Why do we need to be nickeled and dimed?

I have no problem with the 15 a month subscription. It's fine.

However, I fail to see why a character rename is ten dollars, why a realm transfer is 25 dollars, why a faction change is 30 dollars, and why a character re-customization is 15 dollars. It makes little sense to me why we would have to pay those kind of fees in order to play the game how we want on top of a 15 dollar subscription. If the prices were divided in half, Blizzard would still make money.

Why can't the players ever feel like they're getting a deal?

Why are you renaming, transferring a char, or faction changing a character so often?

I'm not. That's the point.


Luxury services are generally not free.


You have free options to do any of the things they provide.

The only thing that really bothers me is if I want to play the opposite faction on a different server, I have to pay $25 to transfer, then another $30 to change factions.

The excuse that these things are charged for 'to discourage overuse' has long since lost any credibility it ever had. Plenty of people can afford to change names and servers on a regular basis, and many do, clearly the 'price' is not stopping them at all.

IT does kind of suck if you rolled on a bad server (i.e alliance side on cho'gall or mal'ganis) without realizing the imbalances and than you have to pay 25 or 30 dollars just to avoid rerolling.

Or...you could just reroll! That's free.

The prices are low enough that the services are within reach if you need them, but high enough to prevent you from using them on a regular basis. Which is the point.

What kind of 0-Velociraptor time does the Trollercoaster Rex have?

I believe its more so that people don't abuse these services (ie ninja loot and name change or faction jump on a whim).

Why are you nickel and diming them?
