    if being f2p is a bad thing, then you should be wary of it I guess?

    There is a ton of f2p stuff out there right now and most of it is crap.

    TF2 seems to be the exception on account of it already sold a ton of copies and also they have a big in-game store now.

    I just hope Hawking turns out substantial and also good?

    Super Monday Night Combat is f2p and it is fantastic

    I mean I guess I am not trying to say that Free to play is categorically awful.

    Just that something being free to play as opposed to costing dollars is going to cause me to look closer at it and be "hmm"

    logically speaking shouldn't you be more wary of non-f2p games, since you have to give them your money BEFORE you get to actually play the game and see how you like it?

    what's essentially important to me is that you can't buy with money dollars an advantage over other players

    in SMNC, the only thing that is not completely cosmetic that you can buy with actual money is unlocking new pros, of which there are not that many. All the stuff that gives you an actual in-game advantage can only be acquired by playing the game and earning the in-game currency, and that's just the way I likes it.

    No it's fine. I really dislike Super Monday Night Combat and Tribes Ascend because of the pay stuff that makes me feel like a dead weight for my team.

    You've got a powerful ally in this fight.

    I am ok with F2P if you can get the content in some way anyway. In particular if the stuff that is only pay doesn't really affect gameplay. Like TF2. Granted, TF2 wasn't originally designed for that.

    Also I don't think I've gotten any signups. https://playhawken.com/?ref=73d9ju6d

    basically, F2P is fine as long as isn't also P2W

    It also just makes it feel less substantial to me. Which may be dumb on my part. Their method of collecting money shouldn't affect the game itself

    Free to play worked well with World of Tanks, I found. It was fun to play and I didn't feel really disadvantaged.

    again, you can't outright buy, with actual money, any powerups that actually enhance your performance in SMNC

    the only thing that can be paid for with actual money that affects gameplay, at all, is which pros you have access to, and they can also be unlocked by spending your in game fun-bucks

    the game does have a stupidly steep learning curve, though

    2 more referrals needed. Link is up there.

    So do we have any more details about this game besides that it is mechs and it is F2P? Any clue on if there is a leveling system or in-game currency alongside real cash dollars? Campaign (probably not)?

    Re: Tribes: right now you can pre-order the game for $30 and get a bunch of gold and a lifetime VIP boost and a free 30-day boost. So it's practically buying the game.

    Also you are totally not "dead weight" if you never spend a dollar on the game.

    pretty sure I read that there's no single player component.

    Apparently this is going to initially be released for PC. Meaning, it could come to xbox.

    There is an NDA in effect for the closed alpha, makes it kind of hard to talk about the game openly, but I'm in the alpha.
