    Right at the start of the World of Warcraft beta we asked you if you'd be buying the game when it came out. Now that everyone's had plenty of time to see (and for many of you, play) the beta, we'd like to get your opinions again. Do you plan on purchasing the game when it comes out? Make sure to vote!

    If it costs money to play i highly doubt i will play it without hacks. Its just to much money to shell out for one game.

    unless the fee is pretty small, i won't be playing. I don't mind paying more in the beginning, but to pay monthly...i just don't like it.

    dude i dont see why everyone bitches about a monthly fee. this game will be A LOT better than diablo 2 or any other free game like that. they will have MANY MANY updates, features, and new items. they will add more things as years go on. they will have 24 hour constant support, and they will have the best service. the game will last a longggggg time. there is so much stuff in the game. you are just cheap not to pay a monthly fee. before you know it, most of the games that you will want will probably be pay to play.

    Monthly fees are a way to get money from idiots who think its worth it... I's rather ide my bike or do push-ups then play a gmae that costs me monthly... THEN AGAIN I LOVE DOING PUSH-UPS EVERYONE DROP DOWN AND GIVE ME TWENTY!

    Yeah I voted to see monthly fee... if its above 10 bucks a month, no way... it probably will be :/

    If the fee is under 14.99 a month, I will be playing this game with my Warcraft Clan.

    Any kind of fee might hold me back, but I might consider it. It just depends on what that pocketbook looks like :D

    so they expect me to pay 70$ (can) to buy a game, I can ONLY play If i keep handing more money over every 30 days...

    Are you ****ing insane? so if the fee is 15$, in a year after buying the game I will have to spend 250$ to play a game like WOW? Not to mention this is a game coming from Blizzard, who couldn't patch games for shit, me thinks they put monkeys together to test balance in games like warcraft III.

    I'm not stupid, This is just another sad attempt for blizzard to make a desperate grab for more money

    where the hell do you think your money is going? part of it is going to help pay for the people to make patches. WoW will have WEEKLY updates. balance fixes and/or new additions. desperate? no. every company wants to make money. sure, 15 dollars a month may seem like $180, but it is small because it is like 50 cents a day. less than the cost of a hamburger at mcdonals if you had one every day for a month.. it won't cost 70 dollars either, more like 60 or 50. besides, who says you are going to play for a year? the first month is free and if you dont like it you can cancel it till a later date.
