A couple of days in and i've already paid more than i would on 2 months subscription to other MMOs. F2P is definetly the way forward. I bought 1600 GEMS.

Used 600 for a extra Bank Slot and changed 800 into 2.5 Gold.

In a pay to play mmorpg you would have ALL the content given to you for 2 months at that price.

You are not a representation of everyone.

AION's F2P cash shop is constantly praised because of all the freedom (i agree), and yet, NCSoft is facing problems with much lower reveneu from the game.

Also, as Nitth said, i like P2P because with tha money i'd have all the game. But that's another topic for discussion.

Making these claims is simply ridiculous. There's advanatges and disadvanatges to all types of business models. There's sucessfull and failed P2P, F2P, Freemium, etc.

You didn't need to spend it - you could have just used what is given to you. This is the key - it is all OPTIONAL. Your spending that much money is all on you.

 

All you had to do is buy the game and play it.

 

No sympathy here.

I've already spent at least 6 months worth of subs gettnig my account how I'd like it extra char slots, bag slots and bank slots. but now I have it how I like and realistically don't need to spend again ever. I'm sure I will though I like the fluff... also can you gift gems from outside the game as xmas is round the corner

I'm sure your going to get flamed to no end for your comments.  I have been tempted to buy a inventory unlock but unless I wanted to grind out crafting just don't see a need for gold right now.  Maybe for PVP?

I do have a bunch of chests without keys to open them.  I have seen exactly one key which came from a quest reward of a story quest.  I won't say it's STO crappy but the chest to key drop ratio is far below 1:1.

Remeber you also have to pay for each content expansion. I'm pretty sure they won't let much of that out free. I'm just waiting to trade my vials of week blood for gems :>

True, but the chests themselves have a very high chance of dropping a second key, so with one key you might unlock every chest in your inventory (I've done this a few times now).

Yea because all that FREE content in GW1 was a fluke.  Look at the history.  You're spouting the same gibberish throughout your post history and is showing your colors.  If you don't like the game, don't play.  Why bother wasting time reading forums for games you don't have an interest in....

Well, some of us, me included believe in supporting Anet. Not a big deal to some, if you don't, you don't! :)

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

He has all the content open for him. Also, anything that can be bought with gems can be bought with in game gold. Just saying since there seems to be some kind of false assumptions.

Really? Last time I checked the vast majority of P2P mmo's have a cash shop with content they DON'T give you for 'free'.

Didn't pay anything and don't really plan to pay much either. It's your choice if you buy gems to convert into gold...

Only thing I really see the use of is an extra bank tab, the basic one is very limited.

Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!

Not gonna spend extra money already on GW2. I just paid (AHUM, 3 months ago already) €55 on it. I might buy some gems ouf-of-game later on if I REALLY want  something. But so far there's nothing on my wish-list yet...

And as others said already, we also gotta buy the expansions, and if ANet follows the GW way, those will add extra char shots as well. Not to mention, an anniversary banking slot too some day..?

I have spend 50 euro in the shop. Because I wanted, not because I needed.

I still have plenty of gems left but here's what I think:

- the keys to open the chests are too expensive, in the end most chests only had some transformation tonics in it and maybe some kind of buff/boost for a short amount of time

- i do love the bag space unlocks with gems and the bank account storrage, i would have enough space without it (with crafted bags that can contain more items) but it's just handy (especially for cooking profession)

- i transfered a little bit of gems into gold (few silver coins) because i wanted to go crafting and needed to buy more mats from the NPC and i didn't felt like waiting untill i collected enough gold

- i think i might come to the point of spending gem's on mini pets since i like to collect everything (if the pets aren't unlockable in other ways... i don't know)

- i might spend gems on armor skins too (later), but i think i will mainly use them for town clothes
