    Challenger level perks and not losing a level is definitely not garbage

    These should have been new veteran awards.

    Whomever is in charge of decisions at this company, and made this decision .... don't let them make decisions any more.

    This is like the canary in a coal mine of a game and a company about to flush themselves down a toilet.

    If y’all don’t like them, then don’t buy them. This is light years away from paying to win. Darkpaw is a for profit company, don’t be shocked when they try to make a profit.

    Im all for them making money, but this should be so much more than something i can live without.

    I fully don't support this...

    What is this a Petri Dish to see how we 'feel' about the topic??

    This IS EXACTLY a pay to win introduction. Everyone should be treated equally.

    I am disapointed in this executive decision.

    IF this game becomes a pay to win, I won't be playing anymore.

    I experienced this BS with War Robots. No thank you.

    Make these free for gold accounts, and pay for it on ftp accounts.

    Krono is already pay to win. You can exchange real world money for in game currency and buy items that are tradable. It's particularly nasty on TLPs like Mischief.

    No, this should not be an open discussion on what is fair ..

    100% pay to win = NO ..

    No is no. not in EQ.
  10. Veteran_BetaTester PIZZA!

    Everyone can buy a krono. Everyone can earn plat and buy a Krono from someone in game. A teanager plaing EQ can buy a Krono for 2.1+Million plat.
  11. Celestian Elder

    If only the game restricted you from buying krono only in game huh? It doesn't. Suggesting people "Earning plat and buying KR" is remotely like purchasing the same currency with cash is a fantasy. Not to mention you literally were complaining about pay to win and you can literally do it with KR.

    EQ is lost.

    You should have included all of this in all access monthly bundle and just increased the cost by 2 dollars. We understand there is inflation and you have to earn more money, but doing it this way appears to be trying to rip off your customers.

    The marketing team really should've looked at how you guys presented this.

    There are blatant P2W aspects of these perks and should be given to everyone that subscribes monthly.

    The entire point of a subscription model MMO is that everyone pays one price and is on equal footing. When you start allowing people to pay a premium for in-game advantages it cheapens the experience for everyone. These are the kinds of predatory practices you expect to see in cash grabbing mobile games that capitalize on addiction, not established MMOs. Competition should be through gameplay mechanics, not a contest to see who's willing to pay the most money.

    Grants access to twelve-slot trader’s satchels.
    - I never fill the ones I have now.

    Enables an additional slot in your inventory.
    - with 40+ slot bags, Dragons Hoard and Alt's banks to fill I never run out of room with what i have now.

    Adds a 10% chance bonus* to gain skill points in crafting skills.
    -I'm maxed already in the ones I care about

    Loyalty vendors, such as Alerynril the Loyal, will provide a 10% discount on loyalty items.
    - Gee now if they only had something worth buying on them.

    Your mercenaries will gain experience 10% more quickly.
    - Let me introduce you to the Overseer Quests, you max out on merc AA's VERY quickly using them.

    You won't lose a level when your character falls in battle.
    I think last time this happened to me was when i got caught in a death loop in Fear in 1999. (back in the days when clerics were expected to bind in the zone)

    Gain a 5% experience bonus that multiplies with other experience bonuses you earn.
    Really? 5% you would have to maintain a spreadsheet of your exp to notice the difference .

    Rake in 10% more coin from your kills.
    Well at least coin has no weight now, but I don't think this would be noticeable either, not to mention already have millions of plats in the bank, having 1,100,000 wont make or break me

    Earn 10% more alternate currency from modern raids.
    nice now i will have 10% more raid coin that will rot as I have nothing to spend it on by the end of the expansion, now if they had made raid coins tradable to alts that may have been something interesting.

    Think ill pass ....

    Like I said, don't be part of the petri dish on an experiment on the Pay to Play thread.

    I guess we just better budget better with our cash. :eek:

    This is pay to win stuff. So sad. Who at the office chat thought this would be a good idea? "We'll give them more veteran reward, but we'll call 'em Perks and charge them extra for it."

    <shakes head>
  17. Bobokin Augur

    They want players to pay monthly, pay for expacs, pay extra for collector's expacs, pay through the nose for the uber expacs, pay for loot boxes full of mostly old stuff and booby prizes, and pay for new "pay to win" Perks. Got it.
  18. Slasher Augur

    What exactly is pay to win in here guys ? Come on be real.

    Right? If we're going down that road make it juicy enough for me to be enticed.

    I would buy if the bundle unlocked 15th and 16th character slots, so I could have one of each race/class on my account. maybe make the 2 perk bundle unlock a character slot, and 3 perk bundle unlock a second.

    Or make one more slot available from loyalty/dolls of character each.

    I really want 16 slots bad.
