    This is evidence enough they said they wouldn't sale anything that would give other players advantages over another but here it is.They said they'd never do race or faction change back a couple of years ago.
    With Blizzard never means not this year.

    They have still payed the people working on this new feature with the money that we have all been coughing up to them. People are upset over the fact that they are using company resources on creating ways to get more money out of people instead of allocating those resources in to R&D useful to the entire community.

    The ONLY way them doing this would be justified would be if they hired a whole new group of employees to work on this with the hopes that they would end up making up the spent money from people subscribing to the new service. I HIGHLY doubt they actually took that route and didn't just use people they already had, thus taking away development on content for the game.

    They never said they'd NEVER have race or faction changes. They said they "had no plans" to have race or faction changes.

    And this doesn't give anyone an advantage in-game.

    Those of you who were eating all this up, you reap what you sow, now eat it. Now instead of features that should been in the game years ago (like appearance tab) are now being put on the back burner thanks to you, who knows they will probably charge for that too if it ever comes out.
    Do you realise there are around 4000 people working at Blizzard on WoW? (Some of these are cross-game, work for other games in blizzard too - but its still around 4000 people that work on WoW)...... Do you seriously believe that one small team of people working on something like this pushes back other features (like the appearance tab you mentioned)?

    People (not you I admit) say, "why cant they fix game bugs instead of making this?" etc etc...... but people really should work out that the people that may work on these database applications like the armory, this new AH, pets and mounts etc.... are NOT the same people that work on the "real guts" of the game. What they do DOESNT affect the others working on the game.

    Yeah, what next, Father Christmas is real?

    In a Pay to Play MMO no Content or such things should cost extra Money.
    It's not right.

    It's like having an "All u can eat" Day in a Restaurant and alle u get is water an bread, the good stuff costs extra.
    I would name it Blizzards Ass (Entry looks like an ass) and i bet there will be a hunderts of idiots every fucking day.

    And they all say "Hey that caviar is not from my money, i only pay for the bread man. It's the money from that caviar buyers. Because that bread and water here cost all of my All-u-can-eat-fee"
    German player, sorry for bad grammar.

    Nah. No advantage at all.

    Re: Introducing the Remote Auction House

    I don't see the point of this at all .... what possible use could it be to browse the ah while not being in the ah ? If it was free maybe, but you have to be pretty insane to actually pay for something you can do for free.. especially as it probably works slower then ingame and if your in a location you can't play wow to check on ur auctions, then enjoy not being at home for once...

    So people that were already undercutting you in-game can now do it from their phone?

    ZOMG, the horror.

    Why SHOULD it be free? Why should a multinational, multi billion dollar company make something that they can sell... Free? Don't think their shareholders would like it tbh. Blizzard never make things for free, its pretty much against the ethos of being a commercial entity. Yes, you didnt pay extra for patch 3.2, 3.3 etc etc - and some other things.... But you paid as part of your subscription. So why shouldnt this be incorporated into your subscription too? Because its an extra. You dont need it to play the game. Its a service that some people have asked for (and I remember reading somewhere a while ago people saying "yeah I would pay for that") and Blizzard have delivered it and are going to sell it. Thats what companies do.

    I think people should learn that Blizzard may MAKE games.... but they arent PLAYING a game. They are making money - thats what they exist for. I would also say to all those that say "noone will pay for this, its pointless", that Im sure Blizzards market research department have a good bit more idea than you about what people will pay for.

    Re: Introducing the Remote Auction House

    Its just getting old that they are comming out with a LOT of stuff lately that is being created with the intentions of just getting more money from people. A game is not as fun to me knowing the people running it are only thinking about new ways to get my money.

    If they keep coming out with this stuff at this fast of a pace I doubt I will play too much longer and I am a pretty tolerant person so I would imagine there will be a LOT of people feeling this way.

    And why does the site you link to say the service is not available? Hacked my keys did you?
    I wanna go back to my trainer and learn a new spell in the next expansion! And we all need to be able to fly from day 1 ! (And fly over the Exodar and Silvermoon on our own mounts!)

    they have never said "gear will never be available for money"

    they said they same thing about it that they said about mounts, faction transfers, flying in azeroth, pve to pvp transfers, race changes and class changes (soon*)

    they said they had no plans at this time

    activision is calling the shots now (board of trustees has more activision employees on it than blizzard does) and ALL of these ideas that cost money came AFTER the activision merger.

    this is what activision does. they sell everything eventually.

    they'll start out selling trinkets, then eventually boots/belt then a full set of t14 similar to what you could buy with badges because "it's just badge gear"

    along the way, blizz will have excuses made for it by the bads who started playing during this expansion, i mean, they only know one way to play this game, and it's "buy the raiding gear you need to sit around dalaran in"

    Re: Introducing the Remote Auction House

    i will buy this as often im at work with nothing to do so $3 a month isnt much at all to actually get rid of all this stuff sitting in my bags. Plus more stuff should be bought and sold with this option. I just wish it didnt cost money and that you only had to have like say a level 80 to use it.

    It's optional. You have no need to buy these things other than personal amusement/vanity and they most certainly are not needed to play the game, so what's the problem?

    I, and many others, can play this game just fine by paying the subscription only, no amount of vanity pets or useless addons will change this.
