All I have to say is City of Heroes. Cryptic may have started it, but it took NCSoft to get it going. All the expansions have been free. Before anyone says "What about City of Villians, it was'nt free" It was also a stand alone game, so either game could be played without the other. Just having both opened up a lot with the other. 14 Expansions and counting if i remember right, maybe more by now, and all free. Cryptic makes a half a game and expects ppl to pay for the rest. Good policy if your into failing. Star Trek Online, nothing big or new. And broken as well, still being released though. Just my opinion about the whole thing.

To make it worse, [url=http://forums.champions-online.com/showthread.php?t=99098]Cryptic has buffed all enemies across the board with something like 20% increased attack speed[/url], which to many non optimised more comic-book thematic builds are getting cut down left and right. Then they had the gall to ask if people like it. While the majority of players are saying hell no, there's a small but vocal amount of people who are trying to defend this bad move and insulting those who are just trying to have fun.

Any other game company would have hotfixed this. Cryptic took a look at the unintended change, decided that it would take work to fix it, and essentially asked the community 'should we leave it like this? We're hearing a bunch of trolls saying they like it since they have FOTM builds. Otherwise we'll have to actually do our job'.

All In all, as a long time CO player and beta tester who had some suggestions make it into the game, I've got to say my faith in the company is dwindling.

It was an obviously over-hyped game from the get go. When you see a game offering "life-time subscriptions" you can pretty much write it off.

I just can't believe how many people thought it was going to be good. I was there once too though, maybe these were all the people that hadn't been slammed into reality yet, like I was with AoC.
