Yes it can.

I strongly recomend new players to play a day or a week for free, and then deposit what they would to buy a box off the shelf, and then each month put in what they would for a subscription.

 

This approach will work for most adults with atleast a simple understanding of money and economics. It will likely not work for your average 13yr old who may not be capable of budgeting or understanding risk vs reward consepts. (no offence to the young, I have met very buisness savy kids and really stupid adults, but that is still the general steriotype in my mind)

 

You should be able to play with that for the first year or so no problem. If you are interested in an old guide for using that budget I can try to find it for you, some things have changed since it was written but the idea is still applicable.

 

In my mind any game worth playing is going to cost me some, but it is only here that I have a legit means of possibly getting some of that back when im done or tired of it. (still having fun 4yrs later so not sure when thats gona happen :P )

 

hope that helps,

Nice!

I hope you added him as your ingame Mentor?

That will allow you to get a full set of armor and a 4x4 truck once you graduate and will get him a random Mentor Edition item as well.

If you find someone willing to help you who is knowledgable the mentor system is a good way that the game rewards that relationship.

Ok thanks for the info, think I will try the game over the weekend but still not sure if I should quit my SW:TOR sub or play another month.

In any class, I will give it a shot. This game sounds like a refreshing change from your normal, casual Themeparks.

Curious if you tried it and what your inital impressions were, and if you needed any help or not.
