What part of peoples dislike for blizzard making exclusive items for the real money shop in a game that they pay a monthly sub for? Especially when they then release 14 models of the same boar (wod) or give an different coloured horses to the alliance.
Yes we can ignore it and not buy it but that doesnt make it any less of total BS from blizzards part.
yeah jumping on a pretty mount is an in game ability too, I dont get what’s the point you’re making.
except that one part where in game shop was selling transmogs for real life money
yeah, but you wont have all of them, without throwing extra money at activison.
except “oh look at the pretty extras” can be done without someone milking you off of your money, but hey! whatever floats your boat boo.
I mean when I see new FREE mounts, like new darkshore kitties my reaction was exactly “oh hey look a pretty new mounts” but yeah, Im not a fan of stuff of paying money on top of the money and on top of the money… being milked isnt my sort of kink idk. maybe im just odd.
game has had a lot of issues since 2003 and its still going.
what’s the point here? we ignore issues because game’s still going? lol
its not about if you can/cant buy it.
I can buy ALL of it right now, all mounts, all pets, I could buy that “special cool deal with 66% sale” and I can probably buy next 20 mounts while being subbed till this game dies, all with in game gold.
its about, activision trying to actively milk people.
I’m not sure. WoW has been the premium-priced MMMORPG since day 1. There’s nothing that’s changed here, arguably WoW was even more expensive in the old days (because if you account for inflation, then the cost of your subscription was higher in the past).
The game has always been hideously expensive. At least the store is optional. If you’re going to be outraged about something, be outraged about the mandatory payments, not the optional ones.
That’s actually my main issue with the cash shop and other services/extras. I’d happily throw money at Blizzard Entertainment, but I think we all know that that’s not where our money will end up going to.
Give the developers their yearly bonuses back.
I’ll start spending more of my money when they do that.
Welcome to capitalism in the 21st century. Are you new around here or what? Show me any company that isn’t trying to maximize profits and generate as much cash-flow as possible. Like, c’mon! You’re the customer here. It’s your choice whether or not you want to spend money on Blizzard’s products. If they offend you so damn much, then the obvious solution is to not spend money on Blizzard’s crap. Lord knows there are plenty of other companies out there who would like your money just as much as Blizzard wants it.
That there are hundreds of pretty in game mounts to choose from that don’t come from the store. That your comparison does not work because paying gold to transmog your gear in game does not in any way shape or form relate to the in game store.
Or spending gold. That stuff you have a huge amount of judging by your farewell thread.
thats why we use the cheapest stuff possible and do everything as quick as possible and half assed at work when we mod the customers cars. Do bare minimum and get that stuff done without any quality. Gotta maximize dAt PrOfiT.
