Housing isn't going to save Rift. They need to go B2P and drop the sub. Price it at $29 with occasional sales at $15-$20. No way it's going to keep subs with GW2 around.

I would have to agree. The GW2 model is a very good one. I've already dropped $200 on crystals in that game, buying dyes, keys, bag slots, and bank slots.

Not going to happen. There is no need for it either. Just because one company that makes a decent game has B2P doesn't mean the world needs to follow. Rift is clearly doing just fine financially as they can afford to pump out content and expansions with ease. 

 

People are cheap. 15 (or less depending on your plan) a month for a game that gets tons of updates is peanuts.

 

P.S. A game with a more than stable player base does not need any saving.

^ This!!!  RIFT is a great game

And in my life time I have found that "you get what you pay for".

Housing is a big draw for any MMORPG, and RIFT would be the first of the newer games (that I know of)  to have it

(older ones being EQ2 and Vanguard).

You know, ive gotten to the point where i just picture the people who make these posts little kids with their fingers crossed that their post will start a tidal wave of uprising for the game to go free so that they can play because their parents refuse to let them set up a reoccuring payment on their CC.  Hell even unemployed people on gov money can afford the 50 cents a day it costs to play a p2p.

 

Its really getting old.  Dont you kids have enough free games to play?  Oh...are those games not good or something?  Or is it you dont want to play a pay to win game because you think developers should work for little or no money?  

 

Its really baffling and a sign of the entitled generation were hearing more and more about.

 

You dont want to pay a terrible horrible sub then stop going to all the games with subs and begging for them to drop their revenue by adding a cash shop youll end up complaining about anyway.  B2P doesnt work in a game thats ALREADY launched several expansions and massive content updates.  Perhaps when the game was new, they could have sold you a $60 expansion every few months, which comes out to a p2p sub anyway roughly.

 

As much as i dislike this type of mmorpg, i really do respect Trion for sticking with this game and pumping out content like it is.  This really might be the best wow-park out there, even better than the shallow GW2...a game whos payment method you want trion to emulate...they havent even tried to sell their players an endgame yet...so its still to be seen how people will react to $60 for no endame and then the possiblity of paying for one later.

 

As long as the developers keep pumping out content, like trion has done.  P2P with a sub is really the cheapest business method and results in a completely fair and even playfield for all who are supporting.  Yeah i agree some of the p2p games out there that dont update and dont develop could probably stand to get their asses in gear or find another way to get paid.

A game like this deserves p2p...and last i checked they are not charging you box prices for their content releases...another positive about this company.

Go play GW2 then, i dont mind paying a monthly sub if it will keep the cheap morons away.  To The idiot who allready dropped $200 intp gw2 i have only sympathy to his parents who will have to pay for this junk in the end. I really wish there was an age filter for the forums, whould keep the worst away.

What is with you and this obsession with B2P model?

You know not everyone in GW2 is paying less money to play. There are people (lots of people) who are buying gems. Even if all they are buying is alt and bank slots,  for many many people B2P is not cheaper in any way. So why do you want to impose this on everyone else because you want to be a freeloader?

Not every game in the world is built around it from the drawing board up? Not every game is going to benefit from this model. Only look at all the F2P models that are failing? You think SWTOR is now going to take off in some raging success? I wonder what EA will use as it's excuse when they can't give that game away. And finally, k eep that damned cash shop out of Rift, thank you!

It's the sad state of the genre. The next big title has as many threads discussing issues with it's business model than issues with the game itself.

The Critical Hit Pretzel!

9/07/12 9:45:10 PM#9

You do realize B2P works by making people pay for expansions packs more often AND using cash shop which provides advantages. Its a good model if your going F2P but with a big budget cost initially (AA games mostly will be in this route) but its probably one of the worst things to do. A cash shop in place needs to make money somehow, and games that are F2P or B2P WILL sell advantages. In GW2 its in game gold and boosts. 

 

I wouldn't mind a Freemium model, but a B2P is a poor model for a game that focuses on lots of updates. GW2 can work because they are NOT going to be releasing many updates or extra content except in bulk. In the end, You will probably be paying exactly the same cost with GW2 as you would to be playing Rift over a period of time, if not more if your into vanity items.

Rift has under 300k subscriptions and although profitable its not groundbreaking either.  If they implemented a B2P with cash shop similar to GW2 I guarentee you they would double their concureent userbase and triple their profits.  Sub based games are a dieing breed and theres only room for one currently.

As we gave yet to see if gw2 can generate enough profit for further development I would hold judgement till b2p proves it works.

Other sub based games are dead/dying because they suck(ed). Not because they charged a sub.

i very much doubt that trion would agree..if they can afford to give an expansion pack away if you do a years sub,i would say they are making more money than you think..a yearly sub to rift is £72.that works out at just over £5 a month and you get storm legion expansion pack for nothing thrown in.financially they are doing great.

sorry my maths sux..£6 a month.

No, a F2P model Like Lotro, AoC and now SWTOR is the answerd, B2P with content updates every 6-12 months, dont work as a long term MMO.

What about if they just keep putting out a quality product and continue to make their money the way they have been? Maybe that would work too.

If it goes B2P all the pathetic little Gw2 fanbois will just rip on the game and call it a copy.

I agree completely, leave a good game alone and go play your messiah wannabe MMO. Besides, escept for the headstart weekend, Rift seemed mildly effected from GW2, now it seems alot more packed then it did before GW2 release. I m thinking the people waiting for GW2 logged in less, and alot now realize GW2 isn t that great, now came back to Rift. Sure seems like it anyways.
