It's not always about making millions though. When ToA expansion came out for DAoC and enough people complained about it ruining the game, guess what. Mythic Entertainment didn't go, "F*ck You!" did they? Nope, they made a classic server and the fans were happy! Blizzard doesn't need millions from a vanilla server. What they need right now is to not look like a bunch of greedy billionaire a-holes.TheScavenger said:If blizzard saw that a classic server was worth the time and investment, they'd have done it by now. They don't go "ah yeah that classic server would make us millions! But lets not bother making it"...
...no, they more go "well a lot of people are playing these classic WoW servers, but we are pretty sure most people wouldn't pay for it and it wouldn't be worth the investment and resources to put into it"
Subscriptions? Actually, F2P + Cash Shop + Loot Crates + Any PvP Competitive Environment = Blatant Greed AND Zero Balance. Unless of course it's strictly cosmetics, which 95% of PvP focused cash shop games fail to adhere to.Torval said:Better question is how will that cost be passed on and in what way if there aren't loot crates.Scot said:Rhoklaw said:Completely disagree with the article, sorry. Please don't compare Battlefield's P2W format with Battlefront's RNG loot boxes. Neither are good, but Battlefield's approach would definitely be the lesser of 2 evils.
Yes, I noticed the "even BF" argument and thought that argument grasped at straws to make loot boxes sound not so bad. But yhe game altering items there are in BF, are as always only the start. Will we see loot boxes in BF by 2018? No. Will we see loot boxes in BF by 2020? The direction gaming is heading in I really could not say.
