Even playing for free seems kind of dumb, I'd rather be able to use any of the chat system and not get some items, rather than only playing HALF of wizard city.
      I agree

      OT: If you look at some of the Webkinz fansites then some people have in the 100's. Isn't that ridiculous?

      They vaguely mention other ways to get crowns, but it's probably something they won't deliver.

      Before giving advice to corporations, it might be in your best interest to educate yourself. When a sponsor invests in a business, it isn't "Hey KingsIsle, we like you, here's 10 million dollars to cover the cost of the game, alright cya later." No, they invest to help, and then they demand a large percntage of the profit. This is not a smart way to run a business in the long term. Sure, you may come out even, but you hardly make any profit, which is the purpose of a business.

      I realize this. KingIsle isn't discovered as far as MMO sites, which not too many 8 years old check frequently. With the money, they can:

      1) Make a good advertising campaign for the game, and in doing so, attract a wider audience.

      2) Pay their workers, and establish a lower price so more people will join, for the purpose of getting money to pay back.

      Any other reasons?

      1) I would hope KingsIsle already has an advertising campaign that they will eventually launch. Usually in business, an amount of the initial investment by the CEO is set aside for marketing the product.

      2) That is a decision that the marketing department would make. Do they think it's worth lowering the price by a factor of 2, in hopes of attracting 2 time the number of subscribers. Keep in mind that these 2 things would not be equal in terms of profit. Each player costs the company money to maintain per month, they take up a spot in memory, and a spot on the server. With more people, comes the payment for more servers. So having 60,000 subscribers at 10 dollars a month is much more profitable than 120,000 at 5 dollars a month.

      Although having more people usually helps with word-of-mouth marketing the product, it all comes down to what the marketing department deems best for the company.
      Anything worth fighting for, is worth fighting dirty for.

      Re: Pricing Model Announcement

      I want to try and clear things up. Most of us who are discussing this pricing issue are doing so because we want to show KingIsle how we feel. It's not that we can't pay for the game, aren't willing to pay for the game, or just don't like the game and want to complain. We DO like the game, we just think that it is kind of crazy how they want to charge us $10 a month AND make us pay for crowns when the game hasn't even been launched yet. There are games I can play that have already been launched and are free with added benefits for those that want to pay when they CAN, not monthly.

      A lot of you are saying that those of us who don't want to pay are just "complaining" which isn't necessarily the case. This is our chance to show KingIsle our opinions on the matter. If our opinions help them with their decision, then good deal. If not, then at least we were able to let our opinion show.

      If you are willing to invest the money asked for this game right off the bat, then that's great, have fun with it. However, just because we don't want to pay yet (which doesn't mean we never will) there isn't a reason to down us because our opinion differs.

      Also, please keep this on the subject of the paying system, I have seen a few drift off from that and begin to argue. If that carries on too much I'll have to start deleting posts. I don't mind discussion, but keep it at that.

      Very well said!

      I, for one, would like a little more information, especially about the discounted prices for the 6 and 12 month subscriptions. But, I'm waiting somewhat patiently :D to see what happens with that before I make any solid decisions.

      I'm wondering if I can coutine Wizard 101. Since my folks are aready paying for two toontown accounts. If I quit, watching my mom play toontown will want me to play again. Still going on W101 will want me to play Wizard 101.

      Yeah I like the game and I met a few people too as well as meet my friends neice some.. but I mean sure $10 aint asking "too much" but monthly it is sort of a bit high.. wile yeah they said lack of advertising I've looked around and seen gamefaqs and a few other site and they did say the head dev was in interviews ? So its got some advertising somewhere..

      Besides I'm a fan of smaller games tbh.. Look at runescape it started small and suddenly it became uhhhh well ewww lol...

      I do like 6 to 12 month subs thats at least more for your money.. also I would subjest if it works alright that maybe do like neopets and WOW did.. buying "credit" cards at a store like walmart and cashing them in as subscription fees and such.

      It would also help parents out who are a bit "edgy" with the credit card too and gives them a bit more of a comfert room instead of giving out information..

      (sorry for the long post =(o-o)=)
