Over the weekend, Blizzard’s co-CEO Mike Ybarra tweeted the “Heroic SoD [Sanctum of Domination] “Sales Run” he will participate with his guild. For non-Warcraft players, this is a fairly harmless invitation to watch, but the reference of “Sales Run” is actually a proposal to let other unqualified players pass the high-end Raid exchange for in-game gold coins, this practice is called “raid Boosting”.
What needs to be clear is that Raid Boosting does not violate the rules of World of Warcraft, and is actually a relatively common practice. The concept is simple: I, a new (or just bad) World of Warcraft player, wants fashionable loot, but I don’t have the realistic hope of getting it myself, so I threw a bunch of games at you, the veteran (and) The gold coins are good) WoW players, guide me to complete the most difficult raid in the game. Even if I die all the way, I will almost certainly die, but I will still get the reward I deserve at the end.
Tonight (20-23) starting at 5 pm Pacific time, we may broadcast our heroic SoD sales and high-end m+. 👍👍🎃😍October 16, 2021
It is not necessarily about vanity.Celebrities Kiriyama STRIX Explain that for players who want to enter high-end raids, raid promotion may also be an important part of the process.
“For those who don’t know, there is a website called Warcraft log They explained that each player’s performance on the boss will be analyzed. “This is the main indicator used by high-end guilds to recruit players.”
“What the promotion gives you is that it allows you to bypass the gear grinding. This allows you to better enter the low-end guilds, which may recruit anyone with gears. Once you enter this guild, you will look for the good ones. Resolve and repeat this process until your resolution is good enough to join a better guild. Now repeat it again, I hope you can enter a guild that meets your goals.”
There is also a good practical reason why the guild provides tour guide services: the mythical attack is extremely The cost is high, and the best way to obtain the funds needed to finance these companies is to sell services.
Despite this, many players think that Raid Promotion is almost like a form of cheating, morally, if not technically, because players are acquiring equipment and experience that they did not work properly and obtain. In Ybarra’s case, this unhappiness was magnified, because in the eyes of critics, he should know that this approach is not good for the game.
Cancel subscription now. If you don’t see how tweets like this can hurt the community, you should quit your job. Promotion is too harmful to the game, you should try to solve this problem instead of improving yourself. The guild needs money, but it needs to kill all chat channels and cause more problems.October 17, 2021
The role of real currency trading in the ascension increase further complicates the issue.this World of Warcraft Forum Post From the Denial of Service, Ybarra’s guild, listed the running price of “completely clearing” the ruling temple as 300,000 gold. Gold cannot be purchased directly in World of Warcraft, but it can be purchased indirectly through World of Warcraft tokens. The tokens are sold for $20 in the game and can be exchanged for 30 days of game time or $15 of Blizzard balance-or they can be sold in gold at auction houses.The price fluctuates, but Online list Indicates that the price of a token is usually slightly higher than 200,000 gold. If you enter it without any real bank, in other words, you must spend $40 to pass Sanctum of Domination in its entirety.
The Denial of Service list clearly states that “we do not sell for real money”. If a player is found to have violated Blizzard’s terms of service, it will cancel the operation and provide a full refund.But selling tokens in exchange for gold is not against the rules: in fact, Blizzard’s Support page To be very clear, players “can buy World of Warcraft tokens for real money from the store, and then sell them in gold at the auction house.”
Like many things in life, this is actually an optical problem: players who oppose this approach think that Ybarra is setting a (very) bad example.
However, on the other side of the coin, some people see it as a completely normal part of MMO life-some people even think this is a good thing, because it proves that Ybarra is a serious and loyal player. “What’s the big problem?” Reset user amnesia Asked. “Guy plays games and does what every top guild has been doing since 2003. Blizzard has bigger problems to be angry with.”
Another one named Dubbing, Added, “I admit that it’s crazy to see the company’s president doing this. But honestly, this is something that a raid player of a certain level has done and has been doing for a long time. He’s just doing anything normal. The first attacker will do things in the world.”
I remember buying the Starcaller title in Wrath because I have always been very good at making gold and it’s fun. I still remember paying a plumber to fix my toilet because I don’t want a headache. People who are angry about this should also repair their toilets.October 18, 2021
Ybarra declined to comment on the uproar caused by his tweet, but he seems to have alluded to it in subsequent tweets tweetHe wrote: “Games are a unity force…gathering all of us on the hobbies we like and love.” “Although everyone has different opinions and opinions, let us be kind and be good in what we like. Leaving epic memories in the game.”
The raid obviously went well.
There are not many good keys to complete with the @dos_guild buddies tonight. pic.twitter.com/ARo4DsTndYOctober 17, 2021
