Blizzard deleted 100's of thousands of votes for the alliance bike;
why? simple - because horde is outnumbered by the alliance, and they want
people to reroll horde - more alts, more $$$ in their pockets --- it's all about marketing,
NOT what the player base wanted.

I'm tired of horde favoritism in every expansion, every contest, every patch.
It's all horde, horde, horde.

I just finished my last class to 90, but i'm not playing WOD, and i'm unsubscribing right now.

No, I don't care what you all post in replies, ,i won't be reading them.
I'm just letting blizzard know that after 8 years they're losing my business forever, adn will never
be getting it back.

I saw enough people--and it's been my task to develop and watch much of the social support surrounding Choppers--saying they play Alliance but would be voting for the Horde bike. It wasn't a negligible amount, either. Probably a good indicator that this wasn't just a "vote for your faction" situation for everyone, and enough people voted for the bike they just liked the looks of better to make a difference.

I think it would have been cool to have people pick which faction they play for, as well as which bike they like better, so we could see what that data breakdown is, but that just wasn't the purpose or scope of the project.

I have never, ever seen a more one-sided poll in my life.

This is obviously fabricated.


If it were fabricated it would have been much closer, as there could have been some drama built up over a close proximity of voting percentages. Having such a one-sided result left us with a less exciting way to present a result. So, no, it being so one-sided was decidedly less than ideal. :) But hey, that's the risk you run with a popular vote.

The goal was to have the community vote for which bike should be in-game, and that's what happened.

Sigh... disappointed that blues acknowledge idiot threads like this by posting in them...


Yeah, sorry, I should have just deleted it. Will lock.
