Do you think World of Warcraft could work on an iPad

I've barely played WoW, but I'm just wondering if anybody thinks a iPad version would be a viable way to play.  Imagine how much more time people could sink into WoW if they could bring it with them on a bus, or subway.  Also, I wonder if blizzard could make a tie in game for iPhone and iPods that maybe earns you gold or something to bring into the full game.

JUST TAP THE ENEMY TO KILL HIM.  IT'S SO EASY A CHILD COULD DO IT.
 
Ugh.

Maybe for like super casual players but no way in hell you could raid with one.

Yes but you need to run it through a streaming service like OnLive or a remote desktop.

I suppose it's possible, but I wouldn't ever play it. To be fair, I don't play WoW anyway.

Yes, but it probably wouldn't want to fun. Like the Wii and Ds, the best games on the platform are the ones developed for it because of the unique control scheme.

Not for any level of serious play.

Probably, but I'd rather they put a GOOD MMO on the iPad. I'd totally buy one, then.

@EvilTwin: I mean, you pretty much just click to kill the enemy on PC

It would work, but you couldn't play it to save yourself.

I guess the same thing could be said of any game really. "Just push A to kill." 
 
I'm just raging against the idea of games getting touch controls shoehorned into them because of the popularity of iPhones and iPads.
