Weird Free2Play
Posted by Tobold's Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 February 2013, 2:29 am
As Leo Tolstoy's says at the start of Anna Karenina, MMORPG subscription models are all alike; every Free2Play model is Free2Play in its own way. Is it pay-to-win? Can you only buy fluff? Or does Free2Play allow those with more money than time to make up for the difference? And it seems that every game has a new answer to these questions. But the weirdest one I have seen up to now landed in my mailbox today: "Reveal Your True Power: The Lineage II Underwear Event!"

Apparently you can not only buy sexy underwear for your Lineage II avatar, but that underwear actually has stats! Obviously you are far more powerful if you wear a sexy man-string than if you only wear boring boxer shorts! And finally I understand all those upskirt shots in Asian MMORPGs: You need them to check your gear!
