    Just add a own "boost trade" channel and a "boost" category in the lfg tool. Heck, they probably could add boosts to the auction house, complete with own UI and calendar invite. And just let people opt in or out of seeing those channels.

    Bam, boost spamming is gone for those who don't want to see it.

    I agree, theyve done the same with wow token and level boost token previously so why not? the purity of WoW is long-gone.

    Well it doesn't really matter what people think. Blizzard said it is fine if you are boosting for gold. The separate tab does seem like a good idea tho. Easy to implement.

    It isn't a magic 100% silver bullet solution to the situation. It still is far more effective then doing absolutely nothing about.

    Blizzard makes tons of money off boosting. They're not going to do anything about it. In fact they may facilitate it and make it easier for the boosters. Normalizing and legitimizing boosting will just be another nail in the coffin, along side all the other shit wrong with the game like WoW token.

    Good luck, it will never happen.
    Tsarez legit dont even bother, i pointed out to them that there is ATLEAST 500 servers, and that even if you had people work 8 hour work days you would need 3 people for a full 24 hour period, leading to about 5 people for a full week (cause people work 5/7 days a week)

    meaning you would need about 2500 people.

    but they came back with "you would only need to moderate like 15 servers, and you can just pay then 6$ an hour. problem solved"

    Let boosters have to play a game of taboo to reach people that don't want to see boosting services.
    you can, there is multiple addons to do exactly that.
    but blizzard wont do it themselves cause if you block

    suddenly

    Because you wouldn't need a GM for every single server. Have a few floating GMs for low-pop server then have other GMs dedicated to high-pop servers like Illidan. Mentioning how many servers there are and acting like they ALL need a GM to monitor them is asinine.

    vanilla 2004 called, they want the credit for that.
    boosting has been normal and legit since 2004, my guild sold rag kills for people to try and get their eye of ragnaros.

    thats why i gave the 500 number.

    cause there is 500 retail NA servers. so i just gave that number, with all of EU, china, Wow classic NA/EU/China and Wow classic legacy NA/EU/China acting as the "Smaller servers can have multiple"

    There is NOT 500 NA servers. There is 241. Then there are 263 other servers for all other countries total. So when you combine that number, you get get 504 servers overall server for WoW. But the majority of them are low-pop.

    Being more effective really doesn’t mean any thing when it’s still next to nothing like it was with gold sellers.
    All I ever wanted was the truth. Remember those words as you read the ones that follow. I never set out to topple my father's kingdom of lies from a sense of misplaced pride. I never wanted to bleed the species to its marrow, reaving half the galaxy clean of human life in this bitter crusade. I never desired any of this, though I know the reasons for which it must be done. But all I ever wanted was the truth.

    To OP, no legit boosting is fine.

    How would this solve anything? People will just make new BNet accounts same as making a new wow account.

    Blizzard will not do this. They make too much money off of the boosting community
    You give too much credit for their revenue from subs at this point. Subs are a much smaller part of their income.

    Kinda gave up trying to argue...I mean we got folks advocating for sweatshops for the sake of keeping botters at bay and probably a few people advocating putting a spyware microphone on our authenticator apps just to ban anyone mentioning the word "Boost"

    you know it would be more like giving rapist community service right? We already know doing so doesn't work so doing the same thing again is pointless.
