    I don't have any toys listed on my store. What location are you in?
    Check out my game, Craftsmith, on the Google Play Store!

    I can see them in the US, but I had to log in. They didn't appear in the battle.net app

    edit. I just checked again to get a screenshot and they are gone. It was 2 toys. One changed your appearance and the other was a set of faction themed fireworks you could launch over an enemy corpse. Both were $10

    That's the toy to fund the MDI pool prize I assume.

    It's been announced last month.

    I couldn't find the other toy in the journal, but it seems cash shop toys are on the way.

    i dont have to buy a lot of things.

    that doesn't exactly excuse them adding more shit to the shop.
    there already is enough with mounts and pets, no need to add more to a sub based game.

    Optional toys you don't need, giving no benefits and if you ignore them they won't affect gameplay. They could be $1000 dollars for all I care. If you have even a semblence of self control you know how to put the wallet down. If not then maybe you should seek real help or stupid enough you deserve to be screwed.

    These are to support their eSports program. Proceeds will go towards the prize pool for the Mythic Dungeon Invitational and Arena World Championship.

    Basically you can buy these to increase the payout that will go to the winners of those competitions. Similar idea to the OWL items in Overwatch, and other such items in several other games with major eSports scenes.

    ^ This would be my guess as well

    I agree. I could never begrudge people spending their money on what ever they want but a billion dollar company trumpeting record profits trying to get paying customers to fund their E:Sports event is having a laugh. If instead of saying "A portion of the sale of these toys will contribute to the prize pools for both WoW esports programs" they had said All the profits then i wouldn't find this outrageous.

    Yes but if people don't over react to month old news how will they "Stick it to actiblizz!"

    Blizzard isn't the only company that sells optional in-game goodies for cash. I've never felt obligated to buy anything. Yes, I have bought a few items. No, I didn't need them. Yes, I wanted them. It's really not a big deal.

    It's okay for free games to sell things in an in-game store

    It's not okay for a game that costs money and charges a subscription to sell things in an in-game store
