Even if the transaction is automated it still costs them electricity.Cutter wrote on May 26, 2015, 17:52:CC gets stolen. Keys are purchased with stolen CC. CC gets reversed. Keys get banned. Simple really. If the key was traded to a third party then it sucks to be a third party.
If they activated they're legitimate keys, it doesn't matter how they were purchased. That's a problem with the merchant software and for the CC companies. This sounds more like regional pricing protection bullshit than actual stolen keys. Fine, if that's the kind of party they want to have I'm going to stick my dick in the mashed potatoes.
Nowhere does it mention parallel or grey keys from discounted regions.

Does anyone know how big the download is for this game?

BC wasn't worth coming back to for a few people I've asked. Though that's hardly close to a Representative Sample.ForgedReality wrote on May 6, 2015, 21:57:
Wow. There's that many hopeless, fat neckbeards in the world?
Considering the number of women that I know that still play it, pretty sure it's not all hopeless, fat neckbeards. For some reasons it's very popular with the women where I work, where as the guys don't find it enjoyable anymore. The last time I enjoyed playing the game was back when Wrath was released. I've tried going back a dozen times to play and nope...no fun now. I enjoyed the hard grind, complex skill trees and all the rest.

Are you experiencing the mouse/input lag issue?

I just tried to reactivate and the price was 20883. I thought I had enough gold in my account for 30k but must have spent it on garrison crap before I went on my WoW hiatus last month. Oh well, got to make time for GTAV next week anyway.
When it first got implemented yesterday, it would grey out and say you didn't have enough gold if there were none available at either the price it was listed at in the window or in general.
Might have to try it a couple more times, perhaps?

I gotta ask: How has this effected the gold selling sites? What did $20 on a gold selling site get you prior to this?
Too soon to tell. Right now 30k gold will run you around $25-30 on a gold seller site. You're looking at around a dollar per 1000 gold. So the starting price here is actually a bit cheaper than buying from China. Since Blizzard is in charge of setting the price it's really hard to tell what will happen.
In a pure supply & demand situation like I've seen in Wildstar or EVE, generally the "legit" currency ends up costing more than the black market currency because people end up being willing to pay a premium for the legitimacy.
The illegal sellers are in a tough spot because if they don't undercut Blizzard by a significant margin, their sales will dry up. No one is going to buy illegal gold for more than legit gold.

Huh, as a fan of both sci fi games and the Stronghold series (well 1 & 2, anyways), I'm surprised I've never heard of this. Looks pretty fun. Anyone play it?
I did. It was a pretty fun game. Not only did you have to consider what you were building but you had to try to appease your workers and I remembered it was pretty difficult to do so. I never beat it but it surely broke the mold of what Firefly did with the Stronghold series.

Incidentally, I bet the beta will last three times longer in order to maximize those sales to a game that will be F2P.
