its just crazy how little it takes to make people fly off the rails these days. $40? for a game from blizzard? its not a card game or MMO? make it $100, ill buy, and so will LOTS of others.
$40 is a steal.

The rumor was it would be f2p because at least one Blizzard employee had said it was planned to be free to play. Now it was changed to a $40 game that will likely still end up having the planned microtransations shortly down the line. It is also about the market the game is in, competing with the same style of games that are free to play. Gotta love Activision greed.

Anyway, I think most people are more concerned that the game itself doesn't seem to justify a $40 price tag right now than being mad that they should have free to play games.

what about it doesnt justify $40? im confused about this?

TF2 released with half the content and it was $30, and not made by Blizzard, one of the only companies around who has made nothing but solid games.

$40 is a steal for this, and their reasoning as to why they didnt make it F2P makes perfect sense.

Looks like a free to play game to me. It only has PVP and not much else to do, and the market is overloaded with those already.

what makes it look F2P? i just dont understand what is so F2P about it, and why everyone is so upset about it. one day F2P is the devil and microtrans is cancer, the next its the right thing to do.

its like you guys change your stance whenever you feel like arguing a move a company makes.

lol im so freaking confused by you guys.

What does "it looks F2P to me" even mean???

I remember paying like $60 for Mega Man X on SNES and being ******* psyched as hell to play it.


Now an amazing game that is going to provide literally hundreds of hours of entertainment is coming out and people WON'T PLAY IT UNLESS ITS FREE???

What the hell is wrong with you people.

As much as I don't think it'll hook me like TF2, I don't think it looks free to play. A little cookie cutter maybe, but definitely not F2P. $40 ain't that bad considering it will be big huge in population.

I want to say F2P will mean less hackers but we all saw how that turned out for CS:GO lol. Way more hackers than F2P TF2 ever thought about having, in competitive matches and pubs.
