This is not so much one of my normal posts but more so a comment and complaint on this one line I saw in a post about the new Ashran PvP area that will be in warlords. I would love to comment more on Ashran as a whole but being I am not in beta and I can not say anything from experience and only have what I can see and read to go by I really can not pass judgement. So instead I will just make this post about that one little line.
I hang on that line in the title because everything else, in the forum of words at least, sounds fine even if not perfect. That line however, that changes everything for me. I always liked the PvP areas. I like Tol Barad, I liked Wintergrasp, I missed not having spot like that in mists. So even as someone that very rarely PvPs I was actually looking forward to at least trying Ashran.
For as much as I don't like PvP sometimes I can say that I really do love a good world PvP skirmish, it is just that they happen so rarely and I think that is why I always loved them. With all the things they are announcing for Ashran it made it seem as if they were creating a place where they were encouraging world PvP and I can really get behind an idea like that and support it. Until I read that line.
"You can loot other players currency"
Sorry blizzard, just lost me there. I was looking forward to Ashran, was even thinking it might make as a great way to pass some time and get into PvP for the non PvPers of the game because it would be a place we can walk into or out of as we see fit and go into with any size group unlike non rated battle grounds which limit you to a group of five.
It was a great idea but the second you tell me that someone can steal my currency you lost me. I will never step foot on Ashran soil and I even more so now than before completely oppose the new capitals being anywhere near this horrible idea of a world PvP area. I want to be as far away from it as possible. So far away from it that I can not accidentally walk into it because you might think that me entering it means I support it, and I do not. Move the capitals back to where they were originally intended to be, get us the hell out of that place.
Now I do not know what currency this is talking about. It could be some sort of Ashran only currency, it could be honor currency, it could be your very own gold currency. I really do not know. I really do not care. If I earned something through whatever means be it some sort of Ashran currency, honor points, or gold, it is mine and I am not going to participate in a zone where it can be stolen from me.
Simply said blizzard, when it comes to others being able to steal anything from me, my response will be fuck no.
Now don't you dare even think about adding this sort of complete bullshit to garrisons and let other people attack mine, disrupt my productions, or steal from me there too. If you do that, and being garrisons are the only new content next expansion, you lost a customer. That is not a threat, it is a promise.
The next expansion if chuck full of bad ideas, horrible ideas and then worse ideas, this is really one of the worse ideas. Do not add this crap to the game. Give them something for killing us, but do not let them steal from us. Big difference blizzard and you have been doing this long enough you should know better than to even consider adding this sort of stuff.
So to end this post I need to repeat this again, and you rarely if ever see me use the word, so it should show how I feel about it.
