    An increase of 10€ more over last year price (which was already expensive imho) is too much for me. Either the rewards this year are really good (and I mean, REALLY good) or I'm not buying it for sure.

    That is pushing it too far with the cost
    Unless two really epic mounts is up for grabs, I will not get the purchase this year

    The Horde will get a pet-Brutosaur, that can be clicked to open the Auction House. This special Brutosaur will also stand upright and have golden eyes.
    The Brutosaur will be usable 2 weeks before the Horse, and the Horse will be locked behind a gearscore. The /mountspecial of the Horse will say "The Horde is waiting for you!"

    Joking aside, I was comfortable paying the fee last year for what were - despite my other complaints about the game - stellar mounts. If the price goes up the WoW in-game(s) - yeah, I said (s) - better be really good. Going to wait and see on this one.

    I feel the same way. Bought last year's virtual ticket only for the mounts, though I did watch Blizzcon too.

    I am passing on the VT untill I see the rewards we'll get in the various Blizzard games.

    Am I missing something. Where is the bag?

    Instant bought the ticket.

    I buy them mainly for ingame collections. Watching stream directly is bonus.

    Nope, skipping the virtual ticket for the first time. When the only reason for increasing the price is greed, then blizzard won't get more money from me.

    Yes inflation is not a thing, nope.

    Just because the US is suffering due to stagnating salaries doesnt mean the rest of the world is.

    For me it isnt, was the price increased? It is, is the price worth it? And yes, it's still worth it. So I buy :P

    This is just too much for a virtual ticket. Last year was already pushing it. I rather buy a new game for that money.
  1. Hell-Nicø's Avatar
    Can't believe they have increased the price AGAIN, and by a HUGE margin!

    Remember when Blizzcon was a celebration of the company and the players?
    Yeah, good times.

    Nowadays it's a cashgrab celebration of the whales.
    Is it worth screwing your players just to make a bit more cash blizz? Don't you already make enough cash?

    I guess not. Once they get too big companies never make enough money.

    Are you seriously saying that a 25% or so increase in the price of the ticket is justifiable, especially when as a wow fan apart from raid content there is most certainly not gonna be any new reveals?? I happily bought it last year but this time it's really taking the piss. Content and in-game loot would have to be seriously exclusive to justify the price and we all know that content will be available accessible here for free almost within the hour so most of us would essentially be paying $50 just for in-game loot which is a hell of a lot to pay for.
