    Why dont major sport institutions like for example fifa introduce buyable medals after a world cup?

    Because they have some actual backbone and they know it would take away from the people who got first place and actually earned their reward

    "but maaaaaaaaam - middle scholders also pay to play football in their respective clubs - they should recieve exactly the same rewards as the best footballers in the world who worked their ass off for those rewards"

    No. Just no. Go home.

    Short answer: no
    Long answer:noooo
    Only way I will tolerate putting transmog on shop is that it will be created by community and you actually pay for "outsider" artist work like in DotA 2 or with tokens that can also be earned in game. But I would rather put them as achievement rewards such as glory of hero or even simple exploration or so.

    Nah. Old mog sets are already easy enough to farm. Just turn on your favorite music or radio show and run some old content.

    That would esentially mean being able to buy them for gold. I would say good idea.

    I have no problem at all with cosmetic items for sale. They literally don't effect gameplay. If you don't like them don't buy them. Yes - the more prestigious stuff should remain difficult to obtain within the game only to retain its prestige.

    I'm guilty of buying damn near every glam in the mogstation for FFXIV so if they added in some outfits that made my elf look cute as fuck, like miniskirts n what not, then yes i would throw my money at blizzard xD

    No thanks.

    I don't mind a few mounts here and there but that is about it. If you have more money than time, get the RAF transmog to unlock. That should fulfill your desire for a purchased transmog. I believe it is something that should be obtained in-game.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    And right now, it's a buttload of stuff that I can do in the game, but just don't have the time to. I have like 300 mounts I can collect, thousands of transmogs, several pets, lots of achievements I can attempt to hunt, or work more on my gameplay on my different toons.

    As long as whatever is hitting the store is not affecting gameplay whatsoever, I don't really care. I will definately be going berserk if gear with stats or mounts with extra speed is being sold there. Other than that, I don't see how the store in any way really affects players outside of a monetary way to get a cool looking mount/pet/transmog or toy...which none really affect gameplay at all.

    If there is anything I want gone, it's the WoW token, as I think it causes more issues than it solves.

    I'm strictly against it. Only way I would tolerate it is if they stopped ripping us off with subscriptions. Not to mention all the basic customer service stuff they demand an arm and a leg for. It's not my fault that their fucking systems cause people to aggregate on a few large realms, why the fuck should I have to pay extra to make the basic service Blizzard offers usable?

    I'd like to have that, but the transmog sets sold in the shop should be exclusive and definitely not obtainable in game otherwise, else it would be pretty much pointless, at least to me. As it's cosmetic only they also could go nuts, with sets costing $1000 and more.

    This should provide an additional source of income for game development, provided that the community does not view it as entirely negative and therefor severely harming the game's reputation.

    I'm frankly indifferent to the cash shop.
    I have the Silvermoon armor set and my Phoenix, so I'm all set for the foreseeable future.

    It might not affect you but it affects a lot of other people.

    it seems like your argument here is that since it doesnt affect you personally it doesnt matter?

    I'm not really sure i get what you are trying to say otherwise

    They have this in many other games.

    The difference is that those games are all F2P.

    Or lets double up on that. You can spend real money to buy tokens to change to in-game gold to buy literally everything in the game. The best gear? Just get a token and get a Mythic guild to carry you. PvP ranks and mounts? Just use real money.

    See that shiny Mythic only mount that used to only be available to the top 5% of the playerbase? You can have that, with WoW tokens and a carry.
    But the token dilema is different. You can obtain the item in-game without paying for it. If it's shop exclusive then you have to pay extra.

    Token carries are fine.

    Sooo your argument is: actually playing the game for a rare drop isn't fun, but entering your creditcard number into the store page is peak gaming experience?

    I'll give you a chance to reconsider this stance before making fun of you

    After the helm disaster, I don't see that happening any time soon. Unless the game actually goes f2p at one point.

    But what if? No idea....I likely won't spend money on it.

    No. Hell no.

    Mounts and pets and toys are more than enough. And frankly, they should cut back on store mounts. I'm fine with 6-month sub rewards, but those shouldn't also be on the store then. 1 store mount/year sounds fine.

    That's up by 13 since I last counted them in 8.2, and more than Classic has in total server count. Retail servers have higher pop capacity. Just a note to combat "ClAsSiC hAs AlL TeH PlAyErS"-derps.

    Flash news: they do effect gameplay. When your reward for completing an achievement is the 14th default brown horse mount, meanwhile for money you can buy the coolest mounts, that's the literal definition of effected gameplay. It's so sad that we are at a point where companies brainwashed the masses into thinking that visual progression and rewards isn't gameplay, they are not part of the game, but something they should pay extra for

    10 years on this forum and this has to be one of the most pathetic statements I have ever read. Legit people like you ruined the community.

    on topic,

    Personally I only own 1 pet from the store. Got it gifted from a blizzard employee when I requested a friend get given 24 hours play time so I could trade him my gold for a sub. Not overly fond of shops in games, especially when its not a free to play model.

    That being said, I wouldn't say I wouldn't spend irl cash if a specific set took my fancy. While I'm all for everyone minding their own dammed business when it comes to what people want to wear / x mog, I would say the sets would need to be exclusive and unqiue. Not just recolours of current mythic sets.
