Either way, it's an optional enhancement - I don't really see what the problem is unless they totally gimp us on the customization already available.

Wow, after this, DLC in Diablo 3, and SC2 being 3 games, I'm glad I'm off the Blizzard boat, WoW's gonna become a microtransaction game that you have to pay $15 a month to play as well. It's a clear indicator of the direction Blizzard wants to go.

WoW is becoming a transactional game? You base this on what? Some vague story on WarCry? Get your head out of your biased ass before your post a statement like that.

If, they do offer some additional character customization options they will be purely cosmetic - similar to the name changes, server transfers, etc. People have been asking for quite a while for an ability to change sexes, races and factions - when Blizzard doesn't respond they're "not listening", and when they do they're being "greedy". I'm glad you're off the Blizzard bandwagon, the last thing they need is another emo'd up nerd rager on their forums.

They're a public traded company with stock holders, did you not graduate high school and fail to understand that?

Because clearly Blizzard isn't making enough money off World of Warcraft players already.

And GameZig? WoW's character customization is already gimp.

I'm happy they will look to offer more customizations in the future hopefully. While I might not pay for it with my character, it will be nice to see people who have chosen to distinguish their toons.

If they offer peg legs and eye patches cosmetically, I'll be there. Also beardier beards and better long hair.

@Leshrac: and how is offering paid for cosmetic options different from having microtransactions? Asian F2P games have them since ages. The only difference is that Blizzard would have people pay for their monthly fee AND for the microtransactions.

Which is honestly laughable, just as the fanbois that would fall for that or defend such greedy choices.

Watching the the ever-unpleasable MMO audience gripe about nothing is always amusing.

About nothing? LOL. God forbid players being unhappy at a software house trying to combine the subscription model with the cash shop model to try and milk them even more, uh?

Just what we need, Blizzard showing other developers another way to squeeze money out of us with content that should definately be part of the subscriptions we already pay, because their fanboys would eat up every kind of scam from them and defend them on top of it

It's optional and it doesn't affect gameplay. You're griping about nothing.

Agree with most on "it's optional and only cosmetic". I just wish WoW had armor dyes. Can't wait to level up a death clown.
