    lol Yikes just reading what you get with the first founders pack makes me cringe. That's pathetic. No thanks. =p

    to each their own. Some people just like to spend money on silly stuff though. I made the mistake of getting the top tier founder pack in Neverwinter and I don't even play anymore...
  • Germ_the_Nobody
    haha That's true. I spent $90 on SWTOR and don't play it anymore. Not because it's a bad game though.

    I spent a lot on SWTOR due to never canceling my subscription. >.>\

    I never really could get into the game though always kinda just stopped at lvl 16.

    I really despise this tactic, especially on titles from larger publishers. I understand the logic and now the whole song and dance with all this junk, it just rubs me the wrong way.

    SOE have a history of some real scummy practices in their F2P games over the past few years. I'm wary of paying money to guarantee entry into EQN Landmark early, but unfortunately I need to for business purposes. :(

    I was just going to wait til it came out to be honest. I'm patient.

    I was just thinking about how I hadn't heard about anything for EverQuest Next in a while and then this article pops up. I won't be buying any of the packs because I'm happy to wait for the full game.

    Every beta I've ever participated in has just ruined the game for me either because I fell in love with things a certain way which they decided to change or I simply can't handle the game in an unfinished state and it kills all the hype for me.

    I also kind of agree with Mat, lately there is the huge boom in paying to get into things and then being a tester for the game (Steam Early Access for example). While I love to do this for an indie title the idea of a company with huge resources doing this just annoys me.

    Well technically this isn't even EQNext. It's just a side game. I haven't heard anything on EQNext in awhile either.

    It doesn't seem right to me that consumers have to pay for an unfinished game and play-test it for the developers. Didn't play-testers used to get paid?

    It's like expecting people to pay to proofread a half-written novel.

    This seems like yet another way the video game industry has found to scam additional funds from their customers.

    I'm not sure, but I think all progress might carry over. Otherwise the Alpha Boost is worthless.

    That's not really the point I was making. Irrespective of what perks they attach to the packs, I think it's wrong of developers -especially AAA studios - to be charging players to do their work for them.

    Honestly though most people who do "beta tests" aren't really testing. They're just dipping their toes in the proverbial waters to see if they want to really play the game. Most importantly this is just a sideshoot of the main game from what I understand.
