The problem is not the gameplay.I appreciate the exclusive in-game cosmetic items obtained with other purchases - collector's editions, blizzcon tickets, cards, plushes, refer-a-friend, you name it. It makes you special, because you own something that not everybody can obtain easily (or without a good amount of money, at least).But what's the meaning of exclusive items... which aren't exclusive at all? To get them, all you have to do is take a little more money out of your pockets. In my guild, some of the guys who bought the celestial steed now regret it: they wasted money on something that isn't even "cool", as a lot of people got it.And anyway, this AH thing is actually a change in the gameplay - the AH _is_ part of the game. A game in the game.Of course Blizzard is free to sell wathever they want, and people is free to use their money as they like. But - excuse the words - I feel pissed off; when I subscribed to this game, I expected to have everything that everybody else could (and I'm sure it was written somewhere). Now, we have this pay-more-to-get-more. I simply hate it, it's like a break in the rules. In a free-to-play game with purchasable extra content, the rules are clear... and I used to hate them! Suddenly, I like them.For me, it looks like the time to quit playing is getting close. Gone is the epic feeling of raids. Gone is the pleasure of levelling and discovering the world (well, I guess it only happens once anyway - or twice, if you grow up on two factions). Gone are the fair rules of payment. Eck, even my old guild friends are gone and I fail to get in touch with the new ones - they're all looking only at the latest gear(score) and raids. The time of spam and bots has come.

You complain about the loss of epicness from raids, and also complain that you want to have everything?You can't have it both ways. :/
