      Xaviant's Josh Van Veld actually thinks his mistake was how they announced pay-per-match rather than the pay-per-match monetization itself. What reality does this guy live in?

        Yong, have you read ubisoft's new terms of service going into effect August 12? If not you need to look into it and PLEASE do a video over it. Basically, and I pray I am misinterpreting but if you stream/upload any video containing ubisoft property, they own it forever. That's nuts but IT GETS SO MUCH WORSE, if you feature your image in that video, ubisoft OWNS YOUR LIKENESS FOREVER and what's crazier if you feature a friend or fan they also own that persons likeness. If a fan didnt want their image used and Sue's ubisoft, then YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL PENALTIES INCURRED. Please look into this and do a video over it, we need to stop this now, we need to raise awareness and raise our pitchforks be ause if this gets through, it will become the norm, thanks man.

        Xaviant is the DSP of game developers

      4. Viktor Gabriel

        so they are doing the same thing as Magic the Gathering do and people are ok whit that for some reason

      5. Ivan Kleshchevnikov

        Maan, could ypu speak about the outraging pay to win system in AGE OF Z? and other games of the same studio? Those bastards really allow people willing to stay at top by paying for their packs destroy, insult and do whatever the fuck they want with no concern for the hate they generate and how they belittle other players, please expose them..

      Imagine killing someone in the game and then thinking "I just cost that person money"......that just doesn't sit right with me

      Doubling down on the thing that's pushing people away. Sounds like Hollywood.

    5. Downsider

      This is the complete opposite of LawBreakers where Cliffy was hyping it up to be a new billion-dollar franchise. This Van Veld dude is like "This is our hundred-dollar franchise"

    6. Mad PhantomPixels

      You will have regrets Josh, plenty of them.

    7. Ron

      Just checked current players now, theres only 4 lol

    8. William Mbongolwane

      So what he's basically saying is that they developed the game with the hope that it would suck...?

      You are so annoying stop showing in my recommended videos .............

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="287">4:47</a> It's not how many tokens are a fair amount, this system is unacceptable! What we'll see next? Instead of "Win an offline match to win a free token" we're gonna see "watch this ads to win a free token".... OH SHOOT! Hope that EA and Bethesda will never read this comment!

        Corporate people are so engulfed with how to get the most money out of players they forget the main reason why players play a game. They also think players are dumb and

      It's even stupider that all accounts reset

      wait putting the milking device right in the utters of the cow gets you bucked? what a shock

    16. Matthew Fifer

      JVV looks like Johnny Knoxville had a stroke and both sides of his face went into permanent sad face.

    17. VerdeMorte

      "Backed by a big Publisher?" You mean like Evolve was?

    18. Risui Z.

      At this point they'll be better off maintaining a private server, a single one. And monetizing as much as they can, because all this bad press won't go away, and it's not gonna fill more than a server with mindless whales.

    19. reptilian huntress

      Xaviant looks like an ork just saying

      1. reptilian huntress

        Another thing as well that I'm cosidering is that this isnt just a problem of server costs being to high. There is probebly other issues in the background that is taking thier money something like curruption within the company or even people not being paid decently. Have no clue but it is something to think about.

    20. erfan ashkan

      hear my warning. this is gonna be the future. now that this idea is out of the bag, i bet activision and EA are gonna use it. they are just gonna wait,and like josh said express it with a better PR and people are gradually gonna accept it.

    22. Ethan Edwards

      I thought Bubsy would of made people learn not to tempt fate in the memeverse. Guess I was wrong. And keep in mind, I PLAYED THE CULLING DURING THE FIRST REVIVAL. So I'm kinda pissed! I genuinely enjoyed the game. I thought it was a good battle royale, and it had a lot of potential and new ideas, namely, the focus on melee combat rather than guns. There were ranged weapons, but they were either a crossbow that only holds one bolt at a time and reloads slowly, or a revolver that can hold 6 bullets and reloads quickly, but can't be crafted, and if an enemy managed to land a melee hit on you while you had a ranged weapon out, they'd disarm you, forcing you to drop the weapon. They also didn't start shrinking the arena till 10 minutes remained, though since that meant that people would just hide, they had a man tracker, which gives the direction and distance to the closest enemy without the inhuman perk (makes you immune to tracking devices). Also, falling damage, while painful and could slow you down for a moment, was not fatal, and if it would kill you, you'd be left with 1 health.

