Money for Nothing

As a Blogger, you aren't tied by the same rules that often restrict other news sites. You don't have a party line to tow or a popular opinion to back. When something happens out of left field, as has been the case in the last few hours, there is a temptation to react but at the same time the understanding that the nature of the news is constant and ever changing as you do. It's hard to find the right words... that is, until someone else comes along and does the job so perfectly and brilliantly there's actually no need for you to say anything else.

Fortunately for me, that happened about 15 minutes ago.

That's really all I have to say now too, and I suspect my feelings won't change however expensive Blizzard price the Boosts in the EU.

Thanks Matthew. I owe you one.

Maybe that's true for many - but I am looking forward to it for my own reasons of time, schedules, real life, and balance of fun. If I could buy a new car versus my old jalopy that doesn't mean I won't like driving the new car? Not my best analogy, but Azeroth is an expansive, inclusive world...

Matthew Rossi said it perfectly, if you do not enjoy leveling a character you will not enjoy playing it.

With that said, dispute what we will hear in the coming days, 60 dollars is an extremely reasonable price.

Not sure it's as simple as everyone who would pay to boost hates leveling. I enjoy leveling most areas...but I also love endgame and being able to play with friends. I'd love to play my warlock with friends at max...but that's a few months out because I am NOT fast leveler (and extremely distracted with alts). So paying to boost an alt to play more with friends and their alts? That's a fair price.

It's far too simplistic an argument. Some people only care about end game, about having their character at maximum power; who are we to say they don't enjoy what they do?

As for cost, it's the old cost/benefit ratio argument; is the time spent levelling worth $60 to skip? Assuming £50 in real money, for me probably not, but for some, almost certainly so.

I doubt I'll ever use this(I can't see being not-poor any time soon), but if I did it wouldn't be on a class that I didn't know how to play. I would only use this for a fresh start on a new server - say to play with a new guild or group of friends.
