Microtransactions Part 1: Aesthetics

#1darksoulpriestPosted 11/12/2008 8:53:08 PM
I'll be posting mine up soon. Not now though, possibly this Friday, I have an AP Comp Govt test to be studying for.

Remember, just post micro's for aesthetics, not for anything else, I'll eventually make topics for other sorts soon.

Shut your pie hole scrub, before I PvP your ass up. :D

Okay, let's go!

Shiny Hands 99c for one, $11.99 for account

Essentially, you can buy what the Proph (CE iirc) gave you. You can choose your color and use the emote on one of your characters, or your account if you so pay for it.

PvP weapon skins 99c - $3.99

Who spends their tournament reward points on PvP armor? That's just stupid. Pay for the skins now, instead! Each skin will vary on how cool it looks, from 99c to $3.99. Voltaic spears and those sorts of prestige items are the $3.99 ones. Per character, however, and only for PvP.

Other professions' dances $1.99

Get another person's dance emote for your character? Want your monk to dance like a ranger? Buy it!

Collectable Heroes! $1.99 per hero for account

Want Togo back? Anton? <Insert previous hero or NPC from GW>? Well, but it, and use them for HB!

They would have to make the PvP weapon skins account-wide, rather than per character. Most people delete their PvP character every few weeks, or even days, which is the reason why no one uses tournament points to buy them. If they make it account wide (for PvP characters only still), then people would buy them much more often.

OmG i would buy shiny hands for 12 dollars for sure!

but arrested development skins on the other hand... blue tobias ftw! id totally pay to be zoidberg from futurama too. now that i think about it, a futurama mmo would be completely badass, you could pay for a total reskin of the game. screw vanilla gw2.

Microtransactions only diminish the integrity of the game, it makes it feel less like a game and more like a collector race.
