TL;DR Sell a product with an Alpha pay2win PvE that's worse than SW BF II and has more grind than any f2p game(even though it's p2p) including asian MMO's, collect all the money that the player base spent on the PvE which doesn't even have an end game, then screw over all the PvE players and create a Battle royale mode better than every other one on the market and forget the PvE ever existed.Reply

Basically this.


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.

Gotta keep those money fishies on the hook with tweets before they jump ship, can't wait to read their next post in 6 months about how they "are going back to the drawing board, listening more and changes will happen".

Fortnite is surpassing PUBG in every aspect, this is proved by PUBG Xbox launch, unfinished, unoptimized mess, just like the PC version.Reply

I think it's actually pretty pointless to even compare those two even though they have a tedious "history". They are clearly aimed at different audiences. I love PUBG and I tried Fortnite but it was quickly evident that it won't ever have any appeal to me. Still interested in it's original PvE mode though.

I don't mind spending money to support the devs after the initial release, that's why my most played games are PoE, Warframe, GW2. But there I'm supporting them because I can see what I'm buying and they not trying to exploit every last inch of money out of my pocket with gambling tactics. You correct microtransactions shouldn't be a problem. BUT because this stuff is in loot boxes and not in the game it is a problem. And all of the ways this article explains how the devs are cheating players out of there rewards is lying and stealing from the players.

Path of Exile does have a loot box, one you cannot earn in game with armor sets you cannot get without gambling.


Destiny 2's loot box is cosmetic only and can be earned for free in game. - This is fine as players who do not buy microtransactions are not hampered by that choice and even get to experience the cosmetics.


Battlefront 2's loot box can be earned for free in game, but grants items that significantly change gameplay. - This is not okay as content is behind paywalls in addition to the original cost of the game.


Path of Exile is a completely free to play game with constant significant updates. Some microtransactions do heavily improve in game content, but the majority do not. There are expensive loot boxes that lock cosmetic only items, but this is to incentivize big spenders to support the game. - This is fine.


Hearthstone is free to play but few free to play players will get to experience the game to it's intended effect without major time encumbrance. This major disadvantage to F2P players was made worse with the cards locked behind "Adventures" however the studio has stopped creating these. The game is still extremely unfriendly to F2P players although it has been proven to be 'possible' to play for free. The game requires significant time and money commitments (Completing quests every 3 days and a minimum of $50, 3 times per year for "preordering") to maintain a powerful collection. - This is controversial.
