While I understand this, I think it’s just a little off-putting to sidestep gameplay all because of cosmetics, since they made up the bulk of the DLC. Then the only DLC hunters that I could see this applying to were T4 where at their release they were all OP.
But that’s like saying that you won’t buy a modern car because it has the option for paying for satellite radio.
I don’t see how it puts you at a disadvantage. The Skin was included in the pre-order but not the base game after launch.
It going F2P came out of the blue, not a months head notice where seller stocked up on editions of legacy. While it does put those F2P players at a disadvantage, it honors those who supported the game via buying a copy or being a loyal player.
If TRS wiped it for all, it would have shut down a lot of the hardcore players who put hundreds of hours and cash in the game. I can’t name another studio that went F2P or honored it’s playerbase.[quote=“Gimboid, post:70, topic:109430”]
Just the very fact that I gave turtlerock 69.99 and a month or so later they were saying "hey, you want this cool new content? (hunters), you can have it for 25! made me close the door on the studio for the rest of my life.
At that point the game was already dead, so sellers needed those copies sold in order for their investment, TRS had no say in the pricing of the game, other than the steam store which kept it at $40 if I recall correctly. [quote=“Gimboid, post:70, topic:109430”]
I loved L4D, and I really enjoyed Evolve, but at the point TRS started demanding I pay more money to gain access to more content
Because that content was expensive to produce, Someone stated above that a new monster costs around $250,000 to make. Then once T4 and T5 were done, they worked on free content, the variations. If they were the greedy bastards people made them out to be they would’ve kept on trucking through the $40 addon content. [quote=“Gimboid, post:70, topic:109430”]
nor anything made by this studio ever again. (I am a strong proponent of speaking with your wallet)
But once again, it’s not totally TRS’s fault. 2K did have strings on TRS, and thus they pulled out of Stage 2. TRS had little leeway with the publisher, and so you can’t blame them for everything.
And it’s one thing to hate a game off gameplay, but with your wallet is totally unnecessary. Gaming is about the experience, not the money you shell out of your paycheck. If money matters that much to you then you shouldn’t be playing games.
Not to mention, name 1 business that doesn’t need nor want it’s customers’ money. This is Corporate America, and unfortunately businesses don’t care about you, but thats why I love TRS, because they could’ve followed that trend by not releasing Stage 2, or not having our progress carry over. TRS does care about this community and the game Evolve. They had high hopes for it but shit got in the way, I don’t know what else to tell you.
