Free to play but you MUST spend money on in game content & dlc. I know this is how those companies make their money but no thanks

Spend to get $2 back... Just go away with this crap and give us the old reward system back.

Why does it say this at the end "The FREEdom Rewards are already live and will run until February 28th." yet the article talks about things go until end of march?
Iceberg Right Ahead

A better reward program would have given you in game currency for getting so many achievements, since the games are basically giant time sinks it might get you to invest a little bit of money into the game to try and progress faster.

It at least doesn't sound as bad as this "exchange money for less money" promo.

why the fuck would anyone do that?
Funny how your question matches your profile pic.
To do or not to do. THAT is the question.

By "play free-to-play games" this really means "pay money to play free-to-play games" and get a little bit back.
Exactly
Yeah kind of misleading, I assumed they were going to reward people for actually playing the games x number of hours, oh well. more power to the people already spending $ on these.

I'm not complaining they don't have to give any $ back I just don't think this is going to get anyone to spend $ who wasn't already spending $

Hmm do know if I like this direction of F2P. I normally avoid these types of games and this doesn't make me want to play them.

Love it how so many people hate free to play games.

You are born free in this world but you don't drive a Ferrari without paying shit loads of money for it.
You can play F2P games like Neverwinter for free but you can't ride that epic mount of yours without spending some money to get it. Oh wait, you can if you collect and save money for it. Just like you get your Ferrari in real life.

No free to play game on One has a pay-wall. Meaning you can't progress in the game without paying. You can play the games absolutely for free. But that guy who just ran next to you with their golden shorts and purple unicorn that shits rainbows is so cool! Well guess what. So is that Ferrari you saw yesterday on Miami Beach.

Jesus Christ people get a grip of yourselves and stop nagging.

Those evil swine at Microsoft! You mean they're giving you additional incentive to subscribe to LIVE than just multiplayer, and Games with Gold? I wish they'd stop adding value to things like that. roll
We don't stop playing because we get old; we grow old because we stop playing.

Depends how you view it. It is free to drive on the highway but you need a car to do so, which costs money.
