They're getting a little money hungry as of late paid faction changes, paid race changes, paid vanity pets. $14.99 a month from ~11 Million people and another expansion coming within the next year or two apparently isn't enough.

The 14.99 we all pay (or less, if you sign up for more than a month at a time), is to make it profitable for Blizzard to keep up their servers for everyone else to play on - to make it more profitable then having the same team make a new game to generate revenue, in fact (and if it wasn't profitable, they couldn't keep it going). You want more than is given in the basic game, like a race change, faction change, or new pet? You pay for it. No one is making you get these things, so if you don't want it, don't get it. For those of you that aren't getting it: why are you complaining?It doesn't affect your gameplay. If you are getting one of these extra services, you need to give them something to make it worth putting in the development time and server time to put these changes in place. Doesn't seem too unreasonable to me.

The thing that upsets me about these paid services is the fact that I DO want the services, but don't want to shell out so much cash for the service. There are other games which offer similar services for a much lower price, or for no price at all.

How long does it take to level an alt 1-80? 40 hours?A faction transfer change cost 30$. unless your time is worth less then 75 cents per hour, I think you do well to do that if all you want is a character on the opposite faction.
