Players are upset that Elder Scrolls Online is selling werewolf and vampire transformations

    
130

This may be a first for MMOs: A cash shop is selling infected bites. And the players aren’t too happy about it, although it’s not what you might first think.

Elder Scrolls Online is now offering a cash fast pass in its crown store to gaining a werewolf or vampire transformation for players’ characters. While the quests to gain these forms still exist in the game, some people feel that this store offering cheapens the system, deceives naive players, and offers an unnecessary shortcut.

“It almost seems like they are aiming at new players who have no idea you can obtain this in-game with very little effort,” one player noted. “They should at least point it out in the description of the CS item.”

ZeniMax defended the offering as a convenience item: “Just to confirm, you do not need to do the quest. Once you purchase either bite, you automatically are infected with either lycanthropy or vampirism. To reiterate what we’ve always said, crown store items are merely for convenience.”

Hi Folks, my name is Justin and I’m here to share my testimony on how I got help turned into an original vampire, One thing it’s certain and it works with your beliefs and what you desire to become a greater someone in future, when I met my sire, Mr. Alan Myers, he explained everything to me and at that moment was everything I have ever dreamed of and how it happened it was very fast when I followed all their terms and conditions, and today I’m a greater someone in my society and I’m proud member of Mr. Alan Myers family bloodline as an original vampire and I stand to enjoy all the benefits of a vampire… And if you wanna know what I’m talking about contact Mr. Alan Myers via email ( alanmyers_vampcommunity@reborn.com ) and in 3 working days a vampire blood will be sent to you and you will be initiated into their vampire community and you have dominion and power of wealth and fame

People are just upset because they will have a hard time selling a bite for 65k gold if they offer this….

Why are people complaining? If you wanna earn it, knock yourself out. So what if you can buy it with in game gold or crowns, how does this affect you in any way. If you get wrecked in Cyrodil by a werewolf player would, that somehow not have happened if they’d have earned it instead of buying it? No.
People need to stop being so obsessed with how other people choose to play a game that they paid for with their hard earned money, it doesn’t affect you in the slightest. Besides, not everyone has enough gaming time to do everything the hard way.

You mean using your skills and job trades to make money, making the game more reallistic? God forbid. Who’d want that?

The vampires suck ass! I’m a vampire so I’d know the mist form is fucking stupid as shit it makes you look like some fucking gas hauling ass cause he can’t attack. They need to add a new skill and more boosts!

Hi Everyone, am Lucy from USA,
This was how me and my Boyfriend became VAMPIRES. I got a guy from the internet called Mr. Barry who was a VAMPIRE so i told him that me and my boyfriend would love to become VAMPIRES so he asked me of my Name ,Country, Age ,State , address and in the next 3 days i got the blood sample through the DHL which me and my boyfriend took in the blood into our body and in the next 30 minutes we turned into a VAMPIRE so if you are interested in becoming a VAMPIRE. First: Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books, Sure. I understand. You are young; you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, but how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email: vampirewonden@gmail.com

I remember when the game first came out and I was DYINGUH (tut) to become a vapmire. I’d whore my little level 34 ass at the vamp altar and beg for one of those handsome creatures to suck me dry heh. Eventually some dudebro wanted to bite his girlfriend and accidentally clicked on me. He raged, but whatevs – I was vampy.
