Becoming a pay to win will kill this game since does who don't pay can't win games. I will boycott this company if that evers happen. I recommend to give the new cards double cost to craft them or else I will see a dead game .
I am pretty tired of cdpr and there. Bugs, delays, lag switchers, third party card tracker abuse, keg failed purchases, crashes, rigged unbalacement of decks, dead archetypes looking at you skellige discard, rigged coin flip, terrible mulligan system, but i still have high hopes and can say Gwent is my favorite game and my only regret was playing the broken midwinter season vernon roche is more of a sign that i should of waited it out lol, Arena riddled with bugs, fix those and ill love it! I post alot of complaints but theyre critical and honest, i report all bugs i encounter, but im sure throne breaker will be worth it! Time means quality majority of the time so we will see them bring an entirely new aspect and gamemode to CCG’s and it will be glorious!
I think you should really reconsider the fact of putting a real currency price to story mode because if this story modes gives you exclusive cards you can use on multiplayer then you are getting on the same issue Hearthstone had. Right now you have a really faithful community that will pay because they like the game but what about the new arriving players that get to the game after 2 or 3 already relesead story modes. They will feel the impotence of not having proper decks to grind because you just need a meta deck with 1 exclusive card to make the deck pay to win (unless you make really bad exclusive cards which wont make sense because no one will buy story mode then). So what did hearthstone did, they changed from 1 expansion and 1 adventure per year to making new card expansions 3 times a year so the only way to catch up on new expansion and quickly hit to testing new brews is to buy a 50 card packs bundle that sometimes comes with more packs like the new expansion that is coming, they also add single palyer modes so people can understand the story about this expansion (prizes of the story mode where new heroes (avatar) or card packs and it is totally free). Having so little time between expansions makes people reconsider if they need a good amount of packs to get into ranked faster and thats where the earnings of the company are. Of course we are talking about a game thats being online for a long time already but their situation and decision making as a company of card game should be considered.
Thronebreaker will be available for purchase with real currency - we will reveal its price as we get closer to the release date. It will add 20 cards to the multiplayer collection. During campaign you will obtain way more cards than that, but they will all be tailored for single-player purposes. Hope this helps.
I would pay anything up to $15 dollars for a full story mode filled with new content and earnable cards, but then it has to be at least like 50h of gameplay, and with ini tiative on multiple playthroughs just like in Witcher games.I think overall a price tag is justifiable since Gwent is an awesome game, you can kill a lot of time with it. I have spent more time on Gwent alone than all 3 Witcher games together Good luck, and whatever you do, dont rush it, polish it (pun intended)
