I can bet you my left nut, that the name "Po" is going to be either locked out or taken by the time you log into the game. ;)

When I played WoW, I was a fire mage called Cracky. However, after a few years, Blizzard banned me from using that name.






Which is a shame, because with the right title I would have been called Salty Cracky.

5. Okay love the concept by why can't they do that with many many types of creatures found on Azeroth why limit it to just one and why not make more mount dailies like they did for the poison skin raptor in Ungoro? why are they holding back?


4. They should have added this in LK when they were requested to have it by multiple players including me after i took a break from the game to find that other games have done this to great fun and success. LOTRO anyone?


3. spsssh, weird.


2. Farms huh. How about having player housing, more crafted mounts especially for the engineer profession. Updating all of the engineer items to be the max level items we see in game. (where is the mortar, the flame thrower etc etc) Replacing their fail system of cosmetics with one more akin to other games with actual OUTFITS.


1. We were told the same exact thing about Cata in the beginning too, according to the lore it was supposed to be the end of the world coming, yet the entire world was quiest (accept the quest zones) one could literally just hang out outside of any town and crickets were heard, no invasions, no raiding parties from factions, no nothing. Still haven't learned from Rift yet huh Blizz?

Oh and Blizz.......It's about Pandas.


In the West, (You know.....where the majority of your market ALREADY is...) they are cute and cuddly...Like teddy bears....

5. Raised a pet raptor ingame previously, and it was tedious, but I don't mind doing that again with a dragon serpent.


4. I see scenario's as WoW's reply to GW2's playing style, no need for healers, etc. Obviously done to tackle the competition. I am looking forward to them.


3.  I am an old fan of Pokemon. But admittedly I like Pokemon better than WoW pet battles at this point, after learning about the system. This view might change once playing but I don't know, we'll see...


2. I hope the farm becomes WoW's official take on player housing but with added crops. I'm suspecting a cheap 3D Farmville rip though, to be honest, but have cautious optimism about finally getting a player home instead of avatar's being forced to hang out on park benches all day and night like tramps.


1. Garrosh is one dead Orc. Official.

I'm sorry, don't take this the wrong way, but what are you on?

Asian grinder?!

Majority of the market in the west?!

WHAT? Get a clue please & then post. Much better way to go around posting on forums.

Btw, I don't get all the hate for Pandas... Is it because its an animal unique to asia? Idk whats the problem here, enlighten me!  They have been part of the WC lore since WC III... weird hey?

------------------------------------------------------------------

On topic:

Its all good, even though its nothing new.  But the point that stood out the most for me is the farm thing. Can you say farmville inspired cashshop incomming. :S

Bah! I don't play WoW, so whatever floats their boat I guess.

I thought this was a warcraft article? It looks like an advertisement from Zynga. 4 time wasters and a promise about doing world pvp well in the future. Scenarios are time wasters. Is the gear going to be even remotley decent? No= no one will do the content. Yes = everyone will complain and blizz will cave in on it. = time sink with no meaning/no gear.


The raising the mount thing is kinda cool with the content unlocked by it, but not worth paying 60 bucks and resubbing cool. Least not for me anyway. I miss the smooth feel of the game UI and the char resposivness, but imo theres no game anymore to go with it. New expansion or not.

Oh look at you trying to call people out on drug abuse because their opinion isn't the same as yours.


And yeah, I am pretty sure WoW's NA and Euro markets are bigger than it's Asian market.


Hey, if I am wrong, then point it out if you have the facts at your disposal.


Here's a clue for ya.


Don't go around telling people to get a clue based on subjective posts.....Much better way to go around posting on forums.


(Makes you look like less of an @$$)


Edit: Hey! You know what, Don't sweat it...I'll retract and rephrase my "Western Market" statement.  "I think Blizz is turning its back on non-Asian markets." There how's that?

I can not speak for others, but I will speak for myself.  When I think of pandas I imagine them fat, soft and somewhat clumsy.  They are like teddy bears.  The movie kung fu panda makes them into a comical figure also.

