WoW Plague Plagues WoW

The zombie invasion that recently began in World of Warcraft to pave the way for the launch of the Wrath of the Lich King expansion for Blizzard's MMORPG is not popular with all players, reports Ripten (thanks Mike Martinez). The plague of Zombies seems particularly unpopular with PvE players, who feel they are having PvP game elements force upon them, and many players finding the game unplayable due to the large number of NPCs turning up dead, or undead, or something. They point the way to a post on the World of Warcraft Forums from Blizzard on the situation:

We do appreciate the feedback; if threads are being deleted, it's because the moderators are trying to keep things consolidated and constructive, not because they seek to stifle dissenters.

As I have stated, if this was planned to last any longer than it is, we would have been a great deal more leery of the wide-reaching effects of the plague. This has been anticipated; I respect the concept that some people dislike it and we'll certainly take that into account, but this was an event meant to impact players in all walks of life and routines. I am in no way stating it was perfect, and should we do something like this again the feedback both for and against will be taken into account when changes are made, particularly pertaining to lower level players. This event absolutely was meant to shake up the status quo of the average WoW day, and in that it's been successful.

It will still continue as planned, but for those of you less than fond of the plague, you don't have much longer to wait.
