I don't even know what that means

they were boost that you could buy with real money that gave you like double xp gain and things like that. It was criticized because they said the game would never be Pay 2 Win and the player base considered those like P2W. So after listening to the playerbase, they decided remove them from the market store and make them obtainable from different way without spending money.

Don’t forget they did that after reducing how much xp you earned to “extend the fun of leveling up and unlocking new abilities”

There's a playerbase?

You will

I started playing this game and got past the story. I have no idea what they’re talking about.

ID: hj3a289

They started selling XP boosters in the marketplace about a month ago. They originally said they would only sell cosmetics so the community went nuclear, some people found the crystal dynamics community manager (who hasn't said or been involved with avengers since the beginning of the year) and sent her harassing messages. People at CD said they would stop communicating with the community now and this is why they don't like to talk to anyone that they deem toxic. Shit continued to hit the fan and then just radio silence for the last two weeks. Now today they put this out and say they are removing the XP boosters at the end of the day, some people feel really good about this, some are indifferent.

So it’s not because of the community. The reason for removal is no one was buying that shit

That means no one was buying them.

ID: hj2ylzc

Or they figured they got the money from the whales who did buy them and sales were dwindling and unlikely to pick back up. by removing them now, they get to recover a bit of player goodwill from those who hated them

ID: hj45a3e

I seriously doubt a game this unpopular would have enough whales to justify your theory in the first place.

Honestly, this game is going to be a lesson on how even a well established franchise can be destroyed by lazy ideas and greed.

I thought Star Wars Battlefront 2 was supposed to teach us this...

ID: hj2e4qu

That game has been saved in the end.

ID: hj2eyyx

No, Battlefront 2 taught the industry about lying about micro transactions and pay to win. This game has taught the industry not to do live service if you have no idea what to do with the game after 5 hours. And also pay to win

In other words: they had enough time to view their analytics and determined the revenue gained didn't meet their expectations and figured they could roll them back and be seen as the "good guy". But people don't forget.

7 : Anonymous2021/11/02 22:29 ID: hj2kuen

Seriously, all they had to do was make this game half decent, and the name alone would have carried it. The amount of bad publicity this game has brought upon itself is just ridiculous.

ID: hj497vn

My hope is that Insomniac is building up their own Marvel Gaming Universe and has an Avenger style game once they’re established.

I mean the main story is good, not great but good. The heroes are well made, gameplay is fun. But after the main story there is nothing to do except grind. its just a train of boredom hitting you right after the story. I played 1-2 games to test black panther and stopped playing. The worst thing for me was that you never feel powerful, enemies are scaling with your level...

8 : Anonymous2021/11/02 22:08 ID: hj2hq1h

I am glad to hear they decided to listen to the community, but honestly, the campaign and the DLCs are still pretty much 85% of the fun you're going to have in the game.

Sure, playing with friends can be great, but the endgame is still made up of only a few missions, and the normal "threat sectors" just aren't really fun unless you enjoy the grind.

And then again, if you only play the campaign and the DLCs, you don't really need to care about XP and fragments that much.

ID: hj2v8fk

I wonder of GotG's day 1 sales affected this decision lol

9 : Anonymous2021/11/02 19:56 ID: hj1x0i1

Who tf still playing this shit

ID: hj226v4

Guardians of the galaxy straight up embarrassed this game and came from nowhere

ID: hj251zm

I was going to avoid it too, because of what happened with the avengers. Now I can't wait for it to arrive.

ID: hj2idcs

Totally different design goals but sure. Game from nowhere. Eidos montreal is a fantastic studio. Its was crazy how they announced it so late though for sure.

ID: hj1y6u2

They'll probably get a handful when Spiderman drops. That will be it though.

ID: hj22v2c

I picked this game up for $20 on PS5 instead of Xbox because of Spider-man. Found out they haven't even released his section yet.

ID: hj2ikmz


Respect the hyphen.

It has a good campaign but the Live Service part of the game that comes afterwards is not worth the time

10 : Anonymous2021/11/02 23:33 ID: hj2u61z

I hate that the Guardians of the Galaxy game is probably slightly suffering in sales because of this game, because people think they’re even remotely the same.

The GoTG game is night and day on how to make a fun team marvel game. Buy that one, not this.

11 : Anonymous2021/11/03 01:34 ID: hj3bpg3

Playing GoG right now and considering buying the Avengers for the single player campaign. Is it worth it for $20?

ID: hj3rahf

I enjoyed the hell out of the single player campaign but GotG is so much better that I'm not sure I would enjoy it after playing GotG. Is 20 bux ain't a lot to you I'd say hell yeah!

"now that no one has been playing this, for quite some time and we've made every possible dollar from this thing we've decided to discontinue it, which will really do absolutely nothing to our bottom line from this game at this point"

I don’t even know who you are

The people who care already stopped playing

15 : Anonymous2021/11/02 20:09 ID: hj1z20v

I picked this up for $20 the other day and honestly couldn’t make it more than an hour. The gameplay just felt stiff and was not enjoyable.

“They don’t offer power directly” lmao is this people serious?

17 : Anonymous2021/11/03 11:22 ID: hj4uwp9

What the fuck, this isn’t even ‘too little too late’, this is doing the absolute bare minimum fucking months later. Seriously fuck this game

18 : Anonymous2021/11/03 13:11 ID: hj56ihy

All 3 remaining players: “Neat.”

Buying this game is one of my biggest regrets, huge disappointment for such a massive IP.

20 : Anonymous2021/11/03 14:01 ID: hj5d5qb

Fuck this game. Biggest let down.

21 : Anonymous2021/11/03 14:37 ID: hj5ig2z

They should have just focused on campaign singleplayer not whatever the fuck was that multiplayer

22 : Anonymous2021/11/02 22:26 ID: hj2keze

Damage's done already

23 : Anonymous2021/11/02 22:23 ID: hj2k18j

They just removed it after earning some easy money. People shouldn’t be thanking them.

24 : Anonymous2021/11/03 10:25 ID: hj4q1b2

First you bury your game deep, and over a year later you decide that maybe you should change that because the game is dead. Most devs do listen to fans, but this is an obvious corporate choice. This shit doesn't work anymore unless it's FIFA, and FIFA is already having trouble with their model in some countries. Might want to think your strategy again.

What pisses me off is that these fucking rip-offs are available for me, but yet Europe can't play Poker on Red Dead Online because it's "Gambling". Just fuck off.

25 : Anonymous2021/11/03 10:52 ID: hj4s7yc

Well yeah. The only added them because a bunch of people started playing on Gamepass. Those people like me quickly dropped the trash game so now they can remove these money-grabs to keep the strange core fans happy.

im so glad i passed on this game

Whoever makes the calls on monetization and grind for this game should be banned from the industry.
