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.
Signalling acceptance ahead of release will only convince Devs/Pubs they neednt worry and are free to provide a microtransaction lined descent into hell.
They are already convinced that they need not worry about adding micros, signaling acceptance or not won't change a mind decided. Just about every gaming company out there now (even Indies) has some form of mtx, loot box or pay gate put into their games anymore. Is it right? That's a personal question for every single gamer to decide on their own. If you are fine spending your money on pixels so be it. if not, don't hit the buy button. But in the end, the more that is spent on a game the more future content it is likely to see. That's how business works.
I am good with mtx being put into the game. I always thought they should have been added to D3 as well, they added the Diablo shop, why not sell some stuff in it? As long as it's purely cosmetic what's the problem. Hopefully they will keep the pricing reasonable on things though, GGG went a little overboard on the pricing of most of their MTX in PoE.
I would definitely buy additional stash space or character slots, being that I am a virtual hoarder.
