Eliminate RIPOFF !!

Eliminate is a GREAT game. But Cmon. Can we ALL finally be honest here and call a spade a spade? This game is such a ripoff. Yes, OKAY, we all know, if you want to play for free, you can. But how lame is that. 4 quick matches every 4 to 6 hours. And wow i can play unlimited but not earn credits to upgrade my weapons? SO lame. The whole fun in this game is upgrading your stuff. Its like playing an RPG but not earning experience points or being able to level up and get new armor and swords. Who would do that? The truth is if you want to actually play this game for an extended amount of time and have fun, you HAVE to pay. And again, this game is really cool. And herein lies the problem. If you want to keep playing this fun game its 12 "power cells" to recharge. The prices for these "power Cells" which is bullshit code for ripoff, are ridiculous. Its 120 power cells ($12) to get 1000 credits to upgrade your weapons. 1000 credits maybe lets you boost your damage and rate of fire once each if you have upgraded it once or twice already. Are you kidding? $12 to upgrade 2 to 3 parts of 1 weapon? If u dont upgrade you get matched up with others who are several levels above you and if they have shelled out the dough probably have much stronger weapons and armor. So you are at a big disadvantage. Ngmoco is robbing people blind and making a fortune on this game. this game will wind up costing WAY more than a regular $65 Xbox game. Lets here it folks, who agrees? or does everyone really think this game is fun playing without energy or waiting for your energy to recharge. If we dont speak up other developers are gonna do the same thing. They already have with these "Free-mium games" like Skies of Glory. More BS.

You play too much. Buy NOVA, play that hardcore and play Eliminate casually.

...or just get NOVA and forget Eliminate like everyone else did.

No. And there's only one leaderboard, which is the amount of kills you have
