Morynne over at Marks 365 posted this question today, but I felt I’d get too lengthy for a comment. So, here goes. I haven’t played WoW since at least June. Before that I only played for a few weeks after another months long hiatus. So why would someone who wanders away for months at a time turn around and take the annual pass? Well it’s pretty simple. I always come back. Because I always come back, I never cancel my subscription. So even if life and school kidnap me again, I’m not losing anything by paying my sub month to month.
But Jess, have you ever tried Diablo? No. I bought my husband the battle chest, but he didn’t care for it. We’ve both been a bit spoiled by more modern visual styles. I tried to install it once and my computer staunchly refused it. I didn’t care. And honestly, I never even considered playing Diablo III. BUT! if committing to a year of WoW, which I’d be paying for anyway, as mentioned above, gets me the game for free…I might just try it, and maybe even like it. If I don’t? hey no loss right?
Worst case, I have a game I’m absent from, and still paying for which is pretty par for the course for me to begin with, a free game I may or may not like, a mount for all my characters past, present, and future that looks absolutely awesome from what I’ve seen. Black armored pegasus? yes please! And I get a sneak peak into Mists of Pandaria on top of all of that.
All for doing what I already do, paying $15/month for World of Warcraft.
What’s NOT to like about that?
