Ok, so I left you guys, all three of you, in the lurch and quit posting stuff. I was ok with this for the most part since I felt that my time would be better spent doing something that could actually net me some income. Well a few applications and a resume later I’m still unemployed but I feel better about myself. But all that is neither here nor there. On to the topic that has me literally squirming in my seat in dread and apprehension. Forcible pvp cuddles! Not to be confused with regular forcible cuddles; those are what I give my cat when he’s being a dork. Here is a picture of my cat being a dork:
Back to forcible pvp cuddles! I am currently on a pvp server despite my fear and loathing of pvp. Why? you might ask. Because that is where my guild is and because I can avoid the pvp if I want to. AND I VERY MUCH WANT TO. But like so many other examples in the world, the loud minority is getting their way. If I stay on a pvp server, I will be forced to pvp. Thank you very much Mr. Tom Chilton! That link right there discusses changes coming to pvp servers with the Mists of Pandaria expansion.
In the past I would have agreed with the intellectually challenged, knuckle-dragging mouth breathers who predictably respond with, “PvP happened on a PvP server,” and “QQ pvp server” and the other gems of their infinite wisdom. However, with Blizzards upcoming changes to how people will interact with the world around them, they really are creating a whole new monster. You guessed it. Its time for a bullet list!
Reasons Why PvP Servers Have Become a Whole New Thing: and thus we deserve free transfers off of them.
- Cross server zones will make it so that there is no more late night/early morning uninterrupted play time.
- Weaker and less frequently spawning guards will encourage killing quest givers, vendors, and other necessary npc’s.
- An item that shoots people off of flying mounts is bound to be abused in group especially near choke points and raid instances.
Keeping all of that in mind, its easy to see that leveling and living on a pvp server will not be what it is now and has been in the past, thus a whole new ball of wax. And truth be told I think that it is a good change for those who like that type of environment. I am just not one of them. It will be going from something that I can tolerate to something that could potentially keep me from playing.
So Activision Blizzard, open up your hearts and your deep pockets and let those of us who do not wish to be forcibly squished by the opposing faction transfer off pvp servers so we can practice our:
