Backpack:---50 slots-------------------------------300 slots (expandable up to 1000)

expandable to 1000 items, eh? i dunno... that kinda worries me, i can totally see the option to "rent" 30 days worth of extra backpack slots coming around at some point.


No, backpack expanders permanently increase your capacity by a backpack page...

The Backpack Expander is a tool. When used, it will grant 100 extra slots, or two full pages, to the user's backpack. Multiple expanders can be used by the same player but only up to a maximum of one thousand slots, or twenty pages.

I dont think they should do free/prenium accounts if so they need to give $10 to the poeplewho bought the game after F2P was initiated


do you also feel that every time a game gets a price drop, everyone should get a check for the price difference?

eh, i'm still wary. going by other f2p shooters i've played, it seems to be fairly common for just about everything (weapons, skins, hats even). and we've all seen by now that just about nothing in regards to the game is really "set in stone," other than the hats.

that being said, i do think valve did a fairly good job of f2p integration, simply by virtue of not following the money-hungry ncsoft method of f2p.

Here's the difference, premium players is filled with non stop b**** fest who apparently cry and whine about everything. Free players just want to play and have fun.

Waaahhh hats
Waaaahh new players
Waaahhh this is OP
Waaahhh not even weapons for this class
Waaaahh now it has a store
Waaaahh crafting even though it's purely a choice

etc. etc.

Q. How does Free-to-Play affect existing users?
It doesn’t

Oh, Valve, you so troll.


That's just how you think.

minor edit to my previous post (but i cant do a true edit on it, as its been much longer than an hour)

that being said, i do think valve did a fairly good job of f2p integration, simply by virtue of not following the money-hungry ncsoft method of f2p.

^should read as nexon, not ncsoft. ncsoft actually does have some business practices i admire... where as nexon makes crap like maple story and, -shudder- combat arms.
