I'm amazed they let it go this long... seriously, PR folks spend a lot of time managing hype so as to not get a widespread 'meh' when you inevitably fail to impress. I suspect whatever it is will elicit a 'oh neat' at best. :P



Or even better instead of an 'oh neat'...


'about time'


lol.

The only thing that would literally blow my mind to infinity with delight would be cross-faction/cross-realm RealID grouping.

Highly doubt that's in the cards though.

heh if we took it further the 2-faction system being gone would certainly blow my mind(personally I feel this 'simple' thing prevents a lot of interesting development lore and gameplay-wise). That'll probably happen shortly after we get a PVE endgame that doesn't solely revolve around raiding though, and definitely after GC gives us a moose :P

What would blow my mind is being able to transfer an account across regions. I've moved me, my wife, three kids, a container of furniture, numerous household accoutrements, a bit of money and a whole lot of books across the Atlantic, but apparently it is impossible to migrate a tiny bit of electronic data from a Blizzard server in Europe to one in the USofA.

I still want an iOS app for stuff like fishing, perhaps crafting, and other basic functions.

Would love to be able to buy ore off the AH, prospect it, craft/shard, and then list stuff back on the AH, all from a mobile app. All the stuff my crafting alts do.

Given that they are now having a sale on character services, I would not be surprised if it was a grab at some money for realm transfers before they implement cross-server mailing of BoA gear.

Then there's this idea: Horde and alliance fight cooperatively to overthrow Garrosh, King Wrynn dies in the battle, and Thrall returns to unite the factions into one: The People of Azeroth. Now you can join with your previously Horde or Alliance buddies for instances and raids.

This kind of change would easily keep me playing this game.

As it is, I have 1 good buddy I play horde side with, while much of my old guild has since rerolled alliance on some other server. If I could xrealm/xfaction party with them, holy shit the possibilities...

oh man, the rage that scenario would generate in the community would probably make the servers hosting the official forums burst into flames.

Would it? Does anyone care about the horde/alliance conflict anymore?

Look at all the retards complaining about the titles for the Barrens stuff. There's your answer to that question.

GC dampening down the speculation about the unannounced feature suggests to me that it is not scaling old raids but something smaller and more "quality of life". Being able to play all old raids at an appropriate level of challenge at the end game would be a massive innovation, so wouldn't require lowering expectations. I do think they could and should do it, at some stage (currently, it just seems such a waste of awesome content), but it sounds like it won't be just now.

Doubt it with what GC's been saying lately. He's implied that if they don't tell us what the feature is we won't actually be able to guess which one it is.
