My issue is that there are a lot of people calling for the event to just be removed totally, and I would hate that. I missed the WOTLK invasion because I wasn’t playing at the time so I’m super excited for this one.
Devs have said time and time again feedback is appreciated, but only when constructive–saying “I hate this please remove it” isn’t helpful. To the people who have been making reasonable suggestions, thank you. I myself like the idea of safety bubbles around the quest givers and healers, zombies not being allowed in starting areas, and scaling the npc zombies (which I believe has already started on PTR?). Can’t say I’m totally sold on the player zombies being scaled because I feel like that would defeat the purpose. One solution to mitigate this would be like something similar to the Legion Dalaran sewers, where it’s free for all pvp but you can pay a small amount for a guard to protect you. Perhaps something like that can be implemented for low level players and people not wanting to participate?
I was the one who brought up Jeremy Feasel’s tweet about the event being cycling rather than constant, and I urge people to check out his feed. I’ve seen a lot of people ask for the event to be like the legion invasions, and I think that might be the goal. He did say a “revamped” version of the invasion from WOTLK prepatch, so I don’t expect it to exactly the same.
