    Please don't have lock boxes with cash shop keys.  That has runined every game they have been added to as developers spend more time making stuff for the boxes than doing anything else in game.

    If you don't want to deal with them, don't. If they have an auction house, then that would be a good source of money selling them to people who want them.

    Get rid of the Rocket Launchers, Plasma Launchers and pretty much anything that a player can use as a weapon that explodes. PvP consists of astronauts space jumping, spamming their explosive weapons against newbs without them. So besides the PvP the game is pretty fun.

    Damnit, Ford! I'm reading 5 bucks and I'm thinking: GOGOGOGOGOGO!

    Then I get to the site and see it's 59.99! "Nuuuuuuuuuu!".

    Just......damnit, Ford.

    Had the same feeling, the PvP held me from preordering.

    PvE part of the game looks pretty damn good imo.

    $100 for the deluxe version?  That seems high, really high.  It doesn't seem like they deliver on that $40 extra you spend either.  Still I'm glad they're going sub-free.  That is the smartest move they've made in the last 2 years.
  • XithrylXithryl Plantation, FLPosts: 256Member

    I am very confused about which copy to pre order, which is why I haven't yet. It does say Subscription free, however the physical copies, talk about a DLC Season pass, is that for consoles only? Do PC people have to dish out for a lot of DLC? Is there even an ultimate edition for PC? Gamestop seems to say so, however the Pre order page says for console pre order information click here, and brings up the physical versions.

    Just too many questions right now, I will have to hold off until its a bit more clear.

    Take a look at the $150 gamestop exclusive copy! LOL

    Of course its going to have a "sub based" DLC with it. Either that or it will rely on the lockboxes. They need to get your money somehow afterall.

    I did battle with ignorance today, and ignorance won.

    To exercise power costs effort and demands courage. That is why so many fail to assert rights to which they are perfectly entitled - because a right is a kind of power but they are too lazy or too cowardly to exercise it. The virtues which cloak these faults are called patience and forbearance.

    I played a bit of this beta weekend thought the game was so-so, didn't think it;d be worth as ub fee though, but now that I find out its buy 2 play I may pick it up. But yeah, they should ban rocket launchers and such from pvp, because in reality how are you going to beat someone who has a huge aoeing weapon of mass destruction. Honestly they are probally mostly used by players with no actual skill at the game, since explosive weapons have a huge error margin due to the explosion. I think they should change it so to do full damage you have to take the missle head on, damage decreases as the person hit is farther from the impact point. This would balance them somewhat. someone around the middle of its radius would only take about 30% of its damage while someone on the outer edge takes next to nothing since realisticlly it'd just be a air shockwave.

    Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

    A. Proven right (if something bad happens)

    or

    B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

    Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

    I'm looking forward to Defiance, and I am planning on buying it, but somehow the client won't run at all. So haven't had the chance to try it out yet.

    Honestly I dont think rocket launchers were that bad-well the one I got took 4 direct hits to kill a mob,but the sniper rifle was 1 shot headshot kill.

    This is even more money grubbing than NCSoft with Guild Wars 2.

    The game is goddamn boring; I feel bad for anyone who wastes money on it.  3 day beta weekend and I logged off within an hour.

    Nice to see something like Tabula Rasa try to come back again, but the game is just lacking in almost every way.  Doesn't help that it's being developed for consoles as well.

    B2P is not a good sign at all.

     

    Company is behind the p2p model, even so much so that a game that is performing modestly at best remains p2p.

    B2P is an admission they dont think the game warrants a sub.

     

    And before people scream GW2, Arenanet knew they would deal with heavy volume.  Im assuming Trion isnt stupid and knows their game will have niche appeal, so they have no shot at the volume of GW2.  Small target audience + b2P = where is the $ going to come from?

    They plan to have a DLC schedule though.. like Borderlands 2. GW2 and TSW don't release DLC.. yet.

    I personally think that anyone who likes Borderlands will probably get some joy from Defiance. If it gets a good chunk of that audience it should do pretty well.

    to be fair, I didnt consider the console angle.

    Console gamers will not go for p2p, so b2p could be more for them.

     

    Its a tricky spot.  Game isnt MMORPG enough to really appeal to that crowd, but its being associated with MMORPGs which may put off the Borderlands crowd.

     

    Its all speculation until it actually releases though, will be evry interesting to see how it does.

    Such a niave post.

     

    Get with the times buddy, Subscriptions are a dying breed, the reason Developers are switching to a B2P model is because they realise the revenue potential from selling cosmetic items and little goodies like lockboxes.

    And yes, you guessed it, I'm mentioning GW2 as a comparison (at least for myself) here. I'm sure I've spent more than $15 a month on GW2 in the last 4 months, hell just last month I spent over $70 for convience items, and its not because I'm stupid or lazy (okay maybe just a little) but it's because I have disposable income, and not being tied down with a sub fee, gives me the freedom to get what I want out of the game... Maybe its not always 'worth it' for the amount I pay, but It's giving me control of that choice to me.

    You claim subscriptions are a dying breed....( looks at WoW Rift EvE and other games being payed for by tons of people)......lul.  Honestly its come to the point where if a game is free or b2p its usually not worth your time, or wont keep you interested long enough to actual want to progress through constantly.  I thought GW2 would break that barrier, and it did to a slight extent, but in the end my theory stood correct.
