Blizzard is surveying WoW Classic players on character clone pricing

While the mere confirmation that Burning Crusade Classic will feature a level boost option, prompted a whole lot of debate in the community, another upcoming paid service seems to have escaped such controversy. Blizzard is going to be offering an option for player to shell out money to clone their characters so that they can keep one clone on a Classic Era realm and take the other into Burning Crusade.

But how much will it cost? According to a survey that Blizzard sent around to some players, it looks as though the studio is trying to figure that out. Blizzard sent out different possible cloning price suggestions to players, from $10 to $40, to see how likely those people were to ponying up for this service.

Of course, the bigger question is how much will the studio charge for character boosting, but rest assured that it’ll be more than a clone.

Zero. Should be included, since there is a sub fee to obtain it.

My timeline with WoW includes Cheevos, LFG and Sparkle Ponies being released long before Level Boosting. Unless I was just imagined all of that… o.O

I’m highly interested in seeing at what specific point, Blizzard will stop being the “at least they don’t have a invasive cashshop” company and how much this will break the playerbase, OR if they won’t care.

Because, narratively, people are always any greedy movements that Blizzard may commit, but at the same time, they’re always having a pretty silky safety net of players.

Is this why Bobby Kotick earns the BIG bucks and outrageous bonus compensation?

[Is one of the questions: “How many more staff can we fire before you as a player get upset and stop giving us money?”]

Seems like a silly idea for a survey. Who’s going to say they’d pay anything other than the minimum price. What people will actually pay is a different matter, of course.

They’re sending different surveys to different people. So person A gets asked “Would you buy a character copy for $9.99?” and person B gets asked “Would you buy a character copy for $19.99?” and so on. Then you compare the results.

I mean why wouldn’t they charge for extra bits? For good will? When you’ve reached their numbers good will is pretty irrelevant. People will love you or hate you and it just doesn’t matter what you do. It’s not like if they didn’t sell a copy service or not sell boosts a significant amount more of people would play or speak any higher of them. Might as well cash in on it.
