Why do I have to buy this game?

lotro, swtor, star trek online, gw2, eso... Im sure there are more. APB also but it is more of a shooter.

GW2 and ESO are not FTP. (The Free demo for gw2 is not really f2p.)

As for the rest, how are they doing now?

 they are all on their last  breaths. Wildstar is the only one that was able to flourish as F2P.

I wasn't aware $30 was considered a pay wall by anyone with even just a welfare check. Steal some from Dad's wallet.

go mow some damn lawns man, or wait until your birthday/christmas, do chores around the house ask your parents for an allowance, sell some stuff you dont use anymore.. I dunno what to tell you, the b2p keeps p2w out of the game, i wouldn't play the game if it was p2w. 30 dollars shouldn't be too hard to come by man.

haha... Lilitrix doesn't understand that this game was designed to be fully FTP relying on the cash shop

Morning.  Honey, for someone who does not understand much, you really talk too confident about understanding.

The Korean servers are F2P sure. But they are also P2W which is a horrible game breaking state. Be happy this is B2P which means its more balanced and keeps the whiny 12 year olds away.

This version is P2W as well. Only real difference between this and KR version is fact KR version does not hide fact this game is P2W and does not put entry fee.

Overall I would prefer KR model.

I seriously need to ask! How many trolls are on these forums :o all i see is Worst game i ever played and Why is it B2P, it should be F2P, these people CLEARLY do not have any MMO experience, i have played SWTOR for many years and also Lineage 2 for some years and some other MMO's but not for long. And this game has had one of the smoothest launches ever, the CM's really care and offer apology gifts for minor screw ups. I'm in a raid high end raid group in SWTOR and for the last 2 months if not more, all AOE attacks form bosses look like they are pointing one way but in reality are pointing in a different way. And this BioWare dont really care about and dont even offer an apology, just formal shit about they are looking in to it. Last patch they didm we subs payed for 2 days of Early access, they where 8 hours late, did we get even a sorry. NO yet alone any gift! And also, SWTOR is advertised as an MMO but it cant handle 16 players in the same raid / pvp arena without lag and problems. So no this game is a -----ing saint!

There would be "premium" option if it was f2p which would cost you more money for similar features of the b2p.. 

so yea b2p is always better in the long run over f2p

 

Now all we need is outfits dropping to 10-15 Euros and BDO's future will look even brighter.

Not sure where this goes, so I'll stick it here.

I signed up a few hours ago, and I am just now finally able to confirm my account. Only to find out I have to BUY the game. WHY? The Korean version is free. I was really excited to finally be able to play this game. Now? Now I'm disappointed. The devs have a lot of nerve...... Years of development, gamers everywhere on pins and needles, stalking their favorite update sites, and now you have to buy the game.

And don't give me that crap about I'm just mad I don't have money to buy it. While yes, most people don't, I don't think it's fair to put a price tag on a game unless it's supposed to be pay to play, everyone knows there are plenty of subscription MMOs. Founder's Packs, are fine, I can deal with that. But to put that as a Pay Wall just to get the game, not cool.

 

I can only hope the game becomes available for free. But I'm not going to hold my breath.

this is a massive problem with gamers these days, do you know all the work the dev put into the game is worth nothing to you? to be honest games should NEVER be free, no one should enjoy someone elses work for free

They still really need to make a game purchase a requirement to use the Forum.

Cash shop items were reduced as far as I can tell. It was costing me 50usd a costume in Korean version, as opposed to 30 now.

A company spends a ton of money to develop the game for the NA / EU release, a heap of money for the infrastructure and then you want it for free? A one off charge, never pay another single cent if you do not want to and you are whining? Let me guess, mummy and daddy wont give you their CC?

 

 

as much as I'd like to think so, I think they actually used nothing and spent their time (and money) translating shit over using Google translator.  So many bugs present too.
