    What kind of stupid poll is this. The OP is obviously biased and the options are about the furthest thing you can get from objective as possible.

Not to mention you can already do this with RAF and it's more than a 100% increase AND allows two characters to summons each other.

    SW:TOR does this already and it has worked out extremely well for them.
    To me the raf thing isn't really the same thing. I can see what you mean though. And isn't swtor free to play now? Even if it isn't those things I wouldn't care about. They're only cosmetic so it's not like it's a big deal but the faster leveling does kind of creep near the boundary of buying character power. Especially when we already pay a sub fee to play I would expect anything that could give us an advantage to be achievable in game.

    And the poll is kind of bad...I didn't choose any of the options.

    Do you even understand what this "shop" is?
    to make purchases directly within the game.
    Nothing to do with the cash shop we have with mounts/pets. So please take your ignorance else where.

    Yeah...

    And it is my money, I'll do with it as I please as long as the store doesn't become "buy-to-win" like other games.

    I remember a thread a few days about the Asian WoW promoting using Net Cafes with something that sounds exactly like that. I personally do not want to see it hit US or EU Servers, I'm still not happy about Pets/Mounts being forced to be purchased instead of being available in game. I think that, with a subscription, every bit of content made for WoW should be available to obtain in game (unless special events, i.e. Blizzcon).

    Horde - Tarren-Mill
    Culmination - Nulo - Amissio - Dreadnought

    Important lesson: Don't create polls angry.
    That is not dead which can eternal lie.
    And with strange aeons even death may die.

    I always remember that Blizzard talked about how they will never add any real advantages by using the store.
    That 100% boost is NOT the beginning of the end of the world, it will NOT spiral into tier gear and stuff, at most, yes they will probably have transmog items. Just remember that leveling quickly isn't exactly a big deal in any way (and they'll probably disable it for 90-9? content when next expansion comes out).

    Blizzard knows that unfair advantages in a game like WoW would destroy all competition. The only reason they did that to Diablo 3 is because it doesn't matter if you spend some money, there's no real competition (besides light pvp). Anybody worrying is just

    i agreed with special mount/pet thing.. unless its a only 1 time event like blizzcon* or a charity event (red cross ect) on sub game everything should eb available in game.

    Doesn't bother me to be honest, so long as I can still obtain stuff in game thats of equal power (if we are speaking gear wise) then it's all good. Mounts and pets and xp boosts totally fine with me too. So I wouldn't quit no.

    Also, what the heck is with those poll options...

    I don't know. They didn't really make it clear whether it was cash shop or not. Why wouldn't they just say auction house or the black market. Unless they're planning on making some sort of store you can buy stuff in with a new in game currency earned in whatever way they think is good that kind of leaves the cash shop as the last option.

    I just noticed this item requires lv 85.

    I wouldn't quit for something like this. Assuming it even goes live. The blues mentioned this is a potential test for some markets... Anyway, it's not like we have things like this in place already. RAF is a perfect example. People can buy a second account and level quickly, then transfer the toon to their main account. Besides, who cares if it's leveling stuff... It doesn't get in my way anyway.

    Thing is though, you need to think about the future prospects, im largely unhappy that you can buy unobtainable things from the store, but ive let it slide because its only pets, mounts I still disagree with. However XP is affecting the game. The next steps could be on par with GW2's store or worse.

    And ffs when things are announced you dont wait until its in the game to discuss it, you do it beforehand so public opinion and vital changes can affect it.
    So none of this "you cant complain until its fucking with the game" nonsense.

    *shrug* The integrity of the game is generally considered compromised when the possibility exists for richer players to equal or overtake more skilled players in terms of power. I don't think very many, if any, players consider leveling speed to equal meaningful "power" (the kind acquired by skill).

    I don't think Blizzard will cross that line, of allowing money to substitute for skill. Money for cosmetic items or ease of play? They'll probably experiment with that. More revenue streams for them, more options for players.

    You are exactly who this is targeting. OP should've added I enjoy leveling 85-90 like it is to the poll.

    If they add anything that gives advantages in pvp or raiding, then yes, I'd probably be done with the game. Other than that, I don't really mind too much if they add XP boosts, and frivolous items like that.

    Apparently being able to faction change hasn't stopped you from playing since it does give advantages to raiding. Sure you'll get over it just as quickly if they add another pay 2 win feature to the game.
