A crazy spiral of money: Asmongold on the absurd monetization of WoW
Asmongold came up with yesterday’s stream after a viewer donation monetization to speak of WoW and did not leave a good hair on the multiplayer role-playing game: “Let me explain what the point of WoW is. The first thing you do is buy the game. Then you buy the expansion, then you buy the subscription, then you buy the boost and then you buy the WoW token, um Buy gold to buy the boost for the raid.”
“Then you buy the other WoW Token to buy the gear on the auction house that you need to switch to tier gear, and then you buy another WoW Token to buy a boost for the next gear in advance After you buy WoW Token, you buy another WoW Token to buy enchantments and gems to keep your legendary [Gegenstände] to improve.”
“So basically you spend all your money on the game until you stop playing it. That’s how it works. That’s how you play WoW now. That’s what’s fun.” The streamer’s final sentence is dripping with sarcasm, underscoring his critical stance on the payment model from World of Warcraft.
