    As all of you know, ive been following this game pretty closely. I want you all to know though, that if the cash shop ( which I dont believe in if your paying a sub) is anything more than cosmetics, I wont be playing. I dont play pay2win games (again sub+Cs is stealing). If the preorders and the gouging is any indication, this will not be my game.

    I I'm conflicted about this game...it looks really good, but it's Funcom. After how bad they burned people with Age of Conan I'm not sure I can ever touch one of their games again.

    It's official! See your ass in TERA Tromin! You can't back out now as you have promised. Tenacious members never break a promise. Don't be that guy...

    You specifically promised to play. Now you are trying to back out? Think again, sir. Go ahead and purchase it. Now.

    Devs have made multiple posts and promises that the cash shop will only be clothing and convenience items. which is fine with me. GW2 gonna have cash shop also. only thing close pay2win in it will be 1 hour exp pots. which really wont help ya. You get deleveled to the zone/area you are in.

    Nah dont get me wrong Tingle, Cash shops are fine, if thats the business model. What I dont agree with is Cash shops with subs. Even cosmetic items leave a foul taste in my mouth, but I can deal with that. Its the xp, crafting items, ect that are cash store items in a sub game that piss me off.

    I agree.. if your using a subscription based business model, then there really shouldnt be ANY kind of cash shop. Your ALREADY paying for the stuff you should be able to acquire in the game

    I disagree ... when you pay for a hooker, you can pay to upgrade to a whole lot of things ...

    I just looked over their pre-order pricing and in-game store stuff. I can tell you just looking at it I will NOT be playing this game.

    only things I see in the cash shop are. clothes. one time use bank bot, repair bot, salvage kit, resurect orb. then 1 hour 10% bonus pots for exp, karma and such. No big deal. And some transmute orbs(let you make an item look like another)

    so im not seeing any play to win stuff really.

    The thing that concerns me isn't so much P2W (which would be even worse) but the fact that they're doing a subscription model, then making you pay for extra character slots (above 3), name reservations, etc. Not to mention the in-game items. No way in hell I'm doing both, or giving money to a company that's being that greedy. Far as I'm concerned, your a sub-based game or you're a F2P, microtransaction based game - trying to do both is just greedy and nickle and diming gamers.

    For a while after Age of Conan I had decided I wasn't going to do Funcom games anymore, but since I have been looking forward to this game so much I decided to give them one last last chance.:p I'm not a fan of cash shops either, but I'm going to give the game a try anyway. Hopefully they stick to cosmetic stuff only.

    Watched it for along time now and after playing the beta, I won't be playing it.

    Seems like Funcom is trying to squeeze money out now, they are doing great after the AoC release. Seems they are not a great MMO company these days to even follow.
