Ya, I think that’s a fair assessment. I think most people have outright accepted that Clan Wars was Pay to Win mode, and were wise to avoid it.
Any time whether or not Crossout was pay to win has been discussed, the general consensus has been, oh hell no, but conceded that Clan Wars probably was, and if you didn’t like it, just don’t play that, and that was what most of us did…now?
Now that Pandora’s box has been opened, and that garbage mode has been thrust upon everybody, I would expect that pay to win dynamic to contaminate the rest of the game, as the developers probably intended.
As a solo f2player, I think this mode is a death knell. As a P2player, my opinion isn’t much different, but has a broader scope. From that perspective, there are a lot of other things, in addition to that, making this game unappealing to me.
I logged on last night, and access to confrontation mode read, “opens in 57 minutes.” Usually, I would just log off at that notice, but this time I decided to go ahead and play for an hour and wait for the mode to open while I played PVP or whatever. Couldn’t do it. I didn’t make it. Not even close.
The current state of the game is awful, and I don’t expect this new incoming update to fix any of it. Add to that the stupid forum crap, and it looks like this game has earned it’s negative popularity rating. They appear to have worked very hard for it.
It’s sad and disappointing. This was my favorite game ever, and I have no idea how they put this cat back in the bag, or fix the system they have now, but I hope they do something, and I don’t think this incoming update is it.
I miss Crossout. Update 2.O is a death spiral that continues to get worse and worse.
That’s JMO, but I’m not just a F2player. I also P2P and spend an average of $100 a year here. I’m sure there are other companies that would appreciate my patronage, but I’m not into 3rd person shooters so much. I came here for the build feature, and character customization. That’s hard to find to the degree Crossout can do it. Impossible? IDK. looks like it.
