    Why?

    WildStar does this with CREDD and EVE does this with PLEX. It's a great system that's been proven to work in multiple scenarios. Why wouldn't Blizzard implement it? This means that WoW can essentially be 'Grind-to-Play'. It's great for people with lots of time and not much money, aka teenagers and college students.

    Finally, been wanting this for years. No doubt people will complain but this is good news for me.

    Why is it all over? It hurts gold farming and provides a way for players that are low on cash a way to play the game.

    I think it is a great change with many good implications.
    Not only it offers people with money issues a chance, it also throws bots out of business if well implemented.

    Eliminates the risk factor when trading Gold for Game Cards that has been done since forever.

    Got piles of gold so this change is welcome.

    I see 40 people zoning in and out every 10 seconds in dragon soul entrance. Wonder what other raids they are farming for gold

    Welcome to free-to-play. Well, for some of us.

    Cool I might actually play again since I have an abundance of gold just sitting around. Will hop in for a dungeon or two.

    the problem is this will make the bot problem even worse: you thought there were bots everywhere before? just imagine now, with sub time available for gold. yeah, people bought time cards in the past but this will make things exponentially worse.

    As someone sitting on three-quarters to gold cap, I welcome WoW being free-to-play for me for at least the next 5 years.

    Very curious about how much people will sell them for.
    Casual & lazy PvE multiboxer, gold maker and altoholic.

    A much needed feature.

    Let the idiots complain with their pathetic "omfg p2winz" bullshit, it's happening that's all that matters.

    Win-Win situation.

    The play-a-lots may sell their gold.
    The play-not-muchs may buy gold legally.

    I dont see any disadvantage.

    It's about time Blizzard catches up to other MMOS that have featured this for years.
