Why are you not taking my money!?

I’ve professed my love for Battle Brothers in the past. It’s an awesome, awesome game, so I was a bit sad when the devs announced they are done with the game.

Well it seems they changed their minds, because they just announced DLC coming shortly that adds a new boss-type creature (snake dragon) and some new armor. Yay! Then in the details they reveal this DLC will be free, which makes it less of a DLC and more of a patch, but terminology in gaming is so far gone at this point that who cares.

Myself and others want paid DLC for this game. I want to support the devs so they in turn give me more of the game I love. I can’t do that with free DLC. LET ME GIVE YOU MONEY!

Now to be fair, this update is kinda small, so charging for it might not have gone over well unless it was like $2-3, at which point I guess going free makes some sense in that you don’t want to come across as nickle and dime’ing your customers. But screw that, save this update and combine it with 3-4 other additions, announce it as paid DLC, and let me give you money. Or work a little more, add 5-6 things, announce that as an expansion, and let me give you $15 rather than $5 for DLC.

Why am I telling you how to charge me money for things…

    They are so well positioned right now to make money off dlc for that game, I don’t get it either.

    You could buy a second version and gift it to a friend?
    Personally I’d rather do that than encourage overpriced DLC.

    I bought this game on a whim after reading one of your blogs. What a gem. 500 hours later, im craving mods and content! Take my money
