World of Warcraft tokens go on sale April 7th

No more gates.

Looking forward to paying for your World of Warcraft subscription with in-game gold? You don’t have long to wait at all; the WoW Token will be going on sale after maintenance tomorrow, April 7th. Tokens can be purchased for $20 of real money and sold via a special in-game interface, with the initial price being pegged at 30,000 gold.

Once the tokens are live and being sold by players, the sale price will fluctuate based on demand and availability, so that 30,000 gold figure is unlikely to last long. Which direction it will shift, meanwhile, is an open question; you’ll be able to find out tomorrow.

Fantastico shaw sbst Something like that has never bothered me in my playing time in FF14. My fun playing the game is not tied to the whispers I get on the major cities.

shaw sbst Fantastico You like getting 20 RMT tells a minute? Okay then. I’d prefer not to, and PLEX is the solution.

Fantastico Oh dear lord please no!
Keep all these stupid, compulsive-enticing-behavior items out of the game I like.

Zarkov People don’t hate Blizzard, people just don’t like WoW in it’s current state. Just because it pulls big numbers doesn’t mean any of their complaints or criticisms of the game are moot.

Zarkov To be fair, I think a lot of the hate is BECAUSE WoW has more subscribers than any other MMO.
I mean this two ways: First, simply put there is always that section of the population that hates whatever is popular. It’s edgy and cool to not be into what everyone else is into. *flips hair and lights cigarette*
Second, and the more rational reason of the two, is that WoW is so big that many people feel like it holds back the MMO Industry.And in some ways it does. With WoW around (or realistically any MMO that ends up on top), it is really hard for any other MMO to make it. This limits innovation in the genre. A game can introduce some really cool concepts and ideas, but if it isn’t WoW, the game will never last. A lot of people think WoW isn’t fresh and innovative enough to deserve all of the praise and success it gets at this point in time. 10 years ago, it was a different story. But 2015 WoW feels so stale to some that they despise it for being so loved. It can be frustrating to see WoW sit on top with millions and millions of subscribers and see a brand new MMO with some really cool and fun ideas fall on its face and die. If you think of MMO players as a finite market, then WoW is hogging all the subscribers and not letting anyone else eat at the table.
Now, to clarify my stance here, I love WoW. It’s my main MMO and has been for 9 years. It probably will be for 9 years more. WoW is home to me in the MMO world. So I’m not saying anything bad about the game. I’m just saying I can see why it’s cool to hate WoW. It’s the big thing to do. Sometimes with good reason, sometimes they’re just trying to be the cool kid on campus.

That said though, it always cracks me up when I see people say, “People still play this game?!”  …Yeah, people still play WoW. xD And a whole lot of them too. :P

Giggitybits usagizero RooWoods Zarkov I used to play melee pet-less Hunter for my overworld stuff, and then switch to more conventional tactics for dungeon party play. Why? Because then I could. I can’t now, which is one of the many reasons I no longer play WoW.

RooWoods Zarkov It’s not just the lowering of difficulty, it’s the removal of ammunition, reagents, the ability to make alt builds, specialized class quests and crafter quests, and just a watering down of the game world, lore and player agency in the overall game.
It’s like someone selling you a 4-legged table, and then after you’ve purchased this table and have been using it in your home for several years, coming into your house and removing one of the legs. Blizzard has been steadily removing the texture that made WoW interesting to play.

There has been a continuous wave of people crying on the WoW forums since November 2004.
