Whats the fun of playing MMO's and then at level 1 buying all the cool looking cosmetic stuffs and mounts from the ingame webstore?
Yesterday EQ went Free to Play on the new fresh Vox server., and after a few hours all low level characters where decked out with pure awesomeness from the store, maybe i am getting old, but what happened to the fun of starting to look better and cooler the higher in level you looked?
And its not only SOE, people are so spoiled that they start buying stuff from ingame webstores the minute they arive in the game.... but then this might actually be an indication of the number of people buying ingame gold from goldsellers. There is a hugereal life money market for ingame stuff, sadly it feels like another nail on the true MMO spirits coffin...
(not that i did not have fun in EQ, because it showed me how important downtime between fights is for the socialising aspect of MMO's)
