I'm just curious as to what happened to the concept that "Hey I pay $15 a month to play this game what happened to special event items being included in that?" Like WoW, Rift, EQ, basically any other MMO out there. Where did this idiotic concept that I need to pay extra for this kind of [filtered] come from?
Of course I know Fanidiots will come on out proclaiming "well they're here to make money." or "it helps support the game you like" yadda yadda ect ect... Whil I agree to a point, this just looks stupidly greedy. New or potential players see stuff like this and be put off. They seriously are, profit or not.
And yes I realize you can get the items TEMPORARILY in game.
Point is, if this kind of thing continues this game isn't going to last much longer. It doesn't have that big of a player base to begin with, and it's turning some of that player base against it. I certainly know I won't be continuing to play if I basically have to spend money every time an event comes along to enjoy it. And blindly defending it won't make it go away any sooner, this is where fantards are actually a detriment to the game.
