Enjoy!

how has the f2p model evolved since open beta launch?

Last time i played (somewhat long time ago) nothing was unlockable through gameplay, everything was cash shop locked.

My endgame begins with character creation and ends with a new mmorpg

Pretty much everything is unlockable through gameplay without spending any real world money.

There are some things like extra colours, Mechs with a C-Bill Bonus (they make more ingame money) that be Cash-Shop only but they have occasionally Challenges and Events where you can win/gather MC (Mech Credits - the Cash-Shop equivalent to real world money) to buy Shop Items or get free Colours, Mechbays and Champion-Mechs.

Game Rant Article:
"MechWarrior Online is a polarizing free-to-play game."
"And to further reiterate how the devs are working harder to keep the community pleased, because of the launch issues and to say thank you to the fans, any player who logged in this week gets a complimentary day of premium time and a free mechbay – both of which would otherwise cost premium currency."

I wouldn't say polarizing, so much as it is an insult to everything mechwarrior and battletech.

This IP deserved much more than being a stripped down arena shooter, with one of the worst cash shops in the entire industry ($500 gold mechs? lol).

Hopefully this game will close and another company will get the IP.

It was never like that, I think you misunderstood the currencies, 90% of the content is available for in game currency. The other 10% is merely variations of mechs or consumables rather then totally unique content.

As much as the game isn't what we really wanted, if it fails we're never going to see another MechWarrior game.

There will be no other MWO if PGI drops the Ball!

And they have begun to try harder in the last months so there is a Silver Lining on the Horizon.

And atm i Play for Free and have >14.000 matches (Well, i payed a Founder and Phoenix Pack but my most played Centurion Mech is a C-Bill Mech that does not need any RTM Action and was aquired by ingame money made from free Trial Mechs).

At this point, I think that is a risk we are willing to take.

How can you say it's the worse cash shop in the industry? No one has to buy the gold mechs so that the price is exorbitant is not an issue.

The only thing you have to buy for real money is bays. There are no mechs that you can buy for MC that give an advantage. It's just fluff. Clan mechs do not count since they'll be available for C-Bills.

If you want to see a bad cash shop take a look at TOR. They are charging for basic functionality like hotbars. You can only fly three missions a week unless you pay. Even if you are preferred status it's still only three missions (one would have thought that it at least would be six to make it different from totally free to play players).
