And yet consoles needs "subscribtion fee", also known as XBL and PS+ *sigh*
If they remove those, then yes, its a one-time-purchase f2p.

But it is not free to play. One-time purchase negates free to play. Take it up with Sony and M$ if you do not like paying for online gaming.

Plus a new "Elder's Scrolls" game without Jeremy Soule is like a Crash Bandicoot game without Naughty Dog or Spyro the Dragon game without Insomniac Games. I simply won't buy or play it ever.

I bought this at launch...game is beautiful. Great atmosphere and fun gameplay. Pity class balance is abysmal and story is thin. Granted I've not played in months, but, it just seems sick and wrong that to attain effective dps (for nightblade, dragon knight and sorcerer): you're wearing all cloth gear, putting everything into magicka and using a resto staff. Otherwise, gameplay is solid, dungeons and raids are challenging and fun.

So it's essentially the Guild Wars model now. You still have to buy the game. Does the game have a cash shop yet? If not now then soon.

Dem micro transactions are where it's at

Jeremy Soule did compose it, alongside with someone else.

That's a hell of a description, haha.

... and also what has essentially killed many genres and game series.

I'm surprised they don't go the old Guild Wars model and just release a $60 game/expansion every 6 months and claim no monthly fee required.

Not even free trial for couple of days? No thanks

    rayy @Tiz: Agree. People want to punish others well implement methods because of EA stupidity. (42 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz EA lost their minds and went full greed. $60 buy-in with P2W microtransactions, and an unholy grind? I'm not surprised by the pushback but it's impossible to tar everything with the same brush. (47 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz If you don't have the time but want the stuff, then you pay. If you do have the time and want the stuff, then you grind. (50 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I think this whole thing is being blown out of proportion. EA over-stepped with BF2, but the method to unlocking stuff in most games is fine based on a time vs money scenario. (51 minutes ago)

    droezelke This is a stupid move by ESA. They are now distancing themselves more and more from their customers. They are spitting in their faces. Apparently the signal to EA wasn't clear enough. (1 Hour ago)
