Wow expensive? (3)

Hey guys!

I'm sure I am not the only one who thinks World of Warcraft charges like payed character transfer are way too over priced, examples of these costs are below:

In my opinion these charges are quite ridiculous, considering it will be a computer system that does the transactions anyway.

Think of how much profit blizzard are making per transaction.

Lets go through the cost of a typical year playing the game!

Ok so the games will cost = £32.92 (And thats the cheapest i could find)

Monthly subscription to the game costs £8.99 : £8.99x12= £107.88

God why did i chose to be human male i hate it, lets go human female and change to a more feminine name ! = £12.00

My friend plays Horde on another server so you have to pay for realm transfer £15 and faction change £20, my friend had to do this recently and he was not happy! = £35

God i need race change because the other race's racial is so much better in PvP! = £15

Overall Cost = £202.80

These costs do not even take into consideration people having multiple characters on realms, usually if someone transfers their main character off to a better server they will want to take their alts with them aswell.

Now remember around 11.5million people play World of warcraft, thats alot of money!
