    As most have said, there really wasn't even an online store at that point, let alone charity pets. Wow was still brand new then. The online store and all that came after Katrina.

    Oh man, I bet it took all your strength to stop before you said they deserved it as payback for Pearl Harbor.

    OT: There was no blizz store selling pets back then, but I'm sure there's other conspiracy theories that would make tons more sense.

    A lack of a blizzard store at the time of the Katrina hurricane kinda puts a spanner in the works there don't you think?

    Notice how, Blizzard, while still a successful company at the time, were nowhere near where they are today. Also notice that the Pet store or anything like it (Money for in-game items) was nowhere near "out" at the time of the Hurricane.

    More importantly, note that Blizzard is a company, not a charity, and while it is very generous of them to do things like this, it is in no way their obligation.


    Also keeping this time line in mind, the blizzard store wasn't even around until Wrath of the Lich King. Which was what, the end of 2008 when it was launched so I'm pretty sure the pet store didn't launch until 2009.

    This is probably why blizzard was so reluctant to donate any money from the pets anyway because of people like you, the OP, who aren't satisfied with anything a company does try to do for the better good.

    Considering that the Store didn't even exist at the time, and the rest of the thread is people ragging on the OP, I'm going to go ahead and close this, since I see no further benefit of leaving it open for discussion.
