    Ofc its fine since they are gold sellers. And this concludes why the problem will never go away.

    Ideally yes but blizzard does not want to admit they are in the business of p2p/p2w. They still want players to imagine that gold purchased from AH is used to buy flasks and stuff.
    Imagine 500 px width. Now imagine 100 px height. Now imagine this is a signature. Done.

    I think they shot themselves in the foot by introducing the token.
    Surely it must be alot easier to just outright ban someone advertising gold buying websites as opposed to someone
    advertising boosting.

They already have servers that cater to specific play styles, pvp and pve servers (classic only), RP servers, why not have boosting servers. The boost / non boost servers would not be able to interact with eachother.
    Make any and all gear of all ilevels achievable and acquirable through Solo means.

    There fixed boosting for you.

    Players only like boosting beceause it's a quick and easy way to high gear.

    Just add another quick and easy way and people will drop boosting.

    What about instead of boost for gold, there will be only boost for boost? like:
    raid for arena
    arena for m+
    m+ for raid
    raid for pet battle
    pet battle for trasmorun loot
    mount for achievemnt
    achievement for arena...
    Or any other combination where player A got boosted and pay player B with a different boost
    (yeah i'm an one of that old boomer that boosted pandaria challenge for gladiator title, or trade a full siege of orgrimmar ex hc for a full pvp guild and they boost all our raider to gladiator)
    That was super sweet

    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"
    Why not see it as a very special government welfare program? Or maybe put them all into a single cramped Asian call center style building with nets around their windows to stop them from commiting suicide. No payment needed, just promise them to "take care of their family".

    At least the LFG tool won't have boosters advertising anymore. So worth it.

    i got a total of 733, idk how you got 504.
    especially as these dont include the chinese servers.
    Why do you see the concept of hiring staff as a some ridiculous unfathomable outcome?

    I've not indulged in your bizzare number game as it seems pointless but let's get to the heart of the issue.

    Why is it absurd to expect basic moderation in a game where out sourcing it to the community has clearly failed.

    Yip. The more boosting people clogging up the LFG the better for Blizzard.

    I don't know, but I rather buy boost than sit 5 hours in a pug. I am just terribly lazy nowadays. Lacking patience or whatever it is. Recently, I entered such terrible boost group that to be honest I couldn't really see the difference.

    Is it a big cash cow? How many people are selling tokens to buy boosts? If you can’t answer, then you can’t possibly know it’s a big cash cow and you are just pulling random shit out of your ass.

    I don't hate boosting! I just hate ad promotion stuff.
