    Well aren't you a bucket of sunshine.

    I would like you to re-read what he said again. Please. Let's analyze it together.

    Haha, now I know that I won't be buying the boost. I put my limit at $5-10 for a free 90. Noway am I spending $60 on it.
    "Haha..."
    - This likely means he thinks something is funny, or comical, if you prefer that word.

    "...now I know..."
    - This indicates a new piece of knowledge that he didn't have before. Such as the price of said service.

    "...that I won't be buying the boost..."
    - This service is not for him. This is because of his new level of knowledge (i.e. the price).

    "I put my limit at $5-10 for a free 90."
    - So. The limit he would pay is $5-10. He didn't know the price beforehand, but has now listed what he thinks is a fair price.

    "Noway am I spending $60 on it."
    - Clearly the price as listed does not match his needs.


    If we add it together it seems that he finds the price of $60 comical, didn't know the price beforehand, but now won't be buying it, thinks that an appropriate price would be $5-10, and would never pay $60 for such a service.

    My question to him was whether he actually thought that such a service would actually cost $5-10, as he indicates this would be the price he would pay. For some reason this has led you to question my ability to comprehend. Since I have broken this down so nicely, I'm sure you can tell that this just isn't the case.

    I'll just wait over here for your apology. I also accept cupcakes and/or donuts.

    Lost almost all my faith in humanity while reading these comments.

    It costs $60. Big deal, if you can't afford it, then don't use it.

    I've heard a rumor that you can actually level a character in-game by your self.
    I know right, mind blown right there!

    If it would be something like 20 - 30 $ people would feel more "forced" to use it when ever they felt like leveling a new character,
    but by making it $60 Blizzard is actually encouraging(?) people to level "the old way" (lol) and see / experience the whole wide world
    they've made us for!

    Second, please tell me how this feature makes WoW pay-to-win? I would personally have to make this boosted character on a different realm,
    cause the one I am playing on is full (11 characters on my account I mean). Surely that has nothing to do with how well I am doing in-game.

    All in all, never going to use it as I kinda like leveling. $60 is fine, in my opinion it could be even higher, and this is coming from a player that lives in Finland
    and if everything goes as always, this will mean $60 = 60€. That around $10 more that in US (or something around that).

    And if the day ever comes when Blizzard actually starts to sell gear or other stuff THAT HAS ACTUAL IMPACT in-game, so many people will simply quit
    and thus I strongly believe it won't happen as long as WoW has strong and loyal "fanbase" that keeps on playing!

    My 2 cents, sorry for possible grammar mistakes, not my first language..

    And that's for a NEW player who would have to buy the expansions the old way. I wasn't asking about a new player. You don't need to buy the other expansions to get WoD either I think. I believe you're allowed to buy WoD and just play WoD and not do the older content but I'm not sure. I believe that was the whole point of giving people free 90s for WoD since the older content was too much for a new player to go through. I was asking, if you buy WoD on a new account and merge them, does that cost money IF that's the way it's going work with WoD.
    You will still need to buy the previous games if you don't already have a secondary account. The base model currently stretches 1-85 content, so if you want a second account, you'd need to purchase WoW + MoP + WoD. They included a free 90 because they didn't like the idea of someone buying a new game and having to spend so much time trying to catch up on a main character. Going the route you suggested would be a $40 lvl90, but if you wanted it on your first account, you'd have to pay the $25 transfer fee.

    I'm an RPG gamer first, MMO second. It's clear the current WoW fanbase has it the other way around. Thats why me and every single one of my friends from vanilla will never go back. The focus of the game has done a complete flip.
    Was there a focus in vanilla?

    6 MONTHS LATER: Dude, it's only 60 bucks. Totally worth it, and a nice feature too.
    Here was my reaction:

    November: Well, it's just an idea at this point, not something that's going in for certain.

    1 Month Later: Well, looks like I'm going to go ahead and unsub. Can't see supporting a company that tries to be both P2P and Sub based in the same game, that's crappy business.

    3 Months later: $60, I guess I can live with that. I'll never buy a boost because that defeats the core heart of an MMO. Anyone that buys that truly lives by the motto, "A fool and his money are soon parted." If someone wants to drop 4 months worth of play time on one character, that's their business. My opinion is they're retarded, but again, it's their choice.

    If blizz played there cards right, they would have set this to 10-20$. This would not only encourage current players to spend lots of $$$, but might add more new players increasing their subs therefore increasing $$$. but activision le sigh

    $60 is too much for me to be bothered using it.

    Here's his answer to your post, once again, it's called comprehension...and no he didn't think 5-10 would be a fair price, he set his limit at 5-10 l2read.

    I mean, yeah $60 is fine and dandy to prohibit people from skipping playing the game... But am I the only one who's like... Why did they even make it an option in the first place?

  13. #1013
    and I thought I'd quit this game because I was bored of WoW. Not because I was nervous about all the people who buy the expansion and get a free 90. Low and behold I am quitting for BOTH reasons. In before this game goes to complete shit with people who know nothing about their character. Or have purchased all 11 classes and can't tunnel vision just one and play it right. WoW has become a real world gold sink. Run you fools!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ok so there is a transfer fee of some sort, I didn't know that. So even if you only had to buy WoD AND xfer, it would still be 65 dollars, which is more expensive than just buying a 90 outright. Damn. I still think it's far too expensive for me but it makes sense at least now. Thank you.

    Boy I love these kinds of complaints. I used to be like you and then I realized that 95% of people are awful at this game anyway so providing them with this service won't change a damn thing. Ultimately the player is going to be good or bad depending on their own effort so it won't make any real difference what Blizzard does pretty much short of forcing these players into a heroic raiding group.

    I'm not entirely sure you know what comprehension means. I did kind of break it down for you, but maybe an example would help.

    Imagine you went to a Porsche dealership. The dealer shows you around, points out all the nice shiny cars, and gauges your interest. He then says that the particular model you are eyeing costs $90,000. You reply that this was outrageous, and the most you would ever consider paying for it is $5-10.

    At this point, can you imagine that the dealer might say something along the lines of: "Sir, did you really think you could buy a Porsche for $5-10?"

    Can you see what I am getting at here? I quite clearly comprehend, and don't think I need to "l2read" as you so eloquently put it.

    I think I'd like some ice cream with my pie and/or cupcakes. This is taking more effort than I thought it would.

    I hope this is the final price, to discourage it unless someone REALLY wants to fork over their parent's money.

    My biggest issue with WoW was always people not knowing how to play their toons in groups at top level. I am sure some of these morons paid levelign services, or bought accounts. But unfortunately I think the vast majority were people just too ignorant to care.

    Now any shmuck is going to be able to powerlevel a toon from 60 (I can level to 60 in 8 hours flat with ease) to 90 for a fee legally from Blizzard? Yeah, 60 bucks, so what? If you think that price is restrictive you're smoking better shit than I am.

    Good bye WoW. I quit months ago because my guild fell apart, but I had planned to come back because of how amazing garrisons look. But with this, I am officially done. For the first time since I started playing WoW back in classics beta, I have uninstalled the game with the intentions of never reinstalling it.
