If you want to implement rng items and loot...make people play the game to get ROI Gold...this is why we are here. To play your rng loot table game with swords and sorcery and magical pets.
God damn if I go to fight a boss and he asks me for my credit card before we do battle...
If we let companies keep making "real cash gambling" in the games we love where will it end? What will be left of the games we play? Well, I guess we'll just throw 20$ down and see what's in Pandora's Box* then, but I assure you it will not be good.
*Pandora's Box(no, this isnt a cash shop item lol, it's a figurative point) :
"Pandora's box is an artifact in Greek mythology, taken from the myth of Pandora's creation in Hesiod's Works and Days to Buy Riders of Icarus Gold. The "box" was actually a large jar given to Pandora, which contained all the evils of the world. Pandora opened the jar and all the evils flew out, leaving only "Hope" inside once she had closed it again."
Today the phrase "to open Pandora's box" means to perform an action that may seem small or innocent, but that turns out to have severely detrimental and far-reaching negative consequences.
Anyhow. Just my two cents coming from nearly 37 years of solid gaming in the industry. Take what I said with a grain of salt, or leave it. I don't care, I just felt it all needed to be said before yet another great game concept is destroyed by the hulking industrial machine that consumes all known as money.
You can only spend $60 a month new or old account for NX credit (Steam Wallet counts Cheap Riders of Icarus Gold). Everything after the $60 you need to buy the Karma Koin card and apply it to your account through Nexon (NX Prepaid ((does not work through Steam)). Good Luck!
I'm sure they are loosing hundreds of thousands of dollars a month because of this.... Its like they dont want our money LOL
