The Daily Grind: Have you ever bought an MMO lockbox?


It’s not exactly a controversial statement on this site to say that lockboxes are bad. We don’t like them. Our readers don’t like them. We’ve all been saying so for over a decade. The only people who do like them are the people who are actually profiting off of these particular monetization schemes, and pretty much no one here likes those people either, so there you go. And yet for all that we dislike them, the fact remains that they’re here, and as a result we have to ask: Have you ever bought one of them?

Whether you like something or not is not always an indication of whether or not you participate in something. Heck, there are several very good games (such as City of Heroes) that flirted with lockboxes and seeing how players would respond to them. We’re not judging anyone based on this, and no one else should either. No matter what, we’re pretty sure you don’t actually like MMO lockboxes. But have you ever bought one?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
