Any of you played it? It's amazing. It's an MMO FPS, if you liked Pubg, or dayz, it basically a better version of those, fixes every problem I had with those. Extremely fun.

It is definitely not PTW, at least not with real money. A huge part of this game revolves around the in-game market and economy. All money you earn in the game can be achieved by smartly taking advantage of the market (buy low sell high) and from looting valuables in game. So while someone who has a very high currency can buy better gear than someone with low currency, budget fighters can eventually earn their way to the top as well. The advantage this has to a game like pubg, is clear. In Pubg you can drop next to crappy stuff, because the loot is RNG, and get killed by someone who spawned in next to a 4x scope and an M-16, which makes it a little more around luck. Whereas in EFT, you can build your own kit prior to going into a match, exactly how you want. The level of depth that goes into weapon modification is truly mind blowing also. You can deck out a gun in hundreds of ways.

I am curious to how you think it is PTW though. There are different editions of the game you can buy if you are so inclined, but literally everything is attainable through progression in game and by completing quests. And having a gamma container with 9 slots over an alpha container with 4 slots, isn't gonna make a difference at all mid game. At the end of the day your skill with the weapons, and survival is all that matters.

More you pay the bigger the stash, and the more you things you have in your stash.
--> @WaterPhoenix
You can upgrade the stash in game pretty easy. Its stupid to pay for the bigger editions just for that lol

Holy shit, are you shopping at a goddamn Whole Foods or are you just a fatass?

More to the point though $20-40 is pretty average for a computer game and $60 is pretty average for a console game so I see no reason to call this price tag unreasonable. Most humans don't buy a new video game every week lol.

Better quality games generally are priced higher. It's all about how much time you put into it. I've been playing this game in just about all my free time and got it just 2 weeks ago, so i've definitely been getting the value out of it. 44$ isn't much though, unless you work at McDonald's or are a kid who relies on an allowance.

Aren't those items still better to have it at the start though? So maybe it isn't completely ptw but it has some ptw aspects.
--> @WaterPhoenix
Not in the slightest, items dont mean dick. You have to have skill to win period. If your a potato at shooting, situational awareness, and survival you will die until you get good, no item you can get from the higher editions will prevent that, trust me. Also buying the higher edition literally ruins the fun of earning it legitely anyways. You should watch some videos or streams and you will see what I mean.

--> @Lunatic
Do the items do more dmg or have better scopes?
--> @WaterPhoenix
I think you get a few good guns but you will just lose them instantly if you dont know what your doing lol
--> @Lunatic
Eh sure, well it's still expensive as frick so...
--> @WaterPhoenix
lol ok
