World of Warcraft Q&A

The results of another Twitter-based developerĀ Q&A is up on the official World of Warcraft forums, which means that there's a whole batch of new answers available for our scrutiny. A couple of interesting nuggets:
Q. What have you learned from the inclusion of Wintergrasp in Wrath of the Lich King?

A. We learned a lot from Wintergrasp. I think our biggest takeaway is that we do not want to create such a technical strain on the servers like that ever again. We are pretty happy with the way that the gameplay worked out overall and are looking to grow and improve upon it with Tol Barad in Cataclysm. Tol Barad is going to have similarities to Wintergrasp, but the gameplay will be very different. We are still working out the details, but one thing I can say is that we want to reduce the overall amount of vehicle combat and get players back into the action using their own actions bars in pvp combat.


Q. Will there be any type of water mount, like, submarines?

A. We actually have two brand new subs that we made for Cataclysm. These submarines will be used as transports. We have one for gnomes and one for goblins. The subs are huge too! Both are about the size of the Gunships from Icecrown. ;)
