This is not insurance. The most you can stand to gain is a few dollars. When your server goes down, and you want to play, you don't want a few dollars... you want to play, dammit! This is a sucker bet, and nothing more. Casinos have been making money from games like three card poker and keno for decades. Why should the internet be any different?Case in point - payday loan stores. If the average American had basic math skills these places would be out of business.

"When your server goes down, and you want to play, you don't want a few dollars... you want to play, dammit! "Out of all the comments, I agree with this one the most. I don't see how a few dollars a month is supposed to compensate me for my lost time. The subscription cost of WoW is so low already that in my eyes, it's as good as free. A few dollars over the course of a month is a meaningless amount of money.Now maybe if they offered some other kind of compensation -- like prizes! Say your downtime got you credits and they'd raffle off new PCs or PC hardware, or WoW TCG loot cards etc.All in all, regardless of whether it's a scam or whether it's worth it or whatever, I won't be using this service at all, because my server is very stable. I can't remember the last time I had to wait in a queue. No wait, I think there was one the day after WotLK came out -- but it was only a hundred people or so. It took like ten minutes to wait through.
