MMORPGs like World of Warcraft have a bunch of different mounts and some of them can only be attained by completing achievements, finishing raids, or just getting very lucky. These mounts are the envy of all other players in the game. It feels good when you get one.
Well, the Vulture mount in Blizzard’s Heroes of the Storm is the same way. It was announced a while ago but recently Blizzard revealed how players will be able to get it. It will only be obtainable if you use Blizzard’s Recruit A Friend feature.
This means that gamers will need to recruit four friends and all four of your friends will need to get to level 10, so they will need to play and win a lot of games. Since four friends plus yourself make up a team, this is Blizzard’s way of encouraging teamplay among people that you know. So this mount won’t be easy to get.
Many players are upset by these high requirements, but the game’s director Dustin Browder, sees this as beneficial towards the long-term prospects of the game. “Very sorry to our veteran players. =( We did get this in late. We believe it is good for the long term health of the game.” Maybe that’s true. I guess we will see how that works out.
