    It is a major part of the game. if not the most major. it keeps dungeon groups going. it keeps professions running. It connects people.

    Good. It hurts the third party illicit gold sellers. I hope this comes to other regions.

    Kinda impossible, because I don't have a character there - but also...I guess even my 2 million gold wouldn't last me that much. Also..it is all useless in 6-8 months because next x-pac

    But all that (me responding to a guy and you quoting me) is about retail shennanigans

    If its not content then what the hell have i been doing this entire 10 days?

    Ive been farming HOURS for the devilsaur set
    I even paid tanks to tank with this money i hardly earned.

    Yes, i dont have the best farm in the game.
    My farm is honest work of 40 gold per hour.

    Not exactly the best...but what is this if not content?

    If you can tell me with a straight face "farming is not content" then i assume in Battle for Azeroth there is next to ZERO content.

    The hilarious part here is always the "cash grab" part. Because at the end of the day the customer has to go through a process of actually spending that money. Nobody puts a gun to your head to buy it.

    Is the next iphone also a "cashgrab" that you feel you need to protect ppl from?

    There's always differences.

    Do you remember back during Cata and Mists when they had 2 lockouts a week?
    You are right, but the people that will carry this thread are only interesting in flaming one side of the "durrr my version of da game better din yer version of the game" debates / trolls. So pull up the popcorn and watch the cat fight.

    Nice. Finally I'll have something to spend my thousands of gold on.

    Create a character and move it to [Capital City]?

    That aside, with 2M Gold, you can probably buy like 1-2 HC Boosts, which is like ~6 Items via PL, not counting bonusrolls.

    Blizzard doesn't even have a hand in the Chinese market and that market has been full of region-exclusive deals and designs for as long as I can remember.

    Remember when selling XP potions or TCG loot boxes ruined the western market? Yeah, neither do I.

    Yeah, better spend more time arguing over p2w without taking a look what's actually happening within the game.

    I laugh at the "cash grab." arguments.

    It's business, everything is a cash grab. If you're not out there to make as some people sarcastically say "ALL THE MONEY." you're failing. Yes even your precious little local store is hoping for all the money. They just not found a way to do it yet.

    It's probably fair to point out that at least for sustaining a subscription the token already exists for classic. You just need to play enough in retail to do it.

    It's basic economy...gear is the only meaningful thing apart from riding/mounts you can get on Classic. Once tokens become available there will be easy gold exchange between whales and gold makers. In the beggining the prices will skyrocket due to whales wanting ez gear and no/small amount of carry groups and then when organised communities flourish and the average whale is done with gearing chars prices will flatten and steadily drop.

    Kotick is once again sacrificing the most dedicated players experience in the name of appeasing shareholders and his own pockets, no more, no less and only half a year went by

    I thought this was a troll website with the way everything was worded "classic nostalgia" maybe it was just me

    2. The only real way to get rid of illigal gold sellers. (And thus botters and account hackers (if that is even a thing in Classic? For sure was a huge problem in Vanilla))

    3. Doesn't really harm anyone. Farming gold in Classic isn't exactly difficult. Most classes can do 60-100g/h farms.

    Adding game tokens to the game was the best move Blizzard ever did.
    Translation: Blizzard does everything right, you're all just whining.

    And I guess you'd also make the argument that fishing in the canals of Stormwind is meaningful content simply because you can also do it.
