Is it really doing that tho? I mean, it is adding to existing DLC, no?

Wouldn't retroactively making something DLC be like getting an existing non-overdrive/starstorm naut (let's say Scoop) and making them part of one of these expansions?

I dunno, seems like there is a difference there to me.

Yep, kathy is wrong. they're retrospectively ADDING to dlc, not making things dlc.

Not to hammer it in too much but I can confirm Kathy is incorrect about it.

Personally, it's an odd move.
Startstorm was planned to be the price it is and the kickstarter stretch goals extended it further. Overdrive is the size of what SS was planned to be.

I can see why they'd add to Overdrive to make it on-par, but I can also see why it wouldn't be needed or wanted. It's a tad confusing to me.

If you go back and look, there were tonnes of complaints about the price vs content of Overdrive. Honestly, while I agree that Penny and Nibbs are basically bonuses, in the grand scheme Starstorm was just bigger. If you were an outsider without any knowledge of the kickstarter, you saw two expansions with the same price; one had five 'Nauts and the other had three. That just seems weird.

I think it's pretty cool that Ronimo is actually responding to those outcries.

This is a horrible Vault Thread. Look at the OP.
You should be ashamed of creating this abomination to the name. Hell, there isn't even a vault yet! Image

... Overdrive DLC. It would make the price a bit more reasonable content wise for people who are just getting into nauts and for people who just want Custom game options and Overdrive nauts but don't want to pay 17 euro for it because I think newcommers may be turned off by the fact they can't have the characters they want with custom game options.

Custom Games options have been available for everyone for a very long time now. They're not Starstorm DLC exclusive anymore.

Oh, okay, I didn't know that....for how long has that even been a thing? :derp:
I do think it was a good idea to do that though since it feels a bit cheap to lock options behind a paywall.
But it's still a problem that Starstorm has more content then Overdrive. I'm pretty sure only dedicated players will actually buy it since it's still less content then Starstorm for a higher price.

Overdrive and Starstorm cost the same amount. Besides, so many people have Overdrive. Yoolips are all over the low leagues since he's such a pubstomper.

What about the people who actually want Overdrive to have five characters? \\.

I'm referring to the post about making the custom games options DLC, not the new characters, one of whom is already stated to be Overdrive.
I'm fine with Overdrive getting more value (I've barely used it) but I'm not fine with making something already in the game become a part of it.
