WOWGOLDPIG.COM: THIS TIME I’M NOT DRUNK Plus Where Did This Little Mushroom Spring From? (1/5)

Okay, kiddies, this time I am 100% sober.

Let me just explain my previous post: I was at a New Year’s gathering with old friends (all WoW players, mind you) and at one point (when we were all close to getting inebriated) we started talking about my blogsite and how they got a kick out of it…then one of them said "you gotta do WoWGoldPig, man!"

Now I thought he was being funny and I thought the name was funny – nay, hysterical! – and my tequila-addled brain released some chemicals that gave me the case of the schoolgirl giggles. At least that’s what I remember: me ROFL’ing over the name WoWGoldPig. And next thing I knew I was in my own apartment typing a post on WoWGoldPig right after checking out their site.

And then I passed out.

So anyway, what the heck is WoWGoldPig.com ?

Turns out it’s a site that sells WoW gold and only WoW gold. Now I don’t know what the genius who thought of the site name was on when it hit him like a bolt of lightning to call the site WoWGoldPig, but hey, whatever that was, I want some.

Kidding.

My curiosity is piqued. Why the name? Maybe customer service could give a proper explanation?

Let’s check out the sight together, shall we?

Here’s the landing page:

Hmm, price updates and newsletters? Maybe next time, hombres. *oinks back*

Now where’s that customer service link?

Ah, yes!

Contact The Pig

Wait a minute….

WoWGoldPig Contact Us

Oh come on, I can’t speak to a customer service rep unless I have an order???

Sheesh.

Man, I need to know why they named the site WoWGoldPig! It’s a question that’s close to killing me!

Grrrrrr.

Okay, fine, I’m ordering, dang you! If only to give me peace. You sprung up from nowhere and yet you’re already gnawing away at me. Dang you!

But first, gotta ask Cletus or Remus to pay for the order.

    WoWGoldPig.com – a site name that is one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of the world.

  2. Lestat de Lioncourt on 07 Jan 2009 at 12:58 am #

    Weird name. I hope they won’t have a weird service, too. I’ll try this one. Will let you know if their service is good.

    3rd time to order gold at wow gold pig… I received em all… *oink oink* rulezzz!

  4. Jason Burdick on 18 Feb 2009 at 4:53 pm #

    Starting to dislike these gold pig fellas This is my second purchase. I am going on 168 hours no delivery. I am pretty sure they have gotten in over their heads. I do not reccommend. Not until they take care of their backlog anyway. First time was about 48-50 hours. About twice as long as the 24 hour promise. But 168, yes that is 7 days, a whole week of waiting and emails and crap. Dont stop at this pigpen. Jason Burdick

    Well I ordered 2k worth of gold from wowgoldpig.com based on how happy everyone seemed. Well were rolling 36 hours and still No gold, No responce to my email, No phone call and not even No sorry were running low on gold. I will be sure to keep you updated on what happens and IF i ever receive my gold. Guess them being cheap means i got what i paid for! I will not be shopping here again! I will never buy form anyone but IGE.com again.

  6. Jess on 18 Mar 2009 at 10:17 am #

    I’m sad to hear that Antimurloc. I suspect that there’s a high demand on your server, well you have to contact their help support and ask for the real reason why they haven’t delivered your order yet. It happened to me once and I’m glad they took care of concern.

    WOW Gold Pig can be a bit slow, I bought 3000 gold.. got it alsmot immediatly.. within two days bought another 3000 as I was so impressed with their service, and got 2000 alsmot immedialty, and 1000 4 days later. However, I did get it, and for such a cheap price I have no complaints.

  8. N0rbert on 09 Oct 2009 at 6:55 pm #

    Just bought 5k and I’m waiting for it now, will give active update on how long it takes to get here. BTW, I better not get spam in my email…..>_>

  9. Quinn on 19 Oct 2009 at 2:44 am #

    Bought 3k as a test (16/10/09), got 2k within 24 hours and the other K the next day. I am in Aus and as such I got both through the mail but I would recommend them. Will be buying another 4k or so later on tonight.

  10. mukki on 29 Oct 2009 at 2:26 pm #

    I just ordered 10k — I’ll post here again if/when I get it :)

  11. mukki on 29 Oct 2009 at 3:26 pm #

    WOW. The delivery time was 3 hours, and it was face-to-face in game. Pretty impressive!

  12. THE COW on 01 Nov 2009 at 8:05 pm #

    Ordered 2k today as an test. got em 30 min later from an fellow level 80 hunter :) he came to me , talking perfect english. man i love this site !

