This is something I can try to work in. Not directed at you, but in general, a lot of folks who are heavily involved in Pet Battles will likely have many of the pets that are featured. Though I can't entice every single reader of the Major Payne blog with a pet they haven't yet tamed, I can at least try to make it entertaining. =)

I like where you're headed with this post. One of the ideas I have in mind would likely push players to make a greater effort to experiment and test different families. Sure, pure mechanicals are strong against most beasts, but what about an aquatic or undead? For instance, what if the blog challenged players to see if they can defeat Major Payne's team with all flying pets? Would that be fun and interesting while promoting a greater understanding of pet abilities as a member of a team? This is also directed at everyone who posted about pairings and teams, by the way.

Pet Battles in Warlords of Draenor is still being developed so hang in there. =) And for the record, I stay in contact with the designers every week sharing ideas and feedback so keep it coming!
I've always wondered why there is never any hint on where the pets can be obtained.
Most, if not all the blogs, have some kind of reference as to where you can get the featured pet. Can you give me an example where that's missing?
Sorry to dump on you. I very much enjoy pet battling, and I would like to see these issues resolved.
First, I've contacted our designers and QA team to take a look at the lists of concerns you and others have posted. We do appreciate the heads-up on potential bugs, so thank you for posting. Second, not to take away from your concerns, but this thread was posted in order to gather feedback about the Major Payne blog. Please do try to keep it on topic.
