Hadn't heard/realised MH:O was managed by a subsidiary company, thanks for correcting me there. Not sure I needed such a malicious response when the developers have yet to say definitively there'll be no micro-transactions (only that there'll be no way to skip content), but I'd rather not get into that argument.


Out of interest, what server do you play on? I did some research into the game a few months ago (when MH:W started advertising) hoping to pass some time playing through VPNs. Maybe it was a lack of research, or maybe it was out-of-date data; but I heard that there were micro-transactions for pretty much everything in the game, and that whilst Singapore's servers were the cheapest to play on; it still limited you to pre 3* quests and put paywalls behind most of the bank storage. If you could fill in my knowledge gaps/correct me where I'm wrong, it'd be much appreciated.

A quick look at the Japanese game 'Monster Hunter Online' will show you Capcom aren't afraid of paywalls. Being a free-to-play title, you can't use your box without paying a monthly subscription. Certain items can't be crafted or used without another subscription cost. Another bill if you want to play past 3* quests. Money will get you strong health potions and other buffed items you can carry alongside your Free-earned gear to help the longer/harder hunts.
They'll happily rake every penny they can get away with, but I think they know when selling to the world market that people will be against the micro-transactions included in previous titles. I'd be shocked if they removed all micro-transactions from this game, since they'll want to keep making money off this release. We can hope they do this through Season passes and large DLCs, but interviews at the moment suggest they'll be focusing on short-term small quests, free missions much closer to Hitman's exclusive targets. It's going to be interesting to see how they deal with this one, trying to keep the publics peace whilst still earning money.

thanks for intentionally misinforming urself. Their is NOT gonna b any micros in World. They havent said it once! and no Capcom isnt the one tht added the micros, loot boxes, etc. into MH Online, tht was Tencent, the main devs of the spinoff. Capcom only had say on wht is and isnt allowed in the game. Maybe do some research sometime, hm? (source: Ive been playing MH Online for months)
