Scot said:He does seem to have done an amazing job. But I would say in todays gaming climate how many franchises other than FF would have had the money to reinvent their MMO and have such a strong fan base that they could do so and players would not have written them off after such a failure?
While there is no doubt the FF name has a lot of draw, the
quality would have spoken for itself over time... I think the real question is,
would anyone other than SE have enough pride in their IP that they are willing
to invest so much in correcting their mistakes?
And grats to Yoshi P, very much deserved (and appreciated for creating a modern FF game worthy of the name).
Freudian slip?DracSchnider said:First of all I'm going to set a few things straight seeing that I have read a lot of the forums here.
Play to win does not exist in SOTA. ...
So wait till after launch, read some reviews, watch some streams, see what others are saying about it...Goromhir said:Its damn risky to buy games these days, in the past we have been BETA Testers over years after buying games.
Make it F2P with a shop like the most others and i might try it.
No way i pay $50 in advance for a online game i have not tested by myself before buying in 2018 !
Just say "Anthem will not have loot boxes" and its already a success.
Serious question: how much should the game cost to buy?
With no loot boxes and no subscription (think Wildstar, ESO, SWTOR etc.) the box price will need to cover all the development costs, marketing costs, running costs and provide a profit.
Will you expect follow on content? As DLC? If so how much should the DLC cost? How frequent?
"confusing variations in displayed XP values"...
as opposed to the perfect clarity that is displaying blatantly incorrect
And I suppose it never occurred to them to display +2500XP (50%) to let the player know that they had only earned 50% of the 'normal' XP for the activity.... Or to advertise in-game that certain activities currently had an XP bonus?
No, no, far better that players get burnt out on the grind (that they think they are earning reasonable XP from) and remain ignorant of the ways they could maximise their XP / Hour, driving them to the cash shop instead.
As for the improvements, I guess time will tell, but at this point it is very much 'wait for the D2:TTK edition'... assuming it ever happens.
