PSA: Don’t Use WoW Tokens on Your WoW Account
There’s currently an issue with WoW tokens at the moment and they do not get registered onto one’s WoW account when used. They are consumed and disappear, and the money or WoW gold you paid for it will still be charged, but you will not obtain your game time.
It is a big problem at the moment as a lot of players are unable to renew their subscriptions or sell their tokens for WoW gold in the name of their WoW account.
WoW Account: The Trouble With Tokens
Check here for the original thread on the issue. There still isn’t a fix for it, but Blizzard says that they’re working on it and we shouldn’t worry too much. This is, of course, going to be a bigger problem if more and more people use the WoW token unwittingly and end up with another issue that Blizzard CS has to solve.
So get this issue going around and inform as many people as you can. The less people that have this problem, the better. For now, it is best to keep your WoW token in you bag and simply do not use it. If you have to resub, it may be ideal to do it the old fashioned way rather than buying another token for your hard earned WoW gold and see it fail miserably. There are already a few people that tried several times for their WoW account, but simply ended up losing a lot more WoW gold than they intended.
Of course, Blizzard will eventually be returning all the lost items and gold to their rightful owners but, until then, you may end up a bit too poor to continue on with your day-to-day activities with that lack of gold on your WoW account. Again, for now, inform everyone you know so that they won’t make a mistake and compound to the problem. Take care and happy gaming.
