WoW monthly rate

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have heard that when the new expasion comes out and you buy it there will be a new monthly charge of $20 a month. I dont know if this is entirely true but if they dont raise it to $20 they will definetly raise it, everytime an expansion comes out for a MMORPG they always rasie the prices. I thought $15 was insane but going any higher is unbelievable; and the sad part is is that people will pay this outrages fee.

All video games are a waste of time on that perspective. What do you gain from playing CSS or any game? Self gratification (sp?) Anyways, WoW isn't that advanced as compared to eq2, after you figure out what your doing in a mmo, try the eq2 trial and see the difference.

I seriously seriously doubt they will raise the price. They would lose way to many people even if they charged a dollar more. And yes WoW is different from other mmo's. If you ask me till I hit 60 it was the best mmo. Then afterward it went downhill from there. Crossing fingers that it gets better with BC. Smaller raids means more raid times and more actually teamwork.

They are not raising the subscription fee. Who told you they were raising it lol? They are going to make anywhere from $20 - $40 per expansion box sold already they would hurt themselves if they raised the sub fee. Also if it came from an official source wouldn't everyone be running out and getting game cards plus 1yr subs?

That's just not true at all. For the most part, MMO publishers hold their monthly prices steady for years, raising them only when it is clear that they can do so without fear of losing customers (because new games, like WoW, came along at reset our price point expectations higher than what they are currently charging).

The point of an expansion pack is to a) get you to purchase another fixed-price product, giving an instant boost to revenue; and b) probably more importantly, keep you interested in the game so you keep sending your subscription fee month after month after month. Not to stealth increase your monthly fee, that would actively drive customers away.

They wont' raise their prices. Look at EQ1. It's only raise its prices twice since it came out I think, and it's been out for a WHILE
