    Teams are things that are formed. They aren't decided upon birth. If they form a team to do something, then that is a decision they make. They can make a different decision and use people who are working on certain things to instead work on something different.

    Maybe if we ask for portals and city NPCs for Karabor and Bladespire to be put on the cash store as DLC, then they'll actually finish them.

    This is sadly depressing all these complaints about things being behind a paywall, which is not that many if you consider the entire scope. Things to consider:

    A) Like others have said, no one is holding a gun to your head and demanding you buy this, or any, cash shop pet/mount/etc.
    B) No one is also saying you have to like it. You can simply just say, you don't like it without making a bunch of contrived assumed reasons to try to justify your standpoint.
    C) And probably most importantly, yes, it's a sub-based game in which I will note despite that rapid increase of inflation over the 10 years that WoW has been out, has never gone up 1 cent. However, take a step back and think of all the art materials, servers, cables, voice actor payrolls, employee payrolls, routers, building costs, advertisement fees, stockholder dividends, and I could go on and on. That money doesn't just magically appear and while WoW does have several million subscribers, $15 a month by itself is *not* going to cut it. They do need supplemental income from time to time to cover extra costs and make sure they have a fair profit at the end of the year so they can continue to create new things. Blizzard is a business, and if they're going to stay in business, they need to make a profit if they're to keep this game we play, and hopefully love, going.

    So before you go all rage face, doomsayer, trolling, whatever, take a step back and think for a moment. Every dollar you contribute to this game is going to keeping the game alive in some form or fashion even if you don't see it up front on your screens.

    I'll probably get flamed for this, but that's fine. If this gets through to even just one person, I'll be happy.

    The pets are all 10U$D's ( https://us.battle.net/shop/en/produc...ategories=pets )
    If you don't want it, don't buy it.
    I personally like the pet, agreed that it's a sub game, but it's not hurting anyone putting this in game besides people who just complain to complain. I really hope these people leave the Community soon, we don't want you.

    Would that apply to anything, like, heroic gear?

    If I was a dev, I would totally tweet this as a joke just to see people jumping to the pavlowian "CASH SHOP" response and the tears of rage. And then never put it in the game

    Works fine...and since every cool pet and mount that has been posted got this response, we must be looking at 2 new pet shop items every month in WoD

    So you are fine with buying it... Okay.... but would it also not just be lovely... If they added actually pets and mounts to the game? that you could earn or just get in game, could buy them with, oh what is it called, IN GAME currency. but no, you are right it is only 10 dollars, like the other 10 pets for a total of 110 dollars with the soon to be added, Added with the 8 mounts of 25 dollars for a sum of 200 dollars. Yeah 310 dollars is a fair prise for mounts and pets if you want them. when you alreayd sub for it...

    Let's devote our time to hype up cute corgi pets that the soccer moms can buy while the rest of us get mad about how the dungeons are too linear and too short.

    If it's tied to a charity I could possibly buy it other that I'm not going to. I'm not much into vanity pets or pokemon pet battles.

    There is no heroic gear in the blizz store, that would ruin the game and blizz knows that!

    You are most certainly correct. That being said, how can it be so justifiable all the time that all the cool and nice looking pets that they put a Lot of effort into always end up behind a paywall as of lately? It used to be they make a really amazing mount / pet and it goes in game. Depending on how cool it is, that effects its difficulty in acquiring it. I am fine with one or two here and there, but they are just rollin em out. For a sub game they certainly are getting into micro transactions heavily. Best of both worlds I guess. The monthly sub fee and the F2P micor transactions.

    B) No one is also saying you have to like it. You can simply just say, you don't like it without making a bunch of contrived assumed reasons to try to justify your standpoint.
    Just like you're doing here? People state their opinions and want to state their reasoning, just as you are doing.


    C) And probably most importantly, yes, it's a sub-based game in which I will note despite that rapid increase of inflation over the 10 years that WoW has been out, has never gone up 1 cent.

    Im sorry, this is just wrong on So many levels. 7 Million subs have been fine since BC. They didn't start store stuff until Cata. Not to mention all the F2P games seem to do just as good staying afloat with Far less money then what blizzard brings in monthly just on subs alone. 7 million times 15 is 105mil, a Month. That is 1.2Billion a year before taxes and any costs. That is subs Alone. I dare you to continue this line even knowing how much money before taxes and costs they make. They hardly "need" supplemental income of any kind with the kind of money they are bringing in on Just WoW. Lets not forget they also have Starcraft sales, diablo sales, and Hearthstone.

    So yes, in short, 15$ a month Will and Has cut it since they started. So much so that they have been able to grow and expand. Saying it wont is complete and utter Bull Crap.

    So before you go all rage face, doomsayer, trolling, whatever, take a step back and think for a moment. Every dollar you contribute to this game is going to keeping the game alive in some form or fashion even if you don't see it up front on your screens.

    I'll probably get flamed for this, but that's fine. If this gets through to even just one person, I'll be happy.
    Doubtful. You're post is not exactly a logical one. They get more then enough money on a yearly basis just from 7million people staying subbed. It was enough in vanilla with fewer, enough in BC, and has been more then enough since. They are by no means hurting for money. You want supplementary income? They have character renames, character appearance change, server transfer, and faction change. Constantly adding new pets and mounts to the store is not warranted and trying to justify it is nothing more then a sorry attempt to make yourself feel better about spending money. They have more then enough coming in elsewhere to keep this game alive. If not, F2P games wouldn't be a thing now would they.

    Bottom line, stop buying into it. Stop paying for the pets so they can return to adding things to the game instead of gutting more and more features from the expansion. I mean, wheres your supplementary income when all I hear is how they can't do this, or wont add that, or are changing this or that is being delayed or pushed back or its now not guaranteed to be in at launch.
