Ok, I understand they like money. Who doesn't? But let's just get this straight...1. We have to pay for the game & its expansions individually, decent retail price (whereabouts of $15-$45 each).2. We have to pay a monthly subscription of ~$15.3. Microtransactions because 1 & 2 aren't enough for some reason.I'm ok with microtransactions bringing in extra cash if people dont mind paying for cosmetic stuff. What I'm not ok with is the fact that I'm paying a sub to fuel development for the next expansion (which I'm going to end up paying retail for on release) instead of getting content for the current expansion (and let's be honest, cataclysm had abysmal content patches). If they aren't going to give me monthly or every other month content patches, then what am I paying for?Another thing that bothers me about these micro-transactions is that they have to look shinier and prettier than in-game obtainable ones because they need to sell themselves. Imagine if the Heart of the Aspects used the Mottled Drake for example. It's a reskin of a drake model in the game already. Sure, some people would buy it but it's not as shiny nor as popular.Really, there is a line and I think Blizzard is dancing on it.
