Alternative WoW subscription plans
Wolfshead calls the current one-size fits all World of Warcraft monthly subscription Welfare for Hardcore Players, because the players who play the least subsidize those who play the most. And he suggests alternative WoW subscription plans at lower price, for example just the basic edition, or packages without PvP, or without raiding, for people who don't use that sort of content anyway. There could even be packages with better customer support, or including world events. Most other forms of entertainment, for example cable TV, cost more the more content you want to have access to.
Do you think alternative subscription plans for World of Warcraft would be a good idea? Should people who take up more of the developers time pay more than those who just use the vanilla content? And which package would you choose for yourself?
