Limited Free to Play idea to boost player count

Postby Imperator5 » 11 March 2017, 18:48

I was thinking, would it be possible to boost the playerbase and thus the possible sales of the game by making it free to play, but with a twist?

Free to play would only allow you to play ONE race out of the 4 original ones, and only with MP and Skirmish/Custom games unlocked, so no Campaign.

This way they would get a taste of the game, but to unlock all 4 playable original races, they would need to buy the 40 Euro version.

Regular DLCs are 7 euros. Game is 40 Euros.

This way it would not be really free to play. Rather we could call it as a demo intended to lure potential buyers into making a purchase?

Please help me change skirmish to be customisable. Its very important for PVE players.

why are all these popping up?
its a bad idea
whether full or partial its a bad idea
people are cheap bastards, there are already people cheezing the system to play it 100s of hours with continuous refunds
its just an easier way for assholes to be cheap

if there where wait times of more then 15seconds i could kinda understand it (but not really)
but there arnt, at any time you find a match in 10
all the DOOOOOOM!!!! people keep shouting about is foolish, the end is not nigh

Hope you are right, I really want this game to get a Necron and Tyranid DLC.
