Can you play without this purchase? No , ergo you are paying for the game.

The game is planned to release 'free-to-play'. Should you want entrance to the late Beta (referred to as Early Access by Steam) then you will have to buy some micro-transaction items.


Alternatively you can wait for the game to release and play it for free then.

If they expect us to pay 40 bucks for a game upfront it should have zero micro transactions.Reply

Technically, you're paying for a load of loot from the store. They aren't charging you money for early access to a free game (per se).

A PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds player was falsely banned for stream snipingA PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds player was falsely banned for stream sniping

It's fairly obvious what Bluehole and PU care about, and that's the dollaroo. Streamers bring in players, and viewers, which all adds up. If they piss off a streamer, then they lose that viewership.
So they'll believe anything that comes out of their mouths. Insta-banning without due process is proof of this.

What's worse is that they have clearly accepted that the report system is being abused by streamers. While they actively get their viewership to report players, Bluehole and PU are accepting it.

How can they have those rules in place? Allowing streamers to abuse the reporting system, while systematically banning anyone that they do report?

Hardly a fair way to handle players. Giving streamers higher privileges in their game, while the regular player gets shitted on if they are unlucky enough to land in a server with a child-streamer who throws his mouth off whenever he gets killed.

Yes exactly but i think the point they are making is that but he is probably like a black man of Gondor or something to make it more inclusive not an enemy haradrim working for the Dark Lord. Obviously at the time Tolkien was writing Lord of the rings he was mostly writing it from perspective of an English man of that time. All that political correctness we have now is something that he would never have thought of.

I just hope that whatever they do makes sense. Like a story of a Southron trader or mercenary who travels to Gondor for x,y,z and then gets swept up in to the events. Or better yet a Haradrim who doesn't just follow along with the rest of his culture. The hope is that they actually make him have an interesting story, not just paint a Gondorian black as if though they're hitting quotas.


Taking a check list approach without much rhyme, reason or development to the characters is, in my opinion, a disservice if the goal is to incorporate/include. This dude getting a full DLC based around him is a good indicator that Monolith is on the better track.

Nice to see they arent making exceptions a lot of streams act like spoiled children or outright assholes because they think if they are a minor internet celebrity they can get away with anything.

From what I heard PVP in wow right now is a mess, in theory everything being standardized is great, however they balance things wrong. If say Blood Death Knights are doing too much damage they'll dump their strength, however that is what their survivability is based on so they'll become more fragile when it was only their dps that was too high. It's stuff like that, that completely undermines the whole purpose of standardized stats in the first place.

Pvp in wow has been a mess since after we left vanilla which was the only time when it was more or less balanced. All this pvp gear and fancy new stuff they did is just fubar. If it aint broke dont need to reinvent the wheel.

The real question that needs to be asked whether you can sail a ship. Black Flag was by far the best AC they done.Reply

Considering how annoying and bland he is i dont think most players will get anywhere close to finding that fact out. Most people i know avoided talking to him.

Is the Chinese court system so corrupt they blatantly ignore blatant copyright infringement like this? Its not just copying art assets or inspired by content its outright theft of the entire game.

Dota 2 review snippet How's your Russian coming along?
The game focuses too much on inventory management rather than actual gameplay. IF you want a good moba play Heroes of the Storm it goes away with gear and focuses on actual team play.
