    I guess... I still think 100k is to much for that bike when you can get a yak instead.

    I could buy a full gold CM carry and get an awesome armor set and have 4 Phoenixes when WoD comes out for around 100k. It's not even close to being a reasonable amount, just compare it to other things that cost the same amount.
    The Onyx Panther (Costs all the other panther mounts to make, so it's 18k per one already)
    The Yak mount (Actually has usages to it)
    The Engineering rockets (I think these cost a couple of Orbs of Mystery, which like said are 18k per one)

    It just doesn't make sense, two of those are meant to be for selling for profit since they're profession things, and the other has actual usage. The closest this can be compared to is the Yak mount, which is more worthy of 100k+ than this chopper is.
    My shaman I guess if you want to see it or something.

    yet NONE of those mounts were tied to a real life contest with matching counter parts. again, its not the amenities that other mounts have, its the fact that this was a contest. you lost. the collective whole of the alliance should reflect on this price and either not give a shit, or be so disappointed that they vow to never let the horde win again.

    you are not paying for extra amenities like you are for those other mounts, you are paying for the fact that the collective whole of the alliance failed.

    And why? What logic is there behind going "well, we are gonna add the mount, but we're punishing your faction for losing a vote"? It's a ridiculous idea, if the whole idea of the competition was just to have people vote for their faction, then why did they even bother? They should of just added the Alliance mount, since there's more Alliance players. The point is there are people who play BOTH factions, and they actually decided which one they like more, yet others are to be punished because why? There's literally no reason.

    And before someone says "lol you're just mad because Alliance lost", no, if this was the Horde getting the same thing you can bet I'd be there saying it's equally ridiculous. There's no reason players should be "punished", the punishment is already knowing you lost and that you have to pay for the mount, not that you have to cough up your life savings and hope you can make enough to actually get the mount.

    Alliance may have a larger player base, but "FOAR DA HORDE" is what people go frothingly mad over. If you've ever been to a Blizzcon, it's extremely obvious that they would always win any popularity contest. You could blame it on the fact that the Alliance don't have a catchy battle cry (pop quiz, do you even know what it is?), but even with the crappy battle cry, horde is just more popular. Again, regardless of population numbers.

    It's a product of Blizzard over-agitating an already overgrown problem... In any public event for WoW or the Warcraft series in general, the horde is always overplayed and given the most attention. The devs and team members themselves hold and create more hype for horde. Now, before you call me out on horde v. alliance favoritism, I'm speaking purely about public/online events and their effect on the in-game community.

    Gameplay-wise... 100k is excessive. Highly excessive. A mount like this should cost 10k MAX. It offers no utility and doesn't fly. To all those saying that this is a punishment to the losers of the contest.. Keep in mind that if 100k is the final price for a mount like this, it will comfortably pave their way to add grossly excessive gold sinks in other areas of their game. And it'll be BOTH factions problem then. Oh and I realize the yak is an excess as well, but it offers utility in the way of 2 passenger seats and 2 NPCs.

    I would assume that after the free period, the Horde bike will be for sale as well. Possibly
    for the same amount; so these mounts may be both sides' 'problem' soon.

    100k settlement isn't bad. The losing vote shouldn't expect anything at all tbh.

    They're being generous if you ask me for even adding it in the game.

    Although I thought I'd be 15-20k, but now I hope it stays at 100k so I can read all the crying about a cosmetic item.

    And that's ridiculous too. It's silly to expect someone to cough up that much gold when the rest of the Horde is probably laughing at it like it's a welfare mount.

    I would like the mount but I think the most I'd pay for it is 10k and even that feels like a lot.
    <--all 90 now.

    I find it really odd that people on these forums will call Blizzard generous for this, yet pick apart everything else they do as having an ulterior motive. Obviously they're just using this as a "Look Alliance we really do like you! And we listened to your requests!!" when they've had it planned from the start most likely.

    Well according to their initial blue post. They state something along the lines of, "Due to the huge outcry for the alliance bike, x will happen, but will cost a heafty some of gold."

    They might not have had it planned at all. You know, it IS blizzard.

    Extra points if you saw what I did there

    I'd say outcry is a similar word to demand. That's why I also said, "Something along the lines of,"

    And let's be honest, people demanded it, and cried for it.

    I think putting it in the game for such an absurd price is a lot more insulting than simply not having it at all. They should have just made the bike that won available to both factions and been done with it. But it makes no difference to me really. I had no intentions of ever using either.

  15. #135
    I too expected 10-20k, but should have expected yak mount territory when I saw it said hefty sum. Granted, it is 100k in WoD gold, and the value of gold has deflated every xpac, so there's that

    The bike isn't worth 10% of that. That's pretty laughable if that price is what actually hits live.

    Honestly I thought the alliance bike blew the horde one out of the water, am I the only person who thought that? I thought the horde one looked like a cheap toy and was pretty laughable. also 100k really isn't much, considering how easy gold is to come by.

    the point is that it is sold with unreasonable price. because you lost the voting.

    I'll be waiting for somebody to send me few hundred thousand gold, since it appears to be "pocket change" for some.

    I was hoping that I wouldn't need to sell my loots from completing Shadowmourne, but oh well. And if that one quote is correct, they'll lower the price to ~20.000 gold and I don't need to sell them.

    Message was clearly given ... if u want benefits, go play horde. It was simply clear result since blizz said there will be vote, cause massive majority of players is horde. Hey who wants some free mount? lets just crush the vote. I bet everyone voted for theirs faction just so they can get something free ingame.
