    12:40 I feel attacked. How did he describe me so well? Although, I made $80k/yr while working at Blizzard, got laid off and now I make $190k/yr. I loved WoW but my time is worth more than replaying it. Classic/TBH/WotLK was the reason why I wanted to work at Blizzard, but now I'm happy I got let go, it was the best thing to happen to me.

    so in the next expansion will it cost again 35$ per character?

  • Mr_Tea_Rexx

    can easily say activation has killed wow that much shows blizzard no longer have control over their product RIP WoW was fun when you were good while it lasted along with the Memories

    This is why I stopped playing altogether I hate the direction blizzard went and I hate what the did to the founders life work. They do not deserve 1 dolla of my money no matter how much I used to enjoy the game. I am looking forward to Mike morheimes games from his new venture. Will most likely be worth the wait.

    It’s arbitrary. They’re making you pay money just to pay money. They make more than enough with just 15$ a month from all of us that they won’t have to ever worry about money again if they put out good content. 35$ is just ridiculous. It’s a spit in the face after fucking us over the last few years and still expecting us to pay it like the good little pay pigs we are.

  • Wintyer

    if they were smart they make you pay for extra character slots over 1

  • Yer Dah

    Alot of money, but the way they look at it is, itll take you weeks to level a toon, but not very long working to get that money to pay for a toon transfer.

Well say no more! in FFXIV, you can play EVERY JOB CLASS WITH JUST 1 SINGLE CHARACTER! Im talking about 18 combat classes and 11 crafting/gathering classes each with their unique skills and mechanics and each with their own storyline quests! - Hey, starting to get bored of how your character looks? No worries! For just $10 bucks, you can purchase Fantasia from our game store and CHANGE YOUR CHARACTER LOOKS, GENDER AND RACE! Oh yes, i also forgot to mention that YOU GET A FREE FANTASIA IN-GAME AFTER YOU COMPLETE UP TILL A CERTAIN POINT OF THE MAIN STORY! HOLY SHIT! - So your friend suddenly moved to UK, he has to change servers or what we call data center to the UK one. You're gonna be lonely on your US server. WELL FEAR NOT! Starting from the next expansion Endwalkers, you can transfer your character to another country's data center anytime you want. What? How much? ITS FUCKING FREE OF CHARGE!

But at least try it...i mean since there is a FREE trial version of the game WHICH ALSO INCLUDES THE FIRST EXPANSION OF THE GAME THAT YOU CAN PLAY WITH NO TIME LIMITS AND LETS YOU LEVEL UP TO 60! Of course there are in game restrictions such as you cant add friends, use the marketboard, join a guild (or free company as we call it) etc etc. But if its just the gameplay and experience, you'd still have 80% of it right there, again, FREE! So whaddaya waiting for? Go try FFXIV NOW!! *Removes shameless salesman suit* Now if you'll excuse me...i still have a Draenei shaman and blood elf paladin to grind up to 70....yeesh.....

    Screw that. Bottom line without 20 minutes of rambling is this: the fact that your characters "aren't ready yet" is good news to Activision. It means (if you're not real bright) that you'll pay anything to continue. Money is their god, nothing else. And it's no longer Blizzard - it's all Activision. Blizzard exists in name only - joined to and held hostage by Activision.

  • Eliwood407

    I've never really watched Asmongold, I've heard a lot about him and the clips I saw of him were quite overwhelming or aggressive. Of course I did not have the context, and I am enjoying his views and interaction now that I give it a chance. Now with WoW players moving to FFXIV, I wanted to get their view and reaction to the game I play. Having quit WoW myself- albeit a short adventure from Cataclysm to Warlords of Draenor, I feel so sorry for all the players who have invested their life in a game that now disapoints them. Seeing a man's soul crushed by yet more terrible and greed ridden news is hard to watch, and I'm so sorry man :(

  • TheRealLink

    Also Asmon, sorry to bring it up in this video but should you ever do a server transfer in FFXIV, it moves your account, period. All 10 character slots included for $18.

