Jan 29th 2012 9:44AM The worst part about those damn dragons as a Affliction lock is the low dps we generate... only to have pugs complain your dps is too low! KICK HIM!

Oct 26th 2010 12:02PM I was at most of those round table sessions (er rather, long retangular table sessions) and I left with the impression Blizz was genuinely interested in what we had to say. There were times when conversations drifted off topic... often... BUT, there was still a lot of good ideas, thoughts and suggestions made. They weren't the most glamourous part of Blizzcon to be certain. In fact, some might have found it rather boring, but it was still interesting to hear everyone's thoughts on the various topics. What's more, their ideas and suggestions didn't really differ much from my own so I'm glad other people had similar notions about game content.

Apr 19th 2010 9:24AM These days, $25 isn't that hard to come by. (If you're a kid, maybe) But, I know people who blow $25 on magazines and coffee in one shot! It all boils down to what YOU want to spend YOUR money on.
When people say it seperates the 'haves' from the 'have nots' people need to asks themselves why they care so much about what others choose to spend their money on.
Why would someone care that I spent my money on a virtual horse? Do they care because they can't buy one and they might be a little jealous? Or do they care because it somehow upsets the purity of the game?
Apr 19th 2010 9:16AM I disagree. It's not greed. You don't HAVE to buy it. They are simply giving you an optional means to aquire something for your account. Greed has nothing to do with it.
When you walk into a store to buy something do you complain the store is being greedy because they charge for their products?
Apr 19th 2010 9:11AM Brilliant business strategy, in my opinion! I can look at it from both side of the coin. Yes, I can see how it can be a bit pricey for something you don't even own in the end. And it can certainly seperate the 'haves' from the 'have nots' to some degree. (How many time a day do we hear people saying how stupid we are for buying it?) But, in the same instance, I can see the genius of it from a business perspective.
I recently used Blizzard as an example of how businesses diversify their operations to increase profitability. In terms of revenue generation and maintaining player interest they have their act together. The pets and mounts are only the tip of the iceberg. We'll be seeing more and more of this in the future without question! The horse galvanized that theory!
