    Gotta love Blizzards humour!

    This isn't a QQ thread btw

    I LOLed when I saw the 9th Anniversary gift. Obviously Blizzard knew folk would QQ regardless so they offered a tissue in the form of a limited exp boost! Personally I don't really know what folk expected considering the past years... Yes they did offer us 3 pets before but that was during the honeymoon period,

    They probably don't even think about it at all, it's certain that they didn't last year

    A pet given away free is $$$$'s lost in the Blizzard Store.

    This is the same thing they gave out the last 2 years. Except the 7th year one was 7% exp and the 8th was 8%.

    ye I made a pose earlier showing what blizz is giving compared to other likewise mmos/games who at least put some thought into it.

    what makes me sad is people blindly accept this without a second thought

    I have 100% no use for the thing so it was wasted for me.

    It makes you sad that people blindly accept a free gift without complaining about it? Please identify which European country you're from before someone else assigns you to the US and the country bashing starts.

    Honestly, if they can't come up with something HUGE for year 10 then I'm gonna be pretty upset. Listen, I know the players four years ago ruined the anniversary fun by crying "OMG REHASHED CONTENT", but now each anniversary really IS rehashed content. If they're trying to prove a point, I hope people get it by now.

    Year ten should be something real and something fun. Fingers crossed.

    I couldn't care less about any of the anniversary achievements, pets etc etc. What I would like is some sort of event a bit like the holiday events (brewfest etc etc) that relates to the anniversary. A dungeon boss to do, achievements to farm, maybe a pet and mount from the event as rewards. Handing crap to me in a mail box for logging in during certain days is lame, handing out epics/transmog gear for it is even worse.

    Oh thats cool that you have every rep in the game at exlated. Jealous of your insane title '-'

    Anyway, again Blizzard has already made it clear they felt that pets and stuff each year was a bit much, but would be doing something special for major ones IE year 10.

    Next year if its a 10% one? Yea okay, I'll be mad. But they said they wouldnt be doing stuff for most years and have followed that statement.

    The biggest game in the world doesn't even offer "loyalty" rewards for subscribing like most of the other smaller games do.

    They have rehashed the same "anniversary gift" 4 years in a row. Some years they even sent the same letter as the year before.

    I think it's pretty apparent they don't give a fuck anymore. We should all stop crying about it.

    Why make a new thread and not just make this post in the thread already about the gift?