    Really well spoken and analyzed, Zach. They are certainly in an interesting position for sure.

    I can't wait to spend $250 on 'Mists of Pandaria Classic'.

  • vaprex

    I know he's trying to speak for the player base, but he's complaining about the cost of playing TBC while being worth at least a few million. He's not exactly Pewdiepie, but he pulls in *at least* ~$40K per month between Twitch and HRless.

    • vaprex

      @Kenny McCormick Holy shit... Please review my first sentence: "I know he's trying to speak for the player base..." Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerburg wouldn't give a shit about a $120 cost to upgrade characters and play a WoW toon... The same is true for Asmon. I appreciate that he's making comments directed at the "average player base", but since WoW *IS* his own personal Golden Goose that lays the golden eggs that pays him millions, it's not like he's going to QUIT WoW because the TBC upfront costs were $80 more than he anticipated.

    • Kenny McCormick

      and you're fucking stupid for saying that. How does it not do well to his person that he speaks out about the price? Being rich does not mean that you dont give a f about "value"

    I was all excited for this when I heard it but, I got my vaccines, summer started, and I still havent even played burning crusade classic. Not touched wow yet in months. Its just meh now, weve been there done that, until they release a whole new game instead of just these crappy expansions and rereleases, this game will never be close to its original success.

      @Vindex World yeah cloning is basically to have your characters from classic wow put into BC, Back then it was free because whatever content update that came out just became the game from that point forward but now you can choose to play WOW from like 2005 (with classic) or from 2007 (with BC Classic)

    • Vindex World
      Vindex World

      I havent touched WoW for over 10 years now since original BC . tf they even mean with cloning? have character from classic wow put into BC? cause that shit was free back then. its weird to see what this game has become but seeing burning crusade pop up in my youtube, I was interested but now immediatly turned down xD

  • wulmpus

    hey we love you asmon bro ive never played WoW but because of you i like to stay in the loop and im sure they will change this, they are trying to milk there fans for all there worth.

    You know DAMN GOOD AND WELL it's to sell boosts and all the other shit they've spewed out with retail over the past few expacs lol. They're trying to nickel and dime everyone they can,even if it's by fucking what few players they have left. And you also know DAMN good and well ya'll are going to pay for EVERYTHING they ask for,instead of telling them to fuck off so they will change shit like it should be.

  • Jean S. Plescha
    Jean S. Plescha

    Of course they make it for money they got a ton of it from Boosts hah, you do not need cloning, just transfer all your chars to TBC, and if you already chose to have them in Classic Era, just reroll them. None of the boostinge tc is required to play the game guys, the leveling starts in Classic Era World the quests are the same the Dungeons are the same, you do not need to play both Classic Era and TBC, just play TBC and do the Classic Dungeons and instances etc, and when you choose to go to Outland you dgo that is it,

  • Alpine

    • Alfred Leite
      Alfred Leite

      You just hit 57 and you quit because people can boost to level 58 with shitty greens? What about someone like me who has 9 level 60's in Naxx gear already? How does some shitter in greens who doesn't know how to play his class hurt you? If anything, it should make it easier for you to get a raid slot, considering you already have experience in that class leveling it from 1-57, which these people don't have.

  • Wolfisvara

    "You think you do, but you don't." This is literally why they said that tbh. When they released wow it was fresh, unknown, it was actually magical. Trying to re-release this game and expecting the and magic when EVERYONE playing can access ALL the information about the game and its trajectory, you naturally get people who will be more efficient at the game and not "waste time" effectively ruining the magic. You thought you did, but you really didn't.

    • Wew Lad

  • PickleChip

    Tbh i dont really see a problem. Blizzard has been doing deluxe stuff for wow for a while now, same with character transfers and boosters. Also you dont need to use the clone, you can move your character for tbc for free when it comes out, the $35 is for a clone in classic and tbc

  • James Bond
    James Bond

    they didnt kill it, they improved it... that tasty boost

  • JB3

    The only point I don't agree with is the time frame you need to build hype. I think he forgets that people have been getting hyped for this the literal second WoW Classic came out. The marketing would be a waste of money due to already having your claws in people that play the game.

