    Man, that Lifetime subscription has me drooling. Please play with the idea, in the future, of having a more-affordable lifetime subscription add-on! That $10,000 price-tag is beastly.

    We actually have people who grabbed lifetime subs at $375-$500 subs but we quickly removed them as our game will be sub based so removing that monthly revenue could hurt us a lot, we will continue to review our pledges but it is unlikely we will revert that change for the reasons given my friend :)

    I like that idea and always thought games should offer it. If EQ had this option I probably would have went with a lifetime subsription and would have stuck with the game even after its deteriation.

     

    Subscriptions could be:

    1 month: $14.99/mo

    3 months: 13.99/mo = $41.99 up front

    6 months: $12.99/mo = $77.99 up front

    1 year: $9.99/mo = $119.88 up front

    Lifetime: $700-1,000 up front (so you basically have to play for 6-9 years to break even but after that you're playing for free...and it gives the company a good chunk ofmoney up front).

     

    Businesses like to have funds/cash on hand so they can improve their product and this is a good way of making sure that happens.

    Yeah a small discount if you pay for a yearly sub seems reasonable. I'd probably go for that if it was a thing.
