If you actually look at the bigger picture adding the WoW sub to gamepass ultimate actually does more for WoW in the long run and more for gamepass advertising as a whole. They are at almost 30 million subs for gamepass, many of which I guarantee have never played WoW, not they will very likely try it at no cost to them. If they merge the sub with gamepass now YOU and every other WoW player becomes a gamepass sub, it is pretty genius to get all of you into the ecosystem and you have no choice lmao.
    No thehy want to make money. Why add WoW to gamepass when you can charge people for game pass AND a wow sub? You are basically costing yourself money by throwing away all the sub money because you added it to Game Pass. Also, if they merge it with gamepass, they will make LESS money from me since I will no longer be paying a sub and paying far less for a game pass. Doing this move which means you are getting less money from people is not a genius idea.

    My guess i they plan on making a season pass system to replace the monthly fee and the token, the token itself has adversely effected the WoW economy changed the direction of the games design to counter abusive behavior brought forth by the token.

    The wow token makes them a pile of cash so no matter how it effects the game i can't see it going anywhere.

    Microsoft has a goal to make games fair and fun and accessible, that vision is being carried through, I know it is hard to believe because of what the industry has become but it is a boon for the industry for a company to make a stand against the current practices in the industry both from a human decency standpoint and a monetary one. So far they have made choices in the last 8 years moving towards the goals and I don't see it stopping, Microsoft is also one of the best companies to work for on the planet for the treatment of their employees.

    They have (or had since they are changing it) crazy microtransactions in Halo Infinte. They won't get rid of the token out of a sense of fair and fun or whatever other idealization pie in the sky views you want to mention about Microsoft. They want to make money.

    So? WoW tokens make money. They aren't removing that no matter how much you want them gone.
