so its 15$ a month to play, and I'm getting a 1 day credit? OMFG THANKS FOR 50 CENTS BLIZZARD!!!

50 cents, multiplied by several thousand people, equal huge cut for Blizz. Be thankful you got 50 cents. :P

Those servers were out for 19 hours, so a free 24 hours compensation for all accounts with a character on those realms (I guess even for a random lowbie alt), whether you attempted to log in or not, seems more than fair to me.

Like damn Blizz. You draw my $15/mo direct. Like 24 hours of credit is anything but a nuisance.Wish they would be a bit more creative.....E.GGame Carders get hr creditsDirect Draw get a prorated G or emblem/hr outage compensationIf my toons were drawing gold or emblems for every hour of outage, I sure a hell would not be too worried about how long the outage was for - toons are at least getting some benefit. Some may say this would ruin the in-game economies ... I say not nearly as much as the server being down does.

Or you could be thankful that the game is so cheap in the first place.

@matt idc about 50 cents. I care about the fact we were on heroic faction champs when servers went down I didnt get my chance to get heroic justicebringer. Now that icecrown is out next week, a lot of raiders decided to chill out and not attend raids so my chances of gettin back in there are slim. since everyone will be focused on ICC 25/10@all who downrated. As a player who pays a monthly fee, withdrawn automatically, how is this credit really affecting me? I pay monthly, not daily. Last night I ordered a burger and they forgot to put cheese on it. If I ordered the burger from blizzard, the next time they'd compensate by giving me 2 pieces of cheese on my next burger. :). I don't need that extra piece of cheese, i wanted the damn cheese on my LASt burger! ^^probably a bad analogy, its close to lunchtime

So between compensation of any kind, and a stick in the eye, you'd prefer the latter...Huh. *shrug* To each his own I suppose. :POne day though you're going to quit WoW just like all of us will eventually in the long run. That one extra day may be after the day you quit, saving you your last $15 that otherwise would have gone to them a day earlier. Granted, there's really only like a 1/30 chance that'll happen, but hey, personally I prefer anything than the stick in the eye. :P

well i guess does look like im QQing. something's better than nothing.

Well, it's not the 24 hours I needed to finish the seasonal achievements, but it's fun to see them do anything about it. Sad I missed the achievement because of it, but it did get me to sign up for the wow.com guild.

If you confused whiners would stop and think about the last dozen or more times they did this, the extra time means that prepaid time runs out later, direct withdrawals happen later, etc.Check your account history -- you've probably had credits to your account before and didn't even know about them!

If you have direct draw from your account, why are you paying 15$ a month? After playing for almost 5 years at 13$ a month I've saved 5*12*2=$120. Basically, I've saved enough for 8 months of free play time (at your 15 $/mo rate.)
