I m not sirprised at all. As always when it comes to money, Blizz is the King.

They know that ppl will buy both ESO & Wildstar. They also release D3 RoS in a few days. So whats the point releasing WoD now?

They also know that many ppl will leave both ESO & Wildstar after the free month and many more (as in any new mmo) in the upcoming months. If you add that the dust from RoS will settle down in some months too, you realize that there will be many ppl who will be looking for a new or old gaming home.

Thats where the WoD will play its role. Blizzard once again knows the way as it concerns sales.

Wait, did Bill actually say Warlords of Draenor costs $49.99 or $69.99 for an expansion?

This is not a stand alone game with one month free, right?


Hey bleed them while you can.


The $100 alpha invite cost to test EQN:L, a free to play game, does show theres more than just one born every minute.

Hokie, it's $60 for alpha invite actually... and I think that's reasonable because alpha is enormously early in the game's development, and yet they let players in. 

It's a wonder they let players in at all.

NDC19 unless this is actually another language besides English

it says $99.99 for the Trailblazers pack. (Unless you really want to nit-pick me over 1 cent?)


And there is a video out there with Dave Georgeson with a incredulous look on his face when he was talking about how many people actually bought into the $100 Trailblazer package.


LIke a said, theres more than just one born every minute.

I totally agree orbitxo.  D3 RoS changes have made the game a total blast to play again.  My wife and I both bought it and play co-op on a daily basis (since the loot changes have been implemented).

Diablo is back as far as I am concerned.  I look forward to playing it with the wife every day now!  Cannot wait to try out the new character class "Crusader"!

D3 RoS looks good, but I'm not going to pay full price for what should be a patch in the first place. The content they are adding isn't worth the money they are asking...completely disappointed with that game. Ditto goes for WoW...done with that game forever (Great ride while I was at it though).

ESO will be my addiction of choice for the forseeable future, and possibly EQN:L...we'll see how that shapes up. Wildstar doesn't interest me in the least though...don't like the cartoony graphics, gameplay, or anything else about it.
