How many addicts do you suppose are shutting down 8 years account because 15 a month suddenly feels too expensive?
Hyperbolic forum yackyack doesn't have any real effect on price points.
Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.
Cinema (incl. Popcorn, Beer, Ice): 20 Euros
Going out Drinking & Partying: 50 Euros
Weekend in London/Paris/Rome: 300 Euros
and on the other side:
Ultima Online 2: better graphics, same gameplay, increased game depth
Honestly: I would pay 100 Euros a month for a game that addictive!

Wow, where the heck do you live? I took myself and my 3 kids to a 3d movie last week and I got out of there at around 50$ With drinks and popcorn for all. I felt ripped off at that, let alone 100. And I agree, if it had everything I wanted in the game 29.99 would be well worth it.

I agree, especially considering that when I am not playing a MMO I usually spend more then that on games a month anyhow.

The theatre we go (Cineplex Odeon near Montreal) cost 14.75$ per adult for a 3D movie. 11.25 for children. So with 2 kids it's 52$ before getting drinks and popcorn. Add around 10$ per person for drinks + popcorn (If i remember right last time a Combo 2 was 18.75 for 1 Large popcorn and 2 regular drinks) so yeah it can go easily to 100$. Actually, the only reason we don't go to theatre anymore.
Yes, no question about it, but it would need to be something special.
Think SWG as one single mega-server but without the bugs, broken classes, CU, macro grind, NGE and seriously improved open world pvp, far bigger planets, more planets, more iconic locations, random extremely rare events which would be straight from the coolest lore locker for the time period, an optional storyline mission for lore and fun and some serious pvp faction conflicts and raids.
Expresso gave me a Hearthstone beta key.....I'm so happy
Absolutely, as others have said I would pay $40-$50 a month if it was worth it.
Originally posted by Rusque I can see it now, an EA executive is reading a link to this thread thinking, "Yes, we'll make the perfect MMO and charge $30 a month - it'll be awesome." Sorry Mr. EA, no you won't. And neither will anyone else, MMO's are barely worth their $15 sub fee these days (many aren't). Unless you find the Quality Improvement Fairy, I don't see any MMO being worth $30.
EA can't even manage a sub standard MMO so I think we are safe. Besides, all the EA executives are far too busy too read anyone else's opinions as all they do is stand around all day patting themselves on the back for destroying games.
Originally posted by mikecackleImagine your most favorite MMORPG game ever in your head and say it exists and you play it full time every day.. And it has so much content you couldnt shake your snake at it all...Would you sub $29.99 a month to this type of game? What's the most you would pay for a monthly subscription?Or do you think no matter how good a game is, its only worth a minimal fee?
PM before you report at least or you could just block.
If my dream MMO existed, I wouldn't have any need for a second game. Since I am already paying 50€+ a month for games it would fit perfectly into my budget.

Ah, but unless you buy a game a month, it's not possible to maintain that average.
If you don't locust your game play, you don't consume them that quickly anyway.
I honestly dont know which i find more funny:
a. The people with no lives who post 4000 post a year on this forum (seriously get a life )
b. The replies on the threads that are down right moronic, uneducated or not even thought
Anyone ever stop to think what mmo publishers watch this site? all your doing is feeding
them with intell about how gullable and easy you all are to ripp off. It reminds me of those
meetings people hold to try and educate people on how not to get scammed by others.
The intentions are great and even noble, But in the end all you did was teach more people
how to scam.
Truth is people are STUPID and will throw money at any old stupid thing. People have been buying
Madden from EA for years, despite the game only getting worse and basically a clone from the
year before, This goes for CoD also. People paid 45$ a month to register as a premium in golfstars,
even though the company did nothing. People go out like lemmings and buy the New I-Phone every
year, despite the one they have working just fine.
When it boils down to 1 question, all i have is this;
"Seriously, Have you all lost all concept of ownership?"
Then again I suppose if all your money is invisable, its hard to understand concept of ownership.
But after all the names and posts i see on this forum, I know my nightmare has become true. The
world is indeed FULL of morons. Myself included because i stooped so low to give into my 2 cents
on stopping by like you did. But I wonder.... will this leave an impression on someone? unless
people learn to see the forest through the trees i doubt it.
Destiny has cheated meBy forcing me to decide uponThe woman that I idoliseOr the hands of an automaton
Without these hands I can't completeThe opera that was captivating herBut if I keep them, and she marries himThen he probably won't want me dating her
I never understand why people are so angsty about subscription fees... If I'm not playing one of my current mmos/games or working I'll probably be out at the pub, cinema or somewhere, spending £10-20 on that one event that lasts a few hours at most. £13/month for a quality game is a -Bargain-. What you consider a quality game is however of course subjective.
For £30 a month I would of course expect something twice as good as whats on the current market (which is definitely possible haha... I'm looking at you ArcheAge :P)
As a kid when I was paying subs I was very much against them because I didn't really have a good concept of monetary value. Now that i'm independant and working I have no problem investing money into something which is bringing me entertainment, especially at such a good price.

What games last longer then a few days anymore? People buy more then 1 game a month or spend a crap ton of money on a free to play game making it no longer free to play.