    23. Shannon Curry

      This game is dead on arrival

    24. Jojoltaik

      tf is the culling

    25. three times

      This reminds me of this scene from Dragonball, where Goku etc spent their time in a hotel (was it a hotel?) and it was expensive af like having a sort of a count on how long you lie in the bed

    26. three times

      With all the current BR games out there, which are mostly free to play and in which you only have to spend money for skins, how the hell does this guy/company think they will have success with a stinky slimy strategy like this? This is just ridiculous

    27. eioshen boboi

      Doubling down on the thing that's pushing people away. Sounds like Hollywood.

      1. eioshen boboi

        Its such a shame that they've done this, the game used to be good.

    28. Gary Gregorio

      Corporate people are so engulfed with how to get the most money out of players they forget the main reason why players play a game. They also think players are dumb and stupid.

    29. Dragon Den Studios

      i love the fact all of these are about the "free to play players" and not even touching on the fact of the people who did the whole Early Access "Pay to Own" model when it had a price tag of $30-is or around that point. it's fucking hilarious, tho i'm so fucking sad I actually paid that price tag, I was so mad when I had paid money to own the game early on, and then it became free to play. this is even worse now

    30. Paul Miller

      I just noticed... their response had 600 likes and 30k dislikes.... and this video about the response has 30k likes and 600 dislikes... so ... I'm sure it's just a coincidence, but it made me chuckle.

    31. Tsouki

      Hurray, capitalism

    32. KiongSS

      Well you cant overload a server if you dont have any players

    33. Ozymandias

      I thought scheme and scam were different

    34. Rai Rai

      That game was shit, came back up as shit and will be shit. There's not even a space where anyone should "think about it".

    35. Sorry, this name is restricted.

      Still better than any other battle royale on the market. That's the real tragedy here.

    36. Ancient Of Days

      THE REAL CULPRITS ARE THE SHARE HOLDERS...THE CHAIRMAN OF THE SHARE HOLDERS BOARD MEMBERS, THESE IDIOTS DON'T EVEN PLAY THE GAME...THEY JUST FEED OFF THE IPO OFFERED THEM TO INVEST...!

    37. Zed Fury

      Has there ever been a successful game with a pay per match model? I can't imagine even the most popular of games pulling this off.

    38. afutla qian

      thousands per month.

    39. Tazwar Choudhury

      The audio at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="768">12:48</a> is a bit jarring from <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="758">12:38</a>

      1. afutla qian

        Look at all that garbage in the background

    40. Ultimate Outcast

      Really sick and tired of how game developers use really scummy tactics but this one just doesn’t give a fuck. As Yong said “therein lies the problem” The point of creating a video game is the intention of creating something so that players will keep playing it but apparently this game developer just is so much in denial that he just wants the game to crash and burn he doesn’t want to fix anything he doesn’t wanna make it better he doesn’t want a new engine he doesn’t want anything. At least Bethesda are honest about them being in denial. But this “dev” takes the whole pie.

      Congratulations instead of 2 week old rotten garbage it is now 10 day old rotten garbage.

    44. fatnonkers

      Its such a shame that they've done this, the game used to be good.

    45. DC4Life BilCaesar

      Is it me or does JVV look like the type of guy that you wouldn’t leave alone with your kids??

    46. TheSaxRunner05

      He has 600 likes and 30,000 dislikes, this video now has 30,000 likes and 600 dislikes 😂

      1. bodoti qwiu

        This is the most I have ever seen YongYea been just like WTF

    47. justin mccann

      They ended up giving 25 free games per day which only the grindiest players will even get through. Meanwhile you stack tokens for wins. I have paid nothing and as of this post I would have to lose over 80 matches in a row all in one day before im forced to pay for even a single token. It seems like a greedy cash grab but the reality is they will make no money because they even managed to screw up their cash grab.

      1. bodoti qwiu

        wait, wait, wait, they want to keep lobbies full... with one game per day per player....

    48. Joshua Tay

      I'm so tired of seeing companies do this to our games I hope one day that companies will learn to be consumer friendly like cd project red valuing quality and making the actual damn game

    49. Brickster 000

      Yong is just jealous that he can't make a great monetization strategy such as this one. I mean, this will be remembered throughout history.

    50. mastertracuer

      Who the hell is liking that initial video?!? I'd say his staff and friends but I doubt he has that many 😂😂

    51. Rain

      Do you want people to cheat in your game? Cuz this is how you get cheaters in your game.

    52. Cole Fox

      It's called capitalism, dummy

    53. lucid

      lol... "it's so cringe-worthy...seeing this guy - just delusionally jerking himself off while everyone stares at him in embarrassment and pity and disgust" damn

    54. fireboy1126

      those millions just signed up and probably quit within an hour of downloading the game. or just bots..large playerbase consisting of 99% dead accounts..lol

    55. 1DANIELTUBE

      Look at all that garbage in the background

    56. The Butcher

      Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. He thought his problem was going to be TOO MANY players? Big brain right there.

