Ive been active in the game on and off for the last year on unknown toons just to still play, ive made both clan and omni toons, i have avoided pvp due to not affecting things omni side with how some of the raid bots work. If i returned as a paid player i will be omni and happy to pvp for omni sorry clans and neuts but things need to change before or as this game hits steam.
I want to return to this game as a paid player but the monthly sub is just not value for money, I'm a long time charity worker and as so I'm unable to pay, the 3 - 6 month or the 1 year cost due to very limited funds. My only option is to pay monthly. where i can only afford £20 per month for gaming i tend to play EvE online as i can afford 2 accounts for my money where with AO i can only afford one. so i tend to go where i get more fun for my money. also I'm forced to pay in € too with also adds a bank charge for currency exchange from £ to €. a price reduction for this dated game needs to happen along with a load more content for all levels of the game including froob and sloob (there are still some with sloob accounts).
I've read some things on this forum recently are a very good idea.
open SL up for froobs and keep them level 200 no perks or research but let them use the items there, if they can get it on they can use it. after all twinking a froob is a lot harder then twinking a paid, as they don't have the research or perks to rely on.
reduce the cost of a full account to €9.00 per month, the guys outside of the EU will hate this but make it a world flat charge for everybody.
reinstate the sloob option for €4.50 again flat rate per month for everybody, this will open up the SL perks for froobs also put the gmi and mail system in this charge.
i know this is a bit of an expensive charge but a 1 time payment of €9.00 if a froob don't want a sloob change to there account for a lifetime charge to use the gmi and mail.
froob > sloob.
And over the years many more have been asked.
cost for me.
£14.73 1x AO (€17.19)
£19.98 2x accounts
