The only time you run out of chances is when you stop taking them.

Otherwise stop blantantly shit stirring.

 

Just to avoid any unnecessary confusion...from the FAQ on the Offical Website

1.6 Will we have to pay a subscription fee to play?
Yes, there will be a monthly subscription fee. The price is yet to be determined, but will most likely follow the norm of the genre. The first 30 days of gameplay will be included when you purchase the retail box.

 

Also most people believe that this game's subscription will be $14.95USD per month with the first month free.

$19 a month is not consistant with the same prices of the majority of other online mmorpg's :)

it's just a suggestion.
This isn't every other mmorpg.
This is Age of Conan.

 

No shit!

So why the misleading title, why do we have people in here believing the game is going to be that much?

Next time might a suggest a better forum topic title that way people aren't mis-led.

While thats too rich for my blood I dont think 20 a month would be an issue for their players.  The game is very adult and I dont think too many teens will be alowed to play by their parents anyway.  15 is the norm and that is whats most likely imo.

Why does higher monthly cost  = Adult / Mature. That's a completely ignorant thought. Nor can anyone here list any reason that would make this game worth any more to play a month than any other game out on the market. To sit here in this thread and rally behind paying more to play a game is fuckin retarded. Why don't you just ask conan subscribers to take it in the ass too, cause you know, it'll only hurt a little in the beginning. People need to stop believing that the same service under a different name is worth any more than the next. Companies only raise prices when they see that customers are ignorant enough to keep paying more for the same service.

sorry to say but if i am to pay 20 instead of 15 thats a 33.33% increase (roughly ) therefore i should expect

server stability to increase 33%
lagg decrease 33%
GM availability increase 33%
graphics increase 33%
Gamplay increase 33%
world size increase 33%
and i can keep going

so unless the game's quality is also increased 33% on all aspects and not just because they have a new concept its not worth paying 33%

First of all, AOC is just a game.  It is not the savior of the MMORPG genre, it will not be perfect.  There will be people who dislike it.  It will not sell more copies than WOW did.

If any game could raise their monthly fees it would be a major player like WOW who sets the bar...not a new game just coming out of the blocks like AOC will be doing.

And don't think prices will stay at $14.95 forever, they won't.  People forget, it wasn't that long ago that 12.95 was the standard monthly fee, the current standard will one day rise.

But I don't see it jumping up to $19.95..... more likely it will be a small bump, like 15.95 or 16.95.... or they'll try to sell us premium features like VG did. 

I even think we'll one day see premium accounts, with special features and benefits (mostly cosmetic) only available to those willing to pay for them.

Guys don't you see i am suggesting this for OUR own good .
It will help us in the long run,just go with the flow guys,this is a good idea.

So wait, tell us all again how this will "help us in the long run"? You just keep saying that it's for our own good over and over, but fail to cite how exactly giving them 5 more dollars a month is going to benefit me. First off, you don't even know if the game is good so your arguement that it will show other companies that we will pay higher for better products is flawed. What if we all buy the game, and it sucks? What does that show the producers then? That we are all stupid and buy anything that we are TOLD is innovative and new? So basically what you are suggesting is that we all spend more money in order to prove to game companies that we will in fact CONTINUE to spend more money in the future on games that don't necessarily need to be good as much as hyped....

And 2 snickers before bed is a disgusting idea. You are going to end up killing yourself like that my man.....

a very good point. When they say that conan has mature themes.. unfortunately that's going to  be more desirable to someone under 18 than a true adult playing the game... fuck polygonal tits, seen plenty of em in real life.. the only way I see this game as being truly mature is if maybe once very month I have to figure out my ingame taxes and go get a prostate exam on my character every 10th level.

The logic on this is honestly flawed from the get go. The OP states that prices of things like candy bars and sodas go up so why not MMO's. Well the problem there is that prices of food goods go up largely in part to prices for shipping. Shipping costs go up largely in part due to the cost of gas. So if costs for this game were going to go up I would think logic would dictate that the game would be more expensive off the shelf NOT at the subscription phase.

At times 15$/mo is hard enough to want to pay especially considering many games lack good monthly content or anything worth paying for. Too many MMO's coming out feel little different than you're playing a single player game and that's definately not even worth the 15/mo. let alone a 20-25/mo. sub. 

The truth is, as stated earlier, the only thing i've seen for Age of Conan that's different, other than the fact it's based around the whole Conan thing, is the combat system. That alone hardly warrants a price hike. If they were to have significant monthly story lines and interactive events and other such goings on, as well as steady monthly updates bringing in new content on a regular basis THAT might warrant 20/mo. But considering, as in every other game, players would be lucky to get 1/2 that 15/mo. will probably suffice, if not the the (now) less common 12.99.

But, also as stated earlier, I think the OP is little more than a Troll looking for some action. Especially since now his argument seems to have degraded to little more than "But this is Age of Conan! *splooge*" Boobs and blood don't warrant "adult oriented" or a price hike. I don't know many adults who are really all that keen on pixel boobs, to me that's geared more to enticing teenagers to lie to the folks and take a look. And this is hardly the first game with either of those things, when Neocron first came out it had topless and naked strippers and, of course, blood. It's sub at the time was 9.99.

If I get quality I'm willing to pay more. Considering currently I can't be arsed to even play an MMO I'm having trouble even finding standard quality let alone something exceptional.

i avoid those kind of chores by going to video games.
taxes on the other hand could be a cool implementation in a new concept (but none of the calculation things... like city taxes and stuff but thats another topic for another day

To Ted Danson (i loved Cheers loll )-The first month will be 'free."
Can any of you that dislike the thought of paying extra per month .....imagine
playing for free for one month and saying to yourself "hey this is the greatest mmorpg i've ever played" I guess i will pay 19.95 a month after all,'cause i want to continue to play this?

I think you might.

Ok man, referencing what i said in my post above, I really need you to explain to me why you're so gung ho that AoC is/will be the greatest MMO ever.
And if you're only reasoning is "it's ago of conan! *splooge*" don't bother to answer.

Yes, it sounds better but it doesn't make sense.
It doesn't make sense to pay less for more quality.
Like i said you wont be paying the 19.95 for the 1st month anyways so
you can decide if you wish to subscribe for a teeny weeny little bit more.

By golly, why stop there?! I'll just give them payment per hour, and send along a nice fruit basket and a mason jar filled with my own blood while I'm at it!

If they want I'll even give them my first born, just to know they'll keep my game alive!

It does not make sense to pay less for more quality?  That makes a ton of sense to me.  You offer me a 2007 BMW for $20k or a 2007 Ford for $50k and I will likely choose the BMW.  I won't come to you and say, "Hey... um I should really be paying you $70k for this car, it has more quality than that Ford that they are charging $50k for."

It may make sense to the developers to have us pay more for more quality... but "quality" is going to be a VERY high bar to set.  And, then it only makes sense if the number of people they get playing a month at $20 is substantially higher than what they could have had at $15.

I think they would rather have 1 million subs at $15/month than have 500,000 at $20.  But, maybe quality if subscriber is more important to them than total revenue...

I know it's hard to swallow paying more for anything;
but I think even those of you unhappy with paying a few more dollars per month for Age of Conan
will ,if you want to continue to play after 30 days.
