i dont get it, you might not like what Jack says but he has neither QQ'd nor flamed, nor ttrolled, nor first'd.....since when do people downvote for not holding a popular opinion?as far as i can see, the OP was downvoted for succesfully having a different opinion.I agree, that vanity pet/mount stores are bad. We have now shown blizzard they don't need to give us these little perks now. Why should they when we will happily shell out 10 bucks a pop.I agree that if charity was the actually purpose (and not some excuse to calm the player base) of these pets you or blizzard should just send make a wish a check for XXX amount of dollars and be done with it. They way Blizzard is doing this shows Charity is not its motivation.As far as i can see, the OP made some very valid, if cynical, points and was downvoted?The pets are cute, i'd like one, but will i pay for one? no.There are those that will say i already AM paying for in game content.Let me put it this way: If you have membership to a gym, and oay a monthly fee, where they maintain the equipment, get new gym equipment, provide gym towels and showers, training advice etc...And then they come out with their own clothing and accessories line.......there are those who would say "but you already pay for the gym monthly, why not buy some clothing, or a gym bag. Its pretty, and doesn't give anyone who has our stuff an advanatage at the gym. its just optional."I would say: Thats not what i pay for, i pay a monthly fee for everything to be all inclusive. I'm not against the gym selling their own cstuff, and i'm not against people buying the gynms brand. But do i think its a douche of a move for the gym that used have EVERYTHING be all inclusive, start trying to sell stuff to people who are already members? YES Douche of a move.But if poeple are happy, and them gym is happy go for it. Will i pay for any of these vanity extras? no. If you want to go and buy a pet from the blizz store i'm cool with that.
