Snippet -

Yes, that is among the latest Shadow of War news. Rather than make guarantees that previous issues will be addressed, Monolith is making sure an additional revenue stream is in place first. That means people will be able to buy gold to make themselves stronger, faster. That means you can buy XP boosts to level up Talion, your avatar, War Chests with Orc followers and Training Orders to boost their experience, and Loot Chests that offer XP Boosts and rare and epic weapons. While these can be bought with Mirian, the in-game currency, or Gold, Monolith made sure to mention that Gold will let people buy higher level XP Boosts, Loot Chests, and War Chests.

Already, this is problematic. In part, because there are other issues we needed assurances about instead. Shadow of Mordor got to be repetitive after a while. Especially since there were no “real” villains with personality, instead only new Orcs that had managed to make something of themselves due to surviving or getting in lucky shots. The plot wasn’t anything amazing, since it was basically sending you to go to a place, kill little guys, kill a big guy, then go to another place to do the exact same thing. Talion and Celebrimbor. Instead of being assured of more personality from Nemesis System Orcs and more purpose, we’re getting microtransactions.

And the Deep State whispered to Trump “You can’t withstand the storm,” to which Trump whispered back, “I am the storm.”
