I doubt this game will be free. Voyage Century claimed they were free until they began selling upgrades for real money. Don't be fooled.

WTF are you talking about? Alot of Free2Play games have "Item Malls" which you use real money to buy extra ingame stuff. You DON'T HAVE to buy the items, and how do you think they can make the game free to play if they don't have any source of income? fairy dust?

Florensia is completely f2p - the client is f2p, there is no monthly fee or subscription. The item shop will be introduced after the OB.

lmao...i thought this post was just a joke or something but the OP seems pretty serious. All F2P games have a cash shop of some sort and they are all usually games that require alot of grinding cause they usually sell some sort of increased xp item.

Item shop, enough said. I'd rather go p2p because I end up paying less for those games and the community seems better as a whole on p2p games.

This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

Every F2P game I know of has a cash shop. However every cash shop isn't made equal. =P

Sometimes games, like Voyage Century, start selling items that cause imbalance. I don't think things like weapons and armor should be sold in Cash Shops, especially if they're damn strong.
 

What the OP may have meant was that Florensia might be such a game, although there isn't anything that could lead to such a conclusion.

im sick of seeing ppl complaine baout RMT (real money trades) on free to play games.. you dont HAVE to buy them. You CAN play without them.

A F2P game needs to make money somehow and since its well free they have cashshop dont like it then fork out the money monthly for a game

free 7 day sub and unlocks for swtor new accounts and 90+ day inactive subs. http://www.swtor.com/r/S6kR3P

I do understand that such games need a source of income, but it's just not fair calling themselves "Free" when those who don't pay or use their shops experience something more similar to a Demo game than a Free game per se.

See MapleStory for example, they claim to be a free game, but it is more than obvious that you won't ever get over level 100 unless you buy those exp booster cash items. So, after all, there is a restriction, even being indrect, on the gameplay of those who don't pay in comparison to those who do. Basically, those who don't pay, play a "demo" version of the game, in which they can't reach a certain level, aren't able to learn some skills and choose from some classes.

And of course, if there aren't any "free" players that go to such servers to play for "free", no one will even bother buying shop items. The amount of free players they have do affect the amount of income they get, not directly, of course, but who will those premium players bully when they get their so wanted cash items?

The itemshop was released during the OB, like the people of Florensia announced.

Hehe, Qazza

You might love it now but when you reach level 20 you will see how boring the game is. It's always the same: get your quest -> completeyour quests -> grind till the next level -> get new quests ->...

But if you don't mind grinding this might be a good game for you, and they have pretty intresting updates coming up so this is actually a pretty good periode to join the game.

Flash news! every game company will ask you for money sooner or later. You know everybody need to pay the bills, and an online game have a lot of this. If it is free to play it means you can play for free, thats it, download client and play, ¿you wanna be competitive? Pay some money, come on, they have families to maintain.

As Yoda would say: "To Alakram you listen." I don't know why we have to go through this "It's not really free-to-play" stuff every single time one of these games comes out.

How not to sell me on a game: "And most people that make it past the tutorial seem to appreciate [x game's] uniqueness, even if they don't find it fun."
