    lol what? you think a mount for 40$ is to bring players back, and you think legion is doing worse then Wod?
    you are really naive.

    And I would just like to point out here that much of the major announcements will be at the Opening ceremony.

    Which is , has been and probably always will be a FREE stream.

    Not where I live if you're paying adult ticket prices

    If you see a movie at Village cinemas and get a popcorn, drink and an icecream you're looking at 40 bucks.

    40 bucks to watch their adds, sounds resonable!

    If you are going to pay 40$ for a mount you'll use 2 days and then realize you're just proving to people you have done a dumb purchase when you use it and see so many people have it... you're as dumb as I was when I bought the Celestial Steed.

    Never again.

    Aside from stream lag and quality the panels being covered was fairly good in the early years with many just being available later. Last few years it seems far more panels are just out right not being recorded. I would understand if Blizzard was trying to get people to go to the convention as an exclusivity perk but this is not the case as many people who can and would go cant get tickets due to how popular it is. I am no longer so interested in the main events as they are highly publicized. I want to see the stuff that rarely gets covered or some journalist covers a week later.

    At this point the stream does not have much value to me. The cosmetics feel like the main selling point and I do not care to drop money on cosmetics.

    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.
    lol I haven't seen the mount yet, but can pretty much guarantee I'll feel no need to buy it. If they did make it special, good on them; they should make stuff special if they want their event to be special. As for the price of such things, I am amazed at the price of so many things, I am beyond being shocked. Have you seen the price of concert tickets lately? Movie tickets?

    Has it even been a month since the last store mount? Nice to see that my $15 plus expansion payments makes not one, but three high quality mounts this month, unavailable in-game.

    Limited time "store mount" smh. Worst of both worlds.

    But as greedy as Blizzard has always been, I can't blame them too much. Why settle for $65 for all the content when you can make them pay so much more? If it works, it works.

    But it's the game we play, so I can't be too salty about it.

    Ok, I just looked, and I'm pretty confident I can get by without them.
    It's all just entertainment, pixels on a screen. Make your choices like you do for any other pixels, whether it's pay-per-view or game subscriptions: If you can afford it and feel you'd enjoy it, treat yourself! If you can't afford it or don't think it would add much to your day, let it go. If this is your biggest dilemma in life, kudos. Things must be going well for you.

    Do you get both mounts? or do you have to choose?

    Last store mount was nearly 3 months ago and is the only one added in Legion.

    And who is making anyone pay anything? Blizzard don't have a gun to your head here.

    Also worth noting Blizzard released something like twenty-plus mounts you an acquire in-game with patch 7.3.

    And god knows how many pets.

    I find it amusing how people bitch about 1 store mount and pet yet Argus added at least 20 or so mounts this time around along with an array of pets.

    If sub numbers are fine then they should have reskinned another murloc pet for blizzcon and put that mount on the cash shop to take advantage of the 12 million that are still paying for the game, right???? maybe your avatar should be something different...

    Bought a few tokens in advance a while ago when they were ~110k which is a trifling amount of gold. Get a mount, get some other shit in other games at some point I'm sure, get to watch a few streams and shit so I don't care. Is gold really that hard for people to get? I mean yeah I paid for it with real moneys once and would never again but gold is pretty worthless.

    Help me out here, this is just... i am too tired to handle this.

    I don't understand how anyone can complain when you can have it all for free. Just farm gold for a week in wow and you can buy literally anything digital their store is offering.

    Jeez, people this days... is this a milennial perk or something? Sure, everything should be handled for free to you by Blizz just because you're addicted to their games. (no, actually not).
    "Patch 7.2 is the biggest content patch ever created by Blizzard" bwahahahahahahaha thanks for a good laugh guys, yeah, alongside with 6.1, aha

    Actually that is what I thought when I heard the new iPhone is 1399 Euros. And of cause the constant hyperbole and taking things out of context. Let us see...no, it is NOT 30 Euros for a mount. It is not even 30 Euros for TWO Mounts (which you get indeed, though only usable by one faction at a time).

    But hey..it has been pointed out before...why do I even try? No man's opinion on this forum has ever been swung by another's statements.

    "But it isn't free, it takes up my time in which I could do other stuff in game. I will be behind in my raid. I could do m+ to get my BiS legendary."

    Oh wait..I triggered the legendary system haters now ^^

    (Actually it really isn't free....if I grind gold for an hour I could make 30 Euros in my job at the same time - as with all things gold related. 30 minutes work = 1 month sub fee. Can't make 240k gold that fast.... - but I get what you say...)