  13. redpantz on 17 Jan 2010 at 2:21 am #

    I’ve ordered from these guys twice and while I received the order both times, I have some issues - Can these guys and others make it any less obvious that they are conducting a gold selling transaction? Whispering “This is the delivery guy.”, a level 1 toon with a name like “ziajiajs”. I’m already worried about getting banned, you’d think that if these companies wanted to stick around they would employ less telling practices of delivering the goods. The whole process of delivering gold in-game would be extremely suspicious to blizzard if blizz ever took 2 seconds to look at logs around the time you received your random charitable donation from an account where the user is logging in from China. This brings me to the other thing… I was expecting these guys to be US based. Nope. They could barely speak English beyond what was macro’d. The whispers, the actions, where you then transferred your gold to, etc… the footprint for what a transaction might look like while purchasing gold seems like it is quite easy to pick up. What really gives the transaction away in my mind are the randomized names of the level 1 toons… the broken english & the nature of the dialogue…. Do you think Blizzard doesn’t have logs of everything being said on their servers? Every whisper around the time of an unusually large gold transaction between two characters which have no previous interactions with one another? It is very surprising to me how people can get away with purchasing gold with any sort of frequency and continue to go undetected. Seems like almost a myth!? Good delivery times though =) Both under an hour for orders 1-5k.

  14. Goz on 08 Mar 2010 at 8:10 am #

    I was a really skiddish about ordering but I tried it just now. I ordered 2000g and received within about 15 minutes. Very discreet, cheap and fast. I would recommend :)

  15. J dizzle on 04 Apr 2010 at 9:45 pm #

    just bought some gold from the PIG. Very happy with the service. They hooked it up in like a couple hours: maybe 3. Went to check the mail and BAMMM….hello gold. Their service is the bomb. No phone calls, no bad english, no bs. After i put the order in i emailed them and asked em how long it would take. They told me less than 24 hours. I can live with that. And I like the fact that they under promised and over delivered. Just quick gold. Thank you for your site, i really dig it and u turned me on to an awesome service. Please keep it coming ill be sending folks this way. For the effing Horde!!

  16. Gunblade on 08 Apr 2010 at 10:00 pm #

    Just ordered some gold at the pig after a 1 week wait at MMOKings for “ZERO” delivery. Will post results for pig when i get the goods.

  17. Gunblade on 08 Apr 2010 at 10:38 pm #

    Update just got a email notice that delivery to mailbox has been made. This all under 2 hours of the order. The Pig has my thumbs UP!

  18. mr potato on 01 May 2010 at 10:58 am #

    just bought some based on this review, 7000 gold, delivered in under an hour. Will use again with no hesitation

  19. Leech on 05 Jul 2010 at 3:36 pm #

    The pig is a FRAUD! Maybe its not chinese, but the customer service is horrible. auto responses Etc. I ordered 20k and when they havent delivered after 5 days , i used paypal to get a refund.. and now the fuckers banned me.. complete scam if u ask me.. trying to leech out customer info.

  20. Kessel on 06 Jul 2010 at 1:03 am #

    It might be time to revisit this seller’s gold medal status. I tried using this service based partially on your reccomendation. I made two purchases last month that went pretty seemlessly. My third transaction was not so seemless and will be my last. I made a small order on July 2nd for 4000 gold. They took my payment and I waited for my delivery… and waited…. and waited. After 24 hours I contacted them and they said they had supply issues, so I waited some more. After 72 hours I recieved an email that they delivered the gold to my in game mailbox. I logged on and there was nothing there. I replied to the email and attempted to make contact through their website. I even stated I would go to PayPal if they didn’t resolve the issue. As if trying to piss me off they replied that they really did make the delivery (honest and truly?) and they were sorry I did not get it. (How would it be possible to not get it and still have it be completed is beyond me) but out of the kindness of their hearts they would send the 3000 gold I ordered again at no extra cost. Yup that wasn’t a typo, they said 3000. After 72 hours of waiting and being lied to (twice) about the delivery, they decided to extend a PR gesture to send me 1000 less gold than I paid for. Oh and in addition they did not say when it would be delivered. I’m currently still waiting…. again! I’m currently logged on the character they are supposed to deliver to and if they had any customer service skills I would have at least expected to see someone offering part of the delivery right away so I don’t go disputing them with PayPal. Short of an extensive appology, some extra gold or at the very least some form of cupon code for a future order, I will not be purchasing from this seller again.

  21. Stanley on 21 Jul 2010 at 11:18 pm #

    Yes, not only they are late sometimes as Kessel pointed out, (sometimes it tooks like 4 days) but I am getting very suspicious that they are trying to hack their customers, and phishing them so they could hack their customers. (For example, after few ‘guild drama’ happened I moved to other realm with my old-gulidies, created a pally there – used to be a rouge – and never bought a gold under that name, except pig, and then this poor lowbie pally gets spammed as hell) Considering what got pig a gold medal and other site to be hated, I stronly believe that you should reconsider your medal.

  22. Julien on 09 Aug 2010 at 9:38 pm #

    ok put a order in just now, for 3k gold lets see if i get it and how long it takes.

