Xaviant's Josh Van Veld actually thinks his mistake was how they announced pay-per-match rather than the pay-per-match monetization itself. What reality does this guy live in?

Yong, have you read ubisoft's new terms of service going into effect August 12? If not you need to look into it and PLEASE do a video over it. Basically, and I pray I am misinterpreting but if you stream/upload any video containing ubisoft property, they own it forever. That's nuts but IT GETS SO MUCH WORSE, if you feature your image in that video, ubisoft OWNS YOUR LIKENESS FOREVER and what's crazier if you feature a friend or fan they also own that persons likeness. If a fan didnt want their image used and Sue's ubisoft, then YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL PENALTIES INCURRED. Please look into this and do a video over it, we need to stop this now, we need to raise awareness and raise our pitchforks be ause if this gets through, it will become the norm, thanks man.

They ended up giving 25 free games per day which only the grindiest players will even get through. Meanwhile you stack tokens for wins. I have paid nothing and as of this post I would have to lose over 80 matches in a row all in one day before im forced to pay for even a single token. It seems like a greedy cash grab but the reality is they will make no money because they even managed to screw up their cash grab.

He thinks the problem was that he didn't have a good enough scheme to squeeze as much money as possible from people playing his game, even now with people being outraged, all he thinks is, "they are complaining because they are would-be money-spenders, but I don't have the means and knowhow right now to take all their money." This man is not a fucking human being. He sees people purely as objects of monetary opportunity.

I don't get what everybody is so mad about. What this payment model bears down to is a subscription fee with few extra options. It's not new and it's not this abhorrent thing you all make it out to be. I don't get all this anger. I understand that everyone is causious about new payment systems, cuz they don't want for it to become new microtransactions, but this reaction is abysmal and I'm very confused watching it all play out

Game subscriptions just arent the future anymore. League of Legends is FTP since launch and still makes a shitload of money through skins and other stuff. Fortnite is free as well, but you can pay for a more rewarding experience. This business model is stupid and if we ever let something this crooked happen, like we ignored lootboxes until it was too late, then we can bury this industry all together.

Basically this guy thinks "We should have just told people "HEY! You don't have to pay for it!""
Unless I’m getting money for winning, why would I pay per match? This game is like a precursor to bracket style gambling in gaming, which wouldn’t be necessarily bad, but would definitely classify it as an AO (18+) game in the US. My moneys betting on they’re testing the waters for some form of gambling.

Indie developers! Here's some *FREE* advice: as someone who's played and seen some good games made by small studios, and still play soe of them, *DO NOT* go anywhere near this guy's idea. Just do what you set out to do: share your art, story, characters, imagination with us. Need some inspiration? Some pointers? Pillars Of Eternity 1 n 2, Dragonage Origins, Tyranny, the good CODs, the good Battlefields, Greedfall and last but not least, Outer Worlds.

Being the genre that it is, this is easily worse than EA with Battlefront 2. So many times you just get dropped into a match and die within 5 seconds. Being worse than EA is the lowest of the low.

I really, really, really wish that Xaviant and by extension The Culling could finally die for good. The more the game fails the more developers will think that a melee focused BR can't work, but it totally can! Hope someday someone competent makes and maintains a melee royale, god knows Culling and Darwin Project will never amount to anything again.

