    lol! This has got to be a joke re: WoW's Mists of Pandaria. Apparently, I'm not the only one who got a chuckle over WoW's new cute, fluffy panda samurai.

    The Casino is real at least on Chesy. The panda that just can't be it has to be a WoW jab.

    Humans and elves can ride mounts. Gargoyles can fly instead of riding mounts.

    Make the panda race ridable!

    HEY DEVS: Nerf Pandas. That's all you can see in Fel now is Pandas because they can stand there in WWF mode and anybody attacking them gets Greenpeace whacked.

    I must admit when I first saw this post I also thought it was going to be about faction changes, however I understood the intent. What the Devs need to realize though is its like telling jokes at a funeral (factions RIP), it rarely if ever comes across as funny.

    i think they should put in some poker tables, you could bet your gold against other players, that'd be awesome! (also up the limit at the arena so bets can be handled in game)

    The funny part is that even if it were true it would be a lie...it's IMPOSSIBLE for "all shards" to get a casino in trammel...not all shards have a trammel!

    Even their jokes are released too soon and without being tested properly for all shards :/

    Who doesn't have trammel?

    And if your answer is Siege, I point you towards the Devs:

    "Siege? Never heard of it!"

    Sad, but might not be too far from reality. :eyes:

    If you tame one, will you set it loose in the factions threads?
