So, DC has been my favorite game, well, ever. I started playing on launch day and even bought a PS3 for it. I've made some great friends along the way, a number of whom I've hung out with in real life. I've ridden out the game through thick and thin, through all of the revamps, and issues and droughts in content. It was always worth it to play with my pals, to work on my characters and to check out whatever new stuff came down the pike. I have six characters at endgame with my main at 460 SPs. It's not worth it anymore. For me, it started with the frequency of Time Capsules. The asks of players on top of all their other spending has become, to me, out of control. This is compounded by the event around TCs last year that upended the in-game economy and resulted in billions and billons in ill-gotten goods forever changing the broker for the average (or even hardcore) player. The seasonals, once a fun distraction, have turned into grinds with, again, huge asks from the community. The St. Patrick's even in particular was structured such that you couldn't miss more than a couple days and still get what was needed to finish off feats. The art team is absolutely killing it and that continues to be a bright spot in DCUO. However, the content, especially JLD, has left me cold. Waiting nearly five months between DLCs is too long imo and worse yet, we were delivered a raid that demanded that players partake in platforming-- a notoriously divisive game style that many avoid like the plague. The abrupt changes to Supercharges due to people finding exploits, abusing them, reaping the rewards of them then complaining about them left many users who'd spent their time and money on leveling SC-related artifacts out in the cold. This change was made quickly with no apparent consideration around players' concerns even as other outliers such as flurry shot and some power sets remain way out of whack. And finally, the OP back. Which brings us full circle on one of the key issues at play here. The in-game economy has grown to weigh very heavily on progression. All of those billionaires who profited from last year's TC controversy and the speed hackers that have proliferated in game are able to have and control components of acquiring the OP back (in addition to acquiring styles and SPs from TCs which formerly could be gotten much more reasonably through a combination of opening some TCs and playing the broker). It's impossible to keep up with and drags the whole game down for all of the honest players. Adding to all of this is what often feels like an unnecessarily antagonistic attitude from some on the team toward the players. With all due respect, we're your customers and snarking at us, though I'm sure satisfying in the moment, is not a great look. We deserve your respect as much as you deserve ours. So after playing from Day 1, I'm done. I uninstalled the game. I'll miss my in-game friends, I'll miss my toons, I'll miss some gameplay. But I won't miss the increasingly toxic environment and spending real money while cheaters laugh their way to the bank. TL, DR: Day 1 player has had their last straw. And no, you can't have my stuff.
