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.

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.
