  • Xaviant's Josh Van Veld actually thinks his mistake was how they announced pay-per-match rather than the pay-per-match monetization itself. What reality does this guy live in?

    • Yong, have you read ubisoft's new terms of service going into effect August 12? If not you need to look into it and PLEASE do a video over it. Basically, and I pray I am misinterpreting but if you stream/upload any video containing ubisoft property, they own it forever. That's nuts but IT GETS SO MUCH WORSE, if you feature your image in that video, ubisoft OWNS YOUR LIKENESS FOREVER and what's crazier if you feature a friend or fan they also own that persons likeness. If a fan didnt want their image used and Sue's ubisoft, then YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL PENALTIES INCURRED. Please look into this and do a video over it, we need to stop this now, we need to raise awareness and raise our pitchforks be ause if this gets through, it will become the norm, thanks man.

Those bastards really allow people willing to stay at top by paying for their packs destroy, insult and do whatever the fuck they want with no concern for the hate they generate and how they belittle other players, please expose them..

  • I fucking hate micro transactions (who doesn’t?), *especially* when they are paywalls you even play the game. The only time I am comfortable or even willing to spend more money on a game is when it is a permanent purchase of content, not currency, and it’s not a paywall, but just enhances my game experience. When I saw that dark souls 3 had a dlc, I was on the edge of my seat typing in my payment information as fast as I could. no other game has done that for me.

    • Another thing as well that I'm cosidering is that this isnt just a problem of server costs being to high. There is probebly other issues in the background that is taking thier money something like curruption within the company or even people not being paid decently. Have no clue but it is something to think about.

  • I thought Bubsy would of made people learn not to tempt fate in the memeverse. Guess I was wrong. And keep in mind, I PLAYED THE CULLING DURING THE FIRST REVIVAL. So I'm kinda pissed! I genuinely enjoyed the game. I thought it was a good battle royale, and it had a lot of potential and new ideas, namely, the focus on melee combat rather than guns. There were ranged weapons, but they were either a crossbow that only holds one bolt at a time and reloads slowly, or a revolver that can hold 6 bullets and reloads quickly, but can't be crafted, and if an enemy managed to land a melee hit on you while you had a ranged weapon out, they'd disarm you, forcing you to drop the weapon. They also didn't start shrinking the arena till 10 minutes remained, though since that meant that people would just hide, they had a man tracker, which gives the direction and distance to the closest enemy without the inhuman perk (makes you immune to tracking devices). Also, falling damage, while painful and could slow you down for a moment, was not fatal, and if it would kill you, you'd be left with 1 health.

  • Really sick and tired of how game developers use really scummy tactics but this one just doesn’t give a fuck. As Yong said “therein lies the problem” The point of creating a video game is the intention of creating something so that players will keep playing it but apparently this game developer just is so much in denial that he just wants the game to crash and burn he doesn’t want to fix anything he doesn’t wanna make it better he doesn’t want a new engine he doesn’t want anything. At least Bethesda are honest about them being in denial. But this “dev” takes the whole pie.

I have paid nothing and as of this post I would have to lose over 80 matches in a row all in one day before im forced to pay for even a single token. It seems like a greedy cash grab but the reality is they will make no money because they even managed to screw up their cash grab.
