Welcome back, me! It’s always lovely to return from a weekend away from internets and twitters and bloggies to find 555 posts waiting to be read and a whole firestorm of controversy that popped up most likely because I wasn’t there to settle everyone down and read them a bed time story. People! Just because you don’t get your milk and cookies and Amelia Bedilia doesn’t mean you can riot!
Without further ado, BLOG RAGE!
Anyway, it’s just weird to see Allods suddenly on the receiving end of a hailstorm of unhappiness. The game’s had a LOT going for it, a tremendous buzz, a few bloggers that made the game their Valentine’s Day date, etc. And now, its “soft launch” seems to be covered in poo.
In regards to their bizarre (and what I’d like to think of an accounting error) RMT prices, I’d just like to say this:
RMT and microtransactions may be here to stay, but that doesn’t mean you get to act like off-the-wall robber barons and gouge us with obscenely ridiculous prices. Players won’t stand for it, and they will turn on you if you’ve taken your cues for pricing from airport food vendors. Keep the costs low, friendly and competitive, and we’ll be loyal customers. Gouge us, and you’re going to wonder why we’ve all fled to other games.
