50% off is nice. I don't think realm transfers should be totally free anyway, regardless as to the traffic level of the realm you're on. Maybe throw a bone out there for long-term subscribers like, "Hey! You've been here for a few months....here's a free realm transfer code!" or something like that.Which is kind of where Rift got it right - they offer subscriber bonuses both in-game (like their equivalent of heirloom gear and XP/PvP bonuses) and real-money (additional game time, free transfers) for people who subscribed for different periods of time. I wish WoW would do that...After nearly 9 years of subscribing consistently, I'm sure I'd have a nice little set up going on.I've heard a lot of people saying they think all the character services should be $10. But good grief....Could you picture it? People would be faction changing and race-changing all the time. It'd be enough to give you whiplash.Also...Word up for the integrated launcher. I've been waiting for that for a looooong time. I really hope they improve the look, though. I know those images are BETA, but yeesh....Boring.
Online/offline modesi thought that with all blizz games you had to be online or are they changing starcraft and D3
I wonder, with the new client will we no longer get a WoW log-in screen? The ever-changing background been tradition with each new expansion.
The new UI looks a bit too Microsoft-y for my tastes but I do like the idea of one universal launcher.
I know a guy who has 4 full refund for transfers ... According to the laws of my country, any online transaction can be fully refunded within 7 days. I don't know where you are, but open a ticket, worth a shot.
A Battle.net client that includes all...Wonder how it works in Asia servers (especially mainland China which doesn't have Diablo III).
You can use the /played command ingame to see how much time you've played an individual toon, and add all your toons together. The Altoholic addon also displays information like that.
Meh. 8AM EST on the 11th and the character service sale's still going. If you held off to the very end, now's probably your last shot. It'll probably drop off when they do realm restarts.I decided to transfer my SoR hunter off my dead account to an active one. It's still working.
I wonder when this launcher comes out I'm intrigued and interested if it won't come out in till 5.4
