hmm, methinks someone doesn't like markiplier? lmao
I don't mind spending money to support the devs after the initial release, that's why my most played games are PoE, Warframe, GW2. But there I'm supporting them because I can see what I'm buying and they not trying to exploit every last inch of money out of my pocket with gambling tactics. You correct microtransactions shouldn't be a problem. BUT because this stuff is in loot boxes and not in the game it is a problem. And all of the ways this article explains how the devs are cheating players out of there rewards is lying and stealing from the players.
Path of Exile does have a loot box, one you cannot earn in game with armor sets you cannot get without gambling.
Destiny 2's loot box is cosmetic only and can be earned for free in game. - This is fine as players who do not buy microtransactions are not hampered by that choice and even get to experience the cosmetics.
Battlefront 2's loot box can be earned for free in game, but grants items that significantly change gameplay. - This is not okay as content is behind paywalls in addition to the original cost of the game.
Path of Exile is a completely free to play game with constant significant updates. Some microtransactions do heavily improve in game content, but the majority do not. There are expensive loot boxes that lock cosmetic only items, but this is to incentivize big spenders to support the game. - This is fine.
Hearthstone is free to play but few free to play players will get to experience the game to it's intended effect without major time encumbrance. This major disadvantage to F2P players was made worse with the cards locked behind "Adventures" however the studio has stopped creating these. The game is still extremely unfriendly to F2P players although it has been proven to be 'possible' to play for free. The game requires significant time and money commitments (Completing quests every 3 days and a minimum of $50, 3 times per year for "preordering") to maintain a powerful collection. - This is controversial.
The latest I've read from the subreddit is how Bungie has doubled the required XP to level up. Utterly hilarious and disgusting. I'll be staying as far away from that shitshow as I can.
You have a point.
Same, but i wasted time reseting my steam password because i forgot it :/
