People seem to confuse pay to win with making enough money to keep the lights on......just because certain mechs would be only available for premium purchase does not make them any better than the more common ones. You can only pay for so much lolipop crap before it gets old. All those camo and fuzzy dice isn't going to be able for them to charge a premium amount because people just won't pay it. Sure maybe a few of you would buy a polished **** if it had battletech stamped on it but most won't and you need most to finance the game.
Well this is the fine balance of F2P games. They do need income from either other sources or from the F2P community but how they do that would be like. . . guessing when they release open beta . .
thing would have to be priced correctly with plenty of variety for plays to buy from. Say Clan Mechs (probably be the most expensive), Perm account and vanity items.
Clan ammo for me is a MASIVE NO NO as it gives an advantage over other players unless it just means u could carry more ammo than normal not dealing ridiculous damage.
If im really honest probably CBills and I would expect alot of players would too.
