    Default Archeage the next Allods/Swtor F2p

    Lol, labor points regen is ridiculous. You can't use auction house if you're f2p...
    Not being able to own a house and stuff is understanable but seriously can't even use the auction house?
    I'm scared that Trion will kill a pretty good mmorpg if things stay this way. Rift is also pay to win in my eyes. You can buy the 2nd best armor sets in the shop, which jumpstarts you right into raiding for best stuff. For peopling thinking Trion did a good job with Rift f2p, check the forums, people know its semi p2w. I won't be surprised if Trion puts high end gear in Archage's cash shop also. One of the only high quality triple A titles with a good f2p system is Tera. I just hope Trion doesn't finally makes changes when its too late like Allods.

    Limiting free to play is a double edged sword.
    It prevents the real money trade exploitation that could happen with f2p'ers, and it generates revenue from accounts of those owned by gold farmers. At the same time the punishment is shared with those who aren't seeking to do such things.
    At the end of the day though, these are companies and for the most part they only exist to make a profit.

    Paying users could still do it especially gold farmers

    That's true, but in doing so they can profit off them. Bans only mean another account needs to be bought.

    There's no real point discussing things like this since we cannot change anything and the people in charge of these decisions are just suits that consider X profit margin a success. Regardless of whether or not they could double or triple it and give the players more enjoyment as well.

    The funny thing is that these games are ALWAYS making money on release and the publishers & developers ALWAYS assume that people agree with their payment methods and model. Then when the game starts to die for whatever reason they freak out and either fix it after a significant percentage of the players have given up on the game or make it worse and drive the game into the ground.


    Shit, does anyone even remember DOMO?

    Like Allods, it should have gone P2P from the start. Perhaps not with a 15 dollar monthly fee, but still.

    I absolutely agree on free players not being able to use Auction House. I don't know what by the gods they were thinking there. And I say that as a paying user.
