    free battle passes give some incentive to keep players going, since player retention is a huge problem with the genre

      99% of the worthwhile rewards are in the paid battle passes though. SF6's free battle pass has to be the most pathetic shit I've ever seen.

        >SF6's free battle pass has to be the most pathetic shit I've ever seen.
        Paid as well. Let's just look at this shit.
        >Avatar Gear
        Useless to everyone but your OC Donut Steel. Tekken can brag about making their characters goofy.
        >Photo Frames
        To take pictures. This game really wants to incentivize you to take pictures with npcs and in the battle hub.
        >Wallpapers
        For a phone menu within the game. You can see it a total of two seconds between managing something
        >Emotes
        Fortnite Dances. Someone likes it, probably.
        >Music (Mandatory payment)
        There are only three places to use this. World Tour, Battle Hub, and training mode. Did you want to listen to certain music while playing a match online? Or even locally? Frick you.
        >Titles
        Whatever
        >Stickers
        Useful for your photos and chatting in the Battle Hub. Did you know the Battle Hub exists? Capcom really wants your retention.
        >Game (Paid)
        You're paying $5 for a rom guaranteed.

    people think online counts
    people think skill gap isnt real
    people think combos are fake difficulty
    people think modern controls are good
    people think defense is boring and doesn't take skill
    people think neutral is just spamming butttons
    people think new games are just as hard as older games
    when random pool monsters can beat OG japanese players you know its over
    when Black folk can beat japs you know its over
    fighting games are dead

    As someone who is really good at Tekken I'm really disappointed with this bullshit. They are just trying to milk the tiny fan base as much as possible

    Tekken's the worst since they didn't advertise about it like the others. Bonus motherfricker point to add it after reviews.

    I haven't bought a single fighting game with a season/character/fight/costume pass. I don't know how you homosexuals like it come this far, xTekken looks tame compared to the shitnwe have these days.

    Blame Ark Sys and Namco. TTT2 and Xrd becoming lucrative was the worst thing that could have ever happened to fighting games.

          I can't remember the last time a game broke Ganker so hard. That shit dominates most fightan discussion on this board.

            SF6 did a pretty damn good job of causing a lot of seethe. For a lot of reasons that overlap with Strive too.

      fortnite arguably made them popular. or accelerated how much they've been pushed.

      "noone" isn't a word bro. Also the compendium wasn't considered that obnoxious at the time as it was funding TI and dota2 is free. Even to this day nobody cares if you don't have cosmetics in dota
      Fortnite was what really started this rampant avarice

      The Compendiums had some actual worthwhile shit. Music packs, Map changes, weather, and the skins. Of course then they started getting super greedy by hiding Arcanas and model swaps behind the later levels.

      I thought it was Valve's fault with Dota. I guess Fortnite is the first game that comes to mind when I think "Battlepass", though.

    The issue isn't the cash shop, it's whether what's on the cash shop/battle pass is appealing to the audience.

    I wouldn't mind battle pass and cash shop in these games if they were FREE GAMES.
    Imagine paying 70 fricking bucks for a game and then it has a cash shop.

      You think that's the worst? MMOkeks pay the game, pay a subscription AND get cash shops.

    Doesn't change the fact that you get all characters for free. Also FB was actively sabotaged by ASW and their PC porting partner.

    Is Tekken doing this shit as well where you have to pay a certain amount for In-game currency?

    • 2 weeks ago

      Characters in tekken aren't in battle pass/tekken shop, they are separate and with the season, and you can get them entirely separately, it's not get tekken coins and then spend them to buy the character. You just give money and get the character.
      As for outfits i'm not sure but i don't think so.
