    they make a ton of money off cosmetics and services. no one really cares. you are not forced to buy anything, and none of it has an effect on your gameplay. I dare say they make more off services and cosmetics than they do off subscriptions.. so you can expect that trend to continue and increase for all future games.

    Getting mad at some universe that promotes murder, extreme violence, mafias, economic disruption and ruining entire familys, isnt exactly in the same league of store mounts and cosmetics in a video game.

    How does something like store mounts effects the overall experience of the community?

    Do you even know the number of mounts never managed to arrive at the store?

    Can you even grasp the concept that blizzard have artists drawing mounts and all kind of assets everyday that never get introduced to the game?
    Is that also effecting your overall experience?

    Why am I even answering to inexperienced radicals like you...

    Optional Cosmetic Feature is optional. Honestly i wish they would have more variety of things available. Give me POE style wings or glows (though not to the eyecancer level that some POE ones go to). I like supporting games that i enjoy, and if i had something i was interested in i would buy it.
    We live in an era of "me versus them", an era where something is done that you don't like means you are persoonally attacked. People whine too much.
    Let us play video games and be happy.

    With that logic and die hard fans defending Blizzard on everything it's a wonder Blizzard doesn't already charge extra for higher graphic settings.

    OMG 13:37 - Then Jesus said to His disciples, "Cleave unto me, and I shall grant to thee the blessing of eternal salvation."

    And His disciples said unto Him, "Can we get Kings instead?"

    Never seen someone define a mount or cosmetic character appearance as graphics fidelity....it's almost like they are two entirely unrelated features................ I don't see anyone crying foul with FF14 and its cosmetics, but if blizzard wants to make a single pony or dragon "SHAME SHAME SHAME!" People need a new hobby other than crying on forums.

    It's the hypocrisy of these forums. If Blizzard does it "EVIL!", if literally anyone else does it, "hm, that is a pretty good idea". Fuck you can't log into FF14 without some sort of cash shop info.

    I hate that people just bend over and take it with the "its optional" shit. Removing things from a game to sell, Absolutely pathetic the state of gaming now. I can't wait for the next crash so we can clear out a few of these greedy corporations.

    Idling is one thing, removing mounts from the game to sell is another.
    BfA would not have "omg store mounts I'm mad so here's why" attitude towards game if BfA was actually a decent expansion. It is a fine, non-invasive, albeit greedy strategy.

    There are so many other reasons why Activi$ion Bli$$ard is not producing top-notch content. Store Mounts is not one of them.

    I've always been against cosmetic microtransactions and I'll never buy any of them, but lately I've been wondering if cosmetic microtransactions are really that bad for the game and its community. I mean, if there wouldn't be people currently who spend their cash on cosmetic microtransactions, chances are that Blizzard would come up with much more nastier practices to try and milk us out, for example by increasing subscription costs or game-affecting microtransactions. Therefor I'm glad it's still limited to cosmetics and I'm glad that there are people out there buying the cosmetics so that Blizzard won't pull out tricks on me instead.

    While I don't go around and complaining about store stuff at every time, the only gripe I have about them (and this goes for any game too) is that if it's offered on the store it should be obtainable in-game somehow.
