And then you realise that you're essentially spending 9 euro's for a megabyte of space. The savegame can't be more than a megabyte: as everything is instanced you don't have any item locations / state to save, thus the savegame can be tiny...probably just a couple of hundred kb even.
Now let's buy a HD....what's that nowaddays? 100 euro's for 500 gig? 5 gig/euro...9 euros should net you 45 gigs! But no...you're paying the equivalent of 9000 euros per gig!
Sure, there's admin costs...but those should be minimal in an automated system.
Again...the whining isn't about costs per se...it's about what you get for what you spend. Psychology, y'know? The price is just too high.
PS: I loved GW...lvl 20 mesmer and a lvl 20 ranger...but now it's oblivion time
