So theirs a big debate about this and their should be.

So my concerns are better gear if you pay for it.
Better weapons if you pay for it.
Better equip for DOL if you pay for it.


I personally see the Moicro Transaction being only FLUFF equipment, stuff that doesn't give you a better advantage if you buy it. I hope it doesn't take away from special events SE does. likw X-mas, Holloween...ect

I hope it's just not there at all. Otherwise there are other up and coming MMORPGs I could spend a monthly fee on.

Yeah, I hope they have micro transactions for fluff gear like outfits etc.

It's like the douche-bags will wear their douchebaggery on their sleeves. Quickly identify losers~ w00t. The only way to do that in XI was look out for the Mentor icon next to the douchebags name haha.

Agreed, up to the FFXI thing. I don't know when you started playing but in the beginning when is seemed like very few people knew what was going on it was nice to be able to ask a random player a question that they (essentially) volunteered to answer.

To be honest, I think when they mentioned paying for ingame items, they were a reference to similar items like the baby chocobo in the SE online store that comes with a FFXI item (A mog house furnishing). I think this is what they were talking about, espesially if they are trying to streamline the payment system. Why not use the same system they use for purchasing murchandise off their website?

That's was just my first impression, and I don't know if people know about the Chocobo item (I haven't played FFXI since before the item was released).

My guess is that any micro transatactions will be:

Character server transfer
Character makeover
Furniture
Event-type items, like Moogle Caps or perhaps costumes from old FFXI equipment...

Iono, when I was playing mentor badge or not everyone was helpful and friendly. Although, heh funny story the first thing I saw after making my character was some guy in caps yelling in Sandy ********** YOU RETARDS, I ******* KILL GAME!" - so cool. But that beats WoW where I ask for help and all I get in return is either silence or ********** off nub".

The mentor badge just kinda screamed "oh please ask me things, I know oh so much about the game and I'm just dying to tell you all about it!"

Isn't this the same thread as "Wada's Vision"?
