Isn't this game F2P anyway? If it is why the hell are they apologizing? They're not selling P2W items and they have to make money somehow.


Dude, you need to read up on this. They were gouging the fuck out of the community for a fucking Axe, you had to buy all 27 or what ever the final total was of boxes at 7 bucks a pop. That come out to about 200 dollars for a fucking axe. Dont fucking defend this type of bullshit.

All I can think of at this moment for accepting an apology is Vader killing Captain Needa.

If only Vader were around to do this to Respawn

Never damned if they'd actually compete on price. Even Uplay does that VS Steam prices.

Anno 2070 CE on Steam 40$ CAD
Anno 2070 CE on Uplay 10$ CAD

Guess where I just bought my Anno 2070 copy? Yep, Uplay.

Still waiting for EGS to do the same thing with games instead of engaging in anti-competitive exclusives which preempt any competition at all ( you can't offer a lower price if you can't sell it ).

When Ubisoft > Epic, something's seriously fucked up somewhere.

Very well stated. Love this!!

Customer: Hi, can you please preload the game so that I can play BL3 at midnight on launch day?

Epic: Hi. Thank you. In answer to your question we have a new look and design coming to your game libraries. The first update in this process will include a "list view" which will display more of your game library on screen at once. You will be able to sort, filter and access games in your library quicker and easier. We want to make navigating to the games you want to play seamless.

Customer: That's nice. But what I really want is BL3 to be ready at midnight on release day. Can you provide that?

Epic: Our new playtime tracking feature is also right around the corner! This feature is a critical piece for self-service refunds. This gives you the ability to precisely track playtime on the games you own and that's important because it helps you determine when you’re eligible to submit for a refund on new game purchases.

Customer: wat. I just want the ability to download a 75 GB game before it launches. Can you please add that?

Epic: Some of you have already noticed that we’ve been rolling out new Epic-hosted videos on store pages.

Customer: You're losing me.

Epic: We rolled out For Honor with an improved installation experience! We reduce the total time to install and the amount of disk space required. We're working on adding this to existing Ubisoft games!

Customers have left chat.

Epic: Another satisfied customer!

Hilariously sad and true.

Yea, I was playing this months ago with a few friends, and we had a great time. went back in yesterday to play because some other friends just bought it on sale for 7 dollars. And all of my progress was gone and my levels on my chars were reset back to level 1. Was so pissed off!!

no idea why they reset the servers and wiped our chars.

Um, this isn't part of the expansion, because I haven't had my char's wiped, or any of my friends who play. That may have been some kind of bug, I'd do a little google searching to figure it out.

The expansion does introduce a new advancement system - Weaves - that have their own progression, talents, gear, etc. It's rather a pain because you basically have to start over, but it's a tier system. Each weave map you run has its own goals and alterations (the first one for example, killed enemies leave brambles that slow you if you touch them). The rewards are kinda meh, there are no chests, but the challenge is to play at the highest difficulty you can and run weaves to the highest tier you can. In the beta my friends and I have managed Weave 28, we've yet to beat 29. We aren't playing on the new difficulty yet either lol.

It absolutely has some issues and isn't as rewarding as the normal game, but the new enemies are great, new events are fun and the weaves keep things interesting. They dramatically changed the balance of most weapons, but the feel was ruined and they reverted a lot of it.

No ideal whats going on, but something definitely wiped my chars back to level 1. Not happy at all about it. Check the forums and no one else seems to be having this issue. Need to put in a ticket I guess.

I looked into the base game with their recent (quite large) sale... But holy hell, are people bashing the update. Wasn't sure I'd get much out of the game as it was, but I steered my $5 or so away due to that.

How many people have been murdered with a video game display or actual game disc vs. how many with guns? Gee, what do you think the stats are on that one?

They are all morons Cutter, they think removing a gun or taking away a game and using it as the scapegoat will fix this problem, the real issues are in the home. It all starts there with the parenting of their kids and discipline. This is the real issue at hand and until its looked into and fix, this will never go way.

He signed no NDA that I am aware of, so any 'secrets' he found were a result of poor security by multiple parties.

Or are you just jumping on the bandwagon to defend one of EGS flagship sellouts? Nah, that couldn't be it...

Watch this video about Mechwarrior 5 and the Bullshit that Epic puled and how the dev of MW5 screwed over the pre-orders and pulled a fast switch on their web page FAQ days before the pre-orders completed. This is the bullshit we are facing and why I will never support EGS.

God this game looks...boring and derivative. I was hoping for a total reboot, a more complex skill system and instead its the same ol'. I thought I really wanted another one of these games but I think I'm just bored of the formula and they don't seem interested in straying from it.

Yea, its the same old formula, you played one, you played them all pretty much. I'm on the fence of waiting this one out until its on steam, not a fan at all of EGS. And I think Ill keep it that way.

People acting like it's the worst game in ages. Jesus, such clickbait. For $25 it was a pretty decent co-op rampage. I enjoyed the main characters/humor, the gunplay, and the level design. Exploding and melting nazis never gets old. The giblets really paint the environment.

I do wish it had more diversified guns, and more reason to keep playing/replay it, but oh well. And supposedly all Wolfenstein games going forward will have MP?

Same here Rhett, People in general are so full of shit, I've gotten to the point of just ignoring their bullshit.

Sorry Quinn, but I guess you didn't play the game long enough to figure out certain weapons do better damage towards certain enemy types, ESPECIALLY WITH ARMOR!! Also, there is an upgrade tree for weapons and modifying them with better damage.

Slick wrote on Aug 4, 2019, 14:20:
Having the whole developer ecosystem for PC coding for one platform is indeed a "win" for devs and consumers. It's redundant to have to develop with older platforms in mind when making software, especially 10 year old operating systems.

Think of it like this:

A developer wants to make a new AAA game for the PS4 or Xbox one, but they HAVE to also support PS3 and Xbox 360. So now the scope of the game will be diminished, texture quality, mesh quality, memory streaming, etc. etc. etc. will be shittier because they have to cater to the lowest common denominator. Any improvements to the PS4/Bbox one version of the game will be window dressing, and will all be extra work for the developers.

It's not exactly a water-tight analogy, but you get the point. Back in the day any software dev would have to make sure their software worked on Win XP, Win 7, Win 8, and now Win 10. It was a fucking mess. Having everyone on one platform, and Microsoft finally getting the memo and not releasing Windows 11, 12 13 etc... is GOOD for both devs and for consumers.

The only bad part will be if they decide on making Windows 11 in 5 years, when they FINALLY have everyone on the same OS version... I believe they promised 10 years of Win 10 without making a new version, they should extend that indefinitely.

This is a really poor comparison. This argument can be said about all of the past OS's by MS. They all went thorough the same revolutions.

EGS threads are the new Star Citizen threads.

Speaking of which, we haven't had one of those in a while...

That game won't ever release, or when it does it'll be absolute shit. I've played the latest build a while back, and there are no words. It was that bad.

Well the latest major release came out about two weeks ago, and a patch is on the way on the test server. Assuming the attempt you're referring to is the one you reported here from the free-fly weekend; from what I remember you saw a visual bug where your suit's eva jets were firing when you spawned (no longer occurs in the current build) and a coffee mug fell through the floor of your room and you called it a day.

Soooo... yeah, point being they don't polish the alpha releases to retail release quality. If you can get over that, I play about 2 - 3 times a week for hours at a time.

No matter how much you polish a turd, its still a turd.

Ending support for one platform so that its users will begrudgingly switch over to the new one is hardly what I'd call a 'win'.

Very true, Microsoft just does not understand this. And I cant understand why they see this is some kind of contest. So stupid!
