I'm hoping this game has a major, grandiose cash shop.

    I agree there is such thing as money grabs in gaming. I just don't think a cash shop is indicative of that.

    I thought the player content would be sold by the players to the community, then I realized it's basically the community selling SOE products for SOE lol. :)

     

    That's what rekindled my faith in mankind.

    No, it's more like the community selling their own products for SoE.

    Remember when we used to actually joke about our MMOs being like part time jobs?

    Well................

    Well, same difference. Now they're working for free. I mean it's poetic justice. They want free stuff, now they having to develop for SOE for free. :)

     

    You see how picture perfect that is?

    Actually it is they pay SOE to get cash shop items to build stuff then sell items back to others to use while most of the profits go to SOE.

    I've read that all of the profits go to SOE as you have no wallet, you only make the purchases from SOE. (Real money.)

    I'm sure you can spend hundreds of dollars building some elegant Villa in Qeynos. Can't afford it? Don't want to spend the money? Then don't.

    I have yet to encounter this f2p model that requires vast sums of money to "stay competitive," that these threads reference. Its almost always a bunch of aesthetic stuff for the enthusiasts with money. This allows one guy to pay what would normally take a dozen of subscriptions, which benefits the freeloaders. This is apparent to anyone that understands the link between the profit of the game and the investment it receives.

    Ahh... An argument from incredulity.

    God forbid that Blizzard should charge a transaction fee for completed transactions used by players to make money they never would have made without the in-game tools Blizzard created for them.

     

    Greedy!!

    I want this game to be the final rift between F2P's giving of free features and F2P's pay to win business strategy.

     

    I want them to put so much in the cash shop you can spend until your hearts content all the while ensuring you can't hit max level or gear without cash shop or some payment. We don't want freeloaders in/around this game so they can hop along like the rabbits they are.

     

    I want this game to say from the beginning they are F2P (so far so good) and with that don't cater to the masses who have empty purses and wallets. Don't give us freebies. Don't give away nothing. Make us earn something, work for it. I'm tired of seeing everyone around me want free crap and free this and free that.

     

    Give us a sense of worth by smashing those "freeloaders" as we call it. Seriously, this game can do it since so many are looking to it as a free "end all" game for those with little to no cash.

     

    Do this, and you'll have money coming from all angles. Everyone will support you.

     

    DON'T CATER TO THE WEAK.

    But on a serious note, I agree.

    I hope there is a lot of "fluff" or whatever that will make me want to buy it...

     

    I have had Station Access active for a long time (tho I haven't really played in a long time) so between that and a few expansions I have like 15,000 SC and nothing I'd want to spend it on.

     And yet... you total misapply this one. When did I say "it doesn't exit" or "it never will exist?" Furthermore, do you have any evidence to suspect that EQN will be different than the host of other cash shop games ran by SoE? I have no reason to believe it will be pay to play. This is why I'm skeptical of baseless suggestions otherwise.

    Yea, most people thought trying to coerce people into buying $250 items to play "inferno mode" was pretty greedy.

    Honestly, I quit d3 because it was boring (Made over 1.5k doing it actually). I don't particularly like the genre.

    Nevertheless, if you don't think people like Kotick are bad for the industry, IDK what to tell you.

    Well OP you just covered two no brainers,NOBODY likes free loaders but you also miss another important point,nobody SHOULD like getting ripped off either.

    We are still miles from release anyhow,so anything is just speculation.We will let SOE decide their own fate.

    Im surprised it took em this long to figure out where the real money was at...

    Early on I was making cash selling characters til gold farming got organized

    I kept telling them the money isn't subs its more in the gold/characters/items being auctioned off online and couldn't fathom why they didn't just put up what players call a cash shop these days

    I even found myself buying gold from time to time whilst playing World of Warcraft as there was so much competition you could get your hands on 1000s of gold for cheap

    Remember a player thanking a publisher/developer for creating and releasing a game because he paid for his entire education, bought a house and a car and had no debt because of all the money he made selling virtual gold, items, characters

    Do freeloaders even exist anymore?

    This game could have the biggest most grandiose cash shop imaginable yet it isnt going to keep dedicated, hard working players excluded because they choose to be frugal, as that isn't smart, at all

    This is capitalism at its finest...include them all...section them out accordingly...virtual representation of what many simply accept as reality

    However captialism only works well in a flourishing open market...something is changing and so are the games....makes one wonder wasup
