The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot has been in open beta, and the publisher has made significant changes to its microtransactions based on user feedback. Chiefly, gamers complained that the microtransactions were too pay-to-win.
The issue was highlighted by Total Biscuit's YouTubelast week, where he attacked the payment model. This resulted in major discussion in the game's official forums.
Since then, UbiSoft has decided to make microtransactions more cosmetic, stating that "many of you have said that (the monetisation system) has affected the game to the point of causing major harm." Now, instead of buying items and monsters for the dungeon, players will just have the option to buy cosmetic enhancements.
Players interested in checking out the free-to-play game can register for the beta on the official site.
