I just did this today. Curse you, Blizzard! D:At least they aren't getting more money for the Cata CE from me. >,>
$40 for a pet? (And let's face it, that's what the majority of people will purchase this for)I can't believe they have the cheek to have a go at goldsellers, at least they blatantly rob you instead of doing it insidiously.
I just purchased a virtual ticket today. Looking forward to watch BlizzCon with some friends, lots of junkfood and beverages.
As much as I REALLY want the murloc pet, like the celestial steed, I will have to pass. Blizzard, shame on you. My $30 a month isn't enough?
It would be fascinating to see the stuff from BlizzCon, and the pet is a definite plus, buuuuut...I'd rather spend that money (and then some) on the Cataclysm Collector's Edition. And that's even if I have the funds.
Basicly, as you can watch blizzcon on youtube afterwards since there are people recording it, you're buying the pet for 40 dollars and to watch blizzcon a bit earlier than on youtube.
They should give the mount out to people who watch the stream in my opinion, I don't think I can justify spending that amount of money on it. What time does it broadcast btw? Can't find it on the site (That should be in the FAQ or advert surely?)
Hate to say it but
Yah people whining about this sound like the guys that complain that Wrestlemania whatever is a pay per view event.I mean why not just get tickets to Wrestelmania and go later? right? I mean its such a rip off to pay like 40 bucks to watch Wrestlemania live from your living room.
I still don't get the point of BlizzCon, much less buying a virtual ticket for information you'll get regardless.It'd be like buying tickets to merely watch the games at Gen Con.
