Wardrobe access for non-premium players


Recommended Posts

Just now, WhiteCrow said:

A costume inventory locked behind a subscription does not make the game pay to play, and if your premium expires then the outfits stay in there. Unless you take them out, you don't need to use up any space.

My argument still stands, this is a convenience feature and it should stay locked to people who pay for the convenience.

But is useless, if you can't change costumes everytime you want, there's no point in a wardrobe.

 

This is not fun, not fun at all. NCsoft is like Blizzard, doesn't like fun.

Wardrobe is part of premium, thats what makes it premium lol

I have premium but I agree it should be free. It was not designed to be premium exclusive. Did the original version even have a premium? Premium generally gives extras -- not unlocks built-in basic fe

How come only only Premium players can use the wardrobe and not the non-premium players cant? Every player gonna gather bunch of skins and need a place to put them in. The warehouse and inventory will

Well if you are poor irl you can claim benefits,what company do if they become poor? Should I tell you the story of Lineage,Tabula Rasa,City Of Heroes? Should I tell you on which road L2 and Aion went? Should I point out all of the other games out there that turn on the wrong way? And guess why? Because they want revenue,because Korea don't care how but they want numbers and they want big numbers.Should I post you ther financial reports that are avalible for everyone?

 

As a player for over decade of NCsoft games I'm far far far from White Knight.I'm just not naive,or I don't belive everything should be for free and blame Obama or whoever there is because is not.People in america complain about petrol price as being soo expensive,while here in EU we pay few times that and we may not like it but we somehow deal with it.So here you have to deal with what you have and what the company/game is offering you in exchange of...NOTHING.You don't have to buy a single thing to play the game,enter big dungeons,pvp,pve,do arena,chat,faction world bosses etc.You don't have to spend a dime.Of course there is luxury things that IF you WANT them YOU have to pay.

In the past they was giving some garbage bags in the shop for FREE but if you want fancy good bag you had to PAY.See where I'm going?

Honestly, no, I don't see where you are going with this.

The game is free to play simply because will not sustain itself with a subscription model.
So, they need people to play to buy costumes, consumables and pay for premium to get money.

But if only people willing to pay will pay, they gonna be lonely, so they need people playing for free.

 

And... I still not want to pay a subscription just to have a feature. I still has to buy the costumes. And the slots for more characters. And I still don't know what more because I'm still low level.

 

So... what's the issue? We're the villains because don't pay a subscription? And the pay for all the things that they sell to us?

 

I'm confused. I'm supposed to pay or stop playing because otherwise I'm robbing them?

What you would like more then? Instead of unlimited dungeons entries f2p to be restricted to eg 2 per day and sell reset scrolls in the shop? Would you be more happy? Fancy things are luxury and luxury items be it in game or in real life cost money.Wardrobe doesn't affect your game play however you look at it.It seems is good to use for some,but not a mandatory.If you want to have a bigger and better toy(let's say vehicle) you have to pay extra.

 

Franky money doesn't grow on trees and they have to make them somehow and yet to keep ther promise that the game is not going p2w or alike.Because IMO taiwan/Japan was 1000 times more P2W then NA/EU atm.Would you like instead of strugling for soulstones just to buy them from cash shop? How about to buy few thousands? I would If I can,and I`ll admit it.I need now 500 along with 100g and 18 evo stones,and I'm very limited how to get that with the current patch,no beans and nothing worth to sell(I have plenty of Ncoins).Yeah if we went down to taiwan path I would simply buy soul stones,keep a portion for personal use,sell the rest and literally im done farming the said amount of things just spending few minutes in internet using my card,or in this case as I already have the coins - just few clicks in F10...

I just want to have the wardrobe without paying monthly for that.

 

What's the point of paying a sub to have less features than in a P2P game?

There is no reason to not make it available for all players. Literally none. You even lose it after premium stops.... Most games at least let you keep premium stuf like this after it stops or dont make it part of the premium at all.

There is also no reason that they cant do this, they have changed enough in the code, so there is no reason they cant change this.. hell its easy to change it but i wont go into that,.,,

Its the only reason why i dont buy dragon pouches and costumes.

Every single person in this thread saying that 'white knights' are defending ncsoft, that this game is pay to play, or anything of sorts. You need to get your heads out of your *cricket*. Have you EVER played any other MMO? Having a separate bank tab that is designed for costumes is in no way making the game any less fun for anyone that has half a brain. If you're running out of space already then you need to rethink on what's important to keep. You want every single costume in the game? Then *cricket* get premium.

What he said. You're already getting a damn game for free people. You want more and if they give you more you'll want even more. Stick to your guns NCsoft, you guys want more, go premium.

Holy. The amount of brainless people who comment with the "just get premium" attitude, or should be kept as "premium"-- truly truly brain-dead. THE PREMIUM DOESN'T LET YOU KEEP THE WARDROBE WHEN IT EXPIRES. For god's sake, freaking read. So what if you have PREMIUM!?? After your PREMIUM is gone, your sole reason for buying the PREMIUM will be gone. Then you are forced to buy your fancy PREMIUM again just to keep it.

 

The stupidity of these comments is too absurd. Are you idiots even real?

What makes you dotards think free players complain for free shit? It's the logic behind it. Quality> Quantity.
I'm a PREMIUM member, and I'm complaining because wth, I paid for the PREMIUM and I can't keep my wardrobe afterwards?

What makes them think I will want to buy it again? Which moron will keep buying the PREMIUM just to secure the wardrobe-- come at me. Because you clearly need to be educated on how this money-milking system works.

Again you're one of the whiners, do you understand what CONVENIENCE means? You DO NOT NEED the feature so stop asking for free stuff when you already have the WHOLE game for free.

