Blizzard has announced WoW Token, a new controversial feature for the legendary MMORPG World of Warcraft.
WoW Tokens is a new feature that enable players to exchange gold for tokens that other players have bought with real money. Tokens can be purchased from the in-game cash shop and sold on the auction house instantly for the current market price. After getting a token it becomes soulbound and can be exchanged for 30 days game time.
Is this an ominous step towards Pay to Win or is this just Blizzard trying to give players an alternative way to pay for the game?
