-No more honor pvp reward system.(New system drasticly different)

-No more 40 man raids.(will now be 25)

-New zones will be split into Wings designed for different levels.

-The objective zones will have a neutral town that is capturable in the center of the zone. There will be these towers(which are destroyable) which give access to gryphons that will go on a set path to the town for a carpet bombing AE run against the town's defenders.

Excellent. It sounds like they are finally listening to their player base. I look forward to it's release.

The neutral town raids sound fantastic. I really miss the old Tarren Mill vs. South Shore raids... good times.

Thank you for posting that link. I haven't visited gamespy for a while.

Which reminds me, I need to go read the new "Flintlocke" comics. heh

Not the answer I wanted to hear, but what the hey. For da 'orde!

/me breaks into dance.

It's peanut butter jelly time!

p.s. They took out the "kill two dwarves" /silly for the trolls. I am still a bit upset about that. That was one of the better sillies in the game. :shakeno:

Then whats the pvp reward.... if theres no reward for pvp thats just pointless. I hope they drop like gold now or something when you kill someone in some areas or something.

There is a reward. Read the article. The PvP grind is over for ranking. Now all your honor points amount to tokens which you can use to purchase the PvP equipment. In other words, you no longer have to PvP 24 hours a day 7 days a week to obtain rank 14 equipment.

Edit: Also there will still be an option for the hardcore PvP'ers with the new "Arena" system, where you can obtain even better gear, gear that is as good as the PvE raid instance gear. I would really suggest reading the whole article. There are a lot of changes in there.

I played WoW from open beta to about 6 months ago when I finally was just sick of the grind. These new changes have me thinking of re-opening my account. Server issues were another reason I quit. I am guessing they will get nasty on release of BC with a surge of new traffic from old accounts.

I had several characters but seem to miss my Tauren Druid the most.

It sure took then a while to do so, but you're right. It's about time someone listened to the players that pay to play their game. It's a shame that the lore had to be twisted in many ways to get it done, but I think it will make for a better game over the long haul. I will say that those lore changes have made for some great 'You're the Man Now Dog" entries. :lol: Lore, LOL! (http://lorelol.ytmnd.com/):tongue:

They should get some balls and make it full loot in PvP.

Atleast a few items anyway.

hell no.

i canceled ultima online back in the day because i couldnt stand that crap anymore.

it takes all the fun out of PVP.

its not about having the balls to do it, its about people who devote 100 hours of gameplay to get a sword and then you get ganked and lose it in 5 secs.

screw that mess. im not on WoW now because i dont have time for it anymore. i played for about 2 months as much as i could about a year ago and then left it just because i didnt have time anymore. if i go back for a spell to check out the new content i dont want to bust my butt to get good items just to go into BG and lose it all or most of it because my team was 7 against 10.
