OP  8/09/12 4:19:02 PM#1
I've just gone to renew my subscription as my free month ran out today. To my shock, I realised it was priced at £11.49 ($17.94 as of the current exchange rate) for ONE month. Is it just me or does anybody else think that is a tad overpriced? Don't get me wrong, I've enjoyed the game, and even shelled out to pay for a couple of clothing items from the item store, but the price just seems ridiculous.

I was already considering whether or not to keep playing TSW as my main MMO, due to the fact that GW2 along with other hyped MMOs are coming out in the near future. I just can't see how the current subscription price can be justified. To be totally honest, I feel as though I've been playing a single player game with a chat box in ever since I began. There is hardly ANY needed interaction with other players outside of dungeons, which makes the place just feel barren. Everywhere I go, there is the OCCASIONAL 1-2 players running around, which hardly makes it feel like an MMO at all.

Meh, I'm not complaining about the fact that I bought the game, as I've enjoyed it so far, albeit not as much as I'd hoped, although I just can't justify having to pay so much for a month's subscription when there are other options out there.

I think you are mistaken.  My free trial just ended and my CC was hit for $14.99 + a 12 cent internatoinal fee... not sure what you are talking about.

Exchange rates can suck. Being Canadian I know that from experiance. Today... for me... times are good.

I made a double sided USB cable and I plugged my Console into my PC... or did I plug my PC into my Console? Anyway I can now play Console games on my PC! and play PC games on my Console!

FRIGGING AWESOME!

I have always thought MMO fees are generously priced. If a game can keep you entertained for months whilst only costing 8 or 9 quid it is unarguably good going. Costs nearly a months subscription to see the new Batman and that keeps you entertained for only a couple of hours. Same applies to console games: costing £40 or so when you can generally burn through most or even all the content in a months time.

That's just my logic, £11 or so is not expensive for what you get. It's simply a shock to the system because the majority are used to the standard £9 a month subs.

I never said FC weren't a bunch of greedy so and sos though!

How do you know the current subscription numbers?

Since a lot of users bought digital editions and TSW now being available on Steam.... physical box sales don't mean anything anymore these days.

This was talked about quite heavily prior to release.

Basically Funcom have hiked the sub cost in the UK only. It was actually higher initially but a lot of the community complained enough for them to bring it down a smidge.

Ballsy move considering the industries inclination for F2P these days, time will tell if it works for them.

It''s one thing to have a opinion, but enforcing one is unconstitutional.

The share fell 50% today on the Oslo Stock exchange. The current estimates is that they will have around 100.000 subscribers pr month. This is all related to a press statement from Funcom.

The good news is that they all play on the same server so there will be no server merges.

UK people are charged directly in UK pounds and at a rate that's a lot more than the dollar/pound exchange rate. Not sure why, as they didn't do the same thing with AoC.

Anyway, coincidentally, I just cancelled my TSW subscription about ten minutes ago. I paid for the first month just to take me up to the release of GW2 but come the 25th I'll be gone and I doubt I'll ever go back unless it goes F2P.

Where are these magical population estimates coming from?

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

If you have a credit card change your country to usa pay in dollars then switch your country back again.

I also think we have seen our last few subscription games F2P will become the norm soon and B2P. When wow closes its doors so will monthly subs.

Not sure what server you're playing on, but there's tons of people when I log on, even in the lower zones.

As for not getting an "MMO" experience... that may be true in your case, but that shouldn't be the determining factor for whether or not you are willing to pay a sub fee. The sub fee isn't for servers or anything like that, but simply for new content. If they actually do provide frequent content updates, then it's worth the $15/month. In your case - obviously - it costs a bit more, but I guess it's up to you to decide if the content updates are worth it or not.

Oh wow.

Definitely glad I cancelled well before the subscription kicked in now. And for some reason I don't recall seeing that figure mentioned when I registered & bought the game on the website as it breaks the £7.99/£8.99 price that is virtually the defacto subscription price for a AAA MMO sold in the UK. If I had I'd have definitely taken note since it breaks the £10 (thou shalt not pass) barrier.

Anything over £10 would have to be something pretty damn special in the first place and offer way more than the typical AAA, more particularly at endgame (not meaning PvP of which I couldn't care less).

Did any reviews mention this price at launch/pre launch?
