I hate microtransactions, especially in mobile games, where you can easily sink in the price of a proper game and it gets you basically nowhere, you are back to the waiting x hours bullshit gameplay. The best we can do is that gamers completely ignore them. I cry back the Old PSX and PS2 times, where you got a decent content for your money. I will rather pay 5-10 euros for a DECENT game like Infinity Blade 3, then pay for any microtransaction. Microtransaction is the cancer of the game industry and we have to find a cure very soon.
