I've been pondering this ever since Crimefest started. The majority of players I've seen aren't happy with the buff microtransactions and nerfed weapons alongside the heaps of DLC attempting to make an economy, which they say now renders it a pay to win game, and in my opinion they aren't wrong at all. There are the few I've seen who still praise and defend the game, saying that you don't need to buy anything if you don't want to, but really that's not true if you don't want to proceed without bashing your head against a wall. I believe that Overkill were giving the finger to those 30,000+ players who worked hard to band together at once on the Road to Crimefest and tried to attract a entirely new crowd with the 10 day F2P session, as was evidenced by them completely ignoring the criticism during their recent AMA on Reddit. Surprisingly enough, it's worked so far, as player numbers are now at a higher average than they have been since March this year, but whether they stay that way is another question that will only be answered with time. I think I just joined the bandwagon at the wrong time, and now I feel like I'm the butt of the joke. Overkill might try to appease the former players, but it won't heal the scars that have been left.
