paying to level up is literally the opposite of gambling. you know exactly what you are getting/saving on. it's smart of them to offer that for $

serious question, why aren't you mad that you don't have every ability maxed out from the minute you begin playing every game?

I would be mad with any game that designed it to be harder to play through and then charged money to skip it, it's true

well outside of lots of people just being like yeah you know what 2k is a time sink anyway im just gonna stop playing, especially on pc where vc is negated by cheating anyway

we had enough for a league in 17, i dont know anyone that's bought 18 or 19. seems like kind of a dumb move when they're trying to do esports, too.

To me, a game is a type of a work of art and I'm paying money to appreciate that art and with that is the implicit goal that they have developed a game to be as enjoyable as within their powers and this game is not developed to be as enjoyable as possible but to be enjoyable enough to make you want to pay more

i dont have any problem with them selling vc, but even for 17 the prices were pretty insane, especially once you got closer to maxing a character and it's like $5 for two points in a stat.

Isn’t cheating basically the same as paying more money? Same result

the market has also determined that star citizen players are gullible rubes, but we can still denounce the game as a predatory scheme imo

I went and saw Spider Man 2 when I was in France while it was out and the people kept saying "Speeder min" deux and it was cute

i agree it's confusing and why i made that post. people are mad that the game a) makes you play it if you want to level up but don't want to pay and b) unlocks the best stuff behind a time grind, like literally every other game?

Did they show you the ending first Kenny? Why wouldn’t they just give you the sweet climax without grinding through the story

actually now that i think of it i think the 2k pro league uses pre-built builds for qualifiers, not your actual player
