Will we one day see the walls break up entirely, and server losing any real meaning except 'home realm'. So if I just decide to join a guild from Ravenholdt, it transports me to play on Ravenholdt or something.

I would love if things got more flexible like this. I hate the server boundaries, really :/

Oh no, it is Japanese as well. There are elements of Noh Theatre.

There's masks. Lots of theatre cultures use masks.

They don't even particularily use Noh masks.

Not that I particularily mind. I've played an Indian-russian-american Christian-Buddhist Draenei Jew before, so all is fair game to me. Lots of people play Arab or African humans.

Hell, I delibrately invoke ninja tropes on Paozi on a regular basis. I dun' give a shit, lulz.

Just don't let the Chinese hear us lump their culture together with the Japanese, because they'll skin us alive for it.

Tbh, Pandaria and the Pandaren are more like the stereotype Westerner's have of Asian culture than any actual Asian culture. Funnily, the mogu resemble the Chinese better than the Pandaren.

I like that the deviousness of the Dutch, had to be pointed out with an alliteration.

That makes me proud to be so dirty.

I must say that the interview with the LoL guy posted on MMO-champion is a highly amusing read, particularily because of the fact that the guy asking question is particularily dense. It's always beautiful to see a Community Manager type try to argue with an angry idiot. It's an artform.
