Great cause ...thinking about actually buying both. But...I hope they don't make this a habit...but if they do...they should always link it to a Charitable organization.WoW will turn into another cash shop run game (if they don't).
Son of a lich...
Bought both. MOAR PETS! *_*
Hey...I've been staring @ lil KT...does he do anything else besides watching his back? lol.
Eh, I prefer this method to having to deal with buying countless Trading Cards to try and get a pet so Blizzard, you have my money for now. Until the friggin' Spectral Tiger Cub comes out. *sigh*
I think people are just looking at the natural progression of things....WoW launched, and if you wanted to play on another server, you rolled a new character or waited to see if a world migration fit your needs. Or if you didn't like how your character looked, or ended up not liking the race or faction, you rerolled.And people said that Blizzard would never let you pay to change your name, or server, or anything else. Not that long ago, people were saying that Blizz would never let you change your race. And those things aren't just cosmetic (racials?).So now they launch a storefront to easily exchange $$$ for an ingame item. How long before Activision Marketting says "Y'know, we could stand to make another million this quarter. That new flying mount, the winged horse thing? Yeah, that's going to be $49.99 through the store."Edit:I can only speak for myself, but I think the concern is more that it could happen. Not that it will.
Starsmore: Sure they have, but usually when they've had some way to wiggle out of a previous public statement. This one blatantly says 'no game-changing buyable items' and if Blizzard wants to reverse that (which they can do, I suppose) then on top of all the viable arguments against that they're going to have to deal with the mini-PR crisis of having this fairly objective statement linked all over the place is also going to cause them problems.In the ideal, perfectly free market, the only thing keeping a company successful is their credibility. If Blizzard did something like that it would be proof that they don't stick to their word, which damages their credibility, and there's plenty of other companies out there offering plenty of other MMOs.Getting consumers to care or do any research, on the other hand...
Wait. So would the KT pet kill Mr. Bigglesworth if faced with such a foe?GAME-BREAKING?
Hmm... I don't feel comfortable having a pet of a Lich that I have killed... Just doesn't sit right with me...Feels like it will grow 10x taller and start shooting Frostbolts at me...
I just tried to order both, and i think the site is broken :(
