    Yeah...call out companies for their bullshit. This btw why we have things like consumer watch in my country. And there are obviously so many threads here calling companies out for their bullshit daily.

    Let's see how much good it does. Which takes us back to "don't just mindlessly shell out your money and take responsibility for your actions if you consider yourself a grown up that is capable of making their own decisions"

    I started a new character and chose Legion has my leveling zone. It made me do the pre quests and even the pre legion scenario and now it wants me to do the artifact weapon stuff....can none of this be skipped? It’s taking a ridiculous amount of time just to get started here.

    But yeah. Just a blatant misleading commercial emailing. A clickbait.
    We will get to fight versus the darkness once more. But this patch was not to do that. That event (not patch) was happening later even when it was initially released in the news. The initial release never said that upon release of the pre-patch that we would be fighting the scourge. It had always been scheduled to happen closer to the actual release of the expansion.

    You are more than welcome to call your bank for a chargeback. If they grant you that you should keep in mind that Blizzard will ban your account from use until you pay for the amount that was charged back. That has happened to just about every single person who has done that exact thing through their bank. Again its not Blizzard's fault that you failed to read what they said nor did you click the links they provided that explained in more detail the timeframe of when stuff will be happening nor did you read ANY of the news posted on this very site you made a post in here to complain about how you got "lied to" from Blizzard. Your choice to be ignorant =/= being lied to or deceived.

    Your lack of reading comprehension is not blizzards problem, nor is anyone here blizzard so wtf do you expect us to do.

    Did you bother clicking on the link that provides you with all the info you desired? Or just bitching to bitch? I mean it was on the front page of MMO-champ saying the content will be next week. Seriously. The info is there, why do so many refuse to absorb it?

    I just got it today and it is definitely a super scammy email. Then again, I expect nothing else from modern Blizzard.
    Only someone in complete denial can pretend that's not what they meant to do. They knew exactly what they were doing with this scammy email.

    If you read the email there is nothing scammy at all. Yeah the headline is a bit misleading, but the body of the email explains what's going on pretty spot on. Reading is important.

    Sure, let's do this:

    Subject: Fight the Scourge in the Shadowlands Pre-expansion Update
    Body:
    Buddy, Sylvanas Windrunner bested the Lich King atop Icecrown Citadel, destroying the Helm of Domination. Now the master of the Scourge no longer has control over his minions, so it falls on you to stop them before it's too late.

    The Shadowlands pre-expansion update is now available, and heroes like you are needed to fight against darkness once more. System updates such as new character customisation options, level and stat readjustments, and more are available now to all players. Watch our Survival Guide video for more details or read the patch notes and get ready for battle!
    Subject and the first paragraph are talking about fighting the scourge.
    Second paragraph mentions other systems "and more". And doesn't mention anything that is available later.
    That's super scammy and super scummy behaviour. If USA was a proper country with proper consumer protection laws, they would've been done for false advertising.

    Not a lie. You interpreted it wrong.

    Prrove it. Show us you link backing up your accusations.

    It's not a scummy e-mail. YOu are interpreting it in the way that allows you to make that false claim. You are pushing the narrative you want to push.

    If you get this upset over one little email, you must be very new to the internet. This may help:

    There is no Nigerian prince that will give you any money.

    Nothing is wrong with your computer, and you don't have to call Microsoft to have them fix it.

    You don't have an encrypted message from someone you've never heard of, so you don't have to worry about losing out if you don't click on something before it's too late.

    Hope that keeps you well rested and stress free.
    Still calling them out, one infraction at a time.

    Anyone know if you have to be max level to do the pre-event? Are the daily quests open to sub-50s and can you buy the "catch up" gear (for transmog) without being 50? Thanks.

    Edit: Also, if I collect the Alliance pieces for transmog does it register as the Horde pieces too or would I have to get both factions separately?

    "People with depression score higher on tests of realism. Intelligence is positively correlated with mental illness and suicide. What this indicates is that if the mind understands too much about reality, it wants to destroy itself. Human life is existential horror."

    It doesn't say that anywhere though. It implies that it happening right now.
