Blizzard announced some significant changes to how World of Warcraft players can purchase game time

Blizzard just announced some significant changes to how World of Warcraft players can purchase game time, and players aren't happy about it. In a forum post, WoW community manager Bornakk broke the news that, going forward, players would only be able to purchase game time for World of Warcraft in increments of 60 days, meaning you can no longer make a one-time purchase for 30, 90, and 180 days of World of Warcraft game time.

But this change does not affect "World of Warcraft" subscriptions, which players can still buy on a recurring monthly basis or in increments of 90 and 180 days.Although subscriptions are probably the most common way to access the game, many players prefer to purchase the game time as a once-off purchase.It is an excellent option if you do not play consistently, as you can just purchase a little bit of game time whenever the player needs it rather than committing to a monthly fee that potentially gets wasted.

The developers have not presented any explanation for their decision - the official communication on this matter is quite laconic. It is possible that the step is motivated by a desire to fight bots, whose accounts have so far often been maintained precisely thanks to cheap, 30-day access cards.

"We recently conducted a review on the available services in all currencies. Based on this, we have decided to alter the available Game Time options in the Blizzard Shop. As of today, the Game Time options of 30, 90, and 180 days have been removed and Game Time is only available as a purchase of 60 Days," reads the entry on Blizzard forum.

The WoWHead website, on the other hand, believes the decision may have emerged as a path Minimize the use of bots that normally use WoW tokens as a way to acquire game time. According to the vehicle, this was a recurring problem both on the main servers and in the classic experience. How Tokens purchased by playing the MMO can only be used to purchase individual time packages – and no recurring subscriptions – an increase in the minimum time will affect the pocket of those who use the illegal tool.

Even if Blizzard is just adjusting to the industry standard, it's easy to see why having fewer payment options is frustrating. One thing to take into account is that buying game time (or a subscription) at a larger increment rewards you with a hefty discount. Buying game time in a lump of 180 days would save you about $25 as opposed to paying monthly. But because that's still a lot of money (180 days is about $75), it's natural that some players wouldn't want to commit to a subscription where they might forget to cancel when that six months is up. At the same time, other commenters are pointing out that you can immediately cancel a subscription after buying it and it only takes a few seconds. Sure, it's an extra step, but it's a pretty harmless way of avoiding an unwanted charge.

There are over 500 comments between the official forum post and a thread on Reddit. Many players expressed their frustration and confusion over why the "World of Warcraft" developer made the change suddenly and without any warning.
