I don’t know about MK11, but this is exactly how they did things in Injustice 2. The vast majority of skins are only available if you pay cash for in-game currency that is nearly impossible to earn by playing.

So, when he says that isn’t how they operate, he is lying.

I've played a lot of Injustice 2, I was playing it leading up to MK11. I just never even looked at the store I guess? I was unlocking so much crap that I didn't want or never used that the thought of paying money for more of it never even passed my mind. I started refusing to open bronze boxes because they were full of crap. So idk, you're probably right. Injustice 2 was just an overload of crap.

But I am speaking strictly from experience with MK11, you can't buy anything that isn't fairly easily attainable just by playing. It costs 500 "spirit tokens" or whatever to buy a skin. They have currently 3 skins on sale. When you look at a skin, it tells you in all caps "Available in the Krypt" or "available in Towers of Time." You get 10 - 50 spirit tokens for beating a tower. You can even have the ai fight the towers for you. You can also just unlock all the stuff in the Krypt or by playing towers. It's just a time saver for people who want that.

My main bewilderment about this comes from 2 things: I've played the game a lot since launch, took a couple days off just to do that. Seeing the weird complaints and claims have simply caught my attention because I know they are false. I have no problem calling out BS when it exists. It's just that the current claims are not true.

Well, I don't mean to be so harsh, but I was kinda miffed that you couldn't earn the skins in Injustice 2 by playing.

It would be great if they learned a lesson from Injustice 2, but Injustice 2 also had all those pieces of armor you could earn for most characters so there is TONS of free content available.

Well I never bought Injustice 2, but doesn't it seem like they did learn their lesson from it?

* Full price console/PC game w/microtransactions = Awesomesauce!
* Free game on mobile w/microtransactions = HarHarDurHurTrash!

MK on PC sounds so much better than MK on mobile! But at least you all have standards!* lolololololol.

* That you're willing to 'double' lol.

Except it isn't true. They only ever have 2 or 3 on sale. You'd have to wait a millenia to buy each skin like that. The reactions and stories coming out about this game are wierd. Where is all this coming from?

Anyways, Ed Boon responded on Twitter:
Angry Joe is a bad source for anything game news related, the guy frequently talks out of his ass, tries to portray his opinion as fact and often puts his foot in his mouth. I have no idea how he has any subscribers to be honest.

I'm sorry, I couldn't hear you over the noise of gnashing of teeth from full price purchasers of a microtransaction-filled game.

Which microtransactions are you talking about?

The useless currency you can buy (in addition to earn in game) to unlock skins instead of earning them through gameplay? As far as I know there are none for sale you can't earn in game, and it's a rotating store making the currency even more useless...

Or the useless fatality tokens for those who can't press 3-4 directions and a button?

I mean it's just so stuffed full of microtransactions it gets hard to tell sometimes.

If it helps, I didn't like Dubya either.
