    I got 15000 hours in wow and i payed 2700$ for it in subs. Thats not much per hour and it beats any other game out there in terms of $ per hour enjoyed.

    In the very recent past yes... at this point specifically no. In the future maybe I'm not buying another expansion with so many grind systems.

    Not subbed now (un-subbed, but it runs a couple more weeks), but tokens had nothing to do with it. Never used tokens to pay for a sub. The story is just absolute trash and I don't really care about the characters any more. I loved raiding with my guild, but hardly any of them show up any more. It's a damn shame. Never expected WoW to be the WoW-killer.

    I might resub at some point if they add some good content. I'm just really tired of pocket zones, no-flying Oribos and the Maw, and Snoreghast (I literally fall asleep while running that). Also, there's too much rationing of the little content there is to stretch it out and make it last. I'm not feeling the passion from the devs on this expac at all.

    Too bad they decided to skip adding a new class. That could have really propped up this skimpy expansion. Diluting it across every class with Covenant powers just makes you feel like it's not enough oomph.

    ive never used gold to pay for my sub. The time/gold isnt worth it for me its more efficient with IRL money.

    Naw I didn't say that because it's been discussed in a different thread and isn't relevant. You simply threw out a random insult towards FF14 and I wanted to point out that in the context of wow, such a comment is ludicrous.

    Well, yeah, I would but I love the token system for when I make a good sale, or have a stash of gold, or just a low month, always being able to buy game-time if I wish to play. I am, very happy the token exists, not due to boosters but due to the massive amount of gold sales that disappeared as well. Not to mention, the token makes it able for one player to sell game-time to another player for gold, without worrying about scams, hacking, and the likes. And it also skips the buying gold topic, you aren't buying gold from Blizzard, you are trading an item (game-time/battle.net currency) for gold from another player.

    But in short, would still stay subbed, the sub is already cheap.

    Probably yeah, unless my friends didn't play. Luckily when we transferred to our current realm I had to ditch most of my gold, so I turned it into Bnet balance for about £900 worth. Plenty there to pay for anything Blizzard related for years to come.
    Your persistence of vision does not come without great sacrifice. Let go of the tangible mass of your mind, it is only an illusion. There is no escape.. For the soul burns on everlasting encapsulated within infinite time. A thousand year journey at the blink of an eye... Humanity is dust..

    Kind of misses the entire point. When you put a price tag on something, you put a cap on its worth which is equal to that monetary value. This devalues everything in the game and makes me feel like I wasted my time getting it because I have enough expendable income to just buy anything with significantly fewer hours of work.

    Even a 5% chance to get banned is enough to not make me feel stupid about putting the hours in instead of paying real money and taking that risk.

    There will never be a moment in time where i'm not subbed to WoW.

    I pay in 6 month blocks, and I always pay with real money.

    To get as much entertainment out of a game for less than 15 dollars a month as this game offers is a steal. I honestly think they could raise the price of the sub and still do just fine. I know i'd pay for it.

    Dumped a few million golds into Battle.net currency too, making it easier to buy the next expansions or merch.

    With current prices token is just waste of time as sub method, unless of course you play auction house.

  14. #34
    If I did play wow, it would be subscription.

    Atm I don't and don't expect it to happen until wow becomes worth to play again. There is no content in there that I'd want to do.

    It's always fucking hilarious to me when people compare some cosmetics that no one buys to sanctioned gold buying and carries that a huge part of the community partakes of.

    I'm not subbed despite having more than enough gold to pay for it with tokens, because it just isn't enjoyable compared to other games I'm playing instead.

    I don't cancel my sub for anything as I don't see the point. Plus that way I can jump into the game for 10 minutes once a year if I wanted to.