Are you illiterate? Which part of what I said gave you the idea that I wanted it for free?
If you can't read, I'll gladly help you.

And whiner? I don't think you even understand the word whiner means. I'm whining for free stuff? I PAID for the wardrobe system only to find out I have to PAY again just so I can keep it TEMPORARY? As I have stated, I am WILLING to PAY for it, but not when I HAVE TO pay for it again and again. That kind of subscription is far from "CONVENIENCE."

Let me down myself and explain this to you.
You do realize there are people who pay for this feature, right? With that being said, people like us who are willing to pay for this feature can't even keep the outfits we're going to get without premium sub. PREMIUM SUB. NOT FREE. So tell me, which part of what I just said was even remotely close to whining?

I don't even know what to say. When premium expires you do not lose any outfits and you are free to take them out.

 

And you are paying for a bunch of benefits ingame PLUS WARDROBE! It's a CONVENIENCE that is NOT NEEDED. DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND THAT?

 

You sub and you get things, you lose sub and you lose those things. If you DO NOT WANT WARDROBE DON'T PAY FOR IT. What's so hard to understand that it is not a mandatory feature in the game to have? You understand that the wardrobe did not exist at all when the game first launched. They planned it to be premium only here, and they said it would be so. If you're just figuring out that you lose wardrobe when you lose premium, then you should have looked it up before buying.

Reading through this, is a bit ridiculous, with the "fighting" that seems to be going on.

Now, wardrobes have been like this in many games and MMO's as a privilege to those that play, the game simply follows those traditions.

We shouldn't over react on this issue either, but perhaps you should ask for a way that we could get this privilege for free, limited time of course. Such as winning in an event and this could be a prize. This could perhaps be the "middle ground". 

I can see how this could be frustrating, but the game must make a profit some how, and they are definitely not the first to have a wardrobe as a privilege.

Oh man, not only are you slow, you are definitely in the brain-dead department.
When did I EVER SAY you lose the outfits? Holy jesus.
Keep it under the "Wardrobe" topic, please. I'm not talking about the other benefits premium members get.

Okay so, when your premium expires, you can't hold your outfits there anymore. AND GUESS WHERE YOU HAVE TO PUT THEM??? IN YOUR FREAKING LIMITED SLOTS INVENTORY THAT YOU TRY SO HARD TO EXPAND AND CAN ONLY EXPAND SO MUCH. OH OH and the good part is, OR OR YOU CAN DROP THEM? YEAH? SO EASYYYYY.

AND guess what? Those hours you spend grinding for those costumes become useless and a waste of time.
And let me tell you something, fashion is part of the core game, there's no reason for them to come out with so many outfits and put on a restriction like that.

"...the wardrobe did not exist at all when the game first launched."
"They planned it to be premium only here."
Just based on those statements, I'm done trying to down myself so low for someone like you to understand what customer satisfaction is. FYI, I am fully aware of the wardrobe deposit and the losses from having your premium removed, but far from the point.

Good day.

I hope NCsoft locks wardrobe access to ONLY the paying customers. You guys have employees to pay, rent to pay, taxes to pay and shareholders to answer to.

 

Contrary to popular belief, this game WILL become Pay2Win when they release wardrobe for free because they will then have to make money off a Pay2win feature which is something we dont want.

 

Its astounding how some people just download a free polished game which runs on paid-for servers by NCsoft and demand a vanity feature for free. If NCsoft releases this feature for free players, they lose me as a paying customer. Simple as that.

Are you actually stupid lol? The outfits remain in the wardrobe after your premium expires, you can't add new ones, only remove the ones you have in there already.

 

Before calling other people brain dead make sure you aren't yourself. The amount of dragon pouches needed to expand the secondary storage is minuscule compared to the inventory expansion cost. If you want space do that.

 

And you saying 'just based on those statements...' is just showing how childish you are acting. No one complained then, it was introduced and everyone was happy. You should be happy you get to play the game at all.

 

Customer satisfaction? You're saying they should sell everything for a one time purchase and then lose income because a couple of people can't manage their inventory space? Spare me.

If they're gonna make me pay for the basic stuff such as inventory/bank space(not even tradeable), then lock game features behind a paywall then the founder pack money they got from me is also the last they'll see. Simple as that.

Sorry. I just don't see the point in continuing to explain to someone who doesn't seem to comprehend what I'm talking about. It seems like you are on about something else entirely different from my point. So, I'll leave that to someone else.

 

And on a side note, it's amusing how you can spout such ridiculous nonsense. "You should be happy you get to play the game at all." And I'm childish?

Why should I be happy that I get play the game? Should I build a shrine and worship it because I get to play ? That makes no sense. A game is nothing without its players. That's like saying a buyer should feel honored that the seller is selling him goodies. Blasphemy!

Anyhow ,I take it that you are fine with paying for every subscription based on this discussion, which is completely fine since you want your money worth it.  So, let's just leave it at that.

 

P.S. Learn to read and don't put words into someone else's mouth. I have never once mentioned anything about "everything for a one time purchase."

I'm not gonna read through all 5 pages, but srsly, I'm not planning on dropping my premium any time soon and I'd love this.  Hell, you want an incentive for premium wardrobe, just make the premium wardrobe shareable across your account while non-premiums are character-bound. (have costumes stack for duplicates in the account wardrobe.)

So many wallet warriors in here.

hell im all for getting the bang for your buck but wardrobe isn't a feature that would effect their income hell i bet it would increase their income because people can now store their newly bought cash shop outfits.

give subs something else instead, to many white knight beta's up in here protecting this companies poor choice on paywalling a feature that should of been f2p.

Do you feel like you are better than people who have actually helped this game flourish with money so that your freeloading ass can sit and play?