  23. Jim on 20 Aug 2010 at 11:45 pm #

    Just put in an order of 3k. Will notify of result.

  24. Jim on 21 Aug 2010 at 3:45 am #

    Just got it :) worked good for me! Idk if I’ll ever do it again, but from what I’ve been reading, it sounds like these guys are on a small group or at least on some sort of time restraint. Therefore, if you order in small amounts, you’ll be more likely to get what you ordered and in a timely fashion.

  25. Me on 03 Sep 2010 at 7:39 pm #

    WHATEVER you do, BE CAREFUL. PayPal will not dispute virtual goods, and you’ll be screwed.

  26. Carrie on 07 Sep 2010 at 2:21 pm #

    Well I just ordered and they called and asked a WHOLE series of questions like age, first 6 numbers of my credit card used, date of birth, level of character, etc. Was very odd and FYI was for sure a Chinese person on the other end talking. NOT someone familiar with English. Now, Im not retarded so I created a whole account that was separate with a level one alt and a TOTALLY different Battle.net account login and info so that even if I get caught or they hack me they will be quite surprised to find NOTHING. Will use this mule to get gold from some of the other sites and let you know what I think. This one does smell a little stinky to me right now.

  27. Carrie on 11 Sep 2010 at 6:07 pm #

    Ok now for the feedback- I did get my order of 15,000 from the PIG, HOWEVER it took them 3 days vs. Susan Express that delivered 6,000 in a few hours and IGE that delivered within 24 hours. SO tbh I would go with one of those others before I’d ever go back to the PIG

  28. LOLSTUPIDMUKKI on 01 Dec 2010 at 5:54 pm #

    LOL @ MUKKI…IT TOOK THREE HOURS FOR THEM TO DELIVER YOUR GOLD, but you logged on exactly one hour after you posted ur comment, saying in the first one that you JUST ORDERED……. i smell an agent in here

  29. Extreme Gold Fan on 01 Dec 2010 at 9:14 pm #

    @LOLSTUPIDMUKKI Not really. He could have just found this post two hours after buying. “Just bought” can be relative. Like when your wife catches you playing two hours in you say “I just started playing, hon.” See what I did there?

  30. NeedMoreGold on 15 Dec 2010 at 10:43 am #

    tried top site but was given a stupid reply that they cant find my order information even tho the only way i could contact them is by entering order information sent by them

  31. Extreme Gold Fan on 15 Dec 2010 at 9:05 pm #

    Probably some mix-up. They may get overboard with those pig jokes, bu I’ve always found them to be competent and one of the cheapest.

  32. Myst on 05 Jun 2011 at 10:33 pm #

    Their medal status needs to be revoked. I have been waiting for a week now for my two orders with them and not a single gold piece has arrived. I cannot even get an ETA from their staff, just excuses about supply. They might of been a good dealer a year or so ago but are terrible in both delivery time and customer service now.

  33. Sojuduck on 03 Sep 2011 at 8:09 pm #

    I purchased from these guys based 100% on the comments from this site as I had never heard of them before. I came here to look up another site that was offering much cheaper prices but went against it also because of comments I read here. I play on a very busy server. I tried IGE first and thumbs up that they said up front there was no stock available – they didn’t give me an option to put in an order without stock though. I tried this site next and spoke to a CSR who was a bit slow to respond but otherwise answered me in perfect English. He said there was no stock but if I ordered they would get some to me as soon as possible (no guarantee of when). This was the most expensive site I looked at. I put in an order for 20k (+ 2k extra from using a coupon code on their front page). I said it was ok to mail me and expected it to take a week or so. I went to bed and woke up and it had all been delivered in a couple of subtle mails (sent in odd amounts with items attached). I am really pleased with this service. Sorry to read some people are having issues but I can’t recommend these guys high enough. I think it’s worth paying extra for peace of mind but the prices on other sites are tempting. I wanted 30k but couldn’t afford it, however 22k in my pocket is better than being scammed – or risking getting banned, which I’m still worried about.

  34. Sojuduck on 04 Sep 2011 at 4:27 am #

    I wrote a longish review of my experience but it didn’t post so here is a summary. Most expensive place I’ve tried. I chose them from comments here and because they told me up front they were out of stock. Placed a large order (less than I wanted to because $), went to bed and it was ready for me in the morning. No new dodgy emails in my spam folder either. Will use again.

  35. Extreme Gold Fan on 06 Sep 2011 at 5:44 am #

    @Sojuduck No worries with the double post. It’s just that for new posters, I need to pre-approve it since I get thousands of spam on each post. Good to hear the Pig still has the chops, pun intended.

  36. Sojuduck on 11 Sep 2011 at 1:09 am #

    Actually… delete my last post. I just figured out what happened and it’s not related to the site. What a relief and apologies to the Pig! I would still purchase from them again.
