WoW Players Consider Amassing Gold on Rumors of Call of Duty Coming to BattleNet

WoW Players Consider Amassing Gold on Rumors of Call of Duty Coming to BattleNet - MMORPG.com

Late last week, it came to light that players could suddenly log into their Call of Duty accounts using BattleNet credentials. This led many to believe that any future Call of Duty games may be coming to BattleNet in much the same way that Destiny 2 did last year. As a result, World of Warcraft players are speculating on a rise in token prices and are beginning to amass gold with the knowledge that, if CoD arrives, it can be purchased with BNet Balance that can be bought with a WoW Token.

WoW Tokens can be purchased with real world cash and placed on the World of Warcraft auction house where they can be traded for in-game gold. Tokens were first introduced in 2015.

Many posters in a several WoW Economy Reddit threads believe that, while there may be an initial spike in the WoW token prices (currently abou 186,000 gold), that the long range price for a token will remain relatively steady.

In the announcement of BFA we had a spike, but the price of the token stabilized a week after that in 180k.

I think that from now on, there will be spikes in each announcement, but prices should not double or triple as in other situations, perhaps increases of 10% or a little more than that

With Call of Duty games typically released in November, it may be a good time to start HORDE-ing your gold if you'd rather purchase the next game with a WoW token over cash. The same applies to any game on the BattleNet Launcher, including the forthcoming Battle for Azeroth expansion headed out the gate in the fall.
