I'm also continually amazed that, despite 13 years of evidence to the contrary, people are still insisting that Void Elves are other subraces are "only at the beginning of their story" and other rot, instead of on the verge of being forgotten for four to eight years.

That's okay for some of the allied races, like HM and NB, that got entire zones and dedicated to their story. It's a bit more rough for the VEs who don't really have much of a story.

I'm not saying it's a good thing, I'm saying that's Blizzard's established pattern. And people are being hopelessly naive about it.

Anyway, this thread is going to be gold, if ya'll want in:

It's going to be an argument about an argument with the same people making the same hysterical declarations that caused the argument in the first place. I'm on my way out the door, but I trust in ya'll to keep it alive.
As sufficient a sample size as the story forum is, I'm curious:

Fair warning, Strawpoll is easy as hell to fake.

I figure no one here cares enough to fudge the numbers.

*hugs* We all have !@#$ happen man. It sucks what happens but things will improve. So long as you are honest it usually ends with you winding up on top in the end with abusive people like this.

Thanks. It's just been a really bad day. I think I'm probably just gonna try to pass out. Hopefully I can deal with this whole thing well enough tomorrow.
Hope things start looking up for you, Nincaro! If nothing else, I can reassure you that after high school you may enjoy a "hard reset" in your life, should you wish. It served me well!

How in the hell did THAT get a blue post?


I'm pretty firmly on team "that OP" and don't care for the mocking and cynicism they're receiving, but even that aside it's not a surprising blue post. No huge game design commitment, and a compassionate outreach to boot. Pretty safe thread to make a statement in, honestly. I'm glad they chose to, personally :)
The forums are never going to stop burning at the rate the beta is going.

I think I should invest in some marshmallows and make some s'mores.

Always good to make the best of any situation! Plus, we can make Teldrassil jokes when the marshmallows catch fire :)
On one hand, the endless burning forums isn't good.

But on the other hand, it warms my pryomanic heart to watch the burning flames. I also want to start humming songs that fit under my breath.

You disgust me with your sweetness and kindness. Why can't you just be a heartless, bitter, jaded emotional cripple like the rest of us?

If you were a druid, I wouldn't even ride you without your consent.

It's a weird thing to complain about because it only comes up when you're in a group with strangers and in an outdoor area that doesn't allow normal mounts. That's a pretty narrow circumstance. It could come up more often if you use travel form for RP reasons, but in that situation, RPing players should be asking for permission anyway. Additionally, the problem can be solved by asking the other player to knock it off. It's a very narrow problem that is unlikely to receive a Dev side solution because of how minor it is versus the programming effort required to change it. Frankly, the easiest way to fix it would be to simply removed that functionality from travel form entirely which is likely to anger more people than it pleases.
I took the week of Aug 14 off for BFA launch, like I have for every other WOW launch. Sometimes it's suffering and asking myself "why did I take this time off if the servers are just going to be down for a week?" Other times (like the MoP launch) it's smooth and perfect and it's fun to be way ahead of the curve and help friends.
Gotta love people in GD who only do LFR sharing their opinions about a loot system that doesn't affect them at all.

Maybe not for all races, but elves are popular, and Zandalari trolls have been talked about for years.
