World of Warcraft Race Changes Underway

The World of Warcraft Website announces the new World of Warcraft Race Change service is now live, allowing players to purchase the ability to "choose any race of their same faction that is compatible with the character's current class" for $25.00 USD. The Race Change FAQ should answer your burning questions on the topic, and the Race Change page is where to get changed. Thanks Kxmode.

I don't consider the time I spent in WoW "wasted." It is simply how I have filled my spare time. Before there was WoW, I filled my spare time with other generally pointless activities. If/when I stop playing WoW, I'll find something else to fill my spare time. The only way WoW is wasting your time, is if you weren't playing WoW you would be volunteering at your local outreach program, doing legitimate work to cure a disease, or whatever. Entertainment is just that, entertainment. Nothing less, nothing more.

it's interesting to note that the spellchecker for Blue's thinks "cancelled" is spelled wrong. In fact it is QUITE sure it's spelled "canceled"

Both spellings are correct.

What they should do, or what would be nice for the customers, is to allow the customers to select which features they want changed and charge them based on what they selected.

Want to keep your original name but roll from a Tauren to Troll? Simply charge the user $15 as opposed to $25 since the name change feature costs $10.

It would be nice but Blizzard is in it for the money; money they know they'll get regardless.

When you finally shake the WoW addiction, you look around and see all of the time you have wasted.

I have yet to waste time/money on WoW...

I have 10 80s : )

One 5.1k GS, a few others 4.6k... Good times ; )

Spanky, your spellchecker is right. Trust it more.

Side note: It's not a blues specific feature, so likely your browser. Are you on a mac? There's a global spellcheck built into the OS.

I cancelled my account finally, and yeah, WHOOOO I have a lot of spare time now.

also, it's interesting to note that the spellchecker for Blue's thinks "cancelled" is spelled wrong. In fact it is QUITE sure it's spelled "canceled". So is the spellchecker built into the site, or is it built into my browser? I honestly don't know. Running Firefox, whatever the latest version is.

Yea...WoW is the greatest game in the world. You spend one hour waiting for your raid party to get there ass in gear, spend three hours wiping 20 times on the last boss, finally beat him, get the epic drop you have been waiting for, only to roll 01 to see if you get it. All of this great fun for only $180 a year for one account.
When you finally shake the WoW addiction, you look around and see all of the time you have wasted. Never again.

Seems like the last year or more the game has been in different hands. Lots of things that were sacrilege before are now commonplace.
Change of designers. Tigole (Jeff Kaplan) was the original lead designer, he's now working on Blizzard's secret unnamed MMO, and WoW was given to Ghostcrawler (Greg Street), who I might add is a massive fucktard. The man has a degree in marine biology from a liberal arts college.

If it was a garbage ass game, as you so eloquently put it, there wouldn't be over 12 million playing it.

Because for the past year or a little longer it has been ACTIVISION Blizzard, and not Blizzard. All they care about is money and keeping people addicted to that garbage ass game. Thats why they keep making it easier and easier for noobsauce players to get end game gear.

But then they turn around and fuck their PC customers in the ass with the shit they're doing to COD MW2.

Short explaination
Activision is the new EA of old.

Well, they kind of have to.

I will ignore the whole hardcore/casual argument for a moment, but this makes sense given the ability to change other factors (faction, server, accounts, etc.)

Additionally, the next expansion, though shaking up the existing world, offers nothing new with regards to classes. The only outright different player/character feature is a new race. But if you like your class, you have to...kiss the new race goodbye? Create a second, redundant character of that same class?

Lastly, this lets Blizzard charge even more fees which it both loves doing and which people will pay...
Give us package discounts, you jerks!
Doubting I would pay for it,
