@Pamoya once again, people make random claims that they think sound good, but have no bassis in realityAny company with an acounting department worth its salt, makes mass donations yearly to offset tax. Now blizz would have made a charity donation to offset their income tax regardless of if the pet was for sale or not, they just get to advertise it now.Giving away money to charity for the purpose of off-setting tax is in the best interest of the shareholders, thus your point is invalidI would describe this as Win + Win + LoseBlizz gets tax offsets and good publicity + only has to give away 25% of 48hrs worth of pets alesCharity gets some moneyPlayers pay for a pet PS i'm not angry at them for being pure or not, i'm angry and all the blizz lovers who seem to be aplauding them for somthing they would have done anyways.Its like going to work, doing what you get paid to do, and then wanting everyone to tell you how great you are for doing it.I understand people are happy about the charity aspect, but blizzard would have donated a sizeable amount of money to charity anyway for tax reasons.so, that leaves us with one logical conclusion, they only tied it into the pet sale for the image it would provide pet sales.
