I think it's a good thing, this update will bring new life to Insurgency Sandstorm.
--The issue of paid cosmetics is only a point of view. You are clearly free to buy them or not. And on top of that if you don't take them you still have access to free updates.
So, I think shopping for skins / cosmetics is a good thing for a small development team that needs SUPPORT. See it as support for future updates. Especially if you buy a single cosmetic at 3 €. (You have to pay a dlc at 3 €) imagine if everyone takes only 1 skin. Well it makes a substantial income for the studio.
--On the other hand, a relationship of trust must clearly be established with the community AND the developers of the game. BECAUSE if we buy 1 and nothing is in the development of the game, well you can go do it yourself....
--But I think that the studio is close enough to its community to set it up and that we give them our confidence, see the streams made with the players and developers or the responses made on steam or twitter directly to respond to the complaints of the players.
Not like some HUGE studio, whose names I would not royally make fun of the world (battlefield for example at the moment)
In short, I think there is a real fear of many players that have do not care about our face with in-game purchases.
And this because of the larger studio who have benefited.
.Do you think you should put everyone in the same basket ?
Other subject: Just an opening
It makes me think a little about the politicians who took advantage of it to put their pockets in it ...
And today as soon as a person with good ideas arrives at the front of the scene it is directly cataloged is for the people have sold their souls to the devil ... Well, their behavior is as rotten as those of the politicians who took advantage of it.
.The basic things between social groups simply come to that of the trust that each person has.
And this is precisely where all the complexities reign.
