Ouch. No, I wouldn't drop $80 if they were holding a key part of the game hostage for it.

Of course I was very mildly irked that Blizzard is selling a beta deck of cards for their new Hearthstone game and that's only $2.

Pre sales are one thing, selling a beta product is something else, such as Patterns. Companies need to finish the product on their own budgets, rather than these tricks before the fact.

If post-launch there's no way to gain the Imperial race, it'd be a huge problem, but I doubt this'll be the case.

If it's as simple as we have to pay 20 dollars for a new race and cosmetic content. That's kind of steep without adjoining quest content, landmass etc. that's typical of an expansion...but it's not unusual to pay for extra races in MMOs, it happens with expansions. To pay extra for an extra race that was ready pre-launch however is still shady.

All and all it's not close to a great way of offering the race, but does the job. I immediately preordered. I'm glad ESO is not a F2P MMO and doesn't have a cash shop, granted this CE perk is right out the book of a cash shop in the worst way.

And Im just sitting here, waiting for Wildstar.

I think I'll be saving my money for Everquest Next Landmark, which looks like it's just my kind of sandbox. They've made a lot of really smart choices so far, and I'm eager to see how it plays out.

This makes me so glad I am not on the hype train for this one.
