PLAY plus FAQ -

The upcoming MMOG ArchLord has announced that they will be abandoning the PLAYplus model for pricing in favor of a more typical monthly fee. The following FAQ explains this in more detail.


What was the point of PLAYplus?

The objective of PLAYplus was simple; offer players of ArchLord an innovative payment system that not only rewards committed players with additional credits each month but also dramatically reduces the cost of the ongoing monthly subscription for the cheaper priced packages within the game.

What was behind the decision to change PLAYplus?

We place extremely high value on the thoughts and opinions of the members of our community and over previous weeks have been consulting them on their reactions to the PLAYplus system. As a result of this consultation we took the community feedback on board and decided to cancel the system with immediate effect switching therefore to a traditional flat ongoing monthly subscription.

How did you test the system?

We introduced the PLAYplus system into the ArchLord BETA before giving our players a number of days to test the system before we issued a survey requesting their feedback. We also sought out opinion from the official forums and then consolidated this feedback before we reached our final decision to cancel the PLAYplus system with immediate effect.

So what is the new system?

ArchLord will still contain the Chantra shop, the in-game shop in which players can use their credits to purchase the various character enhancements. However, players will now pay a set figure per month of UK £8.99, US $14.99, Europe €12.99 (plus applicable taxes where relevant). For this players will receive the same amount of Credits so everyone playing the game will be on a level playing field. The only way that players will be able to get additional credits will be through pre-organized competitions and special events.

What are these Credits used for now?

The credits are a reward to ALL players that can be used to purchase a range of in-game consumable enhancements that can be used to improve your character in the game. You will NOT be able to buy armour, weapons or other items, but you can cash in your credits for a range of consumable enhancements designed to assist your in-game progression. To clarify there are no time limits on the credits and unspent credits will roll over into the next month but it’s important to also emphasize that ALL players will receive the same amount of credits each month.

Is there another way to get credits?

There will be additional ways to get credits. At the moment this will be mainly through competitions, promotions and such events. We are looking closely at other ways we can use the ArchLord credit system to reward players but nothing has been decided as yet.
