OP  2/17/10 3:10:37 PM#1

Blizzard announced the sale of two new in-game pets through the Blizzard store back in November of last year, with one pet, the Pandaren Monk, to have 50% of its proceeds (from sales up until the end of 2009) donated to the Make-A-Wish foundation.

Today, Blizzard announced via twitter that Pandaren Monk sales have amounted to a $1.1 million donation to the Make-A-Wish foundation!

[Thanks Christopher8 for the tip!]

It was obviously a maneuver to generate more income, or else 100% of both pets were to be donated, not 50% of one of the pets.

Nonetheless is commendable and surelly a great help to the foundation. They didnt have to donate any money and the pets would sell like hot cakes either way, so, kudos to Blizzard, I wish more companies would also help this kind of causes

100% of both pets might have been $4.4 million...just sayin.

They're just trying to recover from the war of attrition that they are losing as they slowly bleed out subscribers. This game has long since lost its way from the land of great games so people are leaving.

All your MMOs are belong to me.

Pretty nice move from Blizzard , i don't think u ppl should rage against them cause they didn't donate $2.2mln instead of $1.1mln.. it's still a huge amount of money and will help a lot of children around the world .

Last time I checked Blizzard were not a charity that gave money out, they are a bloody business, if they wanted they could have given fuck all, and kept everything ebcause they are a fuuckign business.


Maybe u are mistaking charities that give money out for free and businesses that are meant to generate money.

Agreed, anyone taking a shot at Blizzard over this needs to remember that they didn't have to do anything. They were making millions before, and they will continue to do so. This was a great gesture and people looking to condemn them over it are just petty.

Exactly. People can bitch and moan as much as they like, but if you want to complain abut the charitable actions of others, even if it is a marketing gimmick, how much of your time or money have YOU given?  If all the users of these forums gave half of the money they spent on their MMO subscriptions, how much would that be? I'm not saying that I do this, I haven't given to a charity in quite some time, but, before you call out Blizzard for doing something charitable, they didn't have to give money from the vanity pets to anybody else, they still would have sold just as many of them.

A witty saying proves nothing.

 Blizzard needs to make money so they release pets that have nothing to do with the game play, im fine with that. They decide to give half of the money they make to charity now thats just awesome. Thanks Blizzard for helping make the world a better place for some dying kids. I hope some other companies do the same thing.

My my I smell a fanboy 

I just pointed out that the customers donated not blizzard no need to get so defensive to them geez....

Technically blizzard did as well. They didn't have to give anything. They could have just introduced the pets and people would have bot them regardless. Its horrible how people still bash blizzard even when they actually do something nice for a change.

I gotta stand up for Recco, here. The people who bought the pets DID NOT donate the money. Blizzard did. Blizzard is under no obligation to give any proceeds from any sale to any charity, even if it says it will. Those people bought pets. If they had given enough of a fuck about the "Make a Wish Foundation", then they would have skipped the pet and given the $10-$15 directly do that foundation. They bought a service, period.

A witty saying proves nothing.

Have any of you actually ever seen, met or spoken with a child that was a Make A Wish recipient?

I have.

What Blizzard did was good.

Stop thinking that the world revolves around you and your petty opinions.

Show some compassion and act like human beings.

Amen. Keogh is correct. We should all take a look at what this organization does regardless of WHO gives them money.

Oh yes they did.

 

How do you offset sinking quarterly reports ?
Contributions.

 

If you do not understand the actions behind the simplest business model,then commenting from ignorance is just,well,ignorant :)

To do nothing would not allow those much needed write-offs.

Ever question why there are 1-2 GMs per 4-5 servers now instead of 3-4 per server ?

Quarterly reports my friend. They may have 6 million Asian subs or Asian/Euro combined, but it is not the same money they would get in the US. There,laws,etc,they have to,for lack of a better term and to not go into dull detail,"Sublet" the game to publishers in those other countries.

 

So,instead of WOW reaping the maximum level of profit, the reap 1/8 or less. WoW will never die due to contractual obligations in those other countries, but it's bread and butter resides within the contiguous United States, and we are all just about done with this Bar-B-que. So,how do you creep closer to the red without actually hitting the red ? Contributions,layoffs,etc,etc.

So yah,I reiterate,they did have to do this
