…tell me what’s happening?
An unexpected gift from Blizzard arrived today in Battlenet launcher – a transmog set of a fairy moth. It’s quite amusing, notably wings, although the chest piece makes woman character butts look three sizes bigger :)
It caused a shitstorm that I did not expect though – negative comments prevail. The thing is, it is available as a gift for 6-month subscribers and then it migrates to Battlenet shop.
Guys, come on. It’s no wonder they want to warm up the subs as the expansion is being delayed. It’s not the first time Blizzard offers loyalty gifts – most recently a flying mouse mount (cute!) and a flying ship mount during BfA. It’s not a power up that renders your toon overpowered or something you can’t play without. It’s not that the transmog sets now move to the shop.
And in no universe the set designers are responsible for class design and are the reason of delaying Shadowlands. Yes, there are still plenty of geniuses that think Blizzard is some single entity (probably Ion Hazzikostas in person) that cannot work on story, music, visuals and gameplay simultaneously, or that there could be multiple jobs in game dev. Besides, the set was datamined as far as patch 8.2.5.
I really, really can’t understand this shit. People complaining that loyalty gift is uhm… a loyalty gift (exactly what it says on the cover)? It’s like complaining that raid sets are earned in raids, or you have to trap pets in pet battles to use them for pet battles.
Enjoying my wings.
