Kids can't afford subs????? Then why is WOW filled with kids calling everyone noobs, doing enoying stuff all the time, wow is even worse then CS. 

Parents pay there subs to get some peace and quite. I know I would but my kids are smart enough to love GW2 :)

GW2 socialist.

This doesn't really settle my mind any, since the adults I've met in games have almost ALWAYS been worse than the kids, and that goes WAAAAY beyond MMOs.

15 bucks a month for a babysitter and a reward for good grades is a bargain.

I am confused.

You wish to complain about sub games?

You long for "mmo welfare" for these kids that cannot afford to play?

What man? What is it you want here?

 

TBH you will find many many many that long for subs to act as a firewall for the community in their chosen MMO. So you will get lots of "HELL YEAH!!!" keep it coming. "Raise the price to keep more out!!!"

Kids may not be able to afford them, but their parents can. Kids can earn it by doing their chores without being told. I know I'd pay...

I want an mmorpg where pvp matters, my enemies are not my race or class, and community matters.

I honestly wish that were true.  I cannot being to describe how often the Free to Play games are flooded with "boob" comments and just outright sillyness.  Sadly, the few remaining Sub mmorpgs aren't spared either - though arguably it is LESS.  Though, get a game like WoW on the market and it's kid city.   And why not?  The genre is built to cater to a very young audience.  The moment you see cute cuddly race options and very silly world lore that just doesn't matter at all mingled in with non stop capture the flag E-Sport pvp - it's a kid magnet.

 

Time for a game for grownups who read books and have an education, in my humble opinion.  Time for a world where people talk to each other in groups, say, "hello," to one another as opposed to, "sup" and refuse to type in text talk, i.e., iz somone that can pwr levl me?"

This is exactly why the community of such games is so much better than F2PMMOs

 Can't afford - Who we talking here?  If it is a teenager, then yes they can, easily.  I cut grass, did snow, delivered papers as a kid, then got a job, car, paid insurance, so I disagree...  If it is a 10 year old, then maybe so, kids still get allowances for chores, but I do not think they are the target so much, even though a paying customer is a paying customer.

 

Adult only?  No, as I explained earlier.

 

No time to play?  Then it doesn't matter if it is free or pay, having to pay does not make a difference for time.

 

So I say teenagers can afford it if they want it, I bought stuff I wanted, saved money up for the summer for things I really wanted, if anything things are more accessible now, since you can get pay cards for subs and pre-paid visa cards and such, where as before you had to talk a parent into letting you use a credit card, early on in mmos.

then you are one of the lucky few, when i was in my teens, me and my friends could barely afford a monthly sub, and i only had 2 friends that could only cuz one was spoiled by his parents and got everything he asked for and the other played on his older brothers account, so it just depends on your quality of life, then again, 10 years ago things were different.

You could have gone door to door offering to work for money. Worked for me 20 years ago in my teens. Works for my disabled neighbor now.

the thing is that back then trolling wasn't really as rampant as it is now if it even existed, the community was mostly dedicated, mature players not the ADD ridden COD trolls that crowd the mmos of today

 When I was a teen, they didn't have monthly subs...I saved up for things I wanted, that would easily be a monthly sub.  I worked as a dish washer when I was 13/14, delivered newspapers getting up way earlier than most before school, so not like my mom handed me things.  We were not well off.  I have not been 13-16 for a long time, but if you got a computer to play mmos on, then I do not see why you can't do some work, or do not have the opportunity to do some work to make some money.  Everyone is different, and not trying to be a jerk, but if you got a computer that can play a mmo, I do not think you are on a 'feed the children' video.

I do not know if they changed the laws, but I could work when I was under 16, just was restricted (even though the place I worked cleaning dishes didn't care, and I needed the money).  Minimum wage isn't sexy, but I did it, and 2-3 hours of work would pay for a mmo for a month.  If you live in a area with yards, people pay $20 for a yard to be cut, can't get a lawn mower or loan from the parents, do other jobs till you can buy your own lawn mower, then find 3-5 yards to do... 

 

I am sorry, but I hear kids telling me all the time how, "You don't understand", and they think they have had it rougher than anyone in the world has ever had it....All while they have it much better then I had it material item wise.

 

Old man speech:

 

When I was growing up, kids were fighting to get out and try to get the houses that would let them shovel snow and cut grass, when I moved for my job and was working 12-15 hours a day in PA, I was hoping and praying a kid would come and want to do my drive way (finally got a snow blower, shoveling 3 times a day near Lake Erie sucked on top of work), not one kid ever came to my door....Only person that ever came to my door was an adult asking one time, and I lived there for 5 years.  That would of been unheard of when I grew up....  So yeah some kids can't, but I think it is more often kids don't want to.
