How sore and dry are your nipples? I'm curious to see how much milk is Gregg milking off the playerbase right now.

 

You bought Guild Wars 2, but so far you have not spent a dime on its cash shop and do not intent/plan to in near future, you

choose 7th option BF only. Those who already bought GW2 or other MMORPG and spent $ in the cash shop choose 6th option, BF+CS

 

Those who are not playing anything at the moment, choose the last MMORPG and the way you were being milked by it.

Example: You used to play WOW, but never bought anything from store so choose the 2nd option.

 

 So in what way Gregg is milking you atm or in other words how did you choose to access your current MMORPG?

 

Legend:

BF/EXP - Box fee and Expansion fee (milk required to access the game current and future content)

P2P - Pay to Play (Monthly fee, milk required to keep playing the game)

Cash shop - (Milk to access items ingame + other services like name/server/faction change, etc)

 

P.S: This is the ultimate poll that will show the future of where the genre is headed in near future :)

    This poll is to show in what way you are being milked atm from your current/last MMORPG.

    Is it box fee only or box fee + cash shop? :)

    Wrong, I said if you're paying more than $50 yearly on a MMORPG Gregg is surely happy :)

    And wrong again, reality is that MMORPG's out there that people play for far cheaper it doesn't mean they are of lower quality. Why should I pay 3-5x more on a MMORPG that I would enjoy less? Higher cost doesn't mean lower quality. REALITY.

    Because you may be enjoying the game and want to support those who make it? How far do you think your $50 a year goes for the cost of making and paying devs? How about future content?

    Holy Cow! The "Give it to me free!" mentality is strong in this one.

    PS: Nobody is milking me. If I enjoy a game, I spend money on it to support it. Stupid poll.

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    TERA is milking me by being P2P, oh wait, other people pay for my subscription for me because I buy their chronoscrolls from the AH, so my spending on my current MMO is $0.

     

    I also payed a friend in TERA gold to buy me GW2 and an old friend of mine bought me all the WoW expansions. 

     

    MMOs don't milk me. lol.

    If you think you are supporting a game by spending more $ on it, you surely are lying to yourself. Ask yourself why is WOW going downfall despite the massive $ they milked over the decade?

    If I want to support a game that I like I would be supporting it by playing it, thats enough. If it can manage to take $ off me for delivering what I want then I would pay for it. I am not going to donate as much $ I can out of pity for its tight and low budget. That tactic been overused over the years and I see apparently still works on players like you for milking.

    In recent times we've seen the genre go forward, especially 2012 by how competitive MMORPG's are now and how harder they try to steal the market. This is best for us the playerbase, since we are finally starting to get far better quality for our milk. WOW was great experience for a lot out there and surely its not declining because of lack of milk.

    I beat you over the head with this last time bub wow is on the decline because theres only so many times you can play the same style of game before you don't want to anymore. The game has to eventually die and the devs have been moved over to the next game.

    This poll fails because there is no "I'm not getting milked" option.

    WOW didn't die because of its style, it died because the style remained the same. With what Blizzard milked out of WOW if they invested half back into its development they could've made WOW to be WOW+SWG+GW2 all in one today.

    WOW has 200+ servers, 90%+ of those are medium to empty, yet no server merges.

    GW2, nothing in the cashshop (but bought gems for gold). At the moment I have more time than money (2 years ago it was the other way around) since I went back to school to add some more education.

    I am not a cashshop fan anyways, I dont think I ever put money in a cashshop and I know for 100% certain that I havnt bought any gold ever.

    Give me a break. Dont fool yourself. Come on.

    The quality is mostly in the choice and value. By the pool so far thu only 23-30% max are spending their $ wisely. In 2012 you'll have the opportunity to access more high budget MMORPG's for free than ever before so surely genre is going forward. Companies becoming more realistic with their demand for what they deliver and thats good for the playerbase.
