just wanna clear up a misunderstanding before things go out of hand:



misunderstanding:

"game credits will only be used when i play in the world of daria, and thus just hanging around and chatting with people will cost money"


- game credits will work just like, say WoW game credits work, you pay X money, get 30 days to play. However, we dont like this system, so we added another feature to this already working system. At the end of the 30 days we check how much you have played. If you havnt played much at all, you are now given X amount of ingame hours, say 30 (hours that only expire when you are IN the game). This means, if you game alot, sitting around chatting does not cost you anything, cause your credits are only gonna last you 30 days anyhow. However if you game really little, you can play the game occasionally for a year without paying for more credits.


Also. It is rather hard to give good answers to details, cause frankly, we dont know. (amount of free slots of server, amount of servers, cost for credits, time for credits...and so on...)


Also, just a side note. Akarra had its limit too, even though i dont think it was ever reached but at 128 players or so noone could join. Hopefully we will be able to supply the same amount of relative space (never being filled to the brim). But if the game turns out very popular, with the free server filled all the time, who knows, mayby we will boot up another free server?


I think that i speak for most of oxeye here, when i say that making games full time is our goal. I want to dedicate myself 100% to my passion, which is just that, to watch games evolve and become something. This is one great step towards it i think. Even if the silly alpha is far from the final product, i think you will see alot of our love imbued in it.


/cya in silly alpha on release day!

Just to be clear, this Pay to Play system won't be enforced until 1st official release correct? I mean, it seems silly to force people to pay during Alpha and Beta, which are testing phases, and during which time buggy releases and char resets are not uncommon. I'm sure ya'll got this planned out some so I should just wait and see. I'll check it out on the 19th, prolly be gone on the 18th, so everyone will get a 1 day jump on flower hunting. Looking forward to it.

Erevan,

People pay 15 euro per 3 months for the game Tibia (www.tibia.com), which is useless. The game use to have 40k players online on 70 servers. Just check the graphics, the people who play and the game features, and you will understand that it's worthless. I myself, cannot understand how people can pay for that game.

I'm one of thouse who said I would be able to pay to play Akarra, and I'm going to stick to what I've said.
I am going to pay for Daria if the price is not ridiculous. Paying for a MMORPG will be a must, if the game shall live long, and I'm sure that everyone would like Daria to live long, right?
I'm not saying that I'm happy to pay for it, but if the price is right, I'm sure it will be worth it.

Signed,
Nexego

Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision

Still remain
