While FFX it may have gotten rid of pay-to-win, the Battle Pass still utilizes profit-generating microtransactions in other ways.
Battle asses, am I right. Give me a macho man oh yeah.
You at least know what you're getting with MTs and Battle Passes. I think it's a good compromise.
Yeah you know what your getting. Shafted and an unfeasably long grind with daily weekly logins.
If you like the game then it's not really an issue.
Avoid the clickbait. This same site posted an article saying the exact opposite about 3 days ago.
How the heck did FFX sneak into the description? I mean, I guess you could grind gil and use Yojimbo to "pay to win", but I don't think I've seen a battle pass for it yet lol
They're far more tolerable. In MW, all the DLC is free, there's no in-game advantages from micro-transactions and battle passes add an extra layer of progression that wasn't previously there. I haven't played it yet but I'm actually considering getting MW after giving up on COD years ago.
Yeah, any and all MTX suck, but at least with a battle pass system, you see straight up what you're going to get and can decide if you want to purchase. With random ass loot boxes, you have zero control. For me, battle passes can stay and become the norm if that means loot boxes disappear eventually
as long as the battle pass gives you back what you put in they are awesome in my opinion, more incentive to play, the rewards and an actual feeling of pride and accomplishment. However i do wish the would keep going and not just disappear when the season is over because playing when you don't want to really sucks the fun out of it.
They're the same thing in the long run but just wearing a different outfit, in the end it's a cheap way to take cash out of your wallet.
I'm kind of convinced that the more aggressive MT were a covert way for the publishers to make people more accepting of the MT that arent as bad. It's a lesser of two evils scenario, and subconsciously, people start saying, well, the old way was at least better than loot boxes...or whatever
