If these rumours are true, it implies Blizzard want us to spend our spare time redoing old content on 5 different alts.Something tells me that even their stupidist game designer wouldn't come up with this idea, as it's a recipe for disaster. How many times can you do the same quest, or same zones again before getting bored? The ones like levelling are more forgiving but for the average joe it's probably around the 3rd alt that you think 'screw this'. For the first year of the game it's different but I'm assuming most people who play WoW now aren't new comers but the fanbase who've played for several years, in the US/Europe anyway.Having said that I like the sound of making ressurection Azeroth from a huge beatifully design, but dead pair of continents to somewhere we all hang out in again. And the flying mounts wouldn't be that hard for them to add in, they have simply said in the past they had no plans to, but that could be U-turned to fit in with the event.Also this rumour would fit in the fact that people enjoy doing classic raids. BC ones you don't see so often in LFG, except the occasional BT one.
I refuse to believe anything that is not a blue post that confirms any of this stuff that is from a "source" which isn't even named.Sure, its posted on sites that have been known to be good, but the changes are so ridiculous that I highly doubt they can be true. Seriously, Thrall giving up his throne to Garrosh of all people? No, not going to happen, he's done way too much crap to just get up and walk off to be some guardian.Bloodhoof getting killed BY Garrosh? What would be the point of the Tauren even staying with the Horde in the first place? NONE.Tauren preists and paladins? No, just no. They have no connection with the Light. The Elune is very different then the Light. There is a possibility that this could happen if they go off a conversation saying that the Light to the tauren is supposely the sun instead of the moon, but its too long of a shot in my opinion.Nothing happening with the Alliance at all? No changes? King Varian doesn't have some grand plan if Garrosh is taking over the Horde? I can't see him not wanting to take more action then.The whole goblin and worgen thing has been getting hammered at Blizzard for years now, so I'm guessing some journalist just figured that was the best combo for new races and just went with that, making it less likely that it is credible since it was something so obvious. Did we ask for blood elves in BC? Nope, but we got them.Also, no new content? Just re-doing all the old content? I know Blizzard can sometimes get a tad lazy at times, but this just takes the cake. I don't think even they would go that low and simply change low level zones. Sure, we would all like to see old world zones changed, but adding no new content at all isn't the way to go if you want to encourage that. People get bored, and with nothing new, it will start too much QQ on the forums.Flying in Azeroth? I remember clearly that Blizzard had said mulitple times they never want to do that because it would allow high level players to cruise around and gank way too much, along with the constant terrorizing of low level towns.All of this stuff is just is either:A) Not smart or lazyB) Too obvious of a bad move, orC) Make no sense lore-wiseMy apologies for the wall-o-text, but I had to say this.
Most ridiculous ideas and my opinion:1. Tauren Paladin - Just wtf. 2. Undead Hunter - Vulture and Canine pets will view their master as a snack.3. Worgen as an Alliance race - I don't even know. Is Kate Beckinsale gonna come along and blow our heads off?4. General dramatic events taking place within the Horde - What about Alliance? SW still plays annoying background music?Most logical ideas and my opinion:1. Goblins allegiance with the Horde - It's not like they haven't been providing zeppelins and stuff. Horde need their own puntable race that Allys can pick on.2. Troll Druid - They view animals as gods and have had several links to animals in the past. 3. Human Hunter - Go shoot something as a human rogue and you will understand. 4. Blood Elf Warrior - They look like !@#$ed off homosexual rights activists anyways.
I simply don't understand why Cairn is being killed. Like someone else said, wtf did he do? Sure they might put in there that it was a sneak attack and none of the Tauren in game know, but the only problem is that we know the truth. Do they honestly think I'm going to continue playing horde if our faction leader is traitorous like that? Horde is seriously getting worked over this supposed expansion, and it seems nothing is changing for Alliance. If that's not a case for calling bullocks, I don't know what is.Also, Garrosh declares war on the Alliance? That is completely pointless on PvE servers. I don't know much about lore, but don't the two factions have an agreement to work together for the greater good, and just fighting each other if they get in the way (pvp servers)? In the sad event that this is all somehow true and this is actually Blizzard's intentions, then I'll say it again as I've said in some other topics: Blizzard themself is the wow-killer everyone's been waiting for. I say because I will be canceling my account if this comes to pass. I'm addicted to wow, so something like this happening is what I've been waiting for to help me break the addiction xD.
gentlemen, this expantion could be the end of the world.............. of warcraftquoted from the south-park episode we all love.
