    For less than 2 hours wage, I just got 6 months of game time.

    How cant people afford a sub?

    I simply don't understand the qualms about subscriptions that people have. Is it being unwilling to commit?

    45$ for 6 months, spend more on 1 date lol.

    You realize it you stopped eating out for one month, you could afford to feed yourself for several with the savings?

    Maybe these people you are dogging on work part time and go to school full time. So 6 month sub is what 65$ so you make 33 an hour that’s a lot more then someone serving coffee 4-5 hours a day. Either way that’s a step up from being an unemployed no lifer on darkfall 16 hours a day . Good for you

    It's 45 bucks for the 6 month package, hell of a deal imo.

    Not responding to the rest of the drivel.

    I believe it has less to do with the amount of money as it does the alternatives and options available. Blame the first MMO to go free to play, really. "Why would I pay for something I can play for free?" is probably more accurate, at least for those that don't play because of the subscription. There are a good number of people that would pay a sub, but don't want to invest ahead of time.

    What we'll do is setup the free trial system and use it as our testing ground for freemium and we'll likely see a lot more people entering since they'll feel like they're taking less of a risk trying it out rather than dropping money on something they don't know anything about.

    I think its a case of rather keeping 45 dollars and playing something else than losing 45 dollars and playing a dead game.

    You want to fit in so you also eat fast food with your friends? Invest that fast food money from 1 single day into crypto and you'll be a billionaire by september... If I knew now what I knew at 17...

    @Grimtide you should see the people dropping money lately, you'll come back and see some names and think game is popping only to realize people name change and race change every week...

    it's an interesting concept how people look at different situations ... I won't play a game unless I can pay for it as I feel that it pre-qualifies the players of that game to take have a stronger commitment based on the paying for it. I also feel that free to play especially a full loot free to play game will be plagued with hackers.

    Interesting take. I'm curious what kind of limitations will be on non sub accounts.

    I'm sure there is a middle ground to be found. Also, alias check exists to confirm new account or not (although that doesn't mean they're a new player, maybe just leveled up a new alt)

    Home Sunday night, wanted to sub early so my character is definitely out of storage and ready to play by then.

    Playing Darkfall is self punishment and very masochistic (general definition). Paying for Darkfall just adds to the pain, guilt, and shame.
