Jesus, between Trump and Brexit Ive read some real shite lately but this thread takes the crown.
First its ok with this, next its ok with that, and it continues until its please Blizz just gimme the game and ill give you an all-access pass to my bank account.
The game isnt even here yet but youre all happy to tell Blizzard youll pay even more after purchase, what in the hell does that say about you other than youre so gullible Blizz could produce a half-assed game knowing they can fleece you lot for more later.
Its a game! if it gets an asking price which we choose to pay, it shouldnt then be a non-stop fucking carousel of extras, we bought the damn thing already. If Blizz cant make a game and support it from its retail sales and expansion packs to provide longevity they have no business making the game. Im tired of the games as a service bullshit applying to games with an upfront purchase. D3 is half the game it couldve been and why? because its in the no-mans land of always online, purely for the insane demand for leaderboards that ultimately proved meaningless. In turn that meant no possibility of mods from the community which then makes you all bitch and whine that Blizzard dont provide updates fast enough. There hoinestly arent enough facepalms for modern gamers.
Enjoy games, be a fan if you want but stop rolling over and playing the needy geek to big game companies, they dont need financial assistance and offering more will just mean they give less and take more to provide what was missing.
In a Perfect world I would agree with you. BUT we all know what will happen in the year 2019 if a big company dont please its shareholders and have some kind og monetization. And yes Activision Blizzard are som greedy fuucks, but that is the world we live in.
I respect your position, but some ppl actually love MTX.
MTX are a necessary evil. If they're cosmetic only.
What I don't like about MTX is that I'd rather all that cool art / pets just be in the game as something very rare to find. However since they obviously need to continually make money to support the game, then sure do pets / mounts.
I really dont mind MTX either if they are cosmetic only. I get the argument, that you buy a game and future expansion, then shouldent cosmetic be free to obtain? like D3. Maybe there is some truth to that, because its not an Free to play like PoE.
But if they can keep the MTX within a decent price range, and your still able to obtain cool self-found cool lookin armor in-game I really dont see a problem.
I just hope that the MTX ppl buy go for regular content up-date and not just expansions every 2nd year only.
