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

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.
in vanillia wow there was no limitless digital collectors edition, that was limited to the amount of people who could get ahold of the physical boxed copy
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
