So they announced the details of the Dutch Auction (Settlers Of Elyria) last night. This includes the prices for the unclaimed virtual land:
- Settlements: $65.00 to $135.00
- Counties: $350.00 to $650.00
- Duchies: $650.00 to $1,350.00
- Nirath: $3,500.00
Also note that those costs are only if you already have the correct package level. If not you get to keep buying the “upgrades” that come before:
- You cannot “leap frog” past your current package level without upgrading to the level above yours first. For example, if you as a Bloodline package holder want to purchase a county, the cost of upgrading to a mayor – which makes the purchase of the county possible for you -- will be included in the price that you pay. The exact cost will vary depending on which settlements and domains you pick as you make your purchase, so any discounts attached to those choices will still apply in the final price you see at checkout.
Thoughts? To me, these guys are just a few steps behind Star Citizen when it comes to selling jpegs and virtual land for a game not even in Alpha. But at least Star Citizen has allowed people into their game for years and has “free fly” events. More and more this is reminding me of Revival. https://massivelyop.com/2016/03/24/revivals-development-has-been-indefinitely-suspended/
That game shares the same lead designer and similarly pre-sold property before eventually going belly-up.
Anyone here actually going to put money into this sales event?

Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)

My ignore list finally has one occupant after 12 years. I am the strongest supporter of free speech on here, but free speech does not mean forced listening. Have fun my friend. Hope you find a new stalking target.
