    Then hopefully you are not on a 6 months sub...because in that case they give it to you for free.
    Never seen outrage over it. It's generally well accepted.

    My only complaint is that most of the items are character bound not account bound. (some are account bound and labeled as such) But I've spent some money in that shop since I started playing again shortly before the last expansion came out.

    Converting gold you earn game is actually earning it in game. Not that hard to understand. Gold can be earned by killing bosses and also while hunting most achievements.
    So your snarky post is correct despite the snark.

    when I saw that I got it because I already had my last 6 monthes actives, meh, it'll collect dust and stay unused on any characters

    Again I meant directly earned in game from doing the content. Getting the amount of gold required to buy tokens is not really that achievable with out a substantial time farming or investing in how to operate the AH. Apologies if it comes across Snarky, but I felt you were being overly coy about how people can buy the item with gold and make it seem super easy. It is not.

    I think that'd be an interesting compromise. Put all the store stuff in game for gold at 5x the cost of what it'd be to buy tokens.
    Not really, no. I find it kinda difficult to go and make the sums of money people do without investing a huge amount of time gold farming, or learning the AH. I just prefer to play the game and do content on it.

    I am not saying gold sink items are wrong or they should go away. Maybe others find it fun to farm that amount of gold or to learn how to operate the AH to the point they can make vast sums of gold. That's how they enjoy the game and I am not going to police other peoples fun. I don't have any sort of easy answer for it.

    Oh, imagine character bound cosmetics for WoW and how ballistic ppl would go that already hate the shop.

    Now I wonder why the very same practice is generally well received in FFXIV but we constantly get outrage from (ex)WoW players?

    Oh, interesting...I never knew that.

    Hm...I actually wonder if people hating this (yet are on a sub) would do that?

    Hehe...."not buying the 6 months to avoid it" would actually be spending extra money to NOT get something. I mean...if you intend to stay subbed, yet change payment to monthly, you pay 13 Euro extra to avoid getting the costume - as the 6 month sub only costs as much as 5 single months.

    Anyhow....yeah....obviously there is tons of stuff that I dislike in my appearance and even mount tab, so they stay unused.

    Remember when the Warcraft Universe wasn't just a bunch of MLP BS run by 4 elven races ? Remember when it was all about savage orcs/trolls VS noble humans/dwarves, and not this crap ?

    Man, things have gone so much south they're in antartica right now.. Glad I unsubbed months ago.

This is just the first of many. Sure this might look ugly but they're gonna make good ones eventually. Much better looking than the ones in-game. And then you're gonna look at the gear you get ingame and be like "well I pay 15$ for this garbage".

    I don't understand people who use that excuse...
    But then they'd just complain that it's too difficult to unlock. We got a ton of new, FREE races this expansion which only required you to play the game to unlock them and people still constantly complained that the rep grind was too much for them. I passively unlocked every race just by playing. In my opinion, they were very easy to obtain. It doesn't matter what Blizzard does, people will always complain. I see nothing wrong with the in-game shop. Many games do the same thing. It's nothing out of the ordinary here.
    Check out my game, Craftsmith, on the Google Play Store!

    Usual MMO-C news post = ~10 comments
    Some post about a (basically free) transmog = >500 comments

    I think a lot of the lurkers are really triggered right now.

    I think its more the fact that this set is more high quality, with thought gone in on characters with long/big ears or horns so no clipping occurs, when heritage armour sets designed for one race do have clipping issues.

    I'm not whining, I am complaining, big difference. And I am complaining about one single thing from the shop, not 'every little thing' that comes out of it. Please don't try and warp my point around to attempt to make yours valid.

    FFXIV is also an entirely different group of people, and I am not concerned with them whatsoever.
    If we could all sit and talk without demonizing one another and attempt to understand the opposite point of view, the collective world would be a better place. Mental bigotry is the worst of all.

    Yikes.

    What the actual hell? So this just basically proves that the Wendigo outfit was them testing the waters.... what a joke.

    Seriously they have the audacity to release a 20 dollar mtx after this mess of a pre patch and delaying the expansion? Judging by the fact it's 6 months Shadowlands is definitely not coming out this year now since they've released another "sub hook".

    Watch them brag about record Q4 profits after firing 300 employees and then sticking this 6 month bundle or lone MTX up.

    Nice to see that raid sets are gonna suffer more now so they can put more detailed transmogs on the store. Guess that's why BFA had absolutely no decent raid sets.

    Disgusting. The video on their youtube channel deserves the 20k dislikes. There is no defending or rationalizing this move.

    You pay for 5 months and get 6 months time + a free mog why the fuck are people complaining?

  14. #514
    Indie developer Activision-Blizzard needs this MTX transmog money on top of the small amount of profits they make from the game subscription, in game store game upgrades/game services/mounts/pets/toys/bundles/wow token, expansion packs, Blizzcon tickets, official tournament entry fees, stock market share price increases, Twitch/YouTube advertisement revenue and official merch store.

    With a net income of $1.5 billion USD in 2019... they need this transmog money to stay afloat!
