    Assuming it's jealousy over not being able to afford it and not anger at supporting the act of milking even a time capsule version of a game that was requested because it had less of that milking going on than contemporary Blizzard game releases is a massive cope and you know it.

    Ok,
    I have leveled 4 chars to 60 without any boost.
    Now I got the deluxe edition from my sons as a birthday present.
    Am i now a boosted andy if i use the free 58 char for another option to play with a different class, or the same class but as tank instead of Heal (Paladin No. 2)?
    Should i delete the mount even if i like it? just so nobody spits on me?
    I wish all you haters would take more care of yourself, then about others and how they play the game, as long as its in a legal way its not your matter.
    There a plenty of players running around with that mount and quess what, I don'care , never did.
    Wether in classic or in retail, its not my buisiness.
    I played TBC when it came out 2007 and I will play it on June 2. See You in Outland.

    Isnt the crafted sets in at p1? In that case shadoweave/mmoncloth/whatever they where called shoulders are probably a lot better.

    i know for my hunter there is basicly nothing from classic thats better.

    But there are some individual pieces ye

    Wait. The deluxe edition has a boost too? Huh. I might actually level a 2nd 60 then.

    On micro transactions, do i think they suck FUCK YES... does that give me the right to tell other people how to spend their coin NO..

    Also on the pay to win bullshit, it's not so much pay to win as more of paying to save time... which is exactly what they designed the game towards these days, with it's Monthly Active User bullshit.
    Completely false. Majority of players didn't reach 60 before BC release.

    Btw, some guy /spitting you once isn't harassment. A bunch of guys /spitting you once also isn't harassment unless they coordinated to all do that simultaneously and didn't do it of their own volition.
    Harassment is long-term, a lot more overt and generally unavoidable.

    ha·rass·ment
    /həˈrasmənt,ˈherəsmənt/
    noun
    noun: harassment; plural noun: harassments

    aggressive pressure or intimidation.
    "they face daily harassment and assault on the streets"

    If you want we can take the example and switch it to the following:

    Players face daily harassment and assault on the streets of Stormwind for riding their mounts obtained with the Deluxe Edition.

    Original Store mount community reaction

    Nothing new under the sun. Store mounts have been frowned on since their first incarnation. Now one is being brought out ahead of time just to milk some cash.

    Never having to buy ground mounts again on any alt is a pretty minor "P2W" with quotation marks as it's a convenience rather than actual win but still.

    No need to harrass. But I see no problem with just adding anyone you see with the store mount or boost gear to your ignore list. It's a good sign that they're not going to be reliable in the long run, best keep 'em out of your groups.

    It is just people being childish as usual, people who probably played TBC a long time ago and are disappointed their old power fantasy is being ruined. I mean it is a pretty funny to meme on the whole "Classic community" given that they seem to be just as shitty as the retail one. I was excited for if they put out WotLK classic, but not sure if i would play it without friends since the rest is kind of ass.

    Ever played a bg these days with all the boosted andies? Yeah much fun to play with even worse people than before. Being able to skip the ~60 hours leveling is just bad and shouldnt even exist. The mount is a big eyesore and feels out of place in tbc.

    Your purchase will bring more bad stuff into the shop in the future too. Soon we will get the wow classic token. People who buy the level boost will also probably want to buy gold (and they already do) which will lead to even more bots, thank you!
    This is all nonsense. A mount in no way ruins the game. Most of the people whoboost in classic have played the game before. Also, people like you have been saying this nonsense for years and nothing like it has happened.

    There is absolutely nothing "pay 2 win" about it.

    How is it not harrassment?
    lets try this version:
    "Some guy telling you homofobic stuff once isn't harassment. A bunch of guys telling you homofobic stuff you once also isn't harassment unless they coordinated to all do that simultaneously and didn't do it of their own volition."

    What? What are you smoking? People have been saying this for years and it has only been getting worse. Started from helmets, went to pets, to mounts, to boosts and now even to legit buying gold. The last thing remaining is buying gear directly which is effectively achievable through buying gold anyway. And the fact that this is starting to creep into classic is the epitome of clown fiesta.

    This is an ignorant generalization because many players who use the boost will be players who played back in the day. Good players do use boosts you know, right? It's also just as childish.

    Many people against boosts, store mounts and similar stuff complain but then proceed to go out and spend money on useless crap on their daily lifes and no one is spiting on them.

    Its just a generation of spoiled kids with no life.

    Those are all cosmetics. There is nothing pay 2 win about it. You still have to level to max even with a boost.You still have to gear up to get into the most difficult content. You can get 100's of mounts in the game. Ditto for pets. The "pay 2 win" argument" is devoid of all reality by special snowflkes who want to feel superior because they have no lives and play 20 hours day making them the only ones who should benefit.

    What an incredible analogy.

    I mean I personally think the boosts are stupid but in the end I just don't invite them to groups as a boost because they are just terribly geared off the jump. Sure, once you get to where I cannot tell you weren't a boost then it doesn't matter and I don't care. But sorry, if you are in all that green gear then I am not interested in an extra 45 minutes in the run while you die to every AOE pulse that happens. As for the mount, yeah, I think it is stupid and out of place in the game. Serves no purpose outside of a pit for people to throw money into. But if somehow throwing money into that pit makes them feel either "superior because they are so rich" or "hey I just like the lizard that awkwardly slides along the ground" then I could give a damn either way. But if people feel some kind of negative way about it I won't stand in their way either. If someone is allowed to feel superior because they can/do throw money into the pit or just feel good because they like the mount then I don't see why people shouldn't also be allowed to shit on them. Feels like the free will being satisfied on all ends. I don't do it because it just isn't worth my time or effort to spit on everyone with the mount.

    Truth is in like 24 hours-ish 90% of all it will go away because people will actually have things to do. Right now things are pissy because almost everyone is just standing around doing nothing but waiting.

    Trying to claim he’s wrong by using a slippery slope argument that literally proves him right... lol

    Yeah, selling gear would be p2w. They haven’t done it in the 12 years it existed. They won’t do it because it literally destroys their metrics (MAUs) when someone can just buy gear instead of spending hundreds of hours farming it.
