    Why don't you just leave the instance if it has people in it with the helmets? You'll get another in 20 minutes. Simple.

    People being mad because I have disposable income and can spend it on things I find aesthetically pleasing, and they can't/won't out of arrogance/pride.

I think we can safely say that BLizzard tried their very best to keep this under wrap and as low profile as possible.
    I honestly think that is partly why players who disapprove of this are as angry as they are and why they are taking measures like the ones stated in this thread. In the past, it always felt like when disapproval was so large Blizzard would listen (like Real ID on the forums), but in this instance it was just shameful to watch how they handled this situation.

    The only way you can protest in the game is canceling subscription and not playing the game. Sadly not enough will do this and blizzard will continue to add items to the cash shop endless.

    Stat gear is inevitable. It will start of with low quality armor,their excuse will be that the armor is worst then dungeon armor and it's sold to help alts get into dungeons faster.

    However, the principle stays the same.


    Just like people call BS as long as nobody provides a single screenshot of a kick solely because of someone wearing the helmet.
    Fact

    If the people in your party don't commonly kick others, and have the ability to come to a general consensus, they can kick you for no reason(if they really wanted). But, that will impact their ability to kick others in the future. My guess is that you happened upon multiple groups that don't commonly kick, and you gave them a reason to do so.

    While I don't normally condone violence, this did make me chuckle.

    It's not harassment to vote kick.

    Only when you start repeated name calling and whispering ill will is it considered harassment...... and even then you have the ignore function.

    I personally have done that, but I don't think other players should have to quit the game because they don't approve of business practices by Blizzard, shunning people with the helm is I guess their way of protesting it without having to leave a game they still enjoy.

    Everyone always has a choice what they do. I can not decide how everyone else will behave... even if you think you can. Just pointed out that if ppl dont want to be kicked for wearing the store helmet... then just hide helmet and problem solved. Nothing wrong with that.

    What violence? I just had some severe difficulty closing my car door, because his head was accidentally in the way. I kept trying though, because if at first you don't succeed... try try again.

People can say "Cancel your subscription" while I agree it helps, but what if Blizzard just introduces more items to the shop to make the difference? You "voting with your wallet" successfully did nothing.
    If it were this big of a problem, you and everyone else against it refusing to group with people by leaving if you get grouped with them sends a more powerful, not to mention more mature message, that will more likely be taken seriously. As it stands, you're trying to bully people into forcing a company to change its tactics. Not only is that not going to work, because they aren't going to respond because you've thrown this safely into the realm of misconduct instead of it making a statement, but you now have blizzard AND the playerbase that you're slowly polarizing against you, both seeing you as people that can't express themselves without resorting to childish measures. That will guarantee they don't take you seriously.

    Only way someone gets kicked is if the majority wants them gone

    I didn't deny that you can kick someone because of it - but I think that it actually doesn't happen; at least not very often.

    100 pages ago people asked for a screenshot showing such a kick. Nobody posted one yet.
    Obviously, if someone posts stuff like 'You poor?' it's a different story. But solely because someone wears such a helm? In this regard, I call BS.

    Because now it is ethical to kick someone for a LFR for buying a transmog helmet, to discriminate them for their cosmetic tastes? It is a huge attack against their rights; you are discriminating them for their looks. You don't like it? Fine. That does not give you the right to exclude someone from a group because they do not agree with your opinion. And that still stands whatever the majority says. They are human just like you, so both of you can join and finish a LFR without being kicked for no apparent reason.

    In LFD that may be true, but not in LFR.

    Yeah, envy is absolutely a problem in today's society. I think that's part of why people feel so strongly about this, though, is because WoW is kind of a "escape" from the real-world for a lot of people, but with microtransactions, it's now putting your real finances as a direct indicator of what content you'll be able to access. Basically, I fully respect people who work hard and make a lot of money for it, but they already reap the benefits of that money in real-life; I'd prefer we leave video-games as an indicator of your in-game work ethic.

    Vanity items are usually gifts.

    Telling somebody using a gift that their gift sucks because you don't have one makes you a bad person.
