As a gamer/business man/father I will say that gamers are different people like a military officer acts a lot different than the run in the mill 20 year old.
Gamers value different things just like everyone else but their seems to be an issue with labeling gamers in areas ftp/c2p/p2w but not listing the subbrackets of these catergories why which leads to these I’m gonna quit posts.
the fact that my daughter plays E&P, Her mother, and 10 of my real life friends make the game a social hub that not only entertains us but allows the most important people in my life spend time together daily, have great conversations over said strategies, and basically always have a topic for conversation which anyone with kids or long time significant other knows exactly what I mean.
all you here is ftp/c2p/p2w which I feel is the root of the issue here. each area of these gamers have sub brackets and these are never brought up.
You have FTP I’m 15 live at my moms and have no job but I love games. this guys frustration over bad pulls will most likely be triple the frustration of a paying player in any bracket because they like to compete but have limited means for income and yes E&P can bite your wallet if you not careful.
FTP because u dont believe they should have to pay anything for a free game. <------i avoid these people at all times. Sorry but to this day there is not a single branch of gamers that acts this way except these guys because when we grew up NO GAMES WERE FREE. rolling for heroes here was like back in the Nintendo and Sega days when you had to read a review of a game. spend your 50 60 bucks and hope it was worth it. A lot of times the game was garbage only to be offered 5 to 10 dollars back for trade credit at gamestop.
When is the last time one of you stood in line for a half hour with a quarter in your hand waiting on your chance to grab Ken, Ryu, or Chun li and put off the reigning champion who was only known by the three initials they left when their game was over.
c2p with expectations- guys normally have no problem spending a little bit but they do expect something for their purchase. a bad roll of 30 makes these people feel their money is not being respected and depending on the want of said heroes can come to the forum slightly upset or in a full blown rage which on a limited budget totally understandable.
The well off so called P2W player these guys are the largest branch of gamers their are. from super competitive(people finishing top of event tiers) to I just have not much to do with my money so I’m here to enjoy the company, to “free players should burn and I’m gonna build my account just to cup drop and show em!!!”
and my favorite gamer- I think I’m good but…I’mreally not. Every true gamer has that friend that loves games but…how do I say it nicely…when you playing overwatch and they see you onlije and are like “hey guys let’s party up” and there is this collective sigh…some gamers are just not good at games and rather than accept that a lot of them will blame everything from the summons gate to the devs to god hates them as to why their gaming experience is bad when in reality…they just arent good.
you couldnt hide this in the arcade, if you out your money in and got beat first round everytime, everyone around saw that, and sometimes had very rude comments depending on how bad a win or loss was. sadly I have seen horrible fist fights over 25 cent which is a level of gaming I try to stay away from, but with the ability to hide behind a screen from a remote location anywhere in the world gamers become their alter egos online and anyone who logs in and decides to be a douchebag probably isnt saving the whales in their spare time…just saying.
whatever reason you gaming we all had a game we couldnt wait to get home and play watching the hours at work/school and we all had a game where we felt like it was a waste of money.
as a gamer you fit in one of these categories and finding like minded players will make your time enjoyable which doesnt cost anything at all. I’m here for the ride that I hope gets better with time being that it’s relatively still new with surprising success. I can see that money is being well spent and hope that the drops rates are adjusted to fit the size of the new economy and we have more daily events to win said items with tougher restrictions like NO REPLAY OF LEVEL UPON COMPLETION
