    25 bucks for such things is redicilous and overpriced, even if you dont agree its true.. you can buy a game for that crap.

    Sure i would even pay 35 bucks to migrate all my nine characters from my server, im a person who plays each toon every day, im not the person who just plays a main. Having to pay for 9 is just redicilous. If i migrate one ill just get bored.

    I am sorry I never knew there was a "too much money".

    If you can make more money, there isn't a reason not to. You are one of those believer that "this company make enough profit, they can make more, but they shouldn't just to be nice"?

    I am sorry but most company out there uses "if I can make $1 more, I will make $1 more", unfortunately this is how pretty much most business in the real world works.

    True, I "quit" the game a few months back due to having no one to play with and not being able to raid. Now my hours could change and I might be able to raid again, but my guild has disbanded and a lot have gone to a guild on a different realm. I like these people a lot and would like to play with them again, but paying 60 quid to move my chars? not a chance, already done it twice and there's no discount or anything.

    if you are brazillian it's even worse. R$40,00 per toon.

    if you look at it through the optics of currency, that's actually cheaper than the american prices. but keeping in mind how much brazillians and americans earn per month, that price is heavy on BRs. "HUEHEUHE" for you, blizz
    Warlorcs of Draenorc made me quit. You can't have my stuff.

    Oh, so what happened in your life that made robbery seem like something people chose to take part in?

    No you're not.

    If you can make more money, there isn't a reason not to.
    Friends, family, location, opprtunity, time, hobbies, risk, health, etc.

    You are one of those believer that "this company make enough profit, they can make more, but they shouldn't just to be nice"?
    I think the guy honestly just has an opinion on the price of a video game, but if you need to squabble over your worldview for your Friday to be complete, by all means, have at it.

My retirement fund is full of investments in corporations, my kids college fund is full of investments in corporations. I EXPECT that they maximize their profits, sorry just the facts.

    There are so many subscribers to this game that if transferring was free, no one would be able to do it because of the long wait time. The servers would be bogged down with transfer requests. I do think $25 is a bit much to be paying for it, though, especially when you're moving more than one character.

    You gave them a product they monetized and sold at a markup, you did your homework and made good marks in school so you could be a valuable asset to them, you volunteered to go back to school for additional training to add more value to their investment in you, you did well enough that the company saw the value in promoting you to a higher position, and you earned the check to provide for your family.

    Corporations don't give people breaks. Corporations use people to make money. And to do that, they pay them money. They're not evil; they're not nice.

    Hell, they're not even what this OP is about.

    If i could mail cross server and start at a higher level while leveling a class i already have over lvl 80 then i would be pretty much fine about rerolling a server.
    OP spells at Ashran? Based on faction population? Yes, WODs gonna be the most awesome expansion ever! Propably gonna hit under 4 million sub mark.

    It wasn't overanalyzing, it was operating in the metaphor you used. You exaggerated big time to try and make your point. If you have to compare something to robbery to prove your point, it makes you wonder how much there really is to it. Blizzard has priced the service at $25 and all you can do to change that is vote with your wallet. Persuasion has no place near the truth.

    And I use them to make money, both in salary and investing in companies that I think will maximize profit. Seems like a fair trade off!

    But the OP is about that. He his claiming that the price is ruining the game. What I tried to explain many pages back is that it really isn't and that companies hire smart people to try to determine the right price. The have decided $25 is the right price.

    Blizzard is not hurt by it, when they are they will lower the price. Companies will react. The OP might not like it, but enough people are fine with it that it isn't ruining the game

    Blizzard has shown they will TRY to change if they perceive something is hurting the game. Cata Heroics were too hard in enough people's eyes and they lost enough subs that they changed the approach in MOP. Was it the right move, I don't know. They saw a bleeding in subs, so they bought themsleves a year with the annual pass, did it work? I don't know that either. A company will TRY to adapt to things that they perceive as a threat, and the $25 transfer fee does not appear to be one

    The OP is about Blizzard, Inc. I don't understand how that isn't about a corporation when it's ALL about a corporation.

    Business is business. If people stopped trying to make more money, the world economy would effectively crash. Sometimes "being nice" isn't always what's best for the world.

    That said, I think the price is steep, but I also understand the value of the service I want completed for me.

    If anything, the steep price is to make people think more consciously about which realm they want to play on. They want to prevent mass amounts of people from server hopping, which would lead to all the "popular" realms becoming even more crowded and all the low populated servers to become even less populated.

    That's the ENTIRE reason they give out FREE server transfers to low population realms. But that never once crossed your mind. Nope. They are just mean Blizzard. Mean Blizzard who is actively trying to regulate server populations and keep the insanity down to a bare minimum.

    I know blizzard need to make money........... Only one problem they stop making money all together when someone quits because their guild transfers and/or there are not enough people on their faction for a working AH or enough to make a raiding
