World of Warcraft: "Level Boost"
Posted: Wednesday February 26th, 2014 by

Let me start by saying, so there's no confusion, I have NO problem with the level 90 boost. From my perspective, I know how much I hate having to dredge through the same content over and over and over again just to get at whatever achievement it is I'm shooting for. Keep in mind, I'm not an altaholic. I've only ever created alts out of what I deemed necessity. So, for me, there is a value to in having to invest the time for a character that's never going to be considered in the same breath with my main. Not even close. That being said, I'd never drop $60 on a service like this. Though buying out of the leveling process for an alt makes plenty of sense to me, it's not worth -that- much to me.

Now on to the "grit"...
I get what Hazzikostas is intimating. [more info] It some kind of attempt at solidarity, I guess. "Hey guys we didn't want to make you buy additional copies of the expansion just to get the level boost". But the simple matter is that at $60 they're asking us to pay more than the cost of Warlords of Draenor expansion to get the boosts. That's not solidarity. That's a misstep in communication that makes the whole thing come across as backhanded.

I'm going to offer a bit of an apology here to Ion for calling him dumb in the comic. I don't think he's actually dumb; I do however stick by the assertion that the comment he made was.
