even in beta blizzard adds more content, so you can be in alpha but really your not even treading on anything, because you never know whats gonna be added next. Look at live servers blizzard adds more stuff.

So don't jump to conclusions and think it's gonna be a small expac, because i can guarantee it's not small at all.

I think people should en masse seriously think about cancelling their subs to Blizz and going to another game. Blizz might be one of the biggest but it’s not the only one out there. It’s really a sad day when I have to say that. SWTOR is coming out, so more likely than not, I’ll suspend my subscription. I know of a lot of ppl who went to Rift. Maybe more ppl need to leave Blizz? What are they going to charge us for next – using the zeppelins or boats in game? How about helping people out on dead realms? Oh wait, I forgot YOU DON’T CARE unless it has a $ attached to it otherwise you’d be doing more…

Meh… get your act together people before you lose your hard core players – me included.


You don't speak for the rest of the players, please leave the game. You won't be missed.

Taking a look at your 4 posts within a span of 2 hours without a response, you should probably also complain about:
$15/month subscription fee
$25 for realm transfers
$25 for race changes
$30 for faction changes
$$$ from blizzard store

More $$$ for expansions to come, other blizzard games.

Seems like Blizz is letting a lot of us down lately... I guess they “forgot” to let us know that… yeah right…

Where are you getting this info? Seems like you're making it up, guild transfers were announced months ago, and if you didn't assume it'd cost money, then I don't know what to tell you, seeing how realm transfers/faction changes cost money, it goes hand and hand with guild transfers.

You should've quit when rift, warhammer, and all the other games that tried to compete with wow, when they came out. Why are you still here??

I think what a lot of people are missing is BEFORE this service as a guild we either decided to take A HUGE cost and then start from scratch or stayed where you were....

Since for most people the price was moronic and the work not worth it ... Guilds stayed where they were.

With this service the average person was expecting to be able to take all their hard work with them to another realm.

The problem is that the price is still idiotic.

Again as GM of a guild I now have the decision to stay on what is a dying guild or make a swap AND leave anyone behind that cannot afford to come.

Allowing a bulk fee or a discounted per person fee allows for a lot more people to utilize this service and help their guilds.


If you are wondering what I am talking about see my previous post on this page

The benefit of this service is immediately overshadowed by the out-of-market pricing to move with your guild.

It's funny, when I heard about the guild services coming out I assumed that it would be some sort of discount for a guild to move to another server. Normally, when people do things in bulk they get a discount. I was absolutely shocked to see the price on this service.

Blizzard should be ashamed for milking people as much as they do on their services. I refuse to use them even though I'm a fairly serious player. I get that it's a corporation, but this is just absurd. I doubt it's even a good deal for Blizzard since more people would use a service if it cost less. Pathetic.

You are all missing the point behind this, its just like anything in life, it is a PAID SERVICE. You pay to play this game at all. get over it, and put it this way. any money put into the game in the long run hopefully makes the game better.

for a guild like mine where my guild name, and achievements actually matter

<Intent> Us. Kel'thuzad #1 in the world for Guild achievement points with all tabs. and gold cap'd (x3)

<a href="http://us.battle.net/wow/en/guild/kelthuzad/Intent/achievement">http://us.battle.net/wow/en/guild/kelthuzad/Intent/achievement</a>

We were planning on transferring in the next three weeks off of KT horde side because its dead. this service not only saves us some money, in the terms of we would have to Buy another guild wherever we ended up. but also allows us to retain our Name. Level, achievements and prestige some day maybe the mass majority of people playing this game will realize Blizzard is a Business, their end goal is to sell a Product. they aren't the freaking red-cross or welfare.

I DO however agree that the price is a little high, for a guild orientated sort of transfer system and there should be a *follow your guild* discount for up to 30 days for people transferring mains and alts. ill give you the math on my guild.

( we already did it)

Intent has Three raid cores. two 25 man 1 10 man. that's 60 raiders. not to mention each raid has tons of backups which brings it to roughly 100 raiders. now tack on at least 35% of those raiders will be transferring anywhere between 1 and 5 "alts" also add on the fact our guild has 600 toons in it. with roughly 200+ accounts. of which 75% will be following us where ever we go. all in all when the dust has settled Blizzard has to gain roughly 10.000 USD from my guild





Why not actually become a REAL elite guild...oo your 1 on this server. 54th on 25man 98th on 25&10 & 161 on achievements in the US...good luck aparently your not even in the conversation of elite guilds so enjoy transferring somewhere and becoming just another scrub guild

Hey look someone in a 6/7 normal 10-man guild is jealous, what a surprise.


I'm in a 3/7 H 10man guild and I'm jealous.

Is there any chance you have considered an option for a type of guild to be made that this is not an option for? IE on the whim of the GM you dont have to change faction or realm if you would rather not and still be able to keep your guild perks and guild achievements that you helped work for? Sort of as a security option for a guild member looking to join a new guild, or one in the progress of starting up? Kind of like when you go in for Mutual funds you can pick your risk level?

You don't like it? Don't get it. You don't really NEED the service. It's a convenience. You can just as easily reroll another toon in another realm and make a new guild and level it at no cost. It's not like you're left without a choice that doesn't involve you paying them any extra than you already do for your monthly sub. What's pathetic is that you expect a corporation to not to try to make money for providing such a convenience.
