[PC Gamer] Payday 2 gets microtransactions, despite devs saying it wouldn't - Page 4

post #31 of 39
Agree with Iceblade saying you can still access the DLC maps without having them which is cool, and they also add decent free content too so we can't really complain that they're making all these DLCs in the end, because even if you don't buy them, Overkill is making money, and injecting more money in the game so it gets better and better and we get free maps..(not many games does that ahem..) that being said, this is also quickly becoming one of the most milked games of all times lol.

We've read a lot of your feedback. We're aware that there are those of you who are unhappy or concerned about the Black Market update. Once Crimefest and all its content is out we’ll discuss this with you along with the other new features that were added. While we usually get back to you straight away when you have feedback, right now we’re busy as hell making sure we finish all the content we prepared on time.

TL;DR: We're busy, talk to you later!

As a long time fan of payday, I want to point out that not only did they lie about micro transactions, but the skins have stat boosts on them. That effectively makes the game pay-to-win. Imagine if an M4 Howl had +5 damage on it in CSGO...

I don't care if people want to waste all their real money on skins, but don't give them a gameplay advantage over me, even in a PVE game.

An interesting history lesson.

Some of the example of what have they done so far and why we see fires and angry people everywhere in the forums.

But that's not the same. +5 damage in a player vs player game would be unthinkable. No way to possibly justify that. This, on the other hand, is player vs computer. It's you against the AI, not other human players. Therefore, if just a single player in your crew has a better weapon, all players in that heist benefit, full stop. This same player also does not gain an unfair advantage over another human player and, as it stands, the game is very asymmetrical anyway, so stat boosts to weapons don't really change or "(un)balance" it too much.

That in a nutshell is why I refuse to buy or even play Payday 2. It's also why I suspect a lawsuit will be coming in the future months.

So apparently drills now are in the card drop cycle, but the option to purchase a drill hasn't been removed either. Stats are still on the weapons too, there was nothing in the changelog about skin stat changes.
