    Man I'd forgot about that. Then they brought out the mount collection.

    ??
    Yes. Harassment is harassment. Harassment is prolonged and near inescapable in a real world setting, such as bullying. A kid goes to school daily and gets bullied there and has barely any way to avoid it.

    Some guy emote spitting on you once or several people emote spitting on you once isn't harassment.

    [QUOTE=Delever;53209205]How is buying gold cosmetic?
    >Be a whale
    >Spend thousands on lvl boost and tokens
    >use money from tokens to buy carries through content
    >Acquire best gear in the game through getting carried[/quote}So? That affects you how? Oh right, that goes back to the special snowflake thought. The only ones who think it it P2W are those who want to strut around Org/SW like special snowflakes and have their e-peen stroked so they can have a feeling of superiority. Nothing is p2w at all.


    But they can. What stops whales from buying tokens with money and use the gold to buy gear through carries? Which is exactly what is happening in retail. The fucking trade chat nowdays is literally NOTHING but carry/boost spam which reflects the demand for it.
    Again so what? It doesn't affect your playing of the game in any way other than your ability to lord your superiority over others which is a you problem, not a game one. People need to stop acting like being superior to everyone else in the game is the sole purpose of playing it. It is just a game, not real life.

    At the end of the day, this is all just another problem Blizzard has created, for $$$

    I don’t know why people think gear is winning in this game. A bad player without gear is still a bad player with gear. See all the people with newly acquired R14 weapons getting dunked on by better players?

    Competition in this game is always about content and skill.

    Asmongold/Twitch thing, I think.

    Like calling people "Classic Andy," "Boosted Andy," "Weeb Andy,"

    Take thing with negative connotation/add negative connotation and then tack "Andy" at the and of it. I don't really get it either.

    They are protecting it fine. That private server will be taken down soon, just as all the rest eventually were.

    Buying gold has always been in the game and regardless of it being legal, people have done it. A fella I used to know bought like 100K in TBC so he could buy boosts for everything from the War Bear to BT clears. The fact that buying it direct cannot get you banned just brought people into the light with it.

    Lol

    I was playing wow actively during the spectral's steed release. Wasn't watching youtubers back then and was only using youtube for some musicvideos.

    I bought the spectral steed on release and I remember the whole Daralan populated by them. Like 3 other people from my guild back then got it as well, rest either didn't care or disliked the looks of it. Hadn't seen anyone shaming or attacking people for it.

    Please stop presenting Youtube videos as "community reaction". It's a reaction of that specific creator and his followers. Totalbiscuit was a great content creator but his early years aged pretty badly. Glad he changed his mind on many topics as time passed by.

    YOu might actually want to read the post:

    but some argue this is most likely just due to the fact that the Chinese version of Classic already has a WoW Token, so the equivalent page was made by default (or by mistake) for NA and EU as well.
    So, you really have no evidence at all.

    I don't blame anyone for taking advantage of the boost if they can justify that ridiculous price to themselves. Totally their choice. The leveling experience is tedious as fuck. It helps new players I guess. You will know your abilities like second nature after you've killed 1000's of mobs leveling up. Anyone who has played for years doesn't need that kind of grind.

    Anyhoo I'm not seeing this spitting / harassment thing on EU servers either. Atleast on Pyrewood EU. Is it mainly a U.S thing?

    EDIT: Or maybe a PvP server thing. Yea I can imagine the idiots that play on those servers acting like dumb little jealous kids.

    Cry more. You can decide to boost for any reason, and I can decide not to play with boosters for any reason.

    The analogy is not the same for the simple reason that retail exists for this. People who decided to play classic vehemently despise these additions and practices. You can buy all the useless shit you want in so many other games. But when a game that was made for a demographic that despises these additions because they fundamentally alter the games premise it is different.

    On classic tokens don't even exist, so you gotta grind for that gold.

    Nobody is asking for any rights. Stop being so damn toxic.



    The irony of saying that doesn't hurt you?
    Not sure how to tell you this- you dont need to be a millionaire to buy a mythic geared toon illegally. Nor anything close to that.

    Why do people assume WoW was created with some motive other than to make money?

    They sold. They absolutely didn’t have to. They had hundreds of millions in revenue and a rapidly growing base.

    And from a design perspective, WoW was created with significantly lower barriers to player success than EQ. They wanted growth and that’s it.

    Everybody wants growth and profit. Nobody claims otherwise. But there are some practices that start to lean on the greedy side of things which also resonate terribly with players. Loitering past versions of the game with modern practices is one of them.
