  1. Then I feel like that would be false advertisement at least to the people who bought the game when it wasn't free to play. Even if it doesn't replace the original ladder it would inevitably divide the playerbase and restrict "proper" competition to the paid ladder.
  2. As a one time payment... maybe. Used to be a paid for game after all. I was specifically talking about making a ladder subscription based on top of full price for a game that originally came with that ladder included.
  3. Get rid of the bloated battery immediately, it is potentially dangerous. If your sole concern is your data, smashing it with a hammer (after removing the battery) is probably enough to ensure nobody tries to mine it for your personal information on the journey to disposal. Consider that they'd be investing time and money on the chance that you didn't lock or wipe it, even if they could repair it.
  4. If you think this is a gotcha you're sorely mistaken, that is 100% correct. At least the toys aren't potentially unlimited additional purchases on top of the full price food though. You can write off all types of child abuse that don't involve physical harm this way.
  5. If you don't see how they're relevant then I guess that's your own fault Systematically making kids feel bad over not having a product isn't the same as parenting. I do care about kids being exploited for financial gain, yes.
  6. I don't care, the argument you made can be used to defend scams just as easily. If you blame the victim you can justify almost anything. You could also theoretically avoid being murdered by carrying a gun and being trained in martial arts, that doesn't mean murder should be legal because if you let someone murder you it's your own fault. I just explained why it's still bad even if the child gets no money from their parents. I don't care about your personal anecdotal experience in a time when the videogame market was drastically different from now. There are large scale studies
  7. Ah yes, I suppose then if I scam you that's on you for falling for it. It doesn't have to be $40k for it to be predatory and ridiculous. It's doesn't matter if the parents know, it's still predatory marketing directed at vulnerable audiences. Even if the parent tells them "no" the kid is still going to feel bad for missing out and pressured to spend their own pocket money.
  8. Meh, I don't find it funny but I don't think it harms anyone
  9. Yeah, and your personal experience is obviously representative of the entire population including children and problem gamblers. Clearly, game companies keep shoving microtransactions into full price games because nobody buys them. Satellite radio isn't required for your airbag to work. Until this becomes the norm and you can't not buy it if you want to drive a car.

  12. The i7 plus the RAM alone brings you to £437. You can't fit motherboard, case, power supply, cooler and storage in £63. If you want to spare some money definitely lose the rgb fan and thermal paste which are useless. By the way, you DO need a cooler for that CPU as it doesn't come with one.
