I do love battleborn and want to play this game for a long time. That is why i want to discuss the best business modell that gearbox could go with to survive on this marked. As we all know the biggest games releated to this game is LOL, DOTA, Smite, HOTS. CSGO etc. All these games have a free to play buiseness modell (not CS Go but its very cheap). And yeaa, i forgot to mention blizzards new game Overwatch, who pre released the open beta the same day as battleborn launched. How can battleborn compete with blizzard with the same business modell (Buy once 60 euro), the answear is, it can not.
I play this game on PC. on release it was average playerbase of 7-10k, now it is down to 3-7k in just a few days.
What can help? I suggest to make it free to play (ofc make the once who bought the game some nice shit like premium membership/bling/money etc etc). Make it free to play, or at least free to try for maybe 7 days, or free to try but you can only play 5 characters.
Another thing i would suggest is free to play, but making it harder to gain all the heroes, but then again you need to make money so you can sell the all in one heroes package for 20 euro or something. And of course Skins would need to cost some money or boxes with loot. But i would play this game even with this sellout modell, because more players would play it. witch means less que time and much bigger community.
Feel free to comment, this is my opinion, just trying to help.- Anyone with better ideas?
