Snart kan du köpa speltid i guld - eller kränga tokens och istället tjäna en slant. Guldförsäljning har blivit laglig!

#Blizzard inleder veckan med en rejäl nyhet - inom kort kommer du att kunna slippa prenumerationsavgiften i #World of Warcraft och istället köpa speltid med guld. Systemet är enkelt, men kräver lite förklaring.

Spelare kommer att kunna köpa WoW Tokens via spelets inbyggda affär för riktiga pengar, och sedan sälja dem genom auktionssystemet. När någon köper ett token binds det till spelaren och bara de kan använda det för att få 30 dagars speltid. Det gör att du kan grinda dig till speltid för det aktuella marknadspriset - budgivning kommer inte att vara tillåtet.

Indirekt innebär detta att ryktena om att Blizzard kommer att tillåta guldförsäljning för riktiga pengar blev sanna, genom den lilla omvägen via tokens.

FAQ

THE BASICS

Q: How do I buy a WoW Token for real money?
A: WoW Tokens will be available for purchase for real money through the World of Warcraft in-game Shop. You can access the Shop through the row of feature buttons next to your character’s bags.

Q: I need gold! How do I sell a WoW Token to another player?
A: You’ll be able to sell WoW Tokens through a dedicated Token exchange in the Auction House, located in a new Game Time section. WoW Tokens cannot be traded or sold any other way.

Q: How much gold will I receive when I sell a WoW Token?
A: The gold value of a Token will be determined dynamically based on supply and demand. When you put a Token up for sale, you’ll be quoted the amount of gold you’ll receive upon a successful sale. If you then decide to place the Token up for sale, that amount is locked in, and the gold will be sent to your mailbox after another player purchases your Token.

Q: I need game time! How do I buy a WoW Token from the Auction House?
A: When you visit the Auction House, you’ll be presented with the current market price for a WoW Token in your game region—there’s no bidding involved, and all Tokens in a game region are priced the same at any given moment. If you decide to purchase one, you’ll receive it in your mailbox, and can then immediately redeem it for game time.

Q: How much game time do I get by redeeming a WoW Token?
A: You’ll receive 30 days of game time when you redeem a WoW Token.

Q: Can I resell a WoW Token after I’ve purchased it for gold?
A: No, each WoW Token can only be sold once. After you purchase a Token for gold, it becomes Soulbound. At that point, it can only be redeemed for game time.

THE DETAILS
Q: How much will a WoW Token cost on the Shop?
A: Pricing details will be announced at a later date.

Q: Why are you introducing the WoW Token feature?
A: We’ve heard feedback from players that they’d be interested in a secure, legitimate way to acquire gold that doesn’t involve the use of unauthorized third-party gold-selling services—one of the primary sources of account compromises. We also know players who’ve amassed large amounts of gold through regular play would be interested in the ability to trade some to other players in exchange for game time, helping cover their subscription costs. The WoW Token feature gives players on both sides of the equation a secure and straightforward way to make that exchange. It opens up a new kind of payment option for World of Warcraft players, and we hope that it will also help lead to fewer account compromises and a better game experience overall.

Q: How is acquiring gold by selling a WoW Token different from buying gold from third-party services?
A: Buying gold from third-party services negatively impacts the game experience for everyone. The overwhelming majority of the gold these services provide comes from stolen player accounts, halting the victims’ ability to play the game and contribute to their guilds. On top of this, gold selling companies often farm resources using hack programs, sell fake product codes as a scam, and spam entire realms with ads to buy gold, disrupting the game in very real ways.

The WoW Token allows players to exchange real money for gold in a secure and sanctioned way—together with the ongoing efforts of our developers, support staff, and anti-hack teams to stop the exploits these companies use and help players who have become victims of their operations, we hope the Token can help make World of Warcraft a safer and more enjoyable game for all of our players.

Q: Why can’t players set their own prices for the WoW Token?
A: The WoW Token feature is designed to facilitate the exchange of gold and game time between players in as secure, convenient, and fair a way as possible, and without making players feel like they’re playing a game with their hard-earned money. Having a set current market price and a straightforward exchange system is the best way to achieve that—you don’t need to worry about whether your Token will sell or not due to being undercut or the market shifting, and everyone receives exactly the amount of gold they were quoted.

Q: What happens if the price quoted to me is different from what the Token actually sells for?
A: You will always receive the gold amount quoted to you at the time you place a Token up for sale, regardless of what the current price is when the item actually sells.

