A lot of you are delusional, the idea that you're giving them money to "support" them is something you should rethink. The reason you pay them is because you have to. This level 100 boost is absolutely nothing. It's to bring in people they already know played their game back in. You may be unaware of the fact that Blizzard is a business and nothing more. They've never been any of your friends or buddy's. You paying them for the time to play is the end of the transaction.
Can you use them without the account being active?If I multibox in the future it'd be neat to have some free level 100s.
imagine complaining about blizzard trying to bring players back.
The point is not to reward current players with their 10000th alt, that's what the mount and pet are for. The point is to pique interest in people who haven't played in a long time, and allow them to join the November celebrations.
This is great! Maybe some of the people I used to play with will play again.
While I understand the desire to lure in returning customers with something such as this, it'd fare much better with the wider community (and help their subscription numbers) if paired with something akin to the "Veteran Rewards" program that City of Heroes used to have, where after X months of being an active subscriber you'd unlock small cosmetic items or options, service tokens, etc.
Where is our Loyalty gifts, why do you shower people that doesn't give a flying F about the game goodies and gifts ? I struggle to understand the logic behind this, nearly every other Sub and FREE TO PLAY MMO has a Loyalty or gift feature, yes it may be a money grab, maybe their way of keeping you hooked, but this is just a kick to the face to those that stuck with them through hard times.
The salt in this thread seasons my popcorn. Please continue.
So much negativity for a positive thing! It almost sounds like you'd rather have nothing at all, than the off chance someone else benefits from something you can't have. I say awesome! Glad to see Blizzard is giving more players incentive to play, the more the merrier!
Blizzard has rewarded its ACTUAL loyal and dedicated customers with 2 free premium mounts in the past 12 months, just for staying subscribed to the game for at least 6 months at a time. In fact, they not only gave you the mounts for free, they gave you a discount on your monthly subscription too."Loyal customers get nothing" - liars as well as ingrates? Yikes...
It pays to be unsubbed I guess.
