We can still level without paying $60 btw
Lazy people wanted to buy free characters.
Now they are upset that its not for freeeeeeee. Oh yea.
Keep it constructive
Assuming that anyone who disagrees with how you see it is a " Blizzard Fanboi, blinded by devotion to corporation with no ability to think on their own is an egocentric view that ironically requires the same type of misguided devotion to a principle that a "Fanboi" requires to arrive at their conclusion.
We're all stocked up here on the haters and the fanbois, Palooka. How about you let the rest of us do the heavy lifting here and own our viewpoints on merit rather than trudging through here and knocking everything off the shelves because people don't see it your way. Reasoning with that type of person is actually what's "futile."
Blindingly defending Blizzard; ignorantly trashing Blizzard. Both require an emotional investment that I'm unwilling to give. I'll take reason, logic, facts, and the willingness to accept that I may be wrong. At the end of the day I'll have nothing to account for and I may even have learned something.
There is no possible justification to have a in-game service be so expensive, but then again... it's exacty the same that we can say about anu pet, mount or service that is present in the shop... so... is somehow expected. Also, from a business point of view all those services and expensive items really work for them, so... why change?
The price for me should be no more than 30€ with a little extra if you want to take advantage of the veteran reward, like 5-10€.
I paid us$250 for a level 60 character in Vanilla from a friend who quit - I got his box, CD's, serial from him.
I once had 5 WoW accounts running consecutively, so us$60 is not a lot for a one-time boost.
Hell, I make a helluva lot more than that in an hour.
60 dollars is fair. Also the main reason they are putting this service out there is because if they did not then people would be buying accounts just for the free 90 to transfer it to their main account. The 60 dollars is also a good bit cheaper than buying an account and paying for the transfer. The option being there is just that, an option and affects people who have no intent in using none whilst empowering people with less time and extra money to be able to get to end game / have alts.
nothing but empty space here bro. move along now.
I've read a few pages and people complaining that this is to much, and RAF is cheaper
19.95+19.95 for mop? that's 40 dollars and it only gets you to what 85? so still have 5 levels to go. which is a few more ours running around.
I actually like this idea, $60 is not bad, I won't be buying it, since I have enough alts, but if I do need to its a good price.
For that amount, I would rather spend it on outdoor activities, such as downhill ski'ing.
Blizzard must be joking with that price, but then again I will never use those services anyways. I am sure there are plenty of cock$u%^%^s out there willing to spend their hard earned money on wastes like this. I hope those idiots boost 3-4 characters, and spend hundreds of $ so they may feel like proud pixilated heroes. I hope those that do, feel much better about themselves and at the same time come back to MMO forums to brag about their virtual prowess.
To Blizzard all I have to say is...
“Life is and will ever remain an equation incapable of solution, but it contains certain known factors.”
In all honesty, peoples snarky comments about how, "Oh atleast my wife wont leave me now because I dont level all dayzzzz!"
Or, "have fun playing low level dungeons again suckers for the 12th time." That one makes particularly no sense because with 12 toons you would already have a max of every character, which means any of the 10th would be novelty for your enjoyment, which would usually mean you enjoy leveling because you wouldnt level someone to end game to play it when you already have one! >.< Morons.
Theres no fucking argument you can use that would justify buying a max character, Blizzards best argument is weak at best, "Oh, we want new players to be able to jump right into the heart of the game." None of us were granted that before so which leads me to believe they are doing it purely for more money. Because their subs arent what they used to be, we all know that. They still make good money but not compared to their 12 million subscribers peak, so this is a good way for them to make some extra cash.
But for someone who has played for 7 years, I find it asinine. It doesnt effect my gameplay, no, unless you consider a ton more incompetent, level granted new players spamming your LFR and LFD effecting it then which yes it will, highly. But it just takes away from the whole experience of the game of getting to know the story a little, see the world, learn your character, get murdered by something WAY stronger then you. See the time they took to build beautiful, large landscapes and zones and dungeons.
I guess thats what an MMORPG is to me, well more or less an RPG, the immersion.
