@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.
