Blizzard has revealed that the World of Warcraft team may be looking at implementing a system that would allow players of the popular MMO the chance to trade in-game gold for game time, an option that has become quite popular in the MMO market.
The concept isn't entirely new, as I stated above. Various games are currently allowing players to trade in-game currency for game time, such as WildStar, EVE Online and ArcheAge. "Our current thought on this is that it would give players a way to use their surplus gold to cover some of their subscription cost, while giving players who might have less play time an option for acquiring gold from other players through a legit and secure system," the blog reads.
"A few other online games offer a similar option, and players have suggested that they’d be interested in seeing something along those lines in WoW."
The concept was discussed within a blog post outlining the year of 2015 for World of Warcraft, which you can check out over here
to add into the discussion.
