no one complains about that. f'ing gamers man im telling ya.
This is fantastic, another thread from some stranger telling me exactly how much MMOs cost to develop and run, supporting the traditional sub model while broadly demonising the F2P model (because they are all the same). Strange how the reality of several F2P models and content development contradict the OP's thesis, but when did facts get in the way of a good, uninformed internet tirade?
I can't personally think of a better entertainment-per-dollar value than WoW or something similar.
Me and some friends went to see IM3 in Imax 3d. Tickets were $14.50 apiece and food/drinks came added $13 on top of that. So for a little over 2 hours I spent nearly $30 - the cost of 2 months of WoW.
So yeah, I'm quite happy to pay the monthly cost, and don't care whether or not it ever decreases.
Lol no, please Don't. Ever. Try. To. Generalise. All. The. MMO. Gamers. Under. One. Statement. As. False. As. This. One.
I'm definitely a MMO gamer for years, and I hate passionately any MMo that has "free" option. That "free" always means you'll have to pay TONS of your money to make your game comfortable, and by "tons" I mean a lot more that a subscription costs. Even if all that sells online for real is cosmetic looks, that means that in-game free armours and weapons are so ugly you'll have to buy something. Microtransactions are evil, and should die forever. Too bad that people have much more money than brains nowadays and can't be afforded to count.
If you're an MMO player that means you play many MMOs. Free to play model or Buy to play model is the most convenient model for that type of gamer. Subscription was never the perfect model, it followed the "If it is not broken, don't fix it" logic for awhile, but MMO players show with their MONEY that they prefer the freemium model.
i'm really confused why people complain about how there are f2p games that are just as good as the sub based games. if that is true why are you crying on the internet? shouldn't you be playing these superior games? i know if i had two viable options and one cost me and the other didn't i'd be playing a game not whining like an entitled brat.
