    FFXIV: Shadowbringers Patch Notes

    So I wish I had listened to you all raving about this game years ago. I saw the new expansion coming out and thought I would give the free trial a go. I've recently purchased the game and expansions and am fairly confident in saying its the best mmo I have ever played and certainly has the best story. Thanks for the tip, I should have listened earlier

    LotRO Dev Halt?

    I kind of think MMOs as we remember them are a dying breed now. I would be surprised if there is another LOTR one after this is over.
  5. I don't actually have an issue with the gambling aspect of lootboxes, I'm an adult, I can make decisions about how to spend my money. If people think kids will end up gambling addicts because of lootboxes then look at their parents for blame first. My only real issue with lootboxes is that, as we see with battlefront, major parts of the game are held behind a grind or a gamble. If you have already spent £60 on a star wars game you certainly would expect to be able to play as Luke skywalker without paying extra or grinding 40-50 hours for it. That annoys me. Limit lootboxes to CCGs and in game cosmetics (see overwatch) and I think they are fine to be honest, I can choose to ignore them. EU won't ban lootboxes, they may look at the age rating of games with lootboxes and probably ask companies to reveal the odds but they won't get banned completely
  6. Levels scale now don't they?
  7. Are loot boxes any different than over the counter collectable cards that people have been buying for decades? Just a question for debate purposes, not a fan of loot boxes invading video games myself, I do however not have a problem with them in CCGs So I think they are fine in games like hearthstone

    Gorgoroth lootboxes additions: new shinies

    I don't blame a business for jumping at an obviously profitable new trend, no matter how much I dislike it, I can understand why when you see games like madden and hearthstone making a fuckton of money out of crates you might try the same thing.

    Gorgoroth lootboxes additions: new shinies

    Lootboxes are here to stay, overwatch, hearths tone, dota, lol, fifa, shadow of mordor, tomb raider, madden... Etc... So many games now with loot boxes or packs, you can't blame ssg for jumping on that band wagon to be honest.

    So these are just cosmetics? Not sure I see how this is any worse than any other micro transaction stuff.
