Jun 8th 2010 9:11AM So I for one will be paying for this for the following reasons
1. I love playing the auction house, its like role playing as a big fat capitalist pig, and i can get cash for the other parts of the game i like without so much grinding.
2. I don't get time to play the AH enough as in the evening I feel it cuts into my time with the other parts of the game, raiding questing etc
3. Now I get to do all my banking at lunch in work, its great fun and a nice way to take timeout
4. With this extra time at the AH, I've already tripled my haul this week (and thats with a 25 transactions cap), my bank alt is gonna be rich I tell you!!!
I disagree with some of the following common complaints.
No more bank alts: not for me I love my bank alt for postal storage and being a merchaing princess she has her own company(guild) bank, plus by using her with the remote app I get to keep my mains post all clear.
It gives players an advantage: well yes it does, but I had a disadvantage in that I get minimal play time dues to kids, family etc so getting the cash together for in game purchases has always been an uphill struggle, but now I have all the time in the world to play AH while commuting etc
Its no good without auctioneer addon: Now i love auctioneer but personally I make most of my money by knowing the going rate for a small subset of items i regularly trade in, I know the rates for most metal bars and ores by memory for example (sad i know) so I have no problem recognizing flip opportunities without auctioneer.
All in all I love this remote AH stuff, I get to enjoy playing AH whenever i want and when i'm in the game itself I am free to play and I have the cash to buy the thing i want.
I'm gonna be rich or did i already tell you that ;-(
Oh and 2.99 a month, thats peanuts for me, and I'd pay anything for the joy of hitting that that "claim gold" button!!!
Apr 24th 2010 10:58AM Just worked out why the magazine ships in the wrong season, its turns out the US uses astronomical seasons rather than the traditional season divisions used in europe meaning your summer doesn't start until half way through July at what in Europe is considered mid summer ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Season ).
As an international magazine it might need to consider its issue naming strategy or europeans are always going to consider it as being late even if it ships on time.
Apr 24th 2010 7:08AM I have a helpful hint for them, i would add it only the poll is on the US forums. I've never understood why there is a separate US and EU forum, all the EU posts are in English anyway, it would be better to have one forum site and a a section for regional issues.
Anyhow my helpful hint for the magazine would be why not try shipping it to europe in less than a month after it ships to the US. I subscribe to other international magazines and they all arrive with days of being released in the US. Why does wow magazine take over a month to arrive especially since the european copies are actually printed in france anyhow. Myself along with several of my friends all got our winter issues in spring. I expect to get the spring copy in summer, their international distrutribution is a joke, I won't be resubscribing
