So far the only two things I don't like about the next expansion are pandas as a playable race and the name. The name is just a name, so no big deal and the pandas are just another race, no big deal.
I don't like them but neither one of them is enough to make a big deal about. So they decided on a stupid name and a cutie race.
While I can't really see playing a panda I most likely will, just to have one. I have one of everything else so why not?
I am starting to really like pandas however even if I do not want to play them. Each time I see someone complain about them it just makes me like them more and more.
If you are going to complain then complain about something that matters. Take it from someone that is a master complainer. I complain about things I don't like, I complain about things I do like, I complain about things no matter what. But there is always a reason behind it.
There is no reason to complain about a race. Don't like it? Don't play one.
The trade chat on my server is like the panda hate society. Each panda remark is more rude then the next. People saying blizzard has gone full on retard and are catering to 6 year olds. Each one of these comments make me like pandas more and more.
Step up your game people. Complain about balance. Complain about difficulty. Complain about content. Complain about quests. Complain about horde favoritism. Complain about alliance favoritism. Complain about something that impacts the game in some way.
There are people out there that hate gnomes, or trolls, or what have you, but you do not hear them saying that they are going to quit because they are in the game. You know how those people protest the races they dislike? They don't play them.
While the fact remains that I am in no way a fan of the pandas and I might see it as a step in a direction of making the game aimed at a different type of player than myself, I can just not play one if I do not want to. There is so much in the game to love and hate. To focus all your hate on a race because they are cute seems a bit sad if you ask me.
Are they secretly afraid that having a cute race around might cause their epeen to shrink?
From looking at trade it would seem the only thing people hate so far about MoP in any large numbers are pandas. If that is the only thing there is to hate in an expansion then I think we are in great shape.
If the people in trade keep this up, I might just become a panda lover by the time the game comes out.
