Should there be non-cosmetic microtransactions in Artifact?
Here is an interesting discussion that has a lot to do with CCG genre. Topic TL’DR — should players be allowed to buy additional cards for real money?
On one hand, real-world CCG cards are expensive, so there’s premise to put a price on them in video games. On the other hand, developers need to find a balance between monetization and avoiding P2W scenario, where the player, who paid more, gets an advantage. There’re also arguments promoting crafting system and free marketplace for the cards.
This is a very hot topic for discussion on Reddit. Hit us with your opinion in the comments
