Gameforge Reviewing Subscription VIP Energy Bonuses Amid P2P Allegations

Gameforge Reviewing Subscription VIP Energy Bonuses Amid P2P Allegations - MMORPG.com

SoulWorker Online is currently in "open beta", though the game's cash shop is online and selling both Silver and Gold VIP memberships. While mostly packed with typical VIP type goods (respawner, bonus keycards, etc.), they also feature extra energy, the resource needed to complete in-game activities. Silver adds 80 energy to the base 200, while Gold adds 120. If that's not enough, players can combine Silver and Gold packages and get a whopping 200 extra energy per day, double the baseline.

As a result of the effective doubling of the daily allotment of energy, players have accused Gameforge of P2W. Responding to the outcry, SoulWorker's community manager wrote:

As announced previously, we are reviewing comments and concerns regarding the Energy system. We are still collecting data and our team will continue to look into it. 

As counter measures, we will:

  •  Keep for now the free items in the shop (the Dynamite Power Vitamin Z and the Mat community)
  • Bring more frequently EP Party events
  • The VIP Membership is one additional way to get more Energy in game since it’s tradeable (you can buy it from the auction house). 

We will continue to analyze the Energy system on our servers to see if any adjustments are needed in the future and will inform you about any update in regards of that topic.

What do you think? Is this P2W as some player allege or is it just "typical" for most VIP subscriptions? Leave us your thoughts!
