I’ve said it many times, this game is absolutely amazing, so well balanced, runs amazing even on lower end computers, etc. But the real downfall to the game I think is the fact that the developers charge for…wierd things.
I used to be a GM on WoT, so I understand, and have had to tell thousands of players thousands of times, why companies charge for things. They have to make money. However, some of the things seem a little… wierd or outrageous.
The biggest gripe I have on this are 2 things which go together. Clan Tags, and the limit on clan members.
I have a clan in WoT, which I paid for happily. I did the same on this game, however, I then realized I had to dish out an extra 5$ for a clan tag?? Needless to say, It felt like a slap in the face by the developers. This is something you dont want your players to feel, is cheated. I find it silly to have to pay 5$ for 4-5 letters behind your clan members names on the scoreboard. You already paid to have the corporation established, that should also, cover the name/tag.
My second gripe is the starting limit of 20 players. For how popular I believe this game will become, that seems a bit outrageous as well. While I can feel the developers want to charge larger clans for additional clan space. To limit it as low as 20 players seems like over kill, I can’t personally push this limit any higher than an additional 20, money is tight for me, and I already paid out 10$ + an additional 5 which I didnt realize I’d have too. (yes I know I dont “HAVE” to buy the tag, but really… its hard to promote, and show off your clan if nobody knows your in one due to not seeing a tag).
I suggest limiting this number to 40ish instead. Many clans, even the most laid back ones in WoT average 50+ players, and seeing as how this game is about 20x more fun and balanced than WoT will ever be, I believe this game will be able to match WoT in player numbers.
