Mhhh Deja vu , you already asked if MMOBOMB Should cover more then just Free 2 Play, so once again my answer is: The name is MMOBomb, not Free 2 Playbomb, covering Buy to play will probably be an inevitable thing because as you mentioned Magic"Falldamage"man, Free 2 Play is on it's march back, it is still a thing in Asia but the Western market isn't really into Free 2 Play anymore.

A bomb 1 : Pull yourself together Sun. Stop Trolling !

A bomb 2: Gameforge and getting a Licence for a Game is somewhat Questionable, they were able to Maintain Tera for quite some time but the game is ultimately left for dead, I recently checked the EU server and it was a Ghost town. Tera once was about skill, it isn't anymore. Now they announced soulworker Online, urgh i can't describe on how many levels this game will not succeed in the west, i am playing the Japanese Version of Soulworker, so far i like it, but it is a Massive grinder, more than Warframe and skyforge combined. but hopefully the English Language files can be applied to the Japanese version.

For the question of the week... I absotively, posolutely think you should add in buy to play. I would love to hear more about The Secret World, Project: Gorgon, and ESO just off the top of my head. I like the model and I think there's definitely and audience for it.

I'd like to add that Blizzard covered both F2P out the box and a conversion from B2P to F2P. Remember start craft and all those other games were in shelves before becoming f2p.

I would like to see you cover more than just free to play MMOs. As things stand it means you cover games that are called free to play by their publishers but in practice need a sub or a lot of cash (like ArcheAge), yet don't cover others that are by any sensible standard far better value. Just as the market has changed in the last couple of years, I'd say the site should follow. I'd still like to see the free to play police series and so on remain, but with a widening of the coverage to reflect the current state of the industry.

A-Bomb to TERA and whomever made the decision to put all of the Hello Kitty items behind lock boxes. A double A-Bomb to whomever made the Elin only outfit lock box cost twice as much as any other outfit lock box. Every other outfit lock box is 150, this one is 295. It's not right to rip-off the folks who financially saved your game. These are the same folks who'd of purchased the Elin outfit for $40 and not even batted an eye. But instead, those players will feel ripped off at the casino slots, never to return to TERA.

QotW: I think you definitely should do some buy to play games. With more and more games going buy to play and some switching to buy to play I feel like you guys wont have anything to report. So many good games that you assume are free don't end up that way. And if you're really moving to Mississippi Q, make sure you set your clock back 200 years.
