They are among the current tiers. But compared to what lifers would get before the transition I'm not sure that is right. But, buying a lifetime is a risk after all.

damn... i wish i bought a lifetime now.  i tend to use cash shop a lot, especialky on vanity items, clothes and similar, the lifetime deal now would be perfect for me, in the end i'd save money with the monthly points.

As a lifer, I think legal action is a bit much.  I just have an issue with my points expiring.  I play many games very casually and I frequently jump in and out of games for up to a year at a time while I wait on content.  Having my points expire is just plain greedy and not even Perfect World, is that greedy and that says a lot.

Thanks for the info, i'll go lifetime asap then, at this point is a money saver for me.

Ok so what i got from this is that People who are blasting TSW that are non players are saying "Lifers are stupid because they bought a LTF for the game" And 90% of lifers are says "doesnt really matter to us, nothing is really changing" while the 10% are screaming "WE GOT SCREWED RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE"

 

Sorry but i was a subscriber so im a middle ground here.

so lets see

 

you pay 200+ for lifetimes

it goes b2p for 30 bucks

lifer get free points. and a discounted shop stuff. and you can still sub if you want plus have to buy stuff from cash shop

the free points arent free unless the content is like 1 dollar.

sounds to me like they giving just enough points to maybe get a content update,the exp booster useable 1 time for an hour every 16 hours lmao thats just silly.

 

either way seen it coming.

 

its definately a shame.

so many good things ruined by the dollar

This is what happens when people pray at the subscription altar like it's the only way to do things, definately sucks for those that got conned into buying lifetime subs.

New Content for the Future

Periodically we will release packs of DLC (Downloadable Content). These updates, called Issues in The Secret World, contain new content, such as more Auxiliary Weapons, new missions and story arcs. These packs are fully optional and can be purchased normally or for the Bonus Points that are included in the optional Membership, as well as with the Grandmaster Lifetime service.

The first DLC will start selling in January 2013, and is the main storyline of issue #5. This will sell for $5, however this content is already fully unlocked for anyone who has a full game account registered before the end of December 2012.

Regular patches with free content and updates and enhancements to the core game will still continue.

It is between you and FC only, no point posting your unhappiness with compensation related to shift of business model.

How about we petition FC to get REAL rewards as lifetimers????

I'm not on a rant against the game, it's still the best thing I've played in years but the downgrade in value of my lifetime pack is

**NOT ACCEPTABLE**

What do you mean real rewards, Your still paying for Squat additionally. DLC is NOT the monthly updates people keep thinking they are READ THE QOUTE I PUT UP. Your getting MORE points now than you were before. So once every several months you can spend them on DLC, as i sai CAN not FORCED TO. You are losing nothing. your Gains - Loss will even out, in fact you will still end up paying less for the game than anyone else.

 

Actually if it sticks around long enough. THEY will be paying YOU to play the game.

So Funcom is laughing all the way to the bank with lifetimers' money. We haven't even seen a return on our investment (12+ months sub time) and TSW has already gone F2P. Instead, we are being given a sop for wanting to support Funcom and trusting their "we won't go F2P anytime, cash shop is cosmetics-only" promise - for a $15 month's sub, players now get $10 in Funcom fake monies that expire after 6 months and 20% discount on all per-character (not even account!) clothing/pets (non-DLC items) bought from the cash shop.  It would be cheaper to buy the $5-10 monthly DLC from the store than sub in this game. 

Of course we can't vote with our wallets, Funcom already has our money. Rather than listening to our complaints, Funcom would be more apt to ban us for being disruptive in chat / forums since they've already milked us cash-wise and we're now just a drain on server resources.

So how can lifetimers protest? We have to do it through word of mouth. It's our duty to warn players from this game. We must warn our friends, our family, warn people in the forums we frequent. Let our cautionary tale make it known that only fools part money with Funcom.

I tried tell tell people after I first beta tested it, game is not sub base worthy in my opinion.  I knew it wouldn't be long before going this route.

Should of been smart like the rest of us who avoided this title. From the beta testing that was made available to players, I could already tell there wasn't enough content or enough things in this game to keep players hooked for the long haul. Sure it had a great story plot and a new twist on things. The modern combat was pretty sweet but its mechanics seemed glitchy.

 

It definitely was not worth a lifetime sub, if the people who bought the lifetime were shortsighted to the point to not see past this then that's their fault and of course you get what you pay for. Knowing Funcom's history and how they tried to scam people with their prior AoC promo's helped sway me from buying this product.

 

Most of the MMO's these days go F2P after a year, that's the pattern, there's no point to pay for a sub, it's just a money grab; where most of these game can survive easily enough with a cosmetic cash-shop.

 

In addition to this cash-shop I also wish the items you bought were account bound to be used on all characters, all companies seem to make this mistake and I think its done intentional to get people to spend more money. Well unfortunate for the companies I have that much self control to not pay for something twice... If the rest of the population had the same self control we could sway the companies to change this small problem and in the end they could make the money they deserve. But their greediness makes it a big turn off for me.

 

I'm glad I waited for GW2 and bought it. I've invested 500 hours in it so far and still enjoy it as its a game I can stop and pick up at any time, good job A.net on a good business model! Oh and their cash-shop items are account bound ;) Also an A+ move!

Depending on the cost, Lifers will either get all new content free, or heavily discounted based on their $10 in currency they get a month.  Not a bad deal.

 

Other than that, Caveat Emptor

Funcom was established in 1993 and didn't release an MMO until 2001.
