[QUOTE=elitehakor;22401432]Finally, after 10 hours of downloading, it's finished [editline]06:53PM[/editline] Bah, it still crashes.[/QUOTE] What's the error?
fuck, and it was starting to look like a good game too.
[QUOTE=PsiSoldier;22402841]What's the error?[/QUOTE] dunno, I closed both windows.
[QUOTE=imperialrock;22404542]fuck, and it was starting to look like a good game too.[/QUOTE] And now that you have to pay, it looks bad? Sorry I don't think I'm understanding this. If anything P2P games are WAY better than free games. Customer support is always there, plus you get what you pay for. Just my 2 cents.
i respect your opinion, but i don't like the idea of paying 50/40 dollars for a game, and then paying for it again in a month, and again, and again. once i buy a game, i shouldnt have to Pay more money to play it.

Plus you get 50 hours free when you buy it, you can also buy time using ingame points, and earn time by doing missions. You're an idiot if you refuse to buy this game just because you have to pay some money. Hell even a 10 year old could make 6 bucks.

Boo hoo I'm poor and cant pay $10 a month.

[QUOTE=Marler;22410326]Or maybe people would prefer to spend it on something worthwhile such as their girlfriend[/QUOTE] if you have even a part time job and work normal hours with minimum pay, you're still making like $200 a month. Also, what the fuck can you buy that's worthwhile for your girlfriend that's 10 bucks?
So what are the payment options? I understand the $10-per-20-hours system, but to be honest I think that's a load of bullshit. Is there a resolute per-month option?

I think it is kind of rediculous to pay 50 bucks then 10 bucks a month, but I'm willing to pay that because I think the game is going to be good, plus if I have problems I know that the staff will help me out. Plus, you COULD play the game for free. You can create shirts and sell them on the market place for RTW points, 400 rtw points is like a month worth of game time. People will buy using RTW points because one of my buddies who has in teh beta said that ingame money for a gun is like 4000000 bucks, where as its 400 rtw points.
[QUOTE=SailorBacon;22417749]6$ for 20hr 10$ month.[/QUOTE] That's an excessive price for a game that costs $50 off the bat. [editline]03:19PM[/editline] I mean if it was one contiguous world then I'd understand, but since it's 2 districts with (from what I saw during the beta) average at best activity between the two, it's pretty expensive.

YES IT IS PAY TO PLAY!!! Its 6 dollers for 20 hours of INGAME ACTION DISTRICT PLAY SOCIAL DISTRICT IS FREE, YOU CAN SPEND AS MUCH FING time you want there without it ticking down your 20 hours of INGAME ACTION DISTRICT PLAY Its 10 dollers a month for UNLIMITED TIME in all DISTRICTS Action and Social are the only types of districts, so if you think your gonna spend more than 20 INGAME ACTION DISTRICT hours playing, then buy this. 50 hours comes with the game, 50 HOURS of INGAME TIME while in the ACTION DISTRICT NOT SOCIAL, SOCIAL DISTRICT (where you make shit, chill out, and design shit) IS FREE!! YES FREE! UNLIMITED!! A mission can last from 2-15mins depending on what it is, so in 50 hours of INGAME TIME you can play around ( 50 * 60 = 3,000 minutes of game play 3,000/8.5 = 352.94 (avrg of mission time) , thats just about 353 missions(more or less) that comes with the game! TIME NOT USED DURNING THE MONTH TRANSFERS OVER TO THE NEXT MONTH So as you can see, its really not much money for the game, its actually CONSIDERABLY cheaper than other MMOs. This is how it works, end of story, its definatly worth the buy.

only seems worth it for those that play a hour or two a day as I just can't justify a monthly fee for what is technically a room based shooter. Guess I'll hold off for now and hope for improvements that could make it worth it for me.
No it's not -- 6 dollars for 20 hours is so that if you're a casual gamer who doesn't spend lots of time gaming, so he can use the hours whenever he likes. the 10 dollars a month for unlimited hours is for people who game more often. and although 50 hours doesn't sound like a lot to you guys, this game IS targeted towards a more casual audience than MMO players, and there is not a lot made for hardcore MMOers. I think you all should stop complaining, it may be a little imbalanced but I'm sure all of you bitchers out there complaining that it should be F2P wouldn't be any different if it were F2P with an item mall.

I meant there's more to life then paying for an mmo. I don't have to shower her with gifts to make her happy, I'm just saying I'd rather put my money towards someone/something else then an mmo which I'm going to get nothing worthwhile out of

Out of every MMO I've ever played, I consider this one very worthwhile. What amazes me, is that this game hasn't let me down. Everything they promised was delivered. I have been dissapointed by so many over-hyped games, but this one lives up to my expectations.
