That's right folks. Flagship decided to add a bonus for people who decide to pay $9.95/month (USD) for an elite subscription account. These elite accounts will have a plethora of awesome bonus features such as the ones in this list. - 24/7 support - No queues (No waiting in lines, like a true Elite Member) - 12 chars per account instead of 3 - 40 items in shared stash instead of 20 - Visual character upgrades (possibly special items?) - Shuttle transports to special areas - Can create and maintain guilds - More grouping functions Some people may bash paid subscriptions, but this might actually be worth it. I know I will be paying for the bonus features. They seem worth it in every which way.

    Fuck micropayments, I expect to be able to use all of the features of the game I paid for, and not have it cost extra. The game is instanced like Diablo 2, it shouldn't even have a fucking OMFGELITE sub just so people with mommy's CC number memorized can act like they're above everyone else who doesn't pay extra. I also hate it when they give players who paid an advantage over everyone else gameplay-wise. That shit should remain in Korea's AIDS-filled 'free' MMO's that get released every five minutes.

    It's a shame that they decided to do this, but thanks to Xbox Live and their Downloadable Content, micropayments are becoming more popular. Studios are going to start holding back more and more content that should have been in the game in the first place, and then release a 'premium' patch that adds those held back features back in. Pretty soon you'll be paying extra just to own the game, and have it become unplayable when you don't.

    tl;dr: DO NOT WANT

    You're not "supporting the developers" you're encouraging the studio to adopt a pay-for-play model. No game is worth a monthly fee, and the more good developers that get greedy and start using this model the worse things are going to get. How long before you can't play the full version of any game without paying a monthly fee?

    Flagship said they will stay away from a mandatory monthly fee as long as they can. They are a new game studio with the exception of the Ex-Blizzard North members.


    The whole monthly play idea probably came from the Ex-Blizzards...


    NO. oh for gods sakes ! How many games are gonna make us dole out £360 quid a year like F.F and WoW to play online when usually itd be £36 for the game and that's it.

    Bull crap.

    Have you noticed to buy WoW you need only pay half the price it costs to play it online.

    for 30 days.

    Imagine if photoshop made you pay every so often, or winRAR?

    I hope this doesn't get like that.

    There's no way I'm buying this game, even if I get a new Mac and install Windows. I don't care how low the fee is, this game is instanced, it shouldn't even have a monthly fee.

    They aren't "bonus" features and this subscription isn't "elite." It's extortion.


    I will buy it, and no-one is forcing you to pay monthly. If you want to take up more of their server resources then pay extra..... this just gives people chance to support the developers more and get extra features. Most people won't pay this subscription, but I probably will. Also $10 is cheaper then any other subscription for games.

    Yay and Nay.

    First, as expected, you get lots of features.

    Second, as expected, they get lots of features.

    This sucks. I hate pay to play, and while it appears that the 'basic' form is free after you buy it, you are still missing out if you don't pay. (note the "Shuttle transports to special areas" and "can create/manage guilds")

    10 bucks is better than 15 or 40 bucks.


    Aye indeed... What game has a 40 buck subscription? O_o


    World Of Warcraft

    $40 per 2 or 3 Months
