In all, I'm not convinced yet that exploiters can not exploit, but I am sure that the Foundry is being designed from the ground up to be much harder to exploit than in past efforts. The policing will rely on Cryptic however. We are going to have to see what final decisions get made, but the Foundry WILL be released before the closed beta in limited circles to test all aspects, including this topic.

I dont care what people say it looks like or how they think people will exploit this or that.
If its truely free and not completely P2Win Ill play it.
If its made well Ill play it more.
If its really fun ill play it A LOT.
Remember, in this type of game you have many that want all the shinies, they want easy buttons, they want vanity. And just about anything that saves them time.
Pick any two from my short list and they should make money.
content is all i really worry about that is the game to me, not a fan of vanity BS im not a teeny bopper so the hello kitty armor kit looses its allure to me and I dont buy consumables in DDO and wouldnt plan doing it there either, so that doesnt affect me :-)
Yeah I know what they are marketing, I know they don't have a subscription model but bottom line is vanity stuff alone won't make money.
By introducing user generated content off the bat, it takes the pressure off the company. They won't have to sell you content, because they will be making it at a snails pace (see CO or STO). You will be doing it all for them! (at least that's what they hope) And that will be fun for a bit and you will have a core group of people who make the best of it, but I think in general the game will be a disappointment.

wither the glass be half empty or half full, WHO CARES ..burp.. i need another round HUZZAH !!!
this is just turning into pos attitudes vs neg attitudes, never thought id see the day the forums have come to this QQ
I really dont see a problem in paying a little for consumables, as well as supporting the better dreamweavers (Foundry authors).

But I have ZERO doubt they can pull a profit on vanity and consumables alone.
We'll just have to wait and see the decisions they make. Its silly to cross them off before they even announce what will be offered.