Q: How long should I expect to receive my gold after putting a Token up for sale? How does the game determine whose Token to sell?
A: The amount of time it takes to receive your gold after putting a Token up for sale depends on a variety of factors, including the current supply and demand. When you list a Token, you’ll be quoted an estimated time based on the current Token supply and the rate of recent transactions, but the actual amount of time it takes to sell is likely to vary (note that Tokens do not expire). In most cases, Tokens are sold in the order in which they were put up for sale; however, there are some exceptions to this, such as when a Token purchase is undergoing verification.

Q: If I buy a WoW Token from the Auction House, how long does it take to receive the Token?
A: Just like a standard Auction House purchase, it will normally arrive in your mailbox nearly instantaneously.

Q: If I’m buying a WoW Token for real money from the in-game Shop, how long does it take to receive it?
A: Once you successfully complete a purchase, your Token should arrive in your inventory (or mailbox, if your inventory is full) almost immediately.

Q: Do Tokens expire? What happens if I accidentally delete one?
A: No, Tokens do not expire. They also can’t be deleted, so no need to fear accidentally trashing them.

Q: Can I stop my auction or receive a refund after it was purchased (for gold or real money)?
A: All transactions are considered final and auctions cannot be cancelled, so make sure you’re certain you want to proceed before listing or buying a Token. To help prevent unintentional transactions, you will be prompted to confirm your purchase or sale before it’s finalized.

Q: Is there a deposit? Does the Auction House take a cut of the Token seller’s gold?
A: There’s no deposit, and the Auction House does not take a cut of the gold for WoW Token sales. The standard deposit is designed to dissuade players from spamming the auction house with items that aren’t selling, and the standard cut is designed to dissuade players from buying and reselling items for minuscule markups. These issues don’t apply to the WoW Token, so there’s no need for a deposit or cut.

Q: Will each game region have its own WoW Token exchange? Will everyone in a game region have access to it?
A: Each game region—Americas (including ANZ realms), Europe, Taiwan, Korea, and China—will have its own shared WoW Token exchange. We’ll share additional details at a later date.

Tack till Quid, Droopydawg för detta #nyhetstips!
Förutom att Plex inte blir soulbound. Det blir inte heller Krono i Everquest 2 och du kan sälja och köpa valutorna i spelet. Tror det är bra att de inte ska gå att spekulera om tokens, Krono i EQ2 började på ca 600 platinum (100 gold = 1 plat), idag lig... 04/03 Känns som att priset för rares/gear skjuter ännu mer i höjden nu när Blizzard faktiskt sätter ett pris på hur mycket guld är värt i riktiga pengar. Vi leker med tanken att en månad kommer att kosta 100k. Det är ju 13 euro då, dvs 7,6k/euro. En spectral... 03/03 "Vänta lite, jag måste grinda nu så jag får ihop tid så jag kan SPELA spelet". Det låter ju helt galet men jag är inte den som ska döma. Tycker man det är kul så FINE, det skadar ju ingen direkt. 03/03 Är ju i princip samma sak som att köpa guld av farmare, när Blizzard får sin del av kakan (läs: hela kakan) så var det minsann inte lika negativt för spelets ekonomi längre. 03/03 Questing, garrison, crafting och mycket tid. Har dragit in 100k sedan release av WoD, och säkert spenderat lika mycket på mina karaktärer. Kan inte sätta tummen på exakt vad, men det är mycket lättare att dra in pengar i WoD...och jag håller inte ens... 03/03 Med tanke på att 10k är hur lite som helst Och hur lätt det är att dra in guld på AH så tror jag över 100k lätt. Annars kommer alla kunna köpa game time för guld hur lätt som helst och ingen skulle lägga ut tokens längre 03/03 Vad kostar det i dag i kronor i månadsavgift? Det kommer bli motsvarande. Fördelen för dom är att nu kan de smyga upp priset för spelarna. Det är svårare att bedömma hur mycket en fiktiv valuta är än en reell. 03/03 Bättre sent än aldrig. 03/03 sitter på 100k+ g mums för mig 03/03 Alltså din jämförelse är så klockren! Alltså varför ska ett 10 år gammalt spel med 10 miljoner spelare försöka tjäna lite pengar med dagens system. HELT SJUKT mannen Tror du behöver titta över hur du ser på spel och företag. 03/03
