01/26/2012 02:18 PMMy favorite thing about this thread is how Zarhym never addressed the core issue presented and instead made strawman after strawman and mocked the opposition. Pretending the OP didn't have coherent point. I lurv ya Zarhym, but it pains me to see you resorting to Bill O'Reilley tactics.

You're not allowed to go back in time and insert a core issue into the thread, then claim I failed to address it.
The OP says it's a cheesy name and likened it unto the decision to have Fonzie jump a shark in his leather jacket on water skies in Happy Days. If there's some deeper, truer criticism he was eluding to... you're right. I missed it. (Or pretended to miss it?)
And people love shouting "strawman!" so much on the forums that I'll pretend that wasn't a coherent criticism of my responses. :D

I could try to reference real world nationalities and their relation to the names of the respective nations from which they're derived. My guess is that wouldn't be the best use of my time or yours. Instead I'll just remind you that's been the name of the continent for a long time now.
Once a bunch of new updates about the expansion come flying out from our offices, we trust players may not just have pandas on the brain anymore when thinking about 5.0. Yes, it's true, the next expansion's name, new playable race, and new continent are all derivatives of the word "panda." We're confident that's not going to encapsulate the entire gameplay and story experience though.
