Every so often, I feel a degree of satisfaction in having dodged the MMO purchases that I’d really regret. I never bought a lifetime subscription to Champions Online, for example. My general policy of not donating to video game Kickstarters means that games like Star Citizen and Chronicles of Elyria don’t have my money. But I did buy a copy of Lineage II, and as much as I might like to say that it was a thing for work, it was years before I had this job and it took maybe a month before I just dropped the game as something I had no interest in playing.
Of course, I think we’ve all got at least some things we wish we hadn’t bought. At the smallest end, there are mounts or cosmetic doodads we would just as soon have left unpurchased; at the high end, there are the poor souls who actually did buy a lifetime subscription to CO. So what about you, dear readers? What’s the MMO-related purchase you regret the most?
