wouldn't it be cool if the mods banned pan from the WoW forums?!?!?!!!!!
hes so stupid OMG
no reason to BAN him, he hasnt done anything horribly wrong. the mods would be misusing their abilities if the banned him because a few members didnt like what he said. let him have his opinion, i just dont see the point in posting it and wasting his time.
Why is blizzard being stupid? They are gonna loose like half of their customers by doing this. For all the 11 - 15 year olds. Their parents are gonna be like wTf?... Im paying for a game every month?
yeah.. the idea of paying monthly for something she already hates me doing didnt go over too well.. sneak the game cards past them and you're good to go. I'm sure TRUE wow fans can pull this off.. I did!
Same thing goes for FFXI. Sitting for 1-8 hours doing nothing with LFG up sure is a blast.
This is exactly why so many people are switching to wow. Somehow, the makers of wow also made it so almost any age group has fun playing it. (other than maybe 10 and down) That's a big plus for them which keeps their game popular.
Blizzard makes huge amounts of cash off of just the selling of thier games, WoW not included. if the price was lower, it owuld be more understandable, but its more likely WoW sales alone could keep the game running for the next year or two
but that wouldnt be too smart for blizzard now would it.. think of it logically: blizzard releases wow without any kind of monthly fee, its fine for the first year or so, everyone loves the game. All the sudden blizzard says, okay now you guys have to pay $15 a month to keep playing our game. Dont you think that would make people stop playing? I sure as hell would be a bit pissed.. this way you're used to it from the start.
its called expansion packs. and yes i pay it
i think that the fee should be smaller, i agree with pan there, or have a deal like first 6 months are cheaper, or like, theres different plans, like so much money for 10 hours a week and less, another amount for 10-14 and another for 14+ or something...
That'd get too complicated.. I do think blizzard should have given you a little bit more money for buying in bulk (6 months instead of one) saving two bucks a month isnt too much.. they should make it like five..
maybe you're not comprehending the cost of the game correctly, like many members from the official WoW forums often do. its likely blizzard will be paying off bills for making the game for quite some time, as well as keeping up with maintainence bills. no profit has been made on the game yet, and no profit will be made for a while. yeah blizzard had plenty of money to back themselves up, but thats unrelated.
There is no f***ing way u can convince me that every player of WoW has to pay $15 or â‚¬15 or whatever to maintain the servers. No way blizz needs that much money just for the servers and stuff.
But lemme get this straight, you are willing to pay the 50 or 60 bucks to buy the game with a whole month free (whoohoo -_-) and then after a month u will pay another 15 bucks, and another, and another etc. U r insane, its not gonna be worth it. Ok it may take more money and time to maintain an mmorpg server then a diablo 2 server or a warcraft server and there is also the development cost and the cost for the new stuff being added but 15 bucks is just to much. Oh sure WoW may be a cool game but im not willing to pay 15 euro's a month (i live in Holland), im a poor student with my other monthly expenses and sure i can survive with â‚¬15 less but i wont. Just like Ragnarok Online, EQ en about every other mmorpg, there will be "private" servers for freeand i think ill just play on those.
Pan said he played beta and it sucked, it was stupid and boring etc. But thats whats beta is for, u play, u report the stupid and boring stuff and if enough players do it, blizz will change it.
Do not count on there being private servers, unlike other companys. Blizzard WILL hunt them down, and shut them off within a matter of days. That is what they did for all the private Beta hosting servers. That is what happened to got-wow.net
It's just hilarious how you're all arguing about the monthly fee, when there's tons of people playing it right now, have jobs, don't mind paying, and enjoy it. If it's such a disgrace in the first place in your point of view, leave it alone, go play another game, and stop upsetting yourself over it. Go enjoy something YOU like.
yeah leave it alone, if you dont want to play, then dont. stop complaining to us we don't really care.
stop complaining, if you dont wanna pay, dont play.
yeah pan thats a good idea really great i agree with u
but we want to play be we dont want to pay smart ass
too bad, you will have to pay to play. end of discussion.
Oh noes i sacrificed one playstation game per six months for the monthly fee!
Frankly the upside to the fee is that it keeps twelve year olds that are there just for shits and giggles like in war3 and sc. It feels good to have an intelligent conversation on a blizzard game.
