Just for giggles, how many games can we name TODAY with a $14.95 or up subscription-only profit model.
He who wrestles with us strengthens our nerves and sharpens our skill. Our antagonist is our helper.

To be fair, the vision was always to have a PLEX-like system, aka Goblin Balls. It just never made sense to put in given the low level of development.

PLEX is still a subscription only model. It just involves a cash-rich player paying the subscription for a space-rich player.

OK, sure, from the perspective of the business, that's certainly true. From a player's perspective, however, it's distinct.

Final Fanatasy XIV. WoW and EVE of course. Wildstar went free-to-play last year. I am sure there are others.

Istaria: Chronicles of the Gifted is still going as well at $14.95 though they do have a 'non land owner' account for $9.95 and they offer a small discount if you buy several months in bulk.
"Circles of power, gathered by EARTH, welcomed by GOLD, in strife and in mirth. Focused by CRYSTAL, guided by LIGHT, showing the way, by day and by night. wrought in IRON, strengthened by STEEL, together we stand, in wrack and in weal. Hidden in SHADOW, explored by WOOD, we circle together, for the greater good." –Maxikyd– http://www.kotcguild.com/

Thanks for the comments!

Quick point to clarify - PvP and settlement warfare will be an important part of the game - we will be providing enhancements and modifications to the current incomplete implementation, not discarding it. The goal is to expand PvP options to be an exciting and rewarding aspect of game play, with a combination of (very few) "hard" and (almost all) "soft" constraints so that PvP does not dominate the many other activities available to players. Comments in these forums and blog documents on this site allude to some of the mechanisms and possibilities that will be a part of accomplishing this goal.

And so the game will resemble closely what has been talked about and dreamed of for sooo long. Marvelous! smile
