5000 hours for a pet is a punch in the face from Publishers

Whatever, if they continue their practices I'll be laughing my ass off when this game goes f2p in this region. Let's hope they dont. And believe it or not I wish all the best for this game which is why I'm saying what I'm saying. 

If its free to play then everything would be switched to cash shop more and you would be whining more...

Its a FREE pet, a bonus. These games are made to be played for years, so 5,000 hours is a lot of hrs, but not if you plan to play a long time. In the meantime get $9 and buy one if you want one so bad.

Yep, you are rather predictable too. Can you just not deal with the fact that someone doesnt find your type attractive without all these corny comebacks?

Given that we're encouraged to run the game in the background (almost like the OLD days of Sim City where you could turn disasters off) ...doesn't it stand to reason that we'd reach 5000 logged hours well before the average Standard of many other games?

Once again, I'm not going to wade through all the replies. I'll just go by page one.

In my opinion, pets are not just an 'optional extra'. They are a mechanic to the game. They have their own 'breeding' system attached to them and they do come with extras which will, in the long run, be more than convenience.

That being said, it is a computer game made by people who, ultimately want to make money. One copy of World of Warcraft plus an annual subscription costs around 150 dollars/euros. You are getting the game for 30. Be happy. 

It doesn't matter that it is free-to-play anywhere else. It's simple economics. They will charge what people are willing to pay.

That being said, I'd rather pay more up front and get a pet included. 

Oh yeah...I did (Explorer pack). B|

It is a LOYALTY reward* (for being loyal and playing a long time, wow go figure!).

 

NOT a loot drop you grind hours for.

 

 

You people make me dizzy.

I just like poking fun sometimes when I have a few minutes free, I am just as impatient for the game to start like everyone else. You fell for it, sorry. No hard feelings, have a nice day :)

I will admit that 5000 is a bit much, but consider the fact that its an item they usually charge for given for free for just being a dedicated player in their game. Although 500 hours would show loyalty just as well. 9_9

I think people are taking the whole pet situation a bit too seriously, if you friend next door saved up and bought 3 rumbas for his house and you were stuck with a regular old vacuum cleaner, its all just convenient, doesn't mean that one will clean better or worse than the other, your friend is just much lazier than you are so he needs automated robots to clean his home.

Cash grab shops are what players get when they feel that sub fees are 'unfair'.

5000 hours, 24/7 power on a gaming pc with an i7  6700, a GTX980, 16GB of ram, one 7200RPM sata HDD and a gaming keyboard and mouse, load wattage of 372 watts. Lets say you live in California and power costs $0.33/kWH , ((372*5000)/1000)*0.33 = $613.80 to acquire the free 5000 hour pet asap, worst case scenario where your PC is at constant full power load.

The above I think is the main issue he's taking with this "Sure you can get it for free! You only need to play/afk for 5000 hours is all" idea.

The power costs alone would let you buy 100's of pets at the cash shop, and even in the more realistic scenario of only occasional full load when actively gaming, it would still cost far more than the pet costs to rack up those 5000 hours just in your electricity bill.

If you played 4 hrs per day of full load and afked the rest of the time and that were able to magically reduce power draw at those non-playing times to 0. That's still a total of 833 hours of full load time. ((372*833)/1000)*0.33 = ~$102 for the free 5k hour pet

5000 hours is like 2-3 years of playtime with 8 hours a day. After so many hours l dont think a T1 cat would mean anything at all. 

Especially game will already be F2P and cash shop items sellable on AH.
