    What SHOULD a WOW subscription price be?

    I know that everyone here is willing to pay $15/month. (Aside from the gold token subscriptions.)

    If you could wave a magic wand, what do you think a WoW subscription should be per month?

    5 dollars a month plus expansion cost or 10 dollars a month with free expansions.

    $15 bucks a month.

    But if you subscribe for 3 months at a time, $14 bucks a month.

    Additionally, if you subscribe for 6 months at a time, $13 bucks a month.

    Thats what a WoW subscription price should be. Oh wait...

    I would say; same as it is now with much higher quality game experience and elimination of the cash shop...since the best we can hope for is higher quality game experience I would say to keep your resume updated (since you are obviously a Blizz minion) and if you are one of the finance parasites that ruined this company...well I guess there is more damage that you could have done to society than screwing up a video game company.

    Initially I said 5 bucks, but since they kept rendering content I previously paid for irrelevant, I think free should be fair as a monthly sub going forward. Charge us for expansions and cash shop stuff, gold...etc.

    For anyone who thinks it should be free, you have the option to farm the gold and buy a token. Really, that's already what fuels Blizzard's economy.

    They're not going to make it free because the entire WoW Token system is based being an alternative to a sub fee, so any change in price will ultimately affect this system, to Blizzard's own detriment. So to me, it isn't even really about the subs, since they can always implement more MTX to cover that. But the WoW Token? At this point, that's not replaceable, and making the game F2P would give zero incentive for people wishing to purchase them for Game Time.

    Then they need to make them cheaper (25k gold max) and keep the price fixed.

    No change. It's so cheap, it's the price of a movie ticket, but provides far more entertainment than a single 2-hour movie.

    It does to me. Maybe not to you, but it does to me. So I stand by my opinion that it's worth the price and the price shouldn't change.

    Zero. Wow content is so bad now, that I just can't bear continuous month of playing it. I can play free games sporadically without caring about wasting my money.

    Half the price of a movie ticket in Switzerland. It's really a no brainer how cheap wow is. I still raid 2 times a week, that alone makes it the cheapest hobby I can think of.

    $16 (with tax) for about 240 hours of entertainment, or about $0.06/hour estimating about 8 hours a day of applicable time to play, since most people will have a job or a family or both to take care of. Not many can do 12, 14, 16 hours a day.

    Then I think of hobbies outside of WoW that I have, such as cycling; my summer season bike, a 2022 Trek Emonda SL 6 eTap, was $6,000 (not counting all I've poured into other bikes and my cycling kits). I would estimate I've probably spent close to $12,000 on cycling in just two years.

    For 11 years of WoW? $2,112 in subscription fees. In 11 years.

    As a skateboarder AND a guitarist... (who plays professionally and makes money) you overspend on your hobby, you probably dont even do sick jumps bc your a pussy who rides a 6000 dollar bike... no wonder you are able to rationalize it, money grows on trees for you.

    the token wouldnt be affected to much,people would still buy it with money to turn in to ingame gold,and other people would want to use their gold to buy shop stuff,or other blizzard stuff,if wow became f2p they would fill the shop atleast with cosmetics,making the token even more valuables as you would have far more shop options
