News Comments > Blizzard Linux Plans?
10. Re: Blizzard Linux Plans? Jan 7, 2013, 15:28 Granz
 
Go Blizzard and Go Valve move away from Microsoft. I have used Linux for years. It has changed a TON. I would love to move away from the pig that is Microsoft!

Is it me or has this been taking a very long time? Seems like everything I read is F2P coming "very soon".

The whole Lego thing is getting a bit tired.

Except for the fact they are fun and you don't know what you are talking about. Kids will love this forever. This is an excellent idea!

I stopped reading at "I don't even play it". That really is code for "who cares what you say".

I never said the game was bad. As for the "exaggeration", I guess that's the impression I've been getting in various forums regarding their downtime.

That said, you seem awfully butt hurt over some observations that have been taken from internet chatter and soem news announcements.

None of it is scientific... but again, things don't look all that good for the the game (economically), regardless of whether you enjoy it or not.

/shrug

EDIT: And no I don't play it... lack of interest in Star Wars for the most part... nothing personal against the developers. (Well maybe a little against the publisher. )

It's too bad this series is ruined. Multiplayer is some drop in drop out coop mode from the lego games on the Wii. They should be ashamed of themselves.

News Comments > Trion on Free RIFT Transfers
21. Re: Trion on Free RIFT Transfers Jul 5, 2011, 18:31 Granz
 
Dude everyone knows WoW was the first MMO. Don't be silly!








At least when your 18 years old it was the first MMO! Damn you Blizzard ruining everything! Before you we didn't have MMO's we paid for! Oh wait! Yes we did! 15 dollars a month too! Rift will be the next F2P. It was a good game but I already leveled in WoW it's the same thing. The MMO market is boring. I am tired of killing 10 cows for new loot.

Yea Blizzard has had a 'make money any way we can' attitude since WoW hit. It hasn't really ever had any major competition so they could get away with charging a monthly fee and also having microtransactions. On top of that charging twice what the other guys do for things like character name changes or switching servers. I mean now they are seriously considering charging extra for 'premium content'? It's audacious in the least.

But now the days of WoW's absolute dominance are coming to a close, with games like GW2 and SW:ToR on the horizon. They won't be able to rape their customer base much longer and still hold a leading position in the market.

You do know that monthly fees for MMOs were around long before WoW was even an idea on paper, right? $10-$15 was about the standard before WoW was released.

As for microtransactions and charging for services; the "microtransactions" are purely for aesthetic items; mounts, non-combat pets, vanity items that have no impact on the game, most of which have a similar item that already exists in the game that can be obtained freely. The rates they charge for services is kind of ridiculous, but I wouldn't expect things like name/race/server transfers to be free no matter who the company was.

This is a great game. I have never had "the feeling" of an mmo being good after WoW. This one has that feeling. Now if they play their card right they will have something for sure!

I will do PC. But they would be smart to do console. The more money they make the more benefit we get in Expansions ETC...
