At least for this month. Looks like they are testing out the F2P waters.

    Umm...no.

     

    Its called free for a month then we charge you because we sucked you in.

    I don't think they test the F2P waters, but want to win some people back to buy the addon. I heard that MoP sales weren't that great and they probably don't want to them to drop even lower with WoD.

    IF WoW goes F2P alot of current F2P games will get in trouble...

    Anyone know if this only applies to new accounts, or can anyone log in during this period?

     

    It's been awhile since I've visited Azeroth...

    Nothing to do with ArcheAge.  Everything to do with WoD

    It's on Blizzard's site. And today isn't April 1st. So yeah, it's legit.

  • siempisiempi WinterswijkPosts: 5Member

    Oh you mean the expansion with the sudden focus on open world PVP, Housing and crafting? Sounds like ArcheAge lelele :D

    Have they ever done anything like this with prior expansions?  No they have not.  Of course It has everything to do with the release of Archeage.  You'd have to be very gullible to believe it has nothing, at all, to do with the release of Archeage.  Blizzard didn't get to be number one by being stupid.

    You should definitely download from that website and enter all your personal information and bank account number. Please report back and let us know what happens.

    What Blizzard employee confirmed this?

    I am not saying this promotion is bogus, but the link in the OP's post is 100% bogus and not Blizz official.

    For the record, its nowhere to be found on Blizz/WoW's official sites, and never once mention on MMO Champ.

    even if it did go f2p im not going back to it, i left for a reason and having a sub is not it

    Hey guys,

    The media link to our site is a graphic used from some promotions we were running for select players of our other games that haven't tried WoW yet. It's part of an email sent to them.

    The free time it's referring too is the 30 day month that all new subscribers get.

    Do AA fans really think that game will even pass the million player mark after the first month or two ? It's a niche title that will probably have a solid following but hardly a threat to the wow monster.

    They have an upcoming expansion that they think will bring back the glory days of wow in a time that subs have never been lower since it's peak. Obviously they're doing what they can to get people back in playing so they'll stay when it comes out.

    FYI it has been f2p for quite a while in a very limited form. You can play for free up to lvl 20 and with disabled trading / chat functions.

    PEOPLE PLEASE CHECK YOUR BROWSER.. ITS NOT BLIZZARD IF IT SAYS ANYTHING OTHER THAN BATTLE.NET. THIS IS A PHISHING SCAM. + BLIZZ WOULD HAVE ANNOUNCED A F2P CONVERSION 

     

    EDIT: NOT A SCAM BUT NOT A F2P CONVERSION EITHER.  PLEASE STILL MAKE SURE YOU CHECK BROWSERS, SO MANY HACK ATTEMPTS ALWAYS HAPPEN BEFORE XPAC

    Blizzard gave my account Mist of Panderia free.

    "Richard,

    The Iron Horde is coming and to help prepare you for the invasion, we’ve given your account a FREE digital copy of Mists of Pandaria®. When you reactivate your WoW subscription, you'll be able to battle to level 90 and get ready for the launch of Warlords of Draenor™ on 11.13.14."

    So you logged in on a work/school day and there weren't many people?

    Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

    Good luck, Blizzard will bring something with glory in it. I highly doubt it'll be glory days.

    i got the same email MOP promotion for one of my WOW accts last week

     

    the Op's post seems to pertain to emails sent to Hearthstone players -- that never played WOW

    If WoW went F2P even for a month the internet would explode... looks around Internet still working so... WoW didn't go F2P.
  • NickraiderNickraider Posts: 123Member Uncommon
    There are people who still haven't played WoW? O.o
