I have no interest in capes since I play in first person perspective and mostly single player.
Also, I don't know if I had the wrong settings or something, but the Scrolls cape that everybody got to wear for a while was totaly uninteresting, I couldn't see what the pattern was supposed to be. And I saw someone wearing a cape on a server once and thought it hung like a sheet of plywood.
Tell that to <insert corporation here>. They are money hungry... possibly due to their legal obligation to create a return on their shareholders investment.
It's funny that you point out Microsoft for being money hungry though... especially considering they haven't added any pay to play features to Minecraft yet. Not to mention, if we were to point out Microsofts contributions to society in terms dollars and services donated then Microsofts 'money hungry' attitude comes into question... especially considering how evil other corporations are (cough comcast).
Not a Microsoft fanboy (THATLL make em' believe me!) but perspective here is key.
As for the topic... pay to play capes? My god. The OP must not have to pay his own credit card bill or something... being comfortable with paying for virtual capes when it should be free if anything is terrifying. The more people okay with this the more often it will happen.
...And if it does happen, I hereby swear to dedicate my life to making free virtual capes for everybody! I shall pirate them on the hills, I shall pirate them on the beaches...
This is a picture of it I found off of Google. Probably the most honest representation. There will be a bunch of kids, parents, and nerds there, talking about Minecraft, playing Minecraft, and taking selfies of themselves to post on Facebook. These are the people who will get capes. And we won't, because we are lowly peasants. The shame!
Yeah, too many people, I'd rather stay on my little island, with my fishing rod, my cow farm... you get the idea, now if minecon was gonna be in Milaca, I might, might,consider going, but I hate driving.
Rollback Post to RevisionRollBack
White coats to bind me, out of control
I live alone inside my mind
World of confusion, air filled with noise
Who says that my life's such a crime?
Trapped in this nightmare
I wish I'd wake
As my whole life begins to shake
four walls surround me
an empty gaze
I can't find my way out of this maze
'Cause I don't care
Fall in, fall out
Gone without a doubt, help me
I can't take the blame
They don't feel the shame
It's a madhouse
Or so they claim
It's a madhouse
Oh, am I insane?
My fears behind me, what can I do
My dreams haunt my sleep at night
Oh no, won't learn their lesson, white fills my eyes
And only then they see the light
A cool idea from the first look, but really, this would be the fist step to senseless microtransactions. Once Microsoft sees that the playerbase is willing to spend money on this kind of thing, it won't take long before paid DLC is available.
No. I would not pay to get a cape. The thing that separates Minecraft from other games is that it's a one-time payment, then the rest if free. If they made you buy capes, imagine what else they could charge you for- Updates, skins, "special" blocks, mods, texturepacks.... the list goes on. On top of that, the capes people got at Minecon will be worthless because anyone could get one.
Not trying to be mean, but I don't want DCL in minecraft. Btw, you get used to people hating your ideas and saying stuff like "NO SUPPORT"!!!!!!!. Learned that on the suggestions section... XD
Maybe I would pay, but not for just a cape itself.
There would have to be more involved with the pack, but then again, the lack of buying add-ons is what makes Minecraft so good. You don't have to buy add-ons to "win" the game!
