WoW: Purchasable loot boxes? From Pay2Win memes to player requests – column

Ashran returns as an epic battleground in WoW Battle for Azeroth Patch 8.2.

If Blizzard is currently complained about, it turns in most cases about the grisly Pay2Win system behind Diablo Immortal’s in-game shop. Among other things, at the end of some content you get the opportunity to buy particularly great loot boxes that beckon with better, greater and more frequent loot. The streamer MrMG quickly transferred this mechanism to WoW and created an image that he “allegedly” discovered on the public test server. For most WoW players, after a short deliberation, it quickly became clear that this was a joke. Others, however, took the picture quite seriously.

The mere fact that you have to think about such an absurd mechanism for a moment in order to declare it a fake shows how little something like that would really surprise you. So it’s no wonder that there were players who took the picture at face value.
