Fine argument, but I have to disagree with you on that legendary weapons bit. In the first couple of weeks when the game was out, fans were crying out for more legendary items with unique looks, remember? Don't know about you but I gladly sacrificed the price of an ice cream to make my marauder and wizard into pure awesomeness. My point is, the IAPs were offered because there were demands for them. Strong demands, might I add.

I guess the same thing could be said for the schools of magic system. If I were to lose my character and precious equipment, I might just make a purchase out of an impulse. The IAPs make perfect sense to me. They are unnecessary to most players, but could come in handy in some circumstances. New enemies and weapons don't make the game "pay to win", they make it more fun.

It never influenced game balance, and was never in my face. You could play each game without even knowing it was there. Not anymore. Now they stuck that stupid icon right at the top with a stealth release, no getting away from it. Frankly, it's such a shabby move that it makes me question their commitment to fair games going forward. It's their right to do as they like, but if you don't think after laying down over $40 for this game and praising it to the high heavens that we've got a case to complain, you're out of your bloody mind.
I just switched the game from iPhone to iPad. So that "stupid icon" doesn't bother me that much.

Dropped to Free? Wow.

Edit --- I'm hoping this is to become Apples next free App of the Week

I'm kinda amazed that something with GW licence drops to free.
Also kinda sad with few of last updates, they totally ruined the game in attempt to milk more money from players.

I can't believe it's free now! Anyone remotely interested should pick it up.

But I agree they got greedy in the end with IAP I purchased a few but gave up after a while. Had all the best gear on all my guys and want more game.
