Re: When everything costs you money how will you play???

Jan 20, 2012

First real world money will only be used for vanity items. CCP said you can't buy a win and letting people use real cash for weapons and amor is essentially buying a win.

Eve requires a monthly sub to play, I seriously doubt you need to pay real money for your gear every time you die, you may have to spend ISK, but I'm pretty sure all players have enough ISK for this, the way you make it seem cannot be right.

Dust 514 will revolutionize console MMO's. Believe.

$20.00 = 1 PLEX

1 PLEX = 490,000,000 ISK - 24500000 ISK pur $1.00 - 24500 ISK per 1 cent

1 PLEX = 3500 AUR - 175 AUR pur $1.00 - 1.75 AUR per 1 cent

Having to buy stuff every time you die will stop the dumb players from playing...

It will kick *** to know that when I blow up and kill something, someone out there will but out 50 cents a dollar, twenty bucks

That's why you mine materials on plants you inhabit and train skills to use blue prints and manufacture more guns and armor for yourself.

The game would be a totally rockin & kick *** if you had to buy gear every time you died.

That's in EVE stop comparing DUST to EVE! They are two different games. A dust merc will die a lot more than a pod pilot so if you can use in game cash to buy armor, weapons, new clones that will greatly unbalance the game even for the "non stupid players"... Who are simply people that can't afford to put that type of money into this game which will drive away players leaving Dust 514 a failure due to a horrible micro-transaction system.

"EVE" the Universe, It's harsh and unfair ... Dust being inside the EVE Universe is not going to be gum drops and lolly pops

Press release ---> http://www.ccpgames.com/zh/public-relations/press-releases/article/2126/ccp-39-s-revolutionary-persi...

In a departure from the traditional subscription or one-time purchase model, DUST 514 will be supported by revenues from the in-game sale of virtual goods, allowing players to purchase advanced weaponry, battle gear and vehicles using both earned virtual currency and real money from their Play Station wallet.

If you think Dust 514 will be a failure due to a horrible micro-transaction system you best not play. There are better games for you

Myself, I got fifty bucks sitting in my wallet set to buy all sorts of toys

All we're saying is that its not going to be as extreme as you make it seem. Yes Dust will have microtransactions we've known this since day one practicly. DCUO is f2p as well and I've spent maybee $10 so far and have gotten hours upon hours of gameplay, infact you can reach level cap and end game without spending a dime. I also downloaded Free realms for my kid on PS3 wich is also a free to play MMORPG and again in that game you can do lots without spending a cent and its a free dowload too. Dust already has f2p competition on PS3, trust me CCP isn't going to screw this up.

People act like CCP has to charge real money to get cool weapons in order to make money of this game and that is far from the truth. A, like others have said that would break the game, B, its not realistic, people will spend the money regardless.

If PS HOME is any sort of example to what people will spend money on than all CCP needs to do is release cool looking stuff that doesn't affect game balance. People eat that crap up. Considering Eve Online has been around over 8 years and is doing well I think its safe to say that CCP is very knowleagble on what they are doing and how to implement it properly.

Don't fight in what you can't afford to lose, which is the EVE online golden rule.

I'm an EVE player so hopefully I'll be able to send money to myself
