Legal issues regarding availability
Warlord's Deathwheel: Horde Availability | 2016-09-30 18:12 | Lore (CM)
Q u o t e:
I'm still confused as to how the Horde "won", when the bike is no longer available, whereas the Alliance one is. What's the problem with making the Horde one avaliable again for 100k?
There are a few unfortunate legal obligations that have halted a release of the Horde's Deathwheel, from what I understand. Something about <insert legal jargon about prizing>.
Again, an unfortunate circumstance, but I'm not sure that anything can be done.I'll bring this up again next week and see if anything has changed since I last asked about this a few months back.
The Mount Journal entry refers to Azeroth Choppers Episode 7, where Samwise Didier comments that when the Horde bike's engine would not turn over on the first try that "I'm expecting th-th-the roar of kodo beasts... it sorta sounded like a... goblin lawn mower."
During beta testing, the mount was in fact known as the Goblin Lawn Mower and the mount journal text was a little different: "Built by the rowdy engineers of the Horde, this growling behemoth treats enemies like they are made of grass... and you're here to mow it."
For a time it was also known as Hellscream's Hog with the following journal text "Built by the rowdy engineers of the Horde, this badass bike is bathed in the blood of bludgeoned enemies, making it just the right shade of red."
