  • All you MMO newbs were warned about F2P. Yet you supported it.

    meanwhile there are p2p games with p2w cash shops, p2w isn't a exclusive to f2p games.
    And there are B2P games that have p2w cash shops that make some F2P cash shops look positively benevolent.
    The problem is that the cash shops with P2W features has become more acceptable, but no matter how much we blame the publishers/developers the real culprits are those who buy such items in the first place, its just supply meeting demand, so no matter how egregious such things become, the only way it is going to stop, is when people stop giving them money to encourage it.

    I'm not sure what game you're playing. ESO has a perfectly servicable tutorial that pretty much explains everything you need to know.

    You get weapons in all the usual places: quests, chests, crafting, dungeons and so on.

    It's hardly rocket science.

    I'm talking about Bleakrock, not CH.

    I guess I won't like ESO. I prefer very guided games, not "open world crap".
    ESO has one of the best starter experiences of most MMO's out... I mean the quests basically tell you where to go and also on your map and compass, indicate where to go.  Highlight a quest and check your map and compass.  Itll tell you where to go.  The quest system/story in ESO is one of its many great qualities. 

    It's nothing compared to SWTOR and / or TSW(or LoTR:O for that matter) in this aspect. So best be careful what you mention. ;)
    I agree with him and I've played all those games too. Maybe you missed something in the game's user interface ?
    Entirely probable, its very easy to miss things in ESO and you can easily go 'astray' so to speak, though with them changing mobs etc. to level appropriate to the character your playing, this is probably less of a problem than it used to be. While i don't know about TSW as i barely played it, SW:TOR certainly has a more 'player friendly' starter experience, a bit too 'friendly' perhaps if anything, ESO doesn't really coddle players in that regard so you can easily lose track of what your doing even, if you are a new player.
  • Start Your Engines, PCers! BattleNet Updated for Preloading D2 - Destiny 2 -

    Looks like they are going to release the game piecemeal again, just as they did with Destiny 1, think i'll wait until after a few DLC's are released to 'bulk up' the games content before buying it myself. Destiny 2 currently isn't good VFM, its definitely a wait before buying situation. :/
  • Star Wars Battlefront II or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and the Love the Loot Box - Michael Bitt

    in This game, if you buy enough loot boxes and upgrade Darth Vader enough etc. then you can pretty much play that character throughout the game, as nobody will be able to kill you and you will pretty much dominate those you engage with, sweet system if your into buying your way to victory. :p

    I don't like RNG costumes and heroes. If I can't just buy what I want I'm going to be bummed. It's kind of a deal breaker because with this kind of game I just want to play the thing that draws me in. Plus in an ARPG the mobs are the freaking loot crates. That's why you pop them to get the sweet loot.

    Fortunately I have a few heroes I really like unlocked with costumes I like so if that doesn't get screwed up then I'm find for a while. 

    The loot and gear changes I'm okay with too for the same reasons Mike listed in the article. Compared to all my other ARPGs this has the most boring loot. I'm looking forward to see how it improves.

    I hope it all works out for the better. I'd hate to lose my only superhero ARPG.
    So you can't just directly buy your hero of choice on consoles?  If I'm understanding correctly, they drop in loot boxes?  If that's the case, I don't think I would even bother with that version.
    Unfortunately Marvel needs money, their comics are not selling and they have a number of issues in that regard, so expect more loot boxes etc. its all about the money.
