    As much as I love PoE, saying that they ONLY sell cosmetics is dishonest. . .


    Stash tabs are definitely NOT cosmetics. . .

    there goes a cry baby who keep crying about "stash", stash isnt needed in poe, and if u feel like u need, buy it one time. There are many more ways to have more inventory, so it basically under "cosmetics" since it wont effect the game.

    Doesn´t make them cosmetic. I did play one char (bragging-alert) to lvl 95 in the solo selffound challenge with no aditional stash tabs, but I could only do that because I knew the game extremely well at that point. You can play the game for many hours before the four free stash tabs fill up, so when you "have to" buy them you know what you are buying. Still doesn´t make them cosmetics though.

    Stash tabs are REQUIRED. Try and hit 90+ with only 4 tabs. You wont be able to loot a single item. There's a reason the console version will come with 100 tabs.

    """"""Micro""""""transactions

    " I think that other companies are scared that they won't make enough money if they switch to just sales of cosmetics."

    Yeah, companies are probably scared that people won't buy their 30-40USD armor skins.


    stash isnt needed in poe


    Cool story bro.

    I'll also say. Stash Tabs are NOT needed. I have several lvl 95+ characters and have never bought a single stash tab. I also play in the new leagues regularly attaining lvl 90+. Stating that it is required is the biggest joke I've ever heard. Especially in a SSF league. Why would you need to keep everything? You aren't going to be selling any of it to anyone. Vendor it out and keep the best of the best. It's not like you need 12 sets of gear. And if you really have to have that extra space. Create a mule character/account.

    Do you not realize the name of the company is Grinding Gear Games which is normally shortened to GGG ?

    ok here you guys cry about few tenner investment when other games try to forcepull thousands of dollars from your pocket... GG boys learn to aim the gun at the real bestards - GGG knows its stuff and is honest: from gamers to gamers.

    if you dont like it - and you still want to bytch it here - > Make more accounts and transfer stuff between them. 

    SSF is for more experienced players like GGG and Chris has sayd... You are not supposed to start there. If you get some knowledge - you know what gear to save up ;)

    in the age of entitlement, if you have an idea then you are right. people can't fathom that things shouldn't change just because they have a little whine. Meanwhile thousands of people don't care about the whining on forums and are enjoying the game (without spending money)

    You get to play the game for free without any content limit. Buy yet people complain about stash, fuking idiots. There is no game that does this without implementing heavy p2w stuff.
  • fulger_xfulger_x Member UncommonPosts: 5
    Stop whining, the game content is completely FREE, every patch, every expansion has been free. Soooo much free content over the last year for example. They almost give too much IMO.
  • TorvalTorval Member LegendaryPosts: 20,631
    No one was complaining about spending money. Man what a toxic community. Someone pointed out that stash tabs aren't cosmetic and the game doesn't make money "just on cosmetics", then all the whiteknights got their panties in a twist.

    Storage isn't cosmetic period. Whether it's necessary is subjective, just like fun.

    all you need to do is make mules for free stash tabs. GGG allows you to run 1 additional client

    while it is true that expanding inventory space is not cosmetic, it is very normal and accepted in F2P mmos.

    It is OK to sell stash/inventory expansions, but some companies abuse this by extremely limiting your space to force you to buy. Others like to rent you the extra space to keep you paying over and over for the same extra space you already paid for. Others do both.

    I think(based on the last time i played) PoE has one of the most docile cash shops out there.

    I play PoE since launch, stash are not required. You can sell stuff, you know? 

    Not game problem if you are a hoarder. 

    That being said, they gave out stash in many events. So... yeah, I'm siding with the one calling you cry babies.

    For real you can't really say anything about the PoE guys their game rocks and they gave it to us for free. I dropped cash on tabs and a costume just to make sure I gave them something for the hours of enjoyment I had
  • CyrinCyrin Member UncommonPosts: 43
    I personally wont play anything that charges cash for quality of life improvements. Bigger inventory .. poe is out, eso is out. You might be able to accept it, I wont, and it happens to be my cash.

    You want a game for free and you cannot even pay for the inventory expansions. What kind of cheapskates are these that expect so much?
