    But you can't win by just being level 90.

    I don't and in any case 90 is not max level in WoD when levelling becomes relevant again.

    I feel like some people are trying to weasel their way into calling this optional purchase (which is free with every WoD key) P2W just so they can have the joy of QQing about it. Get. A. Life.

    can you explain why having many alts is an elitist thing? I got 10 chars to max and the 11th at 86 and I am playing totally casual and even had a break for 2 months? all without this new service...

    People calling this P2W seem to not be familiar with the dreadful thing "P2W" actually is, reaching max lvl for a fee is pretty much "Congratulations, you've purchased your way through the tutorial, now enjoy being bashed on for being a p2w noob" on the extreme side ofc. However if they do let people skip ahead in the current expansions like 1-3 weeks into WoD then I could see this becoming an issue for people and I'm pretty sure blizz wouldn't do that now would they?

    P2W in it's true form at this stage would be, during MoP, earn yourself a lvl 100 with the first all purple WoD raiding gear with weapons and such. You then paid, to get an unfair advantage over everyone else that only players with money to spend can achieve, whilst getting max lvl at this stage really isn't. It's more of "Pay to catch up" so you can prepare for WoD.

    Your friends will get a free lvl90 boost when they purchase WoD.

    Except that you can already, and a lot of people do have a massive number of alts already. The ability to buy a lvl90 char when the max level is 100 wont change anything.

    So really not at all.

    There are already people who are terrible and don't know how to play at max level.
    So even though you hate it you still want it?
    They get a free 90, how many did they need?

    Who cares? Every person who mattered in WoW have all jumped ship. Only casuals and fanboys left, they're just adapting the game to the audience.

    More casuals than ever, the hardcore fanbase is still there due to lack of anywhere better to go if nothing else, yeah I'd say both groups of key people are still there.

    P2W is always bad. Wow is doomed to fail now that it is fully p2w.
    Buying 90 is not pay to win, in fact there is ZERO authorized pay to win service's in wow. You and every other "pay to win" parrot seriously need to book an appointment with a proctologist for a cranium removal procedure.

    you realize that this is the case already ? A day never goes by where I dont see a character that is being played / Gemmed / Enchanted so badly it makes me wonder if they have ever played the class at all.

    So very true there is pretty much bugger all for the HC crowd, in terms of end game Rift might have not got that far, Aion who knows never played it, GW2 has SFA for those who are used to the EQ/WoW end game style.. SWToR I think does but who knows same with LoTRO and as for TESO well that remains to be seen..

    Sure, and up is down if you define standing on your head as normal.
