WoW Currency Conversions

Blizzard announces currency conversions will be part of the upcoming version 5.2 update for World of Warcraft, their MMORPG. They explain the process, and offer the following overview: "Patch 5.2 introduces a new raid tier and PvP season, and so the higher tier currencies will be down-converted during maintenance. This time around there won’t be a soft cap, old Valor items aren’t changing to cost Justice, and we’re adding a new rank of PvP gear."

I think the real question deqer is why would you continue pay to play for those reasons.

I personally stopped playing WoW when GW2 came out and hit me in the face with the realization that I was paying for the privilege to sit around in town while waiting for my raid/random to start so I could go after that 1% drop or gather my points to spend in rainbow sunshine gear. What a TREMENDOUS waste of money.

Say what ya will about GW2 but I've gotten far more fun, and far more regular (and content packed) updates to the game in the ~6 months it's been out than in the ~6 years I put into WoW.. sans the $4000 or so I put into that game.

I feel the same - have had more fun in GW2 than I did in 8 years of FFXI, barring a 2 year period when I was a core member of a really amazing guild of great folks. But that was all about people - the FFXI game mechanics got in the way but we still had a wonderful time. In GW2 the mechanics are designed to enable, not hinder the fun. The potential for good times is much, much greater.

The old ways of MMOs are done. I think everything new in the genre that arrives will have been colored by the changes GW2 has brought to the table. And that's a really good thing.
