  • The Impact of WoW’s Instant Boost to Level Cap

    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.

  • Blizzard: $60 for Level 90 Boost Explained

    Speaking to Eurogamer, Blizzard's Ion Hazzikostas explained why the cost of leveling a single character in World of Warcraft will cost $60, a price many feels is too high. Blizzard wants to allow players to boost more than one character without, he said, the need to purchase a second copy of the Warlords of Draenor expansion. The $60 price point, however, was chosen so as to "not devalue the accomplishment of leveling".

  • $60 for a Level 90 Character Boost? Say It Ain't So!

    WowInsider.com is reporting that the World of Warcraft live servers with the new cash shop items in it are showing a "Level 90 Character Boost" for the whopping price of $60.00. According to the report, it appears that this is a mistake on Blizzard's part since pre-orders for the Warlords of Draenor expansion have yet to go live, which will also include one free character boost to 90.

  • Free-to-Play Fatigue: Are Micro-transactions Losing Their Appeal?

    This week, Blizzard announced that its subscription base for World of Warcraft rose by more than 100,000. Since all logic says that a near-decade-old MMO should be tailing off, that's something of a surprise--especially since game industry augurs have spent the last year or so predicting the death of subscription-based games. Is the turnaround just a fluke, or could it mean gamers aren't as gung-ho about free-to-play as business analysts say they are?
