I'd be less grumpy if Capcom didn't do everything right last weekend. It's one-step forward, two steps back, and it's driving me crazy. Microtransactions suck, but walking back a good consumer-friendly decision this far along really leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
I hope other people feel this way, because it's a very newcomer-unfriendly move coming at a time where new people SHOULD be coming into the game. Capcom WANTS people to come into the game. Letting folks earn some costumes are least gets them to stick around. @Capcom_Unity
Now, you have to grind a character for a lot longer to earn anything. I'm someone who does buy passes, because I enjoy SFV (I know, it's heresy), but a lot of people aren't, and the one-time rewards weren't even worth that much, they just felt good to get.
I don't mind Capcom charging money for shots at fancy, limited costumes, but removing the easiest way to earn fight money for newcomers sucks. It was super easy to tell someone to do story mode and trials, which would teach some basics and net them a character for the trouble.
The Disney Fox acquisition fills me less with hope about the X-men and more with dread about how all future media will be part of one massive conglomerate that controls all IP. I would like to see Magneto in MvCI though, I guess.
