I get what it is now, but I'm pretty sure that isn't called a tote-bag, hence the confusion.
Yeah, at this point, I'm completely certain this is all coming from Zenimax's end. Like, even if the initial screw-ups actually were on Bethesda, they definitely would have learned from their mistakes and not pulled more ridiculous marketing stunts like this. The whole thing stinks of out-of-touch boardroom types wanting as much money as possible.
You would think that even the most horrifically dense of boardroom types would recognize when it's time to walk the f*ck away from a bad investment, though.
sunk cost fallacy is a hell of a thing, especially when the promises you made shareholders dont pan out.

Who knows what's going on in backrooms. For all we know, there's some sort of internal power struggle going on between Zenimax and Bethesda for control of the direction of the company, and if this snafu blows up, Zenimax is done and Bethesda take back the reins. Or the other way around. Anything is possible, with how this disaster has been going.
Just chiming in to say, going F 2 P from a subscription model is usually the last dying breath of any MMO. If you can't draw in enough subscriptions to support your game, you're not going to be able to generate enough money just by expanding the community of free players, and a whale hunting model requires the game to be set up around that from the start.
People are up in arms Following the last patch
Beside re-introducing weight to bobby pins, it also nerfs a ton of perks (Such as repair perks and explosive) because they were "overperforming" ie: Making the game less grindy. It's also invalidated a bunch of people's builds.
the patch also un-fixed item duplication bugs.

It looks like this patch is based on an older version of the game? Reintroduced a bunch of issues
At this point I have to wonder if they actively put the least competent employees they had on this project
and the patch has another hilarious bug apparently.
if you get infected with Rad Worms, they increase all status effects (negative or positive) by a flat 50%.
positive mutations, negative mutations, perk cards. WEAPON DAMAGE . if it has a value, rad worms makes it better.

Those radworms are radical, man!
Huh I think this is new.
"Bethesda SLAMMED By Law Firm With Legal Demands, Fallout 76 Unfair Bans, New Bugs, P 2 W Issue & More!"
So apparently the new bugs may be causing legal action.
I second the whole sunk cost fallacy thing. That can go on for years before folks are willing to pull out and admit they've majorly screwed up. Let's just hope the lessons lead to a better Fallout 5.
At this point, I don't think we should expect Fallout 5 for a long, looong while.
Well scandal aside, Fallout 5 won't happen till TES 6, and TES 6 doesn't have a release date yet
Of course it kind of depends if Bethseda doesn't go t**s up by then.
Do we even know where TES 6 is set yet? Last I checked, all we had was that beautiful teaser which sparked theorizing, but nothing more concrete.
Fallout 76. Truly the Shit that keeps on Shitting.
It’s probably a good thing that we’ll be waiting until after TES 6 though. By that point, 1-hopefully they’ll have had time to get their sh*t together, and 2-fans are more likely to have grown nostalgic for the series again, and will be more receptive.
Sorry, what's Fallout Miami again?
Or Fallout New Vegas 4?
Do you guys have anywhere else to set your hype?
... Fallout New Vegas 4? Were there a 2 and 3, then?
Fallout 4: New Vegas. Oops.
That's still wrong. Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout 4 are two separate games. New Vegas was unofficially dubbed "4" in line with Fallout 3, but this was jossed when that game was followed up by Fallout 4.
Fallout Miami seems to refer to a mod for Fallout 74, and given Bethesda's reaction to the modders that broke into the internal dev room, I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole if you value your account.
Fallout 4: New Vegas is a mod of Fallout 4 which basically ports NV to F4's engine.
