I love the new apex legends/fortnite chapter.

Seriously the new Battlepass crossover with Fortnite and Apex legends is EVERYTHING. Whoever decided to do this, they need a raise, it's so ground breaking and original. The cosmetics behind the 1000 Auric cell paywall, BRILLIANT. I am so GLAD that this is the primary focus of the game. Ya'll were on a roll, and now, a hard turn for the better, money money money. Obviously the gaming community wanted more of this. So glad nothing was revealed to us or teased about the archives and we just got to see that it was a Battlepass on our own, thank you BHVR, this is truly a great moment. Maybe you guys can potentially put DLC on the Battlepass given they cost less than your Cosmetics.

Sincerly, someone who has put in over 1500+ hours in the game.

    Nothing revealed or teased? They told us its a battle pass in June on the anniversary stream...

    They didn't blindside anyone it was expected way in advance

  • SporkSpork Member Posts: 122

    Salty? This was nothing but positive feedback, why would I have a reason to be salty? I am very confused.

  • UlvenDagothUlvenDagoth Member Posts: 3,535

    And that you can get them for free too? Nothing is exclusive....

  • SporkSpork Member Posts: 122

    I don't recall them ever confirming the Archives being a Battlepass, I do recall it being brought up and cosmetics being talked about. I am SO glad they took this route.

    I am just as glad as you are! Wait for the emotes, maybe we can get a chatwheel like from dota too? You know like when you down someone or they miss an attack on you, you can quickly blast their ears with https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQeezCdF4mk

    or maybe even have a spray saying "loser!" in big capital letters? Anyway you get the idea!

    Screw bugfixing, map reworks and all that stuff nobody needs!

    When they talked about it in the stream, they said that it wouldn't be a "pay to win" type thing. They made it sound like the cosmetics you could get with the premium side would just be reskins of whatever was on the regular side.

    My issue with it is that this isn't really a game that needs that kind of content. Between Auric cell packs and DLC, they keep getting money from us on a pretty regular basis. I'm stoked for the concept of the Archive - I think the base idea of it is something the game can benefit from, but I don't think it needs to have a paid version. I would rather see it be a series of more difficult challenges for us to complete so that we have to work harder to get the reward rather than pay to get it.

    @Endstille Why are you so negative about something that takes nothing away from you and that you can ignore? It's not like this was done in place of balance changes. If anything, it was done to extend the longevity of the game.

  • EndstilleEndstille Member Posts: 2,246

    Well because I think it is very consumer unfriendly, it deludes people into thinking that they get their money back when all they get is virtual currency with no value outside of that game.

    I find this business model fine in games that are free to play, given the fact that this game costs around 20€ with additional dlc which cost 113.82€ is troublesome to say the least.

    From a +2K player, non-sarcastically, i welcome this.

  • GrimbergothGrimbergoth Member Posts: 293

    I made a post early today about this exact thing , but just to make a point . Buy any wow , and then the latest expansion , plus 15 a month how much have you spent , more then the sum total you gave . Now they host a lot mor players and its a different type of game , but they both have respective scale overhead and costs to pay every month .

    They have to keep coming up with things to sell other wise they go broke and scuttle the sinking ship . they dont have a monthly subscription to fall back on if cosmetics dont sell like wow does .

    Im not saying anyone is a bad person or player if they are not supporting the game by buying dlc's cosmetics or rift pass . But thanks to those people who do this game continues to run and become more then what it was . If no one bought things 20-30$ one time fee wouldn't pay for anything and support would cease.

    Just another comparison , funpimps game 7 days to die , still in testing stage after years , one time fee , but no support outside of updates . servers are run by people who pay to host them and then charge or dont depending on their desire . Also updates are not very fast coming , sometimes a year or more for a major update .

    Needs more CAPS!

    From a 1300+ player, I welcome this as well. Free crap for a onetime $10 investment that lets me earn that cash back ingame for just playing it. DBD is my most played game as of the last three years so I'm glad that I now have a solid reason to play it as much as I do other than just leveling and prestiging. Once rank rewards come out, I'll be one happy camper.

  • SporkSpork Member Posts: 122

    There are plenty of things the community has brought up on these very forums that can be done in place of a battlepass.

  • BossBoss Member, Trusted Posts: 13,580

    Ehh, technically, you don't earn back your money, you earn back the currency you bought with your money.

    Which is still nice in a way: If you put in the effort, you'll have bought $20 pack for $10.

  • shirtlessdavid69shirtlessdavid69 Member Posts: 4

    I'd have preferred the developers concentrate on fixing the game bugs/issues before chasing $.

    It's clear for all to see that this is just yet another attempt of squeezing more money out of us. Of course, they will say that more money will give them more resources to fix the game. Fine, if that's the type of game you want to play then we will expect the game to run near-perfectly in return. Anything less and you will drive even more people away.

  • ProfessorDunwichProfessorDunwich Member Posts: 842

    I'm really hoping they add Loot Boxes myself.

  • SinfulHarlotSinfulHarlot Member Posts: 154

    @Spork Not to put you or any of my DBD peers down, but I think when it comes to financial decisions. Behavior probably knows what's best.

    I can't seem to understand why you hold such disdain for something as small as exclusive cosmetics.

  • MikeadatrixMikeadatrix Member Posts: 890

    Yeah, exactly. But what I'm further implying is that you can get hundreds of dollars of cosmetics over the years with just a $10 entrance fee, per se. That's why I'm excited.

  • UlvenDagothUlvenDagoth Member Posts: 3,535

    .... are we really complaining about a company getting more money to keep the game we love alive?

  • BossBoss Member, Trusted Posts: 13,580

    Ah yeah, pretty much, didn't really think that far.

    It'll require quite the dedication though, YOU UP FOR IT, MAGGOT?!

  • EndstilleEndstille Member Posts: 2,246

    I keep that in mind, no worries but I disagree.

    Also I am in no mood to give lecture in financial investments. I want to support the devs that is why I did buy all the dlc so far and have gifted those in the past to friends who wanted to have some or did miss one or two in their collection. I buy skins that I like.

    But to me this leaves a sour taste in my mouth. I assume that when achives go live, they have an estimate as to when the majority of active players will be done with it. So those 1k AC will be invested into a new skin releasing shortly around that time so next month another 10 is going into it. Shards used to be a thing to get skins but less and less is made even available for those.

    The updates and new content is paid if i am not mistaken? People buy DLC, it is not gifted by bhvr which I do not ask them to do.

    This post is what happens when you wake up in the morning and realized you pooped yourself while sleeping

  • HorsePowerHorsePower Member Posts: 126

    Imagine crying about free cosmetics.

  • thedevalexthedevalex Member Posts: 283

    If you paid attention to the patch notes there are lots of bug fixes.

  • thedevalexthedevalex Member Posts: 283

    I am personally very glad for the rifts and archives because it adds more stuff to do after playing the game for so long.

  • SinfulHarlotSinfulHarlot Member Posts: 154

    @Endstille So you're mad that you gave them the benefit of the doubt and are now looking to increase their profits?

    I'd hate to say this but most people aren't "supporting" them the way you do. Have you seen the amount of comments that complain about X or Z not being on the shrine. People wait months to avoid paying for 5 dollar dlc. All I'm saying is if a battlepass is what it takes for the game to remain a constant, who cares? They're cosmetics.
