Now Auraxium is going why do we need to spend money?


Seriously the only reason I'd spend money is if I was buying weapons or vehicles. I mean this is where I spend money on games like TF2 and as an FPS it's kinda the main thing. However now SOe are making everything super easy to get, I'll unlock everything in a few weeks and be bored withing the month. What will I have to do then? I wont be spending any money because they've mad everything so easy to get. I probably wont even stick around because I'll have nothing left to achieve and if I don't feel like I'm personally advancing then I wont feel a need to play.

So where am I meant to spend money?

If they introduced a player made item store then I'd stick around and buy loads of crazy stuff players have come up with. However fighting for territory with no personal gain just bores me. Planetside failed because people were bored within month 3 and Core Combat was meant to fix that and didn't FPS games need something to keep fighting for. COD and BF3 have endless progression but right now Planetside 2 doesn't.

Free weapons and vehicles = earn cert points.

Paid weapons and vehicles = station cash.

I don't see the problem. Cert point gain is getting boosted 4X very soon.

Ok, how are SOE suppose to make MONEY?

If you save Certification Points by buying weapons, why can't you just BUY Certification Points?

...Oh yeah, because that will give a HUGE inherent advantage to the paying customer, getting the game a label of "Pay-to-win."

Getting labeled P2W equals less players, less players equals higher prices to milk the same amount of money out of them, higher prices equals GAME DEAD!

Remember that this isn't a subscription game anymore, they need to make some money somehow, but making it so that Character Advancement is absolutely necessary for both side-grade unlocks AND actual upgrades will make paying for weapons the quickest way to advance.

Except there's no need to unlock it all, because most of it is shit. That's why in the latest patch they've tried forcing you to buy junk in order to unlock the useful stuff. Which in itself is a pointless grind. Pretty sure the concept is just flawed :/
