  • Star Wars Battlefront II - Reddit Claims ALL Characters Can be Unlocked in 24-Hours* - MMORPG.com N



    I was looking at getting the game but after looking at the price .. and the fact that had I bought the Deluxe pack I would get advanced features, like do more damage and such ... how is this not Pay to win?
    I think I have just saved myself some money as I will not buy into a game that favours those who can throw more money at it, and then look at buying more DCL packs a few months later ... PASS



    Agreed. As soon as I saw that you unlock epic stuff if you buy the "deluxe" version, I was done. That's a micro-transaction before you even install the game!

    I am still very interested in the game because it's Star Wars and looks beautiful, but until I see a guarantee that there will be no MTs in the game, at least for like a year, I'm passing. Keep in mind they can still sell "expansions" with new maps, and will make plenty of money doing that. They don't need to ruin the game by making it all about who spent more money.

    We have MMOs for that kind of stuff, don't need it in Battlefield.

    One thing I am happy about is the community (at least reddit) collectively said "F U" to this kind of garbage, finally.

  • Behind the Scenes: Evolving the Game for eSports Viewing - Overwatch Videos - MMORPG.com

    All these changes seem really great. This was the biggest hurdle to translating the game for audiences- the viewing experience. Even as a player, it was sometimes hard to follow the action.

    It seems Blizzard is 100% behind making the Overwatch League a reality. And usually when they get behind something like that, it happens, and usually works.

  • Adding the ability to choose your religion in an MMO

    I think there's definitely room for using religion, especially in a sandbox game, since it's such a commonly fundamental human activity.  But I'd hope it would involve more than just things like guild bonuses.

  • Knights of the Frozen Throne to Launch August 10th - Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft - MMORPG.com

    Hearthstone is a true classic game, but I haven't felt the urge to play in awhile. I skipped the last adventure, and not having those cards made me not feel competitive. Then I thought- should I really be spending $20 whenever they feel like releasing an adventure to stay competitive? I know there are no adventures this year but that last adventure is still active, and I can't justify purchasing it.

    Maybe I've just played it out. I was totally addicted to this game for a year straight and had tons of fun playing it. But the adventure thing and the latest themes they've introduced felt very forced (like Quest Rogue).

    Maybe this next expansion will change my mind and I'll try it out again. Definitely a great game to play with your girlfriend, and a great game to watch on twitch and laugh at the absurdity of the RNG happening to someone else.
