    They also announced that instead of being able to purchase specific heroes from the cash shop, we will now have to purchase gambling tokens that award you with random heroes. So to play the characters you actually want in this game, you may have to buy a ton of tokens and hope to get lucky with the results. 

     

    Lame.

    Agreed. Especially with pvp. Even from the characters they have let us test there are sooo many balance problems.

  • pvp in this game is a bad idea.. with pvp all there going to do is start nerfing and buffing characters from now on....  If they made pvp where it is separate from pve then it would be fine but with alot of games all they do is nearf because something is strong in pvp but not in pve and then they go back and buff it again at a later patch......

    Lottery tokens are bad.  If you plan on playing, best to buy a $20 starter pack and get the hero you want now.  Once it goes live, you wont be able to, it is all lotto driven.

    There's no PVP in beta less than 2 months before launch and we are supposed to believe there will be PVP worth playing at launch??

     

    Buying heroes in the cash-shop will be a lotto too?? Can someone link a post about that?

     

    This game went downhill fast for me.

    I love Marvel but I am going to pass this one, if I wanted to play Diablo like game I would play D3 or PoE!

    "you are like the world revenge on sarcasm, you know that?"

    One of those great lines from The Secret World

    Well it is certainly not a MMO as you cannot create your own avatar, you must use theirs.

    Do you even know what MMO stands for?

    He probably doesn't. He might even be confusing it with RPG, but even then it could still be that too.

    It is actually much worse than this.  You are more likely to get hero drops for heroes you already own, than for a new hero to drop.  So if you own Iron Man, you might get several Iron Man drops and no Thor or Spider-Man.  

     

    Let's hope we can still buy heroes we want, especially as more are added in.
