    How much does 370 platinum get you in the store without a discount or sale?
    A large amount of slots and potatoes

    Enough to last you ages, yeah, but you'll also get the same bits so regularly during play it makes it a bit moot.

    Like, i get how it seems bad if you don't play it but if you do you realize how unlike other games where you'd get the currency/same bits very rarely you actually get them so often here there's usually not much point in buying them.

    I don't know where you get your prices from but its isn't the most expensive and it's hardly aggressive. It possibly USED to be expensive when it first came out in 1885 or whenever but its almost cheap by todays standards that EA and the like have been setting, PLUS you don't pay for the game up front. You can get literally everything in game without spending money, you just need to take a little time. They have been actively making it easier and easier to get things without paying money since I've been playing. The fashion frame stuff you mostly would have to pay real money for you dont even need to pay real money for now as it occasionally comes around with their trader, turns up in alerts, or if you cant wait you just sell some of your in game items to other players for plat and but it with that.

    It's a free to play game where you can actually realistically play it for free forever.

    (also without the grind the game is basically nothing and you'd be bored in a week)
    >(also without the grind the game is basically nothing and you'd be bored in a week)

    Good lord I forgot people used this as a defense, what a time to be alive
    That's not really a defense, im simply pointing out that the game is pretty much about having fun while collecting things (there is a story but its not great or long, like most games) so if you are one of these people that absolutely has to have something right now to the point where you will spend real money on it, then you will get bored in a few weeks when you realize there really isnt much else to the game.

    It like pubg. Fun in of its self but no real long term goal. If you could pay RL money for screenshots of you winning at pubg I'm sure they would sell a bunch and them im also sure those same people would get bored in a week and move on.

    You can scoff all you want but in a world where the in game premium items market exists I would much prefer everyone did it the way DE is doing it (now) than how just about every other company around the world is doing it. I actually liked that they weren't pushy and would give you stuff so much I've ended up paying them about the cost of an actual game for plat that im basically not using. (It'll be for slots and potatos probably).

    Yeah but you can't compare it to pubg with netcode that doesn't even work half the time and say its better.

    PUBG has some of the worst networking and gunplay of any shooter I've played.

    I'd literally rather play Arma

    Yeah, the guns in PUBG are one of the few things that actually feel "right"

    Personal opinions should attempt to be kept out of critiquing business practices. There are plenty of people that like either and find either 'fun' so thats not really a good defense/justification. Point still stand though that warframe is actually much less obvious (now) than pubg is with real money transactions. Nothing is locked away from users that don't want to pay for it (like pubg), you never have 'you can get this but you have to pay for it' moments (unlike pubg) and there is no randomness to what you are getting (also unlike pubg). Its just a better model in a game where you need some kind of model for payment (also unlike pubg which you still pay for up front). Realistically the only 'bad' thing in warframe is that you can buy almost every in game item with real money if you wanted to, which would destroy the gameplay for you.

    I enjoy warframe more than I enjoy pubg, but mostly because of the shitty never fixed bugs in pubg that finally got to me.

    There is a little more to it than just simple button mashing.
    Admittedly there is button mashing but it has a lot more going for it than just that.

    Anyway PUBG is pvp and Warframe mostly isn't.

    it's more about spending alot of time figuring out a good meta setup that could potentially steamroll things that seem unkillable. getting the gear needed for it, trying it out, either realizing it didn't work or find out that it did and then start over again since it's not very fun to steamroll stuff all day. Warframe has serious balance issues with mechanics that makes the game either too hard or too easy. It's never a good challenge. Either your "trick" works, or you get oneshotted.

    Wat.

    Sounds like you're a bad.

    In the meantime the sane just take out whatever seems cool and do fine.

    It's rule of cool the game, embrace it, live it, be it.

    I'm (as usual) talking about long high level survival/defence runs, since that's the stuff that entertain me in thet game. But it is so very broken at the moment.
