Stang,

All MMO's that I've played to date don't offer discounts of any kind. My wife and I always have to buy 2 of every MMO and pay for 2 accounts. It sucks.

I'm currently paying for 2 Dark Age of Camelot accounts, a Neocron account, a Shadowbane account and soon to be 2 Planetside accounts and at least 1 Star Wars Galaxies.

Yeah, I'm gonna have to start cancelling stuff, it's getting out of hand!

I have nothing else that I can cut out of my budget besides buying the needed RAM for my computer. I already don't see movies, buy CD's, go out to eat, or buy anything thats not for school or to fuel the vehicle that gets me there. Also I pay for a toll tag wich costs me over a doller to get back and forth from school.

I will wait till I get a job and have money saved up to pay for a year or so of school before joining in on PS.

Damn Nosferatu!!

I pretty much had a good feeling that there wouldnt be a discount just dreaming you know .

Ill just hog Gryphons account for a while .

Paying off credit cards is more important than getting 2 games and accounts right now .

Yeah, it's a wee bit excessive. I'm gonna go cancel neocron and daoc tonight because i don't play them enough to warrant paying for them.... and after re-reading my post I feel guilty.

I sure hope my wife will play Planetside. She liked Tribes 2 a lot. I offered to grab another beta from fileplanet for her and she declined, so who knows.

If there was more content at release (PLATOONS, DAMMIT!) I'd pay. I can afford it the thirteen bucks, yes, but I don't feel I'll be getting the money's worth.

I'm actually questioning whether to hang around after beta....the game is fun, but not what I would call enthralling

I'm willing to pay for a couple of reasons. 13 bucks isn't really alot of money....1 less lunch out every week and I could save more then enough to cover that, maybe even eat a little better too.

Also, as a bunch of us in LoS learned when we ran a BF1942 server, it's a pain in the ass. It's worth it to me to have someone else police the server, and keep out the cheats and griefers. 50 cents a day for less stress when I'm playing? Sign me up.

Money is not the issue for me. It's the overall game goals. Take a base to lose a base to take a base to lose a base.... You lock a continent, they lock a continent, you both lose your locks, take a base, lose a base, take a base, lose a base.

There will be more content and features on release. There's no sense in giving us the whole enchilada for free, without leaving some stuff for the release group.

At this point, I'm still going to buy the game, and play it for the free month, but after that, depending on how the release version is, we'll see.

But the caveat to that is this: I don't want to see ATF be just a Beta outfit. I talked to BEE War again last night, and he told me that they were still deliberating on joining ATF, but he said that if they went Vanu, the'd be here. And he said that was a pretty sure thing.

So we have even more peeps wanting to come over.

I hear ya HD...that's more a decision that everyone has to make on their own, value is a hard thing to define specifically for everyone.

That said, doesn't the musical base thing also have to do with no real incentive to defend? It's human nature to go for the greatest reward, and capping bases provides the greatest reward in xp, so thats what people seem to do. If we as an empire stopped to defend a base (in our outfits case we could probably cover 2), would that at least slow down the base game? Is it a flaw in the game or a flaw in how we play it, or both?

Regardless, I've seen so many changes just since I got into beta that I have a lot of faith in the dev teams ability to find the right balance between defensive and offensive rewards. If you don't play the game on release, definately stick around and keep track of the changes, in 3 months it might be exactly what you want to play.

Yeah, I think you'll get some BEE in here. Unfortunately, I don't think it will be terribly many. For a few who played the beta its not holding their interest anymore. So there may only be 5 or so of us.
