I thought this article meant "Buy" with real money too before I read further. Those that didn't read more than the header could have easily misunderstood. Tons of people probably think you can buy BiS equipment with real money now.SBFord said:Pay to win? You only get the currency through actual play. It's not purchasable. It's not like a loot box, just RNG-based and with the item needed to buy it only obtainable in-game. FFS. This P2W "I hate loot boxes" garbage is getting out of hand.RexKushman said:Pure P2W.
My biggest issue with Wildstar is mob/zone density. Everything is really packed together with stuff everywhere.Torval said:I think ESO should be MMO of the year, but I can see why FF14 got it. It's solid and very popular and a lot more traditional in many ways.
The rest I totally agree with. I'm surprised BotW didn't get top honors, but I agree that D:OS2 deserves it. I think how they've pushed boundaries with multiplayer in that format, while still keeping the great narrative and broad appeal has earned it that place.
Destiny 2 is an incredible game and so awesome. The shooting is fun and solid. It doesn't matter that it isn't a full on MMO to me because it feels enough like one and the community is good to play with.
If I had to pick an alternate hybrid-MMO it would be Secret World Legends. Funcom has done a lot to move the idea of a persistent shared world RPG forward. They should get credit for that.
I don't get the Wildstar hate. That is such a fun MMO. The reason I don't play Wildstar is the same as it is for Final Fantasy XIV, I don't have a group to play with. Those two MMOs aren't fun to me without friends. I never found guilds that clicked while I played and so I lost interest. The kinds of long term progression and goals for both fit with having a guild to pour that energy into.
