Cryptic really needs to learn how to do proper PR...

@Tempes Magus Uh, you can play the game entirely for free. 1-40, completely for free, and do well with the silver archetypes. I don't think any other game gives a free experience like that: most of the stuff that is paid is pure fluff.

You shouldn't complain, CO could have limited you to level 30, prevented you from using the AH, and not let you enter Vibora Bay.

@Tempes Magus i totally do agree with you ...
Archetypes should come with a free character slot.

Anyway, i'm lifetimer, and really disapointed by the way the game is going ...

As for the article. meh.

They don't NEED to fix ego blades, the bad part of the mentalist set was Telepathy. Outside of a few heals and one busted power, it's a useless set. It was designed for crowd control yet few of the CC abilities matter. Ego Blade is fine overall, and fixing them to make yet another paid archetype is annoying.

Most of this seems to me to be saying "If we can make money on it in the cash shop, it's getting done now. If we can't, it's going to be for next year." SIgh.

@Dblade

Yes, it is really horrible that they try to earn money to pay for the development costs and keeping the game running. You would think they would just long for the privilege of paying to get anyone to play if for free as much as they want.

While I do not agree with all their C-store decisions and what silver players can or cannot do, if it works for them that is fine. It is easy to vote with your wallet if you do not like and if enough people do that, it may change - after all, they lose money on not selling rather than sell some for a lower price.

Why should they give you a free character slot with the purchase of an archetype? They give you 2 slots per account... who says you can't have multiple accounts? I have 3 accounts, so I have 6 character slots. I have purchased 2 archetypes, and they are both on separate accounts.

Just enjoy what you have, you can experience the game from 1-40 and never spend a cent, enjoy yourself and let go of the nerd rage.
