It's not like it's level 100 sheesh. Chill out people.

I assume that every single person in this thread protesting the new service is also against RAF? It's the same concept, all that differs are the numbers.
(No, RAF isn't different because "you still have to play"; the time is so short that it's meaningless.)
While I don't personally enjoy the idea of "easy" 90s, if it bolsters wayward subscriber numbers (climbing playerbase) I'm supportive. Eventually WoD will come out, and I suspect the time sink to 100, in addition to the garrisons and "different" end game environment, will be enough of a commitment where they're really just saving you (what? 30 hours or so when the MoP nerfs come?) leveling time. The interesting part will be the price point they decide to put on it. I'll bet in the neighborhood of 20-25 bucks.
Additionally, Cata's high amount of low-level content was not an active disincentive. It may have been a bad decision, sure, but any loss was an opportunity loss; they could have spent those developer resources enhancing the 80-85+ content. If they sell level 90s, then they actively don't want to make new low-level content, or make the levelling game easier, because it could potentially lose them money from people buying level 90s.
If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.
They did mention a tutorial where new players would learn, but let's assume that doesn't happen for the moment. Worst case scenario: You get a level 90 with all of their abilities thrown at you at once. It doesn't take that much brainpower to figure out what abilities do what, and you STILL have from level 90-100 to use them before you even start raiding. Bad players are going to be bad no matter what, good players don't need to learn everything one ability at a time.
Have you never done any of the beta tests? We've tested raids with maxed level template characters, and we didn't suck because we didn't level with them. Take a couple minutes and look at your abilities, it's not hard to figure out.
The people complaining about these things the past few weeks have been amazing me. Do you complain about the game, or just everything in general about life? Holy cow it's really not that big of a deal not to purchase a work around past leveling to 90. When they allow gear to be purchased that exceeds Flex, start complaining, until then worry about things that actually effect you.

because 1 character to level 90 totally means that the game is being dumbed down. no one that uses this feature will be good at their class, or ever learn to be good.
also, it's not level 100, so who gives a fuck.
people take this game way too seriously. settle the fuck down already. wow is not life. whether you want to believe it to be.
There really isn't a discussion here. You all know it isn't right. I'm just waiting for the next Vanilla/BC WoW.
Vanilla/BC WoW would fail hardcore, and I'm always grateful Blizzard doesn't listen to nostalgic fools who want to implement changes that ruin the game. And I even played during Vanilla.
Doomsdayers are once again throwing a fit over nothing and will be proven the alarmists that they are. As they always have been.
Yep, never ever. We will forever be baddies that can't figure out our spells... that 1-90 experience is just too valuable!
Also, we must make sure that if Blizzard ever decides to change any of our classes, like they did to Paladin countless times already, we MUST delete that character and start that valuable leveling experience again... because you know, you need it to learn!
Who cares if they let you get your 90's early or if you can buy max level chars. Don't give me the crap about "well they should learn their class by leveling" Oh yeah because that works so well and we have no bad players right? I could care less if people buy a max level and tbh i really dont care if they buy gear which i really doubt blizzard would do other then maybe outdated gear and lfr quality. I will gladly take my free 90 for buying the xpac so i can have one of a class i already have leveled on the other faction. I have grown tired of leveling 1-90 and really dont mind skipping it. I play the game for End game and PVP not leveling as that part of the game besides new xpacs has long since become boring to me.
Also i cant see how you can tie this into well they will prob sell gear next. I for one have seen paying for a max level as a option since wrath but do to cata i thought they could be fine holding it off for a bit like they have. Also they have said they are looking into the possibility of selling max level upgrades but have yet to make up their mind.
You'd be better pressed to go to the thread where Bashiok posted. On the forums in a constructive way. Let them know your concerns if you are truly worried. Yes they see this place but better the official forums see your concerns then here. IMO.
