I just noticed a little something interesting.
Starting today (11/27/09) and going thru Sunday (11/29) the original World of Warcraft game will be on sale thru the Blizzard store as a digital download for a mere five dollars. Apparently hard copies will be similarly priced this weekend at retail stores also.
My roving reporter/price checker lovely wife who is out shopping at oh dark thirty this black friday morning also tells me that the World of Warcraft battle chest (original game+Burning Crusade+near useless guide book) is going for twenty. Then again, that may be a local sale at one store only, I can’t confirm anything right now on the battle chest.
Been thinking about using Refer-a-friend to multi box your way to 60?
I know I have. I simply never got around to it.
Will I do it now?
Have a friend that you have been trying to talk into Wow for ever?
Drop five bucks and get them the first month and first sixty levels.
I know of a dad who is planning to buy accounts for his sons this Christmas. They have been using his and/or his wifes accounts up till now, but with both parents and three sons all playing they can field five mans in-house.
Am I recommending it to you?
No, not particularly. I just give information, what you do with it is entirely up to you.
I am just pointing it out to you, my wonderful readers, the same way I might point out an ad in the sunday sales flyer to a friend. This just happens to be the way I talk to you, as opposed to over a cup of coffee at the local Waffle House.
Enjoy the weekend,
This post brought to you be the fact that I would rather gouge out my eyes with a spork that go shopping on the day after Thanksgiving. My wife calls it Black Friday and looks forward to it for weeks. I call it National Asshat day. I am a firm believer that trade chat will be quiet at the moment, and all pugs will run like clockwork. All the asshats are already busy.
Not all the shoppers this morning are asshats, but most of the asshats will be there.
That by itself is enough to keep me at home.
