but to hogtie them in skills when the game is basicly a skill based system is rather sad. im used to freediums and cookie cutter f2p games where you cant do all the fun stuff without item mall or sub. but of those they atleast only limit the minior things. 

PoTBs it was some ships or total ships allowed and bank stuff.

DCUO it was total allowed stored bank and some maps that were xps. 

but none really limited skill levels or the skills you could unlock :/ ect.

this f2p version of mo sounds really bad in that regard. given that its a heavy PVP game where skills are the most important thing, they are litterally forcing you to sub while claiming its f2p. so why even bother dropping the sub and saying its f2p "sort of" 

if whateveryone is saying is truely accurate, any f2per is pretty much fked playing mo if they never plan to sub. 

 

basicly it comes right down to it, if you plan to play mo you have to sub you can not play as  f2per at all in any sort of enjoyable mannor.  while granted if you like mo you should be subbing to it, i guess..  as someone who has never played it, this fake freedium makes me not want to. :/ 

 

im not a huge fan of narfed pvp, where you are screwed if you dont have the exact same stuff.

The answer to your questions is simple. Sv is a bunch of kids that having the advantage of Henriks dad money. This group of people, desided at some point to make their own game to play with. Since then and when they realized that playerbase for sanbox games is hungry for a decent up to date game, created a company even though all of them where clueless concerning management, marketing and most important concerning coding, developing and running a game. To bypass those few "minor issues" Henrik Nystrom, who is the front man of the failed boy band, was very consistent on hyping, lying, deceiving and using not so legitimate tactics in order to keep subbed few of the naive or if you prefer people that desperatelly wanted to believe that his game will become decent eventually. For more than 2 years followed this route and now that the limited sandbox playerbase is fed up with his bs and even the most naive realized that MO project will never become the game they where hoping to and the company behind it is just a fraud, he for the first time listened to few remaining hardcore fanboys (who in cooperation with SV's total lack of skills and professionalism brought the game one step beyond plugging it out) and now he is following their suggestions trying desperatelly to save himself from drowning. Suggestions of the type "grab yourself from the hair and pull yourself out of the water to save yourself".

First episode came with the donations (free MO) project, that came from a guy called Lahuzer if i remember correctly, and filled Henriks pockets with a couple of thousands of dollars (being generous on the amount) that could keep the game going on for several days.

Second episode is the failed f2p project that came from another fanboy called Diphrael. To make things clear and to give you a clear picture on whos suggestions SV is following i ll say a couple of things about Diphrael. A sad little griefer that used every possible exploit, glitch, window on their crappy code to grief others by the broken thievery system. One guy that was constantly crawling the forums bashing anyone who was giving some constractive feedback, suggestions or simply was criticising SV for their numerous failures, broken promisses etc etc. One guy that was claiming everything in MO was smooth and running appart from thievery who wanted some love. One guy that was yelling "stop bitching and move on" to anyone who had a complain to SV.  Today the same guy made a suggestion post (that Henrik followed blindly to his total) by gathering many of the suggestions (from good ones to terrible ones) he was against at first place, concerning the f2p model that SV implemented as we speak. Due to lack of vision, skills, knowledge and education SV is following blindly a f2p model that is poorly designed, fundamentally wrong, doomed as much as childish and retarded, without even adjusting it to something sensible.

The bottom line is that at this point SV reached the bottom of their own box. They started by hyping the game itself and gathering a quite large amount of money by selling thousands of preorders of different game versions and all that money where used in anything but developement, while MO more than two years after release, is a game in alpha state riddled with bugs, exploiters and exploits, retarded gm's that have the right to interfere with the virtual world, take sides and change even the outcome of battles that involve several players (paying customers). They did one mistake after another and they kept repeating the same mistakes over and over again untill today that even the most diehard fans are tired of and stoped supporting. And now that they are at the end of their line, they resort in desperate measures, while not a single moment in their short history focused their energy in developing their own game or hire appropriate professionals to do so.

You need to look at the big picture. If everybody goes F2P than 60 will be the new 100 so there will be balance and nobody will have to pay money. :D

And LOL at the guy with the "fail math" argument. That was hilarious man. 3 to 5 were 40%. :D What's this math for retards?

Good post agirop. That is SV's biggest issue, they move from one gimmick to the next in order to keep ther game running for a bit longer. Regrettably, making their game into a good one isn't on the list.

In my opinion, this is not F2P.

Just look at it that way. MO is not free yet. Its just an infinit trial.

MO is an incomplete game so look at it that way. Open beta is back and you may subscribe if you want.
