And that does not include the fact that your maintenance is outrageous compared to electric.

What? I agree with most of what you said, but this is crap. Diesels are extremely cheap to maintain and last an extremely long time. Getting 200-300k miles on a diesel engine with no maintenance is common. You'd replace a electrics batteries several times at a huge cost in that frame...

Yeah, They'll start dribbling out in 5-8 years. The first serious roll-out will start around 10 years with 1/3 jobs replaced coming 20-30 years out. Its just a matter of sheer amount of robots that need to be built.

Anyone who doesn't think its going to happen is seriously deluding themselves. Pretty the only that can stop it is a global meltdown of modern civilization or earth destroying event (man made or otherwise).

yup, most of that crap started because of PVP... It is extremely difficult to make things different but equal.

vanilla was good

BC was awesome (probably the pinnacle) ( I remember spending a month and half learning how to properly gear and play my druid for tanking)

WotLK was still decent but the downward spiral had started, ALL classes using same gear,stats,cooldown dependent rotations, etc really started to show.

What the heck was next? I can't remember but it just generic, all thinking ceased. gear no longer mattered there was no thought needed, just can you watch which skill on cooldown you should hit next...

pfft doesn't matter

When you don't know what to do, walk fast and look worried.
