    No, I kick people for being assholes and affecting the enjoyment of the game for other people and no other reason. Someone spending their own money to have cosmetic gear or mounts has no affect on me.

    If dungeons were relevant content, I would absolutely kick someone for performing poorly (i.e, causing us to wipe). Not for using the cash shop, though. That's just the rage of a 12 year old who can't get ahold of mommies credit card.

    People need to start realizing that every game is pay to win. Yes, every game is pay to win. Example - monitor. If you have more money you have a nice, wide monitor, if you don't have money you can as well be using the old box monitor.

    The guy with the wider monitor clearly has an advantage, so stfu and stop complaining.

    Why are people so pissy about the thread? Are we allowed only one kind of each thread? You bitch about seeing it a hundred times but this is my first time seeing a thread like this and I come here daily. You play WoW. Do you get pissed off about seeing a WoW ad on a random website because you already play WoW?

    To answer the question: I am not childish enough to kick someone over super petty things like a helmet I don't like. Ohh sorry you're a bad person because you choose to spend your money on something that isn't about ME ME ME ME! Baddie. Trying to play the game how you desire.

    Kicking someone for buying stuff off the cash shop just cries jealousy, envy and poverty.

    Awesome signature by Toraah - thank you very much!

    Almost took you seriously!

    But yeah, I think I said earlier in this thread or another one; I kick people because they are being too much of a jack off. There isn't much reason to kick people unless they disrupt the run entirely. As I would rather have an asshole who can't keep his mouth shut and runs the dungeon in 15 minutes, over a slow ass tank who couldn't do it in an hour. It's not really memorable or enjoyable content, so I couldn't really give a rats ass unless they stopped the progression. Almost.
    Hearts are man kinds lock. If only everyone's emotions were a skeleton key, this world would be a happier place.

    Exactly. I can't beat my cousin at Call of Duty because I haven't paid for my copy of Call of Duty yet. He's clearly winning.

    this this this

    As a part of the pre-expansion launch event, reaching the end of the Siege of Orgrimmar raid will now display: “Thank you! But our Garrosh is in another castle.”

To tell this player that if he wants to experience the full content of the game that he would have dip even further into his wallet, is something that I would consider morally ambiguous.
    My average is about 20 cents per hour. That's about the same mileage I've gotten out of Skyrim. It's perfectly fine. The difference is that you have to put hours into the game to make it cost efficient... which isn't really that big a deal anyway because if you're paying for the sub chances are you're doing it to put a good amount of time into it.

    It's expensive when you look at the totals but honestly gaming in general has been a very expensive hobby up until relatively recently on the PC side of things.

    Looking at hours of gameplay per dollar I think is the only logical way of looking at a game and determining whether or not it's a good choice. Is that 1400 being spent efficiently? That's the grand question. If you play an hour a week, no, it's not. If you play an hour a day, that's actually pretty good. Play for three+? That's better than most AAA games nowadays.
