You may not like it, but at this point enough people do to once again make it profitable. It's up to you whether to continue on or find something else that suits your needs better.



Yeah, people quitting a fun and entertaining game because of some virtual currency that has no bearing on the real world. Yeah, BW are the stupid ones.

The game failed because it wasnt up to par with its competition, so they had 2 choices. Make the game worth playing, or make it f2p. i dont understand why fanboys are ok with the choice EA made. Rift is proving that the other choice works.

And people arent quitting "because of some virtual currency that has no bearing on the real world" they are quitting because it costs hundreds of thoudsands of credits to do progression raids, and grouping with a dud in a gf hm fp can cost you thouands of credits, after awhile that "virtual currency that has no bearing on the real world" runs out and you cant play anymore.
