OP  3/02/14 3:34:01 PM#1

Last week, word got out that Blizzard had set its price for boosting a character to level 90 after the World of Warcraft Warlords of Draenor expansion is released. There was already speculation going on, given previous leaks that included surveys with Blizzard asking players how much boosting a character up to cap was worth to them. It was thus pretty inevitable that we were going to see this sort of thing come to the shop. The settled upon price, as we know now, is $60. For those buying the expansion, they will get one character boosted up included, but for others, they’ll have the option to pay in order to save a lot of time. Blizzard eventually responded to the leak, confirming the pricing and explaining the cost. Yet, from a community perspective, there are a few serious questions that have come

I enjoy the game, I still play it, I could care less if someone pays $60 to boost their char. It doesn t effect me in anyway shape or form. I say good on Blizz, if they sell a lot of them.

It is just the game showing its age. The thing is, I could not be bothered to do this anyway. Levelling to 90 takes pretty much no time or serious effort as it is now, certainly going to save my $60 even if I wanted to use this feature.

Also, wth is the point in playing a game when you dont enjoy actually *playing* the game? No thanks!

I guess I won't be returning to WoW then.  Pay-to-Skip content diminishes any value for those who actually want to play the game .. you know, those who actually earned in-game everything they have?

 

Hopefully this kind of crap does not stick well with MMORPG's.  I'm so sick of hearing about how someones time is more important than their money (it's only 12 cups of coffee in this case, etc).  Why bother even buying / downloading a game if you don't really want to play it the way it was meant to be played?

 

Do people just want to trick others into thinking they are bad ass / hardcore, and perhaps weasel their way into the "cool" club?

 

.. leveling in WoW was easier than ever anyways.  /sigh

How?

The content is still there, and with the tech WoW uses you wont notice any difference in number of people leveling.

 

Its a complete non issue in EQ2 and it will be here.

 

Most people in both games already have many max level characters and they might not want to play through burning crusade for the 8th time.

This just kills my enthusiasm for WoD honestly, won't be bothering with WoW again, probably ever.

Not a big deal imo. It is not like Wow is a new game where this could be a P2W type of thing. Pretty much everyone already has a level 90.

 

Besides, it's not like it is hard to get to 90 as it is, with all of the BOA bonuses people can get from 1 to 90 in a few days. Why not let them bypass content they have already ran through, probably multiple times.

I want to be Uncle Owen again.

If you put in a cash shop a MMO will end up resorting to bribery, gambling and huge P2P items. When has it ever not?

While I agree on the side that buying the level-cap is nonsensical and absurd in itself

I support the option to give players the possibility of going into the endgame right away, like GW2 did. For PvP reasons it is very nice.

I think this is a great idea for blizzard. This will put power leveling companies out of business. I don't know how much they charge to power level these days but during vanilla you would be paying up to $200 to power level from 1-60. $60 is a steal to get a max level character legally and instantly! I think I've leveled almost 15 characters to max level over my wow career. I like this option.

I hope they prorate the price if you have a character that's already has some levels into them. I wouldn't mind paying a prorated price to get my level 65 priest to 90.

Who cares if it is a great idea for Blizzard? Are you Blizzard? No you are a consumer, you care for your and our consumer rights and not for the company that wants to row the boat in a total different direction.

Yes the company, in this case Blizzard, is important because it is the birthgiver of the games you and I paly - but I rather abandon a mother that constantly wants to exploit me rather than being on the same level as she is. So No, this will never be supported.

Yes you do not see a problem because you can barely look outside of your room. Look outside the box and understand that a game that turns free to play is shrinking the quality of content it produces to a bare minimum, because the QUALITY which was the initial subject why we bought a game is no longer the main reason for their very income - it is merely the Vanity shop.

What on earth!

Open your mind god damnit, asleep People like you are the problem.

I also think this is great for the average wow player who's sick and tired of grinding out 90 levels for the 10th time! If you can afford it and don't mind spending the cash I see no problem with it. As a consumer I love this option. If you the consumer don't. You have the right to level the old fashion way. It wont make a difference either way.

Yeah.... Having to go through the now sadly outdated Burning Crusade content.. even with the xp boost is not something i look forward to do.. ever.

 

So i give this initiative a big  plus. The game after all is old as the day is long and catching up as a returning player is a daunting investment as it is. Paying to catch up with your friends is not really a sin in my mind,

 

Also seeing how people say that WoW is on "E-Z mode" any potential skill gap would be a non-issue. Heck anyone who left before Cata would pretty much have to re-school them self any way. =P

Options are always okay but not developing a trend that slowly reduces options and turns over to a complete control, like we see now in our society and will increasingly see in the near future.

Fault: The asleep consumer that can not see 1mile infront of him, what will happen next through his very decisions he makes. Mostly indecision turns into a fatal decision.

Honestly this seems to defeat the point of playing a game.

If I was a game designer and I spent months upon months making zones and bosses to only have the higher ups say "Hey lets just let everyone get instant max level so we can make a profit" I'd loose it.

This is only going to hurt the game. It will only help further empty out the zones.

Have we become so lazy that we cannot even play the game anymore?

To be honest I enjoy leveling 1-60. After that I rather kill myself.
