OP  12/22/08 11:00:54 AM#1

NCsoft has announced that Tabula Rasa has now gone free to play, and they have released a series of new content in the game.

We've released all new content - Earth, PvP Wargames, Epic Caves of Donn and more, and we want to remind you that Tabula Rasa is free to play, right now!

If you're a former player looking to return and check out the new content, just log into your PlayNC master account at www.plaync.com and visit Account Management to reactivate your account. It's as easy as clicking a button!

If you're a new player who has never tried Tabula Rasa, you can get a Tabula Rasa Serial Code by visiting our Support site and submitting a request for a new code. Use that code at www.plaync.com to create a new account!
You'll need to activate your new account with a credit card number, but don't worry - that's just so we know who you are. We will not charge your card for Tabula Rasa gameplay.

I'm confused.  Why do this if they're just going to take the game down entirely soon?  It's not like NCsoft is going out of business, are they?

Probably just a thank you to those who purchased the game in the past, instead of letting the game die a slow death til they pull the plug, they make it free to let their loyal players have some fun and go out on a high note.  Plus NC Soft will get the chance to pimp CoH or L2 on to the players that return for the final month.

I was under the impression that they were going to make it free at least for current subscribers until it's taken down, but why make an announcement and advertise it as if it's going completely F2P when they are planning to shut down in a couple months?  I would be pretty irritated if I joined an MMO, only to have it close down and disappear after the first couple months (especially when they are actually PLANNING on doing it).

That is a huge move for NcSoft. It will be even bigger if they can maintain the game for more then a year's time. Hat's off to NcSoft for actually giving back to the players.

Maybe they could have it free to play and use a cash shop like other f2p games.  Might be an option for people who love the game and hate to see it go.

As this came a little while after the latest shutdown announcement, wonder if they are palnning to keep it up...

qft

or they could use ads- that saved Shadowbane.  they should just open item shops, stop doing regular updates, and have Richard drop by every few months to get shot at.  problem solved pretty quickly tbh

Ok, I haven't play TR since beta, but I'm interested in trying it again. One problem though, how do you get the serial code, it's pretty vague and doesn't exactly explain how to get one. Do you go to the ask a question section of the support page? If anyone can shed some light on this subject I would very much appreciate it.

The way they are acting, it does seem a little cruel in that, if anyone didn't know TR was closing, it seems like they are just making it F2P. I honestly doubt anyone doesn't know that, but just something I noticed and some others have noticed too.

 

Now, as for the account thing. Does it even really matter anymore? Why the hell should I have to get a serial key and enter credit card info, just to play a free game? There is no reason for it. Hell, I was considering playing the game again while it's F2P, but despite that "free" notion, I wont enter my credit card info just to do it. It just doesnt sit right with me, and I may be a bit paranoid in thinking that there could be some alterior motive to this, but hey, better to be paranoid and cautious then just doing it if you ask me.

Besides, how hard is it to just remove the two requirements from the game?

Yes talking with a couple friends at DG it is something they are looking at, they will not make an official announcement that the Game is going the Guild wars route,until they see the server numbers.... but apparently NCsoft is considering this for all of their titles. That would mean of course that there would be less free add-ons and more pay for expansions, but it has worked wonderfully for GW and may just put NCsoft on top.

Getting a code is easy. Just go to their support site (as you are told to).
I used the "Ask a question" section ( direct link http://help.plaync.com/cgi-bin/plaync.cfg/php/enduser/ask.php ), selected Tabula Rasa, Account department, asked nicely for a code and it arrived few hours later.

It's a pity that another promissing NC game was released in buggy unfinished state (first Auto Assault and later Tabula Rasa) and awaits it's termination.

Tabula Rasa improved a lot lately it seems from a few hours I got to play on new account today.

Nice move from NC with this "come and play" even if it's for 2 months. (It will be shut down on 28th of February 2009). Players that already subscribed won't be slowly getting more and more bored on empty dieing servers. AFAIK they even promissed some "farewell events" before they switch it off.
NC will have an opportunity to show that they are able to get a game to a state when it's not only playable but enjoyable. Too bad they haven't done that 1 year ago...

Only free through the beginning of February.  I already deleted it from my hard disk.  It was ok, but when you get down to it just a FPS with MMO qualities.  It had potential, but it was never realized.  They just could not find the magic formula.

Sad to see this game go down.  I played for a few months and had a blast, but I'm more into the pvp aspect a game and it just didn't deliver sadly.  I'll have to pop my head back in to say goodbye before it shuts down.

i was interested in seeing this . if i recall nscoft originally said that tabula rasa would be made free to play from the 10 january through to the end of february . it could be no more than an early version of that but could it be rather than close the game down totally they are looking again at a " free to pay " (mircopayment/paid expansion) model .
