I was perusing the Jumping thread when someone mentioned Zones.
Am I the only one that doesn't like this idea? I don't know how it's done in FFXI, but I would hate the way they handled areas in FFX and XII to be implemented in an MMO. This is one of the things I think Blizzard got right. Instead of walking to an invisible border, the screen suddenly going dark, then your character is magically in a new area, I would much prefer the more freeform method Blizzard has implemented in Azeroth's overworld, with seamless (read as: loading screen-less) transition.
Has Squeeix released/hinted/leaked anything that might lead us to believe they are leaning towards one method or the other? I really don't know.
Oh boy, I can see the flames already.
