World Of Warcraft Subscription Plan Will Rise In November

Fair or not, Blizzard decided to increase the subscription rates for World of Warcraft UK players. Seems like the Warlords of Draenor expansion will bring us new content, a visual overhaul, and a higher subscription plan. (PC, World of Warcraft)

Really still not a good move after such a loss in subscriptions. Many other mmos keep releasing with such high quality and the big increase in the free to play market within the past 2 years especially. People should not be given another reason of why not to play WoW. People of whom already played wow may come back just to tackle the expansion but newer players would be more cautious.

But why is it that it's the UK players that always get screwed?

You are wrong, they are just putting UK closer to the rest of Europe, in Portugal i pay 12.99€ euros per month to play wich is the equivalent to 10,38 pounds, they arent just "screwing UK players", they are simply opening your buttcheeks to the size of the rest of the european players :)

Right now, even with the increase to 9.99 pounds, your still the ones playing for cheaper in all Europe.

Not sure what their logic is.

* They LOSE 800,000 subscriptions and their answer to that problem is to increase the cost of subscribing ?

Only a fool thinks that is a good idea. A Money grubbing, 7 Ferrari having fool.

Perhaps they're thinking about putting someone to work on a content patch. Part time. Maybe.

Really? If they stop paying the celebs for all the cheesy commercials, maybe they could have more money in the bank.

That sucks for UK subscribers. Money changes value, but that still sucks.

Dang, what a terrible decision by Blizz. What the hell are they thinking?

They are not changing anything, the money value has changed. They are just re-adjusting the price or else it would be cheaper. Hence why it's only for UK.
