*sigh*

Beta can't come soon enough so that we can just see the stuff in action and comment from experience. The devs seem receptive enough to community concerns and making important changes.

All the more reason to just work with what info we have in the meanwhile and not flip out too bad until we get hands on or hear something truly fucked up.
The strongest gun in the game doesn't (shouldn't) do anything if you can't aim. In league you just have to right click on the enemies and you make use of the stuff you've bought indirectly with cash.

Plus, you can spend the IP you got with your IP boost on runes that give you more gold in game.

I hate to say it, but in order to make up the lost income from removing cash-only items, they probably just lowered the ceiling for the resources you can hold for your character. Just throwin' that out there...

Cool, nice to see specifics on the cash store. I was hoping we'd essentially be able to buy "vehicle variants" with real cash -- awesome!

Re: Some Info about Items from the Shop


Now one thing I have not yet heard or seen about is the numbers of resources weapons and armour will cost, as well as the amount of time it will take to say collect enough resources to buy a specific item

Re: Some Info about Items from the Shop


I'm curious how much of a grind it is going to be to unlock things that you can buy. Will it be so much of a grind you'll wonder what you're doing with your life that you may as well just fork over cash? Then again they'll probably sale boosts to alleviate that. Ugh gaming these days.

That's not at all what I meant and I think you know that.

Re: Some Info about Items from the Shop


That was my reddit post! *Fanboysqueal*
It was super crazy how Matt Higby commented in half an hour with great information. I'm so pumped! This is my first post, but I have been lurking for a while, but I thought the luck was too great to go without commenting. :P
