The upcomming patch to WoW sends a "strong message" to guild wars 2: We've got this greta new idea, now no one tags mobs anymore, instead people who attack it or help in a fight all share in the xp and loot (caveat: if on same faction as the noob who hit it first). Iz 2 b revolution in MMOs. Groundbreaking.
GW2: gee, that sounds familiar... ;-)
Some WoW players are up in arms thinking it will lead to exploits and griefing, like mob train and dump exploits... but not all of them.
Should be interesting to see if this can help the toxic community they have there...
But also interesting to a first case of the big competition copying from GW2. A clear sign this game did something right and its jolted management over there.
