PoE has shit-ton of mtx but DLC? I guess you can call every league DLC but content updates in this game are free and only game-altering mtxes i can think of are stashes. but i think it is more like a qol thing. Yeah, this website is new and we cant control everything on the web but i saw it on the /r/pcgaming and it was kinda popular. What do you guys think? It is very important to take the time to level up at the beginning of the game. Whenever you need to poe currency trade, you can turn to U4GM for help. We has poe currency cheap.
Overall seems like a pretty fair description, they have not slammed the mystery boxes and even stated the items are later available for direct purchase and have not buttered up the amount of updates that are released. I’m going to assume where it says “Bulk Order Horse Armor – Excessive amounts of cheap, minor DLC. No randomization involved” it’s referring to the MTX options for direct purchase and could just be a typo. Yeah it does state in the description that by game altering they specifically meant stash tabs, character slots and guild upgrades. Which to be fair stash tabs should be taken with a 50/50 outlook, it should definitely be mentioned, I think at least, to make people aware about them.
In my opinion, I think it’s a more than fair categorization of POE and the direction they are heading. In the last 6-12 months especially, we’ve seen them dramatically ramp up the pushing and promotion of MTX sales and exploitative style gambling mechanics via loot/mtx/mystery boxes.
They’ve started pushing hourly sales programs, only putting up decent items for sale late into the night/morning hours & then the sales being ridiculously bad “3% off” in the end. They’ve hijacked the build of the week series to now be a glorified MTX promotion. They have started pushing sales packs towards new players which lock those inexperienced players into unwittingly purchasing points/packs that have no benefit and don’t allow them to put those purchases towards discounts of good MTX/pack deals. They still insist on using the misleading “points” garbage as a requirement to buy shit in the game, instead of just selling tabs and other basic required inventory needs for a real money value. They then add insult to injury past that point by continuing to advertise and then charge prices in a foreign currency.
