OP  8/19/13 7:36:06 AM#1

Carbine Studios has announced the pricing model FAQ and a blog post by Jeremy Gaffney for its upcoming game, WildStar. The game will feature a subscription revenue model with a twist. For more information, you can check out the official site or Bill Murphy's report here at MMORPG.com.

First, let’s laydown the basics for you.  The box for WildStar will cost you the now standard price of $59.99, which gets you 30-days of free game time, and three week-long passes for friends to try the game too.  After that, you’ll have to pay $14.99 a month, or cheaper ($13.99 for three months, $12.99 for six, $10.99 for a year) if you pay for multiple months at a time.  But the big twist that WildStar is throwing into the mix is that you still can play for free... if you’re willing to work for it in-game.  That’s where CREDD comes in.

Hrrmm.  I was hoping to see more of a hybrid biz model for this.  Like maybe a cheaper sub ($9.99-ish), blended with a cosmetic / fluff micro-shop so they could recoup the cheaper sub prices.   

Ah, well.  Too much to hope that Wildstar would be inovative or daring with the buisness model as well.  After all, the bottom line - is the bottom line.

P2P themepark in this day and age ... why do they never learn ?

I will be checking the game when it goes F2P , which it will - based on unfortunate choice of pricing model.

Pretty much this, but I'll prob avoid the game thanks to mediocre pvp options. The day of monthly sub fees are pretty much done. I wouldn't be surprised if they have the f2p model built and ready to install before the game releases for when the downfall starts.

Girlfriend only allows me one P2P MMO subscription.  :<

 

/shewearsthepantsintherelationship

 

Hope others have fun with it if they're interested; just haven't seen reason to give up my current game / plans for it.

 

My main problem is that I barely play any game as is.  If they made it so you don't lose time if you don't play that day (I.E. 30 days, one day used if you log in), I might be able to convince her to have multiple.  With B2P or P2P I am free to play whenever I want and to invest in said game if I feel that I've got my money's worth.

 

I'm bad with fees (You can only say it's only a couple lunches per month so many times before you see that you've spent $5,000 in expansions / monthly fees / services over time), but great and controlling impulse buying and rewarding developers if they provide me with entertainment.

 

Perhaps that's why those other models are successful for a lot of companies, and popular with all age groups.  :>

 

When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

Hard to believe such harshness about this pricing model as in the comments above this one. I personally am not surprised to see a few folks upset and posting it here . I dont mind if its sub, i prefer sub over f2p < free to play > or p2w < pay to win > cash shops.  The interesting thing here is they said you can play free from launch, for some type of game currency , which you have to earn in game. So there IS a built in free to play option.

I just hope game dev's dont change things based on the comments of a few people, like most other game companys have done, and its easy to see where that got them! 

As far as a monthly sub, thats alot cheaper then cash shops overall imho, and where are you going to get this much entertainment  for less then the price of 2 mcdonalds combo meals a Month. So stop all this Complaining about how expensive this is. You want it for free, you dont want to level a character, you dont want to raid for gear, gimmie gimmie gimmie , its all BS. Go find something else to do with your time, gaming isnt for you!

Well I can already see it now. A year after release it will be going f2p but by then the lackluster launch and turnoffs involved in sub model will have already hurt the game.

Really bad idea from an MMO filled with great ideas. Too bad this idea will doom the game before launch.

Well the CREDD will probably mean you have to be really dedicated to the game to play for free.  I was hoping for a BTP model like GW2.  I will probably take a wait and see approach to this game...

I have no problem with Subscription based games.  However I don't see the point of there being CREDD in the game when it costs $19.99 for a month subscription, as it cannot be traded or gifted. What is the point of an item that costs $19.99 that gives you the same exact thing you already have to pay for at $14.99 a month?  Everquest, which is now free to play has a similar item and you can buy it or do the subscription.  In that it makes sense as you can play for free and then buy the item from other players.  If CREDD cannot be traded or gifted can it be sold?  Even if you could sell it who would buy it when it gives them nothing they don't already have? 

I guess I just don't understand the point of CREDD or a similar item if you don't have a game that is F2P with subscription being an option.