TheeRepenter AkaTheeComforter
now that i understand their situation even thou they are dumb. they realize what you stupid fans are ur random u dont know what you want ur like women. what they are planning with that shitty game is to have very few people on the server so they dont have to spend much to keep it going long term and they are planning on gettting a little bit every month from people who just so happen to play it and get tricked into paying for more games its a simple but effective way to get at least some money flowing these guys are clearly just in the business to make money so its all about business models and graphes etc so they know what will make them some money but they dont know trends change they basically make all their money off of foolish little kids or random older idiots who dont know better
TheeRepenter AkaTheeComforter
to be honest they couldnt be more transparent they blew up quicker than they were ready for the number of players broke their pockets before they could fix it but your not a logical person so that doesnt make sense to you. you dont understand that even thou they had a big player base they were not getting enough to cover the huge costs if they had ridden it out like they said they couldve done something with it but they couldnt so they obviously made mistakes on top of the issue because they felt hopeless but you dont realize they are human like you why dont you make a game then see how good you can afford to just spend all you have go in debt on loans just to find out that the player base is random as we all know you fuckers are and they dont wanna play it regularly which most of you dont play ftp games daily you go on your consoles ur a joke the economy is fucked up because of stupid majorities pushing stupid short term trends after trend after trend that have no future just little blips and gimmics none of you would know a good game if it bit you
TheeRepenter AkaTheeComforter
if i dont wanna do it everyday then its not a game i will play at all and on top of that i sure as hell wont pay for a game i dont play everyday and even more so wouldnt buy in game bs from it and even more so wouldnt play one or ten matches or even more pay to play more lol i would just shut it off after the i was out of energy for the matches and come back days latter if i was to play it but i am not and would not i believe all wealthy people or well of people are retarded besides a very very very few they have no clue about what reality is they are too spoiled and have it waaay too easy none of those fools should even have a job
TheeRepenter AkaTheeComforter
i wish they would go back to the style of making a game that is good from the start so you can find the op character and know the game with these constant damned updates players cant get into a groove with a good character and get to really know the game deeply this is why most modern games are failing their updates fuck up the game and take up ever increasing space on the hard drive devs are trash nowadays they do it for money i remember when games were made by devs that actually wanted to make good games

That's a very narrow view on the situation. Effectively the game got overexposed. They just wanted to have 5k players and cover their server costs. What is wrong with someone having a different monetization scheme? Are you afraid that it might work and somehow the big publishers will follow the trend?

Brigand231 2 päivää sitten
I'm gonna have to agree with the dev here, the choice is take it or leave it and gamers should choose "leave it", they can F the right off just like games with lootboxes, selling back deliberately removed content, pay to win mechanics.... oh right, gamers would rather blame publishers for their awful purchasing decisions. WAKE UP, PEOPLE! The only way publishers will change is if nobody buys their garbage! Instead of crying for the publisher to change, we as gamers need to change. Want better games and better monetization? Earn them by punishing the bad publishers. Now apply the same to government and politicians and shut the F up.

They need to give me his job. I know exactly how to turn the game around. Exactly how to save it. The real question is, are Xavient employees actually willing to WORK? I feel like they think "the work is done" and now they are entitled to make money doing nothing else. What he said just reinforces the problem, they "offered cosmetic items for purchase"? PLEASE. No new content is ever made. You have to make content and sell it REGULARLY. Like I have to prep food at my restaurant REGULARLY. I didnt just work for a little while and then stop, sitting back and expecting to get paid for work I'm no longer doing... Bottom line is, to save this game you NEED a free to play model, making the game accessible, and you need a shop, with a diverse, rotating stock of items to entice players to make purchases they WANT to make. It's too late to make money off of the unlockable content, even when you wipe out everyone's levels and inventory. Leave that content unlockable. Incentivize compulsory purchases with regular new content via a premium currency like vbucks... Fortnite has a daily rotation of diverse shop items which regularly include new content... I cant even anymore... Xavient, just let me take over. I'm not joking. Hell I'm giving you the right ideas right here. Pair a free to play model which makes the game ACCESSIBLE to new players, incentivizing compulsory purchases that both make players happy and make Xavient money. The key is you have to change your mentality for success; stop expecting to make money without working, get off your lazy asses (tough love) and make some content. Regularly. And in fact The Culling has already had its strike 3 with the 2nd release of 1. This will be strike 4, if this guys delusions are allowed to drag the franchise down into what seems will be an inescapable undertow of... cluelessness and apathy.
