More than likely it'll be a subscription based thing - monthly fee.

Honestly I would be incredibly shocked if this was free to play, NCsoft isn't a company which likes to piss money down the drain.

As Valadhiel said, monthly subscriptions.

well you can keep your hopes up because it hasn't been officially announced what payment method this game will use, but we can strongly speculate that it will have a monthly subscription fee (I just hope that they will have game time cards available at most major retailers) but it will be interesting if they take the same approach as Guild Wars did for their payment method where is it a buy to play.

But unfortunately we can strongly speculate that it will be a p2p or aka a monthly subscription based game.

Isn't Ukraine part of Europe?

But yeah, I'm also not the kind of person who would throw his money away on a MMO. Blade & Soul however is not just 'another MMO,' it's the best MMO I've seen, period. Though I thought FFXIV was going to challenge that, but it seems the game's "boring as hell," based on what the Japanese have been saying 'bout the beta anyway.

Hopefully you can round up enough money for the monthly fees...

though it being free would be nice, i would be glad if it is p2p, because i just find that eventually all f2p games get ruined. p2p games usually have a better community, and DO NOT have a marketplace (i hate the marketplace). its also much easier for gold sellers to be on free games.

nope,UA is neither EU nor Russia,Asia,we r alone :) we dont have most things availible in other countrys exept EU ip adress XD

and with our strange ecomomiical structure my mother cant aford even 1 monthly fee =/
as 15$ is like 1/20 from her payment

but nevertheless there would be private servers,or first CBt like in Aion could be free of charge . So i dont realy sad becouse of it,but becouse i can't play with all of u,normal ppl -not some gay cheater :sad::sob:

:haha:

To be honest I never played a P2P game because there wasn't one that got my attention... until bns. But for a game like this P2P helps the game stay more stable in the economic factor and gives the developers the initiative/must to do more updates, patches, add more content...

I would be like...

... if it will be F2P... considering this is the team of Lineage = P2P, from NCSoft = P2P, where they always publish the big revenues they are making. So honestly I don't think that will change.




nonononono :haha: thats depends on *where * u live , and *here* there is no work that pays so much,and 10 E *omg* its like 1/15 mothers payment *cough* :D
everything depends ) this games isnt localised for UA :smile:

It's a shame when people from less fortunate countries can't get involved with new MMOs, but I honestly think F2P is a horrendous system. They draw in players like you, the OP, with the promise of being free, but then to actually be good at the game you would have to spend a fortune in their cash shop.

I transferred servers and changed factions 6 times in WoW and that only cost $150. I've spent around $300 (rounded up, includes initial box purchases) in WoW for a year and a half. I spent $300 in a month in my last F2P game.

:embarrassed:

Well, if you ask me, it will be VERY hard for this game be anything than P2P. We're talking about NCSoft here and I don't remember they making any game that wasn't P2P. I'll let you guys wish but my mark words, I would be completely "OMG, WTF?! SRLY?!??!" if they did anything than P2P.
