  1. you are wrong. the chinese players pay per hour of played time, because most of them don’t own a pc and instead play from netcafes. if they play the same hours as we do they pay about 10% of that $14.99.

  2. I dont care what anybody says. I’ve been a fan of warcraft since the very first warcraft came out all that time ago. WoW is just another game to me. I take it in moderation. You only get “addicted” when you play it 24/7. The most i ever played in a day is 8 hours and that was for a raid I did with my guild. Thats my take on it.

  3. I think the price $14.99 should be subtracted. Like it should be 5.00$$ a month… It’s costing me a fortune! I mean GD, guys… I’m a level 44 Druid in the Realm The Scryers. -Elrondric the Noble.

  4. @ Elrondric:

    The game(s) isn’t addictive. People who play it in excess are morons and the producers & game have nothing to do with it.
    Also, the game has an option called “parental control” where parents can manage when and how much their kids play.
    End of the so-called “addiction” topic.

  5. Logistik… World of Warcraft is one of the best games out there. Thats really all there is to it. If it wasnt as good they wouldnt have sold as many coppies as they have. And there aslso wouldnt be a movie being made about it. And two most parents arent smart enough to know that you even CAN do a “parental control” and it is very addictive. i have a friend with almost 90 days of gameplay and he is not a morron he is getting strai A’s in High School

  6. World of Warcraft is one, if not the, best games on the market. Many have thought the new games coming out, Warhammer, Age of Conan, and even diablo 3, would be the World of Warcraft killer. Ive played the games for 3 years, and personally i dont think anything will touch it in this decade, and maybe not the next one. World of Warcraft is addicting, there are things you can do about it like parental control, but World of Warcraft is kinda like a drug, it makes us comfortable and happy just like a drug, so it can be addicting, so dont say it isnt just cus ur not addicted to it. World of Warcraft is the best mmorpg of the new Millenium, and you cant say u dont agree.

  7. world of warcraft gold really plays such an important role in World of Warcraft. I will need a lot of wow gold in the game.so every time i will come to ( wow-gold-team.com ), which is my favorite website.:)

  8. I like assassins, in the original World of Warcraft called thieves, stalkers were called after harmony.
    Output is a good job ah, close attack, can stealth, can faint.
    In a copy of the output could get the first good DZ. But also very easy to hang the job. . . Haha.
