I just got done watching the developer walk through for the game, and i must say im impressed. Alot of solid combat and WAR-like PvP and questing.
But honestly, you cant expect people to pay 15 dollars a month and then have Micro-Transactions. If this had been an MMO maybe 3-4 years ago that would have floated, but everyone knows what MT are now adays. Ive never once seen a nessecary reason to have MT's in a game that has a sub fee. It always translates to "We want to make more cash, so we are going to keep this content from release and make you pay for it later."
It started with Battlefield Bad Company, it continued through to games like Champions and others, and at this point its just gotten sad and in my opinion is just a bad business practice. You cant expect an honest review or trial attempt by a customer if your going to be sneaking in extra charges after the core game. Its like going into a restraunt like sweet tomatoes, paying the 7 bucks for the buffet and then realizing that to get ketchup you have to pay an extra buck.
Business's in the real world would never stay afloat like that, you would have alot of angry customers and you would constantly find yourself bombarded in person with people wanting their money back.
Thats a "Luxury" of selling an online game, the people complaining are only words on a screen. How many times did you see SWG vets at SOE's doorsteps? Or STO lifers banging at Jack Emmert's front door? You dont because most people dont have the time or the will to take such a thing so far. So then whats the best way to stop this behavior from developers? Dont buy the game.
If the DCO dev's want to see my money they will have to get rid of the sub fee or the MT's, because i wont be playing a game that has both.
