Oh mother of god.... i love how you minions still cover for master Blizzard, despite the obvious foreshadowing of things to come. "It's not pay to win!" - no no, the fact that you can pay now to skip the leveling process isnt pay to win. It will only get worse. In a few years you can buy gear, gold, and other currency.
I have already leveled over 20 toons to 90 out of pure boredom. I am glad it is a little pricey, but now people will think all my toons were bought and paid for just based off logic.
People can still have a vested interest in things which they no longer participate. It's not an impossibility. At least someone like me cares about the quality of the game and the effects on the community, unlike people like you and the others who post "good riddance" to anyone leaving WoW or with any complaints. That's a great way to make sure the game strives and continues to expand, rather than stagnates and die.
I'm loving all this rage over the price. The price SHOULD be high enough to make people pause and think "Should I spend the next month or so levelling to 90 the hard way, or spend 4 months of game time to have it now?"
Every Player gets with the next expansion a free 90!
So yes it is a reasonable price: you get one free, but if you want more level or pay somethink for it. But i would really like to see something like a 2 hour-testing-phase where you can play the class and if you don't like it, you can delete it and use the 90-boost on another class.
Also i don't give anything about it: i have 8 90s, and until WoD I have 11 of them.
I'm not gonna be bothering myself with the next expansion, happily keeping my Emi at 90 for the foreseeable future unless they do a special offer on Warlords at some point like they have with previous expansions i.e around the £4-£5 mark. There's plenty new mmo's on the horizon with 1 in particular having caught my eye
Wish nothing but the best to those that will stick with WoW, it was a great game, but after 9yrs I've just seen the game changed too much for my liking any more.
It's obvious, that they don't really want you to use the feature.
This should never had happened.
I actually like this price, this way people will actually still level.
I like how expensive this is
Those who use this "I gonna leave cuz its too expensive" really come on. makes me lul in real just thought of people saying things like that.
This boost price is perfect it stops those who sell accounts from overly abusing it, and stops general people from overly abusing it. also stop the Muility boxing (seen lot more of those lately people playing 5 toons at once). ok not stop it but put it to a lesser dagree

WoW having more subs than SWTOR is the same thing as Justin Bieber having more youtube plays than Tupac. Just because its more popular doesn't mean its good.
Warcraft Lore has gone from one of the most vast and interesting stories in all of gaming to a bad Thrall Fanfic by Chris Metzen.
SWTOR Referral link: http://www.swtor.com/r/2MpjV9 7 free days and other free stuff.
So this is what World of Warcraft the game i have loved for 6 years is turning into...... I'm disgusted, i have spent 6 years levelling up all my characters and enjoying the game BUT! now you can just spend $60 POOFFFF lvl 90 character be ashamed at what you are becoming =(A pay to win game soon!) THANKS BLIZZARD ITS NICE KNOWING YOU!
$60 basically guaranteed that no newbie is gonna hit 90. Most people I know don't even learn their class until 90 and mash buttons until then. This was a smart choice their part.
Now these people in here claiming to "unsub" over the cost are either trolling or stupid (possibly both). It's an optional service, you need an alt that badly and feel that this service is the only way? Threatening to "quit" over the price? Get real. All that says to me is:
I HAVE TO PLAY THIS GAME AND LEVEL BY HAND? HELL NO. PAY 2 NOT PLAY.
