It has been a while since I have written much. When winter hits I usually hibernate like our animal counter parts. I did rush out and buy Dragon Age, so a lot of play time has been put into that game and not in the MMO worlds lately. BUT..... I see an unpleasant trend starting in the MMO world. A world of micro charging for everything. You always wanted to be that BE hottie instead of the Troll skamp you rolled, well that will be $20.00 dollars please. Hit enter before proof-reading your name? $15.00 and you can fix that. Want a neat pet that entertains you? Donate $20.00 and it's yours... oh also some of that will more than likely go to a charity.
Has it become so desperate in the MMO world that it is time to gank-strip the very customers that have kept you going for 4+ years? I see more companies pushing the line between monthly pay and item sale milking. Soon, as some are already heading, you will be paying a monthly fee and for extras!
I say stop the madness! I am all for a company making a profit, but do not milk the cow dry.
