    At least they don't look very good - they stand out way too much with our normal rubbish looking armour, can imagine everyone running around looking like clowns in a few years time >.<

    Come on people, what's all this QQ about? All the items in the online store are vanity items that don't effect your game play or character stats in anyway. Unless WoW goes f2p, the items in the store will be always vanity items. You don't like it, unsubscribe... oh wait you are too addicted to this game.

    There is a ton of fear in this thread, and it is justified. It's a very slippery slope. For right now everything is fine, a few transmog items and toys are fine, but it cannot go further. The second we start seeing content or gear on there while still paying a sub is when we should see a mass exodus. I'm not talking about expansions here, games have always charged for expansions, I mean things like the new raid costing money or something. In the meantime though I'm not going to go overboard and react to the fear of what may happen. I'm just going to keep playing and keep subbing as I have for more than 5 years.

    No point in freaking out about where this could lead before it actually goes there.

    The first step of the fall of WoW. Blizzard are losing a lot of money, and starting to fall in the pit of F2P with ingame store. This is the beginning of the end.

    This. QFT.

    Reading comprehension. It's not about whether these items provide an in-game benefit or not(they obviously don't/won't), it's about the fact that more and more cosmetic items will be made with the store in mind.

    What does WoW's monthly fee pay for? Servers? Yes of course. Maintenance? Yes of course. Constant flow of new content? Yes of course. So why after almost nine years am I forced to pay more real currency on top of the monthly fee I am already paying just to get a new item I like?
    Pick your poison Blizzard. Either charge people a monthly fee for the things I listed above or change the model to F2P with microtransactions.

    Fucking BS then add all thise things. So they added The sad man Invinsible. AND they will not add all the great looking items to transmaq items to the in game store. Fucking nice blizzard, If we pay a fee each mouth, we should be able to earn all the items you just OUR money on

There is a reason this game is so widely played after nearly ten years, it's very polished and has unmatched support. In fact it wouldn't be decimated, it just wouldn't exist. The game cannot live off F2P with a few things in a shop for micro-transactions. It's too late for that now. And if you all think they have all that money from all those years just sitting in an account, then again, you are not looking at this properly. The money has largely been re-injected to sustain the interest and keep the going with outlandish figures which it boasts even today.

    F2P would see about 90% of their team lose their jobs and if you think Blizzard have lost their way with the game of late (which I do but I think they will make up for it with next expansion) then you have seen nothing yet. Mounts, pets, faction changes, race change, name change have been there for years and perhaps there was uproar at first, but they are accepted and another avenue to make revenue, just as these new things will be accepted and part of the game. I don't sub by the way as I don't like the game at the moment (not a fan of MOP) but I am not against any of these new announcements. It's par for the course and certainly not the frankly ridiculous 'pay2win' notion people are wildly throwing around without it seems, even thinking about what that would entail.

    If you love the game, trust me, you do NOT want F2p as that is nails in the coffin, F2P is where MMOs go to die. If your reply to that is GW2, then you have no idea of the difference in size of the teams, it's like comparing a convenience corner store to an international chain store.
    Ahahah!

    Sorry, but seriously, the only one who has no idea here it's you.
    Did you ever actually open one of the Activision Blizzard semester reports? Do you know how pityful is the cost of server maintenance and support team compared to the volume of incomes provided by their players? Do you have any idea how big is GW2? You know that in US and EU it sold just little less copies than MoP? Do you know how many server they manage and how many people work on new content?

    No, you have really no idea. What strikes me, is how you lecture people about their lack of knowledge. Truly fantastic...

    What would worry me the most is that if the New Character models will be seperate buyable. Imagine that something we've been waiting for years to get the message if u want the new char models u will have to pay extra!
    Why?

    Who let the dog's out?! Whooo!!!

    Is there another way to get that item he likes? There isn't, therefor he is forced to pay if he wants that item.

    This is about saving the 'best' designs for the store and making the same old bland tier 16. So when money is involded they suddenly CAN design something colourful? Totaly unacceptable for a 13 euro sub game.

    It's not about the money. It's about them being there in the first place. It's already shown with pets/mounts on the shop compared with ones in game. In the shop you have a golden winged sparkling flying heart of the aspect mount. In game you have a reworked gryphon. In the shop you have a unique mini elemental lord that can be used as a campfire or a ancient sapling that changes colour/ appearance to match the season. In game you have tito...

    This is the reward for collecting all the raid pets.



    this is an ingame pet shop item.

    The way this announcement is worded, I can tell they're doing their very best to sugarcoat the whole thing. Awful stuff.

    A subscription and a (growing, evidently) cash shop. Blizzard thinks they can have their cake and eat it too. Cancelled my subscription.

    In game you also have much cooler mounts, both land and air.

    What someone's forcing you to buy them? If those had stats, I'd sort of agree, but it's purely cosmetic.

  20. #540
    OMG YES! YES ! TRANGSMOG FOREVER I CANT WAIT WE NEED MORE STUFF LIKE THIS! YES!

    Will buy all of them as a surprise for my buddys :

    And at all those haters: No one forces you to buy it, stop QQ please
