I’m a Gearbox fangirl… I have and played to pure extenuation both Borderlands, the pre-sequel, the Taletell Game, I got every single dlc that they threw up at me. I enjoyed that a lot and I never, ever get frustrated or thought I expend badly my money. You know why? Because I get what I purchased. For that I trusted Gearbox into getting a Season Pass, even when I didn’t know zilch about what I was getting, because I trusted the company.
I’m not mad at all, I know they are a company, Overwatch is crushing their sales and people playing online in pc (even when both aren’t similar games at all) and they need money, sure they need money to continue developing but don’t spit ‘ungreedy’ on me.
Those, that they are about to sell, are the T2 skins. We saw them in beta vs bots, they hype them in beta and we, jackasses as we are, thought they were part of the game because they were on beta. People saved packs, commander packs and normal ones, thinking those skins could be possible on those. People that was sitting on packs now must feel like champs… for that they weren’t released with Alani, they were about to rip something that was already part of the game to sell it later.
That’s what I consider greedy, that’s what I don’t like in companies like EA: taking about in-game content to sell it later calling it dlc or, in this case, skins.
They aren’t creating something new to sell, they are selling something everyone saw, something that was in the game. Doesn’t matter if is expensive or not, doesn’t matter what other companies are doing. I’m not talking about Riot or Hi-Rez, I’m talking about Gearbox and taking something that was in the game, that we thought were coming soon, they said T2 skins were coming soon but not for money. I expected money for something new…
And, besides, I paid the game for me and my boyfriend, plus season pass to me. I enjoy the game, I’ll play the game, but I don’t have the value of my season pass nor I started to see that value. Yes, deluxe edition guys have taunts and skins, I got an Alani key to play her one week before people without season pass, but besides that key, that didn’t was on real value at all, I have nothing for my season pass money nor I see anything any time soon… I know the next character is in two months period or so… but my first dlc free story or any of the promised skins and taunts? Nothing, not only now but I don’t even have an ETA.
I’m not mad for Gearbox trying to make money.
I’m mad because they are using something that was in game to sell it later, something that was hyped as part of the game because was on beta; I’m mad because after expending so much money in two copies of the game and a season pass, if I fell in love with one of those skins (and being the t2 hyped for bots in beta, trust me I was) Gearbox, don’t giving yet nothing for my money’s value yet and not a freaking ETA in when I get part of that value, they are asking me for more money.
It’s really, really bad taste and really, really soon, too soon.
