    Blizzard Black Friday

    Again more special deals for new comers, once again nothing for current loyal subscribers

    In the almost decade Ive played world of warcraft I have never seen any decent deals to reward loyal players for a change..

    How bout some discount on actual game time blizzard? 50% on a month or something....

    Ive seen discount on ingame services before but that would be nice to see again too.


    Fuckin selling WOW retail for £5, yeah amazing. I mean its 9 years old, if someone hasnt already bought WOW in 9 years Its pretty clear they dont too

    Take it as an opportunity to grab Refer-a-Friend for cheap(er). You can get a pet/mount and fast leveling of any 2 or more toons you want. Also, keep in mind today is still Wednesday, so your point is moot for 48 more hours.

    opportunity? some people prefer to play 1 character and focus on that 1 character. not giving the company extra money for an excuse to have more characters or silly pets and mounts.
    subscription is mandatory. thats enough

    Would certainly be nice to see those in-game service prices drop.

    I second this thought.
    Sometimes you just have to stop healing some people to prove a point, if they don't listen, it's really their own fault :P

    Yeah, I definitely agree there, especially for accounts that have been open a long time. I've always felt that you should get a free faction change/realm change/re customization for a year of uninterrupted subscription. That doesn't seem like asking for too much, and would help with this nasty greed image Blizzard has been slowly acquiring.
    I've seen what's over the mountain, and you don't have anything to be dancing about.

    True, lol, I mean a race change is basically half the price of a new game (not wow).

    I very much agree.

    No, instead the anniversary reward is some lame fireworks and a stupid pet in your mailbox...

    Yeah, Blizzard thought too that such rewards are lame, hence why they gave a 9% XP boost for this year's reward.

    Im thinking about comming back to WoW when WoD hits, but want to save as much as I can. I've got a question. If I buy WoW battlechest + MoP when black friday comes, will I be able to get a free 90 when WoW comes? I dont want to play WoW now, I want to play it when WoD comes, so if I need to hold my serial keys which i get and not activate it or what should I do?

    You get the 90 by purchasing the new xpac, it won't matter when you buy the battlechest + MoP.

    Sorry, before you ask, you will only get the 90 AFTER the xpac launches, so even if you pre-ordered you'd have to wait 'til launch day.

    These days something like 300,000 people are born every day (and quite a few die as well), and that means today, even with various factors such as region, demographics, yadda yadda, they have a ton of new customers that they could gain.

    You already own a product but you're complaining about black Friday? If I have a stove that I bought in June, the same stove being on sale Friday doesn't make my stove any less useful. I don't expect to get some stove bonus.

    This is one reason my guild is sick with blizzard and is quitting in feb. The x-pac did not make it worth staying. 6.1 flying on a pve sever go f yourselves.

    Yeah seriously, most of us have been playing since vanilla and we should get some kind of long-time-costumer discount at least once a year. Maybe a 50% discount on sub or free character/race change would be nice.

    Wow, you really are reaching for something to cry about. Yeah, it might be nice to be able to get a month for 50% off but financially it would hurt Blizz far too much. Likewise a sale on pets/mounts isn't all that appealing. They're not required to even do a sale on black Friday. Stop being so entitled and enjoy the game. If you can't do that then you should find a game you can enjoy.

    A sale on character services already happened earlier this year. Any true loyal long-time Blizz fan would recognize that and appreciate that they already got their sale.
