    All the biased players who jump on the latest bandwagon make me sick.
    There have been suggestions, and pretty good ones at that suggesting our regions might not be the target for that.
    Internet Café's which work on a pay per hour method sound like a very feasible target for that.

    Also how is extra experience an unfair PvE or PvP advantage ?
    Answer, it is not.

    If i can pay 5 Euro for 100% exp buff id buy that for my alts, so sick of 85-90 >.<
    I think I would be ok with just a one time small purchase that mails a flask of xp every time you make a new toon like how mounts and pets use to be. It does annoy me a little since we are paying a sub fee on top of that already. I don't know why they just wouldn't have a valued customer type of thing where we get little things like this the longer we're subbed like planetside 2 has already.

    I would quite like a "long-timer subscriber perks" package, but it bears noting that extra fees on top of the subscription fee is nothing new. Server transfers, name changes, character re-customizations, faction changes have all cost separate fees. There's nothing unethical (not that you said it was unethical, but the term has been used by others) about subscription for access to the content and other services that aren't covered by the subscription. None of those other services are necessary to enjoy the content, which is the key, IMO.

    Same here. Pretty lopsided poll, not sure it's really designed to come out with any answer different than the OP wanted to get.

    On topic though, I agree about an in-game store. It's a premium service, people are buying convenience.

    I see it as a great way to put hackers and such out of business, always a good thing to protect our accounts and get them out of our hair.

    So no, I wouldn't quit. Technically I couldn't quit since I'm already unsubbed and probably will continue to be if the next expansion is Burning Legion again. But if I did decide not to return, it wouldn't be because of an in-game store.

    Do not like what I am seeing. I came to WoW from free-to-play micro-transaction games, having found them cheapened with no real sense of achievement (yes, even for EXP gains). I think the subscription model's way more fair to everyone and levels the playing ground, so to speak.

    It's a step in a very dangerous direction, Blizzard. And yes, I would seriously consider quitting because it's a sneak peak of things to come the player base's way.

    As long as it doesn't become "buy to win" I don't really care.

    I have no problem if they wanna sell xp boosts or transmog gear. That's perfectly fine with me, leveling is retarded easy anyway, just a long boring process, if they sold double xp things for like $5 a pop that would be pretty smart really. And transmog gear has no effect on anything.

    They will never start selling real gear or mats for professions or anything like that, not worried about it at all.

    They were pretty obvious when they said "certain regions." I can almost guarantee this is for the Asian market where f2p is much bigger than p2p.

    This poll is rather poorly put together. My ideal option would be "No, I wouldn't care in the least." Including that I would only pay for my $15 sub only.

    I reckon if there is a cash shop it'll have transmog items, and I hope they're trade-able in-game like TERA has.

    If they put transmog gear in the cash shop but gave them the Guardian Cub treatment, where it could be sold in-game for gold, that would be great IMO. Then I could use gold rather than real money to get the stuff if I liked it.

    Grats OP, you just won the "Most Useless Poll Made on MMO-C Ever!!" award.

    Surprised this poll took as long as it did, the day you pay to win in max level raids is the day i quit... until then it doesn't affect me, almost all my toons are max level.

    Pfft, it takes 2 weeks to go 1-90. If you wanna spend extra to make it even faster good for you. But it means you're lazy, bad and stupid if you do.

    Anything in the cash shop that gives players a direct advantage over others (or over the content) is the day to pack it in. It's bad enough that it's already indirectly happened with the cub pet back in cata.

    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.
    Something being datamined from a PTR build isn't anywhere close to an announcement.

    The vast majority of datamined projects end up in the game. Im not willing to play my cards here, and regardless, you should be showing your opinion anyway.

    With all this cash shop tomfoolery... WoW going F2P/B2P next expac confirmed? :3

    Personally, I would probably come back to WoW if they loosened up the payment model a bit, and if they implemented a GW2 gems-for-gold style system, it'd probably end up working in their favor. I recall some statistics indicating that people pay, on average, $30 a month on a F2P MMO.
    If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.
