    Really? I usually care about bots because they ruin the economy, or they advertise websites in the case of spambots which is annoying.
    The world is full of evil and lies and pain and death, and you can't hide from it... You can only face it. The question is, when you do, how do you respond? Who do you become?

    Really. I remember when a guy would join a dungeon with an account, character, and gear he had clearly purchased and had not earned. People would tell him off. I guess it's people's "right" to ruin the game for others nowadays.

    Lead game designer of Wildstar put it best when asked what about the people who want all the gear and features but don't want to put to put the time in. "Then don't play"
    The only ones who are pathetic here, are people like yourself who think that your way of doing things and viewing the world is the right one.

    I won't pay for the boost myself, I'm actually doubtful I'll be around for WoD if things keep going the way they are, but I don't sit e-peening myself over it. If someone wants to spend the cash and feels that it is worth it, who am I to decide if it's wrong or not? Humility...learn it.

    Another person playing who thinks it's ruining the game you've invested a lot of time and money into?

    Maybe you're the guy carrying 10+ P2wins in greens through LFR and wiping 10 times.

    Probably had more to do with him not being able to play properly. Otherwise you would never have noticed, would you? And then it wouldn't be a problem.

    Yeah, I do care if somebody joins a dungeon with me when they clearly have no clue how to play. Do I care how he acquired said character and gear? Not really, no. As long has it doesn't have a negative impact on my game I really don't see why I should care.

    I don't get why people complain so much about Blizzard trying to widen their profit margin. They are a company. If I ran a company, I would probably try and make as much money as I could too. Stop treating Blizzard like a nonprofit, it's a video game, the entertainment business, a leisure activity that you pay for.

    At the moment, all you can buy is a 90 with sub-high end gear. Soon enough, that will also be 10 levels below cap. Personally, I won't be too bothered until you can buy full sets of gear that people are currently having to earn, such as the current tier of honor gear or current or second tier raid gear. I understand others are bothered by less, but the line of reasoning sometimes just seems totally irrational.

    By the way, I started playing in Cata, have leveled 4 characters to 90 and have a few between 85 and 90. I pre-ordered and boosted a paladin to 90. Read up on him a bit, asked for tips, and then went into a heroic dungeon just to get a feel for it. I let the rest of my party know I had just boosted, and we ran through just fine, if perhaps a little slowly. It's the attitude of the player that's the problem, not the character itself or how they got it.

    I boosted my 85 rogue. I only really leveled her in cata so that I could do the quest for the legendary (which was a lot of fun). I recently got the dagger off garrosh and she had no profs AND I already have every class (more than one of each in some cases) at 85-90.

    So there you go.

    That said, I wouldn't purchase the boost by itself. It's just way too easy to level. It was a nice perk from buying the preorder.

    I care because it is affecting my game. If competitors are just winning with wallet, its not fun anymore.

    85-90 still takes several hours, and even days for some. For the hours spent levelling to 90, earning $60 would take me a little bit above 2 hours. As such I could be working rather than levelling an endless grind I've done several times already in order to justify the cost. Mind you I wouldn't pay, as I do not enjoy the current content and would rather take my time to level some characters at varying levels.

    Oh and how does this affect you in any way? What a person does with their own money is up to them. An MMO are often balanced and made around current content, that being at the max level. So in order to bypass certain aspects to get to said content would be worth the cash spent.

    yeah grats to blizz for making money, god forbid they pay the bills and give us a game to play...wow man, you complain about nothing, like its your job or something
    and god forbid someone playing a game less then you do, ever think about anyone but yourself, you are a jerk and prove it with this post
    1-90 boosts dont ruin a game, its douches like you who ruin a game for others
    im glad you are all butthurt over this
    and if you plan on playing the next expac you will spend the same amount of money he did, so you complain about something that you will be doing in the future
    he probably bought the expansion, like every other person with their free boost to 90
    live and let live...or not, we would all be better off if you died young from stressing over lil things like this

    If you dont have time to play then dont? Seriously its not that you HAVE to play.

    And yes, boosted 90's are destroying this game, as much as powerleveld toons were destroying every MMO to date, its not ANY different.

    But I do notice them. All my LFR raids take 3x-4x as much time as they used to. We wipe over and over. They're too under-geared and unfamiliar with their class to do anything useful, most times. I'm tired of people being so entitled that they feel I owe it to them to carry them through LFR.

    That's about how people don't even bother to learn to play. It has nothing to do with them buying the characters or their gear.

    tbh, i log on & do pretty much nothing.
    i cant raid anymore due to my new job, ive completed garrosh before xmas & have killed 1 boss in SoO normal since.
    i am a recruiter for my guild, but i have just recruited the final 2 ppl we needed & now i find myself sitting about.
    luckily i have outside interests, otherwise i really would be screwed playing wow.

    Do people get this angry when they see someone driving an expensive car, or living in a big house, or wearing fancy clothing, or dining at a nice restaurant? I mean, cmon people. Really? Apply this logic to other things and see how much it shouldn't matter, how much you shouldn't care.

    Why would someone buy a car when they can just walk/bike/run there?
    Why would someone buy a steak when they could survive on yams?
    Why would someone buy a house with multiple rooms, a pool, etc when you can live easily in one room without even a bed?

    The point of having money is being able to use on things you personally think matter. Whether its comfort, taste, time, whatever. People getting all riled up over how someone drops 60 bucks on the game to save them time/boredom/whatever the reason is really odd.

    So ok, 1-90 is understandable a little but 85-90 even after the experience nerf? Why even bother to play the game at all then? That money could have been gone to something much better.


    All i can say is grats blizzard, you always find ways to reel the money in.
    This very post and this very thread and others like it are what is wrong with the community or whats left of it.. But really OP why do you care so much about what he did to get to 90, do you know them, are they in your guild?

    Just because you're poor, doesn't mean you are allowed to bully people in a better situation than you.
    This... I make a little over $30 an hour right now... ill take 2 hours of work to get a 90 that i can actually have fun playing. I hate the leveling process, especially 85-90.
