stonebridge's model was bugged out before being fixed. I'd be surprised if that was the only thing they implemented, especially since Muffinus mentioned systems other games use to discourage toxicity (though he didn't name any names, so it could be as simple as automating a system to search for certain words or phrases in ingame chat channels to something as complicated as machine learning to identify toxicity in the chat logs).
    Be seeing you guys on Bloodsail Buccaneers NA!

    In my day we didn't have World of Warcraft or Guild Wars. We had World War 2, and when you shot at the Germans it aggroed five thousand of their friends!

Mentioned i dont want non natives in my group for the obvious ping issue and got a nice little ban for it lol. Was told nothing I said was wrong, but it could be interpreted wrong
    Lol at receiving an infraction because of this. Tone it down mods, jeez

    Except they do sell currency and instead of xp flasks they outright let you boost.

    Mods in these forums are insane with the infractions. I ll take the infraction now just to prove a point cause I ve had it before for literally minor stuff. And everytime the reason was "discussion of moderation is not allowed" so I d wager you are probably getting infracted as well.

    They super did. I remember quite a few disparaging remarks when I got sparkle pony all those years ago. The shit now is pretty much on par for the old store mounts.

    Then i'll take it. Can't go around throwing infractions at every single little thing. Save it for when people say truly shitty stuff and being terrible to each other.

    I mean... except they can. This is mmo champion we're talking about. Also check my signature, it wouldn't surprise me if they get all pissy and toss some out because we dare talk about their bullshit and stop licking their boots for 5 seconds.

    And it's still literally just vanity items with 0 impact on gameplay.

    Why do people lose their minds over vanity items? Just don't buy it if you don't like it. It's that easy.
