World of Warcraft players soar price with ‘absurdly expensive’ service

Posted time: Mar 29,2017

Due to the  “regional market conditions”, World of Warcraft players in the UK are facing huge price hikes for a variety of account services.

In a press release, Blizzard Entertainment revealed that with the wide range of paid account services in World of Warcraft gameplay,  it would soon jack up pricing across the UK and Europe.

However, please kindly note that the monthly subscription fee (£ 9.99 in the UK) does not rise, we only see the price of optional services. The cost of the basic game seems to be remaining static.

However, it is bad news for those who want to get name changes, transfer their character to another realm, or purchase a cosmetic account. Beginning from April 5, 2017, players can expect prices to rise from anywhere between 15% and 25%.

Blizzard confirmed the price hike by stating that “We carefully review the prices of our games and services in all currencies on a regular basis, and we occasionally need to make changes based on regional market conditions. Considering this, we’d like to let you know that we’ll soon be adjusting the European prices of some of the optional services available for World of Warcraft."

Of course, as you can imagine, many gamers are not happy with the change, with some stating the price is already expensive enough despite the pending price jump. There are some posts from the Reddit thread on the subject:

“Reads the title. Cool, finally those ridiculously expensive micro-transactions won’t cost as much! It was kind of ridiculous in a game with a normal price and a subscription fee to…to…what?!” – lethiela

“So they’re making these services that are absurdly expensive…more expensive? What?” – Zephorian

“It now officially costs as much as a just-released AAA game for a full transfer (server plus faction) for ONE character, on a very old game with a paid release, half a dozen paid expansions and a monthly sub.” – Microchaton
