there was an exploit for the ANTstream creadits, you could claim the gems more than once, though you had to wait a minute or so before you could retry. I got like 5000 gems. They fixed it now as it seems. I just tried playing some games on ANTstream, I should have exploited the bug more often. they want 40 bucks for 5000 gems or so, insane. Playing a game cost 30 gems

As someone with over 1k hours in this game, I'd recommend you to stay away from it, unless you are a masochist and love grinding, endless bugs, greedy devs who don't give a duck about their playerbase and toxic players, all these piling up to form an overall toxic environment for a video game. To each their own, I had beautiful moments in this game, true, but those were mostly when I was relatively a new player, the last few 800 hours were mostly miserable but I was kinda attracted to buy their "battle passes" and fell into some sort of addiction, but I haven't touched that game for half a year now and I feel healthier mentally whilst playing games I really enjoy, like Sea of Thieves, now that's a good online game, it has its flaws, like any other online game, but it's miles better than DbD.

Well..... on the other hand you can go at it sanely and play it no more then 100 hours. Don't buy anything unnecessary, enjoy it until you get bored of it and put it down with pleasant memories of the game.

At least that's what I did. I liked the game but no need to go overboard.

Thing is, you can't even get the chance to try all the perks or killers in 100 hours unless you pay, whether it's unnecessary spending you decide. For OP, learn that you only get 10/55 characters unlocked, some of the ones locked you can't even grind as they are licensed and you need to pay real money for those (they are a few) and the other ones take you like 60-70 hours to grind per character with in-game currency. In 1,3k hours, I still don't have every character unlocked, whilst buying some of the DLCs (10 containing characters specifically, 1 DLC usually has 2 characters, but there are instances where there is only one and one instance where there are 3) and grinding in-game for others (41/55 to give you exact numbers).

I just give up when grinding and/or paying comes in play :D But yeah - if you want to try everything out then 100 hours is not enough.. That's true.
Although I just found one survivor I liked, got the prestige or what it's called when you reset the highest level and was content.

Tried some killers out just for fun and eventually gave up on trying and having everything.. But for me it was just having fun with friends along with playing DbD. Once the hype died down for us, I uninstalled.

Its not that bad. Just play with a light heart and have fun...that's the point isn't it?
I got all my dlcs free or on Steam trades. Never spend money on any game with a 'battle pass'
Don't worry about the try hard killers, the game is cross-play so you can add you friends from Steam to Epic

I'm confused about the Antstream thing -- the website and multiple other places say it has a "free play with ads" function, but when I load it up via the Epic lancher, it seems to demand a 30 "gem" payment for any playtime.

Is there no "free" mode any more?

Portal on Epic would be quite weird, gotta stick with something more realistic.

Maybe Half-Life 3.

edit: though the cake is at the same place where the forklift was for Shenmue 3. So the cake itself really seems to be the hint.

What the heck... is anyone else having issues with the client? At first, when trying to grab Shenmue III, I would just get logged off my account. Then, I would be taken to the checkout page but would see an error message. Now? if I click for Shenmue I'm redirected to a 404 error page. Using the website doesn't work either. O_o

Edit: jeez... maybe adding a shopping cart broke their store somehow? I'm only half-joking

That's a somewhat patronizing thing to say, did you do that on purpose? Anyway, yeah, I'm very well aware of that already. But as I've said, Epic has been giving away games for years and I don't recall issues like that happening in the past so it was surprising that things wouldn't go as smoothly as they used to. I mean... Shemnue 3 doesn't strike me as a big hitter that would bring way more people than usual and put such a heavy load on EGS' servers that they wouldn't be able to handle requests anymore. But maybe I'm wrong and Shemnue is that popular.

Edit: Yeah, it finally worked... but I had to add the game to the cart to be able to claim Shemnue. Weird.
