Erm.. you mean ONE more!

I hate companies that pull stunts like this to get more unknowing people into the game. Why do it? Just ends up bad for them when people realise there are hardly any classes and they weren't up front about it.

Look, they have said time and time and TIME again that they had the time to either make 5 complete classes that felt unique and different or 8 sub-standard classes. I am glad on the decision they made. 

I see people getting so bent out of shape about this but in honest how many classes do you intend to play at launch? I also pick a class and level that one up before investing in others. At best I might be so brazen to level two up! 

But just because the game has 5 classes now does not mean there will not be 'more' which is the point of it being announced as such. Saying 'there is 5 classes' makes it finite in peoples mind. Adding 'more' makes it sound like theres more classes, or more coming, which they have said their will be.

What they will do is make more classes keeping 5 atm is just not a good plan. There are alot of options that are avaiable to them to make this game really good for a F2P system.  What they need to do is just simply say hey we got 5 and will be makeing 1-2 every few months years odnw the raod so idk.  Looks ufn and dont need to spend alot of real cash.

They have repeatly said more classes will be anded at no cost. this are just the first. its a new game do you really expect it to have all  its content out upon releases? with how trendy we gamers have become we would tired of it even faster than the normal 3 months.

I for one am pretty excited about this one and

I didn't say it was false advertising.. technically it isn't. I see it as unethical though. If you know a thing or two about marketing you know that every single word and image used in these videos is debated and decided upon over long periods of time. They knew exactly what they were doing and know exactly why they used 'more' instead of saying the last class. Not knowing that is naive.

I think 5 classes for a D&D game is just wrong. It's not D&D even from a character choice pov, let alone everything else. That's not the point though, they arn't being upfront about it and used 'more' so there was a chance of some people, those that don't bother to research every aspect of all the games they play before playing them (which is the majority), creating an account and getting ingame without realising there are only 5 classes.. it's like shrouding the truth. It's not lying, but it's not telling potential consumers everything.

Saying two classses are finished but buggy is a self-contradiction. Something that is buggy.. is not finished.

I also don't care what they are 'planning' to do with classes in the future. This video is released 'now' and will be judged based on the games current state. If more classes make it into launch, fine. If they don't, they should be ashamed of themselves.

Yep...big evil company is trying to trick people into thinking the game offers far more to get them to play...their FREE game.

 

There are more than a few games being plugged on this site by companies trying to trick people out of MONEY, save it for them.
