How should we react to the news about five more instances?
I’m a firm believer that they launched them later, not due to issues on the development, but that they are not a product of their recent expansion. This means that people who already payed for the expansion and are F2P will need to buy coins to get access to the instances. If you’re a VIP member this is not a problem though. But for F2P players who bought the expansion, will also need to pay further for the instances.
TBH I’m getting really fet up with the way Turbine try to lure their customers into a payment trap. The instances should have been in the expansion, instead of (IMO) delayed only for the purpose to make more money. I have no facts to backup this theory, but looking at the past and how Turbines market plan works, this could very well be the fact.
They are not out yet, so we do not know how many turbine coins it will cost to unlock. But a lot people already payed for a expansion which very well could be awarded for the biggest marketing scam ever, alongside the worst expansion in a MMO to date. I usually laugh when people call Blizzard money whores, as any company is. That’s how it works, you try to get a much cash from your customers as humanly possible, while you still try to maintain your moral towards your consumer. But this move from Turbine got me to agree with those who call companies money whores. Because that is what Turbine are now, don’t care about the story line anymore, don’t care about the player, only their wallets and how deep they goes. Turbine lost their moral towards their consumer.
Do you guys think I overreact to this, or do you believe there is a bit of truth to my assumption?
