I bought FFXi and thoroughly enjoyed it for 10+ years.Not once did i have to pay any additional fees and i could still be playing it on that original PC.That is getting your monies worth.
I do not support any cash shops,not even cosmetic or whatever,it is imo GREED.If your game is solid and people enjoy it,pays for itself and turns a large profit.
The analogy i use for cash shops is like stealing,a thief figures it is great as long as he can get away with it,but knows it is wrong.Devs know it is wrong but they also know there are a lot of naive people out there they can fish in to spend extra amounts of money.
What i don't understand is that cash shops were never an idea nor accepted and now seems devs are pushing it so hard that gamer's are starting to accept it,man o man how morals have changed.
IMO SOE also the one that pushed for sub fees started this push for cash shops because they saw their numbers fall and could not figure any marketing schemes to get them back.Their alternative idea was to get more money out the set number of subscribers and try to get anything out of non interested gamer's by laying claim to FREE.
BTW virtual currency is worthless,it has no value,so you have in essence tossed money out the window.
Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

Not that I know of. Thing is with me if I'm not going to sub... I'm not going to buy crap from a cash shop.
