I WAS excited about this game until Ubisoft announced it would feature microtransactions. Prior to that announcement I was planning this to be a day one purchase. Now it's a gamefly rental at best. Microtransactions at best are a nuiscence and at worst ruin the game. Never have I seen an example of microtransactions actually improving the game.
