@Kronoso: Right, right. It's not like those are things you could've prevented yourself if you wanted to, right? Name change, faction change, race change. Yeah, it's not like YOU could've chosen the other race.
@Grouchy.Otaku: I'm sorry, but I didn't fork up $60 (Many people paid much much more), and continue to pay $15 a month for them to release TONS of content that I need to pay even MORE for.
MMO's have 2 general categories.
- Free to play, with the option to purchase many things for money.
- Paid subscription, with few/no paid DLC.
Cryptic seems to have combined those, paying monthly AND for content. They've made it completely clear they're in this for nothing but the money. They released the game unfinished (Clearly) and with DLC ON LAUNCH DAY. That means they intentionally left things out of the game so they could get money for them after we've already paid for the game. They then proceed to release more Paid DLC than ANY OTHER PAID MMO within the first 5 months. INCLUDING The pre-order/limited/deluxe/special edition items that people paid FAR MORE MONEY FOR BEFORE-HAND.
