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.
Oh dont get me wrong, I do half expect them, andI understand there are whales prepared to pay for dress-up priveledges. That some people are willing to throw money like confetti is none of my godamn business. But it does become an issue that should be everyones problem when some gamers are so short sighted they happily broadcast the fact theyre prepared to accept and pay for extras in advance of release. Microtransactions are nothing more than a downhill road to ruin, some companies will make the descent short, shallow and barely noticeable hoping we dont notice that it is indeed downhill, while others will make it a harsh descent into a cesspit, gouging all the way down because their games are designed only as a front for their endless need to increase profits.
As gamers we almost all have a desire to collect and complete, but we ALL need to remember that those traits are exploitable, and its corporate nature to do just that. Signalling acceptance ahead of release will only convince Devs/Pubs they neednt worry and are free to provide a microtransaction lined descent into hell.
An ironic path for a game called Diablo
