Well your best bet is to wait for another free weekend to come along.

They did however just do one, so you may have to wait a little while.

Best to keep your eyes peeled. :)

The price will come down when there is an expansion so that the initial box purchase no longer gets you the full game.

As others have pointed out, this is buy to play, so they're relying heavily on the initial purchase for revenue.  That means they have to actually get a good bit of revenue from the initial purchase, rather than letting you get started cheaply and trying to extract most of the revenue from you later.

Your original post was set during the game's Sale on their website, which started the Friday prior.  This was the same time that there was a massive Trial Weekend event, with keys from many sites (including this one, no less).  So, it's your lose that you missed out and didn't read up and participate to see if you wanted to drop the money on this game or not.

 

   Many of the games you're referring towards are Free2Play titles.  This game is not like those; it's Buy2Play.   That is precisely why they don't have "free until level X" or other trial methods too often.   The game's quality is enough to keep customers, as is it's constant updates and so forth. 

 

Now, with tons of YouTube videos about, official videos off the website, reviews from dozens of media outlets, and many awards (including Time Magazine's overall Game of the Year) isn't enough to provide you with reason's to buy the game -even when on sale- then it's pretty clear you don't want to get this game should just pass on by, sticking with your Tera.

What are the chances the game will fall in price to somewhere around 20 eurobucks some time soon? I only see keys for ~35€ atm which is a bit steep imo.

If you want to get it cheap, you may try to get it from someone else who has stopped playing. This is however potentialy dangerous and strictly saying illegal. My friend bought such account for half a price though...

If not already on Steam you can bet it will drop in price as soon as it does appear on Steam.Most good developers have a plan and it would most likely revolve around months,so perhaps 3-6 months after release?You would probably also get some bonus item as well for buying from Steam.

ANet placed GW1 and expansions on steam years after it went live and frankly I don't see GW2 on steam anywhere soon.. why would they split profit with steam anyways when they're doing fine with sales?

I don't think GW2 will be on steam due to the cash shop, steam cash and steam taking a cut of the cash shop sales.

Seriously, and I'm not meaning that "bad", but to put things in perspective, when at 22 years old you can't afford the occasional $35 video game, you need to find a (better) job. Specially when there's no monthly fee to pay afterwards.

Going to the movies with the family + restaurant afterwards costs more and doesn't provide that many hours of entertainment.

I'm always surprised when people complain they have to pay a little money for something. The guys making games also have families to feed, they aren't a charity and they aren't basement dwellers whose mom feed, wash clothes and pays bills.

Playing now: Archeage, WoW, Landmark, GW2

Fantastic,so are you saying that you own every single game in the planet because they only costs 35$ each ?

So, did ESO have a successful launch? Yes, yes it did.

That is true and TERA is pretty good but I have a feeling you easily will get your moneys worth out of GW2 anyways. GW2 is larger and have loads of content, in fact I think switching between it and Tera on and off would be an excellent choice. 

But if you cant risk losing 35 euros they will probably have a new trial in august or so. I just dont see the price drop down to 20 the next year.

This is the sort of reasoning that makes me approve of temporary content.  I just don't feel that a person who waited around until the game is cheap should get the same perks as someone who paid the normal (and extremely fair) price.

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

Well if you want to play a game and support the developers you'll buy the game so they can make more games which you'll (pressumably) like and that they make some money out of it to make a living. Gaming bussiness is afterall a bussiness like any other but it involves alot more passion.

Maybe he owns all the videogames that he is interested in since they only cost $35.

I double and triple that thought.  People that take the "wait and see" attitude to the game shouldn't get the same kind of perks as those of us who were here playing since Day -3 (headstart, 3 days prior to the real launch date).

 

Those that have missed out on the Karka event, this Flame & Frost event, the first return of the Mad King,....the first Wintersday....those that just missed it, TOUGH LUCK!

yea all those events were some of the best i have played in a MMO.. halloween was just spectacular.. the final Karka fight even though it was lag city was still a 2+ hour epic battle around the entire island.. then of couse the amazing super adventure box and now the final dungeon to flame & frost.. just some great content there

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

Not a bad point. I just wish the new dungeon would be there for more than just 12 days, maybe a full month.

It's that new generation, I guess, they want everything for free... they download music, movies, games, with absolutely no respect for the people who actually work to create all those entertainment products.

If they used a specific drop for a temporary time period and then removed the ability to find it,  I would be happy enough with that and they could leave the added content permamently. However, you have to take note that I haven't done the dungeon yet, and I haven't even read about it, so I don' t know how the story part of it plays out. THAT may play a huge role in things, and cause me to change my opinion.

As a player that isn't really interested in a single character and prefers to do its own thing, but regardless buy stuff at day1 or even pre-purchases and keep logging regardless of new content or not, especially in such early stages of the game, I would really prefer if these events are/were permanent or even seasonable.
