The idea of using in-game gold to paying a monthly subscription (WoW Token System) was officially put forward by Blizzard when the patch 6.1 hit the PTR in January. After that the concept of WoW Token was presented, and the Token system had been tested for nearly a month in the PTR already. Today Blizzard has announced the final release date and the starting price of the WoW Token to World of Worcraft on their website just a few hours ago. So WoW Token is really coming!
Let’s view the announcement from Blizzard that was posted on their official website:
“The WoW Token will be going live in the Americas region (North America, Latin America, Australia, and New Zealand) on April 7 when maintenance concludes, at approximately 10 a.m. PDT. The WoW Token will be available for $20 USD/$25 AUD for the in-game Shop, and will be set at a starting price of 30,000 gold in the Auction House across the Americas region. From that point forward, the gold price will automatically fluctuate based on player supply and demand. To start we’ll be limiting the number of Token purchases to 10 within a 30-day period, but this limit may be adjusted over time. While Tokens will be available immediately from the Shop, please note that there may be a delay before Tokens put up for sale on the Auction House become available for purchase with gold.
We’ll announce additional regional details closer to the launch of the WoW Token in other regions.”
Here are some queries about WoW Token from wow players.
1. It’s excited that Token is going to be available in a few hours later, but do we still can purchase game-time directly by cash?
A1: Yes, Blizz just adds one more option for players who have problem with paying monthly subscription. If you want, you still can buy subscription directly for $14.99.
2. Will exchange price stay at 30,000 gold all the time?
A2: No, it won’t. The exchange price of 30,000 gold is just the initial price, then the price will be influenced by real supply and demand of the market in World of Warcraft, so if there’s a surplus prices will be low and prices will go up if they’re being snatched up quickly.
3. Will World of Warcraft become a totally free-to-play game later?
A3: No, it won’t. At least as the latest response from Blizz about this issue the answer is “No.” So, Token might be a good middle solution for this matter.
