A friend was just offered Brawlers Guild Pass

for 70k gold...

I thought this system wasn't going to breed elitism. All this does is help the rich get richer and create a worse community than we already have.

Just do what I'm doing and wait a couple of months.

Or go grind the rare mobs that drop the passes.

Either way, nobody is being forced to pay 70k. If that person think someone will pay that to sit and watch others fight for a couple of hours, good luck to them.

In the in-game economy, the rich get richer because stupid people buy stuff off them. If everyone were to stop buying things for inflated prices the problem would be solved.

Prices on them will drop and free alternatives do exist although they might not be the most efficient.

What is wrong with charging prices that people might actually pay for?

Once people realize it's just a novelty, the price will plummet. I really wouldn't worry about it.

Relax, it just came out.
The only direction it has now is down, its impossible to control it because the amount of players with it is constantly growing.
If people are paying 70k+ for the passes, then its only right for the seller to sell for that much.

As we've stated in the past, we want the Brawler's Guild to have that tight knit, underground kind of feel to it. So for now, it's going to be a lot tougher to get in. I'm sure you have other friends who would be willing to give you an invite for free or very cheap if they had one. As membership grows in the guild, so will the chance of one of them getting invited and having one to share with you.

Keep in mind, invites also occasionally drop from certain Horde and Alliance NPCs. Good luck!

Do it on another server. I paid 5k for my invite off the BMAH and they frequently go below 3k now.

Its for an elite few (with 70k gold+) sounds like someone is giving gold dealers a lot of business , Houston we have a problem.

Prices on the BMAH are down from 100K+ on the day 5.1 dropped to 30Kish now on my server. They're dropping so fast that most of the people trying to sell invites are actually trying to sell them for more than the BMAH price.

I think most the people looking for a quick buck on Brawler's Guild invites are going to be disappointed unless they sell now at a steep discount to reduce the effects of deflation. Since each character only has to buy the invite once (and it's a long way from required for anything) eventually (I'm banking in around two months, less for lower pop servers) absolutely everyone who is interested in the Brawler's Guild will have purchased their invite and the invites will start rotting on the BMAH.

Patience is a virtue for the thrifty, in this case.

"tight knit" by that you mean, completely disjointed from the use of CRZ coalescing...

So, you're creating content that you don't want everyone to experience, but rather just a select "tight-knit" group? But wait, wasn't hardcore raiding, like Sunwell, butchered because you didn't want to create content that not everyone has access too? I'm failing to see the difference.

We got a guild on our server camping the named that drop the invites. They'll invite to group if you want the achievement but they'll put it on master looter so you have no chance in Hate of getting the invite. They're not selling them either.

If you get a tap before them, they try to wipe you.

It's ridiculous.

If you wanted a tight knit underground feeling, you wouldn't have CRZ'd it.
