I'm getting it soon because I managed to get a hold of a friend that has an ipad but still what pisses me off about this is that these exclusive cool Dlc/skins/etc are usually IOS and most of us have to shit ourselves to get it because not everyone has an IOS device, on the contrary those who have iphones or ipads can easily get this kind of stuff if an androud exclusive promo comes out. Gotta love capitalism, appart from the wwe/wwf hulk hogan or whatever this is still a very capitalist promotion And the "best " thing about it is IoS devices are in nothing superior to others, in fact, they are kind of shit.
Blizzard didn't really have a say in the matter.... at least not unless they don't do this. You do realize this is sponsored by Apple, right?
I own and ipad and I just bought it. I totally don't care for cosmestic differences in games and I haven't bought any of the other 3 paid portraits (I spent around 12 hours in WoW for the first time to get Lyiadrin, though), but I got it because I can, it's reasonably cheaper than the others, the money goes to charity, and it's exclusive and time-limited.
Im a pure f2p player and my initial though was to no push money in thisgame so if at any moment i want to leave i could do it without remorse.
Neverterless im going to buy this Khadgar Skin for:
-The first pc game i put in my first computer was warcraft I . The first game i buy was Warcraft II with the ampliation ( still have the boxes and manual and cds) And the character i liked more was khadgar ( even if they restrained polymorph spell in the Deadwing map)And dont like medith because he was a traitor to humanity ( and for in WCI he tosed me a lot of fireballs in his assassination quest in wich you cant get reinforcements)
-Is for a good cause,even with only the skin, the arcane ping and the nostalgic i thing i can invest 5 € for a good cause. Hell i almost reinstal WCII to play the ampliation campaign!
After that story i want to know. If a have acces to a mac computer ( tower one) Can i also buy the skin with it or must be only from an iphone or a ipad?
Exact same sentiments!
Sidenote: YOU CAN'T BE MAD AT BLIZZARD PEOPLE!!! Blizzard is just participating in something sponsered by Apple. This is just something extra, and so that's why it's for mage, not a different class. Also please just STOP SAYING iPads and other IOS devices are overpriced and crappy. Your opinions are fine, but this isn't about that, and I disagree anyways. Would you people rather that they don't help animals and just not help because the whiny hearthstone community can't seem to handle a hero that is a promotion that isn't for other platforms because of something out of Blizzard's control. Do I wish it was for more platforms? Yes. Should we punish Blizzard for releasing a hero they might have never released ever if not for this promotion SAVING ANIMALS, especially when they have no control over the platforms? Heck no.
