    Does it matter for me if i KNOW i will play it anyway? This way i may get some mount or whatever. Granted this preorder bonus is... underwhelming tbh. A pet. But it is something i get for free for something i am going to do anyway a few months later...

    I'll keep monitoring the expansion, but so far it's a definite skip for me. And since I'm not playing right now either there's little point in preordering even if I was considering playing DF.

    Nope, even worse preordering without seeing alpha at all and in what state the game will be is awful.

    Another thing if people want to give Bobby kotick last good paycheck because he just got resigned for 1 more year, then go on, just don't you even dare say anything about how bad he is later, when you're just buying in dark, with smile on your face. Fickle.

    People that say "i will be playing anyway" don't even care if 50% or 80% of it might be broken which i kinda find funny, perfect blizzard clients i guess.

    What’s sad about preordering a game you’ve been looking forward to?
    You're wrong though. If they sold enough pre-orders it wouldn't encourage them to do any "extra," and maybe they would even cut down working hours to save money. This is because they'd have sold a satisfactory amount of copies based on little but a promise or thin air. Now, if they haven't reached a number they're happy with by launch, they will have to base it on the gameplay itself, players' spread of words and continued flow of content to the game. Feedback hasn't been an effective way to ask for changes before very recently, like 9.1, so this stems from speaking with money.

    To me this expansion and its theme is the most exciting since Legion. But look at the marketing, look at the lack of info we've been provided so far, look at the product we've been showed until now. Something's iffy. And in return we're showing them that they can sell us anything at this point, that we don't even read the ingredients list and that we are ready to spend even on their slightest effort. There are few reasons to give them your money NOW when it might have a detrimental effect on product quality. Why not buy it a month before, two weeks before or just a couple of days? I enjoy WoW since 2006 and will probably buy every expansion until adult life starts weighing too much on my free time. I also blindly buy the expansions to a certain degree as I don't participate in beta. But, I never, for the sake of quality, give my money up front 6 months ahead. In its current state the product you're all buying in the battle net store might aswell be entitled "Next Expansion" shipped with "New Features." If the playerbase has any interest and hope left, we should collectively show them that we need to be provided with a lot more before we draw from our bank accounts.

    Since I'm going to play DF I will likely preorder. Which version? I don't know. I dont remember how much gold I have to turn into bnet balance, etc.

    Though, this will happen much closer to the release.

  7. #287
    All these silly goose guesswork what they'd or or not do with x or y number of pre-orders is just hilarious.

    You people don't know shit and you try to apply your local family convenience store consumer logic to a corp that rolls billions a year.

    Besides this whole thread being laughable, your support or protest here does not mean shit. There will be millions of sales and pre-orders as usual no matter the hissy fits you do on these 200 active posters forums.
    All my ignores are permanently filtered out and invisible to me. Responding to my posts with nonsense or insults is pointless, you're likely already invisible and if not - 3 clicks away. One ignore is much better than 3 pages of trolling.

    134 people atm bought a game that isnt even done, there is no beta and we have no idea when it will be out.

    People are free to choose whatever they want, but I'm not going to pre-order anything based on what I've seen.

    I don't think 6 months is a realistic deadline where we can expect them to release the product we are expecting, if Shadowlands is anything to be believed they will just take the pre-order money and abandon ship if things don't work out.

    I take it pre-orders is something that only happens with Blizzard games or something?

    The whole idea of pre-ordering is buying something that's not done lol

    I would be pretty interested in an awesome dragon-related caster too and hope it turns out good but we just haven't seen nearly enough of it yet. It's reveal was very anaemic on details and even basic spell animations. We haven't see anything close to a full range of graphical options/animations for the Dracthyr themselves either.

    I want to believe they will be awesome too but Blizzard are not telling us nearly enough yet to be anything but cautious.

    This is going to be the first time I'm going to wait until the expansion is actually out before buying in. I still believed I'd have friends to raid with the previous few times, but at this point everybody's gone or doing their own thing with no interest in raiding, so I'm out until I can properly see what's coming and whether or not I'll enjoy it. Quite likely I'll wait for the first big patch after launch to buy it.

    if you want to preorder you do , if not you dont. Don't get why you guys are so obsessed. Get a life.

    So what is this? A "protest"?

    They're going to get enough pre-orders. All the cynical whiners and complainers on the forums and twitter represent a tiny sliver of the total WoW playerbase. Believe it or not, the internet is not real life.

    I've seen enough.

    Your mileage may vary.

    That's just not how things work IRL dude. At this stage, all design decisions and all milestones, goals etc. are already set and once alpha comes out, most of the development of these set goals is done as well.

    This whole idea that depending on how many people preorder or not will have an impact on the quality of the game is just typical BS that "gamers" keep telling themselves, but has nothing to do with reality. Like what do you think how Blizzard operates, their devs just develop the game normally, while the sales team is paying close attention to how many preorders were sold and once they reach 3million or so they go to the devs and say: "Hey you can now be lazy, don't work, just go and drink breast milk or whatever."?

    Haven’t preordered yet. I’m hopeful, as I’ve still had enjoyment from every xpac since I started in Wrath (except Legion. Screw that forced grind crap).
    The problem is that they haven’t revealed enough. I’m resigned to the idea that this will end up, more than likely, being another WoD. I’d be fine with that, as I enjoyed the raid log game style, mixed with logging into the game because you want to vs logging in because you have to. We still haven’t seen all of the talent trees yet. In my opinion, that is greatly going to change enjoyment of playability. For me.
    So, we’ll see. Maybe after some more reveals I will be less reluctant to buy it.

    Kotick gets the same salary no matter how many preorders this game gets. It does not work the way you think it does.

    I like how the thinking around here about companies that are in business to make money is "well, if they make enough money, then they'll stop making money". Because every business throughout history has done exactly that. They've made all the money they want to make, and then they'll just stop.

    Not giving them your money because you perceive the value is not worth the investment is one thing. Claiming that giving them your money will make them not work as hard to get your money is something else entirely. Do you really think they care about your $15 monthly subscription, or your $100 expansion purchase? Are you really all that full of yourselves?

    And we found the one person who doesn't know how games work. If we go by your argument, is any game ever "done"? What about bug fixes? What about patches? Every game has those. When is a game truly "done"?
    How joyous to be in such a place! Where phishing is not only allowed, it is encouraged!

    Reasons to pre order if you are not starving or have financial problems:

    Pro:
    -You get a bonus
    -You have it out of the way and need only to log in on release
    -You make grown man cry on the forum

    contra:
    You may not have time to play when it releases
    You may need the money for something else later
    You may have lost interest

    Yeah, I think I will preorder
