    I would listen to your friend the game is not worth 5.99 a month let alone 15... just saying.

    I'd personally say yes until you stop having fun. I lifetime subbed after 3 months in closed beta. The game is the freshest thing i've played since eve online.

    Currently it is worth the box price, in order to say if its worth paying monthly I need to get past the first month so until that happens theres no real way to decide if it's worth it for me yet.

    Only you can decide.  If you have already bought it, ask yourself in 25 days whether you are getting enough enjoyment out of it to renew...noone else can answer that.

    If you haven't bought it...my opinion is that its worth the purchase price.  There is enough to see and do to get your 50 bucks worth.....unless you are super strapped for cash.

    having had 50+ hours of fun so far, the game was worth the $50 boxprice for sure.

     

    As long as the game is fun to me, it will be worth the $15 a month,  however i must say there is this other game soon releasing getting intoo my head more and more every day.

     

    Personally, i hope in the future, that MMO´s will either have a monthly sub or a boxprice and not both... Several games have passed my door in recent days for having both and not being convincing enough during free trials and beta tests.  I missed Rift and Tera releases. Tough i played Rift a few months after release, when i bought it on steam for $13 including a month of subscription.

    The game could be worth 1 dollar/month or 50 dollars/month. That is all up to yourself. I 'm not being rude, but do other people opinions really matter? I'm not a F2P pusher being an MMO is far cheaper than other activities in this world and 15/month is well worth the value if you enjoy something.

    I have been playing since release and I would say yes without a doubt. I can point to the skill system alone as reason to log on and explore. Having no classes, you can really experiment with the different builds and play the character how you want. I have had more fun just making different builds then I had combined in 6 months of Tera and TOR.

     

    On to questing.. I'm having a blast being challenged by some of these quest. They feel dynamic as you find them around towns and areas and not in giant quest hubs. The story line is engaging and encourages exploration. There are a lot of puzzle aspects to quest, along with the normal, kill 10 zombie etc. quest. 

     

    PvP has also been really fun for me. Fusang is always open and persistant and capturing facilities and holding them (that actually give your faction bonuses to xp etc) gives some meaning to the pvp. 

     

    Anyway, I say it's surely worth at least one month of your time. Let me know, as I think I have a buddy key I can send ya. This game feels a lot different then the crap I have played lately. Just my opinion though.

    +1.

     

    This basically.  So far it's a great game that I'm having a lot of fun in.  At the end of my first month, I'll decide whether I want to buy a 2nd month.  It's not like i'm required to sign a contract in blood or anything.

    what do you mean is it worth it.  is the game fun enough to be worth 15 bucks a month.  I would say yes.  Is there enough content to keep you busy for multi months.  I dont really know because I havent seen it all, but I would say yes at this moment.

     

    To me the game is worth the 15 a month.  I am playing it and enjoying it and to me its different enough from all other themepark mmos to get my money.  to me this game feels like sandox with quest and without the annoying parts.

  • charlespaynecharlespayne greater manchesterPosts: 365Member Common

    Id be happy paying 20 a month.

    I look at it the same way. I keep hearing folks bitch about $15 a month, but really... think of it... that breaks down to about $2 a day on average. I spend $4 for my lattes at Starbucks...lol. Not trying to be a dick, ,but if $15 a month is make or break for you... you should not be playing games in the first place as you need a second job. 

     

    Going to a movie here in the U.S will cost you about $10 a ticket... $15 for 3d (gotta go 3d). This doesn't include the $27.50 you're gonna spend at the snack bar. Basically, you skip one movie in the  theatre or about 3 rentals, skip a few coffees, skip a drink or two or a fast food meal, etc and you have paid your $15 bucks. Sorry for the rant, just sayin, if you stop and think about it, you probably easily blow more then $15 a month on bullshit. I know I do. 

  • blackhawkzzblackhawkzz BirminghamPosts: 53Member

    It's actually 50 cents a day $15/30 days but its even cheaper if you pay for more months in advance such as 3 months, 6months, 12months can't see those prices with a lifetime sub but i know its cheaper.

