I find it a bit weird how it's fine to murder an entire city and plague all inhabitants of Stratholme and then burn them all to the ground; but letting a ghost girl battle with an easterbunny is absolutely NOT DONE.

Politically correct, blizz succumbed a decade ago.  This is not the WoW we used to play. :/

In which WoW you could kill children?

So far I can't think of any time they showed anywhere, ever, non-beastly children getting killed, nor zombie children, or any sort of undead children besides ghosts.

Prove me if I'm wrong, but the thing since ever and thus far has been, you can do "whatever you want" to whoever you want, but children (unless they creatures such as murlocs or gnolls).

I don't know what you're quoting me for; I never said you could. I don't think the other guy said either.

Well, the other guy said blizzard sucumbed to being politically correct and that's why we don't make children fight creatures. That would mean previously we could see that.

Your quote, well, accident.

Fair enough. The real reason Blizzard doesn't allow children to fight is because this would make it a 18+ game as by ESRP (US) and PEGI (EU) rating. So this is a very good and fair reason, because the younger people are allowed to play the game, the larger the playerbase, and thus money.

 

As for the other politically correct stuff... I'd rather not get into that on a forum that's about entertainment and fun.

 

 

Edit: I'm merely criticizing the ESRP and PEGI systems, not Blizzard themselves. ESRP and PEGI think it's fine to burn down towns and have people mass murder eachother for ages 13 and higher, but as soon as a child has to go into a fight it's an immediate 18+ (adult) rating. They're mean!

Looking at it from that angle... yes, PEGI ratings are mean xD

There are certain things that make it instantly a certain rating, regardless of what else is in the game. It's a really weird system. One tiny scene can turn a game into an 18, despite the rest of the game being below a 12.

      The Shadowlands pre-patch event has been pushed to the PTR and is now available for testing, so we're looking at what awaits us. This article contains spoilers.
      Note that the event is not available for testing in its entirety and it will be probably time-gated on live servers.
      You receive the intro quest from Valeera Sanguinar as a Horde player. She wants to meet up with you and Lor'themar in Orgrimmar. You learn that the undead Scourge is swarming in numbers not seen since the return of the Lich King. A NYI cinematic starts playing where Anduin and Jaina get abducted by Sylvanas. The Scourge's unbound hunger has been unleashed and it is only a matter of time before they're swarming the streets. The death knights of the Ebon Blade have stepped forward to aid you and the Argent Crusade has returned to answer the call. Lor'themar admits Sylvanas is a great tactician. Bolvar is free of the Lich King's crown and is recovering in Acherus. You are sent to the Barrens to investigate the Scourge presence in the area. The Cult of the Damned is back and you must kill some of their members including ghouls that spawn from portals in the Crossroads. The Argent Crusade has come to aid your effort in the area. You are sent back to Orgrimmar and are sent to Icecrown to see what's going on with the Scourge and you find out Nathanos Blightcaller has been spotted in Eastern Plaguelands, so you are ordered to slay him. You secure a foothold in Icecrown and unlock daily quests there. Random bosses spawn in the zone and reward item level 100 loot (squish is already live on the PTR).

      Castle Nathria raid testing continues on the Beta with Mythic difficulty on August 13th and 14th with Normal difficulty remaining open throughout the weekend.
      UPDATE: Blizzard added that all bosses except the Stone Legion Generals and Sire Denathrius will be available on Normal difficulty.
      (Source)
      On Thursday, August 13th and Friday, August 14th, we will be continuing our raid tests in Castle Nathria.
      Once mythic testing has concluded on the 14th we will be opening the entire raid on normal difficulty for the remainder of the weekend.
      Thursday, August 13th
      Sun King’s Salvation - Mythic Castle Nathria
      13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST)
      Sludgefist - Mythic Castle Nathria
      14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)
      Friday, August 14th
      Huntsman Altimor - Mythic Castle Nathria
      13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST)
      The Council of Blood - Mythic Castle Nathria
      14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)
      Normal Castle Nathria Opens
      16:00 PDT (19:00 EDT, 01:00 CEST)
      As a clarification, when we open normal mode all bosses except for the Stone Legion Generals and Sire Denathrius will be available.
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
      To facilitate testing, players who have not committed themselves to a Covenant can speak with Acquirer Ta’est inside Castle Nathria to temporarily bind themselves to one of the four factions.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Oribos, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade IV in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)
      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players’ effective level to 60 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.
      Q: How long does testing last?
      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we’re satisfied that we’ve received that information for a given boss, we’ll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.
      We appreciate you taking the time to test our content and look forward to reading your feedback.

      Finally, here is an overview of Mage changes that went live this week on the Shadowlands Beta. General changes include Rune of Power rework, Mirror Images damage reduction, and more.
      (Source)
      Hello Mages. In this week’s build, we’ve made many changes to Arcane as well as a few updates to the other specs to address recent concerns about talents and GCD usage.
      General Mage Changes
      Mirror Images  damage greatly reduced, Frostbolt added to all Mirror Images, and while your images are active, damage taken is reduced by 20%. Taking direct damage will cause one of your images to dissipate. Developers’ notes: The goal is to push Mirror Images away from a DPS cooldown and give it a defensive component. Now, only taking direct damage will cause an image to dissipate and there is an ICD of 2 seconds to ensure at least a 6 second uptime when taking damage. Rune of Power has been reworked to cast at your location when you use one of either Combustion, Arcane Power, or Icy Veins, depending on your spec. Developers’ notes: This change is aimed to help with the cast time and GCD utilization at the beginning of an encounter, while remaining viable in your opener as a high burst window. Arcane
      The following Arcane changes are focused on reducing ramp up time, as well as opening up more talent options based on the content you’re running.
      Arcane Power cooldown reduced to 2 minutes (was 3 minutes). Touch of the Magi now generates 4 Arcane Charges on cast. New Talent: Master of Time – Reduces the cooldown of Alter Time by 30 seconds. Alter Time resets the cooldown of Blink when you return to your original location. Alter Time has been moved to Level 24 for Arcane mages. Resonance damage per target hit with Arcane Barrage increased to 15% (was 10%). Charged Up removed. Developers’ notes: Touch of the Magi will now generate 4 charges baseline. This opens up the Level 35 tier for more viable options that focus heavily on dealing AoE damage. New Level 35 Talent: Arcane Echo – Direct damage you deal to enemies affected by Touch of the Magi, causes an explosion that deals [0.15xSP] Arcane damage to 8 nearby enemies. Time Anomaly now grants Time Warp for 6 seconds. Developers’ notes: A simple change, but this should make Time Anomaly feel more satisfying as a talent since gaining Time Warp is always a good thing, but gaining Arcane Charges isn’t something you’d always necessarily want. Fire
      Fire updates are centered around the change that saw Phoenix Flames baseline as the Ignite spread.
      Phoenix Flames damage increased and recharge time reduced, but no longer guarantees critical hits. Developers’ notes: Phoenix Flames still interacts with Hot Streak, so it can benefit within the Combustion window, but outside of that, it will primarily function as a way to spread your Ignite. Alexstrasza's Fury – Dragon's Breath now also gains a 50% increased critical strike damage bonus. New talent: From the Ashes – Increases Mastery by 2% for each charge of Phoenix Flames off cooldown, and your direct-damage critical strikes reduce its cooldown by 1 second.
