I don't know enough about WOW to say if this is a bad or a good thing, but I thought it  was funny that you chose a game on the opposite side of the MMORPG spectrum as an example.     

 

 

...I chose EVE, because EVE was the first to do it....Who cares if EVE and WoW are at the opposite ends of the MMORPG spectrum, WoW is only now implementing something that EVE has been doing for 10+ years, yet Blizz is now all of a sudden "sacraficing quality for profit"? How is that funny? You know what I find funny? Some of the same people who are now all of a sudden offended by this, have been giving the holy sandbox of all sandboxes, EVE, a free pass for 10+ years for doing the same thing. Heck, one can easily argue that in game currency in EVE is VASTLY more important in EVE than WoW when it comes to personal in game power, thus EVE is "more wrong".

It's a dark day when Bliz abandons quality in favor of more profit when they're already drowning in cash from WoW.

 

It's so sad when people discuss this, like in this article, as a "cool way to pay for you game sub with in game gold" when the reality is, these systems are all marketed that way, which sounds neato, but the bottom line is that all of these systems allow players to buy in game gold for cash - ie, cheat.

 

For most of MMORPG buying accounts, buying gold, and otherwise cheating at the game has been against the terms and bannable - because, you know, cheating at games is pretty lame.

 

But because companies would rather not have to incur the expense of dealing with cheaters, and because there are so many losers out there wanting to cheat at games, and because they can instead easily make easy money by facilitating the cheating themselves, several low life companies have already built this kind of thing into their games.

 

I surely never expected Blizzard to lower their standards to the bottom of the barrel like this.

 

If you're too gutless, stupid, pathetic, or whatever to actually PLAY games you buy and would rather "play" your way by cheating and buying gold to ease your way thru, how about instead just not play and do something more your speed like coloring books or starting at a wall drooling?

 

It's sad that there are so many people who want to cheat at these games that rather than deal with the cheaters, the host companies would rather facilitate the cheating themselves and make a bit of extra profit selling the gold themselves.

 

It's sad that the so-called gaming press treats this like it's some kind of great feature.  Yeah, the idea of paying for your sub with in-game gold is cool, and if companies just did that and it ended there it would be cool - but they couldn't make any money doing that.

 

As soon as they flip it into a situation where players pay even more than the usual cost of a sub to buy a token they sell in-game for game currency, it's all just cheating, facilitating cheating, making a nice bit of money for nothing off of cheaters, and it makes the games involved not worth playing for anybody who cares about quality of game.

 

Do YOU want to play on servers knowing that a lot the players around you are buying their way thru the game with cash?  It's as bad or worse than your average F2P pay to win sleaze.

 

The overall state of MMORPGs has been very crappy for a while now and news like this just makes it worse.

Blizz implementing something that has been  illegal for 10 years....queue end of world "Bliz abandons quality in favor of more profit" rants...

It's funny how WoW gets a pass for indirectly selling gold, and selling high-level characters directly.

There would've been outrage 4+  years ago, but now it's accepted, even by the big MMO fan sites.

FFXIV is the last major MMO to be a pure sub game now, from what i know.  

Its funny, that not only is WoW not the first to sell both charecters and game time via in game currency, but you seem to be completely oblivious to the fact that FFXIV also has a cash shop.

I am curious how gold sellers will be affected.

They will sell for less.

 

This is just a way for Blizzard to get a portion of the gold selling market.

 

aaand yes each token purchased will be counted as a 30 day sub....

They only get counted if they are activated, just like time cards...and why wouldn't they count them? They are in fact, after being activated, active subscriptions...

"Current Market Value", but you have no real say in how much you charge for your 'Token'?

That's not "Current Market Value" that's "Whatever  Blizzard think you should get for it" which is something else entirely.

"Current Market Value" is the point where what sellers are asking meets what buyers are willing to pay.

I imagine there's going to be an extra "Tax" hidden somewhere in these transactions, at least for the 1st week or two, until people work out how much it is, after which it won't be hidden (but will still be present).

TL;DR: I call SHENANIGANS.

 
 

I don't think you could even be more wrong, just to bash Blizzard.

The tokens are sold on the AH, and sold for whatever the seller wants to sell them for. What price they will get bought for, is another story....that's supply and demand...the tokens will go for exactly that, current market value...Blizzard has absolutly no input or control over the in game auction house prices.

TL;DR The poster I quoted doesn't know how in game auction houses work, and just wants to bash Blizzard...

Unlimit paragon level system, never run out carrot. 

There was 1000 limit the last time I played, after finding out how bad melee combat was pretty bad in higher level tiers.

There is no limit on paragon levels.

Have a look for yourself:

On a side note, RoS has made it the best Diablo game yet.

Ummm...speaking for the bottom 3% are you?

 

I want to see the IP live on.

 

It's not very tired.

 

"actually...I feel fine" "I think I could pull through sir"...

