Because a car is not good enough?
My weekly podcast can be downloaded here this week a bad experience at an EB games store poses the question is the customer always right?
Also, I can't fully tell if you're trolling with the last sentence of your post. Who cares if it has "ekstra features"? How much time are you honestly spending on your mount that you have to complain about the unique things that it does? I think that's something that you should be looking into instead.
Even though I read posts like this and think, "Wow. That joker is a drama queen." I do believe his/her underlying point is valid.
It is kind of crappy that every time Blizzard has been showing off these UNIQUE mounts, they ALWAYS end up something they want to charge $25 for.
I love this game. But that kind of marketing makes me love it less. It makes the game common and it is starting to feel like I do when I walk into a high pressure electronics store where there are gaudy banners and signs plastered everywhere. Then you buy something and later hate yourself and the store.
Blizzard has some schizoid leadership right now- on one hand we see people like Watcher with passion about the game, bringing back lots of 5 mans- then we have this other side of scum bag salesmen who could care less if we have dumped a few thousands into the game over the years.
It is the difference between being a good company that people somewhat like but mostly put up with because of what they sale and that legendary excellent company that actually loves it's customer base. There are companies like that. But the bigger a company gets, the harder it is to keep that simple idea strong.
