Offering a game as a free experience with the option to use a cash shop is one thing.
Having people spend hundreds on the shop only to screw them with subscriber only features is the worst thing a mmo developer could do.
I don't know how these guys sleep at night...
THankfully I have a game like LoL that offers a free experience with the option to make my gaming less of a grind or buy skins to increase my overall enjoyment. I've spent atleast 60 bucks in LoLs CS because I dont fell forced to use it.
Before I left Lotro everything was great, I was unlocking content by playing the game and occasionally I would sink cash into the CS to unlock classes or zones if i got lazy. It felt completely natural to do this and i was supporting the game. Until I wanted to pvp or fast travel and found out it was subscriber only.
Lotro isnt the only one that does this BS. And people wonder why F2p games get so much hate on community forums.
