    I feel bad for you guys, I really do. This game just isn't worth the cost increase. Well, I don't feel it's worth the original cost to begin with, so raising it is just that much worse. This is going to chase off even more players, and Blizzard is really getting down to the point where they can't afford to lose much more. I wonder if this price increase has anything to do with the loss of players they just experienced?
    Simple thing is, if they really wanted it to be "the same" they could just make all transactions based in EU be through the Euro only and stop all GBP transactions. It wouldnt cost them anything to do so either. Its a very visible fuck you to the UK player base to try and appease the cry baby EU player base like Lyandria who has their panties in a twist because they pay more, and seem to think that people should just roll over to an 11% price increase

    Yeah very mature of yourself calling people young, you are a hypocrite.

    Okay, lets hold the discussion back to a more civilized tone. This isn't about nation bashing or user flaming. Would advise to to carry on flaming discussions either.

    Stop with the condescension as-well you arrogant prick. For someone claiming to be "30" you sure as hell post like a sexually frustrated teenager
    Your posts don't make you look anything but a teenager either. Do you really have to call people pricks and dicks?

    You could essentially consider it a form of annual pass where the only perk is a sub cost that stays the same ^^

    I didn't claim to be anything else.. and fair enough you have a point. But stupid people piss me off, especially when they actually have no argument and try to make one out of nothing.

    Wouldn't feel it anyways. Been subscribed almost non-stop since I started. 1-2 months of no sub in total of my soon 10 years. Could work around subscriber numbers, though, I don't believe so either. They know they can run the game on cheaper prices, if it is going so bad with funds, I would expect a lowered price for a steady flow.

    As well, put previous topic to rest, guys.

    Definitely seems odd that the UK is targeted for a price increase, but no one else is. Makes me wonder if other nations will be targeted soon.

    It means Brits will pay the same as the rest of the EU, the sky is not falling.

    If you are going to go down that path, you should do it wholesomely, not partially.

    What about the fact that 10 years before, World of WarCraft was estimated to maintain a steady 400k subscribers, and hopefully peak at 2 million at sometime in the future? Yet, we all know what happened.

    While the expenses of the game increased along with its popularity, the profits vastly outnumbered the increase in expenses.

    So the game has been far more profitable than ever even imagined, for 10 whole years.

    By that logic, your logic of equalizing, there should have been a decrease in price years ago; one that would still be in effect to this day in some form. And we all know how that turned out as well. So there is not much point in comparing things based on criteria that not even the people in charge use, right?

    It is quite obvious what the criteria is: the more profits the better. And while the game is on a decline, it is still an immense source of income. A small increase in pricing, multiplied by the millions of customers it will affect, makes for a lot of additional profit. A little bit from here, some from there, and so on, and you can at least attempt to milk the game some more, to partially make up for lost profit. Not because "the game is dying" or something like that, but because that is how business operate most of the time.

    i don't know where this increase is coming from and i totally don't agree with it.I am ok with prices going up if it is for all of us but atm it seems more like an attack against uk more than anything else >.> I also don't understand why the prices in uk for a sub is more than a time and a half more than usa. Money is money devaluing a currency and pricing it higher without a reason is nothing more but pure greed and bs decision which will add nothing but fuel to the ppl that are already fed up with being mistreated by blizzard.

    It's just a cash grab by Blizzard, nothing more.

    No content for 14 months, 800k players leaving -> np lets milk the cash from EU

    This pretty much shows who should pay less and who should pay more.

    You can look at it from 300 different angles. Still doesn't change the fact that the UK paid less than the EU. From a consumer pov, it's only fair.
