Recommended Posts

Blizzard are adjusting the prices for Australian WoW, for subscriptions and the token, and it seems prices are going up and New Zealand is not affected. The changes start on December 15th.

World of Warcraft is played in many regions around the world, and we regularly conduct reviews of the prices of our games and services in all currencies. From time to time, it’s necessary to make changes to certain pricing based on a variety of factors, including global and regional market conditions. Following a careful evaluation, we wanted to provide notice that we’ll soon be adjusting the Australian dollar (AUD) prices for World of Warcraft Subscriptions, Game Time, and WoW Tokens.

The new AUD pricing for World of Warcraft Subscriptions, Game Time, and WoW Tokens, reflected in the table below, will go into effect on 15 December 2020 AEDT. As a courtesy to our current players, all recurring subscriptions as of 11:59 p.m. 14 December 2020 AEDT will keep the previous price until 11:59 p.m. 14 June 2021 AEST.

New Zealand Dollar (NZD) pricing will be unaffected by this price change, and players in New Zealand will continue to purchase digital game software, virtual items, subscriptions, and optional game services at the current NZD pricing.

We know that people have a lot of options for entertainment, and we never take pricing adjustments such as this lightly. We appreciate that players choose to spend their time with World of Warcraft, and we are committed to ensuring the game continues to provide Australian players with great entertainment value.

If you would like to review your World of Warcraft subscription and payment method, you can do so through Blizzard Account Management at any time. If you wish to cancel your World of Warcraft subscription, instructions to do so can be found here.

New Price Starting 15 December AUD
6 Month Recurring Subscription / 180 Days Game Time $103.50 ($17.25 per month)
3 Month Recurring Subscription / 90 Days Game Time $55.80 ($18.60 per month)
1 Month Recurring Subscription / 30 Days Game Time $19.95
WoW Token $27
Blizzard Balance for WoW Token Redemption $20

I guess they're making more money than ever from MTX and they wanted to compensate by making sure they get more from subscriptions as well.

 

Their reasoning - with regards to inflation and/or strong vs weak currency - somehow (almost?) never is used to drop the subscription prices. They're always silent when it's not in their favor.

It just means the worth of the currencies around the world is decreasing....hence why globalists are talking about 'The Great Reset'...

20 australian dollars are worth 13 euros, which is the sub price in europe, so they're just making it even.

Other than a dip in March, likely when the heavy lockdowns were put in, the AUD has been pretty good and only getting stronger against the dollar. 

That said I agree on the 2nd part, they'd never have made it cheaper had it continued to fall.

The point is that if a currency becomes stronger, they don't drop the prices.

The point is that with their message, they're clearly stating that they're doing it to bring the sub prices in line with other currencies. Yet they never(?) have ever reduced sub prices when a currency has become stronger.

      Another world first goes to the same group that cleared Mythic +25 earlier. This time, they have cleared a +26 with almost 40 seconds left on the timer. This is the first +26 cleared in time in Season 1. Congratulations!
      You can find a more details about the run including team composition, Covenants, Soulbind traits, Conduits, Legendaries, and trinkets below.

      You can find a VoD of their run on Douyu.

      Two top Arena World Championship players, including a BlizzCon champion and a 2nd place finisher, received suspensions yesterday, one permanent, as both were found to be using Real Money Trading.
      First off we have Emil "Zeepeye" Ek, who won last year's EU side of the AWC and had previously finished in 2nd place during the 2019 AWC BlizzCon finals, and is now suspended for 6 months. The RMT was related to "coaching", which could be interpreted as boosting by some, and Ek had a lengthy explanation of what happened and why:
      Secondly, a previous 1-year suspension was made permanent, as Martin "Loony" Moazzez (who shared the EU AWC 2020 win with Zeepeye and had previously won BlizzCon 2014) also participated in Real Money Trading and coaching. There's a lot more to his story, as the initial 1-year suspension actually wasn't for RMT but more complicated and, well, worse:
      The Arena World Championship continues in March.

      What would be the worst thing that could happen in the Shadowlands? The Jailer winning and remaking the way death works? Destroying the universe to build a new one? Sylvanas getting redeemed and us having to suffer through her being on our side again? Well, it turns out 9.1 might be bringing something MUCH darker on us than all of that combined.
      Sarazzan made this horrifying discovery when looking at the ending of the 9.1 cinematic, as a certain glowy light at the end of the chains over in Korthia is hinting at... terror:

      So get ready for a return to the CHAMPIONizing and WOONZing ways of BfA, as everyone's least favorite Christmas tree ornament might be coming back. When you think about it it makes sense too, as the instant he wasn't needed to save Azeroth anymore some very smart people decided to banish him into the deepest depths of the Shadowlands, but alas the Jailer just hates us SO much that he's bringing him back.
      Here are some of the measured and very accurate comments from the post:
      And just in case you forgot why players are scared to death of him, here are a couple of reminders:

      We have two pretty great videos of Priests taking matters into their own hands, as Leap of Faith "helps" the DPS do the mechanics properly... and sometimes not so much.
      The first clip is a truly amazing example of "healers have to do everything"/babysitting the DPS, as this Priest took control and completed the Lady Inerva mechanic using a puppet:
      However, there's always a flip side to things, as this Priest had the same idea, with a somewhat different outcome on Stole Legion:
