I think there are many people here who don't understand how much it costs to build an MMO. Millions of dollars!
When people say a game company is being 'greedy' they are being naive. Game companies do not make the big bucks. Everyone in the industry could go into business solutions and make a lot more money if they wanted too. Instead they choose to work longer hours at worse pay and their investors risk huge sums all merely because of their passion for games.
This game is free to play, and people are still complaining. It boggles the mind. The people working long hours on it still have to pay rent, build a retirement and eat. Somebody has to pay or they go to food stamp line.
The glory of this game is that only people who have the excess cash and exuberance need to pay. Yes, they may pay a lot more than some people think is worthy, but remember, they are carrying the rest of the community. These people are glad to pay for because they think this is a worthwhile project. Games are 'Art', and the Arts have always been funded by wealthy Patrons.
So quit griping. Pay or don't pay, its up to you, but don't be rude by calling those that pay names or the creators of the game greedy please.
