Scared

Post by Goofydoofy »

It is kind of scary how Daybreak is trying like hell to make extra money. I have a feeling this isn't going to go good in a couple years.

So you'd rather they didn't try to make money? I can tell you that would be a quicker way to see the game disappear. I am glad to see them trying new ideas, the hot collector's pack being just one idea i never thought we'd see.

What company isn't trying to make money?

For what its worth eq is going to die every year. Look at last year one rando on reddit says they arent making any more expansions and 75% of the game thinks its true.

When eq dies i stop playing, i just dont see it in the super near future.

This is about where I'm at. I do wonder each expansion whether there will be a next one. But to put it simply I would never have bet on the game lasting THIS long to begin with. In anycase I still seem to have fun playing so hopefully all their new ideas can keep things rolling a while longer.

This is what I was referring too. No, I don't expect them not to try and make money. I just think it seems, to me, a bit desperate selling the above mentioned item.

I'll be playing the game solo in 20 years on some broken down college server. I've still got lots to do.

selling something people have been asking them to do for years is desperation? i'd call that being smart and responsive to the customers.

Just the other day, I was just taking a stroll down the boardwalk and I heard someone ask for it!

All kidding aside, people often ask why they cant buy the old vanity stuff they can't get anymore on the EQ boards. If anyone buys these editions, that means there was a demand. If people will throw you money for stuff that takes no new development time why wouldny you give it to them?

Hell even a few posts above Jhereg seems to want ROF so he can finish the special collection.

Well I was trying to be funny it's not like anybody talks about EQ out In public. But yes every year there's at least a couple of Threads asking why or if they would release or make available previous years extras. I had just replied to one just this past week but But my response was no never . So I was wrong but it was for a newer expansion extra But that they're actually doing it Is a change from past practices.

This. I can't imagine playing another game like this online ever. All the new stuff is utterly uninteresting to me. When I deploy I still replay Elder Scrolls III every time.

Personally I think it makes more business sense for them to release all the items for older expansions as microtransactions. I think a bunch of people would pickup old mounts, illusions, etc. if they were in the $4.99 to $9.99 range each. If you added them up it would be more than a collector edition but also sell easier for the popular items.

Morrowind is a thing of beauty.
