Really? I think the 100+ private still active and those that have been running for several years, while making money of it would say otherwise.SpottyGekko said:And gets harder when you mess with things like IP theft....Horusra said:jpedrote52 said:God damn it I just wanted to play TBC a fucking 10 year old expansion that blizzard no longer provides, on a well scripted server, ffs.
This disabled developer worked 4 year non stop to create a non profit server (you couldn't even find a donation link or paypal account on their site....) for the TBC fans and gets shutdown on the first few hours.
Life is hard.
Yeah they would, but it's wouldn't be loss for them, which i think he was trying to say. It isn't vital part for them to make a profit.TaishiFox said:If they took away the "cash shop" or whatever method they are using for this ploy then of course they lose money and they're not going to just change that for a bunch of whiners. And of course you didn't read on cus ya too damn ignorant.Iselin said:I stopped reading at "lose money" lol. Good one, bud.
Is it really different than an MMO releasing its first update 2-3 months after launch? Since there's no sub or other microtransactions, it seems fair to ask for some compensation.
This is what pisses me off so much with the current crop of publishers. This isn't content that's been developed after release. You don't get an expansion done in 2 months. Obviously this content was either finished or close to complete when the game launched but deliberately withheld so they could squeeze some more cash from the playerbase.
Think that's the overall point Jim makes. The other point he makes as well is that people say "its just cosmetic" or some say "I don't care", but If we to put these people in a situation where you have 0 customization over your characters, your unable to switch genders or you have fixed Armour through out the entire game regardless of what you got equipped, people will kick up a fuss.Gorwe said:Cosmetics are content for some. Just because you don't care about, doesn't mean it's irrelevant. Don't be so smallminded.
The video is more directed at B2P games, like BF2 or Destiny. Games you've already dropped 60 - 100 on already. Jim hasn't talked much about mmos and tends to me more lenient when it comes to F2PYou can't really blame the developers when customers complain about a 15$/month subscription but jubilate about a "free" game where they then spend hundreds of $ for micro transactions.
Unfortunately everyone (even those who don't belong to the "I want everything for free" faction) is affected because micro transactions and cash shops of course do change gameplay. But yeah, it is what it is and it will only become worse from here.
