You can explain it ten ways to sunday and it doesnt change the fact that we deserved so much better for our years of payments. How about Xpac and Playable race based on... Ethereal? Satyr? Arakkoa? Ogre (how over due is that, Ogre tank ftw!)? Centaur? Naga even? But we get Pandas? Not OK. We payed for it to be developed. NOT OK

You paid for access to Blizzard's World of Warcraft servers at their discretion and nothing more.

@ash.p.liu and those who rated his comment upWhy don't you ask Netflix how well that policy works with customers in America. See in this country we are free to pay or not pay, log in or not log in, or go to another one of the 1000 viable companies down the road. There is no gov. mandate (yet) And we get a lot more for our money than the 'honor' of using some companies wonderful product (again see Netflix and many more in history). And then we get to say whatever we want about it wherever we want. Sounds like maybe you aren't used to freedom.

@ajdavidson: I think you confuse the right of freedom with the rights granted by a purchase of a WoW subscription.You are certainly granted the right to your opinion and your ability to express it through the right of freedom of speech, bestowed upon you by the American Constitution. You are further entitled the freedom to express your approval or disapproval of Blizzard's direction of the game through continuing or discontinuing your subscription.None of this, however, is granted through your rights as a purchaser of a WoW subscription. Through the Terms of Agreement, you pay solely for access to Blizzard's WoW servers, which they can take down for any reason at any time. You do not pay to own your characters, for Blizzard to develop Nagas or Ethereals or Satyr as playable races, or for them to write in Turalyon or write out Rhonin. You are also certainly not granted a right to be "rewarded" for your history of payments with your continued subscription unless by doing so you are taking part in a specific marketing promotion or rewards program, such as the Annual Pass.In short, paying grants you access to WoW servers. Being an American citizen grants you freedom of speech and freedom of discontinuing your patronage. Neither grants you the right to make Blizzard accept your agenda as their own.

@ash.p.liuThats what Netflix thought. In short we have a lot to say as customers. Thats free market 101. Customer is king. We have all the power because we know they don't have any servers without us. And we each are free to decide what our payment means to us and what we expect for it and how, when, and where to voice what we feel about it. Even you. What you don't have the right to do is tell other people what their payments mean to them. Why would you even want to?
