    They are making the game intentionally bad so you spend more moneys. Stop defending this shit.

    Classic is classic though. They're just remaking old TBC. It's not like you can expect much here.

    I would have a larger issue with this whole situation if they were trying to massively take advantage of the playerbase. They're only allowing 1 boost per account, they said that and stuck to it instead of seeing how much money they made the first few days of the boost and just opening the boost up to unlimited per account. And the pricing isn't even egregious. The deluxe edition comes with 2 mounts, one for classic and retail, two toys, the boost, and a month of game time. If you were to calculate what these would cost individually based on blizzards own pricing structure: $25 per mount, $10 per toy, $60 boost, and $15 for a month of game time, totaling $145. I have absolutely no problem with the deluxe edition or the boost, to be frank the leveling experience is left in vanilla, it's not part of the Burning Crusade experience.

    reading all this nonsense here kinda makes me wanna buy the mount. it looks like a perfect deterrant for people i never want to play with anyway.

    stay mad classic community. theres a reason youre not taken seriously anywhere else.

    EDIT: with how much people here hate blizzard and the monetization, i wonder why they keep supporting those bad decisions with their hard earned sub money. HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

    Classic failed too buddy, without microtransactions lol. There were only a handful of populated servers going into T2 You need to realize that monetization is what keeps the game alive at all, classic or retail, as I already stated, it didn't have egregious pricing to manipulate the players, it wasn't a mandatory max level power increase, it was optional. If the game doesn't make money, the game won't exist, and the small Classic playerbase isn't enough to justify to investors as to why the game should continue getting resources.

    I'm curious, can someone that supports these micro-transactions deem where they draw the line?

    For me, buying a level boost is as much of an advantage as buying CE or glad is, as at the end of the day you're paying to skip time and effort; And I genuinely believe that the average person can achieve Gladiator in less time /played than level 60 in classic/TBC if they actually want it.

    What would be the line? Is there one? I don't even see buying gear as 'worse' than buying levels tbh.

    Companies, especially ones like blizzard, are primarily concerned with making money, bar none. Fact.

    People's buying habits, therefore, will impact how a game is developed. Fact.

    Certain views and desires are not compatible with certain spending habits. Fact.

    Therefore, it is perfectly reasonable, if you're someone in that less-profitable group that will be shunned at the expense of the more-profitable group, that you fight in every way possible, in whatever capacity you feel fit, to combat that reality and attempt to adjust it in your favor.

    Just ignore it if you dislike it... You know... Like you're telling the other disgruntled people to do. At least your outcome won't actually be impacted in any meaningful and non-ignorable way, unlike the haters of the mtx buyers.
    Except we're not talking about real life lol. We're talking about a video game that every single person agrees to a ToS upon entering. Part of that ToS is that Blizzard holds the sole right to ban you for whatever they deem fit without ever having to justify themselves to you as to why. Blizzard outright says that Harassment is against terms of use and they do ban for it. Hence nobody deserves to be harassed.

    You should and ride around and bath in the /spits. Spend your money and prove me wrong. That would show me.

    Else as in retail? There is no retail, only TBC.

    OK, so you are being intentionally obtuse then and are set on disingenuously asserting that the communities are the same. If you were part of either community and were actively participating in online discussions rather than sealioning you would get a general feel as to what each group wants and is OK with. What is the reaction on the forums when new monetization is added? What about prominent content creators? To what degree does Blizzard push monetization on either ecosystem? If you participated in discussions you would understand a general trend, though we obviously don't have the ability to do some multi-thousand participant random sampling of the playerbase, and your assertion that we somehow cannot figure out what the community wants without it is blatantly stupid.

    The best part of /spit is the fact that you can't preemptively ignore it in any really good way, combined with the fact that some people just take massive offense at an ingame emote. I think there might be addons that help you, but 99% of people with the mount won't have any addon. You just have to deal with the fact that people are showing their discontent towards your purchasing choices in a really innocuous fashion.

    A. Classic has more players than Retail so shut it.
    B. I came from private servers and can go right back. Monetization doesn't keep classic alive, but my desire to play the game does.
    C. If Blizzard didn't bring back classic then they risk losing their copyright, due to private servers. They had no choice but to bring it back.

    The /spit thing is a funny way to show disdain for people who show off that they got suckered into buying a mount.
    But that didn't happen on a large scale. Very rarely someone would say something about them riding the CS. The first time it was actually happening on a large scale was in MoP when they introduced boosts. Trade chat and everyone hated on boosted chars. It was crazy. No one boosted got invited in any group. No one wanted to play with them. Funny to see it happening again.

    Comments like these are so funny already, and will be even funnier to look back on when TBC Classic is further monetized.

    /spit is the suckerpunch of wow. nothing more or less. Many spits! Handle it!

    These mounts and other dumb retail-inspired graphics weren't in TBC and they shouldn't be in TBC classic either. It looks like something straight out of WoD or Legion and is pretty aesthetically jarring

    Everybody who purchased one is rewarding Blizzard for their defilement of the game, and encouraging further defilement

    The /spits will continue until the chumps who bought these mounts go back to retail... so about another month or so
    Subtlety Rogue was an amazing, incredible, unique, and fun spec prior to Legion and BfA

    Where are you getting this from? As far as I'm aware, there's no evidence that Classic ever surpassed Retail in terms of active players.

    C. If Blizzard didn't bring back classic then they risk losing their copyright, due to private servers. They had no choice but to bring it back.
    No, this would not happen. Blizzard could have never released Classic and still maintained their rights over World of Warcraft.

    I would never harass players over buying the deluxe edition tbh, everyone who didn't think blizzard was going to milk the shit out of classic with microtransactions is hopelessly naive (or spent the last 10 years in a coma).

    The decision to add these things was probably made 10 seconds after deciding to re-release vanilla in the first place, so buying the deluxe edition or not buying it won't have any influence on the release of future microtransactions.

    It really is something when someone speaks so confidently in completely erroneous statements.

    The last bit about their copyright being in jeopardy is absolute gold.

    I can believe that. I never bought the helmets back then, but I heard some stories about that.
