About Dauntless, as I see it you guys are totally right on this but still we're knitpicking on a game that is suposed to be evolving and is still on alpha, comparing to POE and Warframe it does have the same "feel" as when they started and for me that is all it's needed, I'm not talking about cosmetics or monetization, this "feeling" comes from the dev team's" openmindedness". What will happen is that the average player will go into this and play for 1 month and will leave it and in 5-6 months the game will change and in 2 years if everything goes OK, people will compare it to other games (nowadays people look at Warframe and compare it to other things and say it's Destiny free to play), which for me makes no sense to me since I play Warframe from the 1st month, Warframe is Warframe not any other game because it's "waters" is the free-to-play day to day world not the AAA dream world.
Zach we don't ever really "need this" we're talking games here, but yes we'd "like" something different instead. :D
Da-Bomb to players, everyone should play the games they want the way they want and this is why F2P for me is a great thing and not something to shy or frown upon. A-Bomb to knitpicking I know we need to do it but sometimes I just lay back and start thinking, we're all just idiots because we have no idea how much work goes behind the scenes and we're talking a free-to-play.
Question of the Week. I NEVER bought a founder's pack, I've bought plenty of AAAs and always supported my F2P games whenever I felt I should with the amounts I could and I always leave games that make me pay for gated content, my SDD/HDD space is VERY expensive for me to have "Frustrationware" in it.

That "comfortable" bit was probably a mistranslation. There's no distinction in Russian between "convenient" and "comfortable" (we have only one word that means both / either), so it's a common mistake for unprofessional translators and people who rely on Google translator too much.

I case the guy from Poland who was upset about having to pay for Total War: Arena closed beta access is reading this:
They've sent me another beta key for some reason. I think it's for EU region and I have no need for it, so if you still want it I could either post it here or send through some more private means. Not sure why you'd want it though, since they've announced that there will be a wipe after CBT.

Da bomb to Destiny, The Game looks Great, plays great and Runs Great, the Optimization was my biggest Problem and with the open beta i saw the awesome port they did on it.

A Bomb to bungo for never learning, Destiny 2 is still not running on dedicated servers but Peer to peer connection which already resulted in DDoSing attacks and hacks in Destiny and they still did not learn it and now with a PC version using the system it will be even easier to get the IP of someone, aside from Peer to Peer the thing that made me cancel my preorder is aim assist on PC, no matter what anyone out there says, it either has to go or the majority of the PC community will simply ditch the game and probably wait for Anthem, and before anyone cries, You can emulate a Controller with software and hardware on PC to make the game think your mice and keyboard is a controller.
