that reminds me, I actually intentionally took names like "cloud", "squall", "Sephiroth" etc on a bunch of servers when I signed up day 1 just for trolling purposes. I may literally pay $15 to log back in on all of them to keep them away from stupid people who want them really badly.

Interestingly, it is not enough to activate your account... you must log in to each and every character.  Small price to pay for your humanitarian efforts, but wanted to make sure that detail was not overlooked.

Self describing URL is self describing. Not too shabby with their in-game engine these days.

I'm sure there's more to come. This is just pre-game spin cycle filler.

It's pretty sad that they can't work the player character into the plot even when they're using in-engine cinematics. I was actually feeling a slight itch to play my goblin last week, but watching that stuff, ugh. Never mind.

They aren't really in-game cinematics in that sense. They're custom animated and pre-rendered cinematics with in-game assets.

It's a spoiler warning pre-video. Skip to the end of it so that the next video in the playlist plays.

Would those of you who aren't playing and/or don't care about spoilers, please not come back to this forum and discuss what you see in those videos?

At the very least, use spoiler tags.

I get that this is the place where we snark on Blizzard for being a bunch of idiots, but I'd just as soon wait, and watch these things in-game.

Thanks.

I will say they really look good. In particular, there's a scene where a character is talking and the mouth isn't the old clamshell. Impressive if that's the level of detail in all of the new models.

Is flying still out for the expansion zones?
Current take is out until 6.1 where it will be "reviewed with community feedback taken into consideration". Which is, you know, what they've been saying all along.

When they publicly eat crow on flying in the new expack, I might give a shit and consider going back. Until then, they can continue to not get my money.

Won't happen.  They've always hedged their words on it, so much that I believe they always intended to have flying a year into the expac but really don't want people to get their hopes up.

Don't get me wrong - I'm not Paelos expecting a personal email of apology. But I won't go back until flying it added properly. Or to put it more correctly, I won't consider going back until then.

It doesn't have to be a personal email, just a nice form letter email will be just fine.  why so serious?

(I haven't read this whole thread)

What do you mean? Flying in the new expansion? Don't they always launch without it, and it's a carrot at whatever max_level is?

Do they now allow flying in Panda for everybody, or do you have to get to 80 or whatever? I haven't kept up.

No flying in the new expansion at launch. Maybe coming at the first major post-xpac patch.

BC had flying, in Outland, once you got to max level and paid your fee.
LK had flying, in Northrend, once you got to max level and paid your fee. Or was it level 78? I don't remember now.
Cata had flying, in Azeroth (plus Deepholm) if you were level 80+. The level cap was 85. Can't remember if there was a new fee involved.
Mists has flying, in Pandaria, once you get to max level and pay your fee.
In Warlords, there might be flying, in Draenor-2, once the dev team finds out how many people will quit because they can't fly stops hedging around the issue and gives us a straight answer.

Let's be honest, will you even be max level before the first major patch?

No if I bought in this time it would be well after the fact. I'm no longer a play at release person. I doubt I'll play this at all unless I got the expansion for free (which is essentially what they should sell this for since it's a glorified patch in most cases). They would have to prove that aren't being stupid anymore, but pretty much everything about the expansion sounds like reheated ideas with the biggest feature (garrisons) being gutted and turned into something lackluster.

Add in no flying and why would we bother coming back? Games are supposed to be FUN, especially older games, not a series of ridiculous cockblocks. The whole expansion seems lazy, and not allowing flying would be for only one reason, they don't want to make all the art assets. Invisible walls instead of full terrains. And yet they STILL took longer than any other expansion to get this one out.

Really? Being able to ride flying mounts is the one feature of this game that's keeping you guys from subbing up?

I find that unlikely, at best.

Hardly. But the idea of the world not being shrunk by zipping around anymore seems fun. So then I consider coming back and realize all the things that I dislike about the game.

Flying was literally the first step in the game becoming as antisocial as it now is.

Flying made me enjoy it more, but then I got my green proto-drake on my second attempt and that was my favorite mount ever, even beating out the zhevra.  And then on the fifth or sixth with my other character.

I wonder if Nevermore ever got one...

No doubt flying IS fun but I believe it disconnects players from each other(And the ground awesome, for real) and that disconnect when compounded over and over by other design decisions makes the game a lot less sticky.

I don't play MMOs to have forced social interactions with strangers (or internet-friends). I did that in EQ for long enough, and while I had great guildmates from various places around the world, those relationships are long gone. I play MMOs for persistent character development, a large-enough sandbox with enough theme park so I can make my own fun by exploring or wandering around - or go for a quest/NPC-driven ride, and to play socially not with internet randoms or guildmates, but with actual friends and loved-ones. Flying and the freedoms it brings helps that enormously.
