    7-Days Free! WoD Marketing move. - FOR EVERYONE!

    Good Afternoon!


    Hello everyone, just a bit ago I received the following information from Blizzard about their 7-Day Free WoD Marketing. Feel free to post your own comments and information on what you think of this marketing move for Warlords of Draenor and how you think it will impact the entirety of the new Expansion.

    With the email was an HTML version of it, below is a mockup of the original version of the email). Hope you enjoy your free 7 days of Game time!

    - Yes they are giving everyone 7 days free, I've clicked the link and claimed my 7 days ontop of the subscription I have and it's bumped me up to 35 days left on my thing. I believe this will be a big boost people wanting to check things out again and try them before the expansion drops itself.

    Wow can you believe the nerve of Blizzard to market a new product!? Absolutely disgusting.

    I get 7 days free every now and then anyway, it's not like it's new. Been getting these emails for at least the past 5 years when I'm not subbed.

    Well the general concept of it is that they are giving everyone 7 days of free game time. (I'm already subbed and received the news letter)

    I didn't expect to get this at all, as my time ran out like two days ago, but I totally did lol. Thanks for making me check my WoW account e-mail!

    You are welcome, hopefully a lot of people decide to check out the new and interesting material for Warlords of Draenor.

    Just got one with 17 days left on my account. I buy month to month game time from the store, and sure enough after clicking the link in the email my days left went from 17 to 24. Was surprised it worked with time left on my account.

    Yes, but so what?

    It's like making a topic saying "hey guys I was watching a tv programme and there were ad's in the middle".

    I am sure this is an intended marketing move too! Give everyone in World of Warcraft 7 days free and keep the sub numbers a bit longer! I believe they've done this to ensure everyone is pushed into Warlords of Draenor or at least close enough to have a nice release.

    Make sure you read the entire post, the 7 days of free time is aimed at EVERYONE, this means those with current subscriptions can grab 7 days of free time. Which is worthwhile.

    Ouch, maybe wait a bit and then check back later? If you don't get it by tomorrow night I'd contact Blizzard (You might be opted out from receiving news letters)
