Deathwing comes, destroys half the world, makes enormous changes to the game that we have played for all these years, and the biggest topic on everyone’s mind is… portals.
To all the complainers:
Its a mild inconvenience for the next couple of weeks, assuming that you are still actually doing anything in Northrend. If you, like so many of us, are spending your online time reading Trade chat in Dalaran, then this has had no effect on your life. After December 7th you’re going to spend all of your time in Azeroth and the new zones anyway, so the missing portals in Dalaran and Shattrath will be almost a non-issue. I understand your reaction, but try to look past the present and see the long term view.
To the people complaining about the complainers:
You sound like grandparents. Every time one of you writes “When I played we didn’t get our first mount until level 40!” you sound outdated. That’s no different that saying “I used to walk to school in the snow” or “In my day we used encyclopedias, not this internet-thing.” The game has changed, and the Wrath generation has had portals since they started. Of course they will be annoyed when something is removed. Try to think about it from their point of view.
