I have paid 50 bucks for games before that I found out wasn't for me anyway, it's no different than paying 50 bucks for playstation- or Xbox360 games, if notihng else, I'll get a months worth of entertainment.
As for all the extra stuff, I'm not that worried, I didn't pick any of it, usually the in-game items you get for paying extra isn't as good as you think, the xp boosts are usually time limited, the items are only good for the first week, after which you'll replace them with stuff you find in game.
Aion comes to mind, only thing useful at max lvl was the pre-order wings, which could fly a bit longer than the regular ones.
It had xp boosts, amulets, ear rings, and much more, but all of it was #¤$!
Character slots? no thanks... 3 chars who can do it all is fine for me.
Name reservations? no thanks, if I can't get my name I'll find another.
Lifetime sub? never... You gotta be pretty damn sure you'll play it for a loooong time, to jump on that boat.
Cosmetic cash shop.. debateable, RP'ers might find that annoying, but for me personally, better than P2W.
I'm looking forward to try this game, mostly because of the puzzle like nature of the game, but also the setting, very different from what we have seen so far.
Anyone else take the plunge? :P
