j/k

Why on earth you consider spending $200 for something that doesn't even offer LTS I don't know.
For the early Foundry access, mainly.

I played both in beta. Nw isn't bad. But the problem isn't with the game (the only issue I have with the game is the ui).
The problem I have is with how the company has changed.

No communication. If communicating bites them lack of communication is worse.
Fluff over story content. Fluff makes them money so how can they justify doing story content?
"Oh that is broken and nobody plays it? Well let's ignore it because it isn't worth our time because nobody plays it".

There is just no way I can invest in that

For real? NWO is doomed for failure...why does PWE want to go there when there are so many great DDO games that are so much better like WOW. You can't compete with it and would be real foolish to invest any money in something that is doomed from the start.

It's not only my opinion but from a vast game community...concentrate on unique games like STO rather than start a failed enterprise (no punt intended).....You will get no money from this clown since that genre nor prospect is not appealing to me either

The other stuff to me is just junk as I dont play those games anyhow. So thanks but no thanks.
After trying NW for a couple of hours during the last Beta weekend, I decided to purchase the $20 dollar pack..., Unfortunately, I never got the 3 items listed during the entire weekend. (I'm waiting to see if they show up this weekend when I sign in.)

$200 could buy ten slightly aged games from Best Buy.

Why in god's name would I want to burn $200 for twenty five tiny digital items?

No way is that going to happen. Zero.

*looks at the other packs on the page*

rofl...

$59.99 can buy you a new recently released game.

$14.99-$19.99 can buy you a slightly aged game.

I do not mind buying a whole game, but this is ridiculous on so many levels.
I just got SKYRIM for $29.00 bucks from Amazon.
(at least I got all the items listed, with this purchase)

If I'm walking by a store window that has something in their display window "On Sale" for $200 dollars and looks like it's worth about $35...

I will most definitely say something out loud and probably laff my ass off as I continue to walk on by.

It kinda-sorta seems at this point that They are not making the dollar quotas They expected...
(at least to me anyway)

It appears that They are attempting to "sweeten-the-pot" in order to increase the number of sales...

That's not a very good sign, especially since what They are adding, doesn't really have anything to do with the actual game itself. It seems to me to be a bit desperate.

Mind you this is just my perception, but if I'm thinking it, there's probably many others also thinking it.

I think you can get free beta keys for the foundry. I saw that on the french subforums. I didn't bother to sign in, because the game itself isn't really story-friendly. See the main quest: go there, kill stuff, come back and get 1k xp and some silver coins. All the game is around killing NPCs, and even if combat is fun there, it's just a very traditional MMO where you level up and farm dungeons. I really think that's all Neverwinter can do.

STO is different, because you have 5 TV series to back you up, and you have such a rich lore. So you should be patient, save your 200USD and get disappointed later.
