The big difference being that having 60 levels on a player has much more impact than having a few item levels does.
    Goodness gracious this disingenuous slippery slope is as tired today as it was when people first started claiming the sky was falling when they put the celestial steed on the store. And those stupid hats. Has the sky fallen?

    Harassment, really? I see it as PvP tbh. Just like ganking someone in felwood, /spitting on you, makes you my content.

    How is this linking what I asked you to? I love the quick and confident response though.

    It has, because the people who are mad about it do stupid shit like this instead of taking a meaningful action, like quitting the game and telling blizzard why, then sticking to that.

    If they lost players in droves to game store stuff they'd stop, but instead you fools drum up controversy, draw more attention to their paid services, make buying store mounts some kind of moral issue people can stand on both sides of (which I'm betting helps sales more than hurts), and keep right on paying them.

    And in like a week you poor things will run out of steam and move on to whatever the next thing you want to ineffectually protest is.

    You want me to provide you the link for the token? Like the fuck you on about?
    I was 100% sure you d reply this exact thing just so you re not proven wrong.
    Just because the gear is not DIRECTLY sold according to you it has not gotten worse? because that was my original question.

    Are people here seriously validating the idea of:

    "Is totally ok to tell people to harass someone or a group if is harmless"

    What could possibly go wrong? Is harmless, right?
    Are you new to planet earth or something?

    Yes please, let's make it a battle. You swipe your credit time every time I /spit you in game. Let's see who runs out of resources first.

    That's because people who are butthurt over cosmetic mtx are a strict minority of loud assholes. Them leaving means nothing so they are trying to make noise instead. Toxicity always gets more attention. The vast majority either doesn't care and doesn't buy, or buys something from time to time and plays the game.

    The point is that attempting constrain such a behavior is unnecessarily restrictive and ultimately not forceable.

    Because it's damn stupid to do so.
    What do you expect Blizzard to do?
    Ban everyone that uses the /spit emote?
    So if someone steals herbs in front of me, i type /spit, i am going to receive a temporary ban / warning?

    Sure sounds just.

    What are the other options, remove the /spit emote?
    Okay, then people will just type "/e spits on you" in the future.

    What then, ban that as well?
    Okay, people will use /insult.

    Sounds like an amazing plan.

    That person clearly targets people wear a blue shirt and no sane person will take action against it in an enviroment where the option exists to remove any interaction with that person (=ignore list).

    No fucking wonder cuck culture is a thing. This thread is worth more that a psy-study.

    Either that or a gathering of cetaceans.

    Tbh I don't care all that much about the money stuff. For me it just looks out of place, it's ugly and the animations are cringe.
    Just get friends that are mature and stable enough to not care about what you do with your money, problem solved.

    It's not about how you spend your money. You could burn it for all I care.

    But you are spending it on something that actively detriments my game-experience by removing exclusive items that could be in-game earn-able and putting them behind a card swipe.

    - Pay for game + expansions.
    - Monthly subscription.
    - In-game cash shop.

    Are you telling me there is nothing consumer unfriendly about this business model? I swear if you fucks throw up the "muh capitalism" bullshit again I'll put a pickle up my asshole and stop taking my adderall for a week.

    I fully and wholly understand your distaste and reasoning behind it. I just don't care, and neither do any of the people I play with. We just raid and do dungeons, couldn't care less about some higher gaming philosophy or what mount people ride around on.

    I also thought that in my previous posts I've made it pretty clear that I was talking about TBC and retail in parallel since I also quoted KSM and CE, but I guess not.
    Again you're displaying your fundamental misunderstanding of what "average" means. By saying the average player doesn't reach level cap you're implying that less than half of active players reach level cap, I seriously doubt that. Regardless, the group of players we're interested in are obviously at level cap and doing rated arena. Your statement that anyone is capable of it with time is just inherently false. For one, not everyone will have the skill needed no matter how much time they put into it. Even if they could, the way it is designed literally makes this impossible. As even a single person in the playerbase increases in skill, this shifts the average up. In TBC, there is only a certain percentage of players that get glad. In retail it is not limited to a certain number of players by a hard cap based on the number of active participants but the way MMR works will effectively put a cap on the number of players capable of getting to 2400.

    So, classic or retail, it doesn't matter. It is literally impossible for the "average" player to get 2400 outside of buying a carry.
