OP  8/16/12 2:50:47 PM#1

The World of Warcraft community page has been updated with the news that when patch v5.0.4 is released on August 28th, all races will be available to players.

With the release of patch 5.0.4, we’re making all the races of Azeroth playable by anyone, no matter which version or expansion of World of Warcraft they own. This includes the enigmatic pandaren, who will become available for play when Mists of Pandaria is released on Tuesday, September 25. We want the entire World of Warcraft community to be able to embrace their inner goblin, blood elf, worgen, draenei, or pandaren from the moment they step foot into the world of Azeroth.

Thanks to Vannor for the tip!

This is good news for players just starting.

But imagine this, you are a long time player, purchased all of the expansions to play the races when they became available or be locked out from them and you spent all of that money to do so. Now newbies can do that for nothing. lol, I feel like I've been robbed.

But yeah, perhaps it will retain some people, attract more subs, a good move since they are losing subs (down to just over 9 milliion according to the last financial report).. sensing a little desperation here too, but not a total panic switch to f2p level yet.

Do you feel robbed when someone gets upgraded to Cata level account if they get a Scroll of Res? I bought all the expansions at full price yet I don't feel robbed in any way. Same way  I didn't feel robbed when everyone got all Guild Wars chapters for 20 bucks when I paid 60 dollars per expansion.

basically, everyone has the same client. account properties determine what you can or can't play.

From forums

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/6352435511

This is great but how will starting areas be handled?

The starting areas will be accessible as well. For example, you'll be able to adventure on the Wandering Isle as a pandaren when Mists of Pandaria is released, but you won't be able to visit Pandaria. They're separate locations.

I felt robbed then too. :) But meh, let the buyer beware. The SOR should have been a hint in retrospection.

Let the buyer beware?  I don't think Cavet emptor applies here...  You had a product first, when it was fresh and new.  If you bought a new Iphone4 at release it was a few hundred bucks, now you can get one far cheaper.  Were you "robbed" if you bought one at release compared to having one at the price you can get it now?  

No.

Reality check sir.

Oh and Buyer Beware is for shoddy products, like snake oils and the like, its an ancient roman term.  Typical its you get what you pay for type deal.  Context.

Will they be Ally exclusive like every other new race that was acctually interesting?

 

We give them space gargoyles, the other guys, short elves that are already in the game.

 

We give them transforming werewolves, the other guys goblins that they already almost have.

 They're not changing any races faction allegience.  They're just making races available to all players regardless of which expansions they may or may not own.

Quite relevant if the product is required to unlock a race at the time then it's free later on to all who don't need to purchase the product. And yes you got what you paid for then. But not now, because the value will be reduced meaning people in the past have lost out while new players gain. Very dodgy. But may the buyer beware back then, despite the quirks and benefits  later on in this month.

Others don't have to feel robbed, fair play, I do , some others might as well. Horses for courses.

I don't think Guild Wars 2 will affect WoW numbers for any length of time.  WoW competitors have come and gone, tried and failed - and WoW is still going strong. Because you can buy GW2 outright, I'm sure people will play it and WoW.

Would WoW have offered this feature if GW2 didn't exist?  My guess is no, since it forces people to buy the expansion.  Maybe 6 months to a year after the expansion they might have opened it up but certainly not when the expansion releases.

Pretty obvious to me it is a retention tactic to staunch the flow of bleeding subs that will be lost to Anet's financial model of buy to play.

I'm not saying that Blizz will not be successful in their new expansion.  Just that revenue potential is what is being fought for.

The people I feel sorry for the most are the players who have paid a preorder for MoP just so they can play a Pandaren and don't care about levelling to level 90 but now anyone will be able to roll a Panda for free (plus gametime, of course) after September 25. :| :|

I don''t have to know how to make a better game, I only need to know where the "CANCEL" button is!

Just another Blizzard effort to attract some perceived audience that has never played the game.

"Soloists and those who prefer small groups should never have to feel like they''re the ones getting the proverbial table scraps, as it were." - Scott Hartsman, Senior Producer, Everquest II
"People love groups. Its a fallacy that people want to play solo all the time." - Scott Hartsman, Executive Producer, Rift
