Even if the game does go with the subscription model, it's going to also include microtransactions in some form. That's the state of gaming, and Square Enix is after a profit. They didn't remake this whole game for sh*ts and giggles. They're trying to make some money off it.
Oh come on. It's been fun until now, and it actually sounded like a real discussion - but more and more it looks like
you are trying really, really hard to argue for the sake of arguing. Most of the active writers here at Allakhazam do
not like the idea of a microtransaction-funded game. We also explained several times that microstransaction on top
of a subscription model is a complete no-go. We also explained SE may have made some mistakes, but they are not
lunatic; especially since the Japanese playerbase (my personal impression) is just as much against microtransactions
as we here are. We also explained how microtransaction games attract a whole lot of undesirables, which is just one of
so many reasons why many of us would simply take our money somewhere else if SE, by some miracle, should shift
its stance. Guy, what do you want? It's getting boring, Mr. poubelle2.
