    If you are wondering why I only snipped that one part out... I am sure you will see it soon.

    Aw shucks. Thanks.

    Sincerely though, I appreciate the response. If this saves one person from indulging in a F2P game and saving the money they could have spent on a quality game like Rift, I've served my purpose.

    Oh, I saw it. I saw it on the last post but something OCD inside me didn't want to have the "edited by..." line at the bottom of the post. I replaced "yeras" with "years." Yeah, I know. I knew. Now I have that line at the bottom of my post.

    THIS IS WHY WE CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS.

    Look at the bright side... the post is now 100% SHEER PERFECTION! You can always change the edit message to say Belenos made me do it. I will take the blame for you.

    This is hilarious, not because it's true, but because it assumes you have to buy everything in a game and that everyone is dumb for buying something in a F2P game. I have played some F2P games, around 10 across various genres, and guess what I spent: Nothing. Just because some people can't stick to their principles doesn't mean everyone acts accordingly. If a game requires a credit card and is "free" while you don't want to spend any money you should read the writing on the wall and find something else.

    It's not a lack of intelligence, but a question of worth. People will buy anything that has perceived value. In F2P games time literally equals money, by saving money you add time on areas you may not like. Don't want the spend the money? Spend the time. It's that simple. If they knowingly buy things to speed up the process they're not idiots, they just feel the actions are a waste of time and worth the money. If they complain about it they just found how shallow the game actually was and now know there was no reason to spend that money. It's obvious when money is required and anyone can refuse to pay and stop playing, but it's worth the money to many players and so they pay. Obviously they're not stupid for that, it's a calculated move. If you are saying F2P games are more manipulative than P2P games you need to get your head checked or actually make an effort to see how P2P games are manipulative.

    The better question is, why do people pay monthly for filler content that only takes up time with no enjoyment? They're obviously the intellectual superiors for paying to do busy work with the expectation something fun (or at least "prestigious") will come at the end. Plenty of people would pay to get around all that crap, and that's exactly what F2P games do.

    All in all, good blind hate speech. Not particularly informative on the reality of the matter and assumes everyone is a homogeneous imbecile with no money that spends lots of money, but it has emotion people can apparently get wrapped up in. Work a little harder on presentation and you'll be a dictator in no time.

    Odd you brought up Runes of Magic, I'm coming from there.

    I was an officer in the top guild in the US (Woot! Go Legacy!), one of the best geared across all servers, and to this day have never spent a cent. I got to experience everything the game had to offer for free, do it at the top, and enjoyed it while waiting for something new and better to come out.

    It is easy to spend money in a F2P game, granted. It's called a lack of self-control. It's called impatience. You want what they want, and you want it NOA! What may not occur to you is that some people play f2p so well, that they end up making money off the game. Course, that's against the TOS. But nonetheless, the opportunity is there for anyone intelligent enough, which kinda contradicts your original post :/

    Now, I'm personally over with the game. But in the end, I paid less for 1 year+ of endgame play than I did for the bag of Nachos I am currently enjoying. Soooo....... yeah.
