It has finally happened. Blizzard will let you pay for subscription time with in-game gold. I did a quick read and it seems to work like so:
- Player A buys WoW Tokens with real money ($$$).
- Player A puts WoW Token in Auction.
- Player B buys WoW Token for X amount of gold (price dynamically determined based on supply/demand)
4. Player A effectively bought Gold with real money, Player B effectively saved $15 real dollars by using gold to buy play time.
Needless to say, I’m on the fence (again!) about reactivating my account. Blizzard you’re evil.
