Yeah, I’m not quite sure other than maybe they felt there was nothing positive that could come from it or maybe it was already becoming derailed? It’s strange indeed because I feel like open discussion should be allowed as long as it’s civilized so they know what they’re doing right and wrong.
It’s best to PM a mod about this. I did that in the past when I thought a mod was being unfair and I believe the situation was handled well.
Threads like this are supposed to be closed so don’t be offended if that happens.
I think TC went the Micro transaction route because of Microsoft. They’re trying to regain a profit after buying the franchise from Epic while at the same time using Gears UE and Gears 4 as the guinea pigs to get better at making gears games. I have a feeling that we will see the return of DLC and maybe some micro transactions that shouldn’t affect big parts of the game like characters.
I hope they didn’t do it just because they can’t face facts. The Gears forums and their mods have been pretty good about allowing criticisms on here. I hope the forums don’t transform into censorship. It’s not even close yet though. Wanna see mods abusing power? Just look at something like the Overwatch forums.
I thought Microsoft made them do it for the same reasons. I remember seeing somewhere I think it was Cliffy B that said it that in order for Epic to make a Gears 4 it would have to be multi platform for them to make a profit. But the RGN I believe is on TC. I think they would have made more money in the long run if you could just buy the character you want not a chance at it. I know I would have bought a bunch. But personally I won’t risk getting a BS Mryyah to get a BS Hoffman. I know a few people who stayed away for the same reasons as well. I also know a few people who spent 100’s on 1 pack chasing a certain character so I could be wrong
