Can't speak for others, but since I played GW1, I never understood how Blizzard could not "afford" to make WOW F2P or at least B2P. Most of my friends, including my wife, played WOW so I played with them and enjoyed it, inspite of the monthly sub. Just because we tolerate a monthly sub doesn't mean we liked paying it or agreed to it; just the nature of the beast.

I think many more people are voicing their displeasure with the P2P model becuase of games like GW1 and more specifically GW2. People ask themselves, if Anet can pull off GW2 with a B2P model, why am I paying a monthly sub for WOW?

I wouldn't discount everyone as just following a seasonal hype, I think it is very much a legitimate discussion. Is WOW still worth a P2P model? I personally would say no.

Well, Blizzard very well might do just that at some point.

However, just because one company does something doesn't mean that all of them should. If Blizzard feels that their product is worth X and Y per month, and they can get it, why would they change? If they see the industry moving toward buy to play and free to play but they can still get subs then "good for them" and they are getting the profit they want.

If they find that it's better for them, in the long run, to make the game buy to play or f2p then they will do so.

Agreed. I was speaking more towards people's attitudes towards payment models. I believe in capitalism and in the free market system. If Blizzard can keep making money off the P2P model, then all power to them; just don't want them (Blizzard) to expect me to pay haha. I'm personally done with paying monthly subs for games.

There are few things OP seems to have missed:

1. $15 a month is almost neglectable for a sector of wow subscribers, so they don't even feel when they are charged .

2. Certain sector of wow is not composed of content burners, so they can even be behind the content release rate.

3. We tend to assume that subscribers demographics is similar to our guild, forum, website, etc. 

1. So... just because some people can afford to be ripped off, does that still make it right? (most likely if you asked the parents who are paying for a lot of the kids who play wow, I'm sure they would beg to differ with you).

2. How does being in front or behind the pace of content release justify wow's cost, content quantity and quality? If you're going to tell me that Blizzard is timing the release of wow's content on the basis of the average progression of their playerbase, what does that say about other mmo's playerbase who enjoy a much faster pase of content (for a much lower cost), and more importantly, what does that say about wow's playerbase and Blizzard itself? Considering wow's kiddy-friendly and fast-paced progression, it certainly cannot be that wow's content is more difficult in comparison to other mmos.

3. Does that include you?

1. Again, by stating that there is a rip off you are enforcing people a valuemeter, when the $15 a month is more like a convention that has been passed in order to avoid people saying something is too expensive. I would say that the parents of kids playing mmos prefer less content so their children could actually do something new like studying. In the lesser case, they won't even care about the game itself.

2. It says that Blizzard put the money according requirements of most subscribers instead of going like crazy for a 1-2% of them. It makes sense. Since content burners don't pay extra there is no reason to cater them too much if that would imply significant extra costs.

3. Not sure what this actually means, it doesn't matter if includes you, me or warner coyote, the idea is that wow population is not represented by a particular group like people who dwells on these forums or wow official forums, since it is actually a pretty heterogenous crowd. A lot of them barely take this things seriously, they just want to play a bit have fun and go to sleep. 

1. I would argue that parents would rather pay once for a video game than having to pay for the box and then 15 bucks a month. If my kid wanted me to do that for him, I would make sure he "worked" for it by completing chores around the house. What we all say on these forums is obviously our opinions; I'm not enforcing a valuemeter on anyone, more than anything, revealing how I value the 15 bucks a month for wow.

2. I understand that gaming companies will cater to their largest playerbase as that makes fiscal sence. However, I think it decreases the value of the P2P model for WOW because you are getting less for your money compared to other games which provide more for less than what you are paying for. I was speaking on context to other games and what they charge for their content and the frequency of release of said content.

3. I completely agree.

The players are their own worst enemy - all the time they pay and accept this paltry offering, nothing will change.

Blizzard could easily put new stuff in their game every two weeks even. Let's face it, after the starting zones, it's the same respective journey for Horde or Alliance right up to cap. They could at least change the quests and content regularly. Isn't $150m a month enough to warrant giving us something new to do, or what else are the subs for?

No point in crying about it , every time WoW releases an expansion they're always sold out and back ordered. So your point is pretty much invalid since WoW popularity is still quite strong.  Besides Maple Story in the MMO world , nothing comes close to WoW popularity.

Dont worry they compensate it with 10 times more

FREE TV ads,

FREE permanent banner ads on popular non-gaming websites,

FREE goodie bags, invitations and presents to "professional" reviewers inadequately praising everything they do and give them high ratings

FREE news about even most unsignificant minor patches by websites on their payroll

FREE hype taking the glory for donations made by player.

FREE hype about so called "subscriber" records, of their global "active" account peaks

than any other game could even come close to.

Of course they won't put that much money into it unless it makes money for them. Activision has to get their revenue from something that keeps a good cashflow going. Right now WoW is the only regular cash cow for them.

Not that I care about WoW or your topic much, but this isn't correct.  Rift is the only MMO that does this.  TSW is starting the same way, but we'll have to wait and see how that pans out for Funcom.

Regardless, 1 maybe 2 MMOs does not equal most.

It's really nice of you to reply, not caring about WoW or my topic.  It shows you care.  Thanks.

You're welcome

Blizzards updates on their games has been painfully slow, Diablo 3 is a prime example of what could of been a steady cash flow for them but they completely dropped the ball with it. The slow slow slow updates on glaring issues and customer unrest is painful.

With WoW ya their updates are poor in the later half of the expansions recently.. though one thing I still believe they do best and thats customer service.

I won't get started on Sc2's last patch.. pos caused more harm than good even if I like the updated UI.

More or less i think it comes down to the hidden agenda's of the suits. I think they force the focus far to much on new and better things we can't see yet, while they just spray some WD40 on the old workhorses. I also think at this point activision is dragging blizzard down and there is nothing to be done about it. Blizzard gets the allowance and activision gets the paycheck.. atleast thats how it feels.

I'm going to have to say you are completely wrong here. Now thier content isnt as frequent as some other MMOs but it IS more frequent than alot. Add to that thier content is always a new raid, new dailies/non raid PVE stuff, sometimes an event, sometimes new 5mans, and each tier is a new armor set.  Ontop of that thier content for the most part is more polished than others MMOs content and I would say your topic is completely invalid. Really the only thing expansions tend to add that thier regular content patches dont inculde is new zones and a race or class.

The "scandal" is paying 15 a month and not getting 100% of the game. Even if content is hard to get, extreemly rare, or takes years to obtain EVERYTHING in a subscription game should be included (minus expansions). Blizzards cash shop is the scandal. I keep hearing "well its just cosmetic stuff". Blah blah blah. Collecting cool looking mounts, pets, ect is done by a "type" of player. Its no diffrent than if you enjoy 5mans or raids. Its content that should be in the game not sold in a cash shop and sure as hell not for 3/4ths the price of an expansion. Though its not only WOW doing it anymore. Even a lower quality game (in terms of content and polish) like TSW is getting away with it.

 

PS. Stop making bad threads about WOW. I HATE defending the game. I told Blizzard they could shove WOW when they introduced thier cash shop.  I wish I would have when they came up with the idea of sticking ingame items in thier card game.

Considering that there are so many F2P MMO's out there that don't even charge you for the game, let alone an expansion or an update, I'd have to say that you're very wrong. "RIFT is the only MMO that does this?" Are you serious? Even in the P2P arena there are many who don't charge for an update.
