    ^ This. Especially considering my "username" is a long defunct email address. That's right, kiddos. Back in the olden days of STEAM your email address was your username.

    Good on Valve for adding more and more games. Just beware of free to play schemes, they're never free for long. Just as a League of Legends player, eventually you crack. ;)

    Hippy!


    There is nothing wrong with spooning!
    Make love not war?
    Does this mean we can go around spooning people?
    To spoon or not to spoon.
    Is that a spoon or are you just happy to see me?
    Does spooning in a fighting game equal make up sex?

    most free to play games can be played to completion without paying. Most often you pay for premium content. Yes it usually ends up costing much more if you buy every item then if you buy a traditional game and if you don't like this model do not buy it, vote with your feet!

    Is that a Battle Royale reference?

    They are free if you want them to be. Usually everything can be obtained by effort and time. But you will have to invest an awful lot of both if you want to have the very best equipment without paying for it. This has the rather nasty effect of a two tier player base. Those who pay and those who don't. Those who don't pay always QQ about those who do, as they feel it undermines their efforts. I find it funny really. They play the game knowing that others can pay to get what they have instantly rather than weeks/months of effort. Yet still complain about it. Go play a p2p game then! Duh!

    They also seem to miss the point that without those players who pay they couldn't play for free.
