1) How does setting of business model work in practice.
Will it be Trion as a publisher for the western release who will decide on the business model?
Is it XL Games as a developer who decides on the business model?
Or is it based on a mutual agreement?
To what extent do the parties involved influence setting of the business model?
If it is Trion, what can we expect regarding business model?
In Asia, it is box + sub + cash shop (correct me if I am wrong).
What are Trion's cash shops like? What is the cash shop currently used in Asia like...does it imply P2W or does it give some kind of advantage to players who spend money there over others?
I personally prefer subscription based business model, so I hope they will go the same way as in Asia.
I would not mind if there was a cash shop unless it provides players with advantage over others.
2) POLL: What business model would YOU prefer for AA's western release (from gamer's perspective)
To make it easier, lets assume that the cash shop does not make the game P2W and is just cosmetic.
