It blows my mind just a little bit when it runs out people really dislike speculating about games, but I also sort of get it. For some people, speculation is an act of prediction, and if you’re consistently wrong it’s disheartening. It’s a bit of a different ball game when you look at speculation more as a guessing game when you know you’re as likely to be wrong as right, rather than just trying to forecast the things you want to see in the game.
Obviously, though, I love speculating. I enjoy looking at evidence and making a reasonable prediction, then refining it over time; heck, sometimes you wind up with speculation being precisely what winds up happening after all. (Like when I speculated that making allied race Death Knights would be a pre-order bonus in World of Warcraft ahead of the next expansion.) If you’re wrong? Well, no big issue; that happens.
But what about you, dear readers? Do you like speculating about your preferred MMOs, or would you rather just see what happens when it happens?
