    Desperate for money? Sounds like a loot box to me. Why are we covering loot boxes?

    Pretty much....advertising lootboxes, seriously? Acting like they are free or something (500 zen each box). Then again, Archeage got advertisement as well when their new lootboxes came in....

    It’s a loot box for a mount in a game I’m pretty sure you don’t even play. So why do you care? If someone wants to buy a loot box that’s their decision lol

    He's obviously not saying it just because its lootboxes. He's wondering why the site feels a sale on lootboxes is news worthy on here.

    They should post the odds of the legendary dropping like they do in lotteries.

    Unregulated loot box gambling mechanics running amok, but people still give-in to them otherwise there'd be something else for better or worse.

    Knowing the previous relationship between Critical Hit PR and this site anyone would be surprised by sponsored content because ????

    Kinda feels like they're testing this out for the Magic MMO.

    Would be even worse (and louder) if they knew...
    Insignias = slotted stat bonuses (power, crit, defense, etc.) which come in different colours, the higher the better. Insignia box ($4 a piece) drops 3 of them, in random quality, and I believe the only source for the legendary. In the game you can get a ton of greens and blues, sometimes purple too but that's rare.
    Cue in the p2w choir :D 


    And yep, it's a bit concerning to see the in-game sale news lately, LotRO's weekly sale covers an another example.

    What do you expect from P2W Entertainment?

    Brenics ~ Just to point out I do believe Chris Roberts is going down as the man who cheated backers and took down crowdfunding for gaming.

    And people are excited for Torchlight Frontiers forgetting that Perfect World is the publisher.

    Nothing new for PWE though. Their monetization has always been sleazy.

    Yep, nothing new, that's why it's odd to see this on the news list...

    It ain't about my events addiction within the news, don't get me wrong, and they usually cover those too (at least the start of it in Neverwinter, and in CO when the 3rd week has started), it's about the trend.
    Just for example, of the last 3 notes in Neverwinter they've covered two.
    -A paid box drops a mount for a short time (only affects those who spend real money), and
    -some packs return to the in-game store for a short time (only affects those who spend real money).

    The third one, which affects by far the most players (catch-up event, double xp on everything for faster leveling), wasn't good/interesting enough for a news piece apparently.

    ed. the last one could peak the interest for absent players to log in, while the other two are basically advertisements...
