Even F2P games don't sink so low to force ppl to pay a sub to log into a game to use items you bought for real money.
There is not a single game in a twisted and unprofessional game industry that dares to sink this low.... But Blizzard is ready to.
One thing really blows my mind here. The apologisism of the fanbase in mmo-champion towards Blizzards decisions is appaling.
I knew it was a good chunk of fanboyism on this site, but this is exceptionally apparent.
once they start get this going, i hope they add racial armor to it. they have had the chance to add it to city quartermasters, but they haven't. so this would be perfect. night elf sentinel gear, stormwind infantry gear, orgrimmar grunt gear, all the good stuff.
Maaan...fuck the haters
i am a loyal customer and i will support blizzard as much as i can until the end of days because blizzard is and will be forever the best gaming company EVER.
and i will buy all of them them for all my chars and buddys!
no one forces you to buy this!!! !

And note. NONE of the F2P games restricts their users from then USING those items whenever they want. The consumer is not FORCED to pay sub to be able to log on. Thats a big difference here. These games don't show their disrespect to paying consumers.
The items in Blizzard Webstore have always be on a very grey area when it comes to this. Thats probably why Blizzard started this "service" on their website. That way it worked more like the trading card game and deluxe or collector edition. It was still shamefull in my eyes ... but not to the same degree as we see now if they add an ingame cash shop. Thats a line that NO game should cross. And Im not even sure its legal to charge a person for a digital item and then add sub for it so they can use it. And even if its legal - its very unethical that no game has done EVER before.
well those models look cool (wont buy them) heh if wow wont turn into SIMS and ppl wantt o spen money on thsoe its all ok
In terms of cost per user.... They are probably getting BETTER deals now than what they had at launch of WOW since bandwith has been costing less over the last few years. And with the game 2 million players fewer than 2 years ago.... they can restrict the need for power use and space. Its not like they are changing hardware every patch...

Thats something that NOT A SINGLE store in the world does. And thats why this is NOT like every other merchandising
