      Players being freeloaders hmm they need players to keep the game going and they put it out for free probably saving money on advertising.

      When it comes to cursing, I've talked with people that are okay with it and think its okay for it become common language... but then again, they are never seen as something positive because their meaning always relays something negative. It's funny seeing how unprofessional the PR is in that company because calling people names and giving no ounce of remorse to the players isn't something you want to see from people that come to you as their main means of getting in touch with the game's heads of development. And, to make it even weirder, they could actually come clean and let people know how the company really wants to move forward (and that is to really try and get people to spend) or tell some lie to die down the hate and get those that want to leave, to leave so that there isn't much bad coverage but this... this is just making the whole player base get upset and group together to want to pull out...

      Unlike other f2p games in Apex you actualy get few "handme down" trash items if you never spend any money.

    I dont get why people get so mad. Sure the event packs are annoying (honestly I personally havnt even liked any of the skins in any of the events) but you also get plenty of packs from just playing the game while spending a total of 0$ and if you buy the battle pass then you get even more packs (one guaranteed legendary and a few rare packs) and the heirlooms are still in the regular packs (as far as I know) for 10$. Sure the heirlooms are a super low chance but that's that's point of them. The events are just like a concert. You can listen to the music on the internet for free all you want but to go see the band live (the event) you have to pay for it. You know damn well some of you have paid 200$ for coachella or some shitty music festival. Now sure 200$ for cosmetics is ridiculous and I'm not saying anyone should spend that much but paying a slightly higher price for event packs I can understand. I have none of the heirlooms (I'm lvl 150ish) at the time of posting this and I will keep opening packs till I get one for free because honestly I think it adds to how special they are. This is just my opinion tho and I know theres people that want to have everything unlocked in the game but it's also a free game. Having to spend that much more money on a 60$ game (cough black ops 4) would be deserving of this kind of backlash and toxicity.

    Breath of the Wild: 25 bucks for 2 new side quest modes (Master Trials and Champuon's Ballad) Xenoblade Chronicles 2: 30 bucks for some extra blades, extra side missions, and an entire new game (The Golden Country) Smash Bros Ultimate: 25 bucks for 5 DLC characters, with stages and accompanying music. Mii Fighter skins are all 75 cents each. Apex: Hundreds of dollars for FUCKING SKINS? I seriously dont get it. I would literally, physically vomit if I discovered myself spending that much money for literally nothing. I cannot understand throwing that much money at a game.

    12:32 In Paladins, a single battle pass that costs *15* dollars will give you *four* skins that feature new models, character voices and (quite possibly) ability effects. You also get one new announcer pack, at least two or three new taunts, several loot boxes to get even more stuff *for free* and several "skin boosts" that, when activated, temporarily grant your *entire team* the ability to pick skins that you don't even own yet. Asking for 20 dollars for just one gun is flatout insulting.

    "Most of yall are freeloaders and we love that"...that was the moment I stopped spending money in this game. Id spent hundreds and had the ps cards to get the iron crown bullshit (wasnt happy about it, but was going to because I wanted it.) But the moment I read that I decided to buy a few games instead. Thx Drew for reminding me that dedicating my free gaming time to full single player games is more rewarding.

    Warframe is the flagship free to play title, but build times are 12hrs to 3days and new players are more likely to rush Only the veterans have a voice, and they all say it's completely free But if a gambling addict gets ahold of it, they're definitely gonna drop some cash Those addicts are less likely to speak up out of shame, and for any addict looking for a game WITHOUT insidious transactions, Warframe is one of the first suggested

    I have spent hundreds on Overwatch for cosmetics which is not even a free game. But I regret even buying the battle pass on Apex. I have never seen developers being like this towards their players. And it's like they don't even fix the game's bugs. The code:leaf bug has been happening a lot for the past few months and they've not fixed it. Which is weird because it makes consuming the game really hard. It's like Apex is a good game in it's core but it has super shit developers. I can't wait until there is a good alternative game available.

    What's interesting about this is the developer's approach on the situation. It almost seems as though they can't understand where the backlash is coming from and why it's so hostile. The exuberant prices for skins or items providing an edge over an opponent didn't develop over night and the reason why the gaming community is so pissed off is because it's been happening for years. Pretending to be surprised at the level of frustration from players is mind-blowing and sickening. It's been all over the gaming media that people are disgusted with EA's practices so why would it be OK for a different company to start doing the same thing?

    This is right way of making apology it is wisdom of South Park. I bet admitting problem and praising fan base would have better reception. Try this clip South Park- Japanese penis is so small. I wonder why developers always defend themselves by attacking fans or consumers perhaps American corporate culture? Or too high salaries and not understanding value of digital item? Even trying to defend this by saying need to keep players interested or need money and they are actually driving away fanbase by placing everything behind paywall or gambling. Steady content free to play games keep players interested not milk the whales events with horrible deadlines. Some games do this lot better some of them are also free to play none have been so outrageous as Apex has been. Well it is again test of limits how much are whales willing to pay.

    Begs the question how a reasonably renowned developer who once made Titanfall, devolved into the f-ing mess they are now. I doubt that these morons are representative of the studio as a whole, and will probably be fired or their official handles removed... But FFS EA, how do you NOT realize why consumers view and treat you with sheer distain? Apex, dying. NBA, dying. FIFA, dying. Need for Speed, clinging to life please shoot it already. Mass Effect, dead. Dragon Age, dead. Anthem, dead. Sims, dead. Red Alert, dead. Command & Conquer, dead. Medal of Honor, dead. Battlefront, dead. And yet EA STILL doesn't get it.

    EA is a scumbag company, and i boycott their games for years now. But this is a free game. A good free game at that, and its just a cosmetic item. If people want to pay that much to stand out, then let them. Why is everyone so upset about this? If this was a 60 dollar game or if the weapon gave you an edge over other players than i would understand.

    Players weren't ass hats to developers in the old days because there was not bullshit microstransactions back then and you could earn EVERYTHING in the game that you paid 60$ by playing the game. Once you devs agreed to allow the game to be split up into pieces so it can squeeze every possible cent out of the player base, that's when we lost any respect and became (rightfully) upset

    Why people care so much about cosmetics? I'm with developers on this one, they can charge whatever they want, if it's selling then it is fine, if is not selling they will lower the prices, no reason to be angry on cosmetics only free to play game. If you want to release something super exclusive it has to be super expensive. Would you want that axe if it was free and anyone had one?

    Prieš 5 mėnesių

    If they had just made an almost impossible way of getting the items for free entire problem fixed. Even if the chances are microscopic just having the chance would be a better look. Personally i think most of the community sounds like babies crying over cosmetics but I will agree having items completely locked behind multiple paywalls is shitty but mostly to the minority of ppl actually spending money on cosmetics.
