I said it's bad ( paying as much for WoW and services ), but not as bad as some people make it out to be.

I think it is as bad as it gets. They are charging monthly fee where only realistic service you get is GM assistance and this monthly fee doesn't cover a service that requires basic database manipulation.
About getting mileage from your money through hours played, I don't know if you saw but I just gave an example of a purchase a friend of mine made. It's a big title that will be played for 50+ hours. We are at the era of great Steam sales and great F2P titles. The monthly fee + service charges are unreal at this point.

But then again, this is a game that caters to addicts, so no matter what they do, people will keep paying, which is a shame really because the game is so bad and there are so many f2p and cheap games available.

The stupidity in some comments in this thread is really disturbing.
-Yes $15 is a lot of money in some shitty economy countries. This is gonna come as a shocker but in those countries minimum salary(after exchange rates applied) is ~ $500, while a bread loaf could be $0.5 . So that guy isn't in a situation where he is borderline starving. But paying 1/30 of their salary, monthly to a game is too much for them. This would translate to a $70/month payment for a guy in NA.
If you check games on Steam, they are cheaper for people in shitty economy countries.

-As pointed out, not only they are charging a considerable monthly fee, they are asking money for basic services. Please take your time to go to Steam sales, or any online discounted game seller and check how many amazing games you can buy monthly for that price. Just to give you an example, without knowing much about the game; my friend bought Batman Arkham Origins for $5, it's a huge ass title, that is expected to be finished in ~50 hours.

And we have a self destructive baller:
"I go out and drink but I can't get drunk for some reason, being the hard man that I am"
"I buy this much grams of weed every 2-3 days"
then proceeds with:
"I prefer transferring 2 characters for pve to a night out, because it provides more hours of fun"
I mean did you really compare going out with friends for a night to killing mobs in a scripted fight and conclude that latter is better?

Can you make longer and more detailed posts? Also your UI seems too simplistic, maybe install the remaining addons on wowinterface?

That is if you get some free time from moonfacering.

I wasn't saying anything bad. It's just that HotS is a lot easier to jump into because matches aren't an hour long and you don't have to do research to see which items you should buy and so on. I love HotS, so if someone here plays on EU feel free to add me. :)

You are right, anyone without moba experience can start playing hots , it is really casual friendly . The thing is regular AJ viewer is not a casual player and this game suffers from downsides of casual games.
If someone wants to play a competitive moba, there is no reason to play hots as other alternatives passed the test of time. Valve being the better esports company, hots being developed by Blizzard and all that crap.
