    Boost comes with pre-order, right? So...maybe he used the 'free' boost and had no other toons he wanted to play so used it to skip MoP content and get maxed professions. So maybe he didn't "waste $66 dollars" at all?

    Also, as many people before me have pointed out and many more will continue to point out after me, this is just a couple hours of work time. Would I rather spend several days getting 1-90 or spend 2 hours working after my day would normally end in order to hit 90? I've considered doing this on a couple level 85 toons, myself for that exact reason...That having been said, I don't think I play the game enough to justify it for multiple toons, but the "free" boost? I'm equally as likely to use it on my 85 warrior as I am on my 60 hunter as I am on a fresh level 1.

    It is always a question of time vs money. Which is more valuable? So the person used money to save time. So what? Everyone does it all the time.
    Because that doesn't make a very fun game. "Oh, I really don't have the time of day to spend practicing to play basketball to play in a bracket-game, I'll just bribe the ref and we'll jump straight to the last game", is basically what it winds up feeling like.

    No, buying a boosted 90 is like putting yourself in a self-induced coma for twenty years to reduce the amount of time needed to wait to try-out for the basketball teams- you'll still need to learn to compete with the big dogs.

    OP, he probably did it for profession boosts, I would've done it. What he does is none of your business, you only piss people off.

    Pebs never mentioned it "affecting" anyone.

    That isn't an excuse for disliking the service Blizz is offering. In fact, the service has merely 'flooded' these types of players for a short period of time instead of spreading them all out over quite a few different groups. Bad people are going to be bad no matter what and good people are going to be good no matter what. It's the lack of effort that's causing you the issue, not the actual service. Blame bad players not good business decisions. LFR has been a shithole from the start anyway.

    Not to mention these are primarily people using the free 90 boosts they get when pre-ordering WoD. You aren't going to get a lot of people spamming $60 dollar characters when the expack comes out. AND, if Blizzard really wanted to monetize that service, they could have been charging half that.

    Yea, it's the casual fanbois who are causing issues but they've ALWAYS caused issues because they're simply bad. If the service was the real issue then no one who buys a boost can be good ever. The problem is the bad players, not the service. People need to learn where to put their frustration.

    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.
    After having leveled ... uh ... *opens launcher, counts* 10 characters to 90 with another at 87, I am seriously considering boosting one of my 85s just so I don't have to do Pandaria again. (I won't. But it's crossed my mind.)

    Wrath and Cata did it right with branching choices for where to start leveling and continue leveling. Pandaria is much more like Outland with the single starting zone for both factions, and it's only the fact Jade Forest is really freakin' pretty that I don't despise it as much as I do HFP.

    That is a completly different thing, as that is, not only breaking the rules, but getting something for free,without paying working for it.
    A paied char boost, is paied for, and if you have paied for it, you have worked for it (due to working in order to get the money)

    It doesn't even remotely affect your game, your gameplay, or even your imaginary gameplay..
    Leveling up to 90 at the current time of the x-pack is no longer a competition, and if you do, its one you lost before you even started, hence p2boost complaining is mute due to the contest already beeing over.

    And yes, boosted 90's are destroying this game, as much as powerleveld toons were destroying every MMO to date, its not ANY different.
    HOW are they destroying the game? Like.. really? a powerboosted char has NEVER ruined a game. All it ruins, is your ego.

    How do u know he didnt just buy the new xpac and so he got the "free boost"? Everyone is gonna get that boost if they buy WoD, so i dont see what ur problem is...

    Also I cant wait for my boost when i buy WoD, Im tired of leveling toons thru the same shit ive been lvling toons thru for years...

    I personally like the idea, I don't care what anyone says or how "newbish" it might be, as a player who has played on and off during BC, WoTLK, Cata, and slim parts of MoP, I'm excited to be able to boost any character I want and start out heading straight into new content. I've always played Pally no other class have I played, my one and only character was a Paladin. Now, the boost gives me a chance to explore and learn new classes that I've never had time for.

    All I read was OP being an elitist scum and talking trash to someone he doesn't even know about shit that doesn't concern him. Way to do your part in keeping the community as toxic as possible!

    Why not, I would prop do something like that if I have lvl 85 or 80. That is if I like the class.Mostly because I hate lvling

    Of course! It's someone who got something in a way I don't approve of, whether or not it's allowed by the game rules and EULA! They didn't EEEEAAAAARRRRNNNN it like I did! /specialsnowflake /mockingsarcasm

    Seriously, I think that's what it comes down to in most cases. The whole 'p2w slippery slope' argument is just them being disingenuous. They're mad people got something they personally invested a lot more time and effort into. Just like all the people that cry about raid mounts being attained a few xpacs later and so on.
