WoW Token Actually Exists on EU/NA Burning Crusade Classic Store Page (but Hidden and Not Enabled)

Recommended Posts

The WoW Token has been spotted on the Battle.net shop, albeit pretty hidden and not functioning. As you can see, the token icon is actually styled to the Burning Crusade, but some argue this is most likely just due to the fact that the Chinese version of Classic already has a WoW Token, so the equivalent page was made by default (or by mistake) for NA and EU as well.

MrGM spotted the token purchasing page in the Battle.net shop, despite it not actually being offered/shown when you go to the BCC page, and even there you can't actually buy it, as it sends an error message if you try:


So this may be an error, just a default page to go with the Chinese version of the game, or preparation for when the token will be offered in BCC. Which do you think it is?

I wouldn't be against it being a possible thing to buy, cause Blizzard does need to make a profit....within reason.

nnah buddy there is a good reason why we have micro transactions in the game its not just cause the want to make more money, which isnt a bad thing either cause a company needs to make money but the fee isnt enough anymore im paying the same amount i was paying 15 years ago bud the game got better and better from a technical lvl i was always wondering why it never got raised

I can't believe I actually have to explain this to someone, but you do realize that hardware has gotten a lot better (or cheaper) over the last 2 decades, because, you know, that's what happens?

If you consider that wow, every 3-4 months cost close to a full new big game, like for example, final fantasy 7 remake or resident evil 2, but they dont offer the features a new game would offer. We're already by the 6 months mark with 0 new things, for almost $100, plus expansion you paid last year, for each active person, plus the fact, like i told before, for this price, you would really already got a new triple A game, or maybe even more, depending on prices and average promos.

Make a profit within reason? Was the *filtered* $70 deluxe edition and $40 character boosts not enough money? Jesus christ man

the wow servers dont run on the same type of hardware you play games on lol. i mean, a server to host as many players as a the wow playerbase on just 1 wow server and  say 50k people.... would require atleast(maybe more)  256gb ecc ram, 2x 10gb Ethernet cards, and maybe a top of the line cpu, an intel xeon gold or platnium cpu.....youre looking at spending about $10,000, for just 1 server...because one doesnt simply go to a computer store to build a server. most companies order those expensive overpriced ones from hp, dell, or cisco, to receive the technical top level support and warranties. the cheapest hp i could i find of the 10th gen proliant server, that even came close to those specs, was $6000 from a reseller company in the states.


while blizzard can more than afford it. its not about that. they do it for living. people have jobs there. they gotta pay them. nobody works for free. would you work for a company, provide free service to ungrateful customers? i sure wouldnt. i'd expect to get paid lots to have to deal with the constant problems blizzard faces on a daily bases.

I can't believe I have to explain inflation to someone, but you do realize that $15/mo in 2004 means that the subscription should cost $21/mo in 2021, just on inflation alone? Hardware improvements in the past 17 years can't account for increases in salary to developers and graphic artists, and for at least a good decade WoW's subscriber numbers were on the decline, with the exception of the first few months after each new expansion release.

Haha it's always the same with the addicted:

- They won't do that

- It's just a mistake they don't even have it enabled

- They announced it but they probably will change their mind

- I wanted that token anyway

Followed up by the people without any idea about money:

- The boost and monthly fee just isn't enough to fulfill the investors

- Don't you understand, more money = more content

Also the classic:

- WoW is no sinking ship, no they are not scamming us, see they made profit while losing a huge base

- A critical amount of key devs left Blizzard but as you can see they still hold strong!

- They kicked a lot of staff and used that money to boost the payout of the CEOs, they 100% still a community oriented company

To be fair a similar situation to this happened back in Vanilla Classic when the token appeared in the game files/AH and it turned out it didn't ever show up on Western servers, was just for Asia. Not saying that's the case now, but there's a reason to think it might not be coming now either at least.

      We're taking a look at some FAST punching low level characters, as these are some incredibly speedy fists, capable of taking down up to 26 levels higher players and, well, just looking crazy awesome!
      Exehn has been working on this one for a while, as we have two versions of the fastest fists on Azeroth, both with 442% Haste, but one staying at level 1, while the other goes to 6 to take advantage of Seal of the Crusader for an extra 40% attack speed, culminating in a 0.2 second swing! While we can't really know if it's really the fastest swing speed ever in WoW, it seems like a pretty safe bet. Check out as Exehn takes down level 32s and even plans to level this character to 70 using only punches!
      You can check out all the gear used here, and here's the original speedster, the level 1 punch master!

      More hotfixes for BCC and Classic Era!
      October 4 (Source)
      Burning Crusade Classic
      Brewfest is again up and running on all realms, and will end at 23:59 server time tomorrow, October 5. Developers’ note: We initially set up Brewfest 2021 in Burning Crusade Classic to run for the same duration as it ran in 2007 in original Burning Crusade, but we’ve decided to bring it back for another day. Hunter Feeding pets Sporeling Snack and Kibler's Bits no longer generates threat. WoW Classic
      Fixed an issue where some spells were missing visual effects.

      All "pre-made" groups will again be allowed to queue for Battlegrounds with the next weekly Burning Crusade Classic reset in each region.
      (Source)
      With the next weekly Burning Crusade Classic reset in each region, all “pre-made” groups will again be allowed to queue for Battlegrounds.
      After this hotfix, grouped players will primarily face opponents who queued in groups of similar sizes and the matchmaker will now match raid groups of 6 or more players against at least one group of 6 or more players.
      If the total number of players in your raid is smaller than the maximum size of the Battleground, the matchmaker will automatically fill your side with other groups or individuals. If there are no large pre-mades in the queue, party groups of 5 or fewer players will be placed against other parties of 5 or fewer players.
      Please note: Queuing alone or in small parties will not guarantee an opposing team with no large pre-mades.

      Blizzard have announced a change to the minimal global cooldown reduction after haste, coming with this weekly reset:
      GCD Change (Source)
      With scheduled weekly maintenance (7:00 a.m. PDT, Tuesday, September 28 in this region), Spell Haste will now lower the global cooldown (GCD) to a minimum of 1.0 second. It has been possible for players to approach a minimum of 0.75 seconds since Burning Crusade Classic launched.
      This hotfix is intended to bring the behavior of the GCD in line with version 2.4.0 of Burning Crusade, which the gameplay conditions of Burning Crusade Classic 2.5.2 are based on. Due to a bug in the original 2.4.0 code, players with high Spell Haste in original Burning Crusade were sometimes able to cast certain spells less than second apart, and they would also sometimes be delayed to over a second, based on how their actions were lining up with the server’s tick rate.
      With this hotfix, we’ve decided that the fairest and most accurate thing we could do is to replicate the intent of the original game and enforce that Spell Haste cannot reduce the GCD below 1.0 second.
      Thank you for all of your feedback on this issue.
