Sir, I am not whining..I am presenting my view on things, and indeed if you had put a little extra care into reading my post, you would see that I acknowledge that my view isn't the only one and that indeed, I could be just having too high standards that only very few people like me have.
I will not go through and explain where I get my view from again, since that is already in my first post - I did a great amount of throat clearing in order to get my view across and you are of course free to not agree, but please..do not call it whining, because it isn't.
No your post is well written, I'm not directing at you my thoughts on the 'people' generally in the community already who have started whining, I never specifically called you a 'whiner', but if that is how it seemed, you have my apologies. However, there has been many topics already discussing the P2W aspect, and you do touch on it. Irrespective of your personal view on the subject, I wish people with closed minds, and again, this is a general statement, would give the developers at least the time to layout their plans to the community before going nuts over P2W 'might's and if's'. This goes for you too, maybe not the P2W, but certainly about other aspects of the game you seem disappointed about. Give the dev's sometime to outline their plans, hardly anything is know yet.
Yes you most likely wont get a 'story driven' Single-Player game, and if that is something you really wanted, you have my sympathies. However, it seems apparent we will get a story-driven multiplayer game, that allows the community to interact with it, bringing it to life. I'm very excited about that prospect.
I played MW4 for 5 years solid, was it a good game? It was ok, the single-player campaign took what? A day to complete or less. It was pretty boring overall and had no re-playability, but cost lots of money to make. I sure as **** never played MW4 of 5 long years for the single-player. I played for the multiplayer, the NBT league, which added depth and community. This is what makes a good lasting game, not a $50 spend out for 20 hours of gameplay and a half baked multiplayer. I'd rather a game that will give continued support and evolution in the Sci-Fi brand and lore I love.
Single-Player games only give so much entertainment. Would you play Tabletop Battletech on your own? It's kinda boring right? Way more fun when there is other people to pit yourself against. Same goes for the computer games. People like to interact. And it makes better business sense.
