Respawn Entertainment is changing how legendary skins for the Apex Legends Iron Crown limited time event can be earned, after a massive outcry from players who say the current system is too punishing.
So other news EA still doesn't fix the problem and pricing still way over price 20 skin pretty much uhhh no.
Well actually at 20 a skin they're about on par with bethesda's 76 XD
It's not just the $20-ish per skin either. You still gotta play the event for a chance to get the 24 items required to unlock the ability to purchase the stupid axe for $30. It's still not all of the skins and you can't even buy all of the Epic and Legendary skins either. They're on "rotation" every 3 days and there's only a week left in the event. This is the new strategy by greedy AAA developers. Make a game and release it without the initial microtransactions. Wait a few months then release all of the microtransactions after the game has garnered it's "positive" reviews.
Free though innit?
Well it’s a free game what did you expect? I have no leg in the race as I haven’t an have no plans to play this game. I don’t care for battle royale games. Looking forward to borderlands 3.
@BenRC01 and Thunder_G0d_Bane Just because a game is free, it still doesn't give a company leeway to charge that amount of money for cosmetics. $20 is a bit much for a "micro" transaction. They shouldn't even be called microtransactions at this point. There's absolutely nothing micro about them. It seriously does not cost a company $20 to make a skin. Modders have been making them for years for free. $20 for like and expansion ala Witcher 3, that I can understand. It probably took them months to make that expansion while in this case, maybe a few hours to make a skin? The price doesn't justify it.
@Thunder_G0d_Bane exactly. It's self entitlement. Some people hate anything they can't have. They can't handle it if someone else can afford to waste money on this cosmetic crap and they can't. Simple as that. No matter how much they lower prices, someone will complain until everything is entirely free.
So don't buy them. F2P games will always have a few pricey items. If they are just cosmetic I don't know why people get so angry.
Now you can buy the skins from the store in rotation for the low low price of $18 a piece! What a deal! Thanks EA.
Which would be ok if they had the ability to earn virtual money towards said items in game like Fortnite has. EA simply makes you pull out your wallet with no real choice.
It's funny how people crying over virtual skins (And as a result caring about them) can be a metaphor for the superficial nature of the majority of gamers.
Any creature with sight use that sense to judge. Or minds don't care if the visual is 'virtual' or 'real'.
If you're not dressed pretty can you even be good? Helllllll no
It's less about that and more about the predatory nature of these sorts of MT's, do a little research and learn how these things can affect children and those that are susceptible to predatory MT's. Companies like this are literally trying to trick people into spending more than they want to. That's what's scummy about this, the lack of honesty.
Well said, you read my mind, it just ashame some people think their avatar says somthing about their personality. In my opinion your avatar is just one in a long line of avatars im gonna kill, I dont look at twice. But if your gameplay is good I might watch your replay, if I dont rage skip.
It's funny how people doesn't caring for other people can be a metaphor for the superficial nature of the majority of people.
I know it's free to play but $18 for a skin, that's insane. Here's a few of my favorite DLC for comparison. Witcher 3 Expansion Pass: $24.99 Undead Nightmare: $9.99 GTAIV Ballad of Gay Tony: $19.99 ME2 Lair of the Shadow Broker: $9.99 No way in hell am I paying $18 for one skin.
You're comparing gameplay to visual aesthetics? Wow, just wow.
I'm comparing price and value.
This is a free game... the money you could of spent buying this game instore could go towards skins if they mattered that much to you?
Which would have came out to possibly 2 skins. Whoopeee.... such a grand marketing plan.
None of those were free games. Free game = pricier content. Be happy it isn't P2W (like GTA Online kinda is now).
I can proudly say I have never purchased any of this useless superficial stuff in any game EVER! absolute waste of money.
Same except that someone bought me a skin in League of legends as a gift to convince me to play with him and I still feel bad that i joined him in this crime, i still freaking remember it.
Damn you caved lol. Still you didn't purchase it so props to you.
Dead game to me! I Haven’t played in weeks.
I earn crown skins by being an APEX CHAMPION. but seriously I have no idea. But in an apex champion anyways. FACE.
I present to you anchoring: https://youtu.be/NFiDdbquWJ...
I don't care what anyone thinks about Fortnite but one thing they did right was their in-game currency awarding and market purchasing options. You have choice of earning small amounts of v-bucks and in-game rewards as you progress and level up simply playing for free. Or option of earning large amounts of v-bucks and in-game rewards by purchasing battlepass. And you also have an option with small daily earning of v-bucks by buying and playing 'Save the World' and also earning weekly larger amounts simply by signing in daily. So many ways to earn v-bucks in Fortnite... while APEX LEGENDS nickels and dimes you for ridiculous available offerings. I simply stopped playing APEX LEGENDS because of their market practices.
It's funny how much shit they were talking before changing it lol. Apparently shit talking your audience is bad for business
