Just over ten years ago, Burning Crusade ushered in a brand new way to experience World of Warcraft that for better or worse would change the game irrevocably: flying.
Remember the flying controversy around Warlords of Draenor?
You may have missed it while at work today, but this afternoon Blizzard held an hour long Legion Q&A with World of Warcraft Assistant Game Director Ion Hazzikostas (Watcher).
It's been a while since patch 6.2.2 launched and I'm still on the ground.
The day has finally arrived: we can fly in Draenor.
Yes, today's the day.
Let's get the bad out of the way.
I really miss the Netherwing.
The patch notes for World of Warcraft patch 6.2.2 have been updated with plenty of new information -- previously, all we had was a brief summary of the upcoming PVP Mercenary Mode, and flight on Draenor.
This week's earnings call revealed that WoW had dropped to slightly above five million subscribers, a rather precipitous decline from its 10 million subs at the start of Warlords of Draenor. No matter what you say about how that doesn't really mean much (and it doesn't, honestly), it's still a startling drop.
