WWE 2K Battle Grounds - First Impressions & Micro Transactions
My very first impressions of WWE 2K Battle Grounds. Checking out the modes, playing a few matches, looking at Create a Wrestler, and getting surprised by the unlockables and microtransactions.

    I have beaten the game and have every trophy, and I can tell you that the microtransactions basically ruin the game progression. It takes way too long to get the battle bucks to unlock the rest of the roster, and some of the characters are full time performers today! On top of that, you have to pay more more for the costumes. The list goes on: You want more attire for your created character besides the bare minimum? Microstransactions. You want to design a ring that looks halfway creative? Microtransactions. You want to play online? You have to buy retry tokens and guess how you get those.....Microtransactions

    I really wanted this game because it was so different from the stale annual games, but they dropped ball on this with the microtransaction BS. And they had the gall to release this on the very same day as Super Mario 3D All-Stars. WWE needs to end their deal with 2K and go with THQ Nordic.

    Also, no need to spend money. You can unlock stuff pretty quickly just by playing campaign and battleground challenges with your created wrestler. Love your content. Keep up the excellent work, buddy.

    Why does this surprise anyone? I think everyone who seen this game from announcement knew what it was. You were all warned away from buying it before, and yet we see some people still went and preordered the game. Blind love for an IP will lead you to giving up your money, just to make sure that its trash. Meanwhile, they already have your money, so you have told them that this type of product still sells. Nothing is going to change as long as people keep making excuses for buying the games. Dont care if its a ALfirstr, who does this for a job, or some random person who knows nothing about games, the writing was on the wall from the start.

    I actually like the game... It's an arcade game, so my expectations were low. I love WWE All Stars for the PS3, and expected this to be similar. It wasn't, but I still like the game. Just don't expect too much.

    About what I expected from the game. Was hesitant to buy. You've confirmed what I assumed it would be; The WWE version of NBA Playgrounds, in all its grindy micro-transactiony glory. That being said, probably best to wait until it goes on sale. I imagine it will be a bit of fun, just not for full price.

    I have the same feeling about the game, it gives me anxiety seeing how much needs to be unlocked, I rallied it up to 407,000 points just for superstars, that’s not fun, I regret buying it now I’m stuck with it, I’m done with 2k forever

    Everybody bitchin about the micro transactions when all they have to do is play the fuckin game. Once you finish the campaign, start the battle challenges and complete daily challenges . You’ll have more than enough money to unlock the wrestlers. This is a arcade game. There’s no gm mode or universe mode to keep you playing. So the unlocks give the game replay value because there’s always something to work towards

  31. Ragan31687

    This game look like absolute trash. I love arcade style games but this art style is horrible to look at, the grind to unlock characters is infuriating, and I’m so glad I did not preorder this game.

    Know take forever with how I play but if can unlock through campaign thats good. Know not buying anything thats for sure. Thats my biggest gripe. Used to doing so much unlocking in likes of Smash Bros.

  33. schmolly3
    4 muaj më parë

    So each character is 600 gold coins. 500 coins is 3.99 (not enough to get one character...) and 1100 coins (again, not enough for two characters) is 7.99! Screw any interest I had in the game!!!!

    It's insanity but we have come to accept it as normal. It used to be you pay $60 for a game and you get the whole game. Now they have the gall to actually keep charging you $2 or so for every character you want. I'm all for making money but it's such a blatant ripoff.

    I'm going to be honest: this doesn't feel very genunie. You can't go "so there been complaints about CAW slots" and then suddenly go silent as soon as you see the first locked caw slot. It just gives off the air of "I actually know whats up, I'm just acting shock for ALfirst". And I'll say this just because as you said, you aren't used to non scripted stuff. But it just doesn't feel like a 'first look', more like a 'Let's react because it'll be easy to get views right now because of complaints."

      Idk dog this feels pretty genuine to me. He seems to be taking natural. He was probably generally shocked and he also said in an earlier comment that he had to stop him self from ranting. Maybe were just hearing this differently but I don't here anything that sounds non-genuine.

    You’ve likely heard about this by now, but Battlegrounds may have already landed itself in some legal hot water. In a loading screen before women’s Rumble matches, one of the comic panel graphics is obviously just a traced-over photo of Tessa Blanchard. Evidently Impact owns the rights to the original (it was taken by one of their in-house photographers), so it remains to be seen whether they’ll actually do anything about it since she’s not with the company anymore.
