World of Warcraft Classic is about to enter The Burning Crusade, and that means splitting the backlog MMO servers between the new expansion and a pure, vanilla experience. But if you wanted to clone a character between the two of you, Blizzard was hoping to charge you a pretty hefty $ 35 fee.
Of course the WoW community refused with the idea of effectively paying the cost of a new game to have an existing character copied.
Reply to comments about WoW forums yesterday, the community manager, Kaivax, explained that Blizzard was making a "course correction" of these rates, which have been reduced to $ 15.
"This service – providing a player with a second copy of a character in a different game – is new to us," Kaivax wrote. "Our original concept of the value of this service was largely based on how we price other optional items and services. We want players to choose the realms of this era. Classic feel like their choice comes with the possibility that they can establish relationships and guilds with other players they can count on. "
"However, over the last week or so, we've received a lot of feedback from the community and decided to lower the price. A lower price will likely meet our goals with the new service, while allowing many more players to explore the option of playing characters in both the realms of the classic era and the classic realms of Burning Crusade. "
WoW Classic: The Burning Crusade arrives on June 1st, and players will be able to choose which of their characters will go through the Dark Portal from next week's patch. Fortunately, it should be a little less expensive now if you don't want to compromise a character in one way or another.
