Of it. I know I've seen quite a chunk of people that'll play just because of the 90 boost. We may see a sub boost depending how they handle it during a time where wed get sub drops.
I normally don't complain about their store antics, but am i right in saying that brings us up to 3 ingame shop buttons now? I personally don't buy Taepsilum's reasons. I'd imagine the vast majority of players don't use stuff like Bartender or any custom action bars/menu buttons that would hide the shop logo. It's also there at the top of your menu when you go to logout/exit, something no one playing could possibly miss.
It's kind of funny when you think about it. The only other games you'd expect a shop to be labelled everywhere is a free to play game, which last time i checked WoW isn't. Now i've never been against them adding a shop but they are really pushing it hard with the amount of buttons everywhere now for it.

Warriors, euphoria will rise

Oh man... just woke up and couldnt see it right, well its the RoS CE never mind xD
That response about the shop buttons... it's been quite a while since I've seen someone use so many words to say so little.
cant wait to enter the new raids...a npc will run up to you and ask
"hey, before you go inside, would you like to use the shop?"
"uh, no thank you"
at what point will they take a hint that this is getting a bit much?
They add one button to the login screen. The login sceen, where you spend 15 seconds before getting in game. And you'd think the sky was falling.
People. Seriously. Chill... It's a button. Nobody is forcing you to use ANYTHING.
Might as well replace the 'login' button to 'shop'
People just love to qq. And now people are saying a year of Dragon Soul is better then the current endgame? What the hell are you all smoking? Seriously, do yourselves a favour and shut up fo a bit and actually think before motormouthing. Or go for a walk instead.

Are you really going to say Dragon Soul was better then SoO? Really?
What's the point of adding shop buttons and shop items if we can't get into the game because the login servers are crap?
Hopefully they put a shop button in the middle of the screen, we also need tons of in-game ads.
Now you can buy and create a 90 right away.
The one in the micro menu can be hidden via addon. I have a little addon that eliminates it and brings the help icon back.
The one in the ESC menu is the truly useless one, that one is there so people that do have addons get reminded there's a shop.
Now we can argue about the ridiculous golden border (I bet it'll blink or flash when they're done with it).
Or we can argue about the moronic fact that the buttons are still there (greyed out) when I disable the shop in my parental controls.
These 2 actually bother me.
Oh and did you know they already have the tech to make ingame popups possible? I wonder how long it'll take for us to need a ShopBlockPlus addon... >.<

My God, what a horrible creation. People seeing what they want? Thank God they tried to shy away from that. I know it pisses me off when I'm in an heroic raid, yet in the back of my head all I can think is 'some casual player is playing a heroic dungeon and not wiping.' -Vodkarn
