Weapon unlocks... Hmm feels like P2W to me. Not that I'm surprised to see it. But it confirms there BS that this game will not be P2W.

The weapon unlocks for infantry are more side-grades. However, if they unlock vehicle weapons w/ it, it becomes P2W and that's a nono.

I can assure you that in beta right now if you cert into something you loose something else (like mag capacity,speed, armor etc).
then there are over powered weapons that needs to be balanced, but that's another story.
Devs are doing a great job and are really listening.
the game is huge and time will pass before the dust sets and all the classes , vehicles and sidegrades are balanced.

Guys this does not confirm pay to win.. all this crap is obtainable via Auraxium. This is confirmation of nothing at all other than Alpha Squad.

/sigh

The unlocks aren't going to be for special founder-only equipment. Everything unlocked will be available for auraxium as well, I'm sure. And it's spread out over all 3 factions, so any one who just plays as 1 faction will only get the benefit of 4 unlocks.

We don't even know if the unlocks will be for equipment that is a sidegrade (replaces existing equipment) or an upgrade (equips in an as of yet unused slot). Wait and see, then complain.

Just because someone can pay and unlock something faster than it would take them to unlock it with auraxium doesn't mean it's p2w.


Personally, I'm all over this. It's exactly what I expected.

I have about 50 hours play in beta so far... I think I can make up my own mind about weapons in it. And I'm not talking about the certifications but the weapons you buy for aurixium in the beta now. If any of those become available with SC its pay2win in my mind.

Looks great to me. Especially since I was already considering getting Station Cash for the launch this is even better.

Sunrock this is the model that comes with F2P. SOE is giving you access to these weapons via Auraxium. This is going to be slower verse paying for them straight up. Your call as to whether or not you want to cough up the doe to get them sooner.

I disagree with you. That is P2W. Everything that is not play 2 win is Pay 2 win.

You have to admit that most of the weapons you are talking about are the unbalanced ones like A2A, A2G... i see a lot of people running for the latest unbalanced weapon added in beta just because allows lots of kills.
most of the players sucks with a mossie but they certed a 12500 Aux rockets cert upgrate anyway. such certification is worth 2-3 days of playtime and right now makes sense only because you are rewarded with bazillion of kills and killstreaks.
just my opinion...
