I think you all are kind of looking at it the wrong way...What have you gotten for 5-7 years of loyal game play?- Friendships with those you've met in game- New content every few months which you got to enjoy to it's fullest while it was current- Countless "nerfs" erm, changes to hard to get achievements which grant unique mounts or pets.- Limited time only holiday pets which those who've quit will never gain access to. Ever.- An array of new features which didn't use to exist, such as LFR, better PVP queuing system, LFD..I could go on and on. The point is, that while some of these things are things blizzard -has- to do, to actively retain customers, some of these things are things blizzard has -chosen- to do, for it's current subscribers. To say we've got "nothing" in 5-7 years is ludicrous. All that being said, I am a tiny bit jealous I don't get my own free level 80 .. but the idea of getting to see some of my friends in game I haven't seen in forever since they quit playing .. and having an awesome new mount to ride around on, that I didn't pay a dime for in the blizzard pet store... sounds pretty awesome to me.I think that life when it comes right down to it, is what we make of it. We can choose to see the darkness, or celebrate the light. While it might make me a bit of a pollyanna to apply this thought process to a video game .. I find that as a whole I am a happier person, in game and outside it when I stop trying to feel like I am getting screwed all the time.
