(Last edit and i will let this thread die I apologize for constant edits, I am bad at the edit game) Riot Squads return to Defcon 1 (From Defcon 5), they have "fixed this", for those who want to any further scrutinize further actions from DN, then go to Defcon 2 and observe.

OBs being FP priced: https://www.greybox.com/dreadnought/en/forum/topic/4700/

EmptyTuxedo's explanation: https://www.greybox.com/dreadnought/en/forum/topic/4674/

(sorry for horrible formatting, this section needs to be up here) Edit: Supposedly we're supposed to hear more from tuxedo (Soon TM). but I hope for his and SixFoot's sake (Yager as well) that the reasoning is extremely good and valid and that there is indeed more missing or that this is a prank done by the intern.

However from what we did hear from DN_Thor (thank you btw for taking your time to attempt to lower the hatred but Tuxedo's post will be a make it or break it), GP will be earned in normal play if it was implemented correctly and the Officer Briefings would be still behind the GP Pay Wall. If this is the case, this is an entirely horrible idea. Officer briefings are game changing items, not cosmetic, they should be behind an FP wall instead of the GP wall.

Opening post before the edit: This is straight up P2W. Fix this or you'll be losing a bunch of players over this. There is no FP Option.



I will edit this OP to add information that said the devs would NOT do this.

From discord:


'Member when SixFoot tried to justify making Dreadnought P2W? I Do! No seriously I 'member! Also 'member "The Article"? I 'member!
SixFoot, a very accurate company name. They only bury their games Six Feet under.

Things that are direct power upgrades, that are UNPURCHASABLE by ingame grind methods, are not acceptable in a f2p game.... or at least, one that I will be playing and paying money into.

^ where they state it will be free to play.

EDIT: An impromtu roundtable is being held

Key point: you will be able to earn GP in some way ingame to be able to buy these OBriefings.

I just stopped working on my Tactical Cruiser Guide. This either is reverted or I will not restart work on it, let alone waste another second on the game. You have said repeatedly that it would never be pay to win. You are about to squander all of the trust you built over years.

Yeah this is just straight forward pay to win... putting some of the most powerful modules behind a pay wall will lose you a giant amount of the playerbase, especially cause it was always said that DN is gonna be free2play with real money only being charged for cosmetics...

My feedback: Remove GP from all ship modules/officer briefings and make it(FP) a system that functions entirely from actually playing the game itself. Use GP for purely cosmetic items and, maybe, buying ship chasis.

I will be MORE than happy to spend near-excessive amounts of real money on cosmetics if it means supporting a game I enjoy playing without feeling obligated to spend money on.

This is unacceptable. I only bought a Founder because we were assured time and time again there would be no p2w. Not only is this p2w but this is behind a flippin paywall. If this is the new stance of the company I would like a refund of my founders effective immediately as the product I bought is not as advertised.

This is absolutely pay to win. FP should be the only thing that buys abilities and modules.

This is completely counter to what the game was described as during those round tables. This is blatant pay to win and I am definitely not sure I want to take part in a game with that much of an advantage going to those who pay through their wallets.

List of Must Have Officer Briefings in my opinion:

Desperate Measures
Module Amper
Slow & Steady
Adrenalin Shot
Reinforced
Engine Rigger

Would be 1500GP or 15€ I would have to spent.
I would be ok if you guys bloat the FP prices a bit more but this way is not the correct one following your stance this being not Pay To Win.
