    Extremely not interested in another Steam-like platform. Also I was really looking forward to Amazing Eternals, I was very disappointed that it was canceled….now I have someone to blame.

    Steam is all about B2P games and hasn't had any good F2P releases in a long time. If this new platform focuses on F2P games I'll gladly use it.

    I'm not particularly against the idea of yet another games client/store. What I am against is it being DRM. For me it is too late with steam, got too many games there. But I prefer to buy my games DRM free so I actually fully own them.

    Stopped playing paladins after getting banned for "bullying" after reporting a whale who was blatantly wall hacking, after calling out customer service for attempting cover up for the player..

    That's the kind of developer hi-rez is.. spend enough money, and they will overlook terms of service violations, going as far as banning free accounts to protect them

    QotW: Steam needs competitors, especially given how bad their customer service and searching functions are. Tencent certainly has the ability to cause a huge dent in the market, given the amount of stuff that they own.

    I'm highly interested in WeGame. I like Tencent. I just don't understand why people hate Tencent. They are handling F2P market better than anyone, they don't pressure on studios, they are just investing and let them do their work. They just saved Ubisoft from Vivendi without pressuring Ubisoft. They deserve much more credit.

    Yes. Having 2 platforms that are going to be competing with each other means that they are going to work harder to please the customers and atract them to their side, which means better offers for us, the players.

    Yes, it's always good to have competitors, that usually means cheaper prices and more verity

    Another DRM platform would be interesting only if it was a different concurrent to steam, having the AAA games Steam doesn't have and such. (Cause Origin is meh and Uplay is garbage)

    The think with warframe, let it make everythink … diversity … everyone can choose to play or not to play those new "open" maps or do those "spaceship" missions or just stay doing endless survival …. its about geting more people into the game so more people can see what truly good development team is capable of and what should they look for in other games/companies …. its time to stop supporting those money hungry developers like EA

    To be honest I think this is great, more options are good and if Tencent do well it will force steam to improve even further their platform, a good dose of competition makes for improvments and/or demise. Steam has been king of the hill for years now (note that i love steam and use it mainly) but i feel they stagnated a bit, steam can go beyond, thats my opinion.

    I use Steam, Origin, Uplay, and Battlenet. I don't want even more providers, but I'll never have to buy a DVD ever again. I'll never get State of Decay 2 or Escape from Tarkov until they get on one of those services. But I'll still get special games without sevices like Star Citizen.

    Why would I want anything to do with a 'steam like service' that has nothing I even remotely want to play, and likely never will, and that non of my friends will be on.

    Tencent for all i know is just a share holder in most of the biggest companies, so probably any fishy move these companies did to make extra money was in one shape or form caused by Tencent. That being said, they know nothing about the gaming community and LoL has been nothing more than a skin generator ever since Tencent bought a fair share of Riot.

    While I'd rather not have to load multiple clients for all my games, They do say competition breeds excellence. Also maybe lower prices. :3

    I love steam I would not switch I love that steam saves all your progress no matter how old the game is compared to origins or Uplay which only save files from new games.

    Now every company with 1-2 games wants their own launcher? Even if i do understand that Tencent is HUGE it's still pretty lame.
