    Aaaaaah, it makes sense now. I saw someone calling the mount a "stupidity tax", now I know where this meme came from. It's funny, 'cause repeating what you hear streamers say is basically the label for stupidity. Every time you hear people use an expression over and over you can bet some streamer said it.

    you're not arguing against "people who love blizzard or WoW" - you're arguing against the modern casual gamer. this isn't a WoW problem you're broaching, it's a video game industry problem. games are not made for people who want quality or reciprocal value anymore - you'd be willfully ignoring the explosion of MTX and mobile games over the last 20 years if you denied that. they're made for these casual tools who will buy whatever, whenever, at whatever price point the publisher needs to make investors happy.

    these mounts and every variation of garbage loot box in every game are a permanent fixture of video gaming today. blizzard wont change course on this because it's profitable as shit and personality types that wouldn't touch games 30 years ago have gotten social consent to play them without shame. there's a market for people who breathe through their noses and ALSO enjoy playing games but it's niche and small and that's where your energy should be pointed - not here.
    I mean, you are entirely correct about that MTX is here to stay, and while WoW is far away from being worst, they will also increase the amount of MTX in the years to come.

    It's a successfull business model that are going towards the new, younger gamers that are all for rewards and getting new things on the fly. It's a reason mobile games are successfull and thats because they are very rewarding to do. And with some extra bucks here and there they get even more rewards. It's quite interesting to see how gamers have changed the last 10-15 years and, sadly or sadly not, MTX is here to stay.

    So I agree, don't fight us, the WoW players. The task is so much greater than that.

    i really don't get the anger towards this. at the end of the day it's "dont like it, dont buy it"

    one of those 4 step things. step 1: don't like product... step 2: don't buy product... step 3: ??? ... step 4: profit

    am i missing a step 3?

    AZ went from an interesting likable youtuber to someone who makes money of negativity and outrage culture against SJW. I don't like storemounts. never bought one never will. Makes my game not worse because of it.

    I do get if people dislike it. But in that case... most of us have the 6 month sub anyway so you just get this weird mount for free on top.

    Just be happy, that we are not like Elder Scrolls, Final Fantasy or EVERY other MMORPG.

    Microtransactions in non singleplayer games are here to stay. Get used to it or stop playing. Not being pesimistic... just realistic.

    The most interesting thing about this thread is that apparently there are people who sub for 6 months at a time. Why? There hasn't been a patch in a very, very long time with enough content to justify staying subbed for 6 consecutive months.
    The Naaru may not have forgotten the Draenei, but Blizzard sure as hell has.

    There are a hundred reasons, depends on who you ask. I have a lot of alts, I don't play for many hours a week. And I don't think unsubbing and resubbing every month isn't worth the money I save.
    Mother pus bucket!

    How about being a member in a raiding guild and just being interested in playing the game on a regular basis, not just for the endgame content but for other things?

    I haven't bought a sub with actual money since the WoW token came out, but I may just pick up a 6-month sub to save a little money and my gold and get this mount for the fun of it. I truly hope it pisses the lot of you off that I enjoy WoW and free promotions
    Shut your goddamn mouth, Gene!

    Nah, not going to watch that. I'm an adult you see and not a child and I don't need some youtube person telling me the tactics behind business.

    It's also quite ironic that without clickbait bullshit this youtuber won't make any money. If there is anything i'm not buying, its these sorts of videos.

    You know who decides what i buy? Me.

    Just like how a lot of people said they employed the AH mount tactic to get people to buy more tokens. You know what happened with me? Nothing, not one tiny bit of difference did it make to me and how i play and pay for this game.

    These youtubers and anyone who listens and believes in this drivel can get fucked. Become your own person and make your own decisions.

    One thing assmontard won't understand is that it just appears in your gifts if you are already on a 6 month sub. Which again saves money over monthly. In that circumstance the mount is free and your sub is less. Speaking of subs the only dumb tax is subbing to a "content" creator...

    Ohhh him.....do not like him anymore...he has gone full neckbeard anti everything. Forgets to state facts, pulls things out of porportion etc etc.


    Think soulsobreeze had a better answer to it. Watch his video instead.


    Its a loyality reward. And people have still not proven that it really brings in that many players.

    And i still standby my opinion. If you play with tokens. You have enough gold for this mount.
    And if you play with subsciption, you will either play a month or 2 . and then quit again. So why cry if you do not play.
    Or if you play 12 months a year, then you will have a 6 month sub anyway. Because its cheaper.

    First, he has the very warped perspective of someone who only ever plays wow to criticize it. He quit during the entirety of Legion because there literally wasn't enough to bitch about, and came back to BFA solely it seems because there were things to complain about. That is very, very strange and suggests a very cynical agenda.

    Second, and more seriously, I don't think people understand how much of the content he used to propel him into his current situation was information stolen from smaller youtubers. He makes Warcraft Bible look like a paragon of virtue.

    And don't tell me Blizzard are bad he makes a valid point...that is not the issue here. You need to find a better poster boy for intelligent criticism. There are a ton of better critics. I'm sick of people doing free promotional work for this black hole of cynicism and plagiarism.
    wow....thought i was the only one who did not think that much of him.

    Yeah...he has gone full neckbeard. Anti everything. Forgets to state facts. Only see's the bad. He acts like he is a soulsobreeze (wow) or yongyah ( gaming)..
    But he is more like a theqautering (gaming).

    Where is the rant against that? Why the store mount. And why this one? Also like @Dakhath I just got it because I have been on 6 month sub for ages...since that already saves money
    shhhh people here don't like to hear Blizzard is a business! They think Blizzard is their best friend who has utterly betrayed them!!!!!! RAAAAAAGE!!!!

    I think the important thing to remember is that everyone is not same. While you may not find enough of WoW's content sufficient to keep you entertained permanently, others will.

    Personally I have been subscribed, non-stop, since I started playing the game. I have never felt like there isn't enough for me to do. If anything, I often just find myself overwhelmed with too much stuff to do. So I actually quite enjoy the lulls between raid tiers because it gives me time to go back and catch up on some of the stuff that I didn't get around to earlier.

    And if you're probably not going to unsubscribe anyways - then buying a 6 month sub makes perfect sense because it saves you around a month's subscription anyway.
