Cheating on WoW: Riders of Icarus + Pay to Win Rant

Despite the myriad flaws that quickly drove me away from the game, part of me still has a soft spot for dearly departed Dragon’s Prophet.

As an side, sometimes I really like my job. In what other profession could I find myself using phrases like “Sir Mittens the Sparkle Kangaroo”?

Also on MMO Bro, I take another look at MMO business models, which used to be one of my favourite rant topics. This time I take a look at the concept of “pay to win,” and I come to the conclusion we may have been wrong about it all along.
