    It was stated clearly that the game is blizz property and if blizzard wanted to powerlevel they could offer it. The same goes for inflation and gold selling (which btw is announced in the ads).
    I linked the original post, and clearly stated that I made the emphasis (bold portions). I don't think the entire original post is necessary, contextually.

    Also, this wasn't some one off from a rebellious rogue agent. Blizzard had said stuff like this for years as I recall. Nobody else remembers Blizzard making official statements of a similar nature? Maybe I'm mistaken.

    OT though, they want the game to focus on the new expansion, and with 10lvls to grind though Draenor, they decided to let more people see it....Hopefully there's enough content in WOD to make everyone happy and we won't notice the new 90's then....

    It's because Blizzard are full of shit and they contradict themselves all the time. They would make good politicians.

    the mistake was not making it more enjoyanble instead of paying to skip it, yes its a boring grind but (this is my opinion) 2-3 days leveling is far better than paying £35 to skip it

    after 3 months of WOD, Blizzard will sell boosted lvl 100s

  9. #49
    Ummmmm, did I miss something? They are NOT charging for a power leveling service, or even the insta-boost to 90, that is a FREE service if you purchase the expansion.

    If they were selling boosted toons in the store for a price, you would have an argument, however, this is a reach even for the Blizzard haters.

    when buying the 90 boost blizzard is playing you toon and you pay them for that, similar to how you pay a site to level you toon for you... so basicly det blizzard is selling power leveling and advocating it, yes ofc that post is 1 year ago but thta's a major stance change in a year and while im at it no im not a blizz/wow fanboi or hater i tend to keep myself on the fence always. in all honesty i dont really like it and i dont care for it.
    Lol! Especially since the level a character to 90 by paying didn't just crop up over night. I bet they had been talking about it during the time of that post.

    Free for $10 extra. Plus $60 for each additional.

    It has been stated that they are selling a boosted 90 for $60 out of the store homie.

    I retract my previous statement (haven't played since September, but never seen that post). Yeah, not on board with this. I think there should be restrictions on them, like there was with the DK's.

    Should just go play TESO or Wildstar since they will never have a cash shop or do anything at all like Blizzards business model....

    my point was that its still power leveling the only difference is that you arent paying a 3rd party company to do it..but i see you didnt catch that

  17. #57
    Eh, I figure they'd rather have people playing a little bit than not at all because they don't want to level.

    In my opinion they had 3 choices really. It was either:

    A) Don't give people the paid 90 service and allow people to buy multiple expansion boxes then link accounts
    B) Don't give people free 90's, so people who are brand new/old players are less likely to return knowing how much bullshit they have to go through in order to get to the important content.
    Or C) Make the paid service. But make it a higher price so people are less likely to use it but if they do THEY get the money through to themselves instead of to the Powerlevelers.

    So, assuming that was all their choices as a business whose goal it is to maximize profit, what do you think makes the most sense?

    yes option c makes most sence from a busniess point of view but i dont agree with it and its my opinion, i also dont agree with them upping the price of the xpac because of a char bosst that many dont want or need

    Did you catch the point where I was agreeing with you?
