    Kishoshima Dragonash got a reaction from Esva in Review: H1Z1 (by Esva)   
    Cool.. thats what I needed to know.. Ive read and seen a lot of crap about the drops and all, so that makes sense.. but what bugged me is the fact you're paying real cash in microtransactions in what amounts to a paid beta test.  Thanks for the info Esva it helps put perspective on it.

    The ingame purchase system right now, though in controversy has a good foundation. People are screaming "Pay2Win Pay2Win" but it really isn't. At first the devs said airdrops will contain cosmetics only, but yes this changed to include some weapons which everyone raged about but when you think about it, it makes sense. This is early access and everything needs testing even the airdrop system. It has several types of drop such as The Hobo, The farmer etc and gives different loot dependent on type, with a 10 - 12% chance to give a weapon and even still that's only either a pistol or shotgun and when you take into consideration that you can die just as easily from an arrow tot he face as a bullet the whole "Pay2Win" argument looses traction very quickly, and when you throw in the fact it takes 2- 6 minutes for an airdrop to hit the ground, sends up an explosion, has flashing lights and then a massive green beacon along with a herd of zombies your chance of actually opening the damn thing is kinda small especially when other players will be after it too. 

     

    So the drop system it's self is actually okay, however when it cost $5 worth of station cash each then to say it's worth it would be me lying, at this stage it's not worth the money, so just try to grab the drops from other people that are spending out the money for a less than 5% chance of actually getting something ultra rare and decent from it 

     

    You do get a chance at cosmetic items that stay with you after death, and you do have a small chance at a weapon, and your garaunteed some loot such as ammo, seeds for farming, resources etc.

     

    But at the end of the day, Don't waste your money

    Scams and Phishing is a major part of the internet world. It's a major practice that takes advantage of unsuspecting individuals. I don't know anyone who hasn't encountered one and recent data claims up to 40% of us fall into one of their traps.

    Every 10th November,  United States Marines gather.. no matter where they are deployed, no matter where they are, no matter what they're doing, and spends a few moments thinking back to our birth. Tomorrow (Monday) is the 10th of November.. the 239th Birthday of the United States Marine Corps. While Im no longer amongst my Brothers in Arms, I still try to celebrate and remember where I came from.
     
    As is tradition (and standing orders), three things take place. First, there's the gathering of Marines (Usually in formation), second there's the reading of Maj Gen John A. Lejeune's Birthday Message, and finally there's the passing of cake from the Eldest Marine to the Youngest, signifying the passing of knowledge and the torch from one generation of Marines to the next.

    MARINE CORPS ORDERS
    No. 47 (Series 1921)
    HEADQUARTERS U.S. MARINE CORPS
    Washington, November 1, 1921
    759. The following will be read to the command on the 10th of November, 1921, and hereafter on the
    10 November of every year. Should the order not be received by the 10th of November, 1921, it
    will be read upon receipt.
    (1) On November 10, 1775, a Corps of Marines was created by a resolution of Continental
    Congress. Since that date many thousand men have borne the name "Marine". In memory of them it is
    fitting that we who are Marines should commemorate the birthday of our corps by calling to mind the
    glories of its long and illustrious history.
    (2) The record of our corps is one which will bear comparison with that of the most famous
    military organizations in the world's history. During 90 of the 146 years of its existence the
    Marine Corps has been in action against the Nation's foes. From the Battle of Trenton to the
    Argonne, Marines have won foremost honors in war, and in the long eras of tranquility at home,
    generation after generation of Marines have grown gray in war in both hemispheres and in every
    corner of the seven seas, that our country and its citizens might enjoy peace and security.
    (3) In every battle and skirmish since the birth of our corps, Marines have acquitted themselves
    with the greatest distinction, winning new honors on each occasion until the term "Marine" has come
    to signify all that is highest in military efficiency and soldierly virtue.
    (4) This high name of distinction and soldierly repute we who are Marines today have received
    from those who preceded us in the corps. With it we have also received from them the eternal spirit
    which has animated our corps from generation to generation and has been the distinguishing mark of
    the Marines in every age. So long as that spirit continues to flourish Marines will be found equal
    to every emergency in the future as they have been in the past, and the men of our Nation will
    regard us as worthy successors to the long line of illustrious men who have served as "Soldiers of
    the Sea" since the founding of the Corps.

Several bottles of milk were just outside of his reach. Written, in frosting, were the words, "Love us now?". The Dutch Korps landelijke politiendiensten (KLPD) and the local regiokorps (Regional Force) suspect foul play, especially since the words were in English. Authorities ask that if you have any information, to please step forward.

    Now that the history's over, a bit about me... Im 35, live North of Atlanta, work in IT, spent a decade in the Marine Corps as a Radio Operator, but cross trained into wireman and networking.  I'm pretty laid back and easy going, I enjoy trolling Kavia every chance I get for anything she says (:P) and get a kick out of hanging out with nerds, geeks, dweebs and gamers in general.  Im not a huge fan of PvP, but I'll dabble now and then, I mainly play TOR, but have accounts in Wildstar, ESO, STO, WoW, DCUO, and probably a few others I cant think of off hand.  If you wanna hang out, or chit chat, or goof around, you can find me in TS most of the time.
