  • Activision Granted Patent that Pairs Players to Increase Microtransaction Purchases - General News

    Why does it matter if a game has microtransactions or not? Is the game good? Then why punish yourself from playing a good game? I play Destiny 2 on console and its amazing and a ton of fun...I'm not gonna self harm myself by not playing it just because of some loot boxes or whatever. I'm gonna buy Star Wars Battlefront 2, because I love star wars and its looking to be another great game.

    Too many people rage against microtransactions and DLC...and the vast majority of time they'd have no effect on the persons game.

    Oh well, I hope those people leave the gaming genre so people who actually LIKE games can enjoy games without a bunch of whiners complaining about them.

    Come on .... 140? That's 1/4th the price of a brand new console. The insanity needs to stop.
    That seems to be the price breakdown for DBG published games, or at least several of their MMOs. This is the same breakdown that DDO and LotRO have been priced at. I don't think it's a coincidence.

    Does EQ, DCUO, and any other full MMO they publish use the same price structure?
    WoW has actually really expensive collector editions too for what you get out of it. Maybe the boxed version is better, but the digital version (while 99.99 USD), so a bit VERY lacking compared to the rewards LOTRO and Daybreak provide with their collectors. Definitely get what you pay for.

    With that said, both kinda lack a lot compared to the price. I haven't seen a single Collector Edition for any MMO actually be worthwhile. Though I dunno how ESO handled theirs.
  • Elysium 'Private Server' Shuts Down Temporarily Due to Financial Shenanigans - World of Warcraft - M

    There is no difference between free servers (when the original servers are still up and running) and pirating. Both are stealing revenue from the developers. 

    The only time private servers are good is if an MMO has been shut down. Otherwise its a bunch of freeloaders.

    I wonder how many people here in this thread would be for stealing EVE Online servers and hosting FREE Eve Online servers for everyone to play without paying for the game? 

    Same thing as stealing WoW servers.  
  • Elysium 'Private Server' Shuts Down Temporarily Due to Financial Shenanigans - World of Warcraft - M

    Good, now the freeloaders can pay for a WoW sub like everyone else. The only reason they were playing this server was because it was free (with a cash shop I guess). No more stealing from Blizzard, and if they still don't want to pay for WoW (which you can play for free anyway by grinding gold)...well plenty of other free MMOs.
  • Star Citizen 3.0 - Refusing Refunds

    If they refuse a refund, get a direct refund from the bank. Problem solved. That is what I did. If they refunded it themselves, it would have been cheaper for them. Instead I imagine the bank charged them extra that they otherwise wouldn't have needed to pay. Jokes on them.
