    Doesn't the XP nerf kick in after level 20 or did I read that wrong from past patches? So much for faster leveling if everyone who rerolls will be stuck.

    35£ for a clone? What the fuck.
    None of those things are "gamechanging" but fuck me it stinks like EA. It's just being dissapointed. Classic had a good launch with no BS like this.

    You must be willingly ignorant to not understand why people don't like that. Being willfully ignorant only tells me one thing about you.
    Ah yes, a loyal customer whom, despite 10 years of services NOT being free, spends the time they say they don’t have to level bitching about their services on forums.

    It’s not free for them, why would you ever expect it to be free for you? That’s just not how it works.

    Will it cost them $35 to run a series of scripts/data copies? Of course not. They’re greedy. And have been for a long, long time.

    1. the snapshot is free, if you want to play that snapshot it costs money, you always have the choice, play one, or the other, or pay to play both.
    2. didnt know service space was free and infinite.
    the 35$ price is odscene, but making people pay for it is perfectly normal.

    there is TONS of stuff in tbc that makes leveling in classic insanely easy, but 2 of the larger ones is that
    1- at level 20 exp to level is nerfed
    3- at level 30 exp from quests is increased

    but here

    Which could have been fine, if they hadn't previously announced exactly the opposite just 2 months ago.
    .... by letting people buy extra stuff with real money if they want to?

    Well, that's a way to miss a point I guess.

    It's a Classic game launch. Classic WoW did not have any of this BS on launch, but they are just fucking every TBC fan over with this launch containing "micro transactions" which cost like AAA title like we are some second grade players.

    Everyone knows that they are greedy, but they weren't greedy for Classic players, they just fuck TBC players over.

    Who exactly is getting fucked over? I care little about people using Character Boosts. I will be using one myself. I levelled to TBC 14 years ago. Who the fuck cares.

    No I just think its hilariously stupid and absolutely entertaining watching people get so mad about it. Like the people that actively play retail and bitch about it nonstop entertaining. In very different ways obv.

    Also the clone cost is clearly designed to get people to not use it. Like how a boost is set at 60. Its partially to for the money and partially to dissuade people from using it. I dont agree with it but I also think they should have forced everyone into TBC and just added fresh classic servers instead.

    Meh $39.99 for Boost seems fine to me, that's barely more than I earn an Hour for my Job. Meaning I can get to 58 in 1-2hr worth of real work, or 6 day's worth of "ingame" work.

    1 is infinitely better value for my time to skip the trash that is Azeorth leveling.

    Who cares? Blatantly a lot of people. Just because it’s a non issue for you doesn’t mean it’s a non issue.

    You bought cards, not mounts. Items were a bonus if you don't see a difference I guess you can't tell the difference between a Cargo Ship vs A Bicycle.
    Lot's of people care here. There are just a lot of assholes who love to come in screaming "who cares, lol QQ losers"

    I guess you find people amusing being passionate about anything then. If you think that is stupid then you clearly lack judgement and basic understanding. I mean by the "edgy" position you can already see that you just say shit to piss people off even more.

    Forcing everyone into TBC? What about people who were only asking for Classic WoW? Fuck them over? I mean I doubt you are that dumb, so again, I will assume you say this stuff to piss people off.

    Just checked your past threads and posts. Not wasting any brain power on you anymore. Seek help.

    What exactly is the issue with this $35 service?

    Blizzard are going to be running 3 versions of WoW off 1 subscription and people are mad because they're making you pay to copy your maxxed out chars to new servers?

    Did anybody really expect Blizzard to let you play Retail, TBC and Classic simultaneously off of 1 sub and not expect them to try and recoup some money elsewhere?

    They didn’t fuck over anyone. You can play both versions at no additional cost. Those AAA titles you’re talking about like Skyrim or GTA that keep re-releasing on new/add’l platforms and still charge a MANDATORY $60 for it, even though you’ve bought the previous versions?

    Well, you know, Witcher? Borderlands? No Man Sky has absolute Gods of developers despite massive fuck up at the start.

    I hope not, but Blizzard taking $35 for running some scripts is still ridiculous.

    It doesn't make the game better as such, but it will make Blizzard earn more money, which should incite Blizzard to keep WoW up and running for many years to come. So in that sense it is very good for the game.

    I for one greatly approve of all the cosmetic stuff. The more people buy stuff that cost virtually nothing to produce the longer I can play WoW and still pay the same I have paid for many years.

    Or, you know, it incites Blizzard to sell more cosmetic stuff instead of just selling good games.

    Anyway, you can say that about any monetization method. It's not exclusive to selling in-game items for money. So how exactly does the game become better for it on any objective level, versus just having a fair price?

    So people who has several characters on classic server will only be able to take one character "for free" to tbc classic and for the rest they will have to pay 35$ a pop? Nice business model!
    Moderators on this site are, to put it nicely, morons. They believe any opinion contrary to popular ones are either trolling or flaming or baiting. They can not comprehend the fact that there can be people who would utterly detest what they like or million others like. Well, it is their site and their "Authoretaeh" but they are morons nonetheless.

    "Players who wish to experience the best of both worlds will be able to use the optional character cloning service (available May 18, $35 per character), which will allow them to continue playing a copy of an existing character on a Classic Era realm while also advancing into Burning Crusade Classic."

    Pretty sure this means moving a character to Classic Servers. Not moving a character to TBC
