As someone who has played the game for nearly 10 months, and as someone who still has 18 months of pre paid time, I honestly believe that PFO needs to move to a Free to Play model.
The number one complaint about PFO, from both the reviewer and gamers looking from the outside (or who tried it briefly) have said that the game is not worthy of a subscription cost in its current state, and not likely for one even months or years down the road. Without a steady stream of revenue PFO will wither and die long before it reaches a "finished" or "near finished" state.
Evidence shows that struggling games get a second wind or a first look when they move to a F2P model. Some have actually found that their revenue actually increased using that model.
Goblin Works needs to start to develop MT store items, in a variety of packages and price ranges, that are cosmetic and or not very game changing.
Next, GW should then convert any pre paid time to a credit system (coins) for use in the MT store. This will adequately compensate Kick Starters for the pre paid time.
Player accounts with DTs will receive a bonus of MT coins during their pre paid time, and a continued stipend of coins thereafter.
Continued subscriptions just continues the stipend of coins.
XP gain is still done as it is, but DT accounts get double XP, to be spent on either of the two characters or just one if they wish.
For those that wonder why I post this here, instead of on the GW forums, it should be obvious... It would get deleted.