SWTOR, a game that many on these forums try to imply is one of the biggest MMO faileurs ever, currently has more players than EQ1 did at its peak...

Implying that there is a large portion of the MMORPG playerbase that wants to see a resurgence of the Everquest franchise, is the bottom 3% here...not the guy stating that most MMORPG players couldn't care less...

Takes too long to implement, might not even get enough people funding the new ideas,  and probably won't even collect enough money to sustain the game. There are just way too many freeloaders, MMORPGs as a whole is a dying genre now anyways.

Yet there are more people playing MMORPGs now, than ever. The MMORPG genre is making more money now, than ever....

People like you are cute lol.

.....based on the exact scenerio you describe, you would still be eligible...Do you really mean that you let it lapse for more than a month?

Am I missing something here?

i stopped playing for a little over a month and have 270 days subbed.  the way they explain it its 300 days concurrent with no lapses.

It doesn't say that at all...it actually says the opposite...."you have paid for 300 total days of subscription time (non-consecutive),"

It was never canon in my opinion.  The whole old republic history makes no sense from a logical point of view.  It's like technology stagnated between TOR and the movies.  I find the anger of EU fans to be hilarious.
 
 
Canon before the sale to me was George Lucas canon.  He didn't treat the EU as canon.

The prequals have more tech in them than the EP4, 5, and 6, yet are supposed to be before them......singling out the Old Republic universe is pretty funny.

Not sure if serious.

 

KOTOR is 4 THOUSAND years earlier with the same exact level of tech.  Absurd.  Lucas let them play in that timeline because he had no interest in it.  But if he had he would gladly have  invalidated all of it.

 

A New Hope versus the prequels is obviously explained by limitations in OUR technology to produce films. 

Not sure if serious.

With Disney in charge of Star Wars, and doing things like that new lightsaber, "canon" seems pretty damn meaningless right now.  

 

Disney is going to do whatever the hell lines their pockets "canon" be damned.  So really it seems like with Star Wars coming into an age of anything goes, no reason Bioware should worry too much about what was canon with Disney throwing everything out the door.

...I hope you said the exact same thing when Darth Maul's light saber was unveiled, and are not just saying it to simply to bash Disney in a hipster sort of way...

That's the freeloading moochers who want something for nothing.  And I do mean nothing.  They don't bother to log into the game, don't want to do anything that all.  They want a F2P game were things are given to them for free and complain if the company charges for a few things to make some money to pay their developers so that they can feed their families! 

They paid their $60 just like everyone else......the "amount of time they played the game" or "dates they logged in" should not factor into how much money they have to pay to use the content when they so choose.......they paid as much money as you did, they "supported the developers" as much as you did, they kept A.Net's employees mouth's fed as much as you did....there are no "free to play freeloaders" in GW2. I am personally all for paying for content...as a matter of fact, I am currently subbed to 2 MMOs, one of which is "F2P".....at the very least, this should hopefully stop people from throwing the "GW2 gives everyone all the content for free" line in anyone's face who criticize the game.

So ...

All the time we were ingame, creating a stable and active community and occasionally we were buying items from the shop.

 

How exactly did people who didn't play for months or even years support the game and the devs as much as we did?

You are assuming everyone bought from the store, which is in and of itself a big assumption......ergo, your entire point rests on one gigantic assumption....If I paid 60$ and played for 30 min...and you played for 2000 hours and paid your 60$...we both affected the game's bottom line in the exact same way...I am absolutely amaized that something like this needs to be explained...shoehorning in "ya, but we helped build the community", is completely disengenious.

Everyone who purchased at or near launch paid the same box price....just because you "played more", doesn't mean someone like myself should pay more money to experience the same content when we put the same amount of money into the game and A.Net's pockets....

In any event, I was responding to someone who called people who didn't want to pay for the content in question "freeloaders", which is insane considering said people already put in their 60$.

Not to mention that someone who buys the game and all of the extra content today, are getting it cheaper than someone like myself who bought at launch. I would have paid the 60$ box price, plus the price of the additional content, where as someone buying it today will spend 40$ and the cost of the content.....I am basically being penalized for being an early adopter....kind of a shitty thing for a "buy to play" game, no?

Well, this is your chance to prove that you care about the game. But all that you are proving is that ANet is right to not care much about people like these.

Buy it, dont buy it, play it, dont play it....noone cares really

early adopter...rofl

...you are advocating A Net not caring about people who put as much money into the game as you, simply because they don't play as often.......and ppl call EA greedy/sinister, geez....

So now is the time to enlighten us all to which part of game that you bought for 60$ was made inaccessible to you without paying.

And i yet have to see day 1 DLC from ANet.

