    I've been buying boosts since they went to lvl 90, and tokens from the day they released. I've only added 4 of the 17 pages of purchase history. Everything I do is legit since Blizz gets paid.






    This doesn't even count the 100 or so I've purchased since March.

    Who said you would be banned for it? lol, no one said that buying boosts or tokens is an exploit that is bannable. What are you even talking about?
    Well, you need to find the link to the video, cause anyone can claim anything is said. As for the 2nd part, people claim is it cheating, but wouldn't I get banned if it were?

    How can skipping 110 levels and/or buying in game gold not be cheating at the game?
    Ways to cheat:

    gold hack
    codes
    pay Chinese for gold
    pay Chinese to power level
    flying hack
    speed hack
    duping
    exploits
    take advantage of a glitch

    Ways to not cheat:

    Use Blizzard approved services

    A fool and his money are soon parted.

    Lets see here, you are paying extra money to play less of a game you are paying to pay - Genius.

    If paying the Chinese for gold or to power level is cheating the game then doing the same or similar is cheating the game. The fact that Blizzard allow makes zero difference to the game or any other player you gain an advantage over. Why are you having trouble with this simple concept.

    Not everyone has deep pockets like I do. This is my hobby, so I spend my money as I please. But hey, thanks for stopping by.

    Not a hard concept to understand.
    Regardless of how it is obtained the intention and effect on the game is the same - game play is skipped to the purchasers advantage and that is commonly known as cheating.

    You want to waste your money thats up to you, just remember you are cheating the game and ultimately yourself.

    The only "cheat" I feel is how I am cheated of telling you what I really think of you and your opinion. Aside from that, every day is a sunny day in WoW. The boosts are fantastic and the tokens keep adding to my mountains of gold.

    None of those names mean much to me.

    Its just odd ppl complain about something thats been in the game for a few years in a legit way. And in the game since vanilla in a nonlegit way.
