WvW needed help. A mount wasn't the help it needed. If the mount is even remotely implemented incorrectly it can drastically effect all forms of WvW gameplay. How much damage does the #2 skill do to gates? Do we even need Rams anymore? Does it work in combat? How much damage does the #1 skill do to players? Does it effect multiple enemies? Can I get on my new mount while in combat? Because that #3 sounds like it could be exploited if not implemented correctly.
What WvW Players actually want(ed):
1. Alliances to finally come out. Its been a year. You told us "a few months"
2. A new map, whether that be giving Green BL a new marshland reskin (like in EBG,) or something to give us a fresh scenery to look at. That'd be fantastic
3. A new WvW Event added to a monthly rotation. Weather that be a no-downstate event since we've done it in the past, or a completely new one. We generally don't care. Just give us something so our friends that used to love wvw might come back to hangout with us again.
If it ain't broke don't fix it. WvW Ain't broke by making people walk around everywhere. The maps aren't big enough to justify a mount. Speaking of, how fast does the mount move? Jackal speed? Raptor speed? How much HP does it have? Will players be CC'd when the mount dies like it does in PvE? Will this be a flop like portable cannons?
We needed more information about the mount during the announcement, and we didn't get enough details to not be somewhat angry or hurt about the decision.
