Micro Transactions and Lootboxes! It gets worse?!?!

When will this sh*t end? I thought the Starwars or Shadow of Mordor was bad, this is just freaky. Instead of match making to put players with even skill, this is the opposite. 

 

"For instance, the microtransaction engine may match a more expert/marquee player with a junior player to encourage the junior player to make game-related purchases of items possessed/used by the marquee player. A junior player may wish to emulate the marquee player by obtaining weapons or other items used by the marquee player."

 

so they put a good player, with a newbie, to kill him alot, then flash an add at the newbie, to make him think its all in the gun, so he can buy it and be just as good? Wait theres more...

 

"For example, if the player purchased a particular weapon, the microtransaction engine may match the player in a gameplay session in which the particular weapon is highly effective, giving the player an impression that the particular weapon was a good purchase. This may encourage the player to make future purchases to achieve similar gameplay results."

 

Thats some seriously manipulative sh*t there. They claim that they have not done it yet, but they also are not obliged to tell us weather it is in there or not, so we just have to trust them. Haha


Total War: Warhammer

Such a great game! Im loving playing as the Greenskins atm, I have dabbled in the other factions but keep coming back to Grimgor Ironhide! 

I was looking at mods, and wondering if you guys had any recommendations from Steam Workshop?

Also, any stand out DLC that you recommend? I only have the Free stuff atm, but Im waiting for a sale. 


For the Moderators! Thanks!

Thanks for cleaning the crap out of this place every day, multiple times a day. It must be such a pain in the @$$. Not sure why all the spam lately but it can be very annoying to just see, let alone have to clean it up. 

So again, Thanks.

GOG games and a MAC

03 May 2017 - 04:54 PM

Hey guys I was wondering if KoToR from GOG would work on mac even though it lists it as windows platform where steam lists it as windows and mac. I have noticed this on a lot of games.
Or do I have to just buy the steam version?
Thanks
