Free?

SDS

Why do people refer to these program cards as being free? Just curious ya know, it's like they think the cards are sent directly to your inventory when you log on. I don't understand the logic. These cards are earned by playing the game correct?

SDS

I'm going to play the game anyway. That line of thinking means spending time with your family isn't free, or going to the park isn't free. You aren't using your "free" time to enjoy life because that time is not free. Personally to me, that is a silly perspective.

SDS

I think all that people mean is you don’t have to spend stubs to get the card

SDS

Well I managed to get all the cards without buying stubs. So that’s probably why.

SDS

Yes yes we all took freshman economics and understand the time value of money.

Free=you don't have to spend stubs off the market.

SDS

Did you use your credit card? If the answer was no than it is free. The whole time is money arguement really does not apply. Do you get paid to sleep? Paid to watch Netflix? Paid to go to the park with your kids?

I'm going to guess that less than 10% of the people on this forum understand "time value of money". But I do...

SDS

Technically, the "money value of time".

This comment made me laugh out loud lmao

SDS

But don't you buy a game to play it?

Exactly

The OP knows what people mean when they say content is free and everyone else on here knows what they mean too, but I guess some people are just determined to be negative about everything, even if it means starting a trivial argument about semantics.

What's next? A post about how this is the worst game ever because some random free agent common has the wrong hair color?

Stubs aren't free either though. Easy to get, yes. Free? No. You still have to earn them like you do any of these cards.

So then just having to buy the game makes it not free. Plus, yes, everything you do for entertainment costs you. Even going to the park. It costs time. Time is a limited resource that is spent even if you don’t equate it to money.

Negative? Far from it. I actually love this game. I'm not very good at yet but that's not stopping me from playing it.

I guess what I'm mainly saying here when people say cards are free they are referring to the offline content and not the online content. Like they feel you don't truly earn these cards if you don't go head to head with other players and win to get them. As if these offline cards are handouts, everyone gets a trophy kind of thought process.

SDS

Just because you enjoy what you are doing does not mean you are not SPENDING time doing it. Time is a valuable resource. At least to me.

SDS

So if you pay to see a movie, did you pay twice? Once with money and once with time?

Wait, you can get paid to watch Netflix?!?

SDS

I just sent a letter in to all my utility companies and leisure activity companies....Yes I use your electricity but I use it during my time here on Earth...therefore, you need to be paying me to use your product! Netflix pay me for my time watching your content that you gathered for me!!! DO IT!!! NOW!!!!
