    Blizzard's daylight robbery - $39.99 for the virtual ticket???

    WTF.

    $39.99 USD for a mount.

    And yeah, the mount is deliberately made so unique that we feel we need to buy it.

    But I could buy Total War Warhammer 2 for that money, or other triple-AAA retail game.

    And remember that this is $39.99 in USD. There's no provisions for local currencies. In some currencies, $39.99 USD is a month's wages.

    Its for the virtual ticket, not the mount. The price has been this way for years though. Nothing to discuss really.
    Its overpriced but if you are just reacting to it now you aren't very astute.

    the virtual ticket has been 40$ for like 8 years now. Try harder in finding something to get outraged about.

    I don't feel the need to buy it, they could charge $1000 if they wanted - you don't need it, therefore they're at liberty to justifiable charge whatever they like

    I agree. They're once again forcing players into uncomfortable decisions.

    Very Blizzlike.

    It's cost that thing for a long time. You're paying for the access to their stream, and the mount and other in-game goodies are just a bonus.

    Oh yes. They are holding a knife to my throat. Telling me to buy it if I want to see my family again

    Such robbery! I mean they are asking me 40$ to see what people will see and hear that paid 200$ for their ticket + 100$ (minimum) a night to stay near the convention + airplane ticket (varying a few hundreads to a thousand $). Yes. They are robbing me.

    Yes. This is made sarcastic

    I'm just glad it is a mount now instead of a pet. Granted, murlocs are cool, but mounts get more use.

    In no actually developed country, is $39.99 equivalent to an entire month's wages.

    Don't be ridiculous.

    Pretty much. My only issues with the virtual ticket are the broadcast quality(every year so far video quality/lag has been pretty bad at times) and Blizzard making specific panels(the most interesting ones) unavailable for virtual ticket. It's basically the price of 2 cinema tickets for 2 evenings of content, seems pretty fair to me.

    Yeah, the making some panels unavailable to virtual ticket holders is bullshit

    Like others said it's been that price for awhile
    Thou I'm pissed that there some panels we couldn't see with the virtual ticket

    Dunno, things are kind of subjective. Wouldn't pay 5$ for that mount myself.
    Also, you are really not supposed to be paying for the mount, it is supposed to be the little free gift you get as thanks for participating.
    Another way you can look at it is paying 25$ for the mount (standard) and 15$ for the virtual ticket (a price I would personally consider fair)

    Good thing they changed it this year, you have access to all stages/panels.
