My ignore list finally has one occupant after 12 years. I am the strongest supporter of free speech on here, but free speech does not mean forced listening. Have fun my friend. Hope you find a new stalking target.

    LOL, the real money to be made is in the micro transactions....the initial purchase price is just chump change.

    (Meaning only the chumps will pay for it, game will be F2P within a year.)

    Use your time machine to go back to 2016.  Make multiple accounts and sign up a bunch of times.

    Sounds good unless it's just going to be a f2p game anyways.

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    You get what you pay for - the game is worth $0

    Likely.  I never bothered with the Alpha...  but regardless, and I hate Amazon and think they are the Devil, but gotta call it like I see it and this was a classy move.

    Yep - opinions vary.

    I know a senior engine dev at Amazon who has been working on Lumberyard for a couple of years now - even he has not much hope for the New World lol.. but we'll see how it turns out.

    Maybe it's gonna be amazing - but I am not holding my breath.

    Assuming they can actually do the whole "1000 player" server thing consistently, I'd say its worth 30$. I'd rather give my money to Amazon vs the people behind Ark at the end of the day.

    Doubt it will go f2p now.

    Back in 2016 the "business vision" was - clearly - f2p and MTX. Going b2p suggests a change in vision. Why?  

    My guess: much greater scrutiny around MTX and a global drift towards legislation / financial limitations on spend.

    That said I wouldn't be at all surprised by:

    50% off sales etc.

    Yeah I'll agree. Chances were they were originally thinking of going with lootboxes until more regions started coming down on them hard thanks to EA....oh wait, they aren't loot boxes, my bad I forgot they are called "surprise mechanics" right EA?!?!?