I'm a casual player. I like trying out and playing different games. When I am subbing I feel like I am not getting my money's worth if I am playing some other game.

Or to put it another way, I would rather spend 15 a month in the cash shop buying things I want/will use than paying for server rental.

Lastly, we all know they will be going ftp in 6 months or less, based on this simple truth.  Please name an AAA mmo that is sub and getting high retention (not Wow or Eve). Now name the mmos that started as sub and went ftp or started out btp/ftp.

Wildstar isn't a sandbox like Eve and is probably not going to be a freak of nature like WoW. Its an AAA title so it has tons of money pumped into it.  Does anyone really think that when sub numbers start to drop and show a steady decline that they won't go ftp?

Are you happy with paying full price plus a sub for 4 - 6 months. Only to have the Devs announce they are going ftp? Actually I would guess they will add a cash shop first then go btp.

No one should be happy they are going sub, because the reality is its not going to stay that way.  They are going to get as much money from you subbers as they can then switch to ftp.  Please look at recent AAA titles and realize what's going on.

CREDD is a option that you buy to get more gold in game. You pay 19.99 for it and it is put on the market. When you sell yours for in game currency you get the gold. So basicly it gets rid of (or tries too) the gold sellers. Less spam is good. 

Ex. 

Player A = buys CREDD for 19.99

Player B = Buys CREDD for in game currency to play another month

Player A = receives in game currency 

Gold Seller cant sell gold cause all the Player A are getting gold anyway.

So its good for hte player that cant afford to play but is a good farmer, And its good for the players that have spending money but doesnt have time to farm the money.

 

I say buy the game . See if you like it. If you do then buy 1 month at a time or the whole CREDD thing.

If you dont like it then wait until it goes free to play.  

If you spend about 6hrs to 12hrs on this game then you got your moneys worth on the first month . Cause buying games for full price you seem to get only 6 to 12 hrs of gameplay. 

So enjoy if you like

Not really true... A lot of MMORPGs where you can buy/sel in-game cash shop items, have more goldsellers than the one that do not allow that feature. Why? Simple. Player A now has XXX gold and wants to sell it. Since not a lot of players do have so much gold, he sells half of that XXX gold for $12,50, allowing him a profit of $5 on one timecard. Do this with 100s of timecards and your profit goes up fast. And you tell me this is not true..? Try to look at the EU Lineage II servers where you can sell cash shop items. Good thing there is that the GMs actually BAN the goldsellers and buyers...

So yeah, some players indeed will play for free with these CREDDS, but they also fuel the RMT. IMO the CREDD (or PLEX for EVE) has to be removed completely from the game!

Yah i was only ex. from what was given out and their way of thinking. 

And your talking about a AH or cash shop sort of thing . They stated that this wont be a AH it will be more like a stock exchange. And you can only buy at the lowest rates. cant pick.

Only until that stock is gone you can get the next lowest price. 

Not to discredit anything you have said . You are right with people farming for gold . You will see Spammers trying to sell gold at lower prices then what this sort of AH(stock exchange) are selling for. 

My concern is How much for how much. 

Am i paying 19.99 for lets say 1000 gold? Not worth it. Am I farming 10,000 and only get a lets say 1/4 of the monthly cost? Yah not worth it.

I feel this is a sensible notion with Wildstar being a no name IP, Final Fantasy and maybe TESO can get away with a sub fee for a while but Wildstar? the mainstream market has moved on from box price and sub. So I agree with all the competition in the market they'll struggle to retain players unless they have a magical content maker churning out the top quality updates but really this is a strangely anachronistic move to me.

Didn't Tera have an item for subscription time like this and it didn't work out either?

I understand that FF14 has a sub since the Japanese are proud and would consider a f2p version something dishonorable.

But NCSoft never had anything other in mind than profit, so I don't understand this decision for a payment model which seems to have its origin in a vivid dream of Scrooge Duck.

Me to.

Problem is that when the game launches P2P and players start to leave because of natural subscription drop , there is not much for company to do but go F2P , and lose credibility.

Instead going B2P , and having steady revenue like GW2
