Personally I have given up, this the way they want to run the game then so be it.
Hope for the best I suppose, that the game doesn't implode like Diablo 3 and its RMAH.
On the bright side, it increases the possibility of player housing. The opportunity to sell furnishings on the store is way too good for them to pass up IMHO.

This is great. These people need to be shunned for supporting bad business. Positive reinforcement will only lead to more exploitation by Blizz through their un-necessary cash shop. Both the cash shop and these players need to be boycotted and shown we will not support this garbage.
Fine, a large majority of the asian region players are fine with this, especially those where there playtime levels are restricted.
Even more so in areas where the amount of playtime purchased in a certain time-frame is restricted, it does nothing but improve the game for them.

The instant that a micro transaction gives even 1 extra DPS, HPS, or EHP, I will be the first person to get out a pitchfork and condemn Blizzard. I don't have a problem with the helm microtransactions AT ALL. It's fucking cosmetic; get over it and don't kick people from your raids over nothing.
If Goku's power level increases at the same rate till the end of DBGT as it does till the end of the Frieza saga, as a SS4 Goku would have a PL of roughly 939 Quinoctogintillion. For reference that is a 260 digit number. A PL of 14,600 is required to destroy an earth sized planet. There are about 2 nonillion earths worth of mass in the universe. That means SS4 Goku can destroy the universe about 32 Octosexagintillion times over. There's a reason they made Goku a god at the end of GT.
I can understand what people in the asia region are saying, instead of being a pillock and cherry-picking parts of posts to reply to actually read the posts themselves instead of being a window licker.
i have explained several times, why the micro-transactions work in the asia region why people want them and why the wont come to western servers.
I have seen people kicked from 5 mans and LFR for numerous things over the years, some deserved and others that make you wonder WTF people are smoking.
Priest healer got kicked from a 5man because she had a vanity pet out. One available to Horde only unless you use the neutral AH to buy it.
Warrior kicked from LFR because he had his 2H sword mogged to look like the PVP one.
Warlock kicked from a 5 man for using lifetap, but was self healing and never asked for a heal.
Hunter kicked from a 5man for kiting a mob to death that the tank died to. Tank wanted us to wipe instead of making him wait.
I got kicked from a 5 man on my Mage because i wasn't sheeping mobs. Now this was one of those instances where the mobs were completely immune to polymorph so i couldn't sheep at all. Linked poly in chat, got called a noob and was kicked. Best of all it was some cunt from my realm who had the nerve to start on me in trade after the run. His GM was on an alt at the time and saw him acting like a total fuckwad, so he got on his main, kicked him out of the guild and apologized to me IN TRADE where everyone could see.
Some people are just fuckwits who like to have a modicum of power over others because of their own short comings, be it IRL or in game.
