#11

Will we have to buy them or will they be available to everybody? If they were purchasable where would they be sold?


#12

In Gmod Tower everyone had emotes so I doubt it


#13

Everyone might have bought them, I mean you don’t have a reason to not buy them!


#14

You didn’t buy emotes. All emotes were free and useable to everybody,new or old


#15

Shouldn’t they be sold though? It would be better if they were purchasable rather than free for everyone in my opionion.


#16

I don’t see a reason for emotes to be something you have to buy if you’re not Valve and trying to build an economy around a dozen emotes per game on your well filled distribution platform.


#17

Won’t it make more sense if they were purchasable?


#18

Maybe everyone could start out with a wheel of basic emotes (like the ones from GMod Tower) and then be able to buy other ones for 500-1,000 Units each at the Upgrade shop.


#19

Not really. How does having to pay to express yourself make more sense than just being able to do it by default like every other game with emotes ever. It’s a standard feature of the game and it shouldn’t be locked behind a paywall (of sorts). Should we have to pay to play the gameworlds too? Or pay to access the theater like in the real world? No, of course not. They’re all standard features of the game that everyone has access too.


#20

Just like the accessories are purchased shouldn’t they also be purchased?


#21

I believe there will be more important money sinks than player emotes. I do not see the reason in needing to pay to unlock a few, especially when it limits how new players will experience the social interaction in the game. It doesn’t “just make sense”.
