Yes, you're right. I am being totally selfish here talking about GPUs. I just miss affordable hardware! ;)
And your point about the gambling element, and massive risk, involved in lots of the advertised schemes is totally correct. It looks like the main reason Google and Facebook have pulled the rug out from under the crypto ads.
The game is not going to ever come out he already has your money and you can do nothing about it! Which is why I am playing Elite Dangerous Horizons!
You do get free stuff for playing the season, you just get more stuff by having the Battle pass.
I haven't returned to the game in quite some time, and the last time I played was during one of the early Closed Beta builds where only PvE existed. I bought into it to get a key as well.
The game was definitely in Development Hell. They redesigned mechanics and progression systems repeatedly. I'm not sure if they were butting heads in the studio or just couldn't develop forward progress or what, but I do know they rarely took player feedback into consideration. The forums were abysmal.
Despite all of that, the game was quite fun. It was beautiful, and ran beautiful with its optimization. I think it could have stood on its own had they opened it up more to the public before they shamelessly copied the Battle Royale mode.
I just can't bring myself to play it again. What's more, they had a ton of limited time events with loot you most likely won't be able to get again. Missing out on that stuff kind of kills my drive to play for some reason.
What, you don't want 65-inches of bland pumped into your eyeballs at 120Hz? ;)