 

Now many people do not want to be fat, soft, clumsy and comical.  Sure there are those that will revel in it.  But I think there is a good number of people that gravitate toward darker themes, and the light hearted nature of the panda is contradictory.  

 

Also, a lot of people now days are looking soft and fat.  Maybe they don't want to look that way in a game as well.

 

They could have made a cool looking cat or rat people as well, something sleeker with a bad ass component thrown in.  There would have been balance.  I think WOW flubbed on the pandas.  But...to each their own.

This is the all important question:


 


Does the female Pandaren look like a care bear?

I hope there is a full levelling path for pandarians in their world.  It would make little sense to have a 1-20 over on pandaria followed by the standard 20-90 and then back to pandaria for 90-100.  Even if it is shallow, having the ability to level all the way through is quite important.  (It is kind of like it was for the iksar which were very cut off from the mainland and if they had to go to commons to level it would have really taken away from kunark.) 

Worse would be if you just started at 80 as a pandarian...  I like to experience the building of a character (which is kind of why the free to 80 thing while a timesaver is really a poor thing in some key ways). 

At any rate, I will probably give WoW its third chance when panda hits.  I mean one of the main things that stopped me from coming back at any point since I last played(the 1st expansion) was that none of the WoW classes really does it for me.  I am hoping that the monk class is fun to play.

From what I read the Pandarens start at level 1, and have a levelling path from 1 to 10 in their zone then back to standard wow levelling for levels 11 through 85 then back to the Pandaren continent for 85 to 90

The only thing that I like about MoP is the "pokemon" feature.  I know I'm way too old to be playing pokemon, but there's just something that draws me to them.  I've owned almost every Pokemon title except like the really kiddy ones, like the picture taking one, tcg and stuff like that.  When it comes to raising the little guys, and battling, I'm just simply drawn towards it.  I probably won't come back just because it is Blizzard lol.  i don't trust someone who basically gives out my credit card number, then won't do anything about it.  Battle.net accounts...worst idea ever!

After all that work to revise 1-60 leveling, I doubt they would just throw that all away.

If WoW is the flagship MMO in the modern era then the MMO is dead to me.

I'm not knocking you at all Rekindle. I have just been wondering for months now why Pandas have been the childish cutoff for players. The average age for WoW players is 27...or atleast it was a couple years ago. Why when there are gnomes and goblins its fine, but Pandas are so childish? I don't care if it's a lump of crap, a daffodil, or a stick figure, if the gameplay is fun who cares.

For me there's two main reasons.

First is because of the Kung-fu panda movie. Every time I see or hear about Pandaren, I'm reminded of this movie. Not to say it was a bad movie... but it was a pretty immature movie in it's own right, considering it is meant for kids.

Second is because anthromorphized pandas are by far, not a standard fantasy race. Gnomes, goblins, etc, are. Even tauren are, (minotaur), as are Draenei (Demon variant).

You to have stop looking at things from western point of view. Pandas have been a big part of asian culture and have been making appearnces in movie, comics and games in atnhromorphized form. This expansions is heavily inspired from asia and that makes Panda very standard fanstasy race.

And i think you forgot all the cries and screaming when Draenai was introduced? and now it is a fantasy standard. yeah right.

Whatever for?  If the game is being released to a western audience, why in the world should we view it in any way other than with western eyes and western sensibilities?  I'm not even talking about pandaland specifically, but in general.  There's nothing to say that we can't enjoy other cultural flavours, but asking that we change our perspective to make the content palatable to us, is a failure of that content.  Again, not necessarily saying that pandas fail in this regard.

It's called knowing one's audience.  Successful games do.  Maybe Blizzard does too with this.

Maybe I should start complaining that Wrath of the Lich King was offensive to my Anglo-Saxon heritage because they depicted the northerners (Vykrul) as mindless, savage brutes.

The simple truth for many people!

Playable pandas are simply taking the whimsy too far for those with a more traditional D&D/Warhammer background for their fantasy.

It's not complicated.

Am I mistaken or is WOW actually going to do Swoop Racing before SWTOR does?


That would be... funny... not to mention possibly a bit embarassing for Bioware.