And just look at SWTOR if you want definition of greed....*cough* paying for basic UI *cough* ....even for those who paid 60$ AND whatever they paid for sub in meantime, and thats just a SAMPLE of what was TAKEN AWAY from those who paid 60$

Yeah, you kinda shot, but shot your own foot instead

Yes, ANet cares for their loyal customers...not like some other companies around *cough* EA *cough* voted worst company in US by customers 3 years in a row *cough*

To both of you who quoted me...you should probably read my post......I didn't say that what is happening in GW2 is greed.....i said you tools advocating that A.Net not give 2 shits about those who paid the same amount of money, yet didnt play as much........I am not saying thats what A.Net is doing, only pointing out how crazy you guys are for saying thats what they should be doing, yet at the same time call EA greedy....

Rather than repeating that those who didn't play as much should be treated as "second class citizens", you tools should be pointing out that gems can be bought with in game gold...

 

Originally posted by Vannor

I'll say this again since everyone just keeps ignoring it...

You can buy gems with ingame gold...

This is a MUCH better defense than all of the tools claiming that people who play less often, but put just as much money into the game, should be neglicted by A.Net...

All of you should be repeating THIS, and not THAT....

You are assuming everyone bought from the store, which is in and of itself a big assumption......ergo, your entire point rests on one gigantic assumption....If I paid 60$ and played for 30 min...and you played for 2000 hours and paid your 60$...we both affected the game's bottom line in the exact same way...I am absolutely amaized that something like this needs to be explained...shoehorning in "ya, but we helped build the community", is completely disengenious.

Everyone who purchased at or near launch paid the same box price....just because you "played more", doesn't mean someone like myself should pay more money to experience the same content when we put the same amount of money into the game and A.Net's pockets....

In any event, I was responding to someone who called people who didn't want to pay for the content in question "freeloaders", which is insane considering said people already put in their 60$.

Not to mention that someone who buys the game and all of the extra content today, are getting it cheaper than someone like myself who bought at launch. I would have paid the 60$ box price, plus the price of the additional content, where as someone buying it today will spend 40$ and the cost of the content.....I am basically being penalized for being an early adopter....kind of a shitty thing for a "buy to play" game, no?

Well, this is your chance to prove that you care about the game. But all that you are proving is that ANet is right to not care much about people like these.

Buy it, dont buy it, play it, dont play it....noone cares really

early adopter...rofl

...you are advocating A Net not caring about people who put as much money into the game as you, simply because they don't play as often.......and ppl call EA greedy/sinister, geez....

First, the statement "Like the rest of the EU, Star Wars: the Old Republic was slapped with a 'Legends' imprint and sent on its merry way" isn't entirely correct. SWTOR has never officially been tagged as Legend status or actually as canon status it is in limbo.   The Story Group as you pointed out has been involved with the story direction of the game for the last two years which adds to the legitimacy of it being at least partially canon as Lucasfilm has said that moving forward after Legends was announced everything would be canon.  So i'm not quick to jump on the Legends status as it has never been confirmed.  

 

Second there are two ties that I have found that could possibly make it legitimately canon as it is linked to the Clone Wars.  Darth Bane and the Dark Saber.  First Darth Bane is canon thanks to Season 6 of the Clone Wars and if you follow his story he learns from a Holocron of Darth Revan partially.  Second the Darksaber was stolen from the Jedi Temple by an ancestor of Pre Vizla from the Clone Wars, presumably this was Shae Vizsla during Darth Malgus's raid on Coruscant during the time of the Old Republic. 

 

Admittedly these are some thin links but it does make it possible.

 

Do I think it matters if it is canon. No not really if you enjoy the story and love the game it only matters to you.  If they make it canon it could bring more players to the game and more tightly tie the story to the canon all the better.

 

 

 

Since the premise of the movies are based upon the Rule of Two. Darth Bane is canon regardless. Darth Bane studied a Revan Holocron. Thus making Revan canon. Revan's canon.... So SW:TOR is canon atleast partially.

 

 

And the movies can blow me. The books and all the series after the movies are 100000 times better then the shit George Lucas wrote or directed. 

You know this rule of 2 is getting thrown out the window with the introduction of sith inquisitors..right?? This particular part of "lore" has been retconned already, go watch some Rebels to see what I mean.

The rule of 2 is in the movies and 100% cannon. It's mentioned quite specifically in episode 1....it hasn't been retconed.....it was also not followed 100% by all sith....heck...do you realise how many apprentices Vader has had in official lore pre Disney purchase????...

They paid their $60 just like everyone else......the "amount of time they played the game" or "dates they logged in" should not factor into how much money they have to pay to use the content when they so choose.......they paid as much money as you did, they "supported the developers" as much as you did, they kept A.Net's employees mouth's fed as much as you did....there are no "free to play freeloaders" in GW2. I am personally all for paying for content...as a matter of fact, I am currently subbed to 2 MMOs, one of which is "F2P".....at the very least, this should hopefully stop people from throwing the "GW2 gives everyone all the content for free" line in anyone's face who criticize the game.

So ...
