    I cant afford another 15$ and another 130$ for WoW (or wahtever the cost is). I'm going to play warcraft ft for now and I'll start WoW because it may own diablo 2 lod. However, it will be from a computer center where they pay everything and i'll have perfect connection. Costs less and allows you to develop your hero.

    first off, blizzard cant patch for shit. weekly updates? if anything i would be surprised if they come up with something new in a month, monthly fee or not. Blizzard is just looking for easy money, face the truth.

    15$ is low, I'm actualy expecting it to be 20$ here, whether or not u have 15$ where u are. Where are these hamburgers that cost 50 cents? best I get from Mcdonalds is 1.00, and guess what, MCdonalds suck. Please, get a real entry level job. then u can spend ur hard earned pay check on a stupid game. when u start making money yourself u will realize that 180$-240 dollars is a hell of a lot of money.

    IF my friend can get me the game will be 70$. Normal store prices will be pushing 80$. Who says I won't play for a month. that must menas I won't like it cause it will suck. I have played War III for 2 years straight, throwing it in at least 5 times a week. if WOW is supposed to be "such an amazing well supported game" and all the bullshit I would want to play fora full year like War III, But IM NOT STUPID and I am not going to waste my money

    Yep i think i'm with every one else waiting for that fee part. I have played other games with monthly fees and i personally have found them to suck so thats one thing against a fee. plus blizzard shouldnt go for weekly updates thats going to require more people and therefor they will need a few to keep that up i say just work up the story really big befor it comes out then update it monthly maybe. it would also be stupid for blizzard to start to charge fees now

    If Blizzard has GOOD patches, and new areas, new items, new monsters, blah blah blah, pretty much a new game within a year, I'll definately get it. Why? If you get into the game, it's fun. If I were to get it, I would want to get in the game. And maybe we could have a BF Channel.

    Eh, I don't have time to have my life sucked away into some imaginary world for the next 3 years while sending them my hard earned money. Now, if they charged you for like everytime you logged on and accumulated like 10 hours of game play, sure, but a flat fee...man, I wouldn't even play that thing more then 10 hours a month. Call me crazy, but food, electricity, and gas mean more to me then Blizzard.
    RIP OFF

    Now, I didn't say I pay for it exclusively, I help pay a good chunk of it though, so in my mind, that qualifies. My mom sees it as "I live here, I have a job, I can share in the bills", so I do. Quite nit picking to try and help people see that getting WoW is the best thing to do, you want to waste your life away, go ahead by all means.

    Oh, I'm not. If you do recall my post in this thread, I'm not planning on buying it if it has the monthly charge. I'm just questioning you paying bills at such a ripe age.
