Well the issue with horse armor was the price vs the value. Your getting a 5 second graphics thing for the same price that you can get entire quest series with later oblivion DLC.

I was one of those that complained, I didn't hate oblivion DLC idea, being on console I was all for it, I hated the cost and how little was given, I was afraid and so were many others, that were going to play 4-5$"s for a 10 second DLC every time.


But these are the sorts of things that the market works out for itself. Until the government forces you to buy something, price works itself out - it doesn't always end up what you want, but the people setting the prices get to live with the sales, or lack thereof.

I'm in the xbox WoT beta and I enjoy it but some of those tier 8 premium tanks on the PC are pretty freaking expensive.


Yeah but the game is free and you can get plenty of tier 8 tanks for free too. I have never spent a penny on WoT (and I'm guessing most others havent either, considering the state of the servers) and yet I have a blast playing it most evenings.

EDIT: Nothing quite like camping in a bush with your elite Tank Destroyer waiting for captain_noobcaek in his light tank to get the jitters and charge at you head first and then promptly turning his crew into a stain on the landscape.


I enjoy exploding T29s with my T28 more. Wait for them to turn their "invincible turret" and nail'em right in the ammo rack.

Horse armor always gets cited, but, as should be obvious at this point, DLC didn't go away. Horse Armor being a perfect example, if you wanted it, great - if you didn't, great.


Thats pretty much what I'm getting at. The backlash from horse armour was huge and companies got a lot better with their DLC offerings. On disc DLC needs to die and day 1 dlc is annoying but understandable in some circumstances (though I'd prefer they focused their post gold attention on bug fixes) but overall DLC got much better,

The truth is, I spend more time on mobile gaming these days than I do console gaming - console gaming could learn a thing or two - hopefully it does.


Same. And if it wasn't for Steams irresistible deals I'd probably spend more on mobile gaming too. Just the other day I bought myself another builder in clash of clans but its been a few weeks since I bought anything on Steam.

Yeah I know not a console.


I don't think the backlash was a big as people act like it was. The people who don't like DLC moaned, but it still sold (because there are other people who did like it). It's hard for people to adjust to changes, but this is an industry where people vote with their wallets. If someone puts out something no one wants, it doesn't sell. If no on wanted what DLC offered, it would have died a long time ago.

The problem is, there are some people that have a terrible time understanding that other people have different wants/needs/opinions than they do. So there's griping about DLC from a portion of the gaming population that thinks DLC ruins games - in the meantime, there are plenty of gamers that LIKE what DLC adds. Funny thing is, DLC gives more options than the "you buy everything or your get nothing" model that console gamers expect now.

Like I said, at it's core, it's about not wanting to change - once people embrace the options, (and stop fixating on what they think they "don't get" that they "should" get), the world of DLC and MT and F2P and whatever else comes isn't so bad. In fact, there's some really good things about it.


Like I said, I have no problem when it adds to a game

So far, more than half of DLCs have been subtractions, that you can buy back, which is god awful.

There are exceptions, but the season pass type crap is pretty bad, BF4 in general had less than half the maps of Bf3, and with the "Premium" it has as many as bf4, same as forza, forza5 has less content than 4, but you can buy..... content from 4 to 5? Ya... Withheld DLC ransomware

Is it just me or are SPGs totally worthless? By the time your moronic crew has reloaded and aimed your target has either been killed, hidden behind something or just disappeared. And their accuracy is so low that its pointless not to use them as artillery.

I've dabbled with the Loyd GC and the Sexton 2 and I just ****ing hate them.

I play WoT on PC and all it takes is the grind. I have T7s and never spent a penny on the game. But I have lots of fun playing it.

The xbox version only has parts of the German and American lines. I've played with the strumpanzer and it was to weak to do anything, may as well roll a Hetzer with the 105 derp. The Grille was freaking amazing though, highly accurate and with the gun laying drive it's quite a force to be reckoned with. Hummel has worse accuracy with the Grille's gun so I didn't grind it out and sold it.

I find them more annoying than anything and they are too inaccurate to bother with when you could pick a heavy and put more damage down range and have movement, armour, etc.
