So things seem to have settled down for Fallout 76 in the past couple of months. The negativity of the game's botched launch is now firmly in the past and gamer outrage has mostly subsided. Things are finally getting better. But being Bethesda, they decided that the current situation is unacceptable and has chosen to stir the pot once again with a brand new controversy: https://www.pcgamer.com/fallout-76-fans-are-unhappy-that-bethesda-is-adding-pay-to-win-items/ Bethesda is introducing repair kits into the game, which restore one item to 100% and can only be bought with Atoms. This is a non-cosmetic item, which can provide a competitive edge to those players who spend money - in other words, it's pay-to-win. Many gamers are rightly pointing out that Pete Hines promised no pay-to-win mechanics in Fallout 76, and this is a direct violation of that promise. "Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies"... oh sorry, got a song stuck in my head. To be frank, I thought they were teasing pay-to-win with the limited-time Unstoppables costume perk before, and are now taking the next step. Players are fearing that this will be a slippery slope to further pay-to-win features and are urging Bethesda to reconsider.
