WoW finally shot itself in the Dick.

 

 

 

 

Good riddance.  

 

My only regret is that the LCD will flood all the other games.

MARK my words as this is the end of wow as it's been to be known. The cash shop will plummet this games numbers by another 7millipn.

They needed to be going back to vanilla style wow not the quick cash shop easy mode they have made this game. I left lotro to play this as lotro stopped dungeon raids due to F2p. But what I found in wow was completely easy mode raiding dungeons.


The current end game panda land dungeons are a complete joke. Dps through them they are ridiculously easy.


That's what mean when I said mark my words.

Raiding in wow is easy. And I'm not talking LFR which is a tour of a raid.

I gave wow a chance last month but it's just an easy mode MMO and with a cash shop it's got worse.

While I agree with this in theory, in practice $60 seems very steep.

Currently 1-90 leveling service are charging 175$ per character(not even a proper leveling site, just one person who is selling his service in ownedcore.com). if you are saying 60$ for a level 90 is steep then you have no idea what you are talking about. You are a column writer in mmorpg.com, you should be more knowledgeable about these stuff.

As for this service being stupid, it was just a matter of time. whether we like it or not thousands of players buy leveling service from illegal sites, just like thousands of players buy gold from gold farmers. if anyone should be making money off of WoW that should be blizzard and not chinese prisoners. i support this feature. now they should just add a RMAH where people can sell their extra gold.

The service is $brilliant$

It's called monetization or "Taking your customer's for all you can get"

ps. I agree with Suzie $60 for hitting a couple keys, is kind of steep

I made a double sided USB cable and I plugged my Console into my PC... or did I plug my PC into my Console? Anyway I can now play Console games on my PC! and play PC games on my Console!

FRIGGING AWESOME!

Yet another example of WoW blatantly stealing ideas from other mmo's.  EQ2 already offers instant character leveling to 85 - for $35.  But hey, at least WoW was the first mmo.

It's sad how I can still remember the old feelings of respect that I had for Blizzard as a company, back in their old Warcraft 1-3, Starcraft, and Diablo 1-2 days.  How far the mighty have fallen due to their immense greed.   

 

Lol, yes, you're completely correct. Totally greedy. I've taken the time to create a list of price increases on WoW's subscriptions since 2004:

 

Year Sub Cost % Increase
2004 $14.99 N/A
2005 $14.99 0%
2006 $14.99 0%
2007 $14.99 0%
2008 $14.99 0%
2009 $14.99 0%
2010 $14.99 0%
2011 $14.99 0%
2012 $14.99 0%
2013 $14.99 0%
2014 $14.99 0%

 

If that's not greed, I don't know what is. 

Great response, however..  WoW was also the first mmo that I am aware of to start charging $15 a month - setting a new greedy standard price,  Before WoW most of the mainstream mmo's were only charging $10-$12 a month.  So yes, thank you for reminding me of that fact with your fanboi retort.   

 

Also.  My original comment was basing my argument on the fact that they are adding a new optional service, at (yet again) an exorbitant price (greedy), which another game has already been doing (ie not an original idea) for several months at a cheaper (less-greedy) price point.

 

So, your retort of posting that they have been charging the same monthly fee for years, is really not a relevant response to my original post at all.  Please feel free correct your response with a relevant argument, regarding their pricing of their other optional content compared to other mmos, that proves that they are in fact charging cheaper (or at least similar) prices for similar products, and have not become a greedy game developer over the last 10 years.  If you can not provide a relevant argument, then please refrain from pathetically attempting to refute someone else's opinion just because it differs from your own.

 

I would never be so brazen as to say that WoW is a bad game - after all, 9 million people cant be wrong.  However.  I can and will say that I do not like the degradation I have seen of Blizzard's business ethics over the last 18 years.

If it's truly $60 that is a freakin ripoff, EQ2 gives you lv 85 for $35. Infact most people I know said they wouldn't even pay $35 for something like that. I'm sure some people would pay $60 for a lv 90 but bet A LOT more would be $25-$35 to get a lv 90.

Kills any thoughts I had about returning, and paying $225 annually. Blizzard's greedy but not dumb. Must be a lot of folks that will do this.

Yeah I think they have priced themselves out of the market with this to be honest.

I think people would prefer to do it legit, but you can buy level 90s cheaper than this from dodgy 3rd parties, or just buy a bot and level yourself in 3-5 days.

I would even go as far as saying that if they made it $20, they would get people buying multiple 90s, whereas at $60 a pop, most will be put off even buying one.

Yeah, certain states have to pay taxes on Blizzard micro-transactions. I know the wife and I have to pay here in TX. Not sure if it's an issue of state law in regards to online purchases, or because Blizzard has an office in San Antonio.

Online taxes normally apply if the business has a physical presence in the state where the customer lives.  I work for a company that is scattered all over the place but not in every state, and it so confusing to customers.

Attempting to bring down a staff member for not being completely informed about power leveling services, of all things, seems a bit petty.  imo.

you think blizzard should implement something like SOE Station Exchange from 2005?

where players could sell their EQ2 characters and gold

Watch WoW high ball us with 60 and lower it after a few weeks to make it look like they listen to our call for gaming justice lol when in fact that was always their plan.

Why would anyone question this. It s a smart move by Blizzard. Leveling in WoW doesn t take long, if you want to be lazy, I say gouge them. Good for them.

Blizzard is smart. They set the price high enough to make people think twice about doing it. But it's not so high as to keep everyone away. If people are really desperate to get to 90 fast, they'll pay the fee lol

 Here's a money making idea....make instant max level characters the default and charge 60 bucks if you want to level up on your own!

It's just Blizzard wanting to continue the elevated lifestyle of their board members, CEO, CFO, etc (with HUGE salaries), looking for ways to make it last a little longer.

 

For me, $60 to skip content in an MMORPG which is designed around entertainment, is silly.  Apparently there are some who see games as a waste of time, so they drop $$ to be instantly in the cool club.  That destroys games.

 

It's lame.  And belittles everyone elses efforts .. you know, those who actually play the game?  For Shame, Blizzard.  For shame.

 

Once a game turns into those who spend money vs. those who don't, there is little turning back.  Blizzard has taken the dark path.

Honestly, WoW is old enough that most people have level 90s anyway. It doesn't take that long to level one, so it doesn't really bother me that they're selling them.   I for one do think the price is much too high.  I'm sure there will be plenty of people who are willing to pay it though.
