Re: [Money] In game store?

said by navymaverick:

LotRO (Turbine) is both F2P and Sub.

Having both F2P and Sub "premium" is a viable option. However, having subscription and subscription "extra" is not. I guess that's what I mean by an MMO not being able to be both F2P and subscription.

Even if lesser charms were available for real money, they are so easy to get otherwise it wouldn't be remotely mandatory... therefore, no need to conflate an F2P ultimatum.

I didn't say that lesser charms were/weren't easy. I was saying that it's buying (even easily) obtainable gear. The impact it will have is debatable, but it's still a mechanic from a F2P model.

This will be the way most, if not all, future online games will be. Get use to it.

Followed shortly after by the following:

Free Lesser Charms this weekend only!!!

For this weekend only, Blizzard is giving away 50 lesser charms as a free trial offer.

Valid credit card number must be provided at the time of checkout. There will be a small $5 fee charged against the card to validate the legitimacy of the card. This $5 is in no way related to the purchase of lesser charms; We said those were free. Read it again if you need to. If after 15 days, you have not personally visited the CFO of Blizzard on a Thursday between 6:00am - 6:15am PST on a cloudless day to provide written notice of cancellation, you will be enrolled in our weekly program to receive 50 lesser charms each week at a rate of $69.95/month. Please allow 280 days of processing the cancellation request from the time of said visit.

F2P will eventually be the lifeblood of wow...in my opinion. Who knows when it will happen but I expect wow to eventually go the way of diablo and they are not going to pay to support a dead-ish game the way they did diablo. they want some revenue coming in. then you can always upgrade for 20 dollars a month to WOW2
