This question is actually for everybody, but I needed a catchy title
I am curious, for all of those who are anti-loot crates in Call of Duty, how many of you wish you had Activision stock? If you did own stock in Activision, would this affect the way you view loot crates making their way to Call of Duty?
I know that Activision receives a lot of bashing here; some warranted, some not, and some of the posts are made by kids/immature adults, being just flat out mad about the state of the game. My question, for all of us, would be: how do you propose making money on a software product past the point of sale?
don't put out a *****ty game so people will buy the next one
there has been only one dupe protected mkII weapon opportunity in 6 months. they got it right in infinite warfare with earning salvage, keys and many dupe protected drops. there was limited rig and weapon camos to earn or purchase and you could use salvage to acquire upgraded weapons of your choosing. it was a far less abusive system that didn't take too much advantage of our willingness to spend our cash and offered numerous chances for dupe protected drops. are you telling me they didn't make money on infinite warfare. now they just keep coming up with more lame items to take advantage of us. unlimited outfits and gun camos, face paints, stickers and blah blah blah. it's dupe-dupe-sticker. dupe-dupe face paint. dupe-dupe bull*****. this dope-dope-dope ain't spending another penny. now i just get whatever enjoyment i can for the money i have invested and i'm done with them. infinite warfare was my first game [ and i'm 59 yrs old] and black ops 4 will be the last purchase i make from these guys. even with all the cheating, crappy servers,screw ups with every update and there catering to every nitwit that whines about that guns OP or nerf the four wheeler or he won because of outlander ,the dogs OP etc etc, i try to have fun without spending another penny . ***** THEM ! and ***** YOU
Isn't their stock worth like half it was less than a year ago? lol...
I don't care about micro transactions...as long as it doesn't turn into pay-2-win situations...
What bothers me is they don't do jack sht with the money they rake in, in regards to game performance...or give free DLCs...keep the population together and give free DLCs ffs...
I'm willing to pay for more maps and story related dlc in games in general. I refuse to pay for microtransactions which I guess makes me an anti-loot crater. (exception- C.O.D.E packs)
I don't have ATVI shares.. but if I did, I still wouldn't buy microtransactions.
A company should be successful by making good decisions. So a quality game with a worthwhile season pass seems like enough to make money past the point of sale to me. All that piece meal stuff is just nickle and diming in my opinion.
