This guys hasn't even released the game, are charging 40-50$ for the game and still, you see a cash shop with a huge P2W potential.
People were crying about the EA's BF2 loot boxes and yet, we see a ... 7000$ "palace" in this game.
Well deserved I guess. As long as some players want that ..."palace" , we will all see this kind of games popping up ..and in the end , nothing will change.
STOP GIVING MONEY TO SHITTY COMPANIES !!
I don't even know much about this game or the ... "items' they sell in the shop , but any company which adds items with a price tag of say 7k $ , it will always end up in the P2W category.
You cannot sell things for 7k$ which will not give the player any advantages. Period.
You are one of the most positive people on these forums imo, and if you put your mind to it I am sure you could list a lot more positives about other mmos in development using the conditions you stated.Slapshot1188 said:I'm probably not the best person for that (even though I backed both) I feel they both deserve much of the criticism they get. That said... each of those has actually had players inside for years (at least a year) where progress is able to be seen.YashaX said:@Slapshot1188 OK Slap, so here is a challenge for you. Using the same conditions as your OP states, can you list positives for a different "indie" mmo that is also in development (eg: Crowfall, CU, etc)?
If you want to see what Crowfall looks like you can just watch a current video since there is no NDA. CoE has a progress video that reuses the progress video footage from the prior year...
I also have participated in tests with CU where thousands of characters were on the screen simultaneously. CU also has a refund policy (not sure about Crowfall)
In general though... I think they all deserve their lumps for the development delays. Some people think that saying "At least we aren't as bad as that other guy" is a legitimate defense. I'm not one of those people.
Daranar said:Well seeing as I am American, I believe the free market regulates itself better than a bunch of elitist snobs. That's what my preceding generations fought for and what I will continue to fight for. Some of us have ancestors who fought and died to not have every aspect of our lives controlled by an overreaching government. That sometimes comes with drawbacks when big companies act like morons, but that's the price of freedom. Ultimate freedom has this catch to it...other people are free to do business as they please too. Americans keep forgetting it's not just you that has freedom, it's everyone, and with freedom comes conflict. But oh is it worth it. The market will regulate itself, it always does, but there may be growing pains.MrMelGibson said:Yes, they have tried this shit before. But Net Neutrality was what kept it in check.zymurgeist said:Kiwiflava said:Today is the day (12/14)
This is a short clip with few words on exactly why every gamer should be fighting to preserve net neutrality. In a nut shell, without it you will see major monopoly on data caps and internet speed effecting everything we do because of games including email, social, media, research, communication.
Good luck all and thank you everyone who has taken the time.
Because we had throttling in 2015 before the regulations were passed, illegally, by Mr. phone and pen. Oh wait.....
Most of you aren't old enough to remember when there were data caps on internet and we paid by the minute. Then competition came to the market, without government interference, and all that went away. The few times companies have tried it since then they have gotten pummeled by the free market.
You can keep living in fantasy land where you think the free market will regulate itself.
The point is that people (parents) need to understand that games are no longer just the one off purchase that they used to be, but now also push players to spend more and more on microtransactions.DMKano said:Not sure what the point of the article is - there are millions of people who are terrible at managing money and have addiction issues.
A 19 year old spends $13,000 on
booze, strippers, drugs
electronics, pimping out his car, guns, MTG cards etc, Justin Bieber autographed crap....
I mean you can waste money on just about anything, and in every case its the person who is the problem
I mean people pissing away money on stuff they shouldnt is newsworthy?