    57. Isaiah Bradford III

      I think this is the most pissed off and shocked I've ever heard YongYea.

    58. WELLbethere

      He thinks the problem was that he didn't have a good enough scheme to squeeze as much money as possible from people playing his game, even now with people being outraged, all he thinks is, "they are complaining because they are would-be money-spenders, but I don't have the means and knowhow right now to take all their money." This man is not a fucking human being. He sees people purely as objects of monetary opportunity.

    59. Daniel Brooker

      I can't wait for this game to launch! Just so I can watch it burn 🤣

    60. Ja

      I don't get what everybody is so mad about. What this payment model bears down to is a subscription fee with few extra options. It's not new and it's not this abhorrent thing you all make it out to be. I don't get all this anger. I understand that everyone is causious about new payment systems, cuz they don't want for it to become new microtransactions, but this reaction is abysmal and I'm very confused watching it all play out

    61. Tushnim Gangopadhyay

      Is Bethesda paying these guys so we have someone else to hate on this year?

    62. Dekanah Denfor

      wait, wait, wait, they want to keep lobbies full... with one game per day per player....

    63. D Stutesman

      This is the most I have ever seen YongYea been just like WTF

    64. NOphion Trollbringer

      Game subscriptions just arent the future anymore. League of Legends is FTP since launch and still makes a shitload of money through skins and other stuff. Fortnite is free as well, but you can pay for a more rewarding experience. This business model is stupid and if we ever let something this crooked happen, like we ignored lootboxes until it was too late, then we can bury this industry all together.

    65. bodoti qwiu

      be.

    66. Anon

      One of the twitter replies said Final Fantasy 14 does the same thing, because yes, an mmorpg is totally the same as a battle royale.

      1. Without Name

        @bodoti qwiu money, money, money Where is fun at game? 👀

      2. bodoti qwiu

        The games industry is steadily going to hell. The fact that having 10 or 20 dollar "micro" transactions in games is considered standard, and that shitty tactics as disgusting as

    67. Sixgun Sporty

      We're all laughing now but this will be in AAA games by next generation

    68. Antonio Sonntag

      Funny how there are around the same number of dislikes on this video as there are likes on the announcement of the pay-to-play system.

    69. karthikarn

      It should be "2 steps backwards..and 1 forward" so the move doesnt look as bad

    70. MJ1284

      Gordon Gekko says "Greed is good". Van Veld says "Well alrighty then!"

      1. Without Name

        Sounds like cheat from blizzard

    71. Sean Warren

      Lost me on culling one when I couldn't get in just after purchase. I'll never send money back down that hole, this just confirms it. This asshole can go back to his grandma's basement as far as I'm concerned.

    72. Daxank

      Basically this guy thinks "We should have just told people "HEY! You don't have to pay for it!""

    73. Please_Consume_Irresponsibly

      Unless I’m getting money for winning, why would I pay per match? This game is like a precursor to bracket style gambling in gaming, which wouldn’t be necessarily bad, but would definitely classify it as an AO (18+) game in the US. My moneys betting on they’re testing the waters for some form of gambling.

    74. Soldat Daniels

      Indie developers! Here's some *FREE* advice: as someone who's played and seen some good games made by small studios, and still play soe of them, *DO NOT* go anywhere near this guy's idea. Just do what you set out to do: share your art, story, characters, imagination with us. Need some inspiration? Some pointers? Pillars Of Eternity 1 n 2, Dragonage Origins, Tyranny, the good CODs, the good Battlefields, Greedfall and last but not least, Outer Worlds.

    75. Soldat Daniels

      Somewhere, in a tall structure built of glass, metal, an ego........and greed..........you could almost hear an assembly of creatures.....clothed in suits black as the coal, cackling, as they move to nullify......or hoodwink their trusted customers.

    76. Brian's Late Night Whatever

      Ok ok. Yong. You can’t say “If you look at the like to dislike ratio it’s really bad.” And have participated in said downvoting. It’s like saying “look at all the backlash this game is getting” and you’re the top comment.

      1. David Castillo

        Makes no sense.

      Ouch. That ending was a bit brutal.

        development team having such low standards and expectations for their work.

    79. KW Entertainment

      Being the genre that it is, this is easily worse than EA with Battlefront 2. So many times you just get dropped into a match and die within 5 seconds. Being worse than EA is the lowest of the low.

    80. Ussmak

      Perhaps making another shitty PUBG clone isn't a recipe for success after all?

      1. Without Name

        Wait isn't PUBG from arma, battle royale movie, hunger games? Then it is just mods game
