    They don't. They may hate the fact that it's a bought store mount just as much as you, but they just want the pretty mount model they've loved since the moment they first saw the datamined model. They're not your enemies, they're victims of a catch-22 situation. They can buy it, and enjoy their new mount, but some idiots will /spit at them, insult them, raidkick them, guilt-trip them because they DARED use their own money to buy a store mount. If they don't, well, then they don't have the mount that they so badly want. Some people have wanted a chimaera/chimera and bat mount since forever. Don't tell them that buying those means that they're filthy capitalists that feed 'Bli$$ard's greed'.

    I have bought most but not all the mounts they have put in the store simply because

    1. I have a job and I spend my earned money on what I want
    2. I like to treat myself to small things I like every now and then, these mounts come out every now and then for me

    Call me an "idiot" because I don't agree with what others say, tell me the mounts/pets "should be free" or whatever you want. In the end I deem what is worthy of my money and this is one of those things. I would have much rather preferred that this mount be obtained by doing a quest or achievement but I'm not picky. If the player base had any real intention of stopping Blizzard from doing this it would have been done 7 mounts ago, moment we failed at that point there was no chance of stopping this train.

    So they put rockets on a hideous zippleback.....
    Why the fuck are they working on the stupid fey dragon and this pos, when they don't have new character models finished. And they tell us they don't have time to put new models for ALL races before launch. Horseshit.

    Only idiots go to the gym. Buy yourself your own equipment for a lot less and workout whenever you want. Moron.

    It seems to me you fail to understand out business works. If the store doesn't have customers, it shuts down. If people are willing to pay for items at said store, it stays open. Now granted, this is usually because the cost of overhead and whatnot causes the store to close if they can't stay in the black, but in this situation if people don't give them money for resources spent behind another pay wall then they'll stop doing it and said resources SHOULD be spent on the game content we already are paying for.

    Offers Mounts / Pets / Transmog items in an online store for people that want them so the sub fee doesn't have to increase.

    They added the store just so they don't have to increase the sub fee? Okay...I take it back...now I know who the idiot is. ;-)

    Meh, I wanted this to be part of the collector's edition or something, not another 'spend dosh to look posh!' mount.

    The instant and immediate hate on this forum is both hugely amusing and greatly worrying... Amusing because of how ridiculous it is, especially seeing some of the posts and worrying because some of you have no idea what you're talking about...

    The best parts are the cries of "P2W".

    I honestly just don't understand why some of you are still even here. Hell, most of you QQ and still hand your money over to Blizzard. Try speaking with your wallets instead of empty words on a fan forum for a change?

    You do realize probably a good 10% of the playerbase are 14 year old boys, right?

    That said, I think it's f-ing sweet looking, rockets and all. And I'm 36, so take that for what it's worth.

    This really make me sad - I pay for a game and they still want me to pay for best looking mount -_-

    I would not complain if game would be F2P, BUT IS IT NOT!

    I seriously love the people who love to use the if you don't like the blizzard shop just don't buy form it argument like it's the holy grail of excuses for the shop to continue to excist. Now I have an question for those people though.

    What about the people who hate the ingame shop idea but love collecting unique mounts/pets? Cause they are pretty much screwed.

    Apparently I do, because that's the catch-22 I described. Yes, they need customers, but they have customers exactly because many people want the pretty mounts more than they care to protest the Blizzard Store. But you can't blame them for it.

    OP spells at Ashran? Based on faction population? Yes, WODs gonna be the most awesome expansion ever! Propably gonna hit under 4 million sub mark.

    fuck yea pay4pixels !!! i want to to see BIS epic items and legendary weapons from blizzard store too ! lets make all the awesome items obtainable only via irl cash rather than in game accomplishments !

    Some people work for their money, and treat themselves to small luxuries. Don't hate on them for being able to spend money on things they want.

    25 bucks here and there is nothing to someone who's earning something for themselves.

    It's a cool mount, i'd buy it.

  17. #117
    I fell in love with at first glance, still thinking about buying it.

    I've allways thought the store to be an extra to the game, but it isn't different from buying a collector's xpac, for example.

    I regret buying the shitty yellow serpent or whatever. jeez.

    Considering it's a Teen-rated game, they're not far off then...I was 13 when I started playing. I'm 22 now, and I can accept the cheesy trailer knowing it's probably targeted at the younger players. Not worth getting upset over it, it is a vanity item anyhow, I think the trailer served its purpose.
    Being a mount collector, I will eventually buy it, but I don't need it right away (which a lot of people are already bitching about as if you have a gun to your head to purchase it).

    Somehow I suspect it was an error and won't be available till Xpak, although if some people did manage to buy it early, I wonder how Blizzard will handle that.
