This event is the very reason why gold sellers exist. But it's not the reason why this event is occurring.
If folks are arguing now about access and more, wait until RMT comes, the have and have not infighting will be turned up to 10+, when adults with plastic will become the uber elites. Blizzard would make a killing keeping "whales" happy.
If Blizzard can get away with a sub+RMT (like SOE does with EQ2), they will be sitting on a gold mine.
You KNOW it's coming, just check your account management -- you don't need credits for subs, afterall.
Because the one in charge of the project of doing a fight club resemblance in Blizzard had no clue what the Fight Club was about and how they felt proud of having nothing to do with money.
Personally, I don't think that will fly due to how the classes are set up. Unless you go in and any class becomes some instant warrior (one class design deal). Otherwise, Blizzard will have to accommodate all sub-classes, and I doubt there will be many wanting to see a Holy paladin down a 10 million HP boss, with the mechanics that tanks and DPS demand.
Afterall, it's about bringing the player, not the class...right?
Only read a few of these posts but seriously consider this question.
What would you rather have?
A select choice of rich people slowly using the game and getting all the bugs out in the first few days.
10million users crowding the brawl arena therefore creating immense lag and crashing all the servers due to overpopulation?
I know which i would choose,quit whining and get over it,its blizzs game not ours,they can do what they hell they want. END OF!
why does content get nerfed after a while so that also the others can see bosses and get HC achieves (ICC and DS raidbuff) they always give the reason that they want people to see more content.
but somehow with this something that's just personal epeen and something you might want to do on your own time they feel the need to restrict it and make it one fight at a time.
and in no way people can seriously call nabbing a ticket of the BMAH "effort" that's just plain silly
I still dont get why they decided to make this whole thing like a solo version of the ring of blood that's even more silly
I never had any serious interest (thank the gods)in this but I would have liked to try it out now I wont bother. I dont really feel like staying up till 4am or later or stand in a 4hour line to just see or try something.
It feels like that quest in jade forest during beta you know the one with the meditating that was bugged? people had to stand in line for hours before they could finish it. and there where always douches that just ran to the front and just kept spamming the NPC bugging it out for the other person who was in the middle of the quest. Now this just seems like a server wide version of that buggy quest on a permanent base lol.

If WoW would never be about RMT, if all you have is WoW, you would've never seen a feature that you wouldn't use. Otherwise, you'll see Starcraft and DiabloIII services on your Battle.net page.
Denial doesn't make it disappear. It's there, and Blizzard is hoping the 0000s turn into 9999s. And there's some people in this game with plastic that can charge it to that...and you bet we'll have some shiny new heroes in Azeroth.
They also first have to start selling gold themselves or 'credits'. I seriously don't think this will happen. What you are talking about is just a conspiracy theory and you know what those are like. You can complain about something that is maybe not even going to happen if you want...
Also if you think that waiting is going to reduce the cost, you have another thing coming because most people will still price gouge these so you need to rely on freebie invites from friends.
Looks like Brawlers Guild is an uninstanced public viewable event. So the Gold cost and rariety of the item is making a little more sense to me; I do not want 3,000 people sitting around while I am trying to complete these challenges, mercilessly hitting me with tomatos or whatever. Likewise, I dont want those 3,000 people running around in the arena with me while I am trying to do content.
You shouldn't pay gold to do new content? I'm sorry but you have been paying gold to see content for a long time. You act like you have to pay 100,000 gold to see a new dungeon.
But I bet everyone would love to grind their way to an invite by doing something ingame instead of having to give some random in trade chat 500 gold in a few weeks. What would you rather do? Do 15 dailies every day for a week or just spend a few hundred gold and get instant access?
Do you know that as we speak you can buy 509iLvl ToES HC gear (gear that drops in a raid that even its normal mode is not opened for anyone yet) for real money?
My current toon in one of those MMOs is worth $600 just on training alone. There's friendly reminders that some credit card exchanges have per month limits of around $15,000/mon, too.
They'll be selling an exclusive item shortly for over $1,000 (that's RL money cost, not IM points).
I support RMT. Did it with EQ2, and I don't mind it in WoW. As long as it regulated right (perhaps paying for mental health treatment for addiction, for example. As RMT in WoW will cause more problems than in other games. WoW wasn't setup for RMT, and that transition will be painful, especially due to the addiction to purples and social/class warfare).
Crazy theories going around here. People quitting the game while they don't even have a clue what will happen. Freaking out over nothing.
there is no other instance to date that requires a fee to attempt. and that is the problem. sure spending gold to get access right away is nice, but it isnt fair to the players that dont have the means. they are forced to wait till their more wealthy counterparts distribute the invites.
Or, you can fuck off and build a better system, as the no longer paying customer says.Slow down, as the Pandaren say.
"Sorry you weren't arbitrarily chosen to be allowed to play today, better luck next time"
Seriously never been more glad I quit than now. Good times were had, good times have sadly ended. To the next fool with Activision.
