These CashShop Items Had Better Not Exist


32 posts in this topic

Posted

  1.                 Energy/Labor potions that grant more points or buff regen or anything

  2.                 Items that increase chance for successful blackstone enchants

  3.                 Items that lowers chance to drop gems/trade packs/lose exp on death

  4.                 Items that increase chance to get rare drops/harvests/exp (might waver on exp)

               

Your CashShop had better only be cosmetic outfits, horse skins, pets, furniture, or the like and not grant any stats(it’s bad enough you’re selling inventory space FFS). Do not shoot yourself in the foot please.

 

If you have other items you can think of that don’t belong in a B2P game, please reply with them. If you disagree with the first three bullets then you can jump off a bridge… ;)

I just want to point out (at the risk of derail) how you mention capitalism like it's bad. Thank god for it for without it, you wouldn't be on these forums in the first place! ;)

 

To your larger point though, they did make this B2P, so that's why I made this post.

They've said multiple times they don't want P2W and are going to avoid it.

There's a reason our version of Buy2Play. I wouldn't worry about it.

P2W is open to interpretation therefore I've listed specific items that I don't think belong in this game.

I wouldn't worry so much about it. it's B2P, and even the F2P versions isn't as bad as some other games - yes enchanting goes way easier on ru if you buy stuff and sell on marketplace for cash to buy black stones - but still not the worst i've encountered.

Is the enchanting system the same as in archeage's Regrading system? RNG based?

Why do you think I've played AA ;O

I haven't played it, so no idea if its similar, but yes enchant is RNG based after +7 for wep and +5 for armor, which is safe.

It is RnG based but it is infinitely more forgiving at +16 and above the worst thing that happens is you lose an enchant like degrading in AA but you don't lose two ranks or more i think, and until plus +16 you just lose 10 durability from your weapon which can be put back by any blacksmith. Plus there are safe enchants to +5 for armor and +7 for weapons.

As for enchanting, I don't mind if someone buys a costume and sells it on AH for some silver and then buys blackstones. That's not an issue. What I don't want is there to be an item that increases your chance to succeed when using the blackstone. If there is such an item, then they could ----- with the hidden RNG numbers and make it so you have to purchase this item. It is really just shady as hell without any transparency and is a pure P2W element. It isn't currently part of NA as I understand and I sure as hell don't want it to be. 

So if you feel the same way, then gimme some support!

Ahh sounds great, i found BDO to be an alternative for the failure of archeage. But i havnt quite understood the weapon system. Do you get assigned 1 weapon which u need to lvl up? or do you achieve higher lvled weapons as you progress in the game which u rank up/enchant.

I believe there is a post somewhere on the forums...

AH! Here it is. . .

It's a link to the recent interview they had with the marketing rep, he states in there they are not looking to have a P2W system.  At around 2:00 minutes in he states that they were not moving towards a P2W or P2P audiences. (Just in case you wanted more info.)

Thanks for sharing that on this thread for those who may not be aware. I however am aware of these comments and they don't amount to a hill of beans with regard to the content of my initial post.

 

Again, focus on the specifics I'm outlining here and not the general comments that are made here or there. It may give a warm and fuzzy that they've said that, but every developer says that and if they believe they can get away with it at some point then it may happen. Let you voice be heard if you don't want these things in the cash shop.

I agree with all of it. I don't want to see any of that stuff in this games shop. I purchased the conqueror's package and will probably get most costumes, so they'll get my money that way.

they said they would be selling convenience upgrade only, so when they stated that they would be selling increases to the bag space i sorta assumed that they would also have some way to expand bag space using in game currency but that you could unlock them faster if you just bought the slots off the store (i really hope they don't lock the slots away behind a pay wall. that would be the opposite of tuning the cash shop for an NA release.
