    Buying a game with things you don't have to pay for or any battlepass system? hide the cosmetics behind beating the pve on the hardest difficulty

    Zoomers are fucking ruined. Everything has to have a Battlepass or it's "no fun" "no objective". What ever happened to having fun in a game.
    Even fucking CS:GO Zombie servers are implementing Battle pass systems as the playerbase has requested it so much. Literally what the fuck... You know that game where you hide in a corner for 5 minutes deffending from zombies? Yeah that game has a battlepass now.

    You buy the game once and that is it. No games as a service model or matchmaking system. If you want to play with others you hop on a privately hosted server and that's the end of it.
    If there must be cosmetics, tie them to achievements/overall rank like halo 3 armor unlocks.

      So no post launch content at all? I mean you cant expect them to work for free.

        They're still selling the game aren't they? Terraria can do it, Stardew Valley can do it, I see no reason why billion dollar corporations couldn't

        This is gonna shock you but the games industry did perfectly fine up until around 2010 without this shit. They still made money hand over fist. You're just a dipshit who won't stand up for yourself.

          They didnt, they patched the game to work up to next piece of paid content. And when thats out they drop the game and move to the next game. Still better than milking a game for decade though.

          Dumb zoomer. Pre-2010 there was little to no post launch content, and going further back patches were often were sold to you as expansion packs. Never mind that it costs a lot more to build a game nowadays. Back then we had dozens of companies on almost equal footing with EA or Blizzard, the difference was not in production value so much as in how many IPs they churned out. Nowadays there's maybe 5-7 big companies that still manage to consistently release something with AAA production values. Not that things are better today, it's actually exactly the same except instead of expansion packs and yearly sequels you pay for passes, and just like 10 years ago the companies want to garden gnome you out of as much money as possible.

    I blame the cancer Mercy event. They disguised the first paid skin as a charity reward. Once they introduced the concept, they started pushing OWL with its paid skins and emotes.

    It's obviously why they made OW2 instead of a big update, they changed it to the ol' zoomer scamming system.
    They should've done this right from OW1, but they still had a shred of integrity before.

    Holy fuck that UI is so insanely SOULLESS. Everything in OW2 seems to be a gigantic step back from OW1.

    fucked up
    Open up the game to community-made content and the devs can fuck off. TF2 thrived off of what the community made. Blizzards older games did too, but they're still bitter that dota blew up and now they refuse to give the community any autonomy withing their games.

    Have not followed what happened because I stopped playing ow years ago but it looks like fall guys since epic bought them. You bought the game and had access to everything and could unlock the best costumes with crowns but now you can play the new season but need a season pass to unlock the costumes and the best ones need a new currency and you barrely get any so if you want a cool new costume you need real money
    Fuck all these people for ruining everything for money

    Remember when winning or losing was the point of multiplayer games? Now, it's all skins to show off to other people. What the fuck happened?

      Devs identified another exploitable aspect of the human psyche, first shooting games at all sold to let people take out their aggression and frustration they couldn't take out in civilized society, now that is just an excuse for a social platform where everyone is women on a coffee meetup bragging about their designer handbags and the status they bring them

    Only tards fall for cosmetics. Heroes of the storm die enjoy your cosmetics now on a dead game sure was worth spending money on it lul.
    Same will happen with this trash game because blizzard cant make a proper mm system to save they life. Watch good players getting punished again for being good and be matched with absolute shitters and be forced to play the meta char of the week and hard carry them if they want to win. No fun allowed in blizzz games if your good. Memeber when this shit was so bad it Heroes of the storm that top 100 or so where literally ignoring ranked and where playing custom games among themselfs imagine how bad things really are. Same shit comming soon to you via OW2

    Pay for a game once and have everything unlocked at once.
    There is no excuse to having to unlock anything in a game you paid for. Everything else is a scam, that only complete drones can't see and feel a need to defend.
