For what it’s worth, I originally had a video of Lil’ K.T. zapping Big K.T.’s cat into a block of ice then cackling about it. But guess what scrub left that on his home computer and forgot to edit it and put it on Youtube to make it into a post today? Yep, that’d be me.
So instead, I’ll just quote Palehoof from a post on the forums (via MMO-Champion’s Bluetracker):
In that time, while WoW was being ruined by all of the above, WoW has quintupled its subscriber base. So don’ t be disappointed if Blizzard doesn’t leap to change whatever you say is killing the game.
That pretty much sums up most of my thoughts on the “ZOMG UR RUININ THE GAEM” mindset. My only other reactions to the whole minipets-for-money fiasco can be summed up as follows.
This is basically the same as paying money for a loot card, only it cuts out the middleman, so it’s kind of got a weird feeling to it - but deep down, I know it’s really not that different. It’s just who I’m buying it from.
I sincerely believe Blizzard knows the line between selling vanity items like minipets and mounts, and selling actual content like impactful loot.
I love Lil’ K.T. to death, and his ability to frostbolt critters to death is fantastic. The Pandaren monk, however, never fails to make me jump like a shot when he starts abruptly making his kung-fu noises in an otherwise-quiet zone.
Keep the comments civil, because I know a lot of people have very strong opinions on this, or I’ll shut them right the heck off.