    • JB3

      Also not every single character will hit the end game in TBC - just like they didn't when it was retail. It's not a easy expansion - yes, its dumbed down to Shadowlands level of standards due to everything being min-maxed and all that work for content scouting being done years ago. But no - everyone will not complete it, most will stop on Vashj or Kael ... as long as they don't nerf bat the bosses early on.

  • Thomas Brandner
    Thomas Brandner

    honestly i don't think 35 $ is that much, since it's a one time payment right? and then you get to keep it there forever it's like i always hear people talk about how expensive tattoos are but in comparison to how long it lasts, it's not that expensive..... like it lasts for the rest of your life

    The fact you can buy a 58 character with gear and gold is so lame... People are so bad at wow and honestly should just stick to retail.

    • Alfred Leite
      Alfred Leite

      @Trent Oscar Yeah but that's never really a problem IMO, most of the best gear in the game is bind on pickup. Most gear sellable on the AH isn't going to be the BiS anyway. Even in retail even some of the easier to get mythic gear is way better than anything you're going to buy of the AH.

    • Trent Oscar
      Trent Oscar

      @Alfred Leite unless they add those tokens then they'll just buy enough to sell for a thousand gold and buy the best tradeable 60 gear in AH, which is all terrible except like the Krol blade and a handful of other pieces. It's just upsetting because classic was cool because you had to actually work and play a somewhat tough game to be able to get a 60. Which separated the weak from the chaffe lol. Now I see it turning into World of Warcredit: Overdraft edition

    • Alfred Leite
      Alfred Leite

      @Trent Oscar Not only that but they're stuck with apprentice riding and a 60% speed mount lol, with only 25 gold and terrible gear. Honestly Blizz kinda screwed these guys, the newbies who bought boosts are going to have a bad experience and a lot probably won't make it to 70 if they rolled a pvp server.

    • Trent Oscar
      Trent Oscar

      @Alfred Leite well of course it's going to be hilarious laughing at someone who should be 28 play a 60 trying to learn how to raid or do pvp and getting yelled at for sucking.

      Alfred Leite

      @Trent Oscar I doubt it, but all I can say is I have been SMASHING scrub 58's all day in hellfire peninsula and it's just free honor dude. I don't see the problem here.

    I'm not a hardcore player, never have been so i guess I'll never understand how you clear out content ina few weeks....I won't clear anymore than a tenth of the content before the next expansion. I waste all my time talking, dueling and pvp. I have a good experience winning duels, but lord have mercy my win rate in 2's is horrible, 3 non existent. Maybe I should learn how to be a hardcore player or get my friends to play it with me but that'd never happen. 🤷‍♂️

    Im late for the party it seems. It is sad to witness this downfall for what could have been a really great experience. But activision is ruining the good stuff of games. They did similar things for Warzone, which is a free br game. It could have been good but its dogsh!t. No anticheat, constant bugs, constant change of “meta” just constantly ruining what could have been a good fps game. Their ingame shop always worked, so thats interesting. How or why did Blizzard sold themselves to activision?

      It wouldn't affect you even if you have a level 60 character, this video is completely wrong. You don't have to pay money to transfer characters at all, it's completely free unless you want to change what realms you want to play on after you already chose the first time.

    Doesn't that kinda just turn a blind eye to the massive profits created by microtransactions such as the boost. You acknowledged in your video that "the boost is too good." Everybody is going to buy it. Your concern in this video is the pressure this creates on people who don't buy the boost to hit max. I agree with the statement that the boost is too good. I'm one of the people with no plans to buy the boost. However, I'm not going to be a fan of all my friends being ahead of me. The one thing I don't agree with is the idea not identifying all the possible explanations the creating of this pressure. The boost to me seems to be the number #1 culprit.
