Well we all know that Tencent is famous for it's pay to win content but we all thought that would change in monster right? LOL couldn't be more wrong.

http://www.p4rgaming.com/tencent-planning-six-paid-expansions-for-monster-hunter-online/

so apparently in the 5th and 6th expansion we'll have to pay tencent to hunt subspecies. Oh whoopieeeeee and considering every single monster they could posisbly use has a subspecies............... we'll be spending some big bucks assuming we ever get it. This is disregarding the expansion pack 1-4 making us pay to get different weapon classes among other things.

Having to pay for weapon types... that's just disheartening. 30 USD per expansion is just rediculous with the number of expansions they are putting out just at the start. And weapon roulettes? Really? I really think the person commenting didn't know much about Monster Hunter and thought you could get weapons as RNG drops. This is all quite worrisome to me.

Having to pay 180 dollars just to get access to all weapons and monsters is ridiculous. And i also read protection scrolls... Seriously?

Lolol derp it's not even so much pay to win but pay to play the game the way it is meant to be played.


It's like paying for 6 games cheap games but still 30 x 6 builds up fast and if they make any further expansions are we going to have to pay for those as well?


Not sure how much are subs in japan so I could be wrong it may be cheaper than paying for frontier in the long run but meh...


Edit: Okay... Just looked at old numbers about 15 dollars every month doesn't sound TOO bad until you multiply. 15 x 12 which also equals to 180 yearly overall you are paying the same price just less frequently. This may be a smart thing I highly doubt they will be expanding the game 6 times in one year but even if they do MHFO and MHO will cost about the same

MHFO is made by a much better company though and has much more content. Also this is under the false pretense that MHO is f2p which it might not be.

Yes but MHFO has been around since 2007 and has been frequently updated ever since then. So it's unfair to compare the two games in terms of content.


MHO hasn't been released yet so you don't know how much or how little content the game will have so give them a break at least until the game is out.


Oh and if you read it thoroughly enough it says all the business aspects of the game is being handled by tecent games. The gameplay itself is being left to capcom so it still plays like MH not someones interpretation of the game or at least that is what they are hoping to get.

Maybe they want it to be more RPG than before?

It definitely makes no mention of paying to unlock weapon classes.

All weapons meaning all individual weapons, not classes. Since this particular company has often used microtansactions, it's likely the updates will be like that, but a lot larger. Even though he denies that it's a pay-to-win kinda thing (as far as that's possible in MH), it does seem like that. Of course, if more powerful weapons go hand-in-hand with more powerful monsters, then it's simply more content.

Seems like we'll only be able to judge this after we've seen the way the content is spread out.

Should it happen like this, the hype train will have gone off the rails.
And crashed.
And exploded.

Screw this /pokr/

But I suppose time will tell, no need to flip out just now. Maybe it'll change...
Hopefully it will.
