subscription is not the answer, not even by a mile. can you even imagine the outroar it would cause if they did that.... dang.....
We are not talking about physical skin, not like ''pay 5 dollars and you can get pink skin color'' not at all. again as was also mentioned, it is item skins, basically things you can take over your own equipment and your gear would look like that, examples:
basically you pay to look cool. also works for weapons, i personally prefer to just use the ingame looks for weapons, cause i can then see a difference. but the biggest thing i like is when i can take the look from 1 item and stats from another. so i dont have my master of doom character running around with a pink toy sword just cause it has epic stats xD
wooow............. i dont even know how to respond to this. ''we are having a civil discussion, but everybody who disagrees with me is buillying me,'' that is not really how it works. but whatever floats your goat i guess xD
@Thorbjorn42gbf ohhh you mean the ''costume party battle'' thingy? that one was bloody awesome. useless. but awesome xD
like i have a cake launcher, cause logic does not need to apply
but yeah you are correct. p2w is a doom for games. also just suddenly going ''well we decided to go subscription based, even though we have said from the start we wont do that'' is just not going to happen.
as mentioned a million times, ''regret'' items, costumes. maybe dyes if they add it, i know ESO recently revamped the mount system so every mount speed and stats are tied to your character so you can buy a horse for 10k gold (wont take longer than few hours to get) or you can pay some money to get a cooler looking horse (shadow steed ftw)
but pay to skip and pay to win are generally not a good idea. it can be accepted a bit more in a f2p game, but in a b2p it would make the game go up in flames... literally....
