I am struggling not to post words that the filter does not want us to post but…
This is a pretty foul move. One of the most expensive mounts on the game, one that matches up with the Traveling Tundra and the Yak stuff line for the expan… And now it’s being “taken away”?
This really seems like Blizzard is trying to get people to panic (it’s working) and buy a ton of tokens in order to get it in time.
That’s really foul and disgusting to me. I don’t know how else to feel about it.
I’ve been playing WoW since Vanilla, which I know no one gives a rat’s behind about, but it’s been a big part of my life. I even met my Fiance on here. WoW has been a really big deal in our lives. But recently, we keep seeing these things being done that keep looking more and more cash grabby. It’s been hard to stay supportive of what is going on. This is just adding to the long list of things.
I almost feel betrayed, honestly. I know it’s silly to feel that way over VIDEYA GAME, but it’s just becoming more and more obvious that the company is turning more into “How can we milk as much as we can over people?”. This time, someone at their monthly meeting suggested causing mass panic over one of the most expensive and useful mounts in the game becoming retired in order to drive up token sales. Again, it’s silly to feel betrayed by a video game, but that’s how I’m feeling right now. It’s one strange choice after another, and my eyes are being opened to what is really going on… And I don’t like it.
Don’t get me wrong though, I am a big fan of retired stuff. I have the old Grimtotem Spirit Guide, Oil stained wolves, and even some Grub pets that were not meant to be tameable. The vampire battling and the Arcanite Ripper from the event. The list goes on! Should these things come back? No. The items were for an event that we all were told was a limited time thing. We knew from the start it wasn’t going to stick around, and neither were the items. The pets? They were all glitches and were never intended to stick around. Some have come back in spirit beast form though (Which I was actually very bitter about, a different shade of color for the spirit wolf would have been the least they could have done). But pulling out one of the most expensive, most useful, and most sought after mounts for people who don’t have it yet just for the sake of driving up sales? That’s really shady. It was done out of nowhere, conveniently when things started to look bad in the income department for WoW, whether it be from issues in game or issues caused by out of game actions.
I know that no one in Blizzard, not even the blues, will read my message. Half of you guys wont read it either. But please rethink what is being done. Again, I’m struggling not to make the filters upset here… This is a really foul and shady thing to be doing. If it was known from the start it was going to be retired, fine. But don’t retire something just for the sake of getting people flustered and panicked so they buy a ton of tokens to get it in time. That’s just gross.
