    I wouldn't take the risk, especially not now. Perhaps if it had been a few years ago, but even then $500 is a lot for me to drop on a game I might end up not playing in a few months time.

    This. If from the first time I started playing WoW there was a lifetime fee, then yes. As it stands now though, not a chance in hell. WoW has been suffering since Cata with poor gaming. I don't see that changing in WoD with the meager offering they're giving. The most I'd pay now for a lifetime sub is $100.

    If I had paid $500, I'd have saved myself $431.77 over the lifetime of WoW that I actually have played. I know I'm probably on the low end of that too since I haven't played seriously for two expansions now.

    Just taking the monthly sub fee into account, I would have saved around 980$ if I had bought such a lifetime sub at the beginning of my WoW career. Per account.
    Now take that x2.5 (two accs + one on-and-off-account) and I would have saved ~2.500$ from the subscription cost alone. Not bad.

    HELL no. I only play for a few months at a time now. Even if WoW lasted the rest of my life, I don't think I'd ever actually get my money's worth.

    does the lifetime wow subscription include services like faction & server transfers?
    My weekly podcast can be downloaded here this week a man robs a gas station with a BOOMERANG? wtf

    Right now? No. 10 years ago, yes.

  7. #107
    Yes, for 500 USD but not 500 euro or some other stupid currency exchange rate. feels like its an expansion to late for it now

    Wow, you spend that much on a video game?

    lmao

    If they made a lifetime WoW subscription they would release 1 raid a year. Like when all the people bought the WoW yearly pass + diablo 3 they got Dragon Soul and hardly any content during that time.

    That is the sub fee alone. I spent a lot more than that on char services (like race changes) and on things like TCG/Blizzcon stuff etc.

    I don't regret anything, though. I have no problem with spending some money on my hobbies (which WoW certainly is considering just how many hours I have played the game during all those years).

    If this were any upcoming expansion but Warlords of Timeless Isle Continent, I would have. But now? Not a chance. Very much doubt I'm even playing past MoP.

    There was a time where I'd say yes without hesitation when I had a near constant active subscription and have probably put near if not over $1000 in fees in the 7/8 years I've played but as it stands right now I highly doubt it and will probably only subscribe for a few months here and there in the future so it wouldn't hold up the value to me.

    At its peak, I think a lot of people would have considered it. Now? Obviously not so much.

  16. #116
    Would I have during Vanilla and TBC? Yea...would I now? I'd rather die.

  17. #117
    500??? Maybe if it included the cost of the expansions and of course maybe recharging character services. They'd have to offer a lot more than life time sub for 500$ to be worth it lol, especially considering there is no guarantee that WoW will exist in 4-5 years the chances of it not existing are astronomical but still possible.

    500 / 13 = 38.5 = 3.2 years. So it wouldn't be that long until it would be cheaper.

    I'm just saying, thats a lot of money to spend on a video game. A video game. (I re-said video game to emphasize the point)

    Does it really matter? It's a hobby and it kept me entertained for many, MANY hours. Like, for countless hours considering my /played time.
    Yes, there's no physical countervalue. But still...I spent money and had fun.
