    You serious or trolling?

    You chose a different path.
    But lets say, you really enjoy the food at this restaurant that charges for condiments, you just don't approve of them charging for them. If you let them know this, maybe they will change it and you will have no qualms about still eating there and giving them your money.

    LOL I'm so glad I quit the game. 100+ pages about buying an ingame item that doesnt have a darn thing to do with anyone else in the game and does NOT alter the characters, or anyone elses playablility in any way or form.

    I had Kindergarten Playground Battle Tactics that made more sense than this.

    You don't approve of buying tings in a store? Fine, THEN DON'T BUY IT. Plain and simple. Society nowadays seem to think that whatever "offends" them needs to be carved in the skull of everyone else. For example. Im Athiest, my wife is Christian. I let her pray at the table but she knows better than to ask me to. I'll remain silent out of respect to her. I've been to her Baptism cause it was important to her. I thought the whole thing was a freakin joke.....but I went...out of respect to her.

    Point is, if you don't like it, move on and let the ones who do enjoy it....enjoy it. Anywho I'm going back to play some more Arkham City where I don't have to worry about the kiddies being offended by what I bought...

    No. No. The Forums are the appropriate means but there has been no feedback as of late from anyone at Blizzard other than closing other threads and redirecting people to the main thread. The other way is to close your account (which a few people have done) and write a nice letter to them explaining why.

    BUT! Most people want to continue to play this game, so they fight it out (still) on the forums and now in game. Where they will boycott players that are buying these items. That is NOT immature. There is no other means for players that are being ignored by the company and that company not engaging in any dialogue. What else is supposed to happen? The only other way is to make a commotion, to create a stir. Do you think it would be this bad if Blizzard had come out and tried to make a dialogue? Who knows, maybe yes, maybe no.

    There is no intolerance. You are simply using words so common nowadays to create an imaginary emotion conjured up by you want to make those people out who DO have an issue with this as the "bad" guy. It isn't going to work.

    So based on that analogy, there are a lot of people in this thread who would condone spitting in the food of anyone who paid extra for condiments. Yeah, standup citizens right there sticking it to the man.

    More like Blizzard giving you the option to purchase a fancy drink coaster for $15 made out of solid gold. I don't need it, it's useless, but I want it just to rub it in people's faces.

    Because I have a lot of money and not a donating bone in my body, I'll buy whatever I want.

    Pfft. Genuine LFR trolls are already very good at preventing kicks since triggering combat and not letting it end is trivial. It can take a half an hour to kick a real disruptive troll if they do it right.

I'm sure the psychopathic suits at EA would approve of this existence, and the gaming industry will just keep getting worse and worse thanks to companies like these.

    Anyway, this whole thing is saddening, and it sucks how the community is getting divided because of it, but what where they expecting when they implemented such a shop into a Pay to Play game? It will keep getting worse as they are adding new things, the stigma will keep growing.
    I applaud this post. Very well thought out.

    Lemme guess, your parents still pay your subscription fee right? 'Cause that's the only reason I see for posting a comment as ludicrously ignorant as this. Some people work hard for their cash, and who fucking cares if they spend it on pretty pixels that aren't affecting anybody at all? If I wanted to spend my dough on cutesy shit (which I don't, by the by, the by) then that is my prerogative. It's not like I'm paying to have some sort of advantage over everybody else.

    I dunno, maybe you think micro-transactions for cosmetic items is the gateway to pay2win or something? Well that's what people said four years ago when the pet store opened up. There's no way to know for certain if that will ever happen, and if it does you've got full rights to protest that. However; thinking it's okay to screw other people over because you- in your opinion- believe that people who spend money on harmless luxuries are wrong, is ignorant, unjustified and morally sideways.

    Then picket. And tell people entering and leaving why you care. And then leave them alone. If you're really really put out, give up on the restaurant.

    They sell those pets to NO ONE now, not everyone 24/7, limited to those that could find it

    know what though? i assume you're the type that will say change with the times or be left behind, then maybe the blizzard vp never should've said what he did in 2008

    of course this is a discussion forum, if every thread said "vote with your wallet, not your opinion" no threads would exist

    This has gotten ridiculous after 124 pages with the back and forth insults and general rudeness.
