    Would be just as complex as it is now ;o There is not much difference except that players can have alot more gold without getting capped.

    I like the idea.

    In fact, if I'm not mistaken, internally all money is stored as copper, the gold and silver is just something that's shown by the ui for readability purposes.

    Anyway, I don't think an additional currency unit is really needed yet, but I at the same time it wouldn't hurt either.
    I was going to say just this. Having platinum won't change anything. Hell, this can probably be "supported" via addons. Gold and silver are both representations of your character's only currency: copper.

    IMO, this would be a wasted idea to implement. It wouldn't change anything or serve any real purpose.

    I'd be all for it, but you have to consider that for some it might seem like Platinum is useless because majority of the stuff in the game doesn't cost anywhere near 100g.

    But in the end, gold capping concerns such a tiny tiny tiny amount of players, pleasing them is like adding higher level herbs to Wandering Isles if people want to get to 90 through Herblore/Mining alone(like that 1 guy did) while being Neutral.
    It would do nothing to solve capping issues, for that is still stored in copper.
    Any given number format has a finite upper limit for the number it can represent.
    1m is just an arbitrary "neat" limit below the actual upper limit that it can currently support.
    Raising the limit would simply see people aim for a new one.

    214,748 Gold, 36 Silver and 46 Copper was limited by the use of a 32-bit signed integer, which had a range from its lowest to highest value of 2,147,483,647.
    It was stored in copper then, and it still is.

    Nobody is asking the most important question- Where would this Platinum come from? Azeroth currently does not have ANY Platinum ore/bars/whatever. Theres copper, silver, and gold, but there is absolutel no Platinum ore.
    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.

    It is truly a time to be alive when questions such as these are being asked.

    It doesn't benefit WoW at all, everything would still be the same, people would make it out. Current stuff would still cost the same equivalent amount in platinum.

    It would just make a complete waste of time for blizzard to put any effort into making this change, and as someone said before it doesn't go hand-in-hand with lore, as lore has never referred to platinum for a currency.

    If you wanted to use "Platinum" then you would implement it before the game is initially released, adding new currency does nothing gameplay wise, at all.
