    Unfortunately tons of perpspective players don't have credit cards to start the initial sub. It's massive in South America, Asia etc. Not to generalize, but there's likely hundreds of people from these regions that have seen this game, but couldn't start the subscription to begin with. OSRS is an excellent example of this, especially with the recent Venezuelan influx of players. Venezuelans start as F2P, work into buying a bond, and then start farming in the P2P version of the game within about a week. It's perhaps not the best type of playerbase to have (since most are gold farmers) but it's still an example of how F2P can really help players into a game to begin with

    Clearly, but there are more demographics that will never touch RoA purely because they don't have an acceptable credit card, or even one to begin with

    If your character was in storage the first thing you should do when you log in is check your item duras in your bank. If they are messed up report it, they are sometimes able to fix the issue if things aren't changed. Few of my guys came back with all mobbed dropped/chest dura everything and crafters removed from their gear.

    I think the psychological concept of "why pay for a game when there are so many free games" is definitely a factor. It's a shitty thing that has happened to the games industry, but this is what it is I guess and Battlefront 2 isn't enough to stop it.

    Game needs to have a free to play option in this day of age. Free members should prob have a Title locked on be unable to enter teleporters, or own houses, or join clans.

    It sucks, but you cant sustain a business model like this without an acquisition or sales team that is specifically trained for bringing in consumers.

    Why pay $45 for 6 months of Gametime when you could pay $30, no sub required to download PUBG and get right into action while being 100% satisfied of your purchase?

    Why pay 30 bucks when you can sell your computer, never play any games ever again, and be a couple hundred bucks richer.

    Dumb argument.

    Pretty much. The problem is the the difference in operating costs and players don't see that (probably don't care). The way this server architecture is setup we are forced to run at max capacity even if we don't have the subs. We will never be able to match the return ratio of a more modern MMO let alone a much more simple (server design) arena shooter.

    You are confused, calm down reread everything and then let it sink in for a second before spouting off again.

    How much was pubg I remember you saying you wouldn’t play unless beargrim bought it for you. Did you end up buying it or was it gifted
