A lot of talk here regarding the free 90 with WoD purchase and how it's a "slippery slope" (a term used literally every expansion since vanilla, lols) and "pay to win". I genuinely fail to see how this is pay to win in any shape or form.
Pay to win would be the gear that makes your character great. The gear that makes your character..win? How many rated BG's have YOU won with a fresh 90 in sub 500 ilvl gear that you have no idea how to play? How many WoL rankings have YOU gotten with a fresh 90 in sub 500 ilvl gear that you have no idea how to play?
You're getting a level 90 character with awful gear. You're not winning much of anything, and will probably die trying to kill Gulp Frogs on the Timeless Isle. So how exactly are you paying to win? What exactly are you winning? There is no aspect in this game in which you are going to dominate anything with a free 90 boost, unless you put your own effort into the character post boost. That means..you didn't pay to win anything..
Nothing. You're winning nothing.