  • gaugemewgaugemew Madison, WIPosts: 158Member

    Is less interesting than some F2P games IMO.  So I would say no.  And did by unsubscribing lol.

    Just because I LOVE debunking the movie analogy here, in the UK you can get a Cineworld card that will let you in to see ANY MOVIE as many times as you like for £14.99 per month. That doesn't buy you food at the cinema but if you can see unlimited movies and you buy food every time you will end up as a super fat man.

    In my opinion (despite being an obvious thing to say it seems necessary to state that up-front in gaming forums since many people seem to think you're telling everyone else what to like/dislike and take negative comments of their favorite game as a personal insult of some kind...) 

    1. It really feels like a game from 2004

    2. Sluggish, unsatisfying gameplay typical of Funcom

    3. The dialogue and storyline are woeful despite trying to sound 'edgy'. Where it isn't tinfoilhat silly, it feels so strained to come across grown up, it feels like a teenager sporting a fluffy moustache and bragging about touching a girl's boob at the local disco.

    4. There are better games incoming worth your money, we might disagree on what they are but they have to be better than this garbage.

    holy shit! They don't have that here in the U.S - I would be all over it!

     

    I would not really call that debunking though. Just because there is a great deal, doesn't mean everyone has it. For those who don't, the prices still apply. Like I said though, if they had that deal round my way... I would live at the movies, lol

  • CoolrockskiCoolrockski PA, PAPosts: 51Member

    I agree with the people who say it depends on what you get out of it.  I would sub as long as you are immersed and enjoying yourself.  And honestly, people should support games they like.  The developers don't work for free.

    Yeah it is pretty great, I had read that they were trialing a version of it in the US in San Francisco but the price per month was $50 which sort of makes it totally over priced and I guess it wouldn't work at all at that price!

    I do agree with your original point, if you find the game fun then $15 per month is nothing in the grand scheme of things, the only people that will moan about the price of $15 a month are people that really can't afford it and people unsure about the game so they don't want to pay that much if they don't think they will actually last a month.

    It might be worth the box price. It might be worth a monthly sub. It might be worth a cash shop. But its not worth all 3 at once. No game is.

    Edit: I mean I dont think its worth buying and telling the company its ok to have all 3 at the same time.

  • BlackbrrdBlackbrrd KongsbergPosts: 811Member

    It's easily worth the sub for me since I won't have finished doing missions before august/september at my current rate. I have a full time job and a girlfriend and she likes to get some attention, like playing Diablo 3 together or something. ;)

    Anyway, I saw enough during closed beta that I decided to get the life time sub, since I am expecting a lot of content to be added over the next several years and it comes out cheaper for me doing it like that.

    According to you. I have bought the game.. will pay the sub and have spent about $20 in the shop. And from running around the game and seeing all the TOTALLY OPTIONAL store bought items on and with other folks... I'm not alone. 

  • LachyFTWLachyFTW Miami, FLPosts: 181Member Uncommon

    Well worth the box price but not a sub atm.

  • RaiZtRaiZt GöteborgPosts: 26Member

    Worth the 35$ box price atm. Game is hard to get into but when you realize that you cant make any wrong choices with your weapons it starts to geat really fun. Its inovative and allaround fun pve game  pvp needs alot of work tho. 

  • Preacher26Preacher26 saranac, NYPosts: 378Member

    I wasnt a fan at first but GW2 launch is still a ways off so I figured wth and bought it a few days ago.

     

    All I can say is im a very confused fanboi. I couldnt help but fall in love with this game... so sorry Tyria.

     

    Honestly even if I run out of content after a few months im very happy with Funcom this time around. VERY refreshing game and experimenting with multiple builds/decks is alot of fun.

    This is kind of where I am. If it were the box price + a cash shop, I'd probably buy it and play it. I don't really want to spend money on a sub. Any time I wasn't playing the game, I'd feel like I was wasting my money.

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.
