OP  10/20/12 9:53:43 AM#1

This week's Review in Progress for Mists of Pandaria covers the new Pet Battle System... and why it just might be the best part of Blizzard's latest WoW expansion.

The Pet System overall is a testament to WoW’s new direction: give player’s new stuff. I think it is a great system in Mists and adds a lot to the game even if it’s not for everyone. I say this because I was very much one of the doubters. I thought it would be silly and more annoying than anything else. Well, Blizzard proved me wrong. The idea that I can name my Mechanical Chicken was just funny, and I still have a soft spot in my heart for the Mechanical Yetis, two hysterical aspects of the game which WoW has now given a clear purpose outside of bragging rights. 

Read the rest of Garret Fuller's Mists of Pandaria: Review in Progress - Part Three.

This is one of the major reasons why I am tempted to buy MOP. Also I heard that there will be brawling in the new patch. Also I heard they have added transmogrification which lets you alter your appearance AND they gave my druid one of the most unique creative and innovative spells EVER - symbiosis! 

Also I love playing new classes so I love it that there is a new one. Writing all this makes me want to go and buy MOP now lawl.

Mission in life: Vanquish all MMORPG.com trolls - especially TESO, WOW and GW2 trolls.

Except...the pet battles are just a mini game and quite pointless to the overall game.   If they were incorporated into the game and had any meaningful rewards I would be all over it.  It doesn't, therefore I'm not and quickly got bored after getting a pet to level 5.

The pet system is account wide, not per player, you have no reason not to try it.

No matter how many times I read this I'm still trying to figure out why put this in the game. What does it add? It seems pointless and silly. To each their own I guess.

One thing any good MMO will have is non cobat, non progression things to do.  Like in EQ2 you have housing and collections.  Rift you have artifacts.  WoW (and most games) you have mount and pet collecting.

 

For years people have been asking blizzard for something to do with all the pets theyve gathered.  Blizzard answered.  There is no question the game is better because its in there, even if half the players feel like you do.  MMOs need more of this sort of thing.

It's an indication of how little the current blizzard team understand about mmorgs. You could for example add street fighter style combat into wow or 5 a side football into call of duty, etcetera.

Ridiculous comparison above there.

 

They added it in because many people have hundreds of pets and there was nothing to do with them, now they added even more and allow you to fight against eachother.

 

I don't really see the problem with games having more fluff, people whine that all there is to do in WoW is raid and run dungeons, when they add other stuff in people still moan, they can't win with some people.

From what I read the point of this is combat. And it seems strange to take companions and make a combat game out of them. Why not add housing and let them run free around the house and or yard.  That would make more sense to me then this.

I really enjoyed this game once . I don't even feel like going back for nostalgias sake anymore as I have done in the past . Theres so much they could have done with this game .ie player housing , guild halls . There so many fantasy creatures they could have used Centaurs and Ogres would have been good . Hell even leprechauns . They've given us pet battles and pandas .

I remember all those jokes about go play hello kitty island in WoW vanilla ,somehow I dount the people making them would have done so had they known what WoW itself would look like in 7 years .

Still Hello Kittys mega popular and so is WoW .........nuff said .

 i remember in gw2 beta when the arena in LA was first shown,  everyone was in awe of the possibility of mini-pet battles. 

I think the prostitute mod corrupted your game files man. -elhefen

I have zero interest in it.  If I resubbed to WOW I guess I could see it as a nice little option though when I'm bored.

Because doing this is a lot easier than adding housing to the game. They are trying to get people back in to the world interacting not sitting in there instanced house. (it would be instanced because there is nowhere to realistically put housing in azeroth)

Also games like Pokemon where you collect pets and fight them seem to be very popular so why not integrate something like that?

Pandas are ridiculous but leprechauns are not?

Give me a break.

Who did wrong? The advertiser hired to sell the game or the consumer who put faith in advertising?

There were plenty of EQ players making fun of WoW vanilla players for going to a kid's game - I still don't see how Panda's are worse than Cow people dancing to 'peanut butter jelly' or goat men from outerspace; 

This game has always been a cartoonish tongue-and-cheek game. I have always thought it was like a Pixar movie which worked on two levels, for kids and adults.

And I find irony in someone who moonwalked with their night elf to call my Panda childish.

Someone in game asked me yesterday, 'A Pandaren? Are you serious?'

My answer, "No, I'm not"

I think adding a whole new 'balanced' combat system might pose a few difficulties; I'm not an expert, but I doubt that was 'easier' than housing would have been.

 if they had literaaly copy'd and pasted pokimon i would play their game cuz god knows nintentards will never leave their cave -_-   how many year did they take to change mario and their idea of changing mario was to add more coins imagine how long it will take for them to discover the internetz 

 

 if i had one wish it would be to get my hands on  pokimon source code from black / white hell i would be happy with even blue/red i would be a filthy rich by the end of next year
