  • Allied Races will Require Battle for Azeroth Expansion Purchase - World of Warcraft - MMORPG.com

    I don't see what the news is. Haven't you always had to pay for the xpac to access the new races? I wasn't expecting anything less.

    And it just gets better. http://www.pcgamer.com/ea-tells-investors-turning-off-battlefront-2s-microtransactions-will-not-affect-earnings/ Were those initial earnings or projected future earnings? Makes a difference.

    If it's initial or launch day, then maybe it won't make a difference, but it will with future earnings. Either way, with all the bad press they are getting, this game won't realize it's full potential in earnings and EA has no one to blame but themselves.

    Really not sure I like MMORPG promoting this p2w garbage. P2W in F2P or B2P games ok I guess, but in full priced AAA games? Nope.




    what exactly about the game is pay2win now that the microtransaction system has been removed?


    also isn't the game buy2play? you're ok with pay2win in buy2play games. . .just not this one for some reason?



    your post is really confusing, please clarify






    This game is no more P2W than Pokemon or Magic The Gathering or Hearthstone.



    I couldn't tell you as I don't play those games, but those game aren't attached to a Iconic brand like Star Wars is. Disney owns SW and when people think of Disney, most think of kids and family fun. When a game tied to SW comes out and utilizes a method to make money that many associate with gambling and starts having articles show up in The washing Post, CNN, and other media, it's treated differently.

    Regardless on how good the game is or isn't, EA went to far with a franchise that too well known and they did for no other reason than the bottom line as they always do. There are other less intrusive ways to milk it sheep, I mean players and still get money.

  • Star Wars Battlefront II AMA Happening Today - 'This is Fine' - MMORPG.com News

    There are some good hard questions over their and they are mostly going unanswered. This isn't going to end well for EA/Dice. They even managed to make Wall Street take a look..https://www.cnbc.com/2017/11/15/wall-street-is-getting-worried-social-media-outrage-over-eas-star-wars-game-may-hurt-sales.html

    Albion online all around pretty much sucks!  The game claims to be a sandbox type game but yet they force the same people that want to craft and do gathering into PVP zones in order to be able to gather those materials.  What the clueless developers of Albion Online don't seem to understand is that not everyone wants to PVP and some of us are just happy gathering and crafting. 

    If it was a true sandbox game then the players  should not be forced into PVP and
    all materials from tier 1 to tier 8 should be able to be gathered outside of PVP
    zones and they should not force the players into PVP areas if they do not want to
    go there.

    Basically all this game turns into is another giant gank fest where once you get past
    tier 4 materials for crafting anyone that wants to do crafting gets ganked
    repeatedly over and over again by teams of gank squads who roam around the
    zones. There are 8 different tiers of materials you can get up to tier 8.

    Also the servers seem to be pretty piss poorly run too you will be running around a
    zone collecting materials then boom all of a sudden you are logged out of the game and you have to log back in again.  There are no connection issues on my side what so ever I can go do everything else just fine. It is on the server side.

    Or I have had a few times where I could not even connect to their login server to be able to log into the server again it isn't my connection it is on the server side I could surf and do everything else normally except connect to the game.

    The servers are over crowded with 13 year old kids masturbating every time they kill a crafter and steal their stuff.

    The game is also full of bots as well out gathering materials and
    you do a /report on the bot and nothing gets done about it
    seems the admins of this game don't give a shit as long as they
    get your money.


    This is absolutely the worst "Sandbox" game I have ever seen.
    I use the term "sandbox" lightly for this game because really it isn't
    because a true sandbox game would not force a person who wants to
    craft to go into PVP zones to get materials and you should be able to just
    craft all the way up if you wish without having to do PVP.

    Albion online got the whole open world PVP concept totally wrong.

    Customer service on this game is rude and uncaring and they really don't give a shit. 

    The game is NOT free either I saw some sites advertising the this game is free to play it is not you have to buy a "starter pack" which ranges anywhere from $29.95
    USD (Veteran) up to $99.95 USD (Legendary) and then after that you can purchase
    a "premium" to be able to keep other perks in the game and pay a monthly fee of
    $9.95 USD a month.  This game is in NO way free to play!

    Avoid this game at all costs the player base is toxic and rude and just full of assholes.

    Rating of Albion Online 1/10

    You really don't understand the concept of a FFA PVP sandbox world.

    You don't have a "right" to do anything, including top tier PVE and crafting.

    You want to do those,  join a group who will make such territory available to you.

    Even in EVE you cannot mine the best ores unless you go into 0.0, and though.the game will let you train for them its a bit pointless if a player never goes into 0.0.
    Haven't played EVE since 2008, but 0.0 used to be safer than low sec..lol  Used to take my corp there to do mining runs with our mining barges which hadn't been out long and never had a problem.  Getting them through low sec though was a pain.  Don't know about now though.
