I don't think most Legacy players are necessarily against giving other folks the chance for a price break. That's up to SE to decide.

Oh, if only I could troll that hard. For all I know, it be more or less successful depending upon one's hair and scalp type... but is it really that surprising that a product whose name is a portmanteau of [Lie] + [Sh*t] turns out to be unnecessary?

I thought the same thing, too, when my spouse brought it up. The first couple weeks were dubious at best, but then as I rounded the third week my hair was just... normal again. That was two months ago. I've never looked back.


In the worst case scenario, my significant other apparently finds my "natural scents" rather desirable. I usually use girly stuff that smells like vanilla, birthday cake, and blackberries, because I like the way it smells. Always hated the chemical smells of the man-washes that were supposed to smell like cologne.

I tried for a week and gave up. A well-placed breeze would tangle my hair so bad that a brush would get stuck in it and could stay there all day. The deal killer, though, was that my dogs fell in love with whatever smell was coming off my head. I enjoy my dogs company but I don't enjoy it so much that they try to lick and bite my hair whilst I'm sitting on the couch.

I paid 50-60$ for mmos and 15$ (a month) when I was a broke student, I don´t think its that expensive, just mean that I wont be able to buy as much beer or sushi that month :P If your friends can't effort, then perhaps they shouldn't spend any money :P

You can compare to a night out with friends. Personally I pay more for 1 night out a month, than I do for a MMO.
1 night out is probably 12 hours or so of fun, where a MMO is like 15-25hrs of fun every week :P For me at least >_> Sometimes even more XD

Nobody is arguing if $15 a month is much or if you can afford bear or sushi or whatever decisions in your life you have. This is not a F2P vs P2P argument. Stay out.

Considering how neurotic some Legacy members get on the Lodestone, I'd be positively astonished if there weren't at least a half-dozen shirt-ripping nerd rage threads started over there should such an offer be made. At least I wouldn't want all that popcorn I have ready for the occasion to go to waste. Smiley: popcorn

I just spent $15 for Guacamelee which I'll be lucky to get 8 hours out of.

All the best, critically acclaimed titles offer shorter and shorter experiences. Braid, Journey, Fez (though... Fez can be much much longer) so I never understand the argument against P2P.

When I'm subscribed to an MMO I save money because I'm not buying all these shorter games every month.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

Ostia: Hey wint, this could be a cool idea to generate a lot of extra revenue for SE while catering to the anti legacy player crow.
Wint: Cool idea, i think it has merit.
Random noob#1: **** THAT! If people cannot buy beers and get high, they have no reason to be playing an MMO!
Ostia: But but... We are not discussing that, this is not a P2P vs F2P issue, we want to give SE LOTS OF MONAY!
Random noob#2: **** SE AND **** GIVING THEM MONEY! I JUST BOUGHT A BURRITO FOR $15 DOLLAHS!

Seriously guys, nobody is arguing if the game is worth $15 or not. Also that argument vs F2P got old real quick last week, come up with something new.

Is that not the only argument againts P2P vs F2P that we have seen over and over and over again, how $15 a month brings more entretaintment than drinking 3 beers a tusday night ? Because other than in a P2P vs F2P argument, i do not even see, why we are arguing over $15 dollars a month, nobody is arguing if is worth it or not ? Are we ? Who is ? Nobody is, so bringing that argument makes no sense.

Too expensive, words in the thread title, are directly related to the monthly fee. He was simply demonstrating how to easily justify the monthly fee. Pretty sure Killua was arguing that $15 a month was too high when he made this post.

What I found interesting about the main forums, was the reaction to people's reactions. Everyone keeps posting how their missed opportunity to gain legacy status was the most sympathetic one. The first post wasn't even met with an aggressive response, yet after the 10th post, people were supposed to just respond with great kindness and understanding. So now, legacy members are these elite bullies, because they're tired of the pointless complaining.

There's nothing abnormal about seeing something you're interested in, fulfilling the requirements to get it, and getting annoyed when a person who didn't qualify complain over and over that their accomplishments, which have nothing to do with it, should be equal to what was asked to earn said <Insert prize here>. The very same thing happened when they gave away free relic weapons for just clicking your bed. 3-5 threads (hundred pages+) spawned with people asking to keep "just one" relic (You know, for just playing this crappy game this long). These same people who didn't qualify for it in game. Yet, when people who did the work spoke out, they were "elitist scum," who want to be special.

People are allowed to post whatever they like. Just as people are allowed to flame the **** out of them, when they post something that makes no sense. I wonder what forums would be like, if people could post idiotic things and get kind responses. Smiley: eek Trolls might cease to exist!

****, if you drink the kind of beer I drink, a $50 tab is not unheard of by the time the night is over.

It's wildly easy to break $50 on a bar tab, especially if you tip well.

Good thing I don't drink very often! My defense against alcohol is to run and work out like a crazy person, which is very difficult to do with alcohol in your gullet.
