It's a bit disconcerting that wowinsider.com is giving these guys any publicity. Let's stick to the facts here: 1. They provide no real service. 2. They want your money. 3. Businesses do not thrive by giving away more money than they take in. There might be some gullible people out there, but I see no sane reason to give a third party money for absolutely no service. Patch days happen and servers get full - live with it. Don't think you'll be banking just because you can't log on for a few minutes onto your WoW character. Again, there is no viable or sane reason to give people money per month just on a chance that you might break even because you can't log in for a certain amount of time during the month. It's like playing the lottery with no real chance to win.Anyway, it's a terrible waste of resources. Whoever came up with the marketing idea needs to lay off the bottle. Did you imagine some sort of scenario like: WoW Player 1: Damn, servers down for another 3 hours. WoW Player 2: Hah! You're stressing, but I have insurance. I've already made 2 dollars today. Another 3 hours? Sweetness! That's 40 more cents in my pocket. Let's hope servers are full tonight, I might even break even this month!WoW Player 1: Amazing, WoW Player 2!~ I'm here sweating out the downtime, and you're making cold, hard cash. If only *I* would have bought WoW Insurance!Get real. No one needs or wants this service. This company will be hardpressed to make back the initial cost to just host a website. In conclusion, offer a real, viable service before trying to scam math-challenged people out of a few bucks every month.

You've read my mind, I was typing pretty much the same thing....Regardless of weather you call it a scam or not, they are taking your money and providing absolutely no service whatsoever. This is a one way business model, you give them money, and they might give you money back. They can't provide any sort of service that will change the fact that you can't log in. Plain and simple, whenever somebody says that you can pay $1 and make $10, be very careful. What's worse here, is there is no guarantee that you'll get enough credits to even get real cash.Here's an idea, take the monthly fee that you would pay them, and put it in a savings account.

WI is simply throwing out an article on a new WOW related company. I did not see a promotion in any way. They had a quick article about the company, which created a lot of questions about how it could possibly work. They are simply trying to fill in the gaps.I believe that anyone who would read the article and IF they get a tingle of "ooooo this is cool" would also read a couple of comments and realize "ooooo this is questionable". I have a tough time imagining the first "oooo" happening...

So true. Anything that sounds to good to be true....is.

I totally agree. It's amazing how stupid these guys seem. This interview answered nothing, at least not for and my scam concerns.I don't need this server, I won't use this service. I have more chance making money off Google AdSense for my sites then off this crap.I think it's a stupid idea mainly because of your last point. Honestly, web hosting may be cheap but they're going to be losing FAR too much money to warrant anything anyway.

Psy, are you retarded? Did you even read the article? Why are you talking about a webserver? Jesus man ... get a clue.This service isn't any more risky than health insurance, car insurance, home insurance. You pay a premium to insurance companies for insurance "just in case". You may live your whole life and pay hundreds of thousands of dollars into an insurance plan and never have it pay out, because you are fortunate enough to not have anything happen to you or your property.How weird, a business that wants to make money? These guys should get a clue, nobody does that! HA-HA-HASome of you people need to take off the tin-foil hats and get a goddamn clue, not everyone is out to get you, you cynical bastards.
