Well, TBH I never thought I would make a post about this but the time has come.
It’s time to post my opinion about this thing and cease arguing with everyone on the disc server about this once and for all
Let’s get started
generic background explosion
For those who don’t know, in Phantom Forces you can unlock your gun before it’s determined rank by wasting a certain amount of money(from only a few hundred credits up to hundreds of thousands of credits)
This, basically, allows any rich kid to use his parents’ credit card, buy some robux, then buy some good juicy credits, buy any gun that’s for high ranks and blast people
But it has it dark side
So let’s set pros and cons(coz y not)
PROS(of having it):
-Makes up for a good money income
Well, it’s obvious. Even Call of Duty and Battlefield applied it more than once so that’s actually a way to make your game a little bit more worth. Allowing those people that are too lazy or simply that “just don’t have time” to get the good stuff is actually a good way of milking their money
Yes. Those “poor” people that “don’t have time to play” deserve to have good guns too
CONS(of having it):
I can tell for personal experience that most of those “poor” people that say “I don’t have time to play this kids game” or “I have a life” (Some people have said that to me when arguing) are lying. I mean, I’m in grade 11th(dunno how that traduces to the US school system)(basically last year of school) and I have all this state exams, Military service (coz where I live it is obligatory for people like me), Social work, University stuff, SCHOOLWORK TO THE POWER OF INFINITY, EXAMS TO THE POWER OF INFINITY, MID TIME WORK, etc,etc,etc…
Basically I have way less time than those people and here I am, A rank 110, good grades in school, a brilliant future ahead(idk why people say that to me, basically I sleep in class and I pass exams without studying), never bought a gun in my life(both in game and in real life coz here in my country guns are illegal for every civilian) and yet I play an hour daily when I don’t have too much work, and up to 15 hours on weekends.
It seems unfair that while I have to grind my way to the good guns (HoneyBadger, BFG50, AUG A3, Vector, DB,etc) some stupid kid gets those guns just by taking his mom’s credit card and buys some credits to get those same guns without any hardwork. Literally it isn’t fair.
-Money income(if this option gets removed):
You knew this was coming
Basically, Stylis is making money thanks to the non-skilled kids that take their moms’ cred cards.
Some people may be thinking:
If they remove this option, how are they supposed to make money?
Well, actually is pretty simple.
I know it sounds cruel and heartless, but I’m right(somehow). Stylis has been depending on PF for too long without releasing more titles, and that is the one great mistake that could make them sink.
PF is starting to slowly die out, and with the (super slowly) increasing popularity of Oof brigade(thanks syn, you have just started killing PF), the new Battle Royale games that are coming out, Apocalypse Rising 2(looks promising) and all the new wave of FPS that is coming to Roblox, PF will be turned into dust, just like CoR5 before him.(don’t ask me, ask Economists about it)
PF still has potential, the problem is how that potential is being used.
I will make a post about the role that community must assume in this situation and all this thing later
We all get tired of finding matches full of only low ranks with BFG BTs or M60s
This is the direct consequence of allowing these kind of people to unlock guns that they are not ready for yet
That was my stuff about the gun unlocking thing.
Feel free to comment (just be respectful)
