- The Javelin destroyer sale at $2500 per ship. There were four lots of 50 ships each to give people in different timezones a chance to get one. Each lot sold out in seconds, of course, so that was $2500 x 200 = $500K alone.
Okay, I played WoW for 6.5 years and that cost me over $1,000 in subscription fees, plus the collector's versions I bought, plus I spent more doing races changes and some server moves. Yet, even I think $2,500 for a virtual ship is crazy.

Yo Creston, remember when you wanted to pickup TNG on blu for cheap? Amazon just dropped them to $31.99 a set, with season 1 being $20.
Season 1 deserves to be at a discount it sucked so badly. Two is only slightly better, season 3 is where the series finally got it's legs. I own TOS and DS9 on DVD, but am only marginally attracted to this. If they re-master DS9 -- I'll buy that.

And why is this never discussed: What company WANTS to piss off their customers?
You'd think none, but if you worked with telcos on a regular basis you know it wasn't the case. Comcast is pretty good at it too, but they are a special case -- legal monopoly.

Answered my own question, logged into battlenet and my account is already upgraded to include MoP. I might have to try this...

People are perfectly okay with Steam DRM but come out screaming with pitchforks when anyone else implements it.
False logic. I have Steam games but I play off-line. I'll go months without connecting to Steam. Steam and required connection while playing are not synonymous.

To those of you who play each expansion until you get tired of it and then quit again -- Do you relearn add-ons? Or do you just go with the base install?

Guess I must be pretty dumb, never played any of the Battlefield games.

It's not a trilogy, it's one game broken down and drawn out over 4+ years and sold to you in pieces to annoy people and generate more money.
With the content of three games...

First heard Car Talk around 1993 -- I didn't listen religiously but I certainly caught the show once or twice most month over all those years. RIP.

News Comments > WoW 10th Anniversary Celebration This Week
13. Re: WoW 10th Anniversary Celebration This Week Nov 3, 2014, 09:47 Mr. Tact
 
I played 6.5 of the first 7 years and loved the hell out of it.

In Vanilla I was out of control. When I started raiding I was probably playing 35-40 hours a week, this was while I was working full time. Was in on the first Alliance kill on the server of Nefarian in Blackwing Lair. Burned out, of course. Played BC but didn't raid. Then with FT I started raiding again, but not quite so hardcore. Continued raiding into Cata, but stopped playing before MoP.

I'd love another game to grab me as much as WoW did. If Star Citizen could be that good, I would be very happy.

When you consider the tallest building in the world isn't even 1 km, talking about a 10 km ramp seems a bit out of reach. I'm not informed enough to make significant comment on the feasibility, but I agree it won't happen in our lifetimes.

Now it could become the most successful PC game in history.

This made me chuckle.
How would you quantify such a thing? Dollars earned? Certainly a reasonable measure, but not necessarily what I would use - despite 6+ years of playing WoW.
