The first part of your sentence is called “F2P games”, the second part is called “Normal games with a fixed price at release”.
What these companies dont realize is that its possible to fool people one time but not all the time. So hopefully with some common good sense, this stupid concept of F2P game will die by itself with time. Not talking about gameplay, fun factor of various part of Gems, etc… just talking about F2P game concept.
Im gonna finish my time with this game (first and only F2P game I will ever play in my life, entering into it without any idea of what was this concept). Still enjoying a few things…thrill of GW, chat with members of my guild,… also curious to keep studying this stinky F2P concept and how far they will dare to go with this game. Campaign pass is a new interesting step btw.
Then total boycott of any F2P, 505 or IP2 products in future.
I just cant have the slightest respect for companies involved into F2P.
You plan to create a great game? Wonderful! Then just sell it with a fixed price at release and stop hustling people with all these cheap and stinky addictive mechanics to condition minds to spend 100s on a little 2D game worth 20$.
Have a little more respect for the players.
Sirrian once said he would be worried if some players would be put in difficulty by spending too much money on this game.
Then dont create such kind of F2P game with implementing tons of addictive mechanics that drive people into spending if it worry you so much and sell normal games with fixed price at release like you did in the past.
What will or could you do to help the players that fell in trouble because of your game? Absolutely nothing!
Me, I think I’m gonna start producing and selling cigarettes!.. but be assured that I would be extremely worried if anyone buying my product become addicted or start to suffer of health or money problem because of my product…really I would be EXTREMELY worried…TRULY SINCERLY EXTREMELY worried. But…eh…what can I do…its life… individual responsability you know… so after some serious thinking, I will still start to produce and sell cigarettes because…why not? Its legal after all!
