Ps+ and xbox live say hi

yeah no, you don't need to pay to play the game with ps+ and live

 

WoW, you need to buy the game then are required to pay a monthly sub, that isn't the same case with + and live

not on ps3?

 

And even on ps4, that is one sub for every game, rather than one sub for just one game.

Whether or not you think the idea is outdated, it all comes down to cost to value ratio.  If you think that the game has enough content and entertainment to be worth the cost, then of course it is worth it, but nobody other than you can answer that.

Honestly it depends on what you're looking for. In the case of WoW you get a steady stream of quality content but you have to pay a monthly fee. They use the sub money to keep making more content. For WoW, the last expansion came out in August with a whole new continent, a bunch of dungeons, a raid, and some other cool features like island expeditions and warfronts. Even though it's only been 4 months the next update is coming out which adds a bunch more content as well as a new raid coming out next month. They even have the update after this one already planned and probably is coming in another 5 to 6 months. 

 

Now you could play a F2P MMO instead but they usually have less frequent content updates and are filled with micro-transactions. WoW has some mounts and pets you can buy but they are purely cosmetic. F2P games also make you grind a ton. WoW still has a grind but it's really quite tame compared to other MMO's.

World of Warcraft is not bad per say but since Activision started making it into a more "Profit possible environment" it's sunk into a bit of tar pit. getting these super rare drops then augment them into higher level..yeah it's just microtransactions.

 

The pro's about WoW these days is that you don't have to spend real money on the game as long as you buy in game tokens, think they go for a lot of gold but if you do dailies, raids and dungeons you can keep buying them.

PvP is shit unless you go super serious into ranked and Raids is meh during battle of azeroth.

I'm guessing you're just joking but WoW hit it's peak in 2010. Since then it's been up and down with the last expansion being a lot of people's favorite.

I would wait until wow classic, comes out this summer. Every expansion just gets worse and worse, but that's my opinion.

It's no more "outdated" than buying a game. Now to mobile gamers that are used to f2p games the notion of paying for a game or paying for access to servers could seem silly. For people that have been gaming for a few years paying for access to a server is just one way to monetize a game. There's no real "age" to bog standard payment and transactions.

 

The real question is whether you think that game justifies the cost. The trial demo period should  allow you to form your own opinion instead of people telling you their opinion of a game. Opinions are personal, not fact.

Not anymore, just subbing to the game now gives you full access to the game and all expansions

correct but you still have to pay for the game.....

You only have to pay a monthly sub now, which is how it's always been, the only difference is you don't have to pay for the game and the expansions
