I want to start this thread out by saying, I love WoW, and I love playing it.
With that out of the way, I feel like this needs to be said. As consumers we have a great responsibility, it is our jobs to show the company's we support what we want. If you, like me feel that things like cross realm grouping should be a part of the subscription cost, then it is your responsibility to stand up.
BoA Mounts/pets in the pet store.
Additional monthly cost for remote AH/guild chat.
No Spawn installations on SC2
No LAN mode for SC2 tournaments,
No Replays with Friends in battle.net, causing issues for co-casting.
We have allowed micro transactions to permeate a monthly subscription based game. As consumers, we have shut up and allowed this to happen. If you like me feel that Blizzard is going to far, then our only reasonable course of action is to stop supporting them.
I love your game Blizzard, I love the friends I have made in it. But at a certain point I have to stand up for fair, and good business practices, that respect the people who have and continue to support you. And so if the Real-ID cross realm grouping service does become a premium. I will be forced to stop subscribing to WoW.
Please listen and respect your consumers, please do not attempt to nickle and dime us for services that should be included in the cost of the game. I know we have allowed this to happen for years now, but you are crossing the line. And I for one will look into free WoW alternatives if you continue to cross it.

Jul 14th 2011 1:37AM I think he is still holding on to a lot of bad blood from when the WoW Insider show left WCradio. John Bain is one of the nicest people you will ever meet, Totalbiscuit is an asshole.
Jul 14th 2011 1:05AM In one of the last Blue PLZ episodes he has done He spent about 40 minutes talking about how much he hates Mathew Rossi. No joke.
Jul 13th 2011 10:49PM Do you think that as a community, if we cry and whine enough. They might actually re implement permanent tree of life form. God I miss that, so much.
Jul 13th 2011 10:47PM BC was the most fun I have ever had playing WoW, a good raiding progression system, multiple raids per tier, and hell. I even miss atunements. I really wish Blizzard would go back to the way they used to produce, and protect content.
Jul 13th 2011 10:45PM I think it shows alot of class to talk positively about someone (Totalbuiscut) Who has acted unprofessionally towards you guys in recent shows. Although I don't agree with everything you guys say, and the stances you take. It is cool to be professional even when other people make the choice not to be.
I say this as a massive TB fan. And a long time reader of WoW Insider.
Turpster still owns you all however.
