Is there really going to be anyone who is genuinely shocked when it happens?

Probably. We don't know if this would even come to the US. Asia doesn't actually use a subscription and they are very micro-transaction focused over there as it is. But I can't see why they wouldn't test the waters here as well.

WoW General Forums.

They're going to be surprised for about six months before, seven months during and three years after the feature goes live.

They don't have enough money yet to buy the moon so they gotta take steps.

Nothing shocking in post-Valve-hats world we're living in ;P

one thing worth noting is that these new WOW hats are account-wide. They will mail you the hat to every current and future character you make

EA does do it, you just have to unlock it through collections. You'll probably spend less money than you will on those helms.

Also, you can't trade or sell those helms like you can the pieces in the cartel market. So the ONLY way you can ever obtain them is through real money, rather than credits, like I usually do.
