I know it sounds like leeching, but i'am a 17 year old kid in south london with no job, and no way of getting a job during the recession. so please, cut it out. The majority of us couldnt care less about your plan, as it'll either destroy MXOEmu from the inside or the outside.

Both good points. Two questions come to mind though.

Meta: How do you feel about the optional sub plan? You know free members can play, but if you pay monthly you get extra stuff. (like just of the top of my head, an expanded bank, increased memory load and a small% info bonus) This stuff could be discussed all day long.

Yama: Since you'd toss a donation once in a while, I have two ideas to submit for you approval.
1) A recommendation plan. If 3 people subscribe, and say that you recommended them, as long as they pay, you play for free. (this has tremendous potential to spread the word of MxO)
2) An "item store" You know how other free MMO's offer you items / buffs for a fee, How would you feel about that? Would you consider giving tossing the occasional buck or two our way in that event?


WHY does this have to be about money?

Money will do one thing to this project: COMPLICATE THE FUCK OUT OF IT!

I dig that you're trying to find ways to contribute, but I don't think this is the best way to go about it.

To be perfectly honest, if money ever was brought into this NOW is not the time. You need to have a product to sell. People, this early in development, will tune this the fuck out if we start talking about money.

Shit, even the BIG GUNS developing NEW MMO's aren't talking money! Look at Star Wars: TOR or APB, both brand new MMO's that STILL haven't announced any sort of payment plan. Yes, they're probably both about a year away from release (At least, I know TOR won't come out until 2011), but guess what? Neither will this... at least not in it's full (READ: as full as we can make it) effective form.

Dude, relax a bit. There hasn't even been a BETA yet, and you're talking money?

I am AGAINST a pay for play MxO, especially since it will not be exactly the same as it once was. I didn't even want to pay for it then, and there's no guarantee combat will even work. I can think of a whole mess of reasons why it's just too early to even consider this, even not counting my personal bias against it.
