They charge as much as a small console for their EQ Landmark game, which is still a game in a beta stage, how do they think they are going to get a large player base for EQNext with those kind of prices?

I've never seen a game that is so expensive, even most collector's versions of games aren't that expensive.

How can you ask $100 for a game in beta??

That's for Everquest Next: Landmark. There's no price been mentioned for Everquest Next.

I doubt EQNext will be any cheaper, since that is supposed to be their main game. They're obviously hurting for cash.

So you're taking the price of one game and attributing it to the price of another unrelated game even though at one point both games are going to be released as free. I'm not sure I get the point.

EQNext and EQNext:Landmark are both F2P at release.

SWTOR is the greatest mmo ever!

I don't see how this is a bad thing as long as It's beta.

People are obviously willing to pay, so it allows them to make some money before the game releases as a free to play.

 

They could just not have the game available for play at all if they decided to.

$100 is a weird definition of F2P.

 

SoE's version of F2P tends to restrict major parts of their games, such as in EQ and EQII.

It definitely would be if it actually did cost $100. Since it will not cost $100 and will actually be free, the F2P definition fits well.

Founders packs are for people who want to support the games business model and play a little bit earlier.

By supporting the model, your money is supposed to go to future development and the like.. that's generally how founders packs should work.

I doubt i'll be buying in but I can see why people are keen.

Nothing is ever 'free'.

You will pay, or have a lesser experience. Your choice.

So then a lesser experience is free.

The game hasn't been released yet. That money is pretty much to get into Alpha. If you want to say it's too much money for Alpha then I think that's great. Saying it's too expensive to play for F2P and the game hasn't even released yet isn't being honest.

 

The game will have a large chunk of funding from people that are too impatient to wait and see how it turns out when it actually releases. I am okay with that. Also, I don't consider this crossing a line at all and I am heavily biased against Free to Play MMOs in general.

yup. guess i'll form my impression of the game based on the lesser impression.

 

p.s. "F2P too pricey" is going to be a meme...

That's pretty much the entire point of the model. You get an impression of the game based on what you have seen for free. You then make a decision about whether to stay for free, leave or drop a few dollars here and there to get a better experience and support the game you like.

I spent $20 on Landmark because I wanted to support the company. Doubt I will ever spend another cent on it though. Just like I spent $20 on PoE even though it was free. I played LoL and Hearthstone without every spending money. F2P is as free as you want it to be. I got plenty of enjoyment out of every free game I've played and if I decided I really liked the game I will usually drop $20 just to support them.

If you haven't seen pre-order prices similar or worse, you might be new ...

And so you will get what you asked for. Just try not to complain too loudly when you don't like it.

I'll just not play if I don't like it. And I didn't ask for anything.

I think you fail to realize that this is if you want access in alpha and beta. Please do some research before you state that one has to pay as much as a small console.

what people paying now is just like kickstarter fund in many other game. i would careless about what people paying for what they want.

what we truly need to see is how much freedom we get in their F2P. if it like SWTOR, then its a good bye. but if we have full access to game while they only selling cosmetic or very minor support in game, then i dont mind either.

we have a choice to buy it or not and we still have access to the game . that what F2P is. however, i dont trust any big name company either. just wait and see.
