honestly, why do people want f2p?

#1OtakuGameraPosted 6/23/2013 6:16:06 PM
i hate f2p, most of the time all of the contents is not in game and has to be purchase using additional moneys. special equipments, aesthetics, mounts, pets etc etc.. all individually costs almost as much as the subscription themselves, with p2p you get them ALL. for the price of the subscription, you get every single item available in the game, no unique item that has to be bought individually, i dont get why people want f2p when p2p is actually cheaper imo
PSVita no games? http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/620272-playstation-vita/66080697

Yep, pretty much.

With f2p games, companies scramble to pay their staff and new content becomes an afterthought.

If developers get their money upfront from game purchases and subscriptions, their finances are secure, and they're able to put development of new content and satisfying their fanbase first, rather than thinking up how to squeeze money out of the players for content.

Simple, they don't want to pay the monthly fee. They want things as quickly & cheaply as possible

FTP is just another marketing scheme leave the MMO's with a paid service for heavens sake no more bs.

no one in this thread has ever played a good free to play game

I don't want free-to-play, but I would like buy-to-play like Guild Wars. With free-to-play the devs have to resort to all sort of tactics to make money and it's annoying. I'd rather frontload 60$ before playing so that they can leave me alone with "mandatory" cash shop purchases and other annoying monetization tactics while playing. Then they can have a cash shop that truly sells only cosmetic and "quality-of-life" items.

Skins nailed it perfectly, and I would much rather not play with a few extra thousand to whatever kids, look what happened to DCUO and a few other mmmo's that went free its garbage on so many levels I wont begin to start cause no one cares.
