[QUOTE=LittleDogX;34621033]The only price reductions I see are the new weapons that costed 170000 XP now "only" cost 100000 XP. Anything else seems like it was too minor of a change for me to notice. (I also got no XP back).[/QUOTE] That's like, a lot of difference. ungrateful much?
Of course I also spent all my XP on completely gimping out my Sentinel so I don't have any other class with reasonable upgrades to play with now. I had a bad feeling this'd happen in the patch.
[QUOTE=latin_geek;34621088]That's like, a lot of difference. ungrateful much?[/QUOTE] 170000 was too much, but 100000 is STILL too much. I'm not being ungrateful, I just think their idea of "free" shouldn't stem around playing 100 matches just for one weapon, and another 20 matches just to upgrade the weapon

[QUOTE=latin_geek;34621158]That's the only way F2P games can get money short of throwing a shit ton of cosmetics into the game.[/QUOTE] I don't care that people can just buy the weapons, but that doesn't mean you need to make NOT buying the weapons a pain in the ass. They could add in all the cosmetic crap they wanted, but as long as it doesn't modify gameplay and is purely cosmetic, I don't really care.
They could just put some skins in. After fixing the weapons.
Raider looks like a fucking boss Also I bought the VIP pack, I have all the dosh etc but no boost - anything on that?
[QUOTE=ZombieDawgs;34621203]Raider looks like a fucking boss Also I bought the VIP pack, I have all the dosh etc but no boost - anything on that?[/QUOTE] If you bought 800Gold to get the VIP, you can buy a few boosters.
Also, the fact that this game's in beta. We should get SOME gold to try out all the weapons and report what's good and bad about them and shit.
also class selection menu is kind of fuckedup, there is no preview anymore, and if as diamond sword you go in the -edit class- menu, it will show up a damn butcher instead of a sandraker
[QUOTE=latin_geek;34621260]Also, the fact that this game's in beta.

I don't think that's an easy balance to achieve.

Shouldn't you iron out all the problems with the game before moving on to ironing out the problems with the business model, though?
Yep. Like weapon balance.
Exactly. They should just unlock everything so we can iron out all the problems, and they can find the players' favorite weapon so they can charge 2x for it when the game comes out.
Holy christ, the Europe servers have massive fucking lag spikes. [editline]9th February 2012[/editline] Also where the hell does it save screenshots.

I play as Maximo13.
I just played 3 or so matches, and none of them gave me XP. At the end of the matches, it said stuff like 600 xp earned, but it didn't update my total
I know what I'm never gonna do again, spend ten fucking bucks on a weapon in a game just to have it nerfed and my money wasted. Oh and I didn't get XP either.
