Any chance of doing an article on Free to Play MMO's and the downsides of them.

 

Playing them now i can see a lot of advantages and the BIG disadvantages like the PAY Wall features. Like for instance after a certain level the Pay to Win feature comes into it.

 

Playing Startrek Online now its more apparent after lvl50 you need a new ship and the DPS is really high. The only way to get past it is too buy a new ship and items from their Zen Store. Costing about $50 for both or more.

It's something to think about, for at least one of our mags at least :)

 

But I also think there are some upsides, too. Games like World of Tanks have really gotten the pay balance just right, in my opinion.

I'm a fan of the F2P games where the only thing they (players) gain for money is time saving; nothing is impossible, just time consuming.


Wherever you go in life, watch out for Scythe, the tackling IT support guy.

I am thinking about buying the new command ships in STO for 12,000zen which is just under $180 AUD or a 200USD which is just over $260 AUD.

 

It seems FTP games can be expensive if you don't watch the wallet.

I've certainly spent money on World of Tanks and Lord of the Rings online, but I've always felt the value was there.
