    Also, not sure why they thought this stupid crap was a good look. Who does it look good on other than Night Elves?

    Ah well it's actually just the OP that rushed this and made these sceenshots I guess. I thought this was official marketing material. It shows it on whatever character you are logged in on, so it's not someone at Blizzard thinking that this would sell more of them that way (not that it looks much better on community favorite models), that makes it alot less degenerate and more misguided .

    So do whales, and addicted, not use 6 month subs? It will take a lot for Blizzard to make more than they gave away. Just for examples lets say there are 500,000 subscribers using 6 month blocks. That is $10 million dollars of extra revenue they lost out on by including it in a 6 month subscription. They are not exploiting anyone.

    And yet that hasn't happened yet. This isn't even the first transmog sold on the shop. The game still has cool transmogs. The game still has cool mounts.

    I have only one question:

    Are the profits from this cosmetic set going 100% to keeping the european Blizzard branch open, and all its employees paid? Because otherwise, Blizzard REALLY needs to stop with the cash grab stuff.

    I honestly don't believe Blizzard could pay me real $$$ to xmog that Reices pieces butterfly wing vomit outfit. It's almost hard to believe someone at Blizzard thought that xmog would be desired.

    A bit druidish for my taste. Nice try though.

    Blizzard literally just eliminated paid appearance changes and gave that all completely for free to all players and people will still scream "cash grab!" anytime Blizzard does anything. You can't fix stupid, eh?
    Shut your goddamn mouth, Gene!

    You mean the branch of redundant employee's that was closing anyways until Brexit and a Pandemic changed plans? It isn't a cash grab if they are giving millions away for free. But don't let logic derail the hate.

    You don't understand, there are ZERO cool looking mounts in the game, they are all in the shop you see! And just like how you see the Yeti costume everywhere you will see this too! The helmets are still used by everyone! Ahhhh!

    Let's hope they never go the DBD route and start making super expensive xmogs that you cannot split up and calling them legendary.

    Attention all members of staff, corporate asks that in these trying pandemic times we stay safe and avoid spreading the virus, therefore please remain at your desks at all times, you ARE allowed to contact friends and family using company phones, but you must always maintain productivity. Leaving your desk will result in a written warning, and leaving the office will result in immediate termination.

    That's the "reward" for the 6 month sub? LOL that is ugly as sin and looks more like a punishment.

    I'm on a 6 month sub and got it for free.

    LMAO, I think the good artists at Blizzard left for lunch so they gave the job to the janitor with a closet full of Hentai magazines.

The more these alternative measures succeed, the less 'safe' the development team needs to be to secure that profit. This leads to more artistic freedom and creative control for the dev team.
    I got this crazy idea...maybe they would make more profit if they made the GAME MORE FUN.

    ...that's my point. FUN doesn't sell subscriptions, because the defintion of FUN varies. They COULD make a generic MMORPG that's kinda fun for everyone, or they could make the game they want, invent crazy new systems, drastic story changes, wild things that are VERY fun but only for a few. If the cash shop brings in the money, they can make a better game for less subscribers. Separate BUSINESS Blizzard from Development Blizzard in your mind. If the Cash Shop makes Business Blizzard money, they will leave Development Blizzard alone.

    I would have a stronger opinion about this if I cared for this look at all.

    FUN sold millions and millions of subscriptions for a decade.

    After the game stopped being FUN enough they resorted to other means.
