I got an idea free to play needs to die off , I've hated 90% of the ones I've played waste of time .
So you've enjoyed 10% of the F2P games you played and they were completely free. Why on earth would you want them to die off?

What I don't get is how do you actually refer a player to these games? I don't see how to actually refer players from any of these games ...

Your incompetence is honestly ridiculous. Would you rather it go back to normal where you get nothing back for the optional purchase?

Why? The f2p games on the one are nice. The purchases are 100% optional.
Because they are not free on xbox one you need gold to play them and the purchase are 100% rip off

They are free to play with gold. You purchase gold for a separate reason, and the benefit of being able to play online and the f2p online games comes with that as a bonus. It costs you nothing to play the game, it costs you money for the gold.

The purchases are 100% optional. As far as I know these games are not p2w. Most of the purchases are cosmetic, or boosters to speed up the process of leveling etc.

It's not a rip off if it's your choice to purchase them. If you think it is then dont buy it.

Thanks for this post!

I was unaware of the refer a friend rewards for these titles. Might have to see if any friends want to start those games.

My comment was mainly in response to those who were complaining about it--not me complaining about it myself, though I can see how it might come across as the latter.

My response stands regardless.

It not being permanent does nothing for them, and you saying it doesn't either.

Strictly speaking, you DON'T get anything back for the optional purchase. I'm sure you know this, but credits in your Microsoft account aren't actual negotiable currency. It's not money you can do anything with besides use in the Microsoft store. So, to say you actually "got something back" is incorrect, when in actuality, you are getting a partial credit towards future purchase. You do not suddenly have 5% of the purchase you just made back in your bank/paypal account.

Now, how about YOU stop going around using words like incompetence and ridiculous and flaming strangers every 3 minutes because they have a difference of opinion, and chill out by playing some nice freemium games and feeling righteous about how good the 5% store credit is for you.

Troll.

You get reward points that add up to future rewards which can be redeemed for currency, so yes, you do get something out of it. More than you did before this offer, obviously. How am i trolling by pointing that out?

Idiot.

So Gems of War isn't included in this? That's too bad. It's my favorite F2P game on the XB1.
