Optimism Vs Cynicism
A lot of fun speculation with the announcement of a “free” flying pirate ship mount if you just prepay for game time.
Optimist in me : “Guys, we have such awesome content coming down the pipeline, you HAVE to stick around and see it! Trust us you won’t be let down! Here is a shiny mount just for being an awesome, dedicated playerbase willing to hang in there while these changes come down the pipeline.
Cynic in me : “Subs are bleeding, mood out there is bad, quick, let’s lock down subs to buy us time to figure out what the hell we are going to do with this mess.
I get the feeling that depending on how your Battle For Azeroth experience has been so far, is how you respond to this announcement.
