Finally some beta news! And I don't mind the purchasable level 90 character. I just want a way to also get it early if I physically buy the Collector's Edition.
Personally, I feel this is all great news.
Game is old guys; some of us just want to get to what's relevant and skip the ever increasing legacy material. Those that don't, well, don't! It's optional and not recommended for NEW players (not to be confused with returning/veteran players).
They need to sell level 100's next Xpac. That's where the money will be.
Buying 90 is probaly the main reason I'll give this game another shot.
Leveling is probaly the most boring imagineable thing you could ever do.
On the right path Blizzard! Keep it up!
If people want to level 90s fine it will not stop it. If people want to buy them, also fine, it is their money. Some people like leveling, some people don't. However having a 90 does not mean you know how to play the class. It just means you have a higher level character.
Really in the end, it does not affect my game-play one way or another so I really can't seem to get upset about people being able to toss money Blizzards way.
Kudos to Blizzard they really know how to ease & implement the micro transaction & services onto the game without making a big mess & chaos. It was kind of obvious they will offer that service since the day they announced the lvl boost came with the expansion.
Blizzard... I've always supported everything you have done, but being able to purchase level 90 boosts makes me very angry.
If you look at my account I am about to have 16 level 90 characters... working towards having 22 characters.. 11 from each faction, covering one of each race. This is my goal before WoD. I've been working on leveling all these toons since Vanilla WoW. I've spend hundred and hundreds of dollars with race and faction changes to get my toons on the sames servers and factions. When I get all 11 classes on both Horde and Alliance this will be a great accomplishment that people may find rather impressive for the amount of time that was involved.
However, come the near future as you say... someone with a big pocket book can purchase and achieve what has take me YEARS to accomplish. This to me is a huge sell out, and just another way for the company to make a quick buck. Not to mention a HUGE kick in my private parts. Even if they were $100+ per level 90 character I am still against this feature being added.
Please do not ruin this game.
How do they dish out the beta invites I've been playing for years 8/9 I know that doesn't make anymore of a fan then a newer player. player but it would be nice to be considered for the beta.
Not to QQ but as someone who collects the actual CE boxes I kind of feel a bit second class to the digital CE... couldn't they set up some kind of deal where you get the digital CE online and pick up the physical box from local retailers separately?
