Then again (per the video), sometimes it feels like Blizzard fans are the ones waiting to be let into the club outside...just insert either launch week issues joke or waiting for good gear to drop joke, either one works.


That video was made by someone who left Diablo 3. Try again.

It's a FREE to play game.


None of the F2P games are truly free, as you know. Most nickle and dime you to death, but it sounds like MH is killing you with twenties. I bet most game companies end up making loads more money once they go "free to play" than they did using a subscription only model because people love to impulse show, especially digitally. Not to mention the people who stay subscription only AND buy from the e-store.

I'll just leave you with this quote that summarizes the game industry as a whole because it's so very true.

The fact that you can pay for permanent account buffs (for a ridiculous amount of money) really turned me off the game. It's just so full of app-style 'freemium' cash grab mechanics that it's sickening.

Otherwise it was fun albeit lacking a lot of polish.

Free to play should not mean bend me over backwards imo. I like league of legends because mostly your just buying cosmetic stuff like skins. Having to buy heros though is incredibly stupid and imo they would make more money not selling hero's and instead selling skins as more people would play.

Only reason I write this is I hope someone working on hearthstone is listening :)

I tried it... Well.. It is buggy, and lacks the character RPG feel? Maybe becuse it's not a fantasy setting? Something about smashing cars and seeing buildings reminds me of the old Teenage mutant ninja turtles arcade game.. :/ lol

Well that's a joy, I was getting tired of the poe threads, I guess it is MH from now on?

DotA 2 is not like that :)

You have every hero that is in the game from the get-go. You also have a chance to get any item that has value too (like mythical items) and none of the items impact the game itself. So everything is pretty much cosmetic (if you disregard tournament tickets)

Not sure how ESO will be either--they cannot get away with the typical F2P shenanigans so it may be one of the more truly F2P games upon release.

Having played the game myself, I would say it isn't a flop, just the F2P pricing model is fairly off, and the incentive to purchase is so high it's laughable (in reference to stash, mainly).

The game itself is kinda fun, but it doesn't have that "Sit down and play for 12 hours straight" appeal that Diablo II (and Diablo III had for the first week--if you were able to play that is) did.

I'm not sure how long I'll play that game, honestly. I started with Thing and he's fun enough... kinda dull though. Tried Scarlett Witch and she's...kinda shoddy. But she's only level 2, so that's an unfair judgement.

start of the game everyone is mostly same 5 heros which ruins the experience


You can find more heroes in the game from completing stuff and also as drops - free but takes time.

costumes cannot change based on gear


Costume are also drops and you can find them - also is free and takes time.

always in a party with people


Option to turn off auto party - it takes intelligence to look through options.

sometimes joining dungens and is already half cleared out


Join your own group and stick together - again turn off auto join

Yet they can drop and thus are free.

The marketing department for MH is retarded, that's for sure. They turned everyone off to it.

Game isn't that great either.

I agree on both points. I feel like the overpriced everything far too much and as for the game the look of it is a bit bland.

They are available in a bit of a roundabout way - Daily Missions drop a Cube Shard the first time you do them in a 24 hour period, and if you don't want to vendor them for the 500 credits apiece you can turn batches of them in (two quests that require 3 then 5, after that it's 10 at a time) for Fortune Cards.

Fortune Cards can give a number of things - more often will get Exp/Item Rarity boost potions, retcon potions, or a straight buff to XP or Item Rarity find for a while - but they can drop a random pet among their other options.

I must be in the wrong forums, I thought this was Diablo 3......

You must be. Because this forum on the D3 forums is for non-D3 topics.

If by a flop you mean better than every other ARPG available atm then yes, it's the worst game ever made. That's still including all the QOL things it lacks, and performance issues it suffers from this early after release too.
