Be thankfull we have microtransactions and not a TCG lottery (SWG)
 
being able to spend $ and know what you are actually getting in game rather than play the e-lottery is very reassuring.

Yeah, WoW does the same thing. The CCG lottery, that is.

TCG, NGE, SWG, SOE, Four acronyms all with 3 letters that bring up much distaste within the MMO community.:eek:

Indeed. If you don't actually play the card game, they have all the drawbacks of microtransactions with none of the good bits.

Agreed, I would take these fluff, for the most part, micro-transactions over a stupid, lame digital CCG anyday. Its even worse for EQ2 where not only do they have a CCG, Legends of Norrath, they've got micro-transactions that add not only fluff items, but also things like xp boost potions and the such. Sony has really turned EQ & EQ2 into a grab bag for cash. It doesn't even seem they actually care about the game itself anymore, they just want to do whatever will make them the most cash the fastest.
